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.
In order to succeed in delivering a high MOI in a blade putter, a large section of the cavity was carved out and the steel heel and toe ballasts are larger than the previous ZB2 model. The alignment dot was based on research showing that it was more appealing and lead to better results for players with a strong arc and face rotation in their stroke.
