this has been weakest part of my game last four years. It would be great to have wedges that i have confidence in. Not sure of the criteria used but would love to test and hopefully fall in love with wedges.

Not putting my name into consideration for this testing opportunity, more due to the fact that there may not be enough golf season left here in this area than anything else.


Did want to say best of luck to all those who have submitted their names, and looking forward to seeing the reviews that can provide feedback on if the raw finish really makes a difference in wedge play.

First Name/City State: Rick, San Diego, CA

Handicap: 14

Current Model Wedges Played: Callaway (Original 2002) Forged 52, 56, 60 in Vintage Finish

What Appeals to You About a Raw Wedge: The oxidation of the steel to rust the club may give it a softer feel and could create a more grainy surface for better contact to create spin. I spend a lot of time playing 60 yards in if I don't hit the green in regulation and my wedges are often what make the difference between have a good day and bad day (losing 5-10 strokes) on the course.

Taylormade Milled Grind

The best part is that you can choose custom sole and grinds for better use. I love that idea, and the details they put on their site to show what could help which type of swinger.
