PING SIGMA G WOLVERINE T
www.ping.com Headweight: 370g
Grip: Ping Pistol PP60 Toe hang: Face Balanced
TECH: New milled aluminium face inserts have variable depth and width grooves to deliver consistent across the face ball speed performance.
WE SAY: All manner of lines, circles and curves have promised better alignment, yet we’d say the Wolverine’s simple single stripe is one of the best we’ve ever seen. That’s because the line comes right up onto the top edge of the putter at the ball’s equator. If you draw a straight line on your ball it couldn’t be simpler to see whether your blade is set up squarely or not. Yes, the Wolverine’s head shape is wacky, but it’s exactly the shape needed to increase MOI and forgiveness.
VERDICT: Ping has obviously worked hard on the Sigma G range and the updates over previous Ping MOI putters are notable. The new PP60 flat-fronted grip is a great size and its sharp, defined edges mean you feel when the blade is square.
