Review: Ping Tour-S Rustique Wedges
The new Tour-s Wedge have a new tuning port in the cavity which is very similar to the S56 irons. (see Review here). This tuning port Ping uses to create a cast club with excellent feel. They also redistribute the weight to the perimeter for some forgiveness in a wedge. The design, feel and over all play made me forget that these have conforming grooves.
I ordered a 52* 56* and 60* with KBS shafts to match the S56 irons. They all have similar grinds which are on the moderate side. I believe you can get more aggressive grind from the Ping WRX department. They all have a great shape, and aggressive, yet conforming grooves. I was also please with how they dug just a little but no huge divots.
The 52* gap wedge served me well. I was able to use it most on full shots, but from time to time to keep trajectory down on chips. While the grind isn’t overly aggressive, I still found it to be fairly versatile. I found this to be my 110 club every time I needed it.
The 56* is primarly my sand wedge. This club too didn’t have any fancy grind, but it just worked. It was able to escape the sand easily and typically with good spin. I had many sand saves with this wedge. I did use it too from the fairway at 100 yards. I had very good trajectory and distance control with this wedge.
The 60* does everything else. I use it on full shots at 90 yards and everything inside of that. I was really happy with this wedge even though the grind was similar to the other 2 wedges. I could still open it up and hit the flop. The leading edge was sharp enough to cut through the rough to extricate a ball, but didn’t dig too much on tight lies.
I was really impressed with the amount of spin that all three wedges offered. I have sets of both non-conforming and conforming grooves. While there is some difference I didn’t notice it much with these. They are sharp and spin the ball nicely. While I didn’t have many spin back, I wasn’t dealing with much roll out either. I just always felt in control of the spin.
Rust is a good thing on these Ping Tour-S wedges. They look great, offer a non-glare finish and spin the ball very nicely. For cast wedges they even felt pretty good.
