I have the 56* Z TP Smoke.....and I know a lot of people on here don't like them, but mine is my favorite club in my bag (beside my Scotty). I have an original RAC 60* that I need to replace with the Z.

i have a 52* rac wedge that i got from dick's last year. to me it is far too light compared to most other wedges. not bad on distance, spin is average and the feel is ok not anything special. i threw a little lead tape on mine and its good now.

I got a 52* last summer from Dicks for $60. When I took it in to be re-gripped a week ago the guy who did the re-gripping told me they were going to be on sale for 2/$100. Guess he wasn't lying.

I like mine, but my wedge experience is not very varied. It does feel a little light compared to the other wedges I've tried, but I personally like that. When I did my online research last summer before buying mine, everyone I could find reviewed the TP very well; the normal RAC was also reviewed fairly decently.

My only complaint is that the 8* of bounce doesn't feel very prevalent. It's very easy to dig it into the dirt.

I tried the RAC a few months ago when I bought my Tour Preferred irons, they felt a bit on the light side. In our country most bunkers are of heavy sand so a slightly heavier wedges is the way to go. I went for a pair of the Wilson Staff TW9 ..... 52* / 8 bounce and 56* / 12 bounce and I use the 52*/8 around the green, rough and really hard and/or wet sand and the 56*/12 for the softer sand.

The plain RAC wedges aren't very good, but the RAC TP's (Y=cutter grooves) are excellent. I've used both. It didn't take me long to replace the RAC with a TP.
Haven't tried the Z-cutter grooves yet. Ready for new ones though, as mine are a couple years old; Looking for feedback on the new, replaceable face versions. If they perform as well as the Y grooves they'll have a winner given you won't need to replace the whole club when the face wears out.

I would suggest going to the golf shops and just looking around. Cleveland CG12 and CG14 models are selling at about $89, CG10s for less. Certain Callaway X-Forged and X-Tour wedges can be had for $69, along with some of the Mizuno wedges from a couple years ago. (Sorry I can't remember the model, but I don't follow Mizuno much).

    • Day 38 (03 Aug 21) - Jumped outside around mid-day just before the afternoon rain was to start to work on the left hand in the grip.  Been way too weak with the left hand of late, seeing too many pushes right.  Worked with the PW, making sure I had a stronger grip in hand before 1/2 swings with the ball.  Know it is not what I have been doing as it was somewhat foreign feeling.    Next step - once it stops raining (forecast has that early next week)  is to take it the range and work more there where I can work on full swings. 
    • I'll let you know how it is next week
    • Regatta Bay is on my list to play next. Don't think you can go wrong with that choice.   Links Sandestin was tight. Luckily my 4-hybrid was flying straight off the tee that day. I think I hit driver on only 2 holes. 
    • I use it all the time. I have two a purple dry erase markers in my bag at all times. (Not sure why I chose purple?) It also helps with strike location and it's a lot less sloppy than spraying foot spray on your club face. I use it on range balls too. By the time the ball stops rolling the dry erase has rubbed off, so the range guys don't mind at all. 
    • Does dry erase marker transfer from the ball to the club well? I’ve drawn on my clubface with dry erase marker and I don’t recall it ending up on the ball. I’m not trying to be a smartass, I’m asking because I don’t know. I’ve always done lie angle tests with a sharpie.
