The shape and forgiveness of the Ping iWedges provides the confidence and control to play delicate approach shots or blast shots from bunkers. The versatility and performance of the original Ping Eye 2 sand wedge inspired the design of the Ping iWedge. Borrowing the proven engineering advancements of the tour favorite—including the concave sole—the iWedge's Sand Cup design positions the pivot point further from the lead edge and features an aggressively tapered heel and toe. This combination gets the wedge under the ball quickly in the sand or from turf and prevents digging. The deep, multi-level cavity maximizes forgiveness and positions the center of gravity (CG) toward the center of the face and low for a solid feel. The U-shaped groove profile imparts optimal spin for control from all conditions. The clubface can be opened or closed with confidence to play any shot.

The Ping iWedge unique 'Sand Cup' sole really makes this a very easy club to hit. Based on the cult classic Eye 2 wedge that many Tour players still use, the updated iWedge has the same sole design and centre of gravity as the original, but thankfully the design of the rest of the head is a bit more contemporary. Out of the sand the 56 degree version felt like cheating compared to other wedges and there is enough weight in the sole to make extricating yourself from heavy rough a doddle. Even though the spec says the bounces are quite high, the design of the sole means that the leading edge lies flat to the ground wth just a minor forward movement of the hands. This makes it very good from tight lies as well. The feel from the face is great, although maybe not as crisp as a soft forged blade wedge. However this is more than balanced out by the performance of the club. If you struggle with your bunker shots then try out an Ping iWedge.
