Sexy Wedge

23 posts in this topic

Just saw this wedge at Golfsmith.com... Looks sick and the price is pretty crazy. I'm looking to replace some wedges this month (xmas gift to myself...) I love my nike wedges but I'm considering either some BVs or staying with Nike.. Anyone use Bridgestone wedges i know WC design has a good rep but just want get some input. These wedges look sick as hell though no doubt!

Don't be afraid to buy something just because others don't use it. Most folks just follow the flock and hit the popular wedges on tour. Endorsements aside, what the tour players use should not dictate what "normal" golfers use in my opinion. You like these, buy them. One of the best sets of wedges I ever had were Dunlop beryllium copper wedges. Seems I paid about $60 each for those. Bought my Cleveland 588's when I wore the Dunlops out. Many good wedges to choose from and that is a bit of a double edged sword. Makes it that much tougher to pick just one. Me personally, I am looking at Miura for my next wedge set. Sexy for sure. At their price point, they should be.

It won't rust persay but if you hit it when its damp out/play when it rains it will turn green like a penny or the statue of liberty.

It depends. Are these copper plated? If so they will rust just like any chrome plated wedge. Are they even real copper? Or do they just have a finish on them.

EDIT: Just checked their website: http://www.bridgestonegolf.com/produ...-liquid-copper They are made of 8620 carbon steel, and that page doesn't even mention being copper plated or anything, it's just in the name. These will rust.

It can develop a patina, but copper is not capable of rusting.

If copper could rust, why would it be used for plumbing?

You guys ever seen the statue of liberty?

Like I said, these aren't cast from copper. Who knows if there is any copper even involved.

Assuming they are copper plated they WILL rust just like a chrome-nickel plated wedge because the plating wears away. It's the EXACT same process as a chrome-nickel plated wedge. The Chrome-nickel plating doesn't rust either, but when there are scratches, the raw carbon steel under it does rust. The copper they use for plumbing is actual copper, not copper plated steel.

I was not talking about cheap platings, I was talking about copper. Copper does not rust. My wedges I mentioned earlier were solid copper.

I know that for every 1 person who likes the looks of the Ortiz/Pelz wedges, there are 5 who hate them! But I love these wedges.... both for looks and feel

I have always liked the look of those wedges. Many golfers want to play the same brands the pros play. Vokey, Cleveland, etc.. are very popular for this reason. There are many other wedges just as I good I have no doubt. But until folks see something in play on the PGA tour, they often won't consider buying it. Not saying I agree with it, but that seems to be the case.

Copper corrodes, just much more slowly. Also no, it doesn't form iron oxide in the process.

i would never play that wedge, and not because of the name of it either 1. bounce is waaay to low for a 56º 2. it looks like a spoon (too round of a leading edge and toe) but hey, play what works for YOU, right???

Oh I agree with this 100%, and it is alive and well in many other areas besides golf. I build hot rods as another hobby, and have hand-built a few handguns as yet another hobby, and use brands and services from a lot of unknown builders and craftsmen. But a lot of them are just as good, and in some cases, better than the largely recognized brands. And I get a lot of the "why would you use XXXXX?? I've never heard of them. You should have used OOOOO instead." I usually reply with something like "because everyone and their brother uses OOOOO, that's why!"

Dats right!

Now you have this golf newbie curious.... what would be considered "enough" bounce for a 56° wedge if 14° is way to low, considering Vokey's 56° wedges are available in 8, 11 and 14?

Dats right!

the pic looks like it says 56/06º???? no???

bounce is a preference on wedges me...im a digger and like to take a decent divot w my clubs (especially wedges) having more bounce allows the club to ...well..."bounce" off the turf rather than dig to China on my 56º i have or like anything above 12º of bounce and even on my 60º, i prefer more than 9º max 11º some guys prefer less on a lob wedge, but not me if you dont practice w a 60 with a lot of bouncem you do run the risk of skulling it, as the leading edge will sit higher at address, than a lower bounce LW would but skill also plays a factor into this if you are to wristy and flip the club alot, regardless of bounce, you will hit it fat or skull it all day long keeping a flat left arm/wrist, hitting down on the ball and accelerating through is the key to consistent wedge shots

    • cracking or scratched face
      The faces are unsupported and sit on a hollow cavity inside the club. It's unsupported to allow it to flex more for ballspeed. Unfortunately, that can cause it to break more easily. Basically, it's like punching through drywall: it's easier to break through when the wall behind it is empty than if it's attached to a brick wall.
    • Jack or Tiger: Who's the Greatest Golfer?
      Of course he is entitled to his opinion.  But when he lards it with attempts at bolstering his opinion with stuff like "I saw Jack play", and "He was nice at a clinic" and challenges people as to whether other people saw Jack play like he did and just where did you see him play . . .  well then scorn comes into play.  Especially when his claim is not just that Jack is better, but he claims that Jack is " by far the best".   By far?  Really?  There is an assessment I hadn't previously seen in the thread even from the most avid Jack supporters.  One can argue for Jack rationally, but claiming he is 'by far" the best, and adducing as evidence the facts that a) he saw him play, b) Tiger is not winning now, c) Jack was nice the time he saw him at the driving range?  Is that remotely a rational argument?  Not to mention this little piece of . . I don't know what:  " What is Tiger doing now? He sure is not winning. His historical achievements are nice but they don't win tournaments."  means or has anything to do with anything.  I mean, replace the word Tiger with Jack and it is equally true and equally besides the point.  So your criticism is completely off base.  Reasonable people certainly can disagree.  There is a difference between scorn at someone's opinion, and scorn at the reasoning process they claim as the basis of their opinion.  He gets his opinion for free. But his facts and reasoning, should he choose to share them as he did, are subject to logical analysis and challenge.  You are free to like chocolate, but if you give your reason for liking it as "my favorite hat is brown and so is chocolate" then people will look askance at you.  As they should.
    • cracking or scratched face
      I would expect them to just replace the one club. That's what warranty is for, defects in material or workmanship and if they determine there is a defect in that club I would expect it will be replaced.

      Sorry it's the xr standard irons from last year. What would cause the crack?
    • How to eliminate blowup holes
      Hey guys and gals! I need some help reducing or preferably eliminating my blowup holes. Im currently playing some of the best golf of my life but the blowup holes are killing any chances of shooting a good number. I aim for bogey golf and usually see 3-5 pars per round with the occasional birdie. I consider bogies good holes and average 6-8 of those a round. But the doubles and triples are destroying my card. Can anybody help me with this?
