I've been itching bad for a Stainless Ping Zing 2 since I found out you can get them brand new. I might give it a try some time, but right now I'm doing well with my SeeMore, so don't really feel like messing around. When winter comes I might give it a shot though.
By the way, I really like the picture in your avatar!

I'm the same way, except with 330g heads. Spent a lot of time, $$, and testing to figure out that 35.5in and 330g works undoubtedly the best for me.

Those two factors exposed that all my putters now felt way too heavy. Out came an old Ping Zing and some lead tape! After a bit of experimentation I landed on liking a total weight of about 500g. So, with a 33.75" shaft and and a 60g grip I figure that gives me a head weight in the neighborhood of 330g (Please correct me if I'm off!).
Not quite as light as what you've got, but significantly less than you see in market these days!
Play what feels right, enjoy the putter!

At first, I had a few issues with it regarding distance control but that did not last long at all. Now, when I go back to a 330,340, 350 + putter, there is a learning curve issue to deal with and I find I am more comfortable with the lighter weight.
When I use a heavier putter, my takeaway seems a little jerky whereas the lighter putter is much smoother. I still fool around with the heavier putters but gravitate back to the lighter.
