    Well the antique bronze is now starting to pop up in online stores. The stock images are making them appear a rust color which is what I want. Would love to see the actual club before I buy.




    Here's a pic from the TM insta. Better than a stock online pic. I too, would need to see in person. I wanna get a 60*.

    They had these for us to try on the recent Kingdom trip. They look great in person, no glare problems at all with these. They had a grayish look to them in person, at least that's what I thought. This will probably as close to a raw finish we may get, they were pretty adamant that they would not be coming to retail ever.

    So, you're saying they don't like to make money by not releasing the raw version?

    Lol...That was their feeling on Aug 29-31 2017. Would it surprise me if they announce in the coming months that it's coming to retail, not at all.

    I got an email that the bronze wedges were delayed again, now to the end of the month.



    I cancelled my order. I'll get them in the spring, tried of $450 being tied up for 3 wedges I havent seen....

    who sent you the email? what wedges are on back order?

    on taylormade.com it has all of these in stock..
  • ShankapodShankapod Posts: 286 ✭✭
    I had ordered them from TGW; they emailed me saying it'll be 9/25 before they ship. When I originally ordered weeks ago, it was 9/1. Changed a few times and I cancelled my order. Thinking of placing directly through TM though as I got my p790 irons immediately and ahead of schedule.

    Anyone know which grind is closest to the ATV grind on the TP wedge? I LOVE that grind but I need a new wedge. Also, how do these feel compared to the TP wedge? Not the EF, the 2014 TP. I have an EF 50 and I really don't like feel as much as the TP line.

    By itself, the bronze doesn't look as dark, but against the chrome the difference is extremely noticeable. Thanks for the pics Lesmond.

    That sucks! Must have just done that due to demand; I ordered A.B. custom spec's just yesterday and it let me....

    For those that have tried the bronze/antique wedges, how's the feel on them? Comparisons to your previous wedges appreciated as well.

    Custom ordered a set last week. They said they are supposed to ship out today. Hope to have them by Monday. The finish you guys are showing is exactly what I was looking for.
  • Ti-Cip Ti-Cip Members Posts: 812 ✭✭
    I think taylormade is having some issues with this head. I tried to order a sb 60.10 and it is not even in their configurator., so I changed to hb 60.11 and bent strong 1*. I ordered along with a sb 54.11. my order was supposed to ship yesterday, but has not.

    I am hearing there are still some quality issues with the heads. but really have no idea. sorta disappointing.

    I was at my local Edwin Watts today in Jacksonville FL and they had them in stock. Bunch of different lofts and bounces. I just bought 54 and 58 from a guy on flea bay brand new for a great price. I had no idea these were even coming out. I would’ve rather had bronze ones. ��

    I'm having an awful hard time getting my hands on these! First I kept getting delayed from TGW, so I ordered though TM directly and placed an order on their site. Custom spec's, but nothing major. Just +3/4" & different grips.



    That was 5 days ago and I hadn't got an email yet, so I called today. "No record of your order" and I'll need to re-order around end of week/early next week when the custom spec's option comes back live on the site.....



    I will get one eventually! Not sure when, though.
  • CT10CT10 Posts: 233 ✭✭
    Guy's I went to order the bronze wedges today and was put off by the owner of the shop, he says the finish falls off them? I replied that I thought that was the beauty of them that they get the tarnished look.

    Anyone any thoughts on this please?? Thanks

    Well i'll be able to answer for you soon....



    I got an order update email today and it said my wedges shipped! After being told my order didn't go through, now apparently they are on their way...

    Just picked up 56/60 in the bronze finish. I play my wedges at 2* flat, had the shop flatten them and found that the area of the hosel where they clamp had some of the bronze finish rubbed off. It's not a hack job either as they flatten by black vokeys all the time without any issues. It doesn't matter to me, but just FYI, it's a very delicate finish.



    I play with them tomorrow. Will report back if there's anything of note.

    So what are your thoughts on the wedges? Feel, looks and the wearing? Are you happy with them?
  • taylorx300taylorx300 Members Posts: 1,250 ✭✭
    These wedges replaced the EF series I had in the bag. Like the feel and look ( darker finish ) much better than the EF. Wear is pretty much the same as any black finish wedge, you know it will start to come off with use.

    I got mine today - they look great. The whole process was pretty annoying, and unfortunately not done yet.



    I ordered them and they kept getting pushed back/backordered. Whatever. I finally decide to call in about my order because I hadn't been updated in weeks, but they wedges per the most recent email should have been delivered.



    Customer Service rep from TM said they didn't even have my order. They had my account and all account history, and even saw the order number I referenced for the wedges, but he said that order was "blank" and nothing will be fulfilled. OK....



    I then, completely randomly got an email saying my order shipped. Yay! They're on their way!!!!



    Delivered today. I ordered high bounce 56 & 60* wedges all +3/4" - the wedges were delivered and I ripped open the box in excitement. Put one to the ground to check it out and could instantly tell, these are not +3/4"



    Went out to my truck to compare length to my old wedges and sure enough, they're standard length.....
