Golf Asia (Malaysia) - - GOLFING | GEARGUIDE - Head­weight: 360g Grip: Ping Pis­tol PP60 Toe hang: Mod­er­ate

TECH: Alu­minium face in­serts have vari­able depth and width grooves to de­liver con­sis­tent across-the-face ball speed per­for­mance.

WE SAY: Ping’s Sigma G range comes in 13 dif­fer­ent shapes, along with a fur­ther two counter-bal­anced models, so it’s fair to say there’s a de­sign to suit ev­ery­one. A mod­er­ate toe hang means the Piper’s well suited to a slightly arc­ing stroke, and the fuss-free ap­pear­ance (just two align­ment stripes a golf ball’s width apart on the top) should at­tract a good deal of at­ten­tion from purists. We can’t say for sure the vari­able width and depth grooves helped us hole more putts, or im­proved con­sis­tency, but we did feel the Piper rolled putts along the surface along­side the very best, and all three testers thought the new grip size and shape was spot on.

VER­DICT: There’s five mal­lets to choose from in the range, which opens them up to a very wide au­di­ence. The Piper might not be the most ex­cit­ing de­sign on the mar­ket, but it is ex­cep­tion­ally solid across the board.
