Wilson PMP Wedges: What you need to know

Published

on

Wilson’s new PMP wedges (Precision Milled Performance) use the company’s full-volume HM grooves, as well as “Micro Spin Lines” between each groove to maximize spin on both partial and full wedge shots.

The PMP wedges ($99.99 each) have already been used on the PGA Tour by Troy Merritt, Ricky Barnes, and Brendan Steele, and we expect Kevin Streelman and Padraig Harrington to be gaming them in 2016 as well.

    The micro grooves are patterned in the same fashion as those on Wishon’s PCF Micro wedges, though they don’t appear to be as pronounced as the Wishon design. http://wishongolf.com/designs/wedges/pfc-micro-tour/
    First time I’ve seen an OEM put something out similar to the Wishons, which have been available for several years now, and produce more spin off half-shots than anything else I’ve come across.

    The club looks nice but I favor a forged wedge. Also the micro lines will be gone in one round in our sand based soil here in Florida. However I intend to try them and if the feel good they may replace my worn out Scratch wedges.

    They look pretty good. I wish they would have kept the dark PVD finish as well, but I’d use the blue ones anyways.

    Gave up on Wildon a few years ago after my golf bag was stolen from military housing in Hawaii. Contacted Wilson asking if they would help replace my irons ( at my cost). Was told sorry, can’t help. Mizuno and Peak Vision write me back thanking me for my service and replaced my wedges and sunglasses for Free! But I digress… Time has passed and I admit I like the looks of the new wedges… Will compare them to my current lineup ( cobra tour trusty).

      Are you kidding me? The company won’t replace your stolen golf clubs, and it’s somehow their fault? You should count yourself very lucky that you somehow got your wedges and glasses replaced. It’s not the manufacturer’s duty to replace stolen product.

        Oh I agree. I asked them to replace a model I could no longer find and I would pay for them. They just said can’t help you, it’s not our policy, not even a ” sorry we no longer carry these or we no longer have these is stock etc… Kudos to the other companies mentions for helping me.

        We need to stop breeding a society of complainers. its also possible that the company has changed the way they manufacture and to set up molds of such club is not economical. Yes Ping will do this but they also will charge a premium to manufacture one-offs. Thank you for serving but please don’t blame the manufacture for your miss fortune.

      Takes some balls (Duos) to post your comments about Wilson. So what they didn’t help. Had you said they didn’t replace a defected item it would have been different. Next time Wilson loses something they should call you looking for help on replacing it for free.

        I believe he said he asked Wilson to replace the irons, “at his cost”.

          Thanks Gary…I did say I would pay for the items stolen

            Story makes no sense. My 3 year old set of clubs (I know u didn’t specify) were stolen, so please dust off the old manufacturing equipment and make me a new set. What did you expect them to say?

              I guess maybe I thought they would say what Mizuno did

How did heavier or lighter shafts affect your iron performance? – GolfWRXers discuss

Published

on

In our forums, our members have been discussing shaft weight and how it affects their iron play. WRXer ‘RoyalMustang’ kicks off the thread asking two questions:

“1) If you went lighter, how did it impact your game (down to 95-105g). Tempo changes, good or bad?   

2) If you went heavier (120-130g), same question? Good move?”

And our members have been sharing their experiences in our forum.

Here are a few posts from the thread, but make sure to check out the entire discussion and have your say at the link below.

  • gripandrip: “Average about 105 on my driver swing speed… not much more anymore. Currently playing to a ~2 HC. Switched from DGS300 to Steelfiber i95. No issues for me at all. I stayed with DG400’s in my wedges. Initially, I thought I had issues with dispersion, but after a couple of rounds, it was no longer a concern.”
  • mackepa: “I have found that around 120 grams is the “sweet spot” for my iron game. Anything heavier, and I start swinging hard to try to get the shaft to feel like it’s loading. Anything lighter than 120, and it starts to feel like a toothpick. I tend to also play my irons over length since I’m a little taller. I currently swing driver about 110mph, but I don’t really go after my irons with the same effort. I currently love the KBS $-Taper 120 Stiff.”
  • erikro: “Biggest difference for me is with the s300 shaft I feel it more the next morning. With a 105 gram shaft I have no trouble.”
  • Ri_Redneck: “I play graphite iron shafts, but only 115g and higher. I like a club with some heft. If they get too light, it throws my sequencing off, and balls go everywhere. I can’t say I’ve ever gotten too heavy in my irons, but 80g is the top of what I like in my driver and FWs.”
