Cleveland CG15 & RTX 3

Callaway Forged 58 60 64

What appeals to me about the Raw Wedge is that I’ve never used a “raw” wedge, so I’m curious to see if it does add a good amount of spin. 

Hit ‘em straight!

Handicap is a 13


Vokey SM7 Jet Black 52°/8°, 56°/10°, 60°/12°

The Vokeys were the first set of wedges I purchased. Besides the name I really liked the looks. Soon after I started seeing more about how raw finishes provided more spin. Being that I just like many golfers love to see the ball check up would enjoy testing this wedges out!
