I am retired and a regular player at Torrey Pines. I play from the forward sets of tees which allows me the opportunity to reach greens in regulation therefore putting for birdie. I currently hit D-300 wedges as I like the looks of them, but would love the opportunity to hit your test clubs and provide honest feedback from a senior.

Ping Tour S 54/60

Would be interesting to play something new, but not made to look new and see if the rust really helps performance. My current wedges also have a ton of glare so having the rust makes them more playable.

Tour Edge TGS Wedges (and yup, I can generate backspin even with those cheap, amazing little guys).

What appeals most about raw wedges is the idea that you're essentially encouraged to use them more and more to let them develop. Like a wine, the concept is to let them age and breathe. I think that's a great mental concept for golfers to remind us that setting up comfortable final shots into the green of 120 yards or less is the ideal. So with raw wedges, the more you use the wedge and let it rust, the more spin you get, and your wedge game essentially grows with the club.

Taylor Made sim p wedge and a milled grind 60* wedge

Get better spin and a newer chipper I would also like a 54* or 56* wedge instead of just a pitching and a 60* wedge.

Have not used Cleveland wedges since forever - would like to try the raw finish on the 50/54 wedges and see if it increases spin.  Maybe they will make me look like a Playa!
