Okay I love the wedges I currently game....they’re last years tested wedges from Bridgestone. We testers all loved them and it would be cool to see how the new ones stack up. I assume they’ve improved them but with head to head against the previous models I think is a great comparison.

Handicap is between my ears or a 3-5.

Current wedges: tour b xw-1 2017/18 model.

Desire same lofts as I have: 50/54/58

 

From the website it looks as though loft grind is preset based on which loft one gets.

Man I would love to give these a shot - they'd look so good next to my Bridgestone irons, but somehow I don't think the weather would cooperate with this test.

Sweet sand wedge Batman!!

So just like  the other fellers from last year's XW-1 wedge test have stated, these wedges should be top players in anyone's bag. The only clubs that i'd consider swapping out last year's Bridgestone wedges for would be new Bridgestone wedges😁. Yes they are that good! I realize that chances are likely slimmer due to having already been chosen for the same exact test last year but it's definitely worth a go. 1020 forgings should make these that much sweeter to play.
