Hello all,
I am new to this forum but I am glad I found it. I have been searching around trying to get some info on a putter head I have.

It's a PING Anser with the following info:

U.S. Pat 0207227
KARSTEN MFG. CORP
PHOENIX, ARIZ. 85029
MADE IN U.S.A.

I was wondering if it has any value? Especially since it's just the putter head. It's in very nice shape. I'm looking to sell it but I'm not sure what price I'm looking at. I hope there is someone here that can enlighten me.

Thanks in advance!

That putter is called the "dalehead" and is a good find.  That putter was made in the same mold as the original Scottsdale anser.  Can't tell you the value.  I have the same putter.  You can see it under BB92069's pings.  Very soft putter.  Good website is www.pongman.com

Okay, I was thinking what I have is a Dalehead but is somewhat different textwise. I think the grip has probably been replaced.
What do I have here?

Bogeyman, I have the same putter with a Ping Putter "Pro Only" grip (made by Golf Pride) in very nice condition. I've been thinking of putting it in play, but would like to know it's value before doing so. Even if it's not worth too much, it's a very nice looking putter and I'd hate to risk damage.

putter has good pedigree but does not have dalehead credentials...look at bumpers...dalehead has
slope not as square as yours

Well, I had my pro shop order a reissue Scottsdale Anser. I added two sightlines and had it made at 33.5". All for under $100. This putts as good as my old piece, just a new version I don't have to worry about having as a gamer. The face is so responsive. A nice compact stroke and the ball rolls nicely.

A great value for a putter that performs very well.  ;D

I found this putter in my grandfather's garage and if it's worth something, since he doesn't play anymore, I'd like to sell it and buy him something nice. I can't really tell which of the above it might be, but the numbers match. My guess is it's just a nice old-school Anser. One thing that struck me is that this one has Anser on the left bumper and Ping on the right. It's got the "Pro Only" grip and the Ping heel-toe balance shaft band.

Can anyone tell me more about it? He's also got some really cool Ping irons with Roman numerals instead of numbers on the soles.
