Lofts: 46° / 50° / 52° / 54° / 56° / 58° / 60°

Head op­tions: TS; Thin Sole, SS; Stan­dard, WS; Wide, ES; Eye Sole

Shaft: Ping AWT 2.0 Wedge

TECH: Pre­ci­sion-milled tour­spec grooves have steeper side walls and sharper edges for max­i­mum grab and grip on shorter shots.

WE SAY: Where some brands are built around mar­ket­ing, Ping are grounded in engi­neer­ing. Their phi­los­o­phy is to study and bet­ter un­der­stand ev­ery as­pect of how golfers launch shots, and by do­ing so they be­lieve they’ll pro­duce con­sis­tently bet­ter prod­ucts. They’ve worked their magic with the new Glide 2.0s; they pro­duced not only the high­est av­er­age spin for two testers, but also the high­est num­ber (67%) of full shots over 10,000rpm. We loved how the white, bot­tom groove and darker groove area re­ally fo­cused at­ten­tion at ad­dress, and how the longer grip gives you con­sis­tent grip-down po­si­tions.

VER­DICT: Yes, the blade’s a frac­tion longer than some, but the head looks great and be­cause there’s plenty of op­tions we reckon any­one look­ing at spend­ing over US$128 on a wedge should try th­ese.
