Ping ANSER Irons! (FORGED)

Welcome... good to see another Chicago guy on here!

 

You bring up a very interesting point. Ping frowns upon adjustments being made to their clubs by third parties but with the forged does that mean customers will have to ship their babies back to Ping for loft/lie adjustments on a frequent basis. That would get old and expensive real quick!

 

 

Agreed. As much as I like the look of these babies, and I'll bet I will love the feel.... I would rather not have to send back once or maybe even, gulp...... twice a year for loft and lie checks/adjustments..... I don't know. I work at a local Golf Galaxy here in the Chicago area and the PING rep was here recently and was still "hush hush" about the clubs. I want to hear his take on this subject.

BTW... Not only does PING frown upon 3rd parties doing loft/lie bends... The metal will traditionally will not hold that bend for all that long. Going back to the heat treating process that PING is known for. I haven't been to Phoenix to take a tour, but I hear it's cool to see them do work to the clubs... to "shock" them out of their "memory" and then re-bend them to "learn" their new position.... Sudden urge to book flight to Phoenix, lol.

I have a friend who is sponsored by Ping. He got pissed when i told him about these irons because he just got i15s a week ago. He hadn't heard of the ansers

 

That doesn't surprise me....from my post above about running into the rep.

 

The rep was in my club's shop and when I mentioned the forged Ping, my pros looked at me like I was crazy -- then the rep confirmed what I said and pulled up some pics on his cell phone. Didn't seem like he was even going to mention them to the pros.

You will be able to get them but they are in limited numbers so they will not be in every corner golf store.

I could definitely play these. I mean, its not a blade and the shape that I would prefer but even the tour players are beginning to play more forgiving, larger clubheads. I think that I could get used to a larger shape if it meant a forged PING iron.

These look pretty sweet. I have been a big fan of PING for about 5 yrs and went from the S59's to the S58's (still playing them) Looks like they are somewhat similar at least with the slightly smaller face and thin top-line. Guess I will probably never know since I jumped ship and got a different set of irons. I am sure these will be a hit regardless

Do you think that this will play out like the limited Cameron runs, or more will be available than that?
