Callaway MackDaddy Forged Wedge Review: You should know
Forged from soft 1025 carbon steel to maximise feel and feedback. Wedge legend Roger Cleveland’s refined the head shape and a progressive CG lowers trajectory to deliver extra control. An extra groove close to the leading edge maximises spin, especially on shorter chips and pitches. An R grind sole increases versatility, particularly on half shots or from tight lies.
Callaway MackDaddy Forged Wedge Review: We say
The whole forged v cast wedges debate at one time was intense. Its subsided a lot recently thanks to new materials and heat treating processes meaning cast heads can feel a lot like forged. So it’s interesting Callaway felt the need to bring back a forged model. Compared to Callaway’s MD3 Milled wedges Roger Cleveland’s done some very subtle tweaking to the head shape, and we really liked the sharper, squarer leading edge which is geared up for some accurate ball striking. If you need to know how the Forged performed against Callaway’s latest Mack Daddy 4 our consistent hitting test pro saw a small gain in spin (500 RPM) in favour of the newer MD4 model.
Callaway MackDaddy Forged Wedge Review: Verdict
Callaway wedges are well respected and played on tour, which is what you’d expect if you’re employing a wedge legend like Roger Cleveland as a designer. We like the Forged it’s a lovely club, but if you don’t specifically want a forged wedge we’d challenge you hit it alongside a Mack daddy 4. Then decide for yourself on the performance difference.
