Hi guys,

Thinking of getting a new set of wedges but so far I've only been playing with the vokeys.

Managed to hit the new Callaway X-Series Jaws... not bad!

Reviews on other wedges anyone???

Try the TaylorMade XFT Wedges, very good value for money at $109 from Golf Direct.

Here's the link to the review of all the wedges:

http://www.golfdigest.com/golf-equipment/hot-list/2011-02/hot-list-wedges

And the TaylorMade XFT review reproduced from Golf Digest.

TAYLORMADE XFT
LOFTS: 10 loft and bounce options (50 to 64 degrees)
TECH TALK: The precision-milled face insert can be replaced as it wears down. TaylorMade estimates that grooves begin to lose their effectiveness after about 1,000 strikes, and grooves that are worn lead to inconsistent launch angles and less spin.

PLAYER COMMENTS:
L: "The distance control is very good. It's not a digger or floater; the bounce is just right." ... "The interchangeable insert is not tingy. It's soft-sounding."
M: "The sole grind and turf interaction are practically flawless. You can hit it high or low, and that's rare. Chipping is a breeze from the rough and from tight lies."

HOT: Interchangeable face inserts are one solution to the new groove rule. That's because pre-2010 face inserts can be used for at least another decade by average golfers. In other words, this is the only wedge that can accommodate U-like and V-like grooves.
NOT: A greater list of options is overdue for a leader in innovation.

you have to try the honma tour w wedges. Some at greenfield @ far east now, very good feel. And for honma wedges, damn good price because they are the last generation model. i think selling for $120 only. Cheaper than Vokey FOR HONMA ok!

alvin, do you care about the grooves a not?

for new grooves, the XFT is super solid! and at $109, it's a steal.

for old grooves, I still recommend CG14 for light head (long time vokey users might not like it) and Cally X-Forged Mack Daddy (bit harsh with stock shaft) or Nike VR for heavy head.

I tried Rex' CC X-Jaws, his used up Vokey black ni felt a lot better.

I heard many good feedback on the TM XFT... I was holding back because of the 'patch' on the face... but maybe I should give it a try...

Thx bro for the suggestions! Very Happy
