Hmm, weird. I see them. What device are you using?

2* of bounce on the 60?? You play on concrete or just really like to open the face?

Actually it's 08, but looks like 02 in the picture. Just put some new grinds on them. I will post pictures now.

Nice gear buddy - can you put up some address pics of the wedges? Keen to see how they compare with others.

Here are some pictures. (For some reason can't upload pictures at address).

48: I ground the leading edge, toe and top line of this wedge in order to square them a bit more. Then I let it sit in a saltwater bath and rust to try and remove some glare from the freshly ground areas. I also noticed a touch more offset than I prefer, so I ground down the hosel to try and take some of the offset off. I personally like how it turned out.

60: I put my preferred "P Grind" on this wedge, which is very versatile and allows me to open the face, without a lot of bounce, but then I can also square up the face and have some bounce for full shots.

How much weight did you remove by grinding? Did you put in tip weights or plan on using lead tape to adjust the SW?

I took off approx 5-7 grams on 60, 4-6 on 48/54. To be honest I didn't measure, as the heads were already light of std. So what I will probably do, is just use as much weight as I need in order to get it up to my preferred SW.

Still decided what I will use, as I haven't installed the Frequency Matched shafts in the wedges yet. Though I assume I will most likely use some sort of tip weight.
