Bridgestone Tour B XW-1
Our Review:Despite offering just six lofts and one sole grind, this wedge family checks the important boxes of feel and spin. The forged carbon-steel construction and centered weight pad make center strikes feel sweeter. As for spin, sure, the grooves have been optimized to USGA limits, but what's improved from past Bridgestone designs are the flat areas between the grooves. Rather than milled with randomized swirls or etched-in lines, a distinct pattern of four mini-grooves adds extra friction.
Specs: 6 options (50-60 degrees)
