Anyone manage to get their hands so far on these babies that are just hot off the press?

Mini grooves on top of the Zip grooves. The word is that the the laser milling is more consistent than the face milling on the Vokeys for more consistent spin across the face.

And before anyone makes any comment about groove conformity, only pros have to abide by the 2010 deadline, we buggers have till 2024. And yes, the pros will have conforming versions specially for them.

Didn't the dots used to denote the bounce? Do they stand for something else now, since the bounce numbers are already stamped on the sole (next to the dots?) Sorry, too much golf equipment stuff out there, and too lazy to go search/google...

The wedges look sweeet! I've been eyeing them the day they came out! Anywhere in SG that we could test out these babies?

The dots still denote the bounce, just that now they add the numbers to be more specific. One dot = low, 2 dots = standard, 3 dots = high. PanWest is the agent although shipment hasn't arrived yet. Dunno retail price yet.

I went back to my bag to double check if I was dreaming... and saw my CG12s... *sigh*

But I love my CG12s.

I have quite a few wedges... cause I believe that the more wedges I have, the better I will be at my short game.

CG12 - 46, 52, 54
CG14 - 60
Callaway X-Forged - 58, 60
Vokey SM - 54, 60 (still untouched) Smile

I can play better... I know I can, I know I can.

I'm really eager to see the CG15s. Every time I ask PW, they say that they don't know when they're coming.

Also, I think the CG15s are cast iron except that there seems to be a Japan-only-forged-version.

i think some of the folks might have seen this when one of the pros brought it in for loft and lie check some time back.

thats the same guy who keep swinging at 110mph with a 1.5 smash factor.

Birdman, you were there right?

but i seriously doubt if the etching has any effect on the spin. the same etching was also found on the new irons.

Yup DGman, everybody respectfull step aside and watch quietly in awe at a PGA player on the trackman.

Sadly I didn't see the wedge.

TS link to the wedge's review was interesting. Beautiful wedge that seemed to be very well liked for its construction and feel.

Itchy to get my hands on one to try it out too.
