I was walking through my local GG yesterday and ran across these in the wedge section. Besides having the regular grooves it appears like the entire face of the wedge was spin milled like a putter? It seems like this would create a whole lot more spin but there has to be a reason why the big wedge companies are not doing this, right?

Wow they really look nice for a cheap brand.

Every OEM is milling their wedges now, I don't know were your getting that they aren't.

Stopped into GG today, and  was hitting the 50,52,54,56,58,and 60.  These wedges all felt great!  Solid feel, not harsh, and had a nice bite to them. On sale 2 for $80.

Deep face milling could be deemed non-conforming (Appendix II rule 5) which is why major OEMs minimize wedge face milling. I am sure we can all agree that the majority of people that buy a Top Flite wedge are not concerned with whether or not it conforms to USGA rules.

I picked up a 54 and a 60 for 80 bucks and they feel great to me. For someone who has no capability to put spin on the ball, I feel like I can produce spin with these wedges. Great buy in my opinion

The face seemed to have the normal current-day milling.  It seems to stand out more due to the deep black color,  but should be conforming.  But I have been wrong before ...

Been looking for cheap, basic, dependable wedges. Anyone know how these compare with the Wilson Harmonized wedges? More options than Wilson which is nice.

I think the words "Top Flite" would turn off most guys on this forum but I'd bag a wedge like that. They look pretty sweet.

I have one of these wedges in a 56 and I've always liked it. There was a sticker on it when I bought it that said it conforms to the USGA groove ruling. I picked up some used Vokeys this fall.  Compared to my Vokey SM (60 degree non-conforming ) and SM4 (54deg & 64deg) wedges, the milling on the Top Flight looks and feels more aggressive.  The shaft on the Top Flight feels a little more "flexy". When the weather warms up I'll compare them. After thinking about it, I wonder if the aggressive milling is designed to be more grabby on the harder "distance" balls because it looks like it would shred a tour ball.

I think the Harmonized wedges spin great and have a soft feel to them. Have a 52,56,60 in black, great bang for the buck.

Look closely my friends. Callaway owns Spaulding/TopFlite. They look a lot like 'C' grinds to me. But so what? Two for $80.00.? For most of us they are probably just fine. I do agree with OP who said the name might turn some off. But again, so what?

Callaway sold the Top Flite brand to Dicks in April of 2012.

Sorry, thanks for the heads up. Poor old Spaulding. Had to be one of the oldest names in sporting goods. TImes change. Hey, Maybe Dick's will bring back Hogan. On second thought, no just let it RIP.

Callaway sold the Hogan brand to Perry Ellis in 2012 as well. All Callaway holds from the 2003 Spaulding Golf acquisition is the intellectual property and the Strata brand.
