im in desperate need of new wedges. although the wedges i have are nicely shaped and have those sharp box grooves that everyone seems to love, i just dont know if im getting the most out of them
Ram Tom Watson BeCu 55* SW and Ram Tom Watson 60* SW
I noticed the 60 wedge although has a 14* "rake" on it, which makes it fantastic out of the sand, i cant really get the club comfortable on those greenside flops. plus i think the bounce might be hurting its short range fairway play. the BeCu is fairly solid and has slightly less bounce i think maybe 10* if i guess? they arent the softest in terms of feel and even good shots are rather too firm.
I noticed Scratch wedges all over certain websites that sell them and i figured they were a bit too highly priced for my budget but they also are one of the few companies offering wedges with many different avenues in customization of the clubs actual specs. They have 3 types. yet im not sure of how important each type is considering some are specific to non aggressive players where as i tend to be creative with shots and move the ball around in my stance a bit.
Anybody have any feedback on Scratch? Since my last wedge post has got little to no help on wedges and specific kinds. Also is there any help on specific bounce deg for a higher lofted wedge? preferrably a 58. I'd like to open the face but im not sure if the bounce holds back the ability to open the face, as well as hurt its tight lie capabilities. Just a spec-wedge even from rough to fairway.
I've considered a few kinds:
Tour Edge Exotics Xtreme spin tour black.
Wilson staff fg Tour
Scratch (CNC version)
Adams Watson Black (2011)
Most of which dont have much feedback other than the watson which has raving reviews and to be honest anything but Vokeys are unusual to see around here.
P.S. Are Vokeys' really THAT good? i swung one around a bit and didnt find any special thing about it accept its price. which i expected to be much higher like scotty putters (over-priced)
