GolfWRX Spotted: Ping Glide Forged Pro wedges (exclusive in-hand pictures)

Published

on

This week, GolfWRX is on-site at the Wells Fargo Championship getting all of the inside equipment scoops from the tour vans, and early Tuesday morning, we got in-hand pictures of the highly anticipated new Ping i59 irons along with new Glide Forged Pro Wedges.

We initially spotted these Ping wedges a couple of weeks ago from a distance in the bag of Bubba Watson, and now, thanks to in-hand pictures (including some comparison shots) we can take a closer look.

Although we don’t have any of the technical details behind the new Ping design, what we can tell is the upper part of the blade is much thicker than the previous Ping Glide Forged wedges to the point where the top line has been beveled. This has been a very popular element of a lot of wedges from multiple OEMs, in an effort to shift the center of gravity higher on the face to lower launch and increase spin.

Ping wedges are well known for their spin performance, especially with the hydrophobic finish to repel water and increase friction. If the engineers at Ping can improve on the already great performance of their wedges, then they have a home run on their hands.

    I’ve bought and used a lot of Ping wedges over the years but I just don’t like the shape of their newer offerings. The Glide 3.0 54* is so dang round and these look to be about the same. I’m planning to try the eye2 version and as ugly as they are, they fit my eye so much better than the Glide 3.0 do.

    These look good. Let’s just hope they won’t be $200+ like their last forged wedges…

“Our goals are ambitious to eliminate all virgin polyester from our line, but this offering shows just how close we are to getting there. We pushed ourselves in new ways with design and materials development to bring this apparel to life. We know golfers around the world will appreciate the performance features, but they will also feel good about buying a product that in a small way saves our oceans from plastic waste.” – Shaun Madigan, director of global apparel, Adidas Golf.
