What we say...
Forged from soft 8620 carbon steel with a trailing edge grind that narrows the sole to improve contact from all lies. The high carbon content softens the feel, making it the perfect material to execute precise pitches and controlled chip shots. The Tour Black wedges feature a tour preferred classical tear drop shape. The trailing edge grind narrows the sole to improve contact from all lies, while the heel grind makes it much easier to open the face for flop shots around the green. Lofts: 52°, 56°, 60°
As reviewed in our Wedges Test 2014: Chrome, shiny black finish makes it look more upmarket. Bounce positioned to the rear makes the leading edge sharper, suitable for someone that picks the ball cleanly. Tended to dig from sand. Produced very high spin from the mat and the rough on the assessed 50-yard shots, perhaps down to the “spinner” shaft. The levels of spin greenside weren’t as impressive. Shiny black finish held up well. The sole tended to dig on tight lie shots, but got high spin levels on fuller pitch shots.
