Great start OG... how does this compare to a chipper? What's the range where you feel comfortable using it...?

Can you take a full swing with it?

Have you tried it from a bunker yet?

 

Have fun... looking forward to seeing your progress.

OG - which wedge are you using - the 45 degree? They also ae hyping the 55 degree and the 3CSi wedge. It wold be good to get feedback on these clubs as well.

I have the 45 degree. When in deep green side bunkers I use my Cleveland Smart Sole wedge which is 58 degrees.

Great review start! So you're going to swap out the grip? We're you chipping from cushy lies or tight lies?

I'm going to change the grip ASAP. I'm use to holding on to big things. [emoji6]

 

We got a boat load of rain Monday night so courses in my area are still drying out. I did find some tight lies today although damp and it was easy. I had some fluffy lies too and it blew my mind at my success. Here's a guy who hops out of his truck, pops open the box, tees it up while playing for money and has success!

 

I can handle 15 minutes pre round working with it so I can't wait to actually have a grip added that is comfortable for me and some actual bonding time with it.

lol naw buddy I wasn't liquored up.  In fact I haven't had a beer or anything going on two weeks now.  I will say I've been hammering down the prune juice pretty hard.  

 

I'm the kind of guy who will try something golf wise only if I think there is a benefit for me.  I'm also the kind of guy who doesn't give a rats arse what others think when they're looking in my bag. The proof will be in the pudding and you have 60 days to try it out so I figured why not?   I'm losing strokes around the green and if it works cool, if not I'll get my money back.  Simple....

seen the ad for this club on the golf channel and was curious. chipping is an area I could use help in. I bought the x-act tank and I cant seem to get it under control , I took it out by itself to practice and for every good shot I hit 4 poor ones. could be the operator. 

 

thanks for the review, look forward to hearing more about it.

Practicing is something I can't spend over 15 minutes at because of some physical issues.  I'll be putting in at least that amount of time before my next round of golf.  I'm sure there will be some negatives I'll run across however I haven't seen a club yet that's pure perfect.

Sounds good to me! Totally agree - if it works for you, then that's all that counts!

 

Those initial results appear pretty promising.

Yea it's pretty cool to say the least.  There's a long way to go with my review however I'm seeing some promising stuff from the get go.

.

To be honest, I think limited practice is going to give a more realistic view of the performance of the club as it would more accurately portray the habits of the average golfer.

 

Weight-wise, I'm curious if it compares to your SS-58 ???

 

 

Hey that's a good point!

 

I think it's heavier as it's got some meat on them bones.    I'll compare the two tomorrow and get back with ya.

OG - Great info! I am convinced that narrow soled blade wedges are not the best choice for most of us. Thanks for taking the time to write this up!

I'll be interested to see how things work out, OG. The weight of the club aiding in not-so-great lies sounds like something that would benefit a lot of golfers, especially those that don't regularly play in well-manicured conditions such as myself!
