My first look at Piretti wedges (Houston company known for their putters)

3 posts in this topic

So some of yall may have heard of Piretti.  I think a couple guys on tour have in the past or currently use their putters.  Padraig Harrington is one of them I believe.  I got hooked up with a couple of their wedges.  They're forged in Japan and I think Piretti has been selling them for a couple years now.

First Look:

The clubs are good looking at address.  First thing I really like about them is the black finish.  I am told they will "age" pretty quickly and the pictures prove it. Not much different than any other wedges, but they were fit 1* flat for me and 1* weak to turn the 55* into a 54* and the 59* into a 58*.  The pictures and review are on the sand wedge.

Attention to detail:

Once the "good" camera gets charged here at the household then you will be in for a treat in the form of some high quality photos of these clubs.  The pics I took are from my iphone 4 and don't do the club justice.  But if you look at the back of this wedge you'll see the Piretti logo lettering milled into the club, and the "big" Piretti P milled in above that.  The detail is incredible.

First shots:

Got to play the SW shortly after picking it up this afternoon from the Piretti warehouse.  I don't know if it's just fresh grooves or the placebo effect, but this thing sticks to the green.  I had to text my contact and ask if they were conforming LOL.  The "sweet spot" has worn in nicely after only one round (picture below is after a chip-in birdie on the 14th) (oops stop me if I'm bragging...)


To borrow a cliche they felt like butter.  No snap when you hit the ball... just a nice soft thwack.  Had to double check to make sure I made contact... and yes, sweet spot on the face and the ball is on the green a foot away from the ball mark... that's a first :P

If you notice a little red coloring it's because I asked for paint fill and then changed my mind to keep it white... hehe.

PS didn't pay anything outrageous for these and got a ton of compliments on the range and also some strange looks... "Piretti makes wedges now?!" (This is their "hometown" so they are well-known here).  I got to say "yeah I don't know if they're available yet but they made a couple for me).  Awesome!!  Oh and the best thing... the price was reasonable and not much more than one would pay for an SM5.


Soft feel, tight grooves, stylish detail and Piretti's first go at wedges at a reasonable price?  A+, now if only I could afford one of their putters...

And before anyone says anything about the rug, I know it has to go.  The wife has already told me.

Wow...those are some good looking wedges.

Ugly phone pics don't even do them justice... but I just had to post right away lol.  I'm going to try to get the big boy camera out tomorrow and snap them in some natural light up close.

      How does the bank lose money? Is inflation that bad that the 30,000 euros of interest is not enough to cover it? Is it because the bank no longer has that money at their disposal to invest for a potentially larger return on their investment when compared to a mortgage?

      paradoxal bank fact : in our banks in france if you take a mortgage of 100 000 euros for 20 years at 2,5 interest rate you will probably pay close to 30 000 euros of interest. this seams huge to customers. nevertheless the bank might loose money or have à max a 200 euros margin per year. the only way we make money is on the mortgage insurance policy part and getting a long time customer in the bank.

    • Myrtle Beach in early March part duex
      Okay I think you may be a little confused on your location...You said that you are staying at Holiday Sands North close to the Boardwalk.  Your Hotel is centrally located in Myrtle Beach.  A lot of people not familiar of the area mistakenly think that "North Myrtle Beach" is referring to an area in the Northern part of Myrtle Beach.  Actually it is a separate city that is located a good ten miles from where you are staying.  The closest "North Myrtle Beach" courses to you would be the Barefoot Resort courses which are about 13 miles from you and are considered higher end courses where you will be paying probably around $125 per round to play unless you book a package deal or play with a member.  The next closest North Myrtle Beach courses which are mid-tiered and a little more price friendly that may seem to be what you are looking for are a little farther north into North Myrtle located probably about 15 to 17 miles from where you are staying.   The closest courses to where you are staying include Myrtlewood, Pine Lakes Country Club, River Oaks Plantation, World Tour, and the Legends courses.  All are probably right within the amount of travel time that you are looking at.  I would second the earlier poster that you contact @bnlongdriver.  Tell him (Brian) what you are looking for and he will set you up nicely.  I would definitely avoid GolfNow for anything related to Myrtle Beach.  Very few courses down there work with Golf Now and the few that do are lower tiered courses that you probably wouldn't want to play as there are many better choices for the money that you will be playing.  Looks like you will be going right as the peak golf season is starting to get underway so last minute deals, although probably available, will be a bit more difficult to come by.  However, if this is the route that you want to take, again I would contact Brian as he has the ability to get a lot of very good "48 hour" rates.  If you go ahead and contact him now and let him know that's the way you want to go, he will be able to keep you in mind and as the time of your arrival nears will have a better idea of what to find you.
