Build pics of prototype wedges by Joe Kwok (50, 55 and 60).  Was unsure about the "Green Edition" Modus shafts as its a bit out there for me but decided to give them a try anyway.  Currently gaming Fourteen RM-21 and RM-22's, lets see which set wins out.

Should have them in-hand on Monday and will post more pics.

They made those Modus wedge shafts in limited quantities for the Masters tournament.  They’ve done other special color schemes as well.

Not exactly cheap.  He's been messing around with building his own wedges for awhile.  Once he told me there were some blanks left over it took less than week.

Beautiful, love how you can see the grind has actually been ground away from the wedge. Is the face milling coarser on the 60 or is it just the pics making it look that way? Guy does some awesome work!

Cannot beat a joe Kwok wedge set!

Joe’s hand grinds are 100% customized to the player, and his personal logo hand stamping is a nice touch.

Joe is one of god’s original creatures- spectacularly talented and funny as hell!

Milling is the same on all three wedges.
