The Anser fairway wood allows you to adjust the loft using Trajectory Tuning™ Technology. Utilizing a PING wrench to loosen the head, you can add or subtract 1/2º of loft to the standard settings of 14.5º (3-wood), 16.5º (4-wood), and 18.5º (5-wood). Trajectory Tuning Technology helps you optimize your launch conditions to increase distance and accuracy.
With Trajectory Tuning™ Technology you can add or subtract 1/2° of loft beyond the standard setting. The sleek, lightweight hosel sleeve provides the benefits of adjustability (±1/2°) without sacrificing performance.
The compact 17-4 stainless steel head features a larger hitting surface to elevate MOI from heel to toe for maximizing distance and accuracy, even on mis-hits.
The hosel design is optimized by using a lightweight titanium screw and aluminum hosel sleeve. The design maintains the same outer diameter and mass as PING’s traditional fixed hosels.

Maximizing your distance and accuracy on long shots from the fairway is accomplished by matching the correct shaft flex for your swing. The goal is to achieve the correct trajectory shape with the fairway wood, which maximizes distance with the longer woods and minimizes roll with the shorter woods.
Generally, the same shaft type and flex as the player's driver will produce the optimal trajectory in fairway woods, but it is not uncommon for players to have a different shaft brand, type and/or flex in their fairway woods since they are ground-impact clubs and may perform differently for some players.

|360 ID8 Full Cord||The 360 ID8 Full Cord is a round grip designed to function with drivers and fairway woods featuring PING's adjustable loft technology. It features a firmer texture in the upper portion to help control direction, a softer texture in the lower portion for enhanced feel, and soft cord to enhance traction.|
PING offers a variety of grip sizes and styles to fit different hand sizes and texture preferences. Since grip size influences your wrist action, and therefore the direction of your shots, it is commonly used by fitters to affect ball flight.
PING color-coded grips are available in six different diameters, and can be further customized with grip tape according to your needs. Once the neutral grip color code has been determined based on hand measurements, golfers may consider smaller diameter grips to help control fades and slices, or larger diameter grips to help control draws and hooks.
With Trajectory Tuning Technology you’re able to fine-tune your launch angle and spin rate to gain yards on every drive. When adding loft, the face angle closes slightly; when subtracting, the face angle opens slightly. However, we’ve designed our Trajectory Tuning Technology to minimize face-angle effects. This approach 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.
Rear sole weighting optimizes the CG to promote a slightly lower, more penetrating ball flight with low spin, which adds distance and elevates the MOI for greater accuracy. In the compact 17-4 stainless steel head, a larger hitting surface elevates MOI from heel to toe for maximizing distance and accuracy across the face.
Adjustable Anser fairway woods allow you to fine-tune the loft +- 1/2º, a process called Trajectory Tuning Technology, to maximize distance and accuracy, explains PING Senior Product Designer Mike Nicolette.
