Hey, Guys, Thanks.
I must point out that the contrast between the groove area and the heel and toe areas is not as it appears in the pics. When I considered the Edels, I did not like the contrast on the Edel Website pics -- the grooved area appeared grey. When you hold them in your hands or at address, they appear far different -- more like the satin chrome.
The lofts, in 5-PW, are 27, 30, 33, 37, 41, 45. My wedges are 50, 55, 60.
My current gamers are Miura PP-9003. Obvious differences?
Miura Lofts are 25, 28, 32, 36, 40, 45
The Miuras have more of a square toe, more offset, a slightly thinner top line, and less bounce (glide).
The bounce numbers on the Edels are 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15 (5-PW)
The bounce numbers on the MIura are 3, 4, 6, 7, 9, 11 (5-PW)
The sole width appear similar on both irons until you see the grinding on the trailing edge of the Edels that effectively thins the sole, and further grinding adds bounce.
For those unfamiliar with Edel, they are custom irons (like Miura, Edel fits the club to you as to shaft, length, swing weight, loft, lie, etc.) with a higher bounce than most for better club-turf interaction (more forgiveness and less wear and tear on the body).
"Turf interaction is the most critical determinant of an iron's playability. Edel irons are fitted to precisely match the angle of attack created by each individual golf swing. The combination of the proper grind, bounce angle, weight, and shaft creates more solid and consistent ball striking. Edel irons allow an unparalleled level of fitting and customization, and are hand built to match every unique attribute of a player's golf swing.
