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 Tomcat 14 has the highest MOI of any model in the Heppler family. The alignment dots were inspired by an airport runway, and get closer together towards the back to simulate motion, assist in eye tracking, and frame the ball at address. The center, heel, and toe are cored out, then wrapped in steel to provide stability.
