Ping Putter Reshaft

I need to reshaft an older Ping Anser putter (straight shaft) for a customer. 1. What diameter is the shaft? 2. Does anything special need to be done to get the shaft out and install the new one? I’ve heard that some Ping’s have a ball bearing at the bottom of the shaft but have never had one like that. Thanks.

Jeff,

It is .355″. The ball bearing may need to be punched out from the bottom of the hosel by drilling a hole in the bottom of the hosel and using a pin punch to knock it out. Try pulling the shaft the normal way first though.

Regards,

Jeff
