What it does: A wedge’s grooves, bounce angle and sole grind don’t matter all that much if you’re not swinging it the most efficient way possible. Designer David Edel thinks he has unlocked a way to better match the weighting of a wedge to a player’s swing. Shifting the heaviest of the three weights in the back of the wedge to one of the three positions fine tunes the way you release the club on the downswing and leads to more consistent strikes.
Why we like it: Even without the theory, this is a sleek forged wedge with a nifty collection of four computer-milled sole grinds to precisely match your swing’s angle of attack into the ball. The extended grooves provide optimal spin across the face, too. If you can’t find a wedge for you, you’re not trying. There are options galore.
Specs 28 options (48-60 degrees); 4 sole grinds; 1 finish
“Responsive off the face but not jumpy. Easy to get through the turf. Nice spin on chips. The ball doesn’t run away from the hole.”
