I just noticed this on PINGs website and did not see any information on this one in any of the new PING threads. I guess this one flew under the radar. Interesting.

I thought that just means that it will fit all three stroke types, not that there will be three versions. That's my interpretation at least.

Either way, I like the alignment aid on this a lot, even if it does look like a TM rehash.

The single bend shaft is cut at different lengths:  longest = face-balanced version, shortest = strong arc version

same head, same shaft, different trim lengths

This is fron the PING website;

"Precision-milled at PING in Phoenix, Ariz., the Ketsch offers unprecedented distance control, extreme forgiveness, and accurate alignment. Variable-depth grooves equalize ball speeds across the face, an innovation called True Roll (TR) Technology. A captured appearance at address inspires confidence, and contrasting sightlines simplify alignment. A 17-4 stainless steel sole weight creates a high MOI."

Looks like it comes in the 3 different bends for different strokes and the adjustable length shaft is also an option.

It reminds me of the Rife IMO from a few years ago.  Should be interesting with the weight pulled way back with the sole plate.  I will give it a roll, but do not see it making the cut.

I had a nome tr adjustable.  Just didn't seem to work as good as my TM spider. I'd like to find a ping mallet to put in the bag. I was debating tm dll but would rather find a similar ping putter.

I wish they weight was adjustable as well. Might still give this one a try.

Agreed. You know, I wish those jacktards would wake up and put out a center-shaft offering.
