Doesn't quite have the feel of my TP Mills SS, but nevertheless I like it and will put it into play.

I think the original Ping Anser/Anser 2 styles are every bit as good as the more current milled versions that are out there. The only thing that seems to hurt them today is the lust for heavier putters. I frankly think the heavier putters (350+ gm) hurt most players in the area of touch. Most of the older ping heads were in the 330gm or less area and most seem to be 35" or more.
If you putt with an arc stroke these older versions are sweet!

But what I have found is that I have lost my lag putting touch due to the heavier head weights of today. It's almost like trying to roll a pea with a sledgehammer, no feel. I have tried and tried (all of this season) to get my Cameron to work for me but finally went back to my Anser Ti pixel out of frustration. You guessed it, my touch came back immediately.
Really like the looks of a CNC putter, anyone's CNC putter, but they simply are too heavy for my stroke.
