Edel SMS Wedges – Official MGS Forum Review by GrumpyGolf
Intro - May 29, 2022
First off, I am grateful to have been selected for this set of testing. I am picking up the game again after an eighteen-and-a-half-year hiatus due to family, work, and general unexpected (or maybe should have expected) life happenings. With most of that behind us, my wife decided it was time for me to get back out on the course (and maybe give her some time away from me ).
During fitting I was fitted with the following specs:
- 50°, 54°, and 58°
- C-Grind with 2g/8g/10g weight dispersion
- KBS Tour Wedge - S +1"
- Tour Velvet - Std
As for this test, I plan on testing out the wedges in three different manners – in the simulator (to get the spins, trajectories, etc.…), on the range (distances and shot groupings), and the chipping/putting green (feel and short shots with stopping power). I will be using my current wedges as a baseline only but considering the loft differences I really am going to rely on my own experiences with the Edel wedges.
I said before that I was excited to get a chance to test wedges in my first go round on MGS, I mean that because my wedge game was the best part of my game before. I practiced flop shot more than anything else just because I thought they looked cool (reality is if I needed a flop shot one in a round, I was lucky). But wedge shots in general were good for me as I was usually 20-30 yds off the green back then.
