Just popped into golftown today to take care of some business. I picked up a few putters off the rack..rolled em...And really got to liking some of the newer Taylormade and Odyssey offerings.

I'm a big PING guy. When I picked up one of the new vault 2.0 Pipers...I also really liked it. Looks great...rolls great, but the prices read 399$!!

399 + tax is basically 450$ CAD or $360 USD.

Is anyone considering buying these right now? Many of the taylormade and Odysseys (and other brands) are still under $300. Spend another $50 and you have a scotty that holds its value much better.

Any thoughts? Would you buy?

I think the idea when pricing is what works the best, the "Cameron Collector" has changed putter and the respective so called value recently.  Back in the day Ping putters were some of the best around in more recent years with specific player contracts more players migrate to Odyssey and Scotty's due to the paycheck where Ping does very little if you are not a staff player.  So going back to the initial question if it works pay the price I know we have all heard this before get fitted, feel the putter etc.  I can say with great confidence there are no members on this board that wouldn't spend an extra $50 or so if that putter works best for them.  Better yet make a circle P Ping putter only made to touring pros with different paint, headcovers blah blah blah and they can sell for 2k and guess what we buy them, then retail a very similar version for $400 and we buy them as well.  Welcome to the crazy golf industry!

I understand all of what you are saying. I hate scotties in general...also think they are way overvalued. I do recognize however that here is a market for them. Fair.

I have purchased two brand new ping putters...maybe 3 and 4 years ago. Both were much less than $300 after tax. I think an off the rack putter at that price is worth it.

I just think they are missing their target audience with $400 putters that look and feel very similar to the same putter 3 years ago.  I don't play with a single person that has a ping putter.  I believe they are good putters...but their new prices...not so much.

Ping has produced a premium putter that costs $300-400 for the last 20ish years. This is nothing new.

They still have very reasonable priced putters under $200 USD like the sigma line.

I agree I just checked their pricing and only really one line is in the $400 range, again if it works we all spend on golf.wrx.  With the sigma line it does target all areas, but lets face it P Reed just won the Masters with a $100 putter.  I literally am as big of a ho as anyone else but really can not understand the Scotty cult I saw one for $27k the other day, really??

Vault 2.0’s are $299.00 at my local Edwin Watts.  Not sure why ther are so much more expensive for you guys.

I purchased the newest Ping Anser, not the Vault, for under $200 at Golf Galaxy. I like it better than the Vault, which felt too heavy for my liking. Just extended it today to 36 inches and it feels great! Have been using Ping putters forever.

The Scotty 009M is basically a copy of the new Ping Vault Dale Head.

I would preferr the original, all milled Dale Head with changeable weights. If only the face were traditionally milled....

Well..299 with the exchange is like $390. Then we add 13% sales tax here.  So pretty close.

They are nice putters...which is why I grabbed it in the first place!

Love the look and feel fo the new Vault 2.0s, but not @ $400. Sigma G for $250 works just fine for me.

I love old PIng putters. Somehow, their old castings (especially the BeCu's and BeNi's) had such nice feel they still rival a lot of modern putters. My BeCu Anser 2 and my BeNi Anser feel nearly as good as my Byron Morgan's.

Modern Ping pales in comparison IMO. The Anser inspired every putter maker to follow. Now there are a lot of companies that make a better Anser than Ping. I would feel crazy paying $300-400 for a Ping putter. The Vault 2.0 Dalehead was a huge disappointment for me. Sadly, a lot of others copy old Ping better than Ping.

When I bought my Sigma Doon, the guy at PGASS told me that with most of the Ping Vault putters you can find a similar performing putter in their lower lines like the Sigma or Cadence putters. That"s why I ended up with the Sigma Doon over the Vault Ketsch 2.0.

You can keep going with that logic down to a beat to crap bullseye. Itís all putterpath and speed. Now, I spent the money for a Dale Answr and I prefer it to any Scotty Iíve had including two 009ís.

How is a putter Cameron's made for years a copy of a NEW ping model?  And yes, I know the 009 shape is a riff on the anser.  Yes, Ping originated a lot of modern putter designs that pretty much every company now sells but that Vault putter is a Scotty knockoff, not vice versa.  Milled construction, fancy milled face, changeable weights in the sole.  Those aren't Ping innovations.

