Had another round with my current wedges and had a couple holes again where my eyes nearly got burned from the glare. Really hopeful these raw wedges take care of that problem and retain performance with the patina. Getting more pumped for these to come in.

Either that Oregon sun is brighter than SoCal sun or you are a vampire...can't say that I have ever played a round where the glare from my wedges burned my eyes! I wear shades but they are not polarized (based on studies that show polarized is not best for golf)

Z i p k o r e season has arrived!

Well being so close to Cleveland HQ certainly helped this get here so quickly (Huntington Beach, not actually Cleveland). Nice to come home to after a not so great round. Beautiful wedges, alm

Haha. Just when the sun hits right. I embellish by saying burn, blinding is more proper, especially when i play in the mornings and there is some water also on the wedges.

Is it the glare off the face of the wedge or the top line? My wedges have a pretty dull finish on the face but are shiny around the edges with a torched finish so maybe that is why I don't get a lot of glare?DTW_2458_web_1024x1024.jpg.99944d0adf9b27d373fb46fd840dcb97.jpg

definitely the face. I can't see the score lines when it glares back at me.

I can't play without sunglasses, but I also live decently close to the equator so maybe the sun just hits different. It's one of the reasons why I can't play clubs with chrome finish on them, or silver putters. I hate wearing my shades on the green because I'm already bad at reading slopes, but I have weaksauce eyes or something and it hurts my head to keep them open in bright sunlight. The wife hates it when we take pics because my shades are always on, and if I take them off I close my eyes, LOL!

Raw, or hand polished, I think these will be fine for me. My last 3 wedge sets have been black/satin black for the same reasons, and they also just appear smaller in black and I like the look of it?

Sorry I am late to the thread, just finished a round trip roadtrip to Nashville. I am stoked to have been chosen for this test. My wedge game is my absolute weakness, and source of most frustration during a round.

I try my best to remember RGC's rule 17b:

 Laugh at the bad shots

But when it's every other hole where I miss a scoring opportunity because the wedge game, I struggle to laugh.

Woooo, went to a Cleveland event today to demo these and get spin #’s. While these weren’t the raw finishes the spin numbers increased from the older wedges. Also the drop on the ball was phenomenal. Can’t wait to test them for real!

good to hear. What ball did you hit with since we know some balls are more spinny than others? With k-sigs I can still get back up with my old pings but with TP5s I get one or two hops. Curious as well with the zipcores and the spinner shaft.

They were brander with the mizuno logo, just the provided practice balls. 
 

speaking of spinner shaft, it feels good. Can tell the tip is a bit softer. The wedge feels solid and a bit heavier (which I like)

Looks like my fellow testers and I are going to be receiving our wedges this upcoming week! A few of us already got FedEx notifications that they were sent so with that said...

Anyone got any questions so far? I know with this test coming off the heels of the earlier Zipcore test, most folks might have already had their questions answered and the Zipcore family of wedges. However,maybe you have some specific questions about the different offerings from the "Tour Rack" or anything else you have questions about?

Beautiful wedges, almost wish they wouldn’t rust, but maybe I’ll love that look as well. Getting them right now tomorrow morning, usually pretty wet out there early, so that’ll start the process.
