Our Review:

The big changes in Wilson’s wedges can be measured in the small space occupied by the diameter of a typical fishing line. That’s how much closer the spacing is on the new groove pattern compared to its predecessor. By moving the grooves closer by only .017 inches, more milled scoring lines contact the ball during a typical wedge impact. Engaging more grooves provides more opportunity to impart spin, and that’s especially useful on half-wedge shots that don’t fully compress the ball. Speaking of grooves, the larger Staff Model HT stretches its grooves all the way across the face. This provides more contact points, particularly on open-face shots. The lineup also adds a new sole design for the standard shape that allows for more relief on the trailing edge and heel of the sole. Read More>>

Player Comments
  • mid

    Good all-around performer. Easy to open up and hit off tight lies. Soft feel yet good feedback on poorly struck shots.

  • high

    A solid performer. I could get ample spin from bump and runs, flops, and from longer distances.
