Having a rough time in the wet weather with some fat shots right now and would love something with some better turf interaction, hopefully the GLIDE lives up to it's name! I am pretty good around the green chipping with my 54, solid out of the bunker with my 58

I'd like 50, 54, 58, black dot, midsize NDMC, probably S300? Curious what shaft would be best, playing s55's now with ZZ65 and i like em but not sure if they would work with the wedges

Strengths: Ball flight control, distance control

Weakness: Spin control on green side pitches

 

As a guy who has been a "traditionalist" with equipment, I've always stuck with something until it truly got worn out.  And anyone who sees my bag knows I am not one to just fill it with the same brand, I really test things to find what I like.  These new Ping wedges have really piqued my interest because of the new groove concept and the sole grinds look awesome.  I would be thrilled to give these things a real "test drive" as play multiple different courses every year and a few tourneys.  I'm extremely detail oriented on all my clubs and the opportunity to dial in all the specs on these wedges would really allow me to provide top notch feedback.  I would take very tedious notes, photos, and even some videos of the performance of these wedges.  I would take them to all different lies, turf conditions, and shot flight options.  I'm the exact kind of tester you guys are looking for.

 

Ping Wedge Preferred Specs

50*, SS, 1* flat, DG S-300, Ping Cord Grip +1 wrap on bottom hand, D4 SW, std length

54*, SS, 1* flat, DG S-300, Ping Cord Grip +1 wrap on bottom hand, D4 SW, std length

58*, TS, 1* flat, DG S-300, Ping Cord Grip +1 wrap on bottom hand, D4 SW, std length

 

Thanks so much for considering me for this guys, as a new member this is a pretty sweet offering.  I'm looking forward to everything this site has to offer.

 

Cheers

- Burk

Been trying to find a place to hit these other than an indoor mat Would like to get back to Ping Wedges. Wore out my old MB's and try to go Vokey,  Never been able to find consistent feel and distance control.  Added Ping tour gorge 58 and it has been wonderful. No handicap but average score 82-84. Strength bunker and 90 - 100 yards, Weak inconsistent 75-80 yards Obviously need new.
