Titleist JP wedges is absurd


Recommended Posts

I did not personally attack you dude. I simply corrected some baseless assumptions you made.

I've been waiting for this thread to pop up.   This is like getting mad at luxury and exotic car makers for not producing cheap cars.   Spoiler alert: You're not in their target market

For the life of me I've never understood the concept of the "average golfer" or the " common golfer."   So this is $2k for the experience, it is what it is. It doesn't mean you can't buy, or OEM'

How anyone can make a judgement about these wedges without hitting them is beyond me...     I'm gonna quote Steve Martin. "Criticize things you don't know about. Be Oblong and have your knees remove

Like I said I was really looking forward to this day. I had an order ready to go for a set of his wedges when he was solo. Wasn't trying to question his integrity. I've been waiting for him to come out the dark forever! I'm sure they are his designs. Just the looks aren't for me. And last I checked I AM entitled to have an opinion. I am sure they perform amazing, I can't wait for reviews. But they'll have to grow on me, as of today I am not a fan. So there ya go.

I just dont care. If you want ot charge a million for some damn wedges charge a million. I wont buy them. Trust me if I had the cash to blow id probably go. Not because of the wedges themselves but because the experience sounds fun. Im a club junkie. I like the science and how a slight change can make a huge difference. Seeing how we can tweak the bounce by a half degree would be awesome

This isn't just another high end golf product.  Three years went into the R&D of not only the head but also the fitting system.  At $2000, you're getting fit for a set of three wedges on what will be recognized as the most advanced and comprehensive fitting system in golf.  Not only fit, but fit by the guy that designed the head as well as the fitting system. It's probably about a four hours process. Then, the same guy will build them to your specs by hand while manipulating the internal weighting system so they are completely customized to you.  From start to finish, there is no other service offered like this in golf, to this extent.  All by the same guy, one by one.  That guy is JP.

Having been through the JP Wedges fitting at TPI, I can tell you that the experience is priced accurately.  Is it expensive?  Yes it is.  But the average consumer cannot make a phone call to an OEM and get what he is offering.

Great stuff, Zinger.

Just sent you a tweet, but if you could answer here as well, it would be great:

 

If you didn't know beforehand that the wedge body was hollow, would you have surmised it was based on the feel?

It feels as solid as a forged wedge.  The weighting system and bonding of the Titanium plate pressed on.  Think of it not as hollow, it's just a thin rear plate which permits the manipulation of swing weight and CG location.  The plate is extremely light.  You're hitting a forged wedge not a game improvement iron.

Just as I thought - love how it allows JP to manipulate where he puts certain weight throughout the head.  Makes every wedge he makes literally one of a kind.  

 

When do you unveil the set you ended up with?

Swing the wedge and the ball goes into the hole every single time, right?

Any idea if there will be more offerings from his shop? Or is his main focus this design?

 

I was hoping for his extended grooves and square leading edge. Do the pictures not show this or am I not seeing it?

They are the same spin milled groves that are on the latest Vokeys.

How anyone can make a judgement about these wedges without hitting them is beyond me...  

 

I'm gonna quote Steve Martin. "Criticize things you don't know about. Be Oblong and have your knees removed"

I'd love to hit these and go through the fitting. Product looks amazing, but I'm no closer to that than buying a new G Wagon. Still, I look forward to seeing the ones that Zinger has coming, just like I look forward to seeing sweet rides on the road.

 

And Nic, why don't you go put a live chicken in your underwear. :D

For the life of me I've never understood the concept of the "average golfer" or the " common golfer."

 

So this is $2k for the experience, it is what it is. It doesn't mean you can't buy, or OEM's can't sell, less expensive wedges. You want a $150 Wedge - they're out there. You want a $100 Wedge? They're out there. So are $59 wedges.

 

It's a bell curve - lots in the middle , some on the low end and some on the high end. These are on the high end for folks who can or want to pay the price. Not a thing wrong with that.

I am super excited to find these in a few years to try our used. They are growing on me a little, but there is no way I would buy these new. I'd be extremely p.oed if I hit the unexpected rock in the bunker or just under the fairway and destroyed that sole/face.
