Any buddies seen this new wedge selling? I've seen it at MST golf selling at $167 after discount. Im sure there are places that I can get it cheaper.

Tried it at the golf digest demo day. I liked it until I saw the price tag.

The versatile bounce seem good.
But black and red strips looks out dated

With due respect to all the TM fans here....

TM is not really well known to make Great Great Wedge.

IMHO, I think the Go To Wedge is still

Callaway.... due to Roger Cleveland

and

the well known SM 14 wedge....preferred by most Tour players

I have a lot of friends who have shifted to this

even golf reviews swear its FAST SPIN Rate

I saw a nice review on all the current wedge and saw a review of the TM ATV wedge.

Here it is....


TaylorMade ATV Wedge
Published: Monday, March 26, 2012 | 10:37:32 PM

PROS
PLAYABILITY: Testers can hit just about any shot from the sand with relative ease; blasts through even the heaviest rough with little or no trouble.
DISTANCE CONTROL: Very consistent from the sand and rough; full shots stop quickly and predictably, in part due to a slightly higher trajectory.
FEEL: Hefty weight makes the swing feel easy; good feedback on short shots and surprisingly soft sensation at impact.
LOOK: Large sole instills confidence when playing from sand or rough; sets up square when placed behind the ball.

CONS
Difficult for some testers to open the face for flop and other high-lofted shots; not the greatest from tight lies; odd look of wide sole is off-putting to a few guys.

Here are two of the Best Wedge in the market. I prefer both because they are our "Scoring Clubs"

Callaway Forged Wedge

KEY TECHNOLOGIES: A unique forging process allows for 21 tightly spaced grooves to improve spin and trajectory control. The “C-grind” sole design enables the face to be opened easily, for greater playability.

OUR TESTERS SAY: This club excels from the sand and looks sharp doing it.

PROS
PLAYABILITY: Testers can open the clubface without worrying about the heel sticking in the ground; it makes sand shots a breeze; good checking action on short shots.
DISTANCE CONTROL: Shots don’t spin excessively, making it easier to gauge yardage; dependable and true to the loft on solidly struck shots.
FEEL: Substantial feel and evenly balanced throughout the swing; good stability on full shots from the fairway or from tough lies.
LOOK: Unique finish is attractive; classic head shape with straight, sharp leading edge appeals to better players.

CONS
A few testers say flop shots are not as easy as they’d prefer; it’s minor, but some guys say the extra grooves detract from the overall visual package.

Lastly, the Number One wedge in the market based on the New USGA Groove rule

Titleist Vokey Design Spin Mill 4 Wedges

KEY TECHNOLOGIES: The SM4 (the “SM” stands for “Spin Milled”) has milled grooves for maximum allowable spin on full shots, while a milled, micro-edge face texture aids performance (creates spin) on partial swings. A special heattreatment process strengthens the metal in the clubface without affecting feel to increase groove durability and maintain maximum spin.

OUR TESTERS SAY: One of the top-rated models. Strong in all categories.

PROS
PLAYABILITY: Sharp leading edge effectively digs through rough, sand and all trouble lies; equally good from the fairway on full shots or around the greens.
DISTANCE CONTROL: One of the best wedges on full swings—repeatable results on solid strikes; predictable spin and trajectory on greenside shots.
FEEL: Soft and smooth through impact, easy to swing; slightly lighter weight is great for short shots around the green.
LOOK: Sets up square behind ball and instills confidence on all types of shots.

CONS
A few testers say it’s not appreciably better than the current Vokey wedges to warrant a change.
