I have played Cleveland wedges for quite a few years but never tried a Raw Wedge. That would be interesting, love to compare.

Titleist Vokey SM7 55 Degree, Cleveland RTX4 60 degrees

Would love to get rid of the glare from a traditional chrome finish wedge.  If I get more spin...great, but I'm not expecting that result.

Vokey SM7s

Curious to see what differences there are compared to an un-chromed wedge as well as what kind of differences there are in the spin & flight of fresh wedges on partial/flighted shots.

Shane - Hackettstown NJ

Handicap - 1.1

Vokeys 52.08 F Grind, 56.08 M Grind, 60.04 L Grind. S200 Shafts

Playing raw vokeys in the past was nice to look at as the little specs would get my mind off obsessing over the shot. Not sure if they spin more but I liked to tell myself that.

What Appeals to You About a Raw Wedge


I have been playing RTX wedges for years for the feel. I take my glove off and love the control and fee it gives me in hand.

I have not played the inbetween wedge and people keep telling me I need it for my bag. I would love to give it a try. There is  par three I play every Sunday that is for the gap wedge.

 

We'll be choosing the testers next week, so check back to see if you have been selected.

Handicap: 3.9 Index

Current Model Wedges Played: Ping Glide Forged, Blue Dot, 54 & 60 degree

What Appeals to You About a Raw Wedge: I like the look and expected spin/control performance.

I just switched from Ping 3.0 Stealth wedges and finding the forged to be even better feel and control. Would love to compare to a raw finish.

SCRATCH (0)

Ping Glide 2.0 Black dot

Low MOI - C-Shape Grind - Grooves (Spin) - Finish - Higher Toe Line - Classic look - Ability to select your grind (bounce) and leading edge - Ability to select shafts and grips, makes fitting much easier for professionals and amateurs.

Handicap: 15

Currently play with Nike SV (56) and Titleist  Vokey (60). 

I love the look of these new wedges, but I’m most interested to see how technology (in the areas of feel and spin) have advanced with these new clubs.

The Zip core has a modern yet aggressive design that is appealing to the eye. As a junior golfer I won several tournaments using Cleveland wedges and have thought about making the switch back.
