Edison 2.0 Wedge Member Testing Review - BOS edition


We’re back for another BOS edition review.  This time I was fortunate to be able to put the Edison 2.0 45* PW through its paces to see if it lives up to the claims of a lower, more penetrating ball flight.  The CG and unique design of the Edison 2.0 should have a higher level of forgiveness versus a traditional design to add up to more accurate wedge play and better strokes gained on the course.  


For those of you who don’t know me; Hi!  I’m Bryan, or as I’m better known around these parts, GolfSpy BOS.  I’m a 36 year old single digit handicap with hopes and dreams of getting to scratch and about 1/18th the time required to put in the practice to do so.  When I’m not golfing or dreaming of golfing I can most likely be found on some youth sports field or carting one of my three wonderful children around to some activity.  Thankfully, my oldest has already taken to the sport and my other two have shown interest as well!  So, It seems I will have some built in golf-buddies for life.  But enough about me, onto the review!


First, thank you to Edison for including a wedge for me to use on this review.  I am excited to take the 45* PW and put it toe-to-toe against the Edel SMS Pro PW currently in the bag.  

First Impressions - 10/10

Edison does an above average job with the unboxing experience and first impressions where some of the big OEMs may want to take note.  The box is Edison branded which is always a nice touch and my wedge shipped wrapped in plastic and with a Edison branded neoprene iron cover.  While I wouldn’t use them out on the course this was a nice touch and a little added protection during shipping.  I am actually a fan of a little “patina” or “chatter” on the clubs so once I start playing them.  

But enough about the box… it’s a nice touch, but it’s the dinner roll, not the meat and potatoes.  Thankfully, the filet mignon of this review was surprisingly up to par as well.  It’s time to talk about the Edison 2.0 Wedge itself now!

Aesthetics - 8/10

I don’t know how else to really say this, but I was so pleasantly surprised when I slid the aforementioned neoprene cover off the wedge and got my first real life look at the Edison 2.0 PW.  It so far exceeded the expectations I had for it from the stock photos online.  Is it different?  Yup.  Is it ugly?  Not at all.  It is a wonderfully and purposely sculpted tool with top notch finishing and crisp clean lines, printing, and paint-fill.  The custom ferrule with a matching gold ring is a nice touch too.  The body is a satin and brushed finish that creates a clean and glare-free surface no matter how you have the wedge in your hand.



I think it’s also important to note that the wedge was much more compact than I was expecting for something toting extreme forgiveness as this is.  It looks perfectly at home sitting in between my MG3 52* and my Edel SMS Pro.


The Koehler Sole is well executed and can be seen easily if you get the light right and actually looks very similar to the leading edge of the SMS Pro, so I anticipate it will play well for me too.  


The last thing I want to touch on is how good it looks in the address position.  Down by the ball I could not see anything that would suggest I wasn’t playing a traditional wedge design.  There was nothing off-putting in terms of top-line, shape, or offset.  I genuinely feel that this wedge looks so much better in person that anyone who is interested but concerned with the aesthetics should really give it a try, you might just be as surprised as I am.


The Numbers - 20/20

When it comes to numbers there were a few things I wanted to focus on.  Based on the design of the Edison 2.0 Wedge I was supposed to see three main things;  Consistency in Smash factor, High Spin, and a low, penetrating launch angle.


In order to determine how accurate these statements were I hit balls on several different occasions with the Edison 2.0 Wedge against my gamer.  I compared all the data and found that the Edison PW really did perform up to Edison’s claims (The AW in these comparisons is the Edison vs my Gamer PW).


My smash Factor was equal to my gamer PW while maintaining less variation from shot to shot.  Nothing to complain about there.  On to everyone’s favorite wedge test;  Is it “high spin?”  Yes it is.  As a reminder, I am testing the 45* PW variation of the Edison 2.0 Wedge.  From what I’ve read about wedges, spin at that loft is going to have to do a lot more with dynamic loft and other impact metrics than grooves and face friction tech.  However, I still did notice an increase in spin of about 200-300 RPM versus my gamer PW.  I have to believe this is due to the higher center of gravity inherent in the design of the wedge.  This would lead to a little more spin from the gear effect alone, if all else is equal with my strikes.  Last, but not least, we have launch.  The Edison PW consistently launched lower on average by about a full degree.  It was still plenty workable, as I was able to hit high towering shots if needed, but the default shot was a bit more penetrating than that of my gamer PW.  Combine that with the consistent smash factor and high spin and we've got a winner in our hands!


On The Course/In The Garage (Hey, it’s late Fall/early Winter in MA!) - 18/20

Due to a few factors, I’ve had more time on the Rapsodo in the garage than outdoors with the Edison 2.0.  This has allowed me the freedom to quickly change targets and also get extended periods of work with the PW to compare against my gamer.  

