Which of the Ping Glide soles would be closest to the i200 sole?  I want a 54° And a 58°. I know I want the 58 in the ES version. Not sure if the 54° should also be the ES or a sole that is closer to what I have on my i200 UW. I generally use the 58° for all greenside bunkers.

I'm not in the i200s yet... bought e1 irons shortly before the i200 release, but went with SS in the 54 Glide 2.0 & ES in the 58 at the same time.  Love the SS in the 54 for any full or 3/4 shots and chips & pitches from tight FW lies.  The ES in the 58 is great from bunkers and most lies in the FW or rough.

Great info. Thanks. Do you feel like you would be gaining or losing anything if you went ES on the 54°?  I guess another way to put it is how is the ES in full shots?  I tend to use the 54° for full shots.

Both the SS and WS will be closer to the I200 sole. The ES sole is quite different. For me the ES is great in the lob but I didn't like it as well in the sand. Here is a pic if an i200 u wedge a 56 WS and 60 ES.

The WS will have way more trailing bounce. SS is the way to go IMO

thanks for the input. I’ve been playing an eye 2 XG LW as my main sand club for a few years now. That’s why I was leaning towards the ES in the 58°. I could end up just getting my 60° bent flatter and sticking with that as well.
