    I have LZ steel in my wedges. Great feel, good distance. I used to use DG in my wedges and I don't feel like I'm losing anything by having the LZ in the wedges.

    I've always had the same shaft all the way through the irons and wedges. I'm about the make the swap to PXLZ and don't think I'll anticipate issues playing them in the wedges.

    I have the LZ in my gap wedge (mizuno hot metal) . Feel and launch are great. Plan to get same shaft in 56 and 60 at some point.

    Curious if anyone else is playing the LZ's in their wedges? I have them in my irons and just picked up a set of RTX 3's with the stock DG shaft and am seriously considering ripping them out.

    I play the same shaft and flex up to the gap wedge then I go a flex softer in my sand and lob wedge since I hit half shots and 3/4 shots with them
    It only hurts once, except golf it hurts a lifetime

    Sorry for bumping old thread, but hoping that now more people are playing them in wedges. Any more updates on these shafts on wedge? I just bought a set of wedge shafts and look forward to testing them out.

    Just reshafted my 50/54/58 to LZ steel to match my irons. I've had limited time with them (a couple of rounds and a few range sessions) so I can't say one way or the other if they are better. My main goal was to make them feel more like my irons, which they do. I haven't noticed any issues with getting balls to stop on greens. But then again, I'm not good enough to control how much balls release. Probably also good to know that I use my 50 and 54 for full shots routinely which helped spur the change.

    PX LZ 6.0 in my 4-P, GW and SW. GW and SW mostly used for full swings only. RTX 3 LW is s300 noticeably less consistent distance on full swings, but not sure if shaft or quirky RTX 3 head is the issue. i have a Vokey V grind on order, and see if that helps. If not, next step is a LZ 6.0 in my LW.

    My son just got 718 CB's & T-MB 6.5 LZ and wedges 6.0 LZ. Played KBS Tours before in irons and Tour Edition S400 in wedges.



    Loves the setup. He likes to hit a baby fade and says it's a bit harder so far but the dispersion he says is much better.

    I'm in the process of going out of DG in wedges. Today I played with LZ 5.5 in the 60 and KBS tour 120 in the 54.



    Happy with both. No more DG for me.



    Edit:



    I love the LZ in the 60. Tried the KBS 610 120 in the 52/56 but don't like it so far.
