What GolfWRXers are saying about carrying two identically lofted wedges

Published

on

In our forums, our members have been discussing the merit of carrying two wedges of the same loft. WRXer ‘The Full Monte’ is considering the strategy to account for a variety of turf conditions and kicks off the thread saying

“So I’ve played a higher variety of courses this year and noticed a new trend. My current setup is a 48, 54 and 60. I’ve noticed that my typical 60 degree flop shot on courses where there’s a significant increase in long rough….has a tendency to be really bad. 

From short rough to fairway…it’s pretty money….but when it gets long….I’ve had way too many just awful shots. So I’m toying with the idea of carrying (2) 60 degree wedges with different soles to account for the variety of grass lengths and what I play easily out of each.”

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.

  • Mudguard: “Probably a waste of a club. Better having a 56* with more or less bounce than your 60*.”
  • DeCuchi: “If you have room for 2 60’s, why not go 48/52/56/60? Vary the soles of the 56 and 60 to your liking. For me, I’d just find the sole that works in both situations or work on my technique.”
  • Twinsgroupie: “Personally I would focus on hitting different types of shots with the wedges you have. Get your wedge game on point, and lots of problems will be solved.”
  • mootrail: “Another wedge may be the right answer but in replacement of your old 60°. High toe wedges are flop machines from the rough. You’ll be amazed how often that extra toe real estate can save you from the deep stuff.”

Published

In our forums, our members have been detailing their 7-wood setup. WRXer ‘Columbuslinks’ is on the hunt for a new 7-wood and kicks off the thread looking for the following details from others:

“I am looking for a new 7 wood. I am interested in your setups.

  • Head model
  • Shaft
  • Driver swing speed
  • Carry distance
  • Length

What is working for you?”

And our members have been sharing their 7-wood setups 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.

  • Cactus Jack: “ing G425 with a Ventus Blue 8X playing at 42”. This is my 250 club, and I use it almost exclusively off the deck into par 5. I don’t recall driver swing speed, but my ball speed averages around 170mph.”
  • Billfitz: “I replaced my Taylor Made 7w with a 22 degree Cleveland Launcher Halo hybrid. I like it better than the fairway wood in every respect. There’s still some out there on closeout for $160.”
  • xandersingh: “Head model: TSi2. Shaft: Tour AD DI 8x (tipped 1 inch). Driver swing speed: 110ish. Carry distance: 225. Length: 41 inches. Favorite club in the bag. Simply the easiest club to hit. Can work it, flight it down. I can choke up and take up to 25 yards off it if I’m not feeling comfortable with my 4/5 iron on any given day.”
  • maomaobear: “Head: TSi2. Shaft: Tensei AV Raw Blue 65S. Driver SS: 90-95 mph. Carry with 7 wood: 185-195 yards. Also my favorite club in the bag. Easy to hit and launch, almost use it on every par 5 and long par 4s.”
