Harry Taylor Dimple-Design Wedges

kingwardkingward Always SearchingMembers Posts: 14 ✭✭

I've been getting emails advertising and offering for sale a new set of dimple-design wedges designed by Harry Taylor. I am intrigued. Does anyone have any experience with these wedges? There is no place I can go to try these clubs out and I hate to commit without any information from any user whatsoever. Can anyone help?

    These things are so new, maybe no one has bought any yet. My resistance will break down, and I will buy a 60-degree if nobody talks me out of it.

    You’ll have to let everyone know how it plays if you get one.

    It might be left up to me at that. :)

    They’re hype. I’ve used them before. Met the guy that makes them.

    Well, I bought the 60-degree. have played two rounds with it, and am pleased so far. The main attributes are that it sits nicely on the ground, glides through the turf - even the rough, and is almost impossible to hit fat. If experience continues to confirm the value of this wedge, I will be adding the 56-degree version soon.

    A little update. I'm liking the wedge. The wedge and I are still getting acquainted. But it has some very good forgiveness features without he blatant gimmickry of some of the novelty fat-bottom wedges on the market. The average player, with practice, can hit all the short green-side shots that require some loft with this club. It is capable of about 70-75 yards in full shot situations. One thing I noticed is that it came to me about 3/4" shorter than my other lob wedge. I will probably correct this in due course. However, if a person wants a lob wedge in his arsenal and has trouble with what he/she is using now, this club is worth a try at $87.

    You know yourself that every golfer has itches that can only be scratched one way - through new club acquisition. :D This I'll say: whenever I buy something new for golf, I have a specific purpose in mind.

    DP2 and DP3 were abject failures and if you saw DP4 2 weekends ago you'd know that 4 was on the way.

    Idea is not new. I had an old golf iron from back in the 1930s which had a dimples rather than grooves. Clubface looked something like this:

    The old iron disappeared from the family basement while I was away at college.

    The dimples on this wedge are on the bottom, not the face.
