I would like to test the Bridgestone Tour B WX-1 wedges. I tested the TM SLDR irons in 2014 for another blog.

1. John / Swansea, IL (near St. Louis)

2. Handicap = 20.4

3. Current Wedges = Callaway MD3 48°/8.SS + 54°/12.WS and MD.PM 60°/10
         All three shafted in KBS Tour R.flex

4. Your desired set/lofts: 50° + 56° + 60° / Any chance for Modus 105 R-flex shafts? Also, Midsize grip, or grips in box?

Glad to help you, JPO
