Ping iWi
Key Feature: Sure, these putters have interchangeable weights that cater to any putting stroke, but that’s just the beginning. Other features include a two-piece face insert with elastomer backing and a steel surface for a soft, yet solid feel at impact.
What We Like: The adjustable weighting is awesome and very simple. But it’s that face insert that really impresses us.
Who It’s For: Golfers who want to fine-tune their putters on their own.
Specs: Comes in six models, ranging from the Craz-E to the Anser.

Who It’s For: Fans of Solheim’s timeless putter designs.
Specs: Comes in five models: Anser, D66, Piper, ZB and Zing.
