PING recently rolled out their latest line of wedges with the new Glide 3.0 series. The Glide 3.0 wedges started with a blank page and the PING research and development team looked to design every element of the new wedge line from the ground up. The result is a wedge that provides more forgiveness, higher spin rates and an overall softer feel.
The Glide 3.0 is the best of both worlds as it draws on the look of a players wedge whilst delivering game-improvement performance and feel. The four grind options caters for common turf conditions and can be suited to your specific angle of attack.
PING’s new cavity back design combined with a Custom Tuning Port insert creates a uniquely soft but solid feel at impact. With an increased MOI the result is a wedge that produces a lower launching, higher spinning ball flight delivering exceptional control.
PING’s new technology of wheel-cut grooves creates incredibly sharp edges to each groove providing increased levels of spin and control. This is especially apparent with the 54, 56, 58 and 60 degree options which have an extra ½ groove at the bottom of the face to maximize spin potential at impact.
One of the stand out attributes of the Glide 3.0 is the way PING have successfully managed to combined the look of a players style wedge with that of a game improvement one. With a sharp top line the appearance is striking yet reassuring at address.
