In the market for new wedges and the same ole same ole vokey, 588's and cally's are not doing anything for me.

Has anybody put in play the TW7 by Wilson??

I've always felt Wilson Staff makes great wedges.
My "money club" is still my Tw5 50* Gap wedge. Still play an old R-90 too.
Hit the Tw7 at a demo day. Very nice, soft feel, grabs the ball - head looked a bit smaller than the Tw5.

Won a set last year in some contest or another...really like them.  Very grabby, as was said above.

That said, I don't have much of a pedigree to review wedges...I have limited experience in the "newer" wedges, beyond some Hogans that I tried out thanks to a friend's generosity.

I think the fact Harrington uses them is endorsement enough. He is extremely pernickety with his clubs, particularly wedges, so for him to move to them from Vokey SM's (I think) shows they are good kit.

That's was my thought emc.
Seems to very particular regarding such things.  Doesn't he wrap his grips something odd and rib in a certain spot on his victory grips?  I have seen some of his wedge shots with them and he SPINS the sucker!

Just as a quick "beware" for those interested in these wedges, I purchased the 52 (which I had bent to 50), the 54 and 60 and each of them are 2 degrees upright.  So definitely have them checked out before you buy them.  

This said they are very solid wedges and I love the weight of them.  I was a little disappointed in the "bite" of them though.  I feel like my old Spin Milled Vokeys had significantly more bite than the Tw7s.  

I'm also not really thrilled with how the finish is holding up, or isn't holding up as the case may be.  I can take some pictures if anyone wants to see them, but if you saw my wedges you would never have thought that they have only been used for 6 rounds or so.

In the end I'm satisfied with them, but I think that when I replace my wedges next season I may go back to the Vokey SMs.

If you like the Tw7 you could also give the Wilson Fw6 a try while they are still available, they are forged, fairly heavy (which I like and gives stability), have the perfect shape for me, look and work great from both the turf and sand. Awesome wedges.

Thanks for the suggestion.  I may give them a shot.

Have you hit the Vokey SMs?  If so, can you give a brief comparison?

Pelts35,
I have had all of the spin milled's and personally did not like them.  Not the biggest Titleist fan althought they definetely spin.  Interested in a wedge that bite's hard but that has some control.  Seems with the SM's I would spin everything, not just bite and stop.  Sure it could be the ball who knows....

How are the Ci6's??

Post some pics if you dont't mind of the TW7's..

ETN,

For whatever reason I am unable to upload the pictures at the moment.  I'll try again later or on another computer.

I may have a brand new Wilson Staff Tw5 56* SW for sale by the end of the week. I bought it online and now I think I want to go a different route. If anyone is interested let me know.
