Ping B60 Putter
Golfers, if you prefer the performance of a steel face with an insert feel, take note that the from the Karsten series meets your criteria. It has an elastomer insert in the cavity to provide enhanced feel while still maintaining the solid response of steel-faced putters. The elastomer insert is placed behind the face instead of on it.
Think of the insert on this Ping B60 putter like a piece of lead tape in the cavity. It changes the sound and vibration of a putt, but it is nonetheless a steel-faced putter. Off-center hits would remain noticeable, but they would not be as harsh as they once were. The whole Karsten line of golf clubs gives a nice and solid click as you hit the ball. The weight savings from the cavity shape are redistributed to the perimeter to boost the moment of inertia for the B60 putter and thus produce added forgiveness.
Multilevel alignment aids are built into most of the models of Karsten putters. You can choose this Ping B60 putter over the other putters in the Karsten line because of its ease of alignment. The shape of the head, the cavity, and the alignment line make it exceptionally easy to aim directly at the hole.
A big problem with other putters is that the insert can be very inconsistent. You could make a putt that is three feet short, and your next one might be a couple of feet past the hole. Although this problem may not be as noticeable on putts less than ten feet, the problem is more pronounced on longer putts. The Karsten series’ Ping B60 putter is not afflicted with this problem and is very consistent as you putt from any distance.
The iN series of putters also has a Ping B60 putter among its ranks. This series utilizes innovative nano-nickel technology in the putters’ inserts, to produce a solid feel and sound and results in greater consistency. The B60 V2 is heel-toe weighted, and its head weight is 350 grams.
Chris Tidland, playing at the 2011 Puerto Rico Open, said he was kind of lost without his Ping B60 putter because it was the only putter he ever used his whole life, or at least since he was twelve years old, to be more specific. He had left his putter at home in Oklahoma. Luckily, Tidland’s wife shipped it to Puerto Rico for him. He tied for seventh at the event and earned a start at the Transitions Championship the following week.
