Mark, Northern Ohio

Ping Anser forged, 52/56/60 DG Spinnners

Pretty darn good chipper, full wedges not so much

Oh hell, call it a 19

 

Love dem forged wedges. I write for a living and I'd purely love to write about these. And I will work them out bigtime (I have 1.5 acres out back so I can knock 'em around pretty good when I'm not playing them. I promise a careful and complete review.) Just sayin'.

Aaron  Fort Ashby, WV

50* Cobra Forged Tech Recoil shaft

54* Original Pelz wedge

58* Original Pelz wedge

I am a very good wedge player, but have not found a better wedge than the original Pelz series.  I have tried all kinds of wedges, but always go back to the trusty Pelz.  The biggest problem with other wedges is consistent spin and the ability to flight them high and low when needed.  I had a Ben Hogan wedge about 20 years ago, and loved it but have not used other hogan clubs since.

My short game is my strong point, but I've often wondered what a nice of wedges would do for my game.
