I'm torn, need a couple of new wedges - 52 and 56 degree and have narrowed it down.  PX LZ shafts.  Have been a Glide 1.0 user for the last 3 years and happy with them.   My buddy uses the Mizuno s18 wedges and they're very nice.  Also match my 919 Tours.  The Stealths have some great online reviews.  Haven't hit them.

What wedges would you choose and why....?  Thanks

I would not choose the Stealth 2.0 forged because they are $285.00 each in Canada at Golftown.
I did buy SM7 @ $ 189.00 though.

Stealth 2.0s are $190, Glide forged are $289. OP, if you have 919Ts, go with S18s. Bounces would match better. ;)

They are all nice. I donít know why the S18 is not praised more. Mizuno makes excellent wedges. I thought the S5 before this one was super, but the S18 has an even better shape that is slightly more compact. No way I would pay the price for the Ping forged wedges. The Glides I like.

Had a chance to hit the S18 yesterday and really liked the feel, look and performance.  More grind options with the Stealth in the 56 however.  Can't go wrong with either, so why not go 52* S18 in the gunmetal finish and 56* ES in the Stealth?

That's so crazy it just might work!  Great suggestion.

I bought a couple S18's then stumbled across Rock Bottom Golf selling the blue T7 wedges for $70 new (lefty only) and ordered a 50/54/58.  I'd hit the S18 50 and it felt pretty good, the S18 58 is still sitting in the plastic.  Gamed the new T7s yesterday, having never hit them.  They performed awesome.  Buttery forged feel and my shots were checking up and coming back, something that didn't happen often with my other wedges.  Don't think you can go wrong with either one.  I've been hitting "blade style" wedges for a while so they feel more comfortable to me.  The S18s do seem a bit "chunkier" in size.

Mizuno hands down if you play the 919 irons. The stealth wedges flow better with ping irons due to their slot cavity and polymer inserts. So unless you want more feel on your irons and more muted wedges than donít do stealth wedges. Usually people go with more feel on the wedges. If you truely like the stealth wedges you should like the ping irons as well. Try i210 or Iblade. Both have similar design to stealth wedge

I have Mizuno MP32 that I game with my Ping Glides. The Glide stealth are awesome wedges. More forgiving than other options but still spin like crazy. Very soft feeling (the Stealth not the normal 2.0). I do feel like I'd go for a DG shaft though I'm a bit strong the the AWT.

Check out TXG talking about them. Their fav wedge this year. I respect these guys -- > https://www.youtube....h?v=n-0xO2fGWwQ

Got my S18's a couple of months ago, best wedges I've ever had.
Always been a Vokey man and I much prefer the Mizzy's, while I've never hit the Glide I can only say the S18's are brilliant.
