  1. If anyone is in the area and wants to play let me know and i will get some tee times.
  2. Cracked my phone screen last week so i apologize for the gross misspellings. Didn't proof read.
  3. Te grind performed very well out of the few wet spots i could find. Much better than my other wedges. I think the sole design is great for that. You have to work to dig with it so i think it's a very good option for players who tend to get too steep for sure. Haven't tested them put of a bu ker yet but i'm going to try next week if i can get in a round.
  4. Review of the TSW wedges just posted if anyone wants to check it out in unofficial reviews.
  5. So i went ahead and pulled the trigger on the TSW wedges. Built 1* flat lie and 1* strong loft. Paired them with the Kinetixx 125 wedge shafts. 52* swingweight at D4 and the 60* at D6. Pics attached to compare to my current wedges. Why Maltby? Well, i replaced my old Titleist 710 cb irons with their TE forged irons and have absolutely loved them. Zero regrets whatsoever. Now it was time to replace wedges. I have been playing Cobra PUR wedges. Fantastic wedges, very soft, easy to manipulate, great spin control around greens. So i hit some Callaways, Ping, Mizuno etc. I just couldn't bring myself to pay what they were asking. In steps Maltby again price wise. Read reviews, looked at pictures etc but i couldn't find one to hit so i took a gamble in thinking their wedges were as good as their irons. The gamble paid off. They came off the fedex truck at 2pm, i was on the course by 3:30 today. Range was closed so just went to the chipping green. i've never owned graphite shafted irons, much less wedges so the first few swings were...different feeling. Plus i had midsize tour velvets put on just to see how i liked them. Verdict still out on the grips but back to the wedges. After hitting a few chips and getting a feel for the grips i stepped back to 30-40 yds to hit some soft pitch shots. Spin was fantastic! Kinetixx claims their shafts generate up to 1500 extra rpm, idk how true that is but the wedges definitely had some bite to them. They felt amazing, honestly. The heads felt soft, no weird clicky sounds, distance control was spot on and flighting them up or down was not an issue. I was initially worried about the sole width compared to my PURs. Behind the ball i couldn't tell at all. There is a slight noticeable offset compared to the cobras but not enough to turn me off. On to the course...had the course pretty much to myself so i took a half dozen Prov1s from 120 and 100 yds each to hit some full shots. Dispersion was as tight as what i was hitting with my cobras ,within 30' of pin from 120, 52*, within 20' with the 60* and flighting/shaping full shots were easier with these than with my cobras which was a very nice surprise. Drawing the 52* into the flag under the wind was very easy to do and i'm assuming that slight offset helped in that regard. Fading it into flags was easier to control than my cobras. Distance control was incredible though. All full shots from both wedges were all within 1 yard of each other distance wise. Given that this is the first time i've hit these i'm still finding it hard to believe so i'm just going to say my wedge game was just money today lol. The shafts specify they are for low/mid trajectory. I found this to be accurate but it wasn't a problem to hit high soft shots with either wedge. The shafts definitely are a new feeling to me. They felt great don't get me wrong but it was a very noticeable difference from playing steel shafts. They were very responsive, they felt great, i ordered stiff and they feel stiff, they look awesome i think and all in all i'm very happy with the setup and intend on adding the 56* as well in the near future. They perfromed very well from burnt out very tight fairway lies and from the rough. The sole width and turf interaction was noticeably different but not in a bad way. The sole is simply wider but i didn't feel uncomfortable or nervous at all opening the face on tight lies. The leading edge stays pretty close to the turf when the face is opened up. So if any of you are looking into getting new wedges and you don't want to break the bank, i would highly recommend you to consider Maltby. Quality, pricing, fast delivery and you can get them custom built to whatever spec you like. Total cost, plus shipping for BOTH wedges as per the specs i wanted was $191. Can't beat that for two brand new forged wedges.

  7. I hope you and your family are well man. Congratulations on the new baby. I have a friend that moved the ft worth area a few years ago, the storm that came through was horrendous!!! Best wishes to you and yours.
  8. How long jave i been playing? Roughly 28 years ( 33 yr old ). My dad started taking me when i was 4. Unofficial handicap +5 What do i love about golf? Everything! There's so much to it. The deeper one dives into golf the more they find the beauty of the game and it's parallels to ones life. What brings me to golfspy? Product reviews and the forum community on specific equipment. Where am i from? A tiny town called Wagarville in south Alabama. For anyone familiar with Mobile, it's about an hour north. My home course would be the Pines of Chatom but the course is pretty much a swamp so i try and play the courses in Mobile more often and the RTJ at Magnolia Grove is my favorite. Always in great shape. Best and worst about golf in my area? The best is being able to play year round minus a week of cold weather here and there or a hurricane. The worst part, for me, is having nicer courses to play nearby. Have to travel at least an hour to a nicer course. Also, the damn heat in the summer. When it gets summer here, golf gets fairly miserable no matter the course just because of the heat/humidity. What do i do for a living? I'm a supervisor at a stainless steel mill in the melt shop. I get to play with lava on a daily basis pretty much. May have had our metal in some of your iron heads possibly. How'd i come up with my username? Nickname that i can't remember exactly how i got stuck with.
  9. I think you guys have sold me on the TSW wedges.
  10. Are they softer or firmer feeling compared to the irons?
  11. I prefer a bladed profile and narrower sole normally. Looking at pics they look super wide but i guess it's maybe the way the bounce is designed instead? I know they're wider than the tour grind but not massively right?
  12. How's the shaft feel compared to steel?
  13. Brand new to the forum, tried the search function but couldn't find what i was looking for, my apologies. I was hoping to get some information on the Malty tour grind wedges. Currently gaming cobra PUR wedges, i have absolutely loveeed these wedges, but alas, it's time to replace them and ever since i replaced my iron set ( titleist 710 cb) with the maltby te forged i have been extremely curious about their wedges. The irons are money. I freaking love my irons! So now i'm highly considering the wedges, specifically the tour grinds because they seem to be the closest in profile to my current wedges. Also considering the Kinetixx wedge shafts. The only reviews i can find on them seem to be on the golfworks website though. Can't find any videos on youtube etc about their wedge shafts, specifically. So if any of you good folks have gamed, are gaming these, i would love to hear what you have to say. TSW wedges would be my 2nd choice of their wedges.
