This is great! I've been seriously looking for a nice matching wedge set to replace my current "grab-bag" set. These are really good looking!

 

Stuart, Chandler, Arizona

52*/4* Maltby DBM

56*/12* Pinseeker CNC Black

60*/11* Cobra King Classic Grind

Strengths

Very accurate distance and direction from 100 yds in.

Variety of "off the green" shots for varying lies, distances, green size, etc (thanks to Phil and Youtube).

Ability to read chips like a put often setting up 1 putt (within 5').

60* is my money maker for any shot around the green (including bunker).

 

Weaknesses

None to think of, wedge play is probably the strongest part of my game. Can always use more spin right? :P

 

Handicap

14 and falling


:cobra-small:  F8+ 9*/ Fujikura MotoreX F1 6X
:adams-small:  Tight Lies2  3 wood (14*) / UST ProForce V2 Black (S)

post-76102-0-38507100-1525284411_thumb.jpg  TS-1 3 - P / TT DG 105 (S+) / GP Microsuede

post-76102-0-38507100-1525284411_thumb.jpg  TSW 50/6 + 56/12 Wedge
