Spin and distance control are my strengths. Also find myself decent at getting out of deep rough. I'm good at accelerating and not accelerating through impact to add and subtract spin.

 

My weakness is getting out of middle to long range bunkers. Since my Taylormade Ef 52 degree wedge only has 8 bounce, it makes it difficult to hit these shots. Uphill shots also are difficult. I tend to get under these and leave them about 15ft short of the hole

Kbs c-taper, stiff

Billy

 

Duluth, MN

 

Strength- Sand play

 

Weakness- I struggle with consistent contact with my wedges inside 50 yards, inconsistent if it's anything but a full shot. My home course has small greens that are hard to hold so I'm looking for any short game advantage possible. 

 

50° SS Nippon Modus 3 130 S - BLACK DOT - DYLA-WEDGE WHITE

54° SS Nippon Modus 3 130 S - BLACK DOT - DYLA-WEDGE WHITE

58° ES Nippon Modus 3 130 S - BLACK DOT - DYLA-WEDGE WHITE

 

*I put the specs that would best fit my game. I would assume that custom shafts are not an option and I would gladly try the AWT 2.0 wedge shaft in all 3 wedges. PING does offer the Modus 105 with no up-charge but I wouldn't want my wedges that much lighter than my current irons. Also, I've been told Nippon makes some steel shafts for Ping (not sure if thats true though). I know, I just wrote a short novel...apologies! 

 

Great opportunity, thanks for the consideration!

(4) TESTERS WANTED

PING Glide 2.0 Wedges

 

 

Can PING's new wedges change your short game?

 

For most golfers, the search for a new short game begins and ends with Vokey, Cleveland or Callaway – the Holy Trinity of Wedges.

 

PING feels its new Glide 2.0 wedges should be part of that conversation, thanks to new sole grinds, improved groove technology and spin-preserving hydrophobicity (look it up). Add a host of no-upcharge shaft options and PING's legendary color-coded customization and you have a wedge the company feels belongs on the main stage.

Strength - Close range chip shots

Weakness - Consistency from 70 - 60 yards out

The PING Glide 2.0 specs that would best fit my game are the 52SS/56SS/60SS

 

Would appreciate the opportunity to test out the PING wedges as the many others would too.

Strength - I'm pretty consistent with the standard chip shot around the green, I'm good at picturing where the ball needs to land and judging its roll out on a consistent basis. Another strength is my distance control and accuracy  from 105 to 50 yards, I really have those distances dialed in and can usually put the ball within 10-15 feet and leave myself a make-able putt.  


 


Weakness - My biggest weakness is hitting good flop shots off tight lies. I think a lot of it has to do with not really trusting the shot but it has ruined some good rounds that I have had going over the past few months. I could really use some improvement on sand shots too. I don't have a problem getting out of the sand but I'm rarely within the 5-10 foot range out of the bunker. 


 


The PING Glide 2.0 specs:


50 SS, Blue, Project X PXI 6.0 (or something comparable), standard length, +2 wraps (I'm guessing that is the Orange color code?), Ping Dyla-Wedge Grips


54 ES, Blue, Project X PXI 6.0, standard length, Orange grip code, Ping Dyla-Wedge Grips


60 TS, Blue, Project X PXI 6.0, standard length, Orange grip code, Ping Dyla-Wedge Grips


 


I have always played Titleist and Callaway wedges, I would love the chance to test these out and give you some great feedback!

So many apps! Amazes me how many folks may not fully read the asks for testing though. Can't wait to see all the feedback. My Scor wedges are a bit used these days.... 😎 Good luck picking 4. I can't even imagine the "fun" process.

Brian

Yorktown Heights, NY

I am an above average bunker player, but for a scratch golfer I'm more like a 15 with wedge from 100.

Specs would be as follows:

All shafts Project X 6.0, +3/4 inch 2 degrees upright

Grips: Ping Dyla Wedge gold dot

52 degree SS Grind

56 degree WS Grind

60 degree TS Grind

 

Listen I'm a pretty good player. I still like playing in some tournaments and on any given day I can still compete. But not on consecutive days and more often than not it comes and goes in 6 - 9 hole stretches. And I make wayyyy too many bogeys or tough two putts for par with wedges in my hand on the approach. I'm willing to look at anything that can help.

