The photos I've seen of the 2012 catalog look like finsihes are copper and slate. Will there be a satin?

No the leadingedgeof the wedge is not that sharp...
Yes the copper is just a finish that masks a raw new carbon steel body... I have hit this finish and think it is spectacular!
It comes in 2 finishes... Copper and what I would describe as a nickel finish. Non rust and no shine, just straight up nice!
The jaws will still be in line. Jaws wedges have a softer feel with I higher launch and a bit more offset designed for the regular player. The pros will play the new forged wedges that are more firm and aggressive. The tear drop design is less rounded and has a great appearance that is more attractive to competitive players.
They look sweet in hand as they best should coming from the best wedge designer in golf... Roger Cleveland! (who works for Callaway now in case youdidnt know)

More grooves = more spin right? I wonder how the spin compares to the old MacDaddy grooves?

That sole grind gives me the heebie jeebies though, it looks like there is very little bounce and a sharp leading edge, unless the pics are deceiving ....... I would be curious to know what the standard grinds are and bounces etc.

I'm gonna have clubs from almost every OEM next year in the bag. I used to be anal and try to use only one brand, like I was a pro being paid for loyalty and marketing. Boy was I stupid, use whatever works. TM driver, Clev. 4wood, Adams hybird, Nike irons coming soon, Cally wedges and primarily an Odyssey putter. The putter may rotate brands from time to time, but hey. You gotta ho a little bit.
