I have 4-Yururi Tour wedges (conf) 48,52,56,60 w/kbs $ that
replaced my 29 pw and MP R12ís and now Iím seriously thinking about switching to the PDG or Flat Backs

Was wondering if anyone who has used both can tell me the differences/opinions of the 2

PDG have similar lofts as the 29ís but what about offset?
I would prefer less.

Topline of both compared to the 29ís and overall size?
I would prefer smaller.

Feel?
And anything else I might be missing?

Or Kyoei MBís?

Thanks
AL

I didnít like the black coating on the PDGs. It seemed to take away from the feel that the raw Flatbacks offered. The PDG shape is quite good. The Kyoei MBs are Flatbacks minus the offset plus a sole grind. The Kyoeis are my favorite here.

Thanks for the reply
Did more digging came across your posts on TSG and with the feedback from others has made this decision an easy one.

Good Job
Those look bad a$$
Howís the offset on the shorter irons?
Only issue I have withe Kyoei MB is that there
isnít a 3i offered in a set.
Iím going back and forth between the Kyoei and the 2010ís

I have been impressed with the durability of the black ox finish. I only dipped them once about a dozen rounds ago. Equal number of range sessions. I’m only refilling them now because I decided I don’t want any paint fill. I Want them all black.
