Paying $100-$150 for a mass produced "Scratch" wedge isn't any different than paying for an "Off the rack" wedge of any other barnd. If you buy a "Custom" Scratch wedge it will cost you more that $150. I KNOW there isn't a difference in performance from the 2. I'm not knocking Scratch, but OTR is OTR, period!

An OTR scratch wedge that is designed for your swing style is definately different than an OTR wedge from another brand.

All of Scratch's grinds are going to be available in their new OTR 8620 wedges as well as their OTR 1018 wedges, so I would disagree with you when you say OTR is OTR.

OTR wedges with many different grinds are overkill and not necessary for the average Joe golfer. Most don't know the 1st thing about grind anyway and don't care, but they do look at price.

This thread isnt about the average joe golfer.

You also said that paying for an OTR vokey vs an OTR scratch is no different... you are wrong. $100 for an OTR vokey vs $100 for a grind that fits my swing... hmmm... thats a toughy.

it's the KBS Tour. you can specify any shaft you want, it's just their preference. I don't know much about steel shafts so that's about as much as I can offer right now.

I'm not familiar with the shaft they use on the scratch wedges. Anyone have any comments on that?

I requested S300's in my wedges. You can get pretty much whatever you want.

I wonder if there will be some difference in feel between the cast and the forged lines?

There is a difference... but the performance is the same. I think it comes down to what type of feel you are looking for.

My new 2009 Vokey. $95.

Retail and actual selling price are two different things. If you're looking at cast wedges, the Scratch and Vokeys are pretty much equal on price. If want forged however, the price is going to up. That's just part of the "you get what you pay for" fact of life. If you want a 100% hand made custom built, exactly for you, the price is going to go up again. Same rule applies.

That said, $95 is a pretty good price on a Vokey. Nice score on that one.

... Link?

I am located in S.E.A. so we get things cheaper than the US. No link but I can give you the phone number... But the shipping will be expensive... Scratch here unfortunately are sold for $200+ and can't get a hand on the cheaper ones.

    • I've been Playing Golf for: 15 yrs My current handicap index or average score is: 15.6 My typical ball flight is: medium The shot I hate or the "miss" I'm trying to reduce/eliminate is: slice Videos:  https://youtu.be/eRtUwS51ouo https://youtu.be/8P_WTt72owI
    • I don't understand how the spectacle has come to an end. He's cutting to get rid of some excessive fat, but wish to retain the strength. If anything, he will go from a little pudgy look to a more defined look. And that doesn't mean he's stopping the training. The spectacle is not that Bryson has gained weight, it's that he's become stronger and is hitting the ball a mile, which he will continue to do. It's quite normal for someone who has gained weight from strength training to accumulate some extra fat and cut at some point to get rid of it.  
    • Day 15.  After work, hit 8- and 6-iron shots for ten minutes (and about as many balls).  Indoors, off a mat, into the net, real balls. 
    • I'll keep that in mind, my Snells are also made in Massachusetts. But mine listened to me yesterday, sometimes.  I got fed up with a bad shot and it wasn't listening, so I told it to keep hooking and roll into the rough.  And it did! 
    • Their shipping charges are out of this world...I was going to order a 0211 wedge and shipping was $30.00..After deciding to get a lob wedge to match, the shipping changed tp $60.00 I just refuse to do that.... I can get a real good price on the 0211 driver
