Ping anser forged 2 and S55 irons
« on: November 28, 2013, 08:57:46 PM »
ping opened up a performance fitting center in my local driving range,
got to test all of their irons but what stood out was the ping anser and S55
irons. both had the optifit system and tried a variety of shafts surprisingly
the best fit for me was kbs tour V.

the anser forged 2 really took me by surprise, nice compact shape almost like in between
the 302 AND 502, VERY sleek and had a nice mid sole width. likes these a lot.

the s55 is semi blade and playeresque, very very little offset but sets up nice. i am really impressed
with the new ping offerings. i find the s55 more forgiving than most of the JDM blades i have hit
which is pretty much expected due to the tinyish cavity. i wil try to borrow them and hit them on course
and try to get some numbers in the monitor.

really impressed with ping, dad has been bonafide ping forever. i think they are USDM's JDM:)

Ping seems to be a "daddy thing" ;)
My father plays those Ping Anser "2" irons, they really look good, feel awesome and a very forgiving. They arenīt much cheaper than most JDM irons, but they arenīt any worse either.

S55... was really surprised by these as well. We got them in the fitting center and besides the pretty clean look, they almost feel forged and are pretty forgiving. Took the 6 iron to the range and course. If I hadnīt two nice sets of JDM irons, I would have gotten those. Love the good old Ping ZZ65 shaft.
