Just received my dadís oldie but goodie Ping Anser 3, from Nor_Cal Putters in Auburn, CA. I would have rather sent out a Scotty for him but other than a JBlade also by Ping, this was his longest gamer. They offer a ton of different looks at really decent prices. I had the face milled (not originally milled), initials stamped, and red paintfill on sight line and initials. Black paintfill was used in original Ping Anser 3 stamp and Pings patent etc on back. But now my fear is this is too shiny and too nice to game. Maybe even over the top? Iíve included a few pictures at different angles of address to catch the light. I may be forced to shadowbox or display this one and take a more muted approach on the JBlade.

Thoughts? In the end itís up to him but I feel in the middle of the day it may be too distracting for him and his playing partners. Hell maybe those teeing off behind him, those ahead of him if they look back, and The ISS if anyone is aboard it these days!

Lovely putter. What model of Iomic grip is on it?


Thanks! Weíll see come Christmas what Pops decides to do with it. Going to go ahead with getting the JBlade done for him in case.

i-Classic Mid 72g.

Actually learned something when I went to separate the putter head from the old shaft. Discovered the ball and pressure lock in this putter head. Does Ping still do this? Kind of cool.

DSG employee/buddy warmed up the hossle and used graphite shaft extractor. It took some time but eventually came out and would caution anyone against doing the same! :)  No damage to head or socket, and since I was not keeping the shaft I wasnít worrried.

Shaft is now sad in the corner.

Edit: How could I forget this? Not giving Nor_Cal enough credit, here are the before of the head as well.

Vault Voss w/ PP58 grip is the best putter I have used in a long time. It replaced my pre insert fully milled Scotty Cameron.

Yes, Ping did the work. Sound slot goes through the cavity rather than the flange.

how different did it feel after the sound slot ?
why did you opt to go thru the cavity rather than the flange? what difference does it make ?

I donít understand why Ping does their slots that way. Straight through the flange wouldnít be visible at address if it was right against the face/hidden by the back of the top line.

Just into the face would be fine as well.

Seems like the extra cut just wastes a few more grams of head weight.

The cavity cut sound slot drives me crazy! It doesn't give the same resonance as the flange cut, and gives the putter a terrible feel IMO.

I'm not the original owner, so the cavity vs flange slot wasn't my decision. Personally, I'd prefer a flange slot like the old Ansers, but honestly, I'd rather not have the sound slot on the Redwood as I think it takes away from the milled feel. If it was a cast putter it wouldn't bother me.  I was looking for a nice condition Starshot Redwood and this thing looks brand new.  It didn't have the sightline, so that plus the sound slot made it more unique. The price was right and I couldn't pass it up.

It likely wasn't the original owner's decision either.  I've received soundslots from PING on my Karsten Anser, Karsten Piper, Redwood Anser, Redwood Piper, and Vault Arna and they have all came with the soundslot in that position.
