SPOTTED: New Ping Vault 2.0 putters

Published

on

Ping unveiled new “Vault 2.0” putters on the PGA Tour at the 2018 Sony Open in Hawaii on Monday, and forum member tod071 was there to capture photos of them all. The Vault 2.0 putters, as their names imply, are likely replacements for the Vault putters that were released in 2016. The original Vault release, however, consisted of four models — Anser 2, Voss, Oslo and Bergen — that were fully machined from 303 stainless steel. Judging by the photos we shot at the 2018 Sony Open, it appears there’s some additions to the Vault lineup in the 2.0 versions, as highlighted below.

While we do not have tech information on putters at this time, check out the photos below of each of the putter models, some of which appear to be offered in platinum, slate and bronze finishes. Also, join the discussion here to see what GolfWRX members are saying about the Vault 2.0 putters.

    Scotty has brought back the Laguna but only for tour only. It’s the putter Tiger used to win so many tournaments. Pings look weak and stale compared to the strong Scotty’s like the Laguna.

      The Laguna is just a variation (less charitable people might say “copy”) of the Ping “My Day” which dates back to the 60’s, you do know that, don’t you?

      Scotty hasn’t done anything successful that wasn’t first a Ping or Wilson TPA design.

      I’m a Scotty Newport 2.5 user. I don’t have a Ping or Wilson TPA putter in my collection, just before anyone screams bias or hater.

    Just purchased a Counter-balanced Doon. It has the “ping” of a 1-A, and a very clean look. The ball rolls perfectly off the face without any skid, and the added weight gives me a very smooth stroke.

      “without any skid” you say? That’s impossible and testing has shown that the ball skids in the first quarter to one third of the length of the putt regardless of putter and face design.
      The added weight will only give you a smooth stroke on long putts because you are swinging faster. On shorter putts the added weight will cause your slower stroke to wobble, and that’s a fact.

    All these Ping putters look the same from previous models sold in the 1990s. Does anybody else see the similarities? What makes these Vault putters so special now in 2018? Anybody?

      Try looking into the tech of the putter face. These are not your typical no tech scotty cameron etc. Who cares if they look the same… they roll the ball much purer and more consistently regardless of where yous trike it on the face. Ill take that all day

      • ralph

        The face milling on these putters are not high tech and it will not roll the ball purer and more consistently if you hit all over the face. That’s because the milling is different from heel to toe. You must hit it on the sweet spot to be consistent. That seems so obvious.

      Yer a childish show=off gearhead and probably a fake too.

      How do you like the i200 blades? I have been very tempted to pick up a set.

      • ImaPlayah

        Jan 10, 2018 at 7:48 pm

        Go ahead because you will not be disappointed. They are sweet irons.

    Did I miss something in the article about price?

    • PaulG

      Jan 10, 2018 at 7:52 pm

      They are somewhere between $400 – 500, but they don’t come with an instruction manual. You have to figure out how to putt with them.

    Anyone know if they’ll be Sigma 2.0? Copper Tyne would be sick.

      Beryllium copper would be “sick”. Plain old copper is ho hum.

‘Did one length irons ruin my game?’ – GolfWRXers discuss

Published

on

single length irons

In our forums, our members have been reacting to a post from WRXer ‘Alj92’, who is wondering whether switching to one length irons has ruined his game. Alj92 says:

“I played one length irons (King F9) all last season – about 80 rounds. In 20 years of golf I’ve never hit it better, even when I played well as a kid. 

Because I could not find left handed wedges (anything above 48*) or a 4/5i (anything less than 23*), I sold them at the end of last season. 

This year I switched to ping g425’s. Complete confidence, consistency and launch over the 6-7-8. Smash them. But I am struggling immensely with the 4/5 and 9-LW. Long irons thin weak slices, short irons strong pulls. Nowhere close with alignment. 

Did I kill my swing with the one length irons last season? Is that…possible, or does it make sense? Or is this just an expensive validation that I am a prime candidate for one length?”

Our members have been giving their take on the post in our forums.

Here are a few posts from the thread, but make sure to check out the entire discussion and have your say at the link below.

  • lefthack: “Maybe just use traditional wedges with one length irons?”
  • GatorNate11: “If I had to guess, your brain/body have probably just adjusted to that length. Give it some time, maybe get a couple of lessons in, and I’m sure you’ll find it again. Unless you made some sort of wild change in your swing with or without realizing it, it’s probably just a feel/visual thing tbh.”
  • Fairway14: “Buy yourself a set of one length irons and wedges.”
