Ping Anser Forged irons launched

The Ping Anser Forged irons have been redesigned with a number of new features

ANSER iron

The Ping Anser Forged irons are the follow-up to the first forged Ping iron in more than 40 years and feature a new progressive design. Stabilisation bars in the back of the Ping Anser Forged long irons help lower the centre of gravity and launch the ball on a higher flight. These bars get increasingly vertical and thicker to help produce a more penetrating flight with high spin.

The Ping Anser Forged heads also get progressively smaller through to the short irons, to offer more control in the scoring clubs. The forged steel body features a dense tungsten weight and a hollow sole. This combination is designed to provide added forgiveness, but with a forged feel.

The Ping Anser Forged irons (£160 per club) will be available in 3-PW with Project X 5.0, 5.5, 6.0 and 6.5 steel shafts and TFC 800i graphite shafts in Soft R, R and S flexes.
