I have been using some el cheapo Ram FX wedges for a couple of years. My son started playing a few years ago and I had plenty of sets of irons lying around but no wedges that I was willing to let him use so I logged on to ebay and bought him a set of them, when they turned up I gave them to him without even looking at them.

A few weeks later I was playing with him and I was showing him how to play a little lob shot over a bunker and I grabbed his new 60* wedge and thought "hey - I like the shape of this thing" and it worked well. A few holes later we were about 70 yards out from the green and I was showing him how to play a little knock down and again I grabbed one of his new wedges, this time the 55* and again I liked the looked of it.

As soon as I got home I went on to ebay and grabbed myself a set of three, I think they cost me all of about $30. When they turned up I stuck DG S300's in them, cut them to length, put on some decent grips and added lead tape to get them to what I am used to swingweight wise and they've been in the bag ever since. I currently use the 55* and the 60* bent to 58* and I love them. The best thing is they are a softish stainless steel instead of chromed carbon steel so they are wearing very well, I'd have worn out a Vokey (I used them for ages) by now for sure. I've now got a spare set out in the garage in case I lose one of my current ones or if I wear one out too badly.

Once I find something I like and trust I like to use it until it's completely worn out, it's a pain in the arse to have to keep replacing wedges. The price doesn't bother me, it's the getting used to it and trusting it, by the time I am confident in a wedge it's often time for it to go in to the rubbish bin!

I also have a few old Wilson Sandy Andy's I have changed the sole grind on that I will use sometimes at courses that have very soft - deep sand. My current gap wedge is an ancient Cobra Phil Rodgers 52*, I have been using it for about 3 years now and have used exact versions of the same club as my gap wedge for about 20 years. I currently have two more of them in almost new condition sitting in the garage waiting to replace the current one when it wears out.

Bought the Eidolon 52, 56 & 60 deg last summer.

They have U-grooves and spin-milled faces, and a V-sole system which allows each wedge to "become" another loft when opened slightly - like Ping is doing as well.

The wedges perform terrifically, although I have noticed a lot of wear on the face of the 60deg - something I reckon isn't so great for wedges less than a year old BUT I haven't been able to compare this wear to any other spin-milled wedges, so a negative vote would be unfair at this stage.

    • On behalf of new golfers everywhere: For the love of God, DON'T GIVE UNSOLICTED SWING ADVICE.  I've already got TWO golf coaches (virtual/in-person) and I'm working on my swing (it's new)... but I'm working on the lessons the PROS gave me.  So, unless your name is Hank Haney (or Rudy) -- STFU! 
    • Day 5:  Last night, went to the range at twilight...  big thing I learned: if you can't see where the ball is going, you're gonna get minimal feedback. 😕
    • Day 46: Still feeling a bit lost with my priority piece, so spent time today in front of patio door "mirror" rehearsing experimental feels to help me achieve the correct motion since the initial feel I had doesn't seem to do it anymore. Seemed to find a few things that worked, so later this evening I hit some balls using these thoughts/feels. Too dark to record swings, but I used impact tape to map ball striking and it was mostly around centerface again, with misses toward the toe. Still a little concerned that start line is center or a bit left (I would prefer start line to be center or a bit right) because my typical shot is a draw. I could also be judging the start line incorrectly because my net/mat alignment is a little off kilter at the moment as I have moved it to a new location in the yard temporarily.
    • I'm 64 and hitting the ball better than ever. What did I do? Place extra emphasis on improving my technique. Better technique can really compensate for loss of strength
    • Thanks!  I'm in!
