Best Anser style putter for the $$

Recommended Posts

I am looking for a new putter and wanted something simple like an Anser style putter. I am currently using a scotty Red X which I really dislike but really cant afford to get anything to expensive. Looking for some suggestions for a new LH Putter

I second the suggestion above for the Cleveland Huntington Beach, great putters. Maybe look for a deal on a Taylormade TP Juno, I've seen a few floating around on that big auction site in the sky for $100 new. Dig deeper perhaps and look for a NOS Kevin Burns, great all milled putters that can usually be found for around $110.

Instead of an Anser "style" why not actually get a proper Ping Anser?


There's so many models over the years im sure you will find one within budget

You can still buy a brand new ping Anser for under $100. These are the old style, cast with sound slot and no sight-line with a ping man grip and no head cover. (You don't really need one) Some will find these too light by today's standards.

You might want to consider the material of the head if feel is important. Carbon vs Stainless Steel or even inserts all give a different feedback.

to further expand on drjacob's post, it would also help to know what kind of feel you're looking for. if you want really soft, then there are several odyssey iterations available second hand. but for a non-insert, it's hard to beat the cleveland huntington beach or the previous model classic line.

"for the money" is a very relative suggestion, but I offer this:


In the milled arena it's hard to beat the Bettinardi BB or Ping Vault 2.0 for $300. Pay anything more and you're just buying a premium/custom boutique name because you can.


And for a regular putter (which these days means something at $200), O-Works 1 and Sigma G/2 Anser would be good options.


All of the above except the BB series have had some use on the Tour which says enough to me.

Ping Redwood Anser (the matt black finish is especially nice);

Ping Anser Milled (choice of 6 hosels);

or, if you can find one, Ping Anser JAS WTi (a thing of beauty).


All of these slightly older models have modern headweights and a nice, solid feel off the face. For me, the recent Vault and Sigma G lines feel too soft and somehow dulled.

  • PING G400 Max set to 8* Tensei Orange 60g S
  • PING Anser 17* 20* hybrids TFC 800H-S
  • PING i500 4 iron 19.5* Blue Dot Aldila Rogue Max 85H-S +1"
  • PING iBlade 5-W Green Dot CFS 80-S +.75"
  • PING Anser Forged 50, 54, 60* Blue Dot DG Spinner +.5"
  • PING Anser JAS Wti 35" PP60

The HB are a great value, but if you like a firm putter, they’re not for you. The deep milling make them very soft. I’m a big fan of the Redwood line. Aesthetically pleasing and offers great feel.

Ping G400 Max 10.5* w/ Rogue Black
Ping G25 4W w/ TFC
Ping G25 20* Hybrid w/ TFC
Ping ie1 4-U w/ CFS

Ping Glide Stealth 58* ES
Ping Anser Milled 6

Anyone pulled the head on a newer PING putter?


I just pulled an old Dalehead and they put a ball bearing down in the hosel. It's a mother to pull.


OP, I've been checking real Daleheads on eBay and the prices are all over the place. The only reasons not to buy the real deal: if you can't deal with the sound slot, if you want heavier than 330 grams, if you like a different sight aid (could be modified). If you're still looking in a few weeks send me a PM. I'm selling a few from my collection.

Just found a brand new OG White Hot #1 on eBay for $65 including shipping. I'm hoping it's as amazing as you say it is!
