I tried it last year, but it didn't work for me.  Granted, I am a high-handicapper; so I'm not discounting that this is part of the problem.   I tried it for 3 separate 1/2-hour sessions, and I don't think I hit one decent pitch shot onto the green in all that time.  Seems like on every shot I either popped it up short, or bladed it thru the green.  The company was good, though, and quickly granted me a refund.  

In retrospect, I'm thinking a 65-degree wedge was too much for me.  I understand they have 2 less lofted versions, but I guess I'm a little gun-shy about trying them.

Fair enough mini review. I think you may be right, though, about the 65....

In general (emphasized) what works for me .. and may not work for you .. is a LESS lofted club; for example my PW is 45 degrees and I use it a lot near the greens .. especially on longer pitches.

WITB of an "aspiring"  😉 play-ah ...
..Tour Edge Exotics EXS 3W/HL (17*) and EXS 7W (both Tensei CK Blue)
..Callaway Super Hybrid 23 (PX Catalyst) and Big Bertha 19 5H (Recoil ZTR)
..PXG 0211 6i-GW (Mitsubishi MMT) 
..Cleveland CBX2 54 and CBX 60 (both Rotex graphite)
..Evnroll ER5 (33", 385g, P2 Reflex Tour)

Not sure where you came from - 60 or maybe 56? Why did you try a C3i? And why that particular loft? That would be good info to post here so we could provide some feedback.

 

From a high handicappers perspective: my feeling is that lessons and practice are more effective than the 'silver bullets' I see advertised on the Golf Channel. Short game requires a ton of practice - most days I'll hit 100+ balls with my 60*. and 56* That coincidently is now the best part of my game. My wedges start at 44 then progress to 48, 52, 56 and 60. Now if I could only drive and putt as well as I can chip

I tried the c3i because I was having all the issues they said the wedge would help cure!  When I ordered it, I didn't realize it came in different lofts.  The 65 is the one they market; the others seem to be there so they can sell you additional wedges if you like the first one.  If I had known, I might have tried the 60 instead (my wedges now are 45, 50,and 55).
