The Anser driver with adjustable loft offers you the ability to fine-tune your trajectory through a combination of loft adjustment and shaft selection. We call this Trajectory Tuning™ Technology. Using a PING wrench to loosen the clubhead and adjust the loft, you can easily add or subtract 1/2º of loft to the standard 8.5º, 9.5º, 10.5º and 12º settings. Choose from four distinct high-performance shafts.
Trajectory Tuning Technology allows you to hone in your launch angle and spin rate to increase distance. When adding loft, the face angle closes slightly; when subtracting, the face angle opens slightly. However, our Trajectory Tuning Technology minimizes face-angle effects. This lets you fine-tune the height of your trajectory by changing loft before a round to suit the playing conditions, the weather, or changes in your swing.
The body of the traditionally shaped 460cc head is centrifugally cast into a complex, variable-thickness geometry from Ti 8-1-1, a light, low-density alloy, which yields extra weight that is redistributed to increase MOI on both axes. A variable-thickness face helps generate incredible ball velocity. External sole weighting positions the CG low and raises the MOI, which provides a mid-high launch that adds to distance and forgiveness. Its straight-bias head rotation promotes square impact, and the Anser’s low-spin design minimizes left or right curvature to help drives find the fairway. It has a non-glare, matte black finish.
The size, efficiency and simplicity of the hosel sleeve provides the benefits of adjustability (±1/2°) without sacrificing the performance that’s often lost in clubs with larger, bulkier hosel designs.
Lightweight The hosel design is optimized by using a lightweight titanium screw and aluminum hosel sleeve. The design maintains the same outer diameter and mass as PING’s traditional fixed hosels.
Designed for Distance
To ensure greater clubhead speed, ball velocity and distance, the curvature of the crown was optimized in the 460cc Ti 8-1-1 head. This geometry reduces the size of the turbulent wake, which minimizes the overall aerodynamic drag.
Four Shaft Options
In addition to loft tuning, shaft fitting is an important step for optimizing launch and ensuring a driver with the correct weight/balance combination, feel, and timing that lead to consistency and comfort. With the Anser driver, PING offers four performance shafts: our proprietary PING TFC 800, the Aldila Phenom, the Fujikura Blur Red, and the Mitsubishi Diamana ’ahina. They vary in weight, stiffness profile, and the trajectory they deliver.
PING TFC 800D
Blended in their weight and trajectories, PING’s TFC 800D shafts are uniquely engineered to maximize performance of the Anser drivers. From a higher-launching soft-regular to a stout, lower-launching extra-stiff, the TFC 800 series fits a wide spectrum of preferences and abilities, from beginners to tour players.
Aldila Phenom 50
Speed-generating lightweight shaft has a livelier feel and enables increased launch angle and spin. The Phenom is a great fit for golfers looking to lighten the overall weight of their driver, boosting clubhead speed to kick the ball up in the air.
Fujikura Blur Red 005
Medium in weight, Blur Red is a slightly high-balance-point shaft that offers a solid, stable feel through impact. The combination of greater clubhead speed and a mid-trajectory ball flight produces long, accurate tee shots.
Mitsubishi Diamana 'ahina 70
The ’ahina delivers extreme stability through impact with a solid feel for faster-swing players who hit the ball far but want the added control and accuracy associated with a lower-launching, flatter trajectory. The stiffest option, the ’ahina offers a tight feel that will appeal to precision-minded players.
