Head weight: 350g Grip: Ping Pis­tol PP62 Toe hang: Strong

TECH: Milled from solid blocks of 303 stain­less steel and in­spired by Ping’s tour pros. True Roll face tech sees grooves milled to dif­fer­ent widths and depths to help speed up off-cen­tre hits to in­crease con­sis­tency.

WE SAY: The Anser 2 comes with se­ri­ous cre­den­tials. It’s a Tour­proven shape, the fin­ish is fan­tas­tic, it’s made from soft car­bon steel and we know Ping has pored over the new vari­able width and depth grooves for hours. But the mil­lion-dol­lar ques­tion – and the clincher to any po­ten­tial pur­chase – is whether it’s demon­stra­bly bet­ter than what’s gone be­fore. And that’s what our testers strug­gled to agree. We just couldn’t say for sure that dis­tance con­trol, feel and roll were any bet­ter (which could partly be down to the new su­per-sized grip, which felt huge on this style of head).

VER­DICT: It feels lovely and will do a very good job for those who take the plunge. But you can get ex­actly the same head shape in the Sigma G range, with the same grooves, for US$128 less...
