Very curious to see the results that people get with these. I have thought about going to forged wedges to match my irons at some point, so I will be watching these reviews with interest. I love the V-sole on my Srixon irons but struggled with it on Cleveland wedges.

Bob, Aurora, Illinois

Current wedges are SM6's 54 and 58 degrees

 

Strengths are getting out of the sand and hitting high shots at pins especially out of rough.

 

Where they are weaker is touch shots from close to pins and when the fairways conditions are wet and the ground is soft.

 

Current handicap is 16.

Brin Paulson

Chicago, IL

Wilson FG Tour 52, 56, 60

Handicap: 13 went up 3 last year.

I absolutely love my wedge game and my 56 is my favorite weapon in the bag. I think my weakness is the sand but part of that problem is not practicing enough from the sand due to not being in it often enough to care until I'm in it Ohhh golf. I would absolutely love to try some new Wedges and being that I am currently in love with my Wilson's I will give these a fair shake and a good comparison to my favorite gamers. Thank you for the possible opportunity.
