Forum Thread of the Day: “Set gap wedge vs specialist gap wedge”

Published

on

Today’s Forum Thread of the Day comes from clemsontiger1 who asks fellow members what they feel are the advantages and disadvantages of playing a “gap wedge that matches your iron set vs a Vokey type wedge”. Our members share their thoughts on the subject, with many drawing from experience.

Here are a few posts from the thread, but make sure to check out the entire discussion and have your say at the link below.

  • kcd38: “I had a Vokey type gap wedge up until I got my i210’s. I really only used my 51-degree Vokey for full swings anyway, so the i210 U wedge gives me more forgiveness and consistency from 120 yards. I have also loved using it around the green to chip to back/uphill pin locations. The only drawback I can see is being able to rip shots back on the green, but the U wedge gives me plenty of spin to control the ball and hold greens.”
  • Albatross85: “Played a Vokey 50* for last five years and always felt like I got punished on slight mis-strikes. I recently switched to a Set GW at 50* and kept the same shaft that I play in my irons, and it’s been amazing how much more confident I am with it. Actually made an ace with it a few weeks back!”
  • Celbros: “I much prefer a set Gap Wedge. It is strictly a full-swing club for me for what it’s worth.”
  • jokerusn: “I go all the way to PW with my Vokey wedges. I like to hit 1/2, 3/4, knockdowns, pitches, sand shots, etc. with all of them and the PW in my set has a really wide sole compared to the rest of the set. I like the extra spin I get from the Vokey wedges around the green.”

Forum Thread of the Day: “Kiradech Aphibarnrat’s custom SuperStroke grips”

Published

on

Today’s Forum Thread of the Day showcases Kiradech Aphibarnrat’s custom SuperStroke grips. The shape of the grips has been given the seal of approval from WRXers who have been keenly discussing the SuperStroke creations in our forums.

Here are a few posts from the thread, but make sure to check out the entire discussion and have your say at the link below.

  • JCM96: “Love SuperStroke’s texture and feel. If they would just release their tapered grips, they’d get a stranglehold of the putter grip market.”
  • jgolf215: “Interesting shape. The colors are pretty understated for him. I would have expected a much brighter green.”
  • nova6868: “Really like the shape on those. Would definitely buy one if they were available.”
  • GoIrish17: “What’s it say? SGP1.0? I like the shape of it; I hope it comes to retail (or SuperStroke sells them through their eBay store). It looks like a grip I’d like to try.”

SeeMore Putter

Today’s Forum Thread of the Day showcases an array of new SeeMore putters. The new flat-sticks from SeeMore have been a hot topic for discussion amongst our members, with the brand’s plumber neck additions garnering plenty of reaction.

For lots more photos, check out the full forum thread here.

Here are a few posts from the thread, but make sure to check out the entire discussion and have your say on the new putters at the link below.

  • bunta: “The fact that they put the alignment line on the topline of the Ancers makes me feel obligated to give them a try.”
  • poppman2142: “So the plumbers going into the head at such a severe angle is making them face-balanced I assume? I guess I would prefer the hosel to angle towards the center of the face and have the shaft angle back where it enters the hosel, so I don’t see the entire length of the hosel at address to make it face balanced. To each their own I guess!”
  • MaineMariner: “Those are some very interesting and unique hosels. Gotta hand it to SeeMore, they sure are innovative. I could definitely see myself grabbing that plumber’s neck notchback.”
