Thanks MGS and to all the well wishers! Can't wait to put these through the paces and see if they can kick my Pings out of the bag. I'm reading past wedge reviews on the forum to prep, but please let me know if there is anything in particular that you'd like to know about.

I’m really curious how these perform on full swings. I use all wedges for this purpose and find the CBX wedges I use to come up short creating a big gap issue where I need them to be tight.

I will say that if they're anything like last year's wedges, full shots should be on the money as long as your swings somewhat dialed in. Even if there are no improvements whatsoever, they will absolutely incredible.

The 1020 forging should add more feeling and buttery softness around the greens and full shots. I play 1020 forged irons and the feeling is devine.

the more I practice, the luckier I seem to get..
