Not the fanciest grooves out there, but I do like the feel of this forged PING wedge. Most of the PING wedges out there are not a forged product. Very pleased. Mixed feelings about the stock, SPINNER wedge flex. Felt good, but unpredictable out of sand and deeper rough.
Verified purchase: Yes | Condition: Pre-owned
This Ping Anser 56 degree is one of the best wedges I have ever purchased.
I bought this wedge because it was made by Ping and it matches my Ping Anser forged set of irons. The "spinner" shaft seems to enhance the spin rate, particularly on full shots into the green. It seems well balanced and, so far, I do not have any "dislikes" about the wedge. It also has a nice touch on finesse shorts near the green. It is a 56 degree wedge and I plan to buy at least one more wedge in the same series... probably a 52 degree gap wedge. I am very happy with this wedge.
Expensive, Nice, Accurate and very pleasing to the eye.
I probably paid to much for these but I'm the type of Golfer who has only played 2 sets for over 20 years, and since the wedge game accounts for almost 1/3 of my shots I decided to take the plunge. I loved the ashetics of the club and the fact it was forged. I've found these wedges to be extremely solid and accurate and look forward to playing these for the next 10 years. I'm anywhere between a 3 and 7 handicapper depending on time of year. Use to be scratch but kids and job have interrupted my competitive tournament days. I would recommend these wedges to those with a high budget. The feel is there and fortunately for me the accuracy is as I anticipated.
Best wedge money can buy
I initially started with buying a Ping Tour S pitching wedge and loved the way the club looked and felt. I then took the plunge and bought two Ping Anser wedges. Although they are a little more money, they are phenomenal wedges. There is no doubt in my mind these clubs have taken off a couple strokes per game. Bottom line these clubs look great and play even better. If you have the budget, they will not disappoint.
Great wedge. shots hold well
I bought the club for a stong gap wedge and sand shots, great club but not much bounce for sand. Great feel/feedback on good shots as well as miss hit shots. Love the satin finish.
