TaylorMade Milled Grind Wedges

TT2017TT2017 Advanced Members Posts: 203 ✭✭
These are some of the nicest looking TM wedges in some time.



There seems to be nothing reported about them and information is lacking, or at least I haven't found too much.



I've attached a pic of the milling, its very pronounced and looks really good.



I have yet to take them to the course but will do in the next couple of days.



I have 52-SB, 56-LB & 60HB, if anyone wants any more info or pics then let me know.

    Keep us posted they look great. Curious how the sole profile compares as well as the feel.
  • TT2017TT2017 Advanced Members Posts: 203 ✭✭
    Visually the 60-HB is very similar to the Vokey K-grind which has been a love/hate relationship with me, but most recently one of love. A buddy has his already and says they are very soft feeling. I hope so. Visually they look great and that is half the battle with me.

    Had them for a week before offloading. The "milled" is more of a marketing gimmick that doesn't really make an iota of difference to the performance of this wedge. All in all, another decent wedge in a saturated market of wedges. Feel/sound is comparable to the old nike vr x3x series.

    I think the milling is just for looks. Definitely the nicest looking TM wedges to date. That's one department they were always severely lacking.

    I feel like these wedges have a awesome look. But they did take the Milled Idea from PXG no? Didn't BillyHo have milled sierra wedges in the bag last season?

    For sure the milling marks are aesthetic only, other than being a result of their manufacturing process. However, they look really good. I've had most of the recent TM wedges and I too think they've been 'lacking', but these are very good looking. I'm hoping the performance matches the looks.



    If PXG originated the heavy milling then kudos to them and I'm glad TM have done the same. Again, the milling is certainly not a functional aspect of the club, but to my eye works really well.

    Great looking wedges. They would look even better with a TP logo on the back instead of that red MG.

    Hit a 56 and 58 at demo on Monday. Very solid feel and easy to lay open.
  • cgasuckscgasucks Advanced Members Posts: 2,147 ✭✭
    I wish they would bring back the XFT wedge again, especially the replaceable inserts. They would make long term $$$ from the insert sales alone.

    I haven't tried these but I love my EF wedges from last year. I've had mine over a year and grooves still look new. They provide some serious spin. These look better and I'm sure are softer, but the EF wedges will last forever while these being softer might wear out faster.

    Could just be me, but I'm not a fan of the milling at all. Makes an otherwise clean wedge look unfinished IMO.

    Just got mine in the mail today. I Have a 52-SB and 60-SB. The milling obviously has no effect on playability and is not why I got the club. I was looking for a 60* with a good amount of bounce and a full standard sole with some heel relief and thats exactly what the SB is so we'll see how it plays! They look great at address/are extremely clean at setup. Will report back later.

    Just chipping with my 60-sb in the backyard and can already tell I'm going to love this wedge. I've been using the MD2 tour grind for a while and it's clearly apparent now that grind was not right for me. Growing up I always used Vokey's for my 60* (primary chipping/pitching club) in the 7 or 8 bounce option. These wedges had a full sole (but not a wide sole) and basically no grind to them (maybe a tiny bit of heel relief). My short game was great with these.



    When the groove rule changed and SM4s came out, I didn't know which grind to play. All of a sudden there were all these options. For the 60*, there was the S, L, and M grind. None of these looked like the full grind I used to play so I didn't know what to do. I tried the L, M, TVD K, and settled with with the MD2 Tour (been in bag for about 2-2.5 years). The L, M, and MD2 Tour have all dug way too much for me. The TVD K was ok but didn't have the feel I was looking for. I would never fully chili dip shots with these wedges but i would hit the majority of them slightly heavy and always come up short. I just figured my technique was wrong and I'm not one to change clubs too often so I just stuck with it. I also just learned about effective bounce and now realize that even though my MD2 Tour has 9* vs the 7 or 8 i used to play the old full grind vokeys had much more effective bounce than the MD2 Tour I've been playing. My short game slowly deteriorated as I became more and more fearful of hitting it heavy off of anything other than ideal lies. Looking back the S grind would probably work well for me.



    Long story shorter, this TM milled grind 60-SB feels exactly like my old wedges used to feel. The club is gliding so nicely even off these dirt lies in my backyard. There's no dig at all on square face shots even when i put the ball back of center and when I open the face the leading edge doesn't get ridiculously high like some wide sole wedges do (still higher than some other grinds but that's okay for me). Hopefully I can take it to the course.



    TLDR; looks good, feels good. Grind seems to match my motion unlike more aggressive C and M grind wedges.

    Not yet, but they are now shafted and ready to go. I've hit a ton of carpet balls with the 60 but other than proving that TM wedges annoy my wife as much as Vokey wedges there's not much else to report as of yet.



    Today is to install shafts in my 770's and once that's out of the way I'll get to the course for a proper test.

    The milled sole is for manufacturing consistency. The stated bounce and grind will be the same from one wedge to another, so you will get what you are expecting and also be able to replace a worn wedge with the exact same performance.



    I just got the EF wedges, but these MG do look really nice.

