Wedges

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
I'm using Ping Eye 2 SW and PW still with the new(used) Hogans that I got. The clubs are 20+ years old so I was wondering if I should think about replacing them.

Re: Wedges

I'm a Hogan fan...so my biased opinion is that you don't necessarily need to change them. If it like how it hits...keep hitting away. In fact...I still have a set of forged Hogans that I am thinking of pulling out for a round.

Re: Wedges

Only 2 reasons to replace wedges...

1) They don't suite you and don't feel good to you
2) You have worn the club out, you migh tbe losing some control if your grooves are worn too low but then again you have porbably go used to them and getting new grooves may reduce your accuracy at first.

Re: Wedges

I actually am in the minority that thinks wedges should be replaced every few years. I carry 3 wedges GW, SW, LW in my bag, as well as the PW, and they see a lot of action. The grooves get visibly worn to me over the course of a few years. I recently tried out the Tom Watson Adams wedge set for $100 and really liked them. They dont give me the spin as the Vokey design does, but the feel I get is wonderful. Plus, the price is perfect.

Are the wedge grooves being worn because of the wedge brand that is being selected? A wedge that is priced less than a box of balls?

For grooves...to determine if they are worn...I would suggest bringing them to a reputable club fitter and have the grooves measured.

Just an observation...I find it odd how cheaply priced wedges are compared to other clubs...when they are one of the most important scoring club in the bag. People are forking over big dollars on multiple drivers in a year and for Scotty's putter...yet are hesitant to spend ~$100 for a wedge.

Playing minimum of 3 times per week and using them as much as I do, they do get worn. My last set were Clevelands that if I remember correctly I bought for $109 per wedge. They were great wedges for about 40 months. A little over 3 years. But I just couldnt spin them anymore and u could definately see some wear. But I also think living in FL and playing rougly 12 times per month and that doesnt include going to range, can wear on a club.

3 yrs is reasonable. I probably have been changing mine out about every 5th yr or so after getting them inspected/measured by a club fitter...even though I have been very careful to wipe down and clearing the grooves on all my wedges after each shot.

If you liked the Clevelands...try the Callaways

Re: Wedges

I tried the Callaways and the Vokeys. I must say, call me crazy, but I like the Adams cheap Watson wedges as much or more than my Clevelands.

I love the Adams heap Watson's. I lost my Cg10 lob wedge like a year ago, and I had to do a fast replacement with a $19,95 Adams Tom Watson 60ยบ meanwhile, and I haven't switched back!
