PING debuts new product lineup
Building on its reputation for innovation and performance, PING introduced several new products, including the Anser adjustable driver, which is offered in four high-performance shafts and the new Tour wedge with Gorge Groove Technology.
New products include the Anser line, which features adjustable drivers and fairway woods, a traditionally shaped hybrid and a forged, multi-material iron; Tour wedges with Gorge Groove Technology; and the Nome 500 long putter with an adjustable shaft.PING Anser Adjustable Driver
Anser Adjustable Driver
The Anser adjustable driver enables golfers to fine-tune trajectory through a combination of loft adjustment and shaft selection. Players can add or subtract ½ degree of loft and also choose one of four high-performance shafts to fit their swing profile – a process called Trajectory Tuning Technology.
The shafts are the PING TFC 800D, Aldila Phenom, Fujikura Blur Red, and the Mitsubishi Diamana ‘ahina. They vary in weight, stiffness profile, and the trajectory they deliver. A PING torque wrench is used to add or subtract 1/2° of loft beyond the standard settings of 8.5°, 9.5°, 10.5°, and 12°.
The adjustable hosel is lightweight and small in diameter to maintain the size and look of PING’s traditional fixed hosel. With its low-spin head, the Anser driver represents a fully optimised design solution that generates ideal trajectories for maximising distance and accuracy.
A straight-bias head rotation promotes square impact, and its low-spin design minimises sidespin for improved accuracy. The 460cc head is made of Ti 8-1-1, a light, low-density alloy, and has a non-glare matte-black finish.
- Drivers available in 8.5º, 9.5º, 10.5º, and 12º with plus or minus ½ degree of loft adjustment. Shaft options:
- TFC 800D graphite shaft (Soft R, R, S and X)
- Aldila Phenom 50 graphite shaft (R, S)
- Fujikura Blur Red 005 graphite shaft (R, S & X)
- Mitsubishi Diamana ‘ahina 70 graphite shaft (S, X)
- AU SRP: $500.00 per club
Anser Adjustable Fairway Woods
The Anser adjustable fairway wood features Trajectory Tuning Technology for adding or subtracting ½ degree of loft to the standard setting. To maximise distance and accuracy, the 17-4 stainless steel head has more surface area low on the clubface to make sure the ball contacts the club properly on the face.
A rear sole weight optimises the CG to promote a slightly lower, more penetrating ball flight with low spin, which adds distance and elevates the MOI across the face. The back of the sole is tapered to provide extra relief and ensure clean contact, even from tight lies, uneven lies, and light rough.
A traditional shape and a straight lead edge inspire confidence and make aiming easy. A dark non-glare, matte finish reduces distractions.
- Fairway woods available: 3-wood (14.5º), 4-wood (16.5º), and 5-wood (18.5º) with plus or minus ½ degree of loft adjustment
- Shaft: TFC 800F graphite (Soft R, R, S, X)
- AU SRP: $330.00 per club
Progressive CG locations in the 17-4 stainless steel Anser hybrids promote high launch and improved accuracy so players of all abilities can gain added distance and control. Through internal and external weighting, CG positions vary in the four loft options to produce the desired trajectory for extra distance and improved accuracy.
In the lower-lofted hybrids, the CG is slightly lower and farther back for higher launch and optimal spin. The higher-lofted hybrids have a more forward CG position to optimise launch conditions.
The traditionally shaped head is larger to increase MOI and inspire confidence. The lowest portion of the clubface is wider, most importantly in the heel and toe, for improved alignment and to ensure clean contact for more forgiveness and optimal spin.
A dark, non-glare, matte finish eliminates distractions.
- Hybrids available: 17°, 20°, 23°, and 27°.
- Shaft: TFC 800H graphite (Soft R, R, S, X)
- AU SRP: $300.00 per club
Anser Forged Irons
An 8620 steel body combines with a dense tungsten weight and internal cavity above the sole positioned close to the face to optimise the CG and elevate MOI. Predictable ball flights are achieved through progressive stabilising bar technology.
In the long irons, the bars angle out wider and are thinner, lowering the CG to launch the ball high. The bars get increasingly vertical and thicker through the shorter irons for more controlled, penetrating trajectories with high spin.
A progressive set design makes it easy to launch the ball higher with the long irons and lower with the short irons for precise, consistent shot making. Larger long irons promote forgiveness and higher launch; heads progress to smaller short irons for more control. Machined face and grooves.
- Shaft options: Project X (5.0, 5.5, 6.0, 6.5) or TFC 800i (Soft R, R, and S)
- Irons available: 3-PW
- AU SRP: $230.00 per club, steel or graphite shaft
Gorge Groove Technology and multiple sole-width options maximise control and consistency. The grooves are milled at PING’s facility in Phoenix, Arizona, to hold extremely tight tolerances that ensure a groove size and shape that provides golfers maximum spin.
The 17-4 stainless steel wedges are available in three sole widths: thin sole (TS), for tight lies, firm conditions and shallower swings; wide sole (WS), for soft conditions, from bunkers, and steeper angle of attack, and the standard sole (SS), for most turf conditions.
All three sole options offer the versatility to open or close the clubface to play most any shot. The traditional head shape features a custom tuning port in the cavity, which increases MOI and contributes to a solid feel across the clubface.
- Wedges available: 47º (SS), 50º (SS), 52º (SS), 54º (SS, WS), 56º (SS, WS), 58º (SS, WS, TS), and 60º (SS, WS, TS).
- Steel shaft: CFS (Soft R, R, S, and X)
- Graphite shaft: TFC 169i (L, Soft R, R and S)
- AU SRP: $170.00 per club w/steel shaft; $200.00 per club w/graphite shaft.
Nome 500 Long Putter
The Nome 500-gram Long Putter features an adjustable shaft that allows the golfer to modify the length from 44.5” to 54.5” using a PING wrench. The USGA/R&A-conforming telescoping shaft consists of a steel lower portion, a graphite grip portion and lightweight stainless steel locking ring.
By unlocking the shaft, golfers can optimise length to fit their body characteristics, stroke type, and posture. A black alignment bar and white contrasting sightline on the head make aiming easy.
The Nome putter is face-balanced and fits golfers who have a Straight putting stroke. It is precision-milled from high-grade aircraft aluminium and finished with a durable nano-nickel coating. The lightweight frame features tungsten sole weighting to optimise the CG and elevate the MOI.
- Long putter telescoping shaft self-adjusts from 44.5 to 54.5 inches
- WINN AVS 2-Piece grip standard
- AU SRP: $465.00 each
