Which wedges spin the most?
There's a lot more to buying new wedges than just focusing on the spin rate.
Getting the correct lofts, bounce and finish is key, as is picking between a blade and cavity back, not to mention things like full face grooves and high toe shapes.
But wedge spin is still very important. It's what makes your ball grab when it hits the green, helping you control those all-important short shots. And, as our test showed, there was a substantial difference between the wedges that produced the most spin and those that produced the least spin.
Here are the highest-spinning wedges in golf in 2020:

*All wedges were in 52-degree loft to ensure a fair comparison.
As always, we'd recommend you testing any clubs you're considering putting in your bag before buying them, as clubs perform differently for different golfers. We merely hope this test gives you a reference point on wedge spin rates and helps you decide which wedges you may want to test first.
