A review of the PING Karsten 1959 Anser 2 putter

PING Karsten 1959 Anser 2
Golf Monthly Verdict

An understated offering from PING that won't stand out at first but will produce consist results when it comes to distance control. Game improvers should try Ping's larger headed, heavier design as apposed to the PING Karsten 1959 Anser 2.

The Karsten 1959 series takes PING's most popular models and updates their technology. The Anser 2, with heel-toe weighting, enhances feel with a soft elastomer cavity insert.

The PING Karsten 1959 Anser 2 offers excellent value from a trusted brand but the finish won't catch the eye.
