Best wedge I’ve hit in a long time. All around a wonderful wedge. Feel , spin and sole designs just work for me. Nice compact size too.

I think TXG did a review of these vs. Glide 2.0!?

 

They did. Weirdly enough the spin was quite a bit lower than the 2.0.

Lower spin maybe true. I haven’t hit mine in a monitor. But I do carry them a little farther. Which to me is a good thing. I’ve never looked for extra spin from a wedge. Always trying to control the spin I have.

Me personally I like the slightly larger club head of the Glide 2.0 Wedges. Need some new wedges this year and Glide 2.0 are top of my list mainly for this reason.

 

For someone who wants a more compact Wedge, the Glide Forged are really good looking wedges.

 

Have only hit the Glide 2.0 but if PING makes it, it isn't going to suck...

Damn. I might need to check them out. I generally love the Glide 2.0’s but I spin them much more than I’d like. I’m Constantly going up a wedge and hitting easier so I dont suck the ball back off the front of the green.

Fantastic wedge! Soft, loads of spin and forgiving. Goose neck hosel makes these set up perfect. Only downside is the lack of additional bounce and grind options. If you are a standard 10* bounce user these are great.

I like them better than anything else I've tried. I've never had the urge to change to anything newer and that's saying something for me.

I believe the ping glide 2.0 won the most wanted wedge 2018 over at my golf spy... seems like their wedge game is really stepping up

 

They're very nice. Unfortunately the stock shaft is very light and whippy if you're used to heavy wedges. I was hitting moon balls with them. To the point that I would literally never take a full swing with them. Ever. Great for forcing me to dial in my partials. I've back to Vokey now and loving that I can get the full swing results I was missing.

Have tested some demo wedges.

 

The gooseneck hosel, which admittedly a lot of / some people like made them unusable for me.

 

I hate any sort of offset in my wedges.

 

IMO glide 2.0 perform much better & I like the slightly larger head size.

 

What does goose neck hosel mean ?

100% agree.

 

It's really interesting on one hand it seems like Ping is maybe changing and starting to fit a different demographic having changed product cycles then making all of these forged projects, blade irons etc all. I can't help but wonder how strong Marty J's personal influence is? At the same time he qualified for the PGA I think primarily with clubs he designed? Congrats Marty Jertson that's a dream come true keep at it!

 

From another angle maybe they are doing exactly what Ping has always done? Either way it's interesting to see where this is going.

 

Nice interview with MJ

and only 514 watches so far.

By ‘gooseneck’ I mean that the hosel into head transition sort of bends back into the larger amount of offset.

 

It’s a look I have never liked.

Hmm. Don’t really see any offset in mine. Do you just mean the transition from hosel to face ?

 

Not arguing by the way just curious on how different people see things differently.

Exactly yeah, the transition mainly. not sure what the offset numbers are, but looked to be a lot more on it than on my glide 2.0’s.

 

Mizuno short irons have historically given me the creeps for the same reason...

I have the glide forged in a 50 and 54. Definitely the best feeling wedges I've ever played. Ive actually found they spin very well, especially on short pitches and chips

 

Only complaint is they're only in a satin finish so sometimes the glare is very bad. I think all the time about sending them in to get refinished to a matte black or matte bronze finish.
