PostSubject: Best 3 Wedges thus far.....   Sun Aug 04, 2013 4:09 pm

Thus far in 2013, these have been the top 3 wedges for me......

1) BFG wedge

2) Callaway Mack Daddy 2 wedge

3) Ping Gorge wedge



Callaway MD2 

 





BFG wedge












No pics for the Ping Gorge wedge though....

Anyway, comparing side by side, all 3 wedges check up a hell lot! 

Feel wise, I would say BFG wedge came in softest, with the Ping wedge a close 2nd (surprisingly for a cast wedge) and then the Cally MD 2.

Depending on your budget and preference for brand, I dare say any of these 3 wedges would be the must-get wedge of this year!



lol!

1. BFG
2. Cleveland CG-F1
3. Fourteen MT28 v4

Would you lose the feel if you use a 3 or 4piece ball with soft feel plus the soft feel of some wedges? Soft+soft=?

I'm sure the pros would but at my level, I could be hitting rocks and wouldn't know the difference.

MD is definitely good look and feel.

BFG wedges, it's great too and furthermore the up charge for shaft like Hi rev and DG spinner is not high, compare to the rest of the brands.

How were they better for you bro? Less miss hit? More spin? Better distance control? Bunker performance?

For me: vokeys TVD. I just dont duff as much with these. maybe the med bounce and the grind suits me well. just easy to slide off tight lies or downhill lies. I do get hot balls if I catch it thin but for most part, distance is reliable with kbs tour. Feel is soft, solid. Not buttery but still good. Moreover, the face is sturdier than other vokeys I've tried. Usually they scratch easy.

Second is fourteen v5. My favorite grind. Really versatile. Tight lie, fluffy lie, bunkers, flops. Just works well. Cons: Spins noticeably less and the feel quite clicky. Heavier head, I feel.

Bro,  I get better feel from Mizuno which gives me better distance control.
Am convinced is a better wedge for me.

Vinny, you bent your 52/54 to get a 53?

Yup, bent the 54 to a 53 ~ seems to do the job for me anywhere from 90m inwards (chips, pitches & full swing approaches)

@ Hara ~ yes, somehow there's just stuff in the bag that we stick to for the longest time......  went one full circle from Fourteens to Miuras then Bridgestone & back to the good old faithfull Fourteen (renowned for turning "any rocks to soft boil eggs", going in aggressive enough spin + check is a guarantee). These heads are unbeatable when paired with DG Spinner shafts.  

Also thanks to BabyCroc for passing me his Spinner shaft

Ken, they could put the nike logo on a plastic spade and you'd buy it Smile

But, that said, I just picked up a new Nike bag... love it Smile
