Was looking at the specs and I noticed the PW is 46 degrees and my current GW is 52 degrees. I was concerned about gapping issues....and I needed new wedges so I ordered the Hogan Equalizer wedges in 50, 54, and 58. It just seemed right to get new wedges from Hogan since they supplied an iron set free for testing (abuse). 

Nice! Ben Hogan Golf is also encouraging us golf nuts to roll the dice on a set of Equalizer wedges this weekend (like + comment). The groovy winner will be selected on Memorial Day.

The Equalizers have caught my eye too. I think I’ll wait and see if the Players Combo’s unseat my current set in the bag first though.

I’m liking the equalizers much more as I continue to play them. The v-sole took a little time to get used to coming from the razor sharp leading edge of the sub70 wedges

I'm a big fan of the V Sole that Terry Koehler created. I loved it when trying it on the SCOR wedges that I game and it was equally as nice when trying it on Hogan's TK wedges a couple years back.

That was nicely done Deejaid.   For those who haven't seen your work before, I'm sure they'll be blown away by some of your stuff.

Thanks buddy. As a video editor I feel like I need to do my review as a video. Unfortunately that means MGS seeing me on camera, and I’m not as cute as my daughter Layla was in the Wilson review last summer.

I was skulling them-

I suppose I was used to just nipping them to keep from too much digging or something? The v-soles are almost like a mini-bounce. But a full swing let’s you get after it and I don’t seem to make those 2” deep pelts so much now

I'm a peltor also, so I'm sure there will be a learning curve
