About the only negative so far is that I'm kind of hesitant to practice with them for fear of the milling being prematurely worn off and losing the ability to add so much spin.  

I wouldn’t worry about this. I’ve had one set, 50, 54, 58 for several years with lots of practice and the milling is still fine. I bought these used too. These are 304 stainless steel and are pretty hard from a durometer standpoint. Chrome plated steel ranges between 66 - 70 Rockwell and 304 Stainless is 79, I looked at several sources. So 304 is more scratch and wear resistant.

Firstly, Great job from the Spousial Unit.

Secondly, Unless you are hitting them in the sand a lot. You probably won't degrade the grooves while practicing. I had a golf coach tell me one time that chips, and bumps and runs, and even pitch shots do very little to dull the grooves in your wedge. It's the bits of grit and more importantly the sand that can "sand down" your grooves over time. So, keep 'em clean and practice away.

Hahaha!  You guys are funny!!!  Christmas is a funny thing...I got two wedges and she got a Dyson and an irobot.  She was pretty happy with her Christmas too...

I suspect I'll be using the Dyson a lot more though...so I guess it was more for me as well...lol!!

I bought my wife a home appliance for Christmas ....  only once!   As it turns out, it became my responsibility.  She taught me about Christmas presents.

One thing I'll really be keen to see is if I still will get that same type of aggressive check when it gets warm and on dry greens.

I will say that the greens Sunday weren't acting super soggy (they had rolled them) and there was still a layer frozen about a half inch to an inch below the green's surface. That will really tell me if I'm going to see major improvements..  

If they really are that much better then, when coupled with my much improved putting, my short game should really be a strength for me this year!

    • Ok, I see what you mean, Erik. How about Henrik Stenson for a modern example? There are a bunch of videos of his shots in the 2016 Open Championship which he raises his head post P6, with a driver as well. 2016 Open was when he averaged over 7 strokes ahead of the field average, which hadn't been done since Tiger in 2000 US Open. The video examples you used of Tiger was post 2012, after he couldn't swing like early 2000s anymore. If you look at his tee shot on #2 of final round of 2000 US Open, you'll notice he definitely dips longer than late 2000s-early 2010s. Henrik Stenson in 2016 Open is probably the closest and best modern example I can come up with in terms of the head raise after P6 movement.
    • when I go to the gym and do weight training and gain some muscle on my arms, chest, etc. it somehow affects my golf game and I start using those muscles to swing  and basically I start using my arms only and my game sucks. It feels like I loose mobility. Anybody have specific exercises to help my game? that to me is more important than gaining muscle... Thanks
    • I have a set of these I bought before I knew much about clubs. They are a low end model from the early 80s. They hit pretty good though and seemed a bit more forgiving then some the of pro model blades. Had a great day on  short 5300 yard course with them one day.
    • Day 11.  Today was a good day for practice.  I found half an hour in the afternoon to (slowly) hit balls (indoor, off a mat, into a net, real balls, 6- and 8-iron).  I also had time for Speed Sticks in the backyard.  I am encouraged by Green 112 mph on the final iteration.
