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 necessary are proper golf shoes?
      By WUTiger · Posted
      If it's a par 3 course or one of a couple of flat nine-hole layouts, cross-training shoes with nubs might be OK. Otherwise, I want spikes.  I went out to my home course in November to try out a new 3W, but found the driving range closed. So, wearing cross-training shoes, I decided to play a couple of holes with two other people. Sleet and snow started, and on the second hole I had trouble. I left a tee shot on a par 3 on a deep-grass hillside between the side of the green and a deep greenside bunker. The grass was slippery, and I slid 10 feet into the bunker twice trying to get a stance for a swing. I had to pick up. Two weeks ago, I had an uphill short wedge on another par 3 (at a different course). The shot was 60 degrees uphill, and I had to make an arms only punch so I didn't lose my balance. Without spikes, I would have needed to take an unplayable lie. I want my spikes. Modern soft spikes shouldn't hurt the green any - if you walk smartly and don't drag your fee.

      So is Super Bowl matchup already set?  I know the cards and Bengals are going strong for now but I feel like its a packers and patriots Super Bowl this year.  Obviously if Rodgers or Brady go down all bets are off that being said they both have the inside track at home field advantage (I know its early) and both qb's seem to have extra motivation.  Brady's being obvious and Rodgers trying to get another ring after the meltdown the packers had in the NFC championship last year.  I don't see either team having more than 2 or 3 losses going forward.  With the injuries to big ben, the colts laying an egg, and Dalton being well Dalton in the playoffs I don't see a real threat to New England.   In the NFC Green Bay's biggest threat is/was Seattle who they now have beat and are 2.5 games lead of in the standing.  The NFC East is a joke, Detroit seemed a formidable foe last year but it looks like they will drop to 0-4 after this week.  Atlanta could be a tough task but they still have to prove they have a defense.  Arizona and GB play week 16 in Arizona but looking at each teams schedule I would guess GB would come in with a better record.  Also Palmer has a significant injury history.  Rodgers is in his prime and looks like he can do anything he wants on the field.  Im pulling for a Packers Super Bowl win (for obvious reasons). 
    • Curious.....So...Why is a slice so easy to hit?
      By LagShaft · Posted
      When I started I had a wicked snap slice and thought I could fix it with something I'd read about swinging to where you don't want to go.  That just lead to an inside out swing which didn't fix my slice because my problem was getting the club face closed.   Last time out I was back to my old game of slicing again but a friend fixed it by having me move my right hand over my left a little more on my grip(to where it should be).  Turned my shots into a slight draw the rest of the day lol.  By now you'd think I'd have that grip thing down pat but I guess the Devils in the details in this game.
