callaway x forged vs jaws wedges

Cally X Forged-U groove
Jaws- V groove
Other than that I know nothing.
They both have the exact same Mack Daddy grooves. Nobody is making V groove wedges yet except for the Vokey CoC wedges.

For some reason the jaws are cheaper than the x forged over here in the uk, so if they are newer and perform the same or better they must be the ones to go for right?

Something I just posted in another thread which might be helpful here too.
I just bought an X-forged with 11 degrees of bounce. The leading edge sits higher than the Jaws wedge that has 13 degrees of bounce. The Jaws has a C grind with a narrow sole that greatly reduces effective bounce.
Bounce angle is only one third of the equation when trying to determine effective bounce. The other two variables are sole width and sole grind.
How far the leading edge sits off the ground is the first thing you want to look at to determine effective bounce. How much surface area that comes into contact with the ground is the second thing you want to look at.
Like everything else in the golf industry there is no standard way to measure bounce angle either. One company's 13 might be another companies 11.
I hope this helps people from getting too hung up on numbers.

The width of the sole has just as much to do with how high the leading edge sits than with the angle of the bounce.
I can't stress enough that its about effective bounce and not some arbitrary angle number stamped on the club.

I could really tell no difference in the two, and the bounce on the Jaws wedges is just number.
Both are good wedges, and I would be glad to play with either set.

At first glance, the bounce on the Jaws wedges seem very high (16* on some, which is at the high end of the Vokey or Cleveland offerings).
However, the EFFECTIVE bounce on JAWS wedges are much lower, given the C-Grind. By design, it throws the measure off.
It's almost as if the JAWS wedges should be considered variable bounce, or whatever, as that's one of the thoughts behind the grind design.
This based on a couple of discussions with the pro at the store, and independently verified through the online chat feature with the guys at shop.callaway.com.
Any articles you read / google for 'bounce' are written from the perspective that doesn't incorporate the c-grind - which is a HUGE part of the JAWS design.
