That helps narrow the cost between the i20's and Anser irons, then.

I keep hearing no upcharge for shafts, but when i go to Golfsmith's website and do their custom club order process it is adding and upcharge of $30 per club for PX flighted.  That's insane if so.

I wish we could get a definitive answer on this, also.  I heard no upcharge for any shaft, except for PXi.

The definitive answer was given July 24th, the day this post began by bjackson.  There is NO upcharge for shafts with the exception of PXI.  I was not charged for my Modus 3's when I got these clubs.  Golfsmith has it wrong.

Well if it were so definitive retailers (multiple at that) wouldnt have the wrong information.  Glad to see that you werent charged for shaft upgrades.

First round with mine: 3-pw, left handed, kbs tour 90, 1/4" long, D3.

Really nice clubs. Made all the shots. An improvement over the original Anser forged better looking and the mid- short irons seem more like player's clubs.

To be honest, other than looks and the knowledge (not the feel) that they are forged, performance is just about the same as my i20s. That said, and to all the complainers about the price, they were not that much more than the i20s would have been with the same specs. And maybe there is an edge in performance and feel that I will see after a few more rounds. And they really look great.

Selling the i20s...

Just wondered what sort of street price you guys have seen on these?

No quoting sources please as we all know what happened to discount dans where I bought my mark 1 Ansers from but curious as to how far below 1500 bills you can custom order 8 irons for

Just got my new set yesterday. + 0,5 inch Coulour code Maroon, CBS Taper in xflex. Having played the old ansers for one season I can say: A LOT BETTER LOOKING! more of the players club that i was looking for. overall excellent, especially with less offset now. The perfect match seems to be the c-taper. the looks combined with the anser head had peoples heads turning. Love the stiffness of the shaft and its feel. For some reason it just feels a little lighter than my old px 6.0 ? Can´t be by looking at the specs, but could be that I just can´t feel the head (due to the stiffness) the same way as before? will get adjusted for sure and couldn´t be happier! Pics to come later.

Ping are exteremely keen that retailers of their products do not discount and are also not fans of internet sales. Discount Dans were offering the best prices around on Ping product and some of their competitors complained to Ping and their account got suspended. That's why I stated not to name retailers in the post, as I'm not trying to encourage a thread that gets other retailers accounts suspended. Read this http://www.golfwrx.c...+discount +dans

I'm gonna go out on a limb and say you didn't pay for them but if you did those are some pricey sticks!  Nice, my favorite iron shaft right now.  Really good in that head too.
I have 2 sets of the Anser, with the regular project X 6.0 and the new PXi. Lets just say I got a really good hook up.

Interestingly enough, the PXi does not seem at all too much lighter.
PXi you can def. feel the load in the shaft and the ball flight is a touch higher in the long Irons and shorter in the short irons. Thus, with the trajectory differences, more carry and thus more yards.
I will have launch monitor details this weekend thru track man. But all in all, about 3 to 4 yards better in distance.

I received my set of these today.  I am very pleased with the purchase.  Received 5-PW with PX and upgraded grips, cheaper than I could have upgraded the I20s with the same specs.  I owned the original Ansers and must say although the changes are very subtle, they look much cleaner at address.  Especially the short irons which are more rounded and look fantastic.

Played 9 with them tonight and the feel is about the same as the originals, but again I am very pleased.  Distance if good and forgiveness is excellent for a players club.  I also have AP2 712s with the same shaft.  I would say the AP2s are a little softer feeling, but the Ansers are slightly more forgiving.  

I think these are worth every penny and the Ping customer service is superb.

I have them in the X100's They feel great, and very forgiving on misses hit thin.   Great penetrating ball flight, great distance (mine are bent weak for traditional lofts) I really enjoy these irons.   Unless the S55 are special (which I feel like they will be rebadged S56's.) These will be in my bag until I have browning on them.

I would be interested depending on the lie.  Are they standard "black dot"?  What are you asking and why are you selling?

You will get a lot of different replies to this. Predictably a number will say they don't feel anywhere as nice as their Mizzies, or harder than Ap2's yada, yada. Feeling is subjective and so Endo forgings are clicky vs Miura forgings which are softer and each is personal taste. Anser 2012 is NOT one of the softer forgings, but it feels absolutely fine to me as you are in no doubt when a shot is well struck and when not and I would put it in the AP2 category for forged, which is the crossover group that is not as soft as traditional forged blades, yet is not as harsh as cast

It may have been already covered here, but how do the Ansers compare to the i20's?  I have some i20's with CFS Stiff, but I'm considering the Ansers with PXi.

Hi, I'm currently playing the old titleist 704.CB, would the 2012 anser be more forgiving? Considering between this and the AP2.
