Hmm.  I tend to leave the face open a lot... maybe this would work, I’ve been wondering for years why wedges are stuck in the Stone Age.  Yeah there have been a few “advances”... but this seems to be the biggest.  Too bad they don’t have a way to move it up too, for the ability to move the COG up.

True, moving COG would be cool.

I like the heel grind relief, that is something i custom ground into my 49, 53 & 57 using some shop tools.  Honestly that is a big reason I don't use new wedges because I'd feel so bad grinding away at a new SM8 or Zipcore right out of the box!  😬

And the weight screws are an improvement over my lead tape, but realistically I don't think I could help myself and some tape would find its way on the club.

I used Edel wedges for years before trying Vega this go round, and the built-in relief is second to none. There’s no off the rack wedge I’ve ever been able to lay as flat as an Edel. I’ve always thought they were the most versatile wedges available.

I sent my info to request a fitting.  I was told they expect to have them in stock on 4/25 at which point fittings will start.

Separate question, Mookie. I've often wondered are you the guy on the left or right in your avatar?  And then, who is the other guy?

No, we were in Dallas years ago on New Year’s and the restaurant where we ate offered helicopter rides around the city, so we went for a ride.

This bird didn't mention this only pertained to RH golfers. 

I don't blame Edel not making clubs in lefty but dang...guess I'll just drill into my Ping Glides and make my own moveable weights!

I checked with my local Edel fitter and its $150 for the fitting if i don't buy anything, $100 if i do. I assume that the cost would be the same for all fittings performed by Edel employees (whereas the cost would be different for Club Champion, etc.)

Trying to get an appointment setup a few weeks out for a fitting with the regional Edel fitter. Hoping the fitting is as extensive as the David Edel fitting process I have seen online. I have never been fit for any wedges, so I have no idea what bounce will fit me. Historically, i have taken big divots, but that was more due to a flaw in my swing with lowpoint control. I've overnight turned almost into a picker (not quite that drastic, but take pretty thin divots now).

I’m hoping for next week on the 5th... My guy hasn’t received his fitting cart yet, so praying he gets it this week!

Anyone tried the Edison Wedges? I’ve read some great reviews on them, and they claim to have advanced the technology of wedges as well. I actually got to this thread by searching the forum for discussion on them.

I have a CC full bag fitting end of May so will definitely ask about these Edel’s

If you do a search there are a couple of threads about Edison wedges

I was all-set to have my fitting done yesterday when I get a call. Turns out the store didn’t get all of the fitting heads in the shipment! Ugh. Now I wait...........
