New Wilson Staff Forged Wedges for 2020

Published

on

Wilson Staff could be considered the originators of the first mass-marketed sand wedge with the R-90, developed by Gene Sarazen. Taking from that proven formula, Wilson Staff engineers collaborated with their tour staff to seek out short-game solutions and confidence-inspiring reliability.

The result is the new line of Wilson Staff Forged Wedges for 2020 including a high-toe option.

2020 Wilson Staff Model Forged Wedges

Building on the success of the PMPs, the all-new Staff Model Forged wedges offer everything you would expect in a premium forged short game weapon, including

  • CNC machined face and grooves to maximize volume for pushing moisture and debris away from the strike point and to increase surface roughness.
  • Soft feel, thanks to a forged 8620 Carbon Steel construction, along with a Wilson Staple: a Fluid Feel insert at the base of the head.

As for technology, the Wilson Staff Forged have an all-new weight muscle positioned high in the toe to move the center of gravity higher in the higher-lofted wedges to take advantage of gear effect and increase spin on both full and partial shots.

Compared to other forged wedges on the market, the Wilson is priced at a lower $129.99, which should make it a great contender for a lot of golfers compared to some other options in the category.

The Staff Model Wedges feature the highly trusted True Temper Dynamic Gold 120 steel shaft, and the staple Golf Pride Tour Velvet grip as stock options, with other shafts and grips available through Wilson custom.

Lofts options are 48, 50, 52, 54, 56, 58, and 60 degrees in right-handed, with 52, 56, and 60-degree options available for left-handed players.

Wilson Staff Model High-Toe

Like others OEMs, Wilson is now attacking the popular high-toe category…just like you can attack short sided pins.

The Wilson Staff Model High-Toe Wedges combine a high toe profile with a wide versatile sole to offer the most playability to the most players.

“The new Staff Model and Staff Model High-Toe Wedges deliver a clean design, and precision milled club faces to give golfers a boost in confidence in their short game,” said Jon Pergande, Global Manager of Innovation.

“Designed with the feedback from our Wilson Staff PGA Tour players , the new line of wedges gives golfers more control, consistency and shot-making capabilities..”

The Staff Model High-Toe Wedges come in 56, 60, and 64-degree loft options and are priced in line with the forged model at $129.99 per wedge. Like the Staff Forged models, the High-Toe wedges will also feature True Temper Dynamic Gold 120 steel shaft and a Golf Pride Tour Velvet grip.

Both Wilson Staff Model Wedges will be available for purchase February 3, 2020.

Bettinardi unveils new 2023-2024 Queen B line of putters

Published

on

Bettinardi Golf has today introduced its new Queen B Series of putters that includes four timeless models.

The 2023-2024 Queen B Series enhances the Queen B 6 & Queen B 11, while also introducing two brand-new models, the Queen B 14 and Queen B 15.

The entire series is crafted using 303 Stainless Steel and features an all-new Caramel Copper PVD finish, which aims to not only accentuates the classic beauty of each model but also optimize visual cues on the greens to give a confidence-inspiring appearance at every crucial putt.

In addition, the new Queen B line debuts Bettinardi Golf’s new Mini Honeycomb face milling. This newly developed face utilizes an 8% smaller machine tool in order to provide the softest Honeycomb face to date.

“By utilizing an even smaller machining tool during the milling process, we were able to remove more material from the face of the putter, creating a softer feel at impact. Since 1998, Bettinardi putters have been world-renowned for our Honeycomb face milling. Twenty-five years later, my patented face continues to evolve and produces one of the most recognizable looks and feels in golf.” – Bob Bettinardi, CEO/Founder of Bettinardi Golf

The 2023-2024 Queen B Series will be available for pre-order on Tuesday, November 22nd online at Bettinardi.com, and will be available for purchase at authorized Bettinardi dealers worldwide, starting January 17th.
