The Heppler line by Ping are constructed of a premium copper and black finish, which provides contrast and visual appeal. The visual cues also make the alignment lines stand out to aid the player in aiming properly at address. The machined flat faces have a firmer feel and sound, and depending on the model, can either be aluminum or steel. The combination of both aluminum and steel throughout the head leads to strategic weight placement and a higher MOI (moment of inertia). The adjustable length feature has been reinvented and has a firmer feel with less flexing. The player can customize the length and lie of their model from 32" to 36". The shaft is an eye-appealing black chrome.
The Piper Armlock is a smaller, heel-shafted mallet, with a low center-of-gravity. The steel heel and toe weights, integrated with the aluminum body, leads to a high MOI. The double bend shaft provides some slight toe hang, and the elongated shaft length allows the player to secure the grip against their lead forearm in a fashion known as armlock.
