My goal for 2020 and beyond is to play one set without tinkering because the game has suffered from trying so many clubs over the last few years (by design and curiosity).

Yes, the set is basically new.  However, the putter pictures are from when I purchased the putter a year ago, and the VKTR has been used for a full season.  I had sellers remorse on the Glide 2.0 wedges so I bought them again.  They got dirty on the first day of winter (Saturday).  As desired and expected, The set proved pleasant for well struck shots and punishing for poorly struck shots.

Thanks for the well wishes and I know the feeling all too well.  I hope to replace the urge to play new equipment with the urge to play courses I have never played and want to play.  Thus, I will spend more time on researching golf courses.

Nice set up! Love the Blueprints!

How is it going from the forged irons to the glide 2.0 wedge?

Thanks for the reply and question.  I pulled the trigger on the Blueprints after following your review and my testing results.  Since the stealth finish makes the wedges seem smaller it does not appear odd at address.  In my previous experience outside  (sellers remorse) with the 2.0, I enjoyed the turf and sand interaction of the bounce & grinds.  I could hit bump n runs that released, and solid distance control when clipping the ball from fairway lies (no spinning off the green).  I seemed to control spin and trajectory better than with the forged glide during indoor testing.  I wish testing wedges outside was available.

That’s awesome. Glad you got something of worth out of my review.

 

I demo’d Glide 2.0 and the 2.0 Stealth’s... loved them too. Just seems strange to go to CB wedge. Haven’t had the opportunity to try the forged Glides.

 

Anyways, enjoy them. From the iBlade to the Putter a great combo set.

 

Edit: I do like the top end of the bag too.

I thought going to CB wedges was odd too, but this video with Louis Oosthuizen: at 17:40 he talks about the wedge comparisons and his wedge setup.  Not that my best day  would be close to his worst day on the links with the flu, but the noted differences in performance confirmed my thoughts. This video filled my golf fix when there was snow on the courses in Colorado this fall.

SkyCaddie SX 500 (unknown course or blind shot course); Leupold GX5i3 (go to for distances for play and practice sessions)

HeadGear leather headcovers (couldn't resist), and Pingman putter headcover.

I love the color scheme of your bag and headcovers. Also very sharp blacked out wedges and putter (mostly) contrasted with the sleek Blueprint irons. One hell of a bag. Good job. Not a fan of your woods for my personal tastes but if you hit them straight, that's all that matters. Have fun!

  • WFWP91 changed the title to 2020 WITB (WFWP91)

The inability to play for soooooooooooo long created too many opportunities to tinker; so, the one set for the year is a clear flop.

Current testing:

  • Long Game
    • Callaway Mavrik SZ 10.5* Driver with Roque White, and the Super Hybrids 17* and 20* with MRC Tensei Orange Pro
  • Scoring
    • Ping Glide Forged Wedges 50, 54 (bent to 55), 60 with KBS Tour shafts.
