I mentioned this putter in another thread. No one seemed particularly interested in seeing pictures, but I wanted to share anyways because I'm kind of excited about it! :tongue:

It's a new from the factory Ping Zing 2 in Stainless. I had two heavy beryllium weights inserted in the sole and some extra tungsten powder down the shaft to bring it to my preferred 335g head weight. Also had it re-finish and paint filled white, to look more like the originals. It feels very different from my other putters, but I really love it! A big thanks to Peter Janes in the UK for helping me to modify it.

I picked up my Zing 2 this time last year and absolutely love it. I like the idea of adding a bit of weight. May have to look into it. Enjoy!

Thanks! I’m not really sure, but probably around 300-310.

That looks awesome! I game the Zing 2 and I've been flirting with the idea of adding weight beyond some led tap and this is good info! Best of luck with it.

That's a very nice putter. Love the thin top line.

Thats pretty pretty.
I have an old Zing in the basement. I used to really like it....then one day, before i knew anything about club building, I wanted to add some weight too it so i poured a cocktail of Gorilla glue and lead sinkers down the shaft. Now it feels like garbage and i heard they are difficult to reshaft because Ping used to use some kind of compression washer or something to hold it together.
Anyone have experience with re shafting one of these?

That's an absolute beauty in the OP. Never knew you could still buy them new.

I've got a Ping Zing 5, but would prefer the 2 with the neck shape. Have to keep my eyes open.

Picked mine up to go with a nice set of Ping Zing Irons I've got. 5-LW

I have a Zing2 Isopur2

High ‘smash factor’ for a putter...transfers a lot of energy to the ball.

Old PINGs are good. Often folks don’t realize is the lighter head is what is good about them.

Some are however ridiculously low head weight with swing weight still in the high C at 35”

Driver : TM SLDR430 10.5° Fujikura Speeder 65
3-Wood : Callaway FT 15° Neutral Fujikura FitOn 160

4-Hybrid : Adams XTD DHy Proto 24° Aldila RIP Tour HYB80
5-PW : Adams XTD Forged Aldila RIP Tour SLT115
Wedges : Titleist Vokey SM4 52° & 258.08 58° TT Dynamic Gold

No mate, my Zings are steel. It's just the light. They are in A1 condition tho, and look the bees knees.

But just appearing in left of the photo are my Becu Eye 2's :)
They are a half set 4,6,8,W.

I've also got a set of steel Eye 2, and a set of steel Eye 2+.

7 different old school Ping putters as well. 2x Ansers, Pal, Zing, Blade, O Blade and A Blade.
Gotta stop.....

Love the Zing 2. Putted my absolute best in high school with one, traded it when I was in college for the smaller Odyssey Rossie mallet and have been searching for the magic ever since. The last picture, of the 4 different versions of that shape, what is the last one? Thanks for the pictures and story.

Hi!

I drift away from the Zing style putters too, but always come back sooner or later. They just feel very natural, don’t they?

The last one is an Argolf Lancelot. If you look closely, it actually has a small plumbers neck-ish neck. But the shaft goes over the hosel and it only has a half shaft offset, so from address it looks almost like a zing style. I like it.

You absolutely should be excited about that, modern twist on a classic.

My local PGATSS has a few manganese Zing's on the shelf, stainless Anser 2's as well.
