Callaway JAWS wedge

Recommended Posts

Hey!

I am thinking about getting the new Cally JAW wedges, however it is now fall nearly winter up here in Canada and I can't really give them a go outside. So I thought I would see if anyone has played with them yet and could provide some feedback.

I was in the store and the sales guy told me straight out not to buy them because they play hard like their previous wedges. I didn't use the last Cally wedges as I am still gaming my x-tours however I thought this year a change was in order.

Any sort of feedback would be greatly appreciated.

Don't take my word for it as I am not a big fan of Callaway.
There are better wedges out there, namely Mizuno MP T-10, Titleist Vokey 2009 and 2010 and Clevelands CG15.

u just cant say that especially at a 28 index, is different for everyone your opinion doesn't mean jack as far as those are better wedges

Hey dillweed, that's not really for you to decide is it? Let the OP decide whose comments to listen to (or not).

I expect these clubs are good just like every other club made by every other reputable person. Quality companies don't put out crap very often - especially not in wedges.

I am an avid Callaway fan, but I think my next set of wedges are going to be the 09 spin milled Vokeys. My buddy has the 56 degree Jaws wedge and it feels almost identical to my current Callaway 56. It was a little more forgiving tho and it sure can check up the ball nicely. I just think the oil can vokeys look better and have more "feel" to them.

Man you really have something against callaway but I'm kind of like that with certain club makers. I have had the opportunity to hit this club a little and it's design is certainly out of the box. However weight is nice, has good feel (firm but not bad), and the grooves are as good as any. The bounce options for lefties just don't work for me but I would look at it as much as I would look at any other wedge.

Nothing against Callaway really, I gamed the X-14s for a year, and while I never broke 100 with them, I still do not blame them for my bad play.

The main reason for my steering away from Callaway maybe is that almost everybody at our club plays Callaway that I am sick of seeing Callaway clubs and bags everywhere.

I have played most of the other wedges out there and I find that that the Callaway wedges just sit nice and are great clubs. I was just curious how these felt and if the grooves were noticably different. Currently playing with the Callaway X-tours and not sure I necessarily want to switch if they aren't much better.

I appreciate your opinion on Callaway, but as you can see I am pretty set on their clubs.

Hi, the press release said they have the Mack Daddy grooves if this is the case, then they just can't be bad. In the last 20 months I have had 4 full sets of wedges, the first were Callaway X Forged, I loved them, the 60 deg with the Mack Daddy Grooves is an awesome club. When they said that the grooves wuld be outlawed, I got anohter set of Vokey spin milled to put away, I played them a couple of rounds and they were certainly nice clubs, no issues, just preferred the Callaways, so soold the Vokey's, went to get some more Callaway's (I was in the USA, I am an Aussie...clubs are so cheap in USA :)) anyway, they did not have the X Forged in stock, the guy talked me into the Taylormade wedges with the 'Z' grooves, I plain did not like these, just did not like the way they sat, I sold them to a mate for $200 Aussie and recently bought a set of Mizuno MP T -10 wedges currently playing these and like them a lot. To be brutally honest, none of these wedges appeal to me like the Callaway X Forged and NOTHING spins like the Mack Daddy grooves, mind u as new they will eat balls like you would never believe, they actually shred pieces off like a cheese grater...if you want control and the ability to be able to spin the ball, then Mack Daddy is for you. Gotta admit, I was disappointed when the Jaws wedges appeared, cause I had just received my Mizuno's. At this stage, I intend to keep the Mizuno's, but If I wa sa betting man, Id say the 60 Deg Mack Daddy will reappear in my bag at some stage.

I understand that everyone has their opinions on the type of wedge they play and I am sure you all have your reasons why. I am just interested in knowing if anyone has put them in their bag, and how they like them.

I am sure there are a ton of threads on this forum that would be more appropriate for posts regarding which wedge you prefer.

THanks!

I have heard the Mac Daddy grooves are good. The Callaway wedges I currently play do not have those types of grooves, so I am a little anxious to see the difference.

