The Anser golf 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 9.5º or 10.5º settings.

Ping’s first-ever adjustable driver gives you the ability to tweak loft (standard, +0.5°, -0.5°) for more consistent, longer shots. The Anser’s titanium body (Ti 8-1-1) is lighter than commonly used Ti 6-4, so more mass can be redistributed to increase MOI and reposition the center of gravity. In addition, the Ti 6-4 clubface has variable thicknesses to aid performance on off-center hits.
The Anser—more forgiving than the “better player” i20 but slightly less so than the “game improvement” G20—has an effective MOI that’s 9 percent greater than the i20 on mis-hits struck high or low on the face. The club’s launch and spin characteristics position it between the i20 and G20, too: The i20, for faster swingers, has a mid-launch, low-spin flight; the Anser generates mid- to high launch and low spin; the G20 produces high launch and mid spin.
Lastly, the Anser has similar aerodynamics to the i20. Both heads have a curved crown that limits drag (more apparent with faster swingers). By contrast, the G20 driver has a flatter crown and a bigger profile.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.
