So, even the Glide 2.0 cannot extricate this. attachicon.gifIMG_4110.JPG

Best part was, it was in the face, and about thigh high. Quite the stance & swing issue.

Great reviews on these wedges, I definitely need to give these a try....my SW needs replacing that sounds like a good place to start.

It seemed to wear quicker than what I was used to from the start, but I'm used to either tour chrome or raw wedges.

 

Once I got past that initial phase where every little nick showed, I think they have held up pretty well!

The finish and grooves so far are in pretty good shape.  I do clean my clubs quite often though.  I'll snap some pics tonight and post them out there for you.  One thing I did notice in comparing these to my old gamer Callaway Mack Daddy 2 Tour is that they don't get as many "nicks" or 'dings' as the Callys.  The Callys are forged (and therefore softer) and these are not... they are a "hard" club...I must say, I'm still getting good spin out of them... stuck one to 6 feet with my 54 last night to win the closest-to-the-pin in my weekly league.   :D

Wow. You guys are soooooo darn lucky. I love the review but have to say.... I bet mygolfspy loves the long thorough review but many times it comes off as rambling. We want a little more short and sweet. Pics and videos are nice because we can garner more insight but just imagine if the hot list was 1000 pages to cover 50 clubs. No one would read it. Pros, cons, facts and opinions. again I'm not poking fun. Just my two cents.

I respectfully disagree. If I wanted a bunch of marketing/fluff bullet points I'd read golf digest as you mentioned

 

The great thing about MGS forum reviews is how thorough and detailed they are

These things are a big blob.. no huge on my radar right now. 49.5°, 52.5°, 55.5°, 59.5°, 62° as I've said in another thread. The finish is what caught my eye when they can out with the Glide 1.0... the cast helps too. I play in sandy conditions a lot, the cast clubs will hold up better as you mentioned.

 

Any of the Navy dudes see the 55.5? We all know what chapter that is. Fire, fire, fire!! Those things are ...

They certainly aren't the "prettiest girl on the block" ... If I were to base them just on looks they'd probably be 3rd behind the cally MD3 and Cleveland RTX but man do they spin the ball.  Really great coming out bunkers and near the green.

I like the no frills of the Glide 2.0, I'm not a fan of a bunch of crap all over my clubs. Maybe a cool stamp like "Shankster" but other than that give me plane Jain sticks. The Glides are the cleanest looking out of them all.

After round/pre-cleaning pics... 2 or 3 rounds on these without a cleaning

 

You'll notice the grooves are still sharp and there are some scuffs (as would be expected) on the soles.

No dings/nicks/cuts... although; I don't hit from rocks, branch roots or anything hard enough to damage them.  I'll gladly take a penalty stroke.   :D

most of the scuffing is surface and usually a wipe down with a wet cloth is enough to get them lookin good again.

 

Can't believe I'm doing this... I always clean my clubs and to submit photos of dirty clubs is.... sacrilegious...

Off to clean these babies up now.

Rick and Pete could've used the super-duper spin on the Glide wedges for this challenge!  Especially RICK!

Not surprised to see the Glide 2.0 at the top of the "Best Wedges of 2017" list in the full shot category.... these are top notch!

 

I'll have a stage 3 soon now that the season is coming to an end.

I love the reviews on here for these.  I just recently purchased these wedges in a 56* and 60* both WS grind.  After going through a wedge fitting, I found out that I needed a high bounce club since I'm a digger.  The first choice everyone wanted me to try was Vokey.  I tried the K and F grinds.  The K grind was amazing out of bunkers.  I would compare it to hitting a 7 wood, just like cheating.  I've had a F grind before and I loved that club.  Then after trying different wedges out there and looking for a high bounce, I found Ping.  I was lucky enough to take the Vokey and Ping out on the course for a head to head.  The Vokey definitely had a softer feel off the club face.  The  true deciding factor for me was looking at turf interaction.  I went behind the hole of one of the greens and buried the ball in the worst lie possible.  I wanted to know that if this would ever happen, because we all get bad lies, that I would have the confidence with the club to get it out.  As bad as the lie was, the Ping went through it as if it was a perfect lie.  The Vokey I struggled to get through the grass.   I repeated the test at least 10 times for each club with the same results.

I have also found that to be true.  The Glide 2.0's definitely "glide" through the rough.  I have experienced very little twisting or "hosel grab", and I hit the ball into all KINDS of gnarly spots!

I just posted an admittedly short Stage 3 of my wedge review.  I'm playing Monday, maybe a range session over the weekend.  Would like to add some additional photos...

Just finishing my Ping swing. How are you guys feeling about these wedges heading into 2018? Most notably, I'd like to know how they're holding up durability wise.

 

Looks like we're still owed a few Stage reviews but I'm guessing these will be in the bag for at least 3/4 of the testers this year.

I'm unfortunately on the DL currently, (broken heel) but mine still look practically new.  I'll post some photos this weekend.  I can assure you mine won't be coming out of the bag this upcoming season.  I was just getting to the point where I really understood how I could manipulate them to hit the shot I wanted.  I'm a bit of a slow learner anyway, LOLZ.  Takes me some time to get comfortably adjusted to new clubs, especially wedges.
