I understand Ping is introducing new Glide wedges. First, there will be a all-black model. The wedge itself, in steel or black will have another "low" groove that is supposed to add spin. Anyone have more info, :telephone: i.e., dates of release, price, models, etc.? :smilie_ping:

So far there will be another Voss, B60, ZB, and my personal favorite Dalehead Anser. Satin, slate, and a new Copper finish will be offered. Really excited for the Dalehead Anser in copper, and yes it’s actually called the Dalehead Anser. Not just Anser.

Sounds like I will be picking up a couple more Ping putters in the near future. It will be nice to see a new milled version of the original dalehead anser.

The Glide wedges feel great in my opinion IF you get cushion in the shafts.

I don't have the Cushin inserts but find the Glide wedges feel perfect on half and full shots.  Not too hard at all.  Different strokes...The CFS shafts work really well.  Ping make good stuff!

The new stealth Glide 2.0 wedges will be carbon steel, not stainless.  So they should, in theory, feel softer.  

The G400 MAX driver will be extremely high MOI.  

No one has mentioned the new irons...?  ;-)

Possibly. ;-) More of the Crossover made into a smaller (than the Crossover) full set.  Not called the GMax anymore.

You must have gotten some kind of defective club.  My feel great.  Almost as good as a forged wedge.  They are the best wedges I have ever used.

I think they would sell great if paired with an all black shaft maybe even add some copper accent like the G's.

If the new regular G400 is the highest MOI out of any club, how much more can the Gmax really be???
