I'm giving some real thought to moving to a 54 and 58 wedge set. Keeping my AW from the set I have that is 50 to keep a good 4* loft change per club for a more even distance change. Plus that would add the 58 for those shots under 100 yards to give me a more comfortable feeling. Price wise these look nice, I just would like to see a review so I know a bit more about them.

Thank you Ernest

Nice to see they have some versions in lefty too, will have to give them a try.

Regarding the comments on bounce, we're attempting to change the conversation to what actually happens out on tour. So we take standard bounce clubs and put the various grinds on them to change the effective bounces. For example, a simple heel grind offers two bounces; a standard bounce when hit squarely and a lower bounce when the face is opened. 

 

The standard bounces are listed on the website. http://hopkinsgolf.com/product_info.php

We will be adding more lofts like 46 and 48 in a couple months.

This will make your wedge line complete in terms of lofts.

Could you for say, post what the static bounce is (square), and put an effective bounce next to it. I know its subjective to how much you lay the club open, but maybe do the minimum and maximum bounce. I think that would be useful information.

I think the best we can do is to show you a chart we have on our site that shows how the various grinds either lower or increase the effective bounces. Since the actual degrees of bounce vary so greatly depending on how open or closed the face is, ones hand position, etc., we can't really put a number on it. I hope this helps. http://hopkinsgolf.com/grinds.php

link not working for me...

 

Which grinds keep the lead edge low when you open the face?

post #30 of 61

The heel and heel/toe grinds are the most effective for lowering the leading edge when opened. The link works for me. You could just go to hopkinsgolf.com and click on grinds. It will tell you more.

Placed an order for two Hopkins wedges online, I'll be happy to share my thoughts once I get them.

Great! Let us know how we do. Thank you!

New Hopkins wedges I custom ordered on 9/24 arrived today.  I ordered a 56* and 60* with following specs;

 

Grind:  Heel/Toe -recommended by Hopkins website given the region (6) I live in.

Shaft:  HG OTM Black Onyx Wedge Flex Steel

Grip:   Lamkin REL 3GEB

Lie:    STD

Loft: 2* Weak

There are options for custom ferrule colors and paint fill on wedges but I went with standard.  I thought about an orange ferrule to match the grips but wasn't sure if that would be too distracting.

 

The packaging the two wedges came in was the best I've ever seen.  Instead of standard rectangular box, Hopkins used a thick cylinder box that was packed with heavy foam.  The heads we covered in plastic and sat snugly in cutouts within the foam base.  The grips also wrapped in plastic sat snugly in the same heavy foam with cut outs for the grips.

 

I'm taking them with me tomorrow for a round and will post pictures of the packaging and wedges then.  If they play half as well as they were packaged I will be a happy golfer.

Awesome.  Let us know how they do.  Did you get any custom stamping etc on them?

Alright, just got back and one couldn't ask for a better October day in NY to golf.  The wedges were great, usually will hit one fat or thin but that didn't happen today.   I'm not sure it's because they are new or there's something different about the Hopkins grooves but these things were pretty rough on the Callaway Hex Black Tours I was using.

 

As promised, here are some pictures.  This is the shipping container, it's built sturdy with thick heavy foam inside



Went with the orange grips and black wedge shafts, look and feel great.



Here's a close up of the heads, you can pick the colors for paint fill, but I went with the standard colors.

 

 

Here is the face of the wedges, can still see some ball skin remains

 

Obviously one round isn't enough to determine how good these wedges are but they performed well enough today that they'll be in the bag again this weekend and the Mizuno's will be sitting in the trunk.
