Has any one tried Edison Wedges, they claim a shifting of weight to higher on face for more consistent strikes.

We definitely allocate more of the weight above the hitting zone. It doesn't necessarily make your strikes more consistent but rather your shots. It helps your bad shots look more like your good ones. People don't tend to think about smash factor when thinking about wedges, but this weight difference equalizes the smash factor (efficiency) across a bigger part of the face so you don't come up as short on bad strikes. This keeps you out of the bunker or whatever danger is guarding the front of that green!

I've had my Edison wedges (50, 55 and 60 degrees) for about two months now.  They replaced my G30 50 degree gap wedge and Ping Glide 56 degree sand wedge (never carried a 60 degree lob wedge before).  I can honestly say they have made a significant improvement in my wedge play.   Given my relatively short hitting distances (broken neck, new knee, two shoulder surgeries, etc.), for me to score I need to pitch, chip and putt well.  The Edison wedges were well worth the investment. 

As stated in their literature, you do hit the ball with a lower trajectory as compared with my Ping wedges.  What I appreciated most so far is the consistent distances I get from various lies and the significant increase in the spin that I create with these wedges.  I'm not know for creating much of any spin with my previous wedges.  But it's not uncommon for me to hit a wedge, have it bounce once and then stop on a dime.  It took a little time for me to get used to that characteristic.  Now, I love being able to hit the ball knowing that it travel the desired distance and stop for me.  

Looking back on my statistics since getting my Edison wedges, my index has dropped about 1-1.5.  The number of putts per round has also dropped 1-2 strokes because I am hitting it closer to the pin (more one putts).  Overall, I couldn't be happier with the performance of my Edison wedges.
