Ping Tour-S Rustique Wedges

From Golf Magazine (May 2011)
Category: Wedges
We tested: 52°/12°, 56°/12°, 60°/10° with True Temper Dynamic Gold R-flex steel shaft; 52°/12°, 56°/12°, 60°/10° with FST KBS Tour S-flex steel shaft

Key Technologies: The machined steel face and grooves improve control and enhance shotmaking ability on full and partial shots. A clever backweight (aka "Custom Tuning Port") increases perimeter weighting and forgiveness.

OUR TESTERS SAY: One of the top-rated clubs; soft feel and plenty of versatility suit a variety of players.

PROS
PLAYABILITY: Easy to open the face and be creative around the greens; sole passes nicely through fairway turf, making it a pleasure to play partial shots.
DISTANCE CONTROL: Predictable on full and three-quarter shots from fairway; simple to judge yardages on touch shots.
FEEL: Soft sensation on solid strikes with plenty of response to the hands; head is strong through the ball with lots of "umph."
LOOK: Attractive finish and pleasing shape; one of the most appealing Ping wedges to date; white scoring line stands out initially and helps with alignment.

CONS
Off-center hits can be a bit jarring on full shots; visually, the notch along the heel and rear "badge" has its detractors.
