I currently play 3 Scor wedges;  50 degree, 54 degree, and 59 degree.

 

Short game strength is accurate distance control with my 50 degree wedge. Weakness is controlling distance and trajectory with 59 degree wedge.

 

Current handicap index is 10.4. 

 

I'm very interested in the Equalizer wedges, especially because they have the "V-Sole". My Scor wedges have the V-Sole and I love them but they are no longer manufactured.

Rick/ California

Mizuno 52.10 and 60.12

Strengths: Shots inside 50yds

Weakness: Deep bunkers

Current index: 11.7

 

I have been trying to decide about these wedges for a month. I love the looks and have been a fan of the new Hogan company since it re emerged. Also love my Mizuno's and don't want to leave them except for something better. Love to be selected to test them.

Sean - Massachusetts
Titleist Vokey SM5s
Solid with bump and run style chipping, but struggle with a pitch, higher chip or flop shot.  Tend to try to not short side myself as I will struggle to get up and down.  Pretty solid at distance control from 80-125 yards with my wedges.
Current handicap - 2.0
