Ladies’ Equipment: Ping Serene Craz-E PutterJune, 2013
Madeleine Winnett tests Ping's new release
As this putter belongs to the Serene ladies’ range, it comes in similar matching shades of distinctive purple.
I have always loved the Craz-E head shape. It is so solid at address, never feeling like it is going to twist, and the long alignment line is a great visual aid to help you square up on the smallest target.
The putter feels very light, but you can feel the head – which I like – and it produces a very solid strike and roll. For short putts, it definitely inspires confidence. You can just pop the head behind the ball knowing it will stay there, and point the line at the precise spot you want to aim at. Then, slotting the putt in seems like a formality!
As a lady-specific putter, its standard length is also far more suitable for ladies than the men’s putters usually donated to them by their husbands!
