Ping Anser Irons?

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 

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.

i love the Razr forged, but the long irons arent forgiving enough for me

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?
