PING Glide Wedge 2016
PING Glide Wedge
Glide wedges are engineered from the hands down (grip to sole) to ensure short-game performance by increasing spin and consistency from any distance. The Dyla-wedge grip (longer for gripping down for trajectory control), CFS Wedge shaft (weight, flex and balance optimized) and head design (moisture-repelling 431 stainless steel, four sole options, added bounce, loft-optimized Gorge grooves) combine to deliver our most versatile and consistent wedge line to date.
In a first-ever approach, PING custom-engineered the Glide wedges from the hands down (grip to sole) with a wedge-exclusive grip, shaft and heads for maximizing spin and control to improve short-game performance. Available in four versatile sole designs with added bounce and loft-optimized Gorge grooves, the Glide wedges are PING's most versatile and consistent wedge line ever.
The proprietary Dyla-wedge grip is 3/4 of an inch longer to facilitate gripping down to produce a lower trajectory. Grip-down markings at 1 3/8-inch intervals guide hand placement, and a softer tapering profile improves feel when utilizing the lower grip-down markings. The 118g CFS Wedge shaft is optimized in weight, flex and balance to promote a lower launch angle with enhanced control, feel and stability.
Loft-optimized Gorge grooves feature varied radius and sidewall angles to ensure tighter spin for consistent, reliable results. A 16" sidewall in lofts 47 through 54 maximizes groove volume to enhance performance on full shots. A 24" sidewall and tighter radius in lofts 56 through 60 help compress and "grab" the ball to optimize spin on short pitches and chips.
Heads are available in standard sole (SS), thin sole (TS), wide sole (WS) and Eye sole (ES), enabling you to be fit according to your attack angle and most-common turf conditions. SS fits moderate attack angles and divots; TS is suited for a shallow attack angle and shallow divots; the WS is best for steep angles of attack and deep divots, and the ES offers versatility from all conditions, especially bunkers. When properly fit, you will feel the sensation of the club gliding through the sand or turf.
Chrome plating gives the 431 stainless steel heads a moisture-repelling finish, which creates more friction for improved spin and consistency in wet conditions and lies in the rough. 431 SS also helps soften the feel.
Engineered Grip to Sole
Three new wedge-specific components -- the Dyla-wedge grip, CFS Wedge shaft, and versatile head designs -- represent a unique approach for maximizing spin and consistency to improve short-game performance from any distance.
Fitting By Sole
Four versatile sole options -- standard sole (SS), wide sole (WS), thin sole (TS), and Eye sole (ES) -- allow you to be fit for your attack angle and most common turf conditions.
In the ES models, the smaller hosel leading into the face decreases the cross section for less drag through the sand.
Eye2-style Scooped Sole
The Eye2-style scooped sole in the ES models offers versatility on full and partial shots from all conditions, especially bunkers.
Loft-Optimized Gorge Grooves
In lofts 47° through 54°, grooves have a 16° sidewall to maximize groove volume for enhanced performance on full shots.
Loft-Optimized Gorge Grooves
In the 56° through 60° lofts, a 24° sidewall and tighter radius increases spin on short approaches and chip shots for added precision around the green.
This proprietary grip is 3/4 of an inch longer to encourage gripping down to achieve a lower trajectory and "dial in" tighter control on touch shots. Grip-down markings at 1 3/8-inch intervals guide hand placement, and a softer tapering profile improves feel when utilizing the lower grip-down markings.

PING 5L Cord
The 5L cord grip features a firmer texture in the upper portion to help control direction and a softer texture in the lower portion for enhanced feel. Cord construction provides an extra-secure grip in all conditions. It is available in two versions - round for clubs with PING's Trajectory Tuning+ Technology, and ribbed for the hybrids and irons.
