REVIEWED: Ping Anser hybridJuly, 2012
Ping's new hybrid is the only non-adjustable wood in the Anser line
Completing the Anser range of woods is the hybrid, which is the only club in the range not to be adjustable. Available in four lofts ranging from 17˚ to 27˚, the idea was to incorporate many of the characteristics and performance benefits of the i20 hybrid, but with a little extra forgiveness, especially in the stronger lofts.
Some find the 17˚ version, in particular, hard to launch, especially from less than perfect lies, so the Anser has been engineered to to offer a higher flight.
Nevertheless, the performance will be much closer to i20 than G20, which has a very different look, sound and feel.
The head looks a little larger at address – and the shape has shades of the i15 hybrid about it. The standard shaft is Ping’s TFC 800H.
LOFTS: 17, 20, 23 & 27˚
