    In my experience, those old PINGs are magnificent putters if played with light weight, old school grips. Modern 80+ gram grips throw off the swing weight too much.

    It still had the original Palm Lock grip on it and it’s not even hardened out

    Ebay's ok. I get most of my stuff from Craigslist at good undervalued bargains but the biggest steals I ever had is from my local thrift store.

    Another example of money well spent---- What makes it even better is when guys like you and the OP putt lights out with the old "outdated" cheap stuff. I work for a metal recycling company and find lots of old putters in the bins. The Santa Fe in my signature is a junk pile find and scrap was down at the time so I only gave 5 cents for it. Rusty and beat to crap but it does putt good. Drives the tourist golfers crazy with their new and shiny $$$$$$ Scottys.

    I'm Left Handed so I get some steals every once in a while.

    Epic 3Wood head with some swirl marks on crown - $15.50 shipped. Tried a few shafts and sold off after a few weeks.

    TM M4 Hybrid (Mint Cond) - $35 shipped - Had an A flex shaft and i changed to stiff for a few weeks, didn't like it too much so sold it off for about the same.

    I get really lucky finding heads sometimes. 915F 16.5 head only was about $22 shipped. I had a few Surefit adapters so was an easy club to test. I still use it.

    Ironic this thread comes up today as yesterday I was delivered by USPS my new purchase from eBay, a brand spanking shiney new Ping Anser 4 Milled for all of $65. Yeah I know its $40 more than the OP's putter but it's brand new! Thanks to the gentleman who sold it to me as he appeared to have a rather large stash of golf equipment to open his own store with. I'll be putting it to good use.

    I picked up a Karsten Ally 2 in nice shape for $13 + $12 s/h a couple weeks ago on Ebay. I wish the head was about 10g heavier, but other than that I can't complain about the purchase.

    I was watching the same post for a few days before you took it. Didn't really want to pay $36/shipped honestly. I know that sounds stupid but I don't need it, would have had to put a new grip on it, lengthen it an itch and bend it upright, so was looking at around $30-40 in cost on top of the $25 +11 shipping.

    This model is light, like really light, 290-310 gram head. Too light for most golfers, hints why it doesn't hold a lot of value in the marketplace.

    Either way, it's a pretty putter and I'm glad it went to a good home. Enjoy.

    Getting a 75g putter weight to go in my SuperStroke grip was a game-changer - complete confidence booster. And it wasn't even $25!

    Yeah... or just keep buying more cheap putters. I'm using a Nike Method Core MC-05W which is similar design, heavier head weight. But I prefer putters without inserts, so my next purchase will probably be a Odyssey Protype #6 (33" 350g model) as soon as I can score one for cheap.

    I also prefer non insert putters and for a matter of a fact I do not like milled faces either. Guess that is why I putt with old school putters. For now a Wilson Forged 600 has kicked Scotty out of the bag and yes it was a scrap yard find and I have 5 cents in it too. LoL if I had found it a week later I would have only had 4 cents in it. I will lead tape anything in a heartbeat to get it like I want it to feel

    I bought a TP Mills milled putter from Play It Again sports for $15 about 10 years ago. But purchase I’ve ever made.