Well...the PING iwi was i think 2007 or 2008, removable weights/weight kit..so we dont know who copied who.

A milled putter tho...not sure Scotty was the pioneer there either.

We could change this thread to why I wouldn't pay $500 for an otr scotty...similar story tho

The isi came out in 2008.  Same year as Cameron's Studio Select line, but those putters were out on Tour for a year or so before the retail version appeared. And that Vault has weights that look like the Camerons not the isi.  And no, Scotty didn't invent the Milled putter.  TP Mills usually gets the credit for that.  Ping didn't start selling milled putters until the Redwood series in 2006 or so.  By that time Titleist had been selling Milled Cameron's for over a decade.

Have had mine for a few weeks now... could not be happier with this putter.  I was on the road to start collecting Scotty's but after the whole Club Cameron debacle, I decided to switch directions and look at some Ping putters.  I went in looking for a Sigma to save some money but the feel sucked compared to the Vault 2.0 for me... I was happy to spend the extra money on this one, fantastic putter.  There are plenty of other putters out there that people happily throw more money at... Byrons, Scotty's, all of them.  The Vault 2.0 line is no joke if you're looking for a premium putter.

This may be true as I think the copper is mostly a special order color.  

I have the same as Orlando above but ordered a black shaft for mine and will be throwing a Ping Blackout on, too hopefully....

It's a shame a certain golfer didn't keep with his original Anser putter, whose pingman grip he grew so very fond of as to continue its use on another company's flatstick..... Circle P's may have actually come to fruition, or something very, very similar....

I've been considering getting an older Anser or B60 to add to the collection. I found a barely used Vault black original for $150 and I will say it's a friggin laser beam on the green. Scalpel accurate, plus I like the feel.

Those are like 330gs. Most people aren't looking for that weight any longer. If PING sent out an original looking Anser...pingman grip...at 350 or 355g i would buy one.

Some of my absolute favorite all time customs are the tungsten weighted answers by the wrx....I love them.

I have a Oslo Vault I got used in mint condition off kijiji for $200cnd.  Very good putter. I demoed it in golftown and bought it used later.  That way I can use putters and sell them without a loss.

I just bought a stealth Anser Dale 2.0. Love it! Much different feel than my redwood but still good.

81 Ping,


I had a similar experience the other day. I was in Golf Galaxy, looking at putters, and pulled a Ping Vault 360 2.0 copper off the rack to try. Tried it because of the copper finish. Liked it, and might have bought it if it was around $ 100. When I saw the sticker, I was kind of surprised, but not shocked as all the companies seem to be vastly overpricing clubs these days. That being said, it was only OK, and I found the Huntington Beach from Cleveland put just as good a roll on the ball for the aforementioned $ 100. Bought the Cleveland.

I love old PIng putters. Somehow, their old castings (especially the BeCu's and BeNi's) had such nice feel they still rival a lot of modern putters. My BeCu Anser 2 and my BeNi Anser feel nearly as good as my Byron Morgan's.

Modern Ping pales in comparison IMO. The Anser inspired every putter maker to follow. Now there are a lot of companies that make a better Anser than Ping. I would feel crazy paying $300-400 for a Ping putter. The Vault 2.0 Dalehead was a huge disappointment for me. Sadly, a lot of others copy old Ping better than Ping.

My SC Studio Stainless Newport 2 agrees with you. And i gamed a Ping Anser for 10 years.

A little late to the original but there will be enough that will buy the vault not like it then sell it for a loss. Wait and watch different sites because you can usually fine a great used one for 30-50% off new pricing.

The Scotty 009M is basically a copy of the new Ping Vault Dale Head.

I would preferr the original, all milled Dale Head with changeable weights. If only the face were traditionally milled....

How is a putter Cameron's made for years a copy of a NEW ping model?  And yes, I know the 009 shape is a riff on the anser.  Yes, Ping originated a lot of modern putter designs that pretty much every company now sells but that Vault putter is a Scotty knockoff, not vice versa.  Milled construction, fancy milled face, changeable weights in the sole.  Those aren't Ping innovations.

The TR Milled face is a Ping innovation . And it works.

The Vault face is a bit of a rip off of Machineís VMG face. Everyone borrows or steals of whatever weíre calling it.
