The clean, linear design is attractive and appealing. Alignment markers help ensure sweet-spot contact on every stroke, and the putter construction allows for a solid feel on impact, with no hesitation or absorption of impact. Heavy clubhead also allows for straighter, more consistent strokes.
Success with the Redwood depends heavily on selecting the correct weight balance, and golfers who select the heel-toe or heel-shaft balance instead of the face balance may have trouble adjusting to the putter and finding the right tempo for their swing. Some players also may find the Redwood a bit heavy for their tastes.
The Redwood combines the best features of the classic Ping design with a contemporary look and feel. The quality construction and feel of the putter make it an excellent choice for established and beginning players, provided they take time to choose the correct weight-balance configuration when selecting their putter.
