2020 Wedges - ranked by spin rate

Published:

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:

Ben Hogan Equaliser –––––––––––––– 10,270rpm

Honma T//World TW –––––––––––––– 10,101rpm

Titleist Vokey SM8 –––––––––––––––– 9,942rpm

Callaway MD5 Jaws ––––––––––––––– 9,917rpm

Cobra King MIM –––––––––––––––––– 9,561rpm

Ping Glide 3.0 ––––––––––––––––––––– 9,398rpm

Cleveland RTX4 ––––––––––––––––––– 9,179rpm

TaylorMade MG Hi-Toe ––––––––––––– 9,106rpm

*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.
