Wedge setup -Callaway X Forged or Jaws CC?

8 posts in this topic

I am looking to replace my 2009 Vokey Oil Can wedges as I do not like the bounce/weighting on them.  I recently just purchased the Callaway X-Forged 60* vintage wedge and am looking to replace my 52* & 56*.  I hear that the X forged spins a lot  which is great for my LW but I'm not sure if I want to be peeling back shots with my sand & gap wedges.  Should I go with the CC grooves in the Jaws wedges or Mack Daddys?  Any insight would be appreciated.

Between those two I would go with the Mack Daddy wedges.  Here's our review

i have the mac daddy 2 56* and 60* wedge. the only issue i have with them is spin. they spin like crazy. if i play a full 56* (115 yards) it'll roll back to only about 105 on a soft green or a good back to front slope. i do love the spin out of bunkers tho haha. if you do get the mac 2 then either learn to play the spin or if you don't want the spin take a 3/4 swing with a 9 iron or pw to reduce it.

I am thinking of getting some used Callaway X-Forged wedges.  I prefer square grooves versus the new conforming grooves even though I've heard the mack Daddy 2 grooves are quite close to them.  Like you, my main concern is too much backspin on full shots with my 52 & 56 but I am thinking the used grooves could help with that.

I am thinking of getting some used Callaway X-Forged wedges. ...

I got an almost new Calla X-Forged (circa 2008) about three years ago. Just started using it this summer.

It sports 56.15, C-Grind with original MD grooves. On partial wedge shots off a non-shaggy lie I often get it hit and stop  - no back up, it just hits, pops up 6 inches, and stops where it landed.

You would need to test out the wedge(s) and see how they work. The type of ball you play, and your swing motion/attack angle will influence spin.

Note on Jaws CC:

This summer, I came across two different stores which had a variety of Jaws CC wedges in stock. Don't know if they survived the fall sales or not.

For some reason, Sports Authority store in our area get a few Jaws on occasion.

    • https://www.gamegolf.com/player/bweiss711/round/1137850 A couple of firsts in this round.  It was my first round using the GG tags, and it was also my first round ever under 100.  If you want to see what 18 holes looks like when you have no clue where the ball is going off the tee and have no short game at all to speak of.... check out this round!
    • I think the point is, if the victim of a non-violent theft decides to use violence against the thief well after the crime was committed, he opens himself up to all kinds of trouble. Obviously it's different if someone gets jumped or car-jacked and the criminal is the first one to threaten or use violence. I'm not sure how pepper spray is classified in terms of being a weapon or not but I imagine using it could legally be considered assault in a situation like this.  
    • Well, I did it!  Been taking hacks at golf courses for 20 years, started actually practicing 7 weeks ago, and I finally mother-effing broke 100 yesterday.  Shot 96 at a course I had only played one time before about 8 years ago. This was easily the most consistent I've ever hit the ball into the greens (8 GIRs) and my driving was as good as it has been all season.  The biggest thing with the driver was deciding to stop trying to be perfect on the tee.  Meaning, I wasn't concerning myself with how I thought I should be ideally hitting the club, instead, I just hit it the way I naturally hit it right now, played the "power fade" aimed out over the left side of the fairway, and mostly kept it in play.  I was still inconsistent off the tee with a few pop ups and pulled shots, but for the most part, I stayed out of trouble. The even better news is that I shot 96 and my short game was terrible. I had a couple duffs in sand traps and from the rough around the greens.  Plus, of my 8 GIRs, I 3-putted 5 of them and it wasn't always the lag putt that was the problem.  I missed a few 3 footers that you just can't miss.  So, I've still got plenty of strokes to remove from my score once I actually start to work on shots around the green.  To this point, all of my practice has focused full swings with the irons and driver.  So, needless to say, I'm really excited about this.  I think i'm just going to play the rest of the season with the same practice focus.  Might be time to start a "member swing" thread for my driver.  And in the off-season, the focus will shift to the short game. Unfortunately, it might be a few weeks before I'm able to get out for 18 again, but I can't wait to get out there and try to do this again.
    • The incident in the OP doesn't sway my opinion on gun control one way or the other. Isolated incident in which some angry, old white dude should lose his right to carry indefinitely, but nothing that makes me believe that every gun carrier needs to be affected or restricted due to this incident. The John Wayne comments from some of y'all however, do make me think that gun laws need to be seriously revisited. The fact that some of you...ahem...more extreme individuals are actually permitted to carry is frightening indeed. And before there is an uproar, let me be clear that I have no issue with most of you who carry as your comments seemed to be well balanced and rational. Some others...not so much. It's seems pretty obvious to me that your right to bear arms should be dependant upon on your ability to not lose your shit when you're pissed off.
