Ping Anser Irons?

9 posts in this topic

Is it true that Ping only makes a limited supply of Answer irons?  I cant seem to find them anywhere to check out.  If anyone out there has a new set of these maybe a stupid question, how are they?  Can I goto my local shop and order a set?  I know theyre expensive.  I'm looking for a new set of sticks.  Coming off of X18's now. Thanks.

ive hit these many times at the golf store and they are great but not $1400 great. Every pro i have talked to says they dont perform any better than any other Ping iron. Tour pros dont even use them, they either use i20 or S56. There are plenty of other irons in this category that are just as good and much cheaper.

Yeah thats kind of the feedback I've read here as well.  Thanks for the response.  I'm gonna pass.  Narrowed down to Callaway Rzr forged or the i20s.

Would you mind if I ask you what irons are in your bag now?  As I mentioned I'm currently using the X18's now.  Tried the Razr X Forged and was pretty much "wow'd" the first time I hit them.  Just a really solid, long hitting club with forgiveness.  The felt very similar to my X18's with a lot more workability and power.  I tried the i20's thinking they could be my new weapon but I just wasnt seeing that explosiveness I got from the Razr X Forged.  They were nice but not exactly what I was looking for.  Thanks for your time again.

The Ping website had a place that told you what was in the bag of their staffers at one time. http://lockerroom.ping.com/pros.aspx You may have to create an account to log in and look at this. Not sure how up to date it is, still shows Bubba using a G15 driver...

Something fun to look at if you're interested.

Nike Pro Combo Cb. They are similar to the Razr but chrome instead of satin. And the cavity in the long irons. The heads are smaller with a thinner top line too.

I SAW SOME KNOB WRITE A STORY ON HOW BITCHEN THE 1400.00 ANSER IRONS ARE......... DID I SAY KNOB? I PLAY I20 S AND THEY DO HAVE A FERRULE AND ARE A BETTER PERFORMING IRON WITH EVEN A THINNER TOP LINE..... WHY ANYONE WOULD PLAY THOSE OVER PRICED THINGS WHEN THEY HAVE SUCH A BETTER STICK? I PLAYED TEH I10S BEFORE AND IT TOOK LOTS TO BE SEPERATED FROM THEM. BYE!

I'm sorry. I was distracted by all the CAPS!

What was your point? You loved your i10's and you play i20's and you can't understand why anyone would want to play them when there are better clubs on the market. Okay. You are not alone in that opinion.

Knob = Noob?  Newbie?  Someone new to the game?

      I have one of these that I inherited from my dad. I think I am missing the pin. Sadly I don't think they make it anymore but one was sold on ebay for 61 clams. It may work for you if you can locate it.

      Putting skill is based on three things. Reading greens, hitting your target line, and distance control. Missing one out of the three can bleed into the other two and cause you to be a poor putter. I would say green reading isn't going to hurt you as much as having poor distance control or very inconsistent start lines.  My Edel putter influenced my putting more because I lost a ton of strokes three putting. That wasn't misreading greens for me.

      Here is another youtube video that is very simple and straight forward that I really like..concentrating on getting to the first position really helps me keep centered too....just short and simple

      So your prior experience didn't matter in getting the most out of it. That's good to know. Generally putting skills do also track with HCP (assuming a fairly balanced game) for the average population at each HCP. I think AimPoint has great value. I'm just not ready to spring for the big bucks yet. I think the visualizations they put out like the ones I posted are very helpful for golfers playing for a few years like me to get some of the basic concepts. I have a chance!  Interesting. I probably suffer from both, but distance control may have been a bit more of an issue, because I hadn't even correctly identified that my putter had an off-center sweet spot when I started.
    • Bought the wrong flex wedge... should I return?
      I hope it's not the club maker that was in that condition? In general, the salesmen don't really know anything about club making. Ask specifically for the club maker and he can do what you ask. In any case what @70sSanO suggested makes perfect sense, but I'm not sure how much you planned to cut. You'd need to cut quite a bit to get a different flex number. Here's my favorite shaft the DG. http://www.golfshaftreviews.info/index.php/dynamic-gold-golf-club-shaft-review/ Notice that you'd need to cut an inch or so to get kind of the same flex from one to the other. The actual difference is about 2", but you have to fudge the overall effect of having a shorter shaft. For instance, S300 might be perfect for your shorter irons, but might be too flexible for the long irons. That effect will be somewhat unpredictable and might require a lot of iteration.   A modern Wedge flex has a specific kick point. They have a strange taper to help spin the ball better. http://www.mizunoforum.com/viewtopic.php?f=4&t=1453 In the past there probably was no difference. . .   That's better only more expensive, and shortening from the tip will stiffen it only a little bit. If you are getting something like an S300, it might still not be optimal as it is generally lower launching. You might want to have a higher launching shaft for a wedge. R flex might have been okay. Give the R a good testing before switching out to see if you like the stiff more or not? My advice is to try a bunch of wedges (used or otherwise) at your local store to find one that gives you your best launch conditions for a wedge. I haven't done this myself, but I have many friends who have gotten them fitted and they love their wedges now. The stock Mack Daddy and MD 2 seem to be perfect for me anyway. Haven't tried the others as they were not on sale, but I would guess any of the stock shafts would be fine for me.
