Edel believes it's Swing-Match-System wedges offer golfers a first-of-it's-kind opportunity to play a wedge fit based on the unique attributes of YOUR swing. Moreover, Edel believes every golfer fits into one of three swing types: cover, side-on or under. Put another way: steep, neutral or shallow.

Citing internal testing, Edel found that 80 percent of tested golfers saw the best spin numbers with the heaviest weight NOT in the center location.

Now we need testers like you to assess and report back to us at MyGolfSpy!

Other information:

We're looking for 4 (four) testers to put these wedges up against your gamers. International members are welcome to apply, but this test is RH (right-hand) only!  It is preferred that testers have access to a launch monitor or shot tracking to compare to previous wedges.  Each tester will be provided a set of three wedges for testing.

New to the forum? Want to increase your chances of being selected for testing? Here is a link to a guide which lays it all out for you and will allow you to know exactly how, why and who we select for testing: HOW TO BECOME A TESTER

 

Congratulations to our Testers!

Edel SMS Wedges – Official MGS Forum Review by GrumpyGolf

Intro  - May 29, 2022

For a full introduction in the comments section click here

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.

Intro

Hello MGS, my name is Kevin. I've only really gotten into golf in the last 3 years or so, but have worked my way down to a 5 handicap. I play 30 rounds a year and practice several times a week. I am a bit of an equipment and instruction junkie. My biggest weakness right now is inside 100 yards. My slightly OTT move leads to some thin strikes and partial shots have been a score killer for me. Around the greens my wedge game is functional but rarely great. I'm hoping a properly fit set of Edel SMS wedges can fine tune by game, provide some more consistency and ultimately give me more confidence. That's going to be a recipe for lower scores. 

 

Results of my fitting at Club Champion:

50: C Grind, 54: V Grind, 58: T Grind. Weights at 6h, 10c, 8t.

A big thank you to Edel and MyGolfSpy for another outstanding testing opportunity.

My name is Cody and, if you ask my wife, I am obsessed with golf. I practice or play almost every day when the weather permits. Living in West Michigan is a golfer’s dream with many beautiful courses and practice facilities. My handicap hovers in the upper-mid single digits with my distance being the strength of my game. My length means I hit a number of full and partial wedges throughout my rounds.

I will be testing the Edel SMS wedges with the following specifications, per my fitting at Club Champion:

  • 50 degrees, 54 degrees, 58 degrees
  • Standard Loft/Length/Lie
  • V Grind
  • Weight in Toe
  • Nippon Modus3 Wedge 125

I have access to a short game area, a practice range and my indoor garage bay equipped with a FlightScope Mevo+ launch monitor and Titleist RCT golf balls. My plan is to put the Edels through their paces on course, on the practice area and in my garage bay. Specifically, a few areas I am most concerned about are turf interaction, ball flight/shape and wet weather performance. 

I can’t wait to get these into my hands and get testing underway!

Edel SMS Wedges – Official MGS Forum Review by xOldBenKenobiX

Introduction – May 31, 2022

First and foremost a huge thank you to Edel and MyGolfSpy for another awesome testing opportunity.

 

20210614_201732.jpg.218adae916f5e31ed4fc72e26ed20b0b.jpg

 

My name is Elson, and I am golf addict, I have been playing golf for about 12 years now, born and raised in Brazil, I honestly don’t play and practice as much as I would like to. I have been calling Southeast Michigan home for the past 15 years, and really enjoy the many courses that our area and the Northwest Ohio area have to offer. My wife has accepted that she loses me for a few months during the summer. I am a high handicapper, and my numbers will vary from the high teens to the mid-20s depending on how often I can play.

I will be testing the Edel SMS wedges, my specs are as it follows:

Ø  48, 54 and 60 degrees

Ø  Standard Loft/Lie + ¼ inch length

Ø  T Grind

Ø  Standard 2g weights on the edges and 8g on the center

Ø  Shafted with a KBS Hi-Rev 2.0 - R 115g with a standard size Golf Pride Tour Velvet grip

Currently I do not have a suitable testing area at home for wedge practice and testing, nor I own a Sim/Shot tracer equipment, however I do have a few golf courses nearby with good range/short game are to practice at. Also, there is a new X Golf location down the street from me to where I can go and test with a full Sim and test spin rates.

Overall, I want to test these wedges with my regular game, and see how they perform, or how can I make them perform.

The main measure of testing here is if they can help me save strokes, more greens in regulation and such. As any new clubs I expect these to be different than what I am used to play with and to see some good differences with the spin rates and shot shapes. Edel is one of the companies to which I have never held one of their clubs before, just saw pictures and videos and I think it will be awesome to play with it.

I am very excited for this testing as my wedges are the oldest clubs in my bag right now and were never fit for my game. My short game is also a weak part of my game and one that I would love to see improve. With that being said, I cannot express how excited I am about testing these wedges.

Congrats team! Very very curious to see if their claims are true - makes sense in my (admittedly fat) head, but can't wait to see what you all experience with the fittings/results.

Great opportunity. Thank you! Good timing as well. I've been looking to revamp and unify my wedge setup. Currently playing a mix of RTX4, Zipcores, TM Hi Toes. All different shafts. Hopefully Edel can earn a spot in the bag. I've heard great things.

Congrats testers! Interesting to see the spin difference on these as I just got a new Cleveland zipcore 56* wedge.

Hopefully these will help produce close shots into and around the green.

 

Would be fun to try these out.

These have intrigued me from the beginning.  I've wondered if a tiny weighted screw like that could really affect a wedge & it's performance.  🤔

I am excited to see what people think of these wedges. I played vokeys in the past and switched to sub70 jb wedges last year. They are ok but I’m not completely sold on them so I’m interested to see how these compare. 

Link to comment

Fingers crossed.  Would be nice to see how they feel compared to my ‘stellar’ Wilson’s, but I did just realize that this is a right hand only testing. Oh well, maybe I’ll switch sides of the ball just to see if I do any better.  Sorry about the erroneous entry.

Excited to track on the course with arrcos and in the simulator with trackman!

Super interested to see where this one goes after some of the success we saw with last years Edel putter test.  How much of a difference will that custom weight position make for your wedges?  

I know I've seen big changes in my flight on the driver when I moved weights around, will that apply for a slower, shorter distance shot for our testers?  

I guess only time will tell.  I can say that these certainly look the part! 🔥🔥🔥

Would love to try Edel SMS Wedges. 
Adjustable weight to tailor for swing type is great idea. I’m a digger. D grind sounds perfect for damp conditions I play in regularly. I have a Swing Caddie launch monitor to test against my Renegar wedges. I have an Edel putter that I love.

Great concept--have recently finished a 3 month short game school (all manner of shots from 100 yards in)..

Would love to put these babies through their paces !!

I've heard lots of good things about these wedges and their interchangeable weights in the head. Excited to potentially try these out

Haven't been on here in a while, so probably wont get selected, but this would be a fun one to test.  Especially since we're finally getting nice weather back here on L.I. 

Good luck to everyone who signed up!
