2019 TaylorMade Hi-Toe Big Foot wedge: New game-improvement wedge featuring a super wide sole

Published

on

TaylorMade has announced the 2019 TaylorMade Hi-Toe Big Foot wedge—a game-improvement option which joins the TaylorMade Hi-Toe wedge family.

The Hi-Toe Big Foot wedges offer an asymmetric C-Grind that is both flatter and has a wider sole at 32mm (compared to traditional wedges which have a sole width of 26mm), which combined with an anti-dig leading edge with maximum bounce of 15 degrees, aims to enhance playability and ease of use from the sand and rough.

Along with the wider middle, the leading edge of the 2019 TaylorMade Hi-Toe Big Foot wedge is blunter, with a beveled leading edge radius with added bounce towards the toe apex which seeks to help golfers who have an outside-in swing path and a tendency for the strike location to be towards the toe.

The trailing edge of the Big Foot wedge is also designed to offer relief with a slight heel side reduction to help keep the leading edge low alongside allowing for versatility.

Speaking on the new Hi-Toe Big Foot, Bill Price, Senior Director of Product Creation, Putters & Wedges, stated

“We have one of the best wedge line-ups on the market but realized that there was still one golfer out there that wasn’t catered for, with Big Foot we now have a game improvement wedge that’s easier to play regardless of course conditions, especially for those who struggle out of bunkers. The Hi-Toe Family of wedges now cover every aspect of the game; versatility, playability and game improvement.”

The new addition features deep CG pockets, which along with allowing engineers to maximize the width of the sole, are designed to increase spin, flight control and allow for mass to be redistributed to the sole.

Like the rest of the Hi-Toe family, the new wedge from TaylorMade features an increased toe height upwards of 5mm in a bid to provide a higher center of gravity for lower launch and more spin. Big Foot’s full-face scoring lines also aim to offer consistent ball contact out of the rough and to help increase spin on off-center strikes.

TaylorMade Hi-Toe Big Foot wedges come in 58 and 60-degree lofts (RH only) and come equipped with a KBS Hi-REV 2.0 115g (steel) or UST Recoil w/SmacWrap 65g (graphite) shaft with a Golf PrideTour Velvet burgundy 360 GEC grip.

The new wedges will be available at retail from September 6 and have an MRSP of $169.99.

Today from the Forums: “Best 54/56-degree wedge for a sweeper?”

Published

on

Today from the Forums we take a look at 54 and 56-degree wedges which are effective on full shots from tight lies. WRXer, 10of14, is a sweeper of the ball and has reached out to fellow members who have been giving their suggestions in our forum.

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.

  • dhen9: “M grind or ES Glide 2.0.”
  • PowerCobra98: “Callaway MD4 or MD5 with the C Grind.”
  • bsb70x7: “I am a sweeper and a low bounce player. I play Vokey 54 with 10* of bounce (as my highest bounce). You may want to go with 8* of bounce if you use your Lob wedge in the sand.”
  • NYCGolfNut: “I’m the same. M grind Vokey – 8 deg bounce, heel and toe relief. Works great.”

Today from the Forums: “Searching for a 5-wood”

Published

on

Today from the Forums we take a look at 5-woods, with WRXer, RAMDAN, on the hunt for a new addition to his bag. Our members discuss the options on the market and give their take on the best models from their experiences.

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.

  • Golf64: “Cobra F8 and 9s are still out there, and the new SZ is nice too. I prefer Ping, love the look and feel and easy to get in the air!!”
  • KGilma: “I just replaced my F6 baffler with the F9. It is a definite upgrade. I still have the F6 if you’re interested.”
  • bjh1: “Recently got an Epic Flash 5 wood (regular, not sub-zero), and I am loving it! Can’t go wrong sticking with the Callaway.”
  • jah7838: “I agree with those mentioning the Baffler and the other various Cobra offerings. F8+ and F9 Tour are really good clubs. I just got the F9 Tour 3 wood, and it’s really easy to elevate with the right shaft. I still have my Baffler that I’m going to mess around with as my 5 wood. I was using it as my 4 wood for last season, and really liked it, but I found a good deal on a like-new F9 Tour 3 wood that I couldn’t pass up. The issue I’m going to have with the Baffler as my 5 wood is that I’ve had my Adams 19* XTD Super Hybrid that it’s going to have to beat out. I’ve had that club for so long now, and I’m going to have a hard time not keeping that one in the bag. It’s not a knock on the Baffler; it’s just how much I trust the XTD.”
  • AG12: “I just was given a PING G410 5W to try, and I think it’s the easiest FW to elevate and just wants to go straight. I think j the Tour 75 shaft that PING offers is a great shaft as well. Worth a look if you’re in the market.”
