Review of Golf Wedges

The mid season update of Review and Comparison of Golf Wedges has been completed. A couple of sets that were being discontinued have been removed from the comparison. As you will see, the Dynacraft DMC forged wedges narrowly beat out the Acer XB wedges. In our comparison, we do not compare wedges that are part of a complete set. We only compare makes/models that are available as individual wedges only or as sets of wedges.

Depends on how much you practice. If you only play on weekends, then it’s best to stay with conventional lofts ranging from 46º to 56º. However; if you can practice a couple of times a week in addition to playing a round of golf, then feel free to use the 60º, 64º or 68º lob wedges. If you can pull a flop shot with the ultra lob wedges, you will save a couple of shots per round besides being spectacular. You can do that with some consistency if you  practice regularly as that is what these difficult shots require. Flop shots while spectacular are difficult and require a lot of practice. Also look into zero bounce wedges. If the course where you play has elevated greens, quite often your shot will roll off the green and drop all the way to the bottom. That area could be very dry and hard especially in hot climes like Texas. That’s where a wedge with zero bounce or 4 to 6º bounce can come in handy. The minimal bounce allows the front edge of the blade to go under the ball minimizing the chances of the club skipping off the hard ground and hitting the ball near the middle. That totally ruins the shot and you end up crisscrossing the green.

In most cases No. If you just carry a pitching wedge and a sand wedge, you will have a big gap in terms of loft and distance. Let’s say your pitching wedge is 46º and your sand wedge is 58º. That is a 12º difference. At about 3 yards per degree of loft, you end up with a 36 yard distance gap. Ideally you should have no more than a 5º difference in lofts. If you don’t have the right lofts, you will end up over swinging on some and taking partial shots at other greens. That is not a very good situation. Ideally, you should be taking full shots with your wedges at the greens. Solution: Carry a third wedge to bridge the gap between your Pitching Wedge and Sand Wedge. It’s quite often called the Gap Wedge or A Wedge.

The best hybrid golf clubs of the year

Dynacraft Avatar Evolution Hybrid Clubs Hybrid golf clubs – 3 to 9, PW, GW and SW Click for larger pictures The mid-irons progressively become narrower (as less game improvement is required) and bridge the gap between a conventional iron appearance. The scoring clubs starting with the #8 look traditional at address. The additional loft beautifully hides the hollow-body but still helps to increase the moment of inertia. The rounded toplines provide plenty of face area and raise the center of gravity enough to control the trajectory. The inclusion of three wedges provide for better course management by eliminating distance gaps. Standard black & white velvet grips. Perfect for golfers who are trying to bring consistency to their long game. For the weekend warriors who wants to improve their golf game these hybrid clubs integrate perfectly all the tools necessary to help them achieve that goal.   Every year, we do ‘Hybrid Golf Clubs Reviews‘ to make it easier for our customers to make an informed decision. We did the same this year also.   We tested the Avatar hybrid clubs the most, not because they were difficult to but because we couldn’t believe any club could help you hit so straight. It is very hard to hit a bad shot with these hybrids.   Testers used words like “incredible“, “this one is mine“, “I am keeping this one“, “ I found my hybrids” to describe the Avatar Evolution.   The most forgiving of all hybrids we tested. It has the [Read More …]
