Glide wedges are engineered from the hands down (grip to sole) to ensure short-game performance by increasing spin and consistency from any distance. The Dyla-wedge grip (longer for gripping down for trajectory control), CFS Wedge shaft (weight, flex and balance optimized) and head design (moisture-repelling 431 stainless steel, 3 sole options, added bounce, loft-optimized Gorge grooves) combine to deliver our most versatile and consistent wedge line to date.
While changes and advances in golf clubs come at varying degrees (particularly in wedges), it is always nice to hone in on some of the more “significant” examples from each release and break them down individually. For the PING Glide Wedges, the “Loft Optimized Grooves” as well as the use of a new “Dyla-Wedge” grip deserve a little more focus.
Loft Optimized Gorge Grooves:
With the Glide wedges PING has taken a different mindset when it comes to the application of their Gorge grooves that have become a staple in their lines of late. Essentially, they have realized that most golfers need more spin in the higher lofted wedges that will be used for touch shots, as compared to the lower lofted full-swing wedges where spin needs to be controlled for optimum flight and trajectory. In a more specific breakdown, the 47°-54° wedges have a larger groove radius and a 16° sidewall that place the spin in what PING considers to be a more optimal range for full swings, while also more effectively funneling away debris/grass. The 56°-60° wedges have a smaller groove radius with a steeper sidewall to produce as much short game spin as they can. Because only the 58° models were reviewed, spin comparisons into the lower lofted wedges cannot be made at this time, but the breakdown of the concept itself is certainly merited as a nice technological application into this release.
