Forum Thread of the Day: “What to look for in used wedges?”

Published

on

Today’s Forum Thread of the Day comes from el_b00t who is on the hunt for some used wedges, and concerned over how much face wear may be too much, has sought the advice of WRXers. Our members share their views while often taking into account both groove wear and bounce options.

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.

  • cgasucks: “I’d buy a cheap cast wedge with grooves that haven’t worn out, preferably used. Grooves on forged wedges tend to shallow out a lot faster because of the softer metal.”
  • RogerInNewZealand: “588 Cleveland 52 58 in black five years old mid bounce.”
  • games: “Buy one 56* or 58* wedge with as much bounce as possible. 12* or 14*. Then learn to do everything with that one club. Chip, pitch, flop, sand play. Then, buy Monte’s short game video “Use the Bounce 2.0”
  • ZA206: “At a minimum, you need a PW and a SW. I’d also advise getting a gap wedge to go in between. I wouldn’t bother with a lob wedge until you have become proficient with the SW. I’d go to a golf shop and look at the new wedges and see what you like, then go on eBay and buy used previous year models of those wedges. Used wedges should be CHEAP since they are consumable.”

At GolfWRX, we love golf equipment plain and simple

We are a community of like-minded individuals that all experience and express our enjoyment for the game in many ways. It’s that sense of community that drives day-to-day interactions in the forums on topics that range from best driver to what marker you use to mark your ball, it even allows us to share another thing – the equipment itself.

One of the best ways to enjoy equipment is to experiment and whether you are looking to buy-sell-or trade (as the name suggests) you can find almost anything in the GolfWRX BST Forum. From one-off custom Scotty Cameron Circle T putters, to iron sets, wedges, and barely hit drivers, you can find it all in our constantly updated marketplace.

Adidas X Vice Golf launch The Vice Golf Shoe by Adidas

Published

on

Adidas has teamed up with Vice Golf to launch the new Vice Golf Shoe inspired from off the course which includes a dozen Vice Pro Drip Lime x Adidas golf balls.

The Vice Golf Shoe from Adidas contains ultraboost and a signature lime-green colorway to accent the designs for life both on and off the golf course. The shoe features a camouflage pattern in gray and white on the top of the shoe, while a brand-new drip pattern decorates the boost material at the bottom.

The shoe features branding “discoverables”, such as a subtle Vice logo on the tongue of the shoe while a collab logo is celebrated within. The company’s motto “Embrace Your Vice” runs down the spine of the heel, while another Vice logo lives underneath the 3-stripe caging on the inside of the foot.

If golfers want a brighter color pop, the alternate neon lime laces give that option.

“Based in Bavaria like Adidas, we have always looked up to this global ambassador and brand that has made big moves in both the golf and footwear in recent years. It is a great honor to finally present the result of 22 months of work with tears of happiness when the final pair of shoes arrived” – Vice Golf founder and CEO Ingo Duellmann

In addition to the shoe, the packaging of the Vice Golf Shoe by Adidas is made to look, feel and act exactly like their signature golf ball packages. 

The bottom of the box is wrapped in a neon lime camouflage pattern, and the top cover features the exact, embossed Vice logo colored in neon lime drip pattern as seen and felt on the brand’s golf ball packaging. The connection continues after lifting the lid and discovering an actual box of Vice Pro Drip Lime golf balls, with Adidas logos, sitting in its own compartment.

The Vice Golf Shoe from Adidas (plus one dozen Vice Pro Drip Lime X Adidas golf balls) costs $219.95 and is available to purchase from December 7, 2020, 11 AM EST at ViceGolf.com.

Best blade for 2020/2021 – GolfWRXers discuss

Published

on

In our forums, our members have been discussing the best blade irons from the new releases. WRXer ‘hypergolf’ asks for opinions on what blade iron has stood out from the rest this year and our members have been having their say in our forums.

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.

  • Chuck905: “Taylormade P7MB surprisingly stands out to me. Sharp looks and solid feel. Performance is consistent.”
  • Golfingfanatic: “Miura Giken TB-Zero.”
  • bladehunter: “Domestic It’s blueprint. And it’s not close. Mp20 has very smallish short irons. Similar to 6 iron shape. Which are odd. You need taller faces, in my opinion, for scoring clubs. My least favorite Mizuno MB in a while. Mp5 and mp68 being the best recent ones. But I’d second the TB-zero above for all markets.”
  • Nard_S: “High end, like the TB Zero. Average pricing, really like the P7. The TB offers a bunch of custom options that go beyond stamping and lie/loft, and they are Miura’s, which is never a bad thing. The P7 has a clean, unique look, love the 3D diamond muscle, minimal offset and stance. I could buy those tomorrow; I could buy the TB for a “I’m special” occasion which perhaps is never, lol.”
  • The_Champ: “Ping blueprint… and it’s not even close.”