What I saw, particularly in range sessions, is that my strike moved around more than my gamer.  I would relate that more to shaft selection than head design.  Despite the varying impact location my dispersion and accuracy was consistently better with the Edison over my gamer PW.  It was hard to believe at first, but it has happened more than once so I think there is something to it that I will continue to monitor.  

Here are the results of one range session where you will clearly see greater variance of impact location, but also tighter dispersion down range according the Rapsodo read out.  



IMG_7935.jpgIMG_7926 (1).jpg


The fact that I saw that much of a tighter dispersion in both depth and width was shocking to me.  I mean who wouldn't want to be over 30% more accurate?  going from 31 yards of distance dispersion to 18 is the difference between being around the flag for a makable birdie putt or possibly being off the green long or short.

The Good, The Bad, The In Between - 17/20

I think there can be great benefits from shopping with a smaller specialty equipment manufacturer.  Customer service appears to be top notch and Terry Koehler has clearly put a great deal of thought into the design of this wedge.  Even they note that large OEMs are starting to take notice and move mass up higher in the wedge head.  They also have a top notch trial program of 30 days which I have not seen elsewhere from an OEM.  I think that speaks volumes to their confidence in the Edison 2.0 Wedge.  

I think at the PW loft some of the selling points are a bit more tricky unless you happen to be someone that is looking for 4 specialty wedges in the bag.  But as a type that out, if the accuracy and dispersion continues to be tighter than my gamer PW perhaps it’s exactly what I should be considering.  I think the Koehler sole would be a good fit for me in the scoring wedges, but given my swing I think I’d like to see a “full” sole option for lower lofts.  I didn’t face any particularly soggy or soft conditions yet, so that is TBD.


If I had any recommendations for improvement I would ask Edison to build out their shaft offering a bit.  It does seem they are able to custom order some shafts if needed, but seeing some of those options and pricing within the checkout tool would make for a much easier purchase.  Oh, and since I’m asking nicely, I’d love to see a bronze or black finish option as well.  I just love to see a darker finish on my wedges, so having an option there would be awesome.  

I think it’s also worth noting that I’m starting to see Edison Wedges with some fitters.  My local fitter posted a story on Instagram and I noticed an Edison 2.0 Wedge.  I think that’s a great next step to see if the Edison brand can make its way into more bags.


Play It or Trade it? 17/20

I will continue to evaluate this PW and see if it could somehow replace my PW from my iron set.  While that is a tough hill to climb, I will certainly look at what Edison has when it comes time to replace my MG3 wedges.  If the PW does find a permanent home in the bag I will likely need to reshaft it as I am not super consistent with the KBS tour 120.  I’d consider dropping in a SteelFiber i110s and seeing how that helps with face impact consistency, or going to the Tour Issue S200 I have in my MG3 wedges as well.  


Overall Total 90/100

The Edison 2.0 Wedge is different, but it also appears that different equals better in this equation.  I saw a more accurate, penetrating, and consistent club versus my gamer on both full and partial shots.  You owe it to yourself to take the Edison challenge and use their 30 day trial to see if the Edison 2.0 Wedge is the one for you.

The Edison Challenge: Featuring Edison 2.0 Wedges

Our picks for Most Wanted Wedges were just released and it just so happens we have one of the contestants in line for member testing!  We are very excited to be looking for four testers to test, review, compare and keep two Edison 2.0 wedges. 

Edison makes some bold claims with their Edison 2.0 wedge, claiming the “Koehler Sole” is the most versatile sole in the category offering a “high bounce angle in the front of the sole with a low bounce angle on the rear portion.”  They also claim to be forgiving and better suited to the amateur golfer.  “Instead of catering to the needs of tour pros, the EDISON 2.0 wedges were designed around the way you play the game. They have the most efficient distribution of clubhead mass in the category to deliver unmatched distance control and forgiveness for any level golfer – with added spin and more penetrating trajectories a likely bonus.”

Bottom line: Edison feels their wedges “deliver more forgiveness, improved distance control and enhanced spin, all without compromising precision, feel, or versatility.” 



Please welcome and congratulate our testers for the Edison Challenge!





Congrats to our most recent testers! I look forward to hearing about these wedges and the gains they may give you. Best of luck.

Great!  Look forward to analysis of these wedges and comparison to others on the market today,

A former plus handicapper who must settle for mid 70s to mid 80 scores today.  After taking 10 years off due to back issues, my driver length has decreased by 40 yards on average.  I look forward to any training aids, shaft improvements, club enhancements to get back part of what was lost.