    I shafted mine myself and the 'bore' doesn't go all the way through. There is room in the bottom of the hosel for the regular TM bullet style weights. So when re-shafting I wouldn't worry too much about the red plug its far enough away from the top of the hosel where the heat would be applied. It was a concern of mine too, but once in hand it became apparent that they should be fine to be heated as normal. Normal to me is a hand gas torch applied applied in a focused area of the hosel.



    I've now taken mine to the course and range and they are as good in performance as they are in appearance. The HB really is a Vokey K grind equivalent. The grooves are sharp and spinny, probably no more than any other new wedge, but nevertheless these grooves perform.



    A winner for me both aesthetically and performance wise.

    I happened to be watching Top Gear while coming across the news of these wedges where Jeremy Clarkson was bashing MG the car company for putting logos on everything. Anyone else see any resemblance of the car company's logo to the Taylormade MG logo?



    On a more serious note, the Antique Bronze finish is the best finish I have seen in recent years. It provides the rusted look and anti glare qualities of a raw wedge but this comes right off the shelves. Last years Dark smoke PVD was pretty cool but the antique bronze takes home the prize.



    I personally like the MG wedges. The red plug and milled sole give it a unique eye catching look. I love running my hand over the sole. In my mind the texture of the sole helps cut through the turf. I was never a big fan of the micro grooves and dot texture of the previous wedges. The micro spin milling is really cool. Been playing the 2014 TP wedges on and off for a while and love the heel relief on the sole. I'm glad TM did away with the ATV grind and added in a Vokey M grind to their LB wedges. The 2014 wedges were some of the softest that I've ever played and adjusted for lie/loft.

    Any precautions in changing shafts with the red plugs?




    I shafted mine myself and the 'bore' doesn't go all the way through. There is room in the bottom of the hosel for the regular TM bullet style weights. So when re-shafting I wouldn't worry too much about the red plug its far enough away from the top of the hosel where the heat would be applied. It was a concern of mine too, but once in hand it became apparent that they should be fine to be heated as normal. Normal to me is a hand gas torch applied applied in a focused area of the hosel.



    I've now taken mine to the course and range and they are as good in performance as they are in appearance. The HB really is a Vokey K grind equivalent. The grooves are sharp and spinny, probably no more than any other new wedge, but nevertheless these grooves perform.



    A winner for me both aesthetically and performance wise.




    Glad to hear the plug doesn't need to be dealt with during a reshaft. That was one of my main concerns with these, even after finding out they weren't bore plugs.



    How about insertion depth? TM wedges have always been shallow, especially compared to Vokey. Any change with the MG?

    Had them for a week before offloading. The "milled" is more of a marketing gimmick that doesn't really make an iota of difference to the performance of this wedge. All in all, another decent wedge in a saturated market of wedges. Feel/sound is comparable to the old nike vr x3x series.




    The milled sole is for manufacturing consistency. The stated bounce and grind will be the same from one wedge to another, so you will get what you are expecting and also be able to replace a worn wedge with the exact same performance.



    I just got the EF wedges, but these MG do look really nice.




    People bash TM for QC then bash them for spending money to fix the problem.



    First part explains the benefit of milling:

    The insertion depth is exactly the same as Vokey wedges, 1.5" ish. I actually pulled a shaft from one of my SM5's and used that until my new shafts arrive, so not shallow at all. As with TM's irons there is a 'lip' that stops the shaft being inserted too far, but there is space under the lip for the bullet style weights.

    Do the grooves on the sole have any effect on turf interaction on open-faced shots from tight lies?




    No effect. The grooves are just a result of the manufacturing/grinding process. The grind's are milled by computer so every grind is exactly the same.

    I've had mine for about 2 weeks now and haven't been blinded by them yet. The actual clubface is kind of satin/not fully chrome so it's not that bad. I would prefer a different finish though as I always do.

    Any further thoughts on these? I am falling out of love a bit with my PM Grind 60 (still love the 64 though) and my eyes are starting to wonder. I picked one of these up in the 60 normal bounce at the store the other day and I was impressed. It was weird to describe, but it felt like the grind "locked" in on the fake green when I soled the club. Had never felt that before with a wedge. It was almost like when you soled a putter properly or the Smart Pad on the Cobra drivers, it just seemed to fall and sit how it should. I am not too concerned about forged, just don't want something that is too clicky. Mainly looking for something that I can cleanly nip the turf on short pitches without the bounce getting in the way.

    The lowest bounce on these are 9 degrees so if you are accustomed to it they should be fine. You wont be able to flop these off hard ground. Well you can try. These feel really good when hitting a chip clean, the ball really pops out. To compare to the sm6 it feels a little less clickier. If your looking to nip the ball look for vokeys with 4 degrees bounce.

    Yes. I have a 52, 56, and 60. The 56 and 60 glide easily under the ball, but it's hard to nip the 60. The 52 though is a different story; it feels really clean and spins nice on chip shots. Then again, I'm not used to 9 degrees of bounce on a 52. They feel soft on pitch shots, but on full shots I get a click sound/feel.

    I would think the low bounce would be better off hard ground?
