This stainless steel hybrid is similar to Ping’s new Anser driver in certain ways, yet strikingly different in others. Both sticks, for example, are more forgiving than their i20 counterparts and more workable than G20. However, the Anser hybrid has no built-in hosel adjustability. Why? Ping says it’s easier for clubfitters to bend a fixed hosel for lie angle. In addition, a hybrid is used for specific distances. Robot testing with “Pingman” reveals that the Anser hybrid launches shots higher than the i20 but lower than the G20. Specifically, the Anser launches shots 1° higher than the i20 with 200 rpm more spin, which translates to 4 yards more carry.
Lofts: 17°, 20°, 23° and 27°.
