Hi guys,

How do we choose a wedge....

Mainly we will be looking at brands, materials, loft n bounce...

When it comes to Face Progression, wat is the diffrenence between a 2mm FP n a 7mm FP?

Cant seem to search any thread on this topic.

Anyone care to share. TIA...

I know very little on this, but I think its similar to offset ... the higher the FP , the lower the offset ...

for me by looks, feel and sole design.

Looks: straight leading edge, not round. No rusty finish either.
Feel: soft, deep pitched noise, swooosh! solid feeling with little hash vibrations. prefier heavier wedges
Sole: anything that's easy to slide under a ball on a tight lie is good. must test on course for this. Not too much bounce either, 8-10 enough.
Spin: most wedges check enough for me..not much difference

heck i cleared my wedge excesses last year and now accumulating again. bfg and tvd coming soon. still love my fourteens v5 and bridgestone tho'

FP what? Laughing

Thx for the input guys...

Yup, as mentioned by tourwing, its something like offset. Or put it this way, offset is negative Face Progression...

@pushslice,

U mentioned the looks of straight leading edge, so I suppose its zero offset n zero Face Progression...

So how does this FP helps in individual... As in wats the result, fade, draw, on impact, etc....

oh as in offset, do wedges have offset? thot they have very little...negligible

for me sole design plays a lot bigger role in a wedge shot. does it help me duff less or not? Very hard to hook/slice a wedge shot. Most misses are duff, top or shank.

Sorry bro, I think I've confused the topic a little...

As most iron set comes with a pitching wedge, and the pitching wedge does have offset depending on the iron set itself...

I've edited the title to wegde from 52 deg n more...
