They look nice, but if I was carrying 3 wedges, I'd get them in 3 different lofts ;)

Nice.

The 'EF' is actually the electroformed groove and face made from nickel cobalt. The main advantages of this design is long lasting groove sharpness. 

If anyone remembers the old Ram TW wedges from a few years back, they made a few in cobalt with "spin grooves" which were an absolute beast. Many pros couldn't get their hands on them fast enough...

Should be a winner.

Here's the "old" Ram design:

Clearly the "spin groove" text struck a chord with TM. Needless to say the new TM wedges have conforming grooves whereas the Rams unfortunately do not.

Who cares?

 

That was my thought so I figured that I'd share it.  I'm happy with my wedges, if I were to look for new wedges I'd go Hogan, Ping (had great success with Ping wedges in my lifetime), Wilson, Mizuno and I'm quite certain I wouldn't have to look anywhere else past that.  In fact I'm certain I wouldn't make it past Hogan.

 

Sorry TMag, I will look at you for driver/fairway metal.  You were the one that marketed yourself that way and while you did I went elsewhere for irons/wedges/hybrids and I struck gold.  No need to darken your door for those pieces of equipment.

Taylor Made Stealth 10.5  Aldila Ascent Red R flex

Ping G410 5, 7, 9 wood  Alta 65 R flex

Wilson D7 forged 5-GW -  Mamiya recoil 460 R flex

Edison Wedges 54 and 59 KBS Tour Graphite 80's

EVNRoll ER 5

Titleist Pro VIx optic yellow with revkev stamped on them

Still on that elusive hunt for a 3 wood that I'm able to hit - I don't know why, I crush the 5 wood and it's really a 4 wood anyway.

First impression is they look really busy - may perform well, but there are enough options out there for wedges that you can get both looks and performance, so these wouldn't be near the top of my list.

I will stick with my new to me SCOR's. I have been hitting my wedges very deadly from 90 yards to 10 yards. I am very good when at 70 yards with my 57*.

 

 

The TMAGs may look pretty but they won't score like my SCORs.

Fairways:  PXG 0211 5W & 7W w/ Evenflo Riptide CB  regular shaft and Tour Edge E521 9W w/Fubuki HD50 regular shaft

Hybrid: Ben Hogan VKTR 3 Hybrid(18*)w/Recoil ES regular shaft

Irons: Ben Hogan Ptx 5-PW w/Recoil 660 Regular graphite shafts; soon to be Titleist T300

Wedges: Ben Hogan Tkt-15 (49*/53*/57*) w/Recoil 660 Regular shafts 

Putter: 33”  Evnroll ER2 w/Evnroll Gravity Grip 

Bag: Vice cart bag(Black). 

Ball: Maxfli Tour CG & Titleist Pro V1x.
