The Ping Anser Milled putter range is the long awaited upgrade to the original Anser putter and a welcome sight given that it is one of the most copied designs around.

We really like the idea of the classic Anser head being adapted to suit all different types of putting stroke through Ping's Fit For Stroke putter fitting concept. Used in conjunction with the excellent iPing App it is possible to get a guide on which of the different Anser Milled models will suit you best.

On the green the feel of the putter is light and you get great feedback at impact. The different hosel style really do make each model feel very different according to the style of stroke you have.

However it is not all black and white as I came out with a straight stroke on the iPing App but the Face Balanced #5 model did feel unusual as it was at the other end of the scale from my usual Toe Down putter.

Others with a slight arc loved Slight Arc putters and do not want to be parted from them, so therefore trying before you buy is very important as getting the length and lie correct with Ping's excellent adjustable fitting putter at official stockists.

It would be nice to see more variations in the Anser Milled styles for the Face Balanced and the Strong Arc as currently there is collectively a choice of 3 between them, but that may come in time.

The only other issue we can see is the price, which with an RRP of £239 is very high for what is essentially a steel putter that you can get in a similar style elsewhere for less.

However if you do have the means, then the Ping Anser Milled is a very good putter and well worth considering.

Just bought a Ping Anser 5. It won the competition against Scotty Newport M1. Amaaaaaazing roll. Butter feel. Gentle rock of the putter head gives unprecedented roll.

I run into this putter Anser 3 on a yard sale for $40. I fall in love with it right away. I love the feel of the face and I love the look.

I have been a ping putter owner for well over 30 years. Simply the best putters on planet earth, copied millions of times into every putter company's newest models. The Ping Milled putter line gives you great feel superior fitting capabilities and all the best up to date technology you can be assured on from Ping. Keep up the good work there are no substitutes only the best Ping

I was looking for a putter 2 months ago and tried out this one. Immediately I fell in love. The feel is unreal and the ball just jumps off the putter face. The weighting for me is perfect. Every single stroke I make with it feels like I am gliding through the ball without any effort. This putter brought my handicap down from a 7 to a 4.

Buy one today and see what magic this putter is capable of doing with your game.

I was looking for a new putter after falling out of love with my Yes! Callie putter. The new milled face on this Ping Anser is perfect. It is consistent and has a great feel. The classic look of the Anser is unmistakeable and whilst this putter comes with a hefty price tag, it is definitely worth a try.
