Ping launches Glide Forged wedge family
Ping’s new Glide Forged range of wedges is designed for players that look for a soft-feeling, sleek-looking, high-spinning blade-style design in their scoring clubs.
Working closely with a group of Ping tour pros, including Louis Oosthuizen, Stan Utley and Todd Anderson, Ping’s engineers designed the Glide Forged wedges to provide the feel and versatility required to play an array of approach and finesse shots around the green.
A sole design with a rounded lead edge and more heel-toe camber allows for greater shot-making and creativity around the green. The gooseneck-tapered hosel ensures a smooth transition through grass and sand while providing a captured look at address.
Precision-milled grooves, first seen in the Glide 2.0 wedges, features a sharper edge radius, which increases interaction with the ball at impact, creating more friction for improved spin and trajectory control.
“Everything about the Glide Forged wedge is created around quality and performance,” said Ping President John K Solheim,. “From the 8620 carbon steel that produces the incredible feel to the tungsten toe weight that ensures forgiveness in a blade-style wedge, we made sure every detail was covered, including milling the back of the wedge to create a distinct, visually appealing pattern. Several of our tour professionals have already added Glide Forged wedges to their bags since debuting them last month. They really love the feel and are especially excited about the added spin and trajectory control they are experiencing.”
Available for custom and pre-orders, they come in 50⁰, 52⁰, 54⁰, 56⁰, 58⁰, 60⁰lofts, with True Temper Dynamic Gold S300 steel shafts, and Alta CB graphite shafts as standard.
RRP: £200/£210 (st/gr)
