Can anybody give me an honest comparison of both. Is the RM-22 worth the extra $90 per club?

I haven't hit the 21, but I have tested the 22 out. Loved it so much I bought it on the spot! You really need to find a store that has both of them and test if you can.

The RM-21's can be had for 95 bucks if the lofts and bounce work for you.  The shaft options don't work for me so I would need to factor in the shaft replacement costs
before I would jump on them.

Those are fantastic looking and Fourteen is owned by Globeride (Daiwa) which also owns OnOff so I imagine they are forged by Endo as well so
they should be as good as it gets as far as feel and tolerances.

I prefer the sole grind of the RM-12 58/8.  It's a C grind like the Vokey M grind.  I just didn't care for the 58/8 RM-21.  It's a wider sole and it doesn't work for me as well.  I have an RM-22 58/8 but haven't tried it yet.

Just to try and shed some light on the RM-21 Vs. RM-22 Question.

The RM-22 features our delta sole grind as an option, this has a very aggressive heel relief and a different reverse muscle structure. The cutting edge muscle takes the missing weight from the heel and distributes that mass (and then some) into the upper portion of the blade. This creates a more evenly distributed reverse muscle design, and from what we've seen creates a more consistent performance from a verity of lies.

I just picked up 3 RM-21 wedges, 2 with the NS Pro shaft and 1 with the DG400. Hit them a bit into my net but won't get to play them until Saturday morning. Liked the feel, anxious to get them on the course.

Have some Recoil Prototype wedge shafts I was considering putting in my RTX 3.0s, but think I'll wait and see which wedges I prefer.

First round with my RM-21 wedges this morning--heavy rain the past few days made for a sloppy course. I'm already addicted to the feel of these wedges though!

Anyone try the chrome and black in the rm-21? I prefer the look of the chrome but can pick up a black. Is the black not plated so will rust? Is there a feel difference between the two? Does the black wear away quickly?

I have the black rm 22; I don't know if it will rust and have only played 10-12 rounds with it, but at this point it's black finish is showing almost no wear. In contrast my black finish RTX wedges showed wear after 1-2 rounds.....

It will rust if the black is removed. Doesnt wear away that quickly though. Can be removed if you like.
