Balls checked and stopped really quickly on chip shots, while it has a good feeling swing weight.
The clubhead shape is a little bigger than many of the other wedges, and it has a square leading edge that doesn’t look so comfortable when opened up for bunker shots.

What we say...
The WG-706 was a pretty good all-rounder, but it simply didn’t shine in our test. The clubhead shape is a little bigger than many of the other wedges, and it has a square leading edge that sits crisply behind the ball for chip shots, but which doesn’t look so comfortable when opened up for bunker shots. The brushed finish looks stylish, but we didn’t like the bold graphics on the back of the clubhead, which we thought just cheapened the overall look. When tested around the green, balls checked and stopped really quickly on the surface, but they felt a bit clicky off the face.
This wedge has been around for a while, but our testers thought it delivered the goods. Chris rated this as one of his three favourites in the test, while Dan loved the feel and the weighting. A real solid club from a top brand which continues to raise the bar.

I recently purchased a full set of these wedges 52/8, 56/12 and 60/8 at a very reasonable price and have seen my handicap tumbling. The 60 degree wedge has made the biggest difference to my game, with lovely feel, it gives me great confidence when I step up to the ball (even from deep rough). The swing weight seems perfect on these (they are heavyish which encourages you to swing through the ball) and they sit behind the ball very nicely. The steel shafts on all are the same length which just adds to the consistency of the shots (like having one club with 3 different lofts). Bunker shots with the 56 degree wedge feel very easy and I now step up to the ball knowing I am going to put it reasonably close from wet or dry sand. Since having these I have not hit any of the dreaded thins that used to be all too common around the greens. It is very nice to think that from 90 yards in, an up and down is more than just a possibility! May not be to everyone's taste but certainly worth looking at if you need some help close in.
very good spin rates , sits great behind the ball, can`t fault . Only reason i don`t give it five stars is because os a small amount of glare in sunny conditions.
