Ping 2024 Anser D review

When you’re in the market for a new putter there’s always one place you need to try, and with the new Ping 2024 Anser D available it’s a great place to start.

Ping have created a putter shape which has stood the test of time in the Ping Anser since 1966. This shape is a traditional blade shape which we see even in the modern game today. The Ping Anser has evolved over the years with last year 2023 Ping Anser 2D with a soft Pebax insert and wider profile to the new 2024 Anser D. 

This latest model in the new 2024 Anser D is what I’ve had my hands recently and it is brilliant. 

The First Look 

Looks wise it has that classic Ping raw blast finish, beautifully milled, with that traditional shape. It is slightly wider than your average blade but there is a good reason for that that we’ll get into. The classic plumber neck goes hand in hand with this design and the sole has mirror stripe down the centre to give it a little simmer.

The Tech 

The one thing you will notice straight away with the Anser D is the head shape.

This is slightly larger than your standard blade and somewhere in-between a blade and mallet design. This design was inspired by consulting Tour Pro’s and their feedback created this deeper profile shape. The intention is to give you more confidence over the ball and also with the larger shape delivering more forgiveness with the extra mass.

The milled face has a shallow milling which delivers a firmer feel and a consistent roll.

With the weighting and balance of this design it does suit the player who has a slight arc in their stroke as there is a small amount of weight in the toe. The weight in the overall head is 360g which is 25g heavier than the Anser 2 which is your traditional blade shape, but it is closer in weight than some of the bigger mallets.

The black alignment line looks great at address with the raw blast finish contributes to a pleasing look when over the ball.

The bunkered Verdict 

I’ve had a number of Ping Anser putters in the past and if there is one thing that stays consistent is the shape and look.

When you pick it up it feels like a Ping and looks like Ping. It is very well balanced and what I love about it is the consistency of the shallow milled face. It’s not a ping when it comes off the face, it more of a solid acoustic but it has a pleasing sound when you hit it off the middle and even off centre.

It does come off the putter face firm but still feels soft which I really liked and I felt like I was able to close to the hole on those longer lag putts. It’s a great looking putter, that feels great, sounds great and if you’re looking for a classic blade that has forgiveness Ping have the answer in the Anser D.
