It has been way too long since I replaced my wedges. Was playing Cleveland cg14's for years and years...with the groove change, I figured they still had more bite than what is now "conforming". Boy, was I wrong!

I was unable to find a 52, 56, and 60, but got the latter two and have had the joy of hitting these wedges. Talk about bounce and stop!  Too be clear, I have only spun a few balls back in my life - when the green was tilted toward me and dry and short! However, these wedges are freakin' amazing. I suspect that they don't play much different than the Rotex wedges, or many other new wedges, but they have reinvigorated my desire to pull off very difficult shots. And, after just a couple rounds, they have saved me several strokes.

So, the 52 is shipping from Amazon as no pro shop or big box store in the Mid-Michigan area had one - ? - which seems strange to me.

My question to you guys is simply this, "Have you noticed a similar change in your shot-making ability when you replaced your wedges?"

I just purchased a new to me 54 wedge and I notice a big difference in my shots, a much better difference. I can sweep the ball out of trap now and making more accurate shots around the green. Par 3 165 yards yesterday, I pushed it right into a grove of cedars from the tee, pin high about 20 yards off the green. I used my 54 and pitched from the trees, hit the green and sank a 25ft putt....a great par 3.

How are you finding these now? I'm looking at getting new wedges and have been very interested in the Mack Daddy's.

    • I know four that have died, two in the last 10 days. How many people do you know that have had small pox? Polio?  The answer is none because we’ve eliminated it with vaccines. People survived those diseases too, but it killed millions. 
    • Multiple reasons. There are people who cannot get vaccinated for medical reasons. Should those unable to be vaccinated be put at risk involuntarily? The vaccine is not approved for children less than 12 years old. Should kids be put at risk involuntarily? The vaccine is not 100% effective. Should those who get vaccinated but do not develop immunity be put at risk involuntarily?
    • Day 38 (5/12/21) - Did the "Justin Rose Drill" without a ball, about 10-reps each with Driver, 7i and 9w. Then did the "Forehead on Wall" drill for several reps to work on steady head. 
    • It is when a large number of people continue to repeat nonsense that can endanger the lives of others.  Opinions are about tastes and preferences, not clearly provable facts. If someone said that they wouldn't waste their time protecting their eyes when looking at an eclipse, I'd say they were stupid but entitled to do it. If, on the other hand, they said that in their opinion, eye protection was unnecessary when looking at an eclipse, I would absolutely not respect that "opinion". Because it isn't actually an opinion. It's a ridiculously ignorant statement. The problem with “I’m entitled to my opinion” is that, all too often, it’s used to shelter beliefs that should have been abandoned. It becomes shorthand for “I can say or think whatever I like” – and by extension, continuing to argue is somehow disrespectful. And this attitude feeds, I suggest, into the false equivalence between experts and non-experts that is an increasingly pernicious feature of our public discourse. .......if ‘entitled to an opinion’ means ‘entitled to have your views treated as serious candidates for the truth’ then it’s pretty clearly false. And this too is a distinction that tends to get blurred. Patrick Stokes
