Maltby TSW Wedge (56/12)


Recommended Posts

Our Sponsors

What to do? I got a set of DBM’s 2 years ago, always wondering why the f-.....k are my gap and pitching wedge so close to each other like 110 and 115???? Corona and pulled the bag cleaning and swinging in the house set up against the wall and o my, wtf gap is longer than pithing by 1/2. Ok now I know. Pulled the trigger on a set of PTM’s 5-G with a 52 and 56 TSW, just arrived this morning, beautiful and  WTF gap is longer than pitching!!?!?!? 
Hey man, I bet if you were to call Golfworks and tell them your situation, and have them look at the order sheet, they'd probably send you the corrected lengths with a return label to send the others back. Sounds like they just switched the GW and PW shafts.

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

They look pretty sexy in the bag also 🙂

So I took the late plunge on these because I had a set of Xcaliber Spin Wedge shafts on the way. After all these years I have never tinkered with them. I ordered the 52 and the 56. First off they are

I ordered the kit and assembled this myself. Just the basic kit with the TT Score shaft. I wanted this to match the weight of my iron shafts. It feels like a...shaft. Feels like the TT DG 115 shafts.

So I played Dunwoodie with my new set TSW 56, 52, PTM’s G-5. Looks fantastic and feels amazingly soft, go straight and super easy to hit! 56 cam out of the bunker with great control/ distance. My yardages have changed from the DBM’s because of the stronger lofts but working great, 56-100, 52-110,G-120, P-130, 9-140, 8-150, 7-160, 6-170 struggling a bit with the 5, moved from light graphite to 115 steel and its working great and straight! Thinking I might have to go with a 105 g in the 5i

On a lot of my builds I stay heavy in the wedge and go lighter at the top of the bag.
When the tour x had a 105g option. Wedges to PW where 105g, 9-7 where 95g 6-4 were 85g. What i would wind up with was a near constant weighted shaft set.
As the new RT shafts come out and the weight options will go from 75 up to 105 ill do a set similar and see how it plays.

They are actually being built now. Will be a little while before they are ready for retail.
The TS-2, I could hit that with a baby draw and it was stupid long. Actually when it got down the the 9i and GW they went simply too far for me.

I was hitting the 6 ptm sweetly but the 5 with the ttlight is not working at all? I think what I will do for now is just bag my dmp 5 that I hit well and wait for the new shafts and re shaft the 5ptm? Bethpage tomorrow here I come!!!

I look forward to your opinions of the TSW after building a set of TS1s I'm missing a 50* in ym bag and also thinking of balancing my wedges to 50,54,58 compared to 50 56 60 I feel like i have a huge gap from 50 to 56.

I was playing 50, 54, 58 and v changed to 50, 54, 60. 

  • 50 set Ping G2 U wedge
  • 54 Maltby M+ Tour 54
  • 58 Maltby M+ Mid 58
  • 60 Maltby MG Tour 60

The 58 is not as versatile with the sole grind it has. I am much more consistent with the 60 close to the greens with tight lies so I switched it out. 

I didn't need the 60 for distance as I never take a full swing with it. 

Actually, I try to not take a full swing with any wedge because I get too much backspin that rolls of the greens so, I usually club up and swing 3/4 - 90% to control what happens on the green better.

Wow. Im more than pleasantly surprised to see they kept a smaller head size yet gave the sole such a relieved leading edge.
The past few years Maltby have embraced the 4 way or relieved sole all across the product line. It works for so many players yet still appeals to the better player by keeping a small profile.
The MG Tour can be brutal in turf contact as its a sharp leading edge. These look like they will laugh at poor turf conditions.
These are exactly what I would be looking for in a wedge. Had I not just reloaded with the M+ 52 56 I would be all over these.

That is exactly why I stopped carrying my 52 MG Tour and went with the set gap. 

But, in the 60 MG Tour I find the bounce profile and edge design helps me clip the ball so well that I am more accurate around the greens with it than something with more bounce or forgiveness.

Something I'm finding out more about the TSW.. or at least the 56° is that it's actually quite forgiving but with excellent feedback.

I had an approach the other day that was 112 out. I immediately knew that I struck the ball high on the toe. My buddy was watching and said "great shot man!".. then in mid flight I said "naw man, it was super toey, it'll be short". It landed 5' short of the pin and about 2' offline. He then said, "not as toey as you thought huh?". Looked at the club and the ball mark was right in the top pocket of the toe. 1mm off and I probably would have shanked it. At most I lost 5-8 yds of distance and the direction was negligible. Not to mention, it just bounced once and slammed the breaks.

Also, it just glides through turf and thick stuff pretty effortlessly. So far I'm finding no reasons to have any other wedge other than my set Gap (51°)

Back spin on shorter shots and ability to control the amount of spin is really something else! The TSW quickly becoming a very strong candidate for favorite club.

I’ve neglected this post for a few weeks and love what I’m reading in that time. One thing that rings true for me is this statement right here. Not only do they feel great but the performance is as good as anything I’ve ever played. Last week I played and almost made a Rory 5

...that’s when you’re in the middle of the fairway inside 100 and you make bogey...

 

390 par 4, 80 in and a front left pin with a trap guarding that front pin. I took my 58 from the left rough and straight up missed it. My mark was high on the toe and I knew the minute I hit it, I was going to end short. Nope. Landed on the front edge and rolled up to give me a look at birdie. 
 

The confidence from knowing I can miss a shot and still end up within a tighter margin of error is priceless. 
 

If you’re on the fence, give one a shot.

It's quite obvious that Maltby outdid themselves with this wedge (as they have done many times over). Wouldn't it be just a riot if it somehow made it into the MGS 2020 Most Wanted Wedge test?! Would have so many going .. wait.. what? Who? Huh? "What just happened?" 😵

I am still waiting for someone to say something negative about these wedges. If I’m being critical, the wide sole and limited bounce / grinds will be an easy target. Overall, TSW wedges would work for a wide spectrum of golfers, even ones who over analyze their needs.

Yea I would agree with bounce options since those that are finding these likely see the benefits of different bounce and grinds. I wish they could get more love they do really make some fantastic clubs and would love to see them do something like Sub70 and brand it slightly different then the component side.
I would be ecstatic to see this in MGS wedge testing.

With the wider sole there is much more effective bounce. This isn't designed as a wedge you could shave with. The relieved edge and generous sole make it super playable. If you need more of a players wedge the Tour MG is the one.

We know that. I’m saying for those who are trying to kick it down before giving it a shot, that would be their exclusionary criteria.

Used my 54° for the first time and it felt good. I didn't have any full shots with it but used it on some short shots I would typically use my 60 on but it felt great. I had some great success with it and now I want a 60. I did hit a great sand shot with it though and it worked very well.

Played with my 50* Tonight as well got a full swing and partial on the course and some shots can on the range. The full swings felt and flew great the partials I need to practice more. The club performed but I didn't.

I really enjoy this wedge it has a great shape and really performs. I was reaching for my 50 at times that I would have use 56 or 60(non TSW) because of the lie and the bounce this club was giving me. It was right in the distance I was looking for and in a good majority of the time it landed and stopped. Made some craters on the greens landing and stopping on courses that were quite firm.