      Driver: Thank you MGS, flat out the best driver I have ever had in the bag.
      3W: A random purchase after being unable to hit the original epic 3w. Put same shaft that I was fit for in the epic and it has been a match made in heaven. Absolute money from the tee and I know exactly what it will do from the fairway. Combined with the driver there are not many par 5's that I can't reach. 
      5W: Solid club but this spot has always been a trouble spot in my bag and that hasn't changed in 20 years. 
      Irons: Love the combo and they feel absolutely amazing. All of them are 1* strong, standard lie and +1/2" Biggest thing I was looking for in making the change was more control. They definitely fly different than P790's but hopefully after an adjustment period they will meet or exceed my expectations. 
      Wedges: A different look from what I am used to but feel is amazing. The shaft on full swings is so easy for me to deliver correctly. 
      Putter: Not a fast revolving door but one that moves some. Have gotten used to the look of the center shaft but still struggling with alignment some. 
      Ball: Titleist PROV1X #23 imprinted with THEZIPR in blue. Have played this ball since its birth and while I have tried many other options nothing has been able to kick it out. 
      Rangefinder: Bushnell PRO X2 
      Glove: Footjoy Weathersof. Love the Ping tour glove but at the rate I go through gloves I just can't justify the price difference.
      Shoes: Ecco Biom G 3 BOA and Biom Hybrid 3 BOA. Most comfortable shoes I have ever worn.

      When it comes to PING many things come to mind, quality, engineering, performance and irons are among the first things most people will think of.   And with the release earlier this year of the G410 irons, PING has hit on each one of those characteristics. 
      Following the huge success of the G400 irons, PING has hit a home run with the striking black and red colors of this iron, as well as a being a bit more streamlined in all the right places.   PING has achieved the rare feat of providing an iron that has a profile appealing to even the most discerning of golfers, but yet still offering the forgiveness and help that higher handicaps look for. 

      We are looking for three forum members to join staff member Golfspy_Stroker in testing, reviewing and keeping a set of these G410's built to their custom specs.  Testing will require a nearly two month commitment of putting the irons in play on the course, at the range and providing ongoing commentary in the forum thorough out the process. 
      As an extra bonus to the irons, the selected testers will have the option to choose Golf Pride Tour Velvet grips equipped with Arccos.  The clubs will come with a 99 day free trial to arccos.  After that the tester would be responsible for paying for the subscription in order to continue it.   It will be a great way to add data to your review. 
      PING has opened this testing to all golfers regardless of country of residence.   All you have to do to be eligible for the testing is follow the below instructions.
       
      In a post in this thread please provide the following information...AND DO NOT QUOTE this post when replying!
      First Name/State or Country of residence
      Handicap
      Current irons in Play
      The carry distance of the your 7 iron
      That's it.   Good luck to everybody
      We'll be selecting the testers within the next 10 to 14 days, so check back to see if you've been selected!

      Shankster and PING Blueprint Irons---A Match Made in Heaven? 
      Every so often we do a special review of a club on MGS.   Usually it's when the OEM provides us with one set or one driver etc for review, it's not practical to open it up to over 500 to 1,000 applications and pick just one person.
      So when the Blueprint review was generously offered by PING with the stipulation it went to a member who was a true low single digit handicap, we discussed as a group who would be an ideal member to reach out to test these beauties. Honestly at least half a dozen names came to mind, but some of them were already involved in a testing or had just completed one.  
      Then one name really jumped out at us,  Shankster.   Not just because he fit the handicap requirement, but if there is any one person on this site who is a more of a traditionalist and prefers the minimalist design in a club than Alan, we don't know who it is.  
      When we reached out to Shankster, it took him about 1 minute to say yes, and that's only because he was recovering from the shock of being asked and making sure he wasn't being punked!     We had to work through the timing of his move from Michigan to Maryland, but all that got sorted out.
      Not knowing exactly when today he'll get his post up, I'll leave you with a few of these.
