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…

Longest hybrid of 2021? – GolfWRXers discuss

Published

on

In our forums, our members have been taking a deep dive into the latest hybrids. WRXer ‘Russian7’ kicks off the discussion saying

“Anyone compare or hit G425, SIM, RadSpeed or Tsi to compare? I am dying to find something that can replace my Jetspeed 3 hybrid, but after all these years, there is nothing as long as it that I’ve found, but I would really like something new that looks a lot better but performs the same as my jet speed. I was looking at the G425 possibly..”

And our members have been sharing their thoughts in our forums.

Here are a few posts from the thread, but make sure to check out the entire discussion and have your say at the link below.

  • Jwin323: “Callaway Super hybrid.”
  • JoeFrigo: “Like mentioned above, if you’re looking for flat out distance, nothing will beat the Callaway super hybrid, and it’s not close. But for 2021 release I’m seeing some impressive numbers with the PXG Proto hybrid. Sim2 Rescue is a close 2nd. Ultimately PXG was surprisingly very forgiving for the profile, and it’s honestly my favorite club to hit at the moment.”
  • Drivingrangehero: “Tour Edge Exotics C721. They picked up where Adams left off, in my opinion.”
  • Hollywoodtlb: “Got fit into the G425 17 degree with tour shaft x-stiff and was hitting bombs with it. Never hit any 3 wood or hybrid straighter. Obviously when I get it, I’ll go back to hitting awful, but I’m very excited to get it. Gets off the ground very easily.”
