Last month at the FedEx St. Jude, Ping offered touring professionals in the field the opportunity to check out a new set of rackets. The general assumption when a racket surfaces on tour is that it has influences from some of the best players in the world. That’s half true – some designs have a round effect – with Ping’s 2022 racket line.

But unlike the Tour-inspired PLD, the 2022 rackets were initially created with the consumer in mind.

“We wanted to come up with a line that would appeal to fans,” said Bing Tour representative Dylan Goodwin. “It’s like there’s a line within the line. Some rackets have inserts, some don’t. The speed of the ball will be pretty much the same in every face, but they’ll have a different feel.”

Focusing squarely on the consumer, Ping sought to include a myriad of head, face, and alignment options to capture every player’s conceivable preferences with a completely different look and feel. Offered in 10 different models ($300 per racket), the 2022 rackets are, as Goodwin said, truly “a line within a line.”

The classic Ping Anser racket combines a two-tone look with a shallow face.

For example, many new models on the hammer and blade side (DS72, Prime Tyne 4, Shea, Tomcat 14) feature a color-blocking scheme where the platinum topline contrasts with the black bore, moving the focus to the front of the racket for the better. Aims. For golfers who don’t want contrasting colors, all-black versions can be found at Tyne G and Mundy.

As golfers already know, it’s good to have options. The same can be said for the face builder, which consists of a shallow milled face that features a tungsten weight – 23 grams total – on the lower half of the heel and toe, as well as a Pebax accessory (smooth edged or shallow milling) for golfers who prefer a softer feel when the influence. And for those who need the strongest feel possible, a smooth face is available on the Tomcat 14 hammer.

“We were able to add tungsten in the heel and toe to maximize stability and stability on some models,” said Goodwin. “So wherever we were able to, we did it to maximize tolerance for all players. But it is important to note that while the crunchy face and Pebax have a different feel, they still have similar ball speeds.”

Ping’s 2022 Mundy racket features Pebax inserts for a soft feel.

Various alignment aids can also be found on the Ten Bats. Single or multiple line alignments are paired with a two-tone color block to aid consistent alignment on seven of the models; Anser 2D, Mundy, and Tyne G offer a matte black look with different alignment offerings for golfers who prefer a simple, minimal look.
