Ping Anser Forged

From Golf Magazine (October, 2012)
Designed for: Low- and mid-handicappers
The multi-material Anser is engineered to deliver the feel and look of a forged blade with the forgiveness of a cavity-back iron. The club boasts a soft, forged 8620 carbon steel body with a 40-gram tungsten-nickel sole weight and hollow cavity inside the head. This combo shifts the center of gravity (CG) more rearward to increase inertia and to produce a higher ball flight than a traditional muscleback. Its hollow cavity also redirects impact stresses away from the face, to enhance feel. The rear cavity has “progressive support bars”—short-iron bars are taller, wider and more vertical to reduce vibration and create lower launch, whereas the long-iron bars are shorter, thinner and more horizontal to lower the CG for higher launch.
