Blade vs cavity back style wedges – GolfWRXers discuss

Published

on

In our forums, our members have been discussing wedge style preferences. WRXer ‘Jjfcpa’ is curious to see what style is used by the majority of members and why, and WRXers have been sharing their thoughts on both types.

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.

  • cwik: “I play blade wedges personally. I don’t see any benefit from CB style wedges around the green or on partial wedge shots. I guess they could provide some help on full swing mis-hits, but I’ve never seen an improvement in overall scores when playing CB’s throughout the bag. The addition of CB wedges is unlikely to produce any scoring benefits for me over time as well.”
  • aaronpoling: “I played SM7’s, then went to MD 4’s, and have settled on CBX 2’s. I play G25’s so going with a CB wedge made sense to me. Both the SM7’s and MD 4’s were great feeling, but I needed something more forgiving, and while they don’t feel as great as the other, they are good!”
  • cactusgolf: “I can shank, thin, or fat any wedge. I’m just that good. I’ve played both CB wedges (CBX-type) and now my Callaway MD3s since they came out. I really haven’t noticed a noticeable benefit to playing one over the other as long as the bounce is right for the type of course and how I deliver the club to the ball.”
  • texas_tom: “I was just looking into this. I settled on a 50 degree GW CBX2 for pitch shots and bump and run and heavy grass. I have Vokey 54/58 for the “finesse” Lob and high soft shots. Of course, I blade the crap out of most of those, so I use my cbx more and more. I think the CBX has a higher swingweight? It definitely feels like it, I don’t feel as flippy with it.”

    The Ping wedges remain the most underrated , hydropearl finish makes ball spin unlike any other.

Your dream irons? – GolfWRXers discuss

Published

on

In our forums, our members have been talking about their dream irons. WRXer ‘Texas_Golfer’ asks what irons would be in the bag if money were no object, and our members have been detailing their ideal setup 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.

  • nitram: “Bridgestone J40 Blades.”
  • jomatty: “Right now I’m coveting a set of the Callaway TCB’s. A set of the black Miura CB 301’s would be amazing as well. I doubt either one of them would be any better for me than my Apex Pro 19’s though.”
  • RolandofGildead: “Ben Hogan Icons, black DBM finish, with black onyx Dynamic Gold S400. Remove all paint fill except sunburst and iron #. Unfortunately I know myself and my game, and playing those would be too frustrating.”
  • BStrong1313: “Probably the original Nike blades or the Vapor pro Mmproto’s. Those were sleek. I’m playing z945’s now in my short irons, and those have always been on my bucket list.”
  • 14max: “I want Eye2s with modern grooves, reduced offset, stronger lofts, and a multitude of shaft options. That’s not too much to ask…”

The Open Championship often provides players with different scenarios than they are used to, with some players adapting their bag setups for the challenge of links golf.

Courtesy of Sports Marketing Surveys, we can take a look at the 29 different bag setups from the 2021 Open Championship, with the most popular being a one driver, fairway wood, utility iron, 4-9 irons and four wedges approach.

The least popular setup, only being used by one player (Phil Mickelson), is a two-driver approach with Lefty’s mini driver counted as his second big stick in the bag.
