This is an interchangeable weight putter that allows up to Nine different weight combinations. There is a pair of 12, 20 and 28 gram Tungsten weights. This Weight Kit was purchased separately in addition to the putter. It was $110.00 Canadian before tax. Today as they are rare to find new they sell for around $150.00 or more.
I also have with this Vintage 2008 Ping Zing Putter sale, two Brand New Ping Head Covers.
One is a Vintage 2008 Black Cover adorned with Mr. Ping characters in different colours. The iconic Mr. PING logo created long ago by PING Chairman & CEO John A.
Solheim takes centre stage in this popular special-edition putter cover emblazoned with creatively arranged Mr. PING logos spread across in multiple colours.
Features: Special edition, 100% polyurethane, Magnetic closure
You cannot get this style in the multi colours as it was a special limited edition.
With a value then of $95.00 cdn but now as they are rare and hard to find and long discontinued, that value could be double or triple now.
The Other Putter Cover is a Michigan State Spartans Black Putter Blade Cover that reads "Go Green, Go White". With a Letter S on it as well as the Spartans Logo. (value $55.00 cdn).
And the putter in 2008 new in the store was $236.00 tax in at Golftown. TODAY as this putter is NOS (New Old Stock) and is 10/10 Mint condition and now vintage its will be worth much more. I am guessing based on seeing exact ones both that have sold and as listed are around $150.00 in a condition of around 6/10. This one must be worth around $400.00 cdn at least. Ones in great shape but USED with marks are selling for $200.00 US dollars. Converted that comes to around $275.00 cdn USED and marked up.
So the total value of this putter package would be around $700.00 as a modest number (Putter, Weight Kit Set, Two Putter Head Covers).
I will sell this whole package for a good deal less. For the ad price.
I assure you 100% that this is the cleanest Mint Never Used 10/10 condition Ping Zing iWi Putter you will find anywhere online currently. I am guaranteeing it!
If you are interested in anything separate I can see if we can come to a number.
The PING iWi Putter Review: Interchangeable Weights Could Help Your Putting:
At first you might think the PING iWi putter has another one of those odd-sounding names the company has been coming up with lately. After all, what in the world is an "iWi?" Although some of PING's putters have "normal" names (the PING Anser and Scottsdale Wolverine putters are two examples).
But, the "iWi" in the name of this putter actually makes sense, as it stands for "Interchangeable Weight Inserts."
Here's the scoop on this putter.
By now, we all know that many club manufacturers have adopted some form of moveable weight technology in their clubs. The trend began with drivers and then moved into fairway woods. Basically, by moving adjustable weights, the player is able to alter the club's center of gravity toward the heel or toe of the club. The intent is to make it easier to hit a draw (or combat a slice) or a fade (or stop a tendency to hook).
Well, now PING has gotten into the moveable weight thing with some of its putters. In theory, the Interchangeable Weight Inserts in this putter allow the golfer to customize his or her putter for their own, individual putting stroke.
A word of clarification is in order before I go deeper into this review. There are actual six different models of iWi putters: the ½ Craz-E, the Craz-E, the Anser, the D66, the B60, and the Zing. Although each model has a different style head, they all share some common features. Each one comes with two 12-gram stainless steel sole weights and a two-piece face insert consisting of 304 stainless steel backed by a layer of elastomer. An optional weight kit (sold separately for around $85.00 cdn) includes two 20-gram tungsten weights, two 28-gram tungsten weights, and a wrench for swapping out the weights.
Nine different weight combinations are possible, so the customization options are pretty impressive.
The "Zing PING" iWi putter is a toe-down model designed for a strongly arcing stroke. That pretty much covers the bases as far as types of putting strokes. Assuming you buy the optional weight kit, you can choose a "base" PING iWi putter that matches your personal putting style and then use the weights to optimize its weight distribution.
I tried the Ping Zing. I hit a number of putts using the stock weight configuration before making any changes with the optional weight kit. The balance was nice and the club's traditional appearance gave me confidence at address. Feel and sound at impact was probably the best I've ever experienced with a putter that has a face insert, although it didn't feel quite as "pure" as an all-metal face. My putts rolled straight, smooth and true ... well, as straight as my putts ever do.
Then I whipped out the adjustment wrench and fiddled around with the interchangeable weights to see whether I noticed any difference.
Swapping the weights was easy and did result in some noticeable changes to the putter's balance and feel. And, if you're consistently missing your putts in one direction or the other, you can change the putter's heel/toe weighting to help you square the face at impact. I do have to admit that although it's nice to have such a high level of customizability, I thought the standard configuration was sweet enough, and maybe even the best setup for me. If I was buying this putter I think I'd skip the optional weight kit and use the money to buy some balls.
The Bottom Line: The PING iWi putter models and their Interchangeable Weight Inserts are marvels of modern putter design and technology. Optimizing the weight distribution for your stroke can enhance the putter's feel and just might make your putting more consistent.
I can also ship this anywhere in Canada.
