Dan: Friendswood, Texas.. Handicap: 8.. I play with two RTX-4 satin chrome wedges (52 mid & 58 full) and would like to compare theses to the Zipcor Raw. I will not go into this study with any preconceived notion about raw wedges.

Ping Glide 2.0  50*, 55* and 60*

More spin produced with more friction. Much less glare from the sun. Raw wedges don't show as many knicks or damage from things like hitting rocks or bag chatter.

Spencer / Edmond, Oklahoma

Handicap -4.7

Current Model Wedges Played: Taylormade Milled Grind 52/56/60

What Appeals to You About a Raw Wedge: I'm very interested in the playability of a raw wedge, such as the ability to control front/back spin, as well as side spin. The reduced glare from the sun is also very appealing.

Currently play Cleveland RTX3 58* in black finish.
 

I really like the dark, matte finish of my current wedge and the raw finish is another step in the direction of anti-shiny. I’m also really curious if there is more spin with a raw finish, especially around the greens as that’s where I struggle with spin.

I would like to try the new Raw wedges as I used to play Cleveland wedges and would like to compare head to head to determine replacement wedges.

Handicap 9

Current wedges: Vokey SM7

I like the idea that the raw wedge maintains the launch and spin characteristics over time, whereas finished wedges often see their standard deviation grow over time.
