Caught wind of this putter on a Tour & Pre-Release thread....What exactly do we know about this model?  Obviously asking for photos would be a tall order.....but I'm a tall guy so if you got em, bring enough to share with the whole class. :)

I'm most curious about the face milling. I hope they move away from the TR grooves and whatever you call what was on the original Vaults and more towards a traditional milling pattern. Always thought shallow classic milling w/ the Pingman logo stamped on the face under the neck would be really fly...

It is definitely on the sales sheet for early 18 just confirmed it with my local shop. Finish's on the sales sheet were platinum, stealth, and copper. Hopefully it will not be just a PLD 1 putter with the vault name but a true Dalehead.

I've heard that this is a new copper finish they are using on the head as well.  The last PVD finish was mega gold.

Ping hasn't released a nice looking Dalehead Anser in a loooooooooog time. Most modern Ansers are boxy and too square with thin top lines, with none of the flow and softness of the originals. So many other makers do a much better Anser than Ping IMO.

They were kind of in the right track with the TR1966 Anser but the grooves and the awful gold finish killed it for me.

It would be nice to see Ping deliver on this one.

Fingers crossed they do a real Dalehead for the Vault line.

From the above comments, it's sounding like it will be plated which would be a bummer.  Hoping the "platinum" is just bead blasted stainless but PING also has a history of complicating simple things.

After the discussion with a sales rep, here is what I got:
-Precision milled, which will be more of a milled face rather than the original Vault lineup
-Each putter will be available in 3 finishes: platinum, silver mist, and black (these aren't the exact names but are the same finish)
-The Dale and ZB will be put back into the lineup
-A new weighting system is going in as well in the heel and toe, located on the sole. The weights will vary in color dependent on which finish you purchase, but they are interchangeable from 5-20g I believe
-New headcover designs, not that this matters in performance, but they do have some putter covers coming out that are more limited/custom/personalized, which the buyer can choose from

*P.S. I got to hold some of the putters in hand in each finish and the black finish is one of the best finishes I have seen. It has a flatness to it, but still has a good polished look to it. Sorry, no pictures to provide though.

Could you describe the actual head shape? How does it compare to previous Anser models from Ping and some of the more popular dale heads from other makers, like a DH89, 009, etc.

So they are moving away from the TR grooves in the Vault line? Back to the horizontal grooves, or something else?

To be accurate, I have a good relationship with this rep so let me check. And yes the grooves are moving more towards a horizontal.
