For those of you all that have hit or had both these wedges, which do you prefer more and why? I am in the market for picking up both a 50 and 56 degree and wanted to know if you all felt one may have better feel, forgiveness or just all around better. I am not a fan of the way the latest (s18) wedge looks and will def be buying one of these. Thanks in advance for the input

I've just sold the S5's and have the T7's for sale in the BST, but.............the T7's are slightly smaller and felt softer but my T7's are the Japanese versions. Both went where you aimed. Couldn't tell if either were more forgiving really. T7's look better. Tested the S18's but preferred the T7's easily. S5/S18 were/are too big looking at address for me.

I own the S5 in 54 and 58 and have tried the T7. I like the look and shape of the T7 much better with the straighter leading edge and very little offset but the feel was much better for me with the S5.

If you don't like the S18 then its unlikely you'll like the S5, both slightly oversize with more of a rounded profile.  I have S5 in 51 and 58.  Would prefer the shape of the S7 but appreciate marginally larger profile of the S5, although I doubt its any more forgiving.  Prefer the S5 because I don't like the whole boron thing, although I'm sure I wouldn't notice the slightly firmer feel after the first couple of days.  Benefit of going S7/S18 is the custom options, don't think there are any more custom orders on S5.

I got the T7's.

Cold, dead, hands, yada, yada, yada.
Everything has its drawbacks, as the man said when his mother-in-law died, and they came down upon him for the funeral expenses.