Quinn07,

I play the Callaway X-Forged SW. It works well out of the trap, and I also use it to get a one-hoppers out of shaggy greenside rough. (Note: I carry no LW)

My 56.14 works find for how I use it. My AW is 50.11, and feels klunky and I have trouble getting consistent distance. My 45.07 PW works just fine.

Both Callaway X-Tour and Forged wedges mostly have most bounce angles above 10º. Do you get clean shots with the 52 and 60?

Quinn07,

I don't have a problem with the bounce on the wedges with the C-grind. It allows you to manipulate the club to hit the shots you need. My wedge play is normally my strongest part of my game.

I have had quite a bit of experience with the X-Tour and X-Forged wedges. Both are very good wedges from my experience. I haven't tried the Jaws wedges but would think they would be fairly similar. The MD grooves spin more than any other wedge out there now, pretty incredible. I found the X-Forged and X-Tour wedges to be noticeably more durable than any other wedge and able to maintain a good spin rate after a lot of practice. The Spin Milled lost their spin much much quicker, as do the Cleveland wedges. The X-Forged and X-Tour were VERY hard on golf balls and are a little tougher to hit consistently than the Cleveland wedges and have a shape that isn't as nice as the Vokey Spin Milled (some might like the Cally shape better). The Jaws should be good wedges but also check out the Vokey SM, Cleveland CG's, Nike VR, and Mizuno NP-T 10 wedges for comparison. I suspect the Jaws wedges will be slightly less forgiving than the Cleveland wedges (to me the Cleveland wedges are the easiest to hit), will create more spin than most any other wedge (MD grooves), have the most durable face, and the hardest on golf balls.

I have the same problem, so if you considered the overall spin, how long the spin lasts, feel and sole grind's effects, which is better?

old 2009 vokey or Jaws?

also new CC 2010 Vokeys or Jaws?

    • When I am feverish and have the flu or flu like symptoms my concentration level and patience goes as close to zero as possible.  However, a head cold with no muscle aches and I can make it through.  About 20 years back I hurt my right knee over swinging on the range (turned out to be a torn meniscus) but I was determined to play.  I could put very little weight on my right side and my follow through had a step forward like Gary Player.  I played an excellent round (for me) and although I did not crush the ball I stayed in the fairway on almost every shot.  Needless to say I played no golf for the next 8 weeks to let the tear heal. Great round by the way!
    • So just wondering......do ALL sets of tees have slope and Course ratings? Or would you still keep that to a select few tees?
    • Being a member somewhere?  I'd hate that, variety is what makes this game so much more satisfying.  That said, if I have the chance to just get in a quick weekday round, or am stuck at home and suddenly feel like I want to play, I tend to go to one of 5 courses between 20 and 30 minutes away. I've decided on and driven on the same day even as much as 4 hours there and 4 hours back just to get a round in somewhere I'm interested in.
    • There only one course (Cascades, a full-length 9 hole course that is part of Crystal Springs) in my area that has "green" tees which are for juniors, novices, or people that just cannot drive the ball more than 160-170. The LongLeaf system sounds great and I believe it could be done with a minimum of investment but I do not see it happening with the exception of resort courses (which is where the green tees are in my region).  Why?  My guess is that course operators look at it as more on-going maintenance in addition to an initial investment.  I believe it would be worth it by bringing out more golfers while keeping up with the pace of play. 
    • Congrats on a great round, especially when suffering with the flu. I am on day 6 with the flu (diagnosed), and now know that death is probably not a bad thing.  I put down a 40' X 80' yard full of sod by myself. I was spent. Putting it down was not too bad, but I had to carry each piece from the font yard. I was maybe 35 at the time.  I had just sat down to admire my work with my favorite beverage in hand. My phone rang, and it was a good friend calling saying they needed a short stop for their men's soft ball team. I tried every excuse I could muster to not go. His friendship finaly got me to the field, which is when I found it was double header.  Long story short, l played as perfect a two games as one could ask for. No errors. Turned several double plays. Went 10 for 10 batting, with  4 of those going over the LF fence.  Spent the next couple of days in major muscle pain.
