What we say...
The Anser has been going strong for over 40 years and after our test, is still clearly a big hit with golfers with this Ping Karsten Series Anser putter model. It's also available at a seriously affordable price which has to be another big tick in the box. The Anser has been cast in many forms over the years and its latest Karsten Series incarnation offers a plain steel face backed up with an elastomer insert in the back insert.
It was interesting to find that it lost some ground in our blind feel test when compared to so many models with all the latest insert technology but it’s hard to fault such a classic.
For golfers preferring the performance of a steel face with an insert feel, the Karsten Series meets the criteria. An elastomer insert in the cavity provides enhanced feel while maintaining the solid response of a steel-faced putter. Weight savings from the new cavity shapes were redistributed to the perimeter to increase each putter's moment-of-inertia for added forgiveness. Multi-level alignment aids are designed into most models.
