Taylormade Hi-Toe (Unofficial Review)

Recommended Posts

That side-by-side is a dealbreaker. I never gave these much of a look but this puts things in a very clear perspective.

Wow, that post was clear as mud.

I’m super impressed. They’re not obnoxiously large and I can see why they’re so popular.

Haha. All good. Yeah, I was expecting a frying pan, and I think they are actually smaller than the BStones by a hair, definitely compact looking. I hope they never quit making these. Might have to stock up.

Compact is the word.

I’ve been seeking a 58* for the longest time that I love. I’ve tolerated a lot of designs and haven’t really found anything I loved as much as my Cleveland 900 wedges.

These are worth a serious look.

Not sure what the ATV grind looks like, they have a different leading edge. But you can get the 58° in the 4 Way sole. I am a guy that HATES offset and these are not off putting at all. More of a little gooseneck.

I’m probably going to add a 51° (50 bent weak), a 60° 4 way sole, and a 64°.

They shape alone is enough to sell me after getting one in hand. A touch more triangular shaped than “traditional” wedges but not by much.

Add the non glare face... mmmhmmmm

They’re definitely not obnoxious. And let’s be honest, they’re validated from their Tour use.

Good luck, we are expecting to see photos when the others arrive!

I never was a fan of the Eye 2 wedges back in the day. But in the course of my wedge hoeing and experimenting I sorta fell in love with them. I ended up with a Callaway PM Grind I got cheap. I messed around with it some and it was too light for me to begin with plus at 13* Bounce that was way too much bounce. I ended up hand filing it and reweighing it for me. Yeah I like that high toe cut flop. Can not see too many lies I can't get it out of.  Basically I carry 2 wedges but lately I have been carrying an old Eye 2 plus at 50*--- It does not hit like a 50* but hits the ball really high and spin good gracious. I will end up trading or scrounging some deal and end up with a TM High Toe

I still love my Eye 2's; maybe that's why I went with the Callaway PM Grind over the Hi-Toe.  Yes, the PM has a lot of bounce and that might be an issue for me.  However, I got the 2019 version and they put a C-Grind on it, and that seems to work pretty well.  I got out today, first time in 6 weeks because of snow.  I was impressed with chip shots; haven't be able to hit anything longer because the rest of the course is still closed.

LOL I guess I have the "S" grind on mine since I hand filed mine. Got it to around 8* which is my standard

This post intrigued me. So I went to taylormades website and went thru the custom options. For the most part it seems like highway robbery. Lol. 11 dollars a grip on almost all grips is outrageous. I wouldn’t pay 11/grip if it was a super stroke lol. The tour issue shaft is same price as you can buy one off eBay or golf works. So the tour issue shaft with a mcc plus 4 grip runs past 200. Nope. Can’t swing it. Also the whole point of milled grind is for those tour players with unique hand ground clubs to get them exactly right. So they can crank out wedge after wedge for tiger etc. buying a milled grind off the rack defeats purpose. I’d want to hit one and have a master grinder start working on it and dialing it in and then say here’s your perfect grind. The Ben smith grind. Lol. But I’d be willing to pay 200 for that wedge but for that kind of attention you’d need to be a superstar or have super deep pockets

Yeah. It was a significant up-charge for the shaft I suppose. But... now I can buy the normal one, put my shaft in it and possibly make $10-$15 selling the stock one.

 

The grind is very similar to the Tour Preferred Wedge line which I loved, but they were too harsh feeling. 10° of bounce with a nice wide sole is a touch of class that I can’t wait to put on the grass.

 

Went with the stock grip because I like tour velvets and Burgundy is my favorite color. Reminds me of rich mahogany and leather bound books... and of course lamp.

 

And I’d rather shell out the $ for wedges over a 460cc balloon any day.

Quick update.  After watching some of my video from my last SIM session. I won’t be going back.  I started to notice that if I pushed one, I’d pull the next, and so on... not something I generally do.  Thanks@cnosil for bringing that up in another thread.  So spin numbers, and distances will be all feel.

Wilco. A ways off from being able to hit it outside yet, but full shots coming at you.

Man that’s steep... we’ll see if I can pull it off (boss could veto these easily) . Was planning on adding a driver, and 2 more wedges. These things would take the whole budget.

Gorgeous though.

Great stuff here.  I wanted to game a 60 degree, but couldn't explain well enough to my wife why I needed a $180 club.  I did hit them last spring and loved it.  The feel off the face is like butter.  I also felt more comfortable if I opened the face to do a flop shot.
