Does anyone have any experience with either of these wedges?  Comparing them to other wedges you have used would be very helpful.  I am deciding between these and the Yururi Gekkus.  I know the Yururis are non-conforming and will spin more, but these looked pretty nice as well.  

Thanks

I play the 210s' to match up with my Epon 302s, but in all honesty theres nothing special about the wedges.
The shape is very nice and love that they have a fair amount of bounce.
Feel is subjective so my Scratch , Miura  and David Whitlam wedges feel better to me.

If you need any pics let me know.

I really like that oil finish that they have.  Thanks for your input i'm going to go with the yururi.

Wedges are so subjective that one person's favorite may mean nothing. I have the STX in my Epon "bag." (52) I like it fine. But how well any wedge performs depends so much on sole grind and the type of courses you play and how you use them that it is so hard to generalize. Some people primarily use one wedge around the greens. I use lots of clubs depending on the shot. To each his preference. Pretty much any decent wedge will get the job done. The brand is much less important than making sure it is built specifically to suit your needs. I don't like sharp leading edges, and prefer a modified sole with some extra shaving near the hosel. But a different grind in my 60. Look in 20 tour bags and you might see 20 different iterations of wedges. I'm not talking about sand wedges here, I should say. I use a Ping BeCu SW and you will have to pry it from my cold, dead fingers. I think that is the best all-purpose SW ever made. I've hit good shots with it from every situation imaginable. But off the grass is another matter.

the 213 is a great wedge if you like higher bounce soft feeling wedges.  I didn't care so much for the 210.  I have been gaming the 213 ever since I got it, shafted with recoil 110 proto.  I have a 52&58 coming that I plan on giving a run as I have a bold gap right now.

wedges are very personal in terms of feel.  if you like crisper feeling contact or high spin, go with yururi, Yamaha, etc...personally, I really like the soft thuddy dense feel of the 213.

best advice is to buy a couple different used heads and experiment, supo has some really spectacular heads for sale on TSG and I've got several extra sets of JDM wedges as well (vega, kamui, George Spirits), pm me if you have any interest...

tried quite a few (multiple models of chikara, vega, Miura, yonex, kenmochi, George spirits, s yard, vokey, Cleveland, Ping, callaway, mizuno, Yamaha, epon, prgr, Romaro, pro preference, sdj...and probably a few others) and I put the epon 213 and copper 208 right up there with the best of them in terms of what I enjoyed most.

everything epon does is for a specific purpose and of the highest quality....that in and of itself makes all their clubs special.  

wedges are unique IMO as they are the most intimate clubs....very personal clubs....no club in the bag where feel and performance is more important.

epon may not be your taste but their clubs are special and are worth trying especially with different shafts....I just didn't like the 210, was shafted with Monaco but I absolutely love the 213 with a recoil 110 proto....

I have the 210 KGX, Miura wedges, and Yururi Raw Gekku wedges. I love them all but I agree, swing and turf conditions play a huge roll in wedge performance. On my home course, the Miura play the best. 210's have the best feel, and Yururi have the most spin. Looks go to Miura and Epon, not Yururi. Yururi wedges look alittle bigger and clunky.

I have 3 epon wedges.  Two 213s in 50 & 58, and a 210 in 54.  Like other posters, I have tried wedge after wedge, and for me, the epons not only feel the absolute best, they simply hold their line better than any other wedge I have tried.

wouldn't the shaft affect holding the line more?

just got some bolds... they feel "sticky" when i hit them. it feels like they are on the face longer. and it feels like they're spinning pretty good but the one i hit was brand new. they were leaving lots of range balls whit marks on the face. but you say yururi are clunky, these look bigger and clunky to me at least what i'm used to with miuras.

you probably wouldn't like the 213 then as it looks a touch bigger to my eye then the bold.  shaft and head together in perfect harmony leads to great roll and a chip holding it's line, not sure how much different straight shafts would have in a chip holding it's line (wouldn't think much) but it sure has an impact on feel and with a wedge, that's close to everything....

could be the black finish of the bold, the bold is a very good wedge...maybe special even.  the higher cg works for me.  very controllable, not the most spin but plenty, good feel and I love to hit the 25/75 or 34/66 shot with them...

I haven't played the 210 or 213, but am quite fond of my 208 wedges.  Other wedges have been slightly softer IMO, but my Epons are more consistent in distance and trajectory.  When I'm tired of messing around with new wedges, I always go back to my 208's.

The latest 213 is somewhat larger than the older ones, but the 210 is good looking shape, minimal ( normal) offset so fits in well with the 301/302/ af-tour irons.

Performance/feel... My hands are made of concrete when it comes to short game touch/feel, so ... 'Tis an iron clubhead with plenty of loft on it, looks good, feels good and any poor shots are my fault.

Here's some (ipad, so not great quality) pics of a 50deg 210kgx vs a AF-301 9 iron ( not the newest 3023 which has slightly less offset and smoother heel to club transition)

I don't think the shaft affects how well the ball holds it's line on chips and pitches so much as long as it's not ridiculously out of spec flex wise...I've played a dozen diff wedge shafts (Steele, graphite, epidermis) and I think the head of the wedge is where the sauce is...that said, the shaft has a larger impact on feel.  

Bolds hold their line like no other....the fresh milling (when you first get them) is a ball!  I was hitting those low 3 skip and stop shots...fun..the high cog really works.  Recoils soften them up quite a bit.  These wedges are very nice...just a bit to crisp for my taste.  Not nearly as forgiving as the 213...didn't find them good playing with an open face but the 100 - 50 hard shot they are very precise.

Get slop hoe with your wedges...gets some endo and keyoi forged models and see what sticks...

Here are some old sets that I still have a ball with.

Where do you guys try out Epon clubs? Usually the first time I'm able to try an Epon club is after they have been paid for and delivered to my house.

My local builder carries the line, but no demo clubs.  I just happened to be in his shop a while back, and the Epon rep walked in with all kinds of stuff.  We got to talking about demos, and he said follow me.  We went out to his van, and he told me to take my pick.  I chose a 213 and a 210, which he let me take to the course and demo for a week, no questions asked and strictly on the honor system.  Needless to say, I liked them so much, I bought 3.

So, ask around, the demos are out there.

I still game my 210, it's been bent from 50 to 52, added a bit of bounce, which I like. Still in the bag, been planning to switch it out, maybe getting a Bold Satin chrome 52 will do it. But otherwise it's really solid and excellent on full shots too
