Ping Sigma G D66 Putter Review: You should know
New milled aluminium face inserts have variable depth and width grooves to deliver consistent across the face ball speed performance, which Ping says helps reduce your 3-putt potential. Feel is enhanced by a high-energy elastomer insert behind the face, and a new PP60 grip naturally fits more into the palm and fingers, lightening grip pressure and tension.
Ping Sigma G D66 Putter Review: We say
The D66s got more than its fair share of toe hang which means it’s well suited to golfers with at least a degree of arc in their putting stroke. All three testers warmed to the heads simple lines, and the single white alignment stripe, all of which you’d typically expect of a traditional blade model. A compact blade length and narrow head mean it’s unfair to expect forgiveness to be anywhere close to the levels of an MOI shaped putter. None of our testers thought the D66 didn’t look good and pack in plenty of desirability for golfers who aren’t out for a full-on forgiving putter. Our test pro reckoned he’d want a really nice premium or soft compression ball to go with the D66s firm face and feel. Thanks to the heavy sole radius (toe – heel) it encouraged a lower hand position, which is worth remembering if you have a tendency to putt quite upright.
Ping Sigma G D66 Putter Review: Verdict
Ping are masters when it comes to putters and the D66 is another excellent model in the Sigma G range. If you’re a fan of compact and simple traditional blades with a sprinkling of modern face and groove tech it should be right up your street.
