2021 Ping vs Sigma 2, also PP60 lamkin????

Recommended Posts

Fell in love with a putter at the PGA SS , I’ve been a mallet guy forever. Grabbed the 2021 Anser 2 with the larger Lamkin PP60 and was making tons of putts. But I just can’t stomach 279 for a anser. 
Has anyone hit the 2021 against the Sigma 2? How do they compare?


I am sure the tungsten toe weighting on the 2021 makes a big difference.

 

 

also I loved the Lamkin PP60 grip but I cannot find a good photo anywhere of it. Is it a 1 off for Ping or is it a rebranded sink fit?

I felt like the insert on the sigma was not nearly as good- too soft and plastic like.

The 2021 models with the tungsten weight up by the face feel way more solid and in my opinion, puts a better roll on the ball

i played this summer with a 2021 tyne c but I've recently replaced it with a center shafted white hot pro #7 (the big headed 7) that i picked up from callaway preowned.

I hate, HATE inserts especially soft/mushy ones. The Sigma 2 has to be one of the worst feeling inserts for me I've tired, the 2021 I'd say is much more tolerable that 2 layer on the insert is much firmer than the Sigma 2 second layer.

The 2021 Anser 2 will feel slightly firmer over the Sigma 2 due to the removal of the TR grooves on the face insert, otherwise the hardness of the two-piece insert is exactly the same.

 

The Lamkin PP60 is specifically made for PING, not a rebranded existing grip.  PING was looking for an improved feel over the urethane covered PP60 but still retain the intended grip mass, Lamkin was able to deliver both using a rubber-based cover and light-weight core.

As has already been said, the 2021 will feel a bit firmer.

I played the original  Sigma G Kushin for several years ( just got knocked out the bag this year)

I tried the Sigma 2 and was too mushy.  It had no feel to me.  

 

The most recent one is a lot better than the Sigma 2

The ball had a great roll to it, but I had trouble with distance control.  The ball flew off the face for me.

I still like the original one the best in terms of feel off the face.

Agree on this.  Try the Sigma G with the old PP60.  Better insert than Sigma 2 and 2021, cheaper and the old PP60 is a great grip.

    • Sony Open Pics from January 11, 2022 Part 1
      I was able to get out to the Sony Open today to take a few pics.  I guess due to Covid precautions they kept the spectators pretty far from the players.  Also due to camera restrictions they've put in place, I wasn't able to bring the big lens like I normally do. Hopefully they'll ease up on the ropes and I'll be able to get more pics tomorrow!
