    I will agree with you about the Miura feel. I love it! Best feel for sure in my opinion.

    I actually messaged the guys at Artisan, but I have not heard anything from them. From what I understand they are pretty swamped. I think their wedges look phenomenal!

    "I actually messaged the guys at Artisan, but I have not heard anything from them. From what I understand they are pretty swamped. I think their wedges look phenomenal!" I heard back form them but essentially they told me to wait my turn :)). They definitely are swamped.

    From the one I have tested I really liked my old Clevelands CG10, OR more recently the Pxg 0311 forged; I am waiting for my Miuras to arrive so I can compare :)

    Extremely hard to find nowadays but if you can get ahold of one, these are incredibly soft and 2010 groove legal. I know MacGregor is a storeline brand now, but this was when they were still good

    Golf industry consolidation has arguably brought a lot of benefits to the everyday golfer. The loss of the MacGregor brand (excluding the rebranded junk sold today) is not one of them.

    I had been playing all the T series Mizuno for years until I needed new ones last year and I couldn't wait for the T20 to come out.

    I tried several brands and then the Honma Tw-W4's came out. I tried them and instantly loved them. Very soft, Great feel, nice trajectory control!

    They also work real well in all types turf around the green and all different sand trap conditions.

    Bonus for me is that they are a bit heavier than Mizuno's.

    There are so many great forged wedges:

    Miura Tour Wedge or K-Grind 2.0 if cost is no problem.

    Epon Tour Wedge is nice as well.

    Fourteen RM-22 is also great but cheaper.

    Widely unknown but great performance is grindworks Tungsten.

    How do they transition from the j15 pw to gap wedge? I'm curious because I need a gap wedge as mine is starting to get tired. My scratch wedges are fantastic, but I can't find another scratch gap wedge at the moment. Currently playing the tour b cb but am looking for something to transition pretty seamless. The closest thing I found so far are the t20. Thanks!

    The grindworks stuff looks good as well. What are their prices?

    I have no idea about the prices in the U.S.. Here in Europe the forged tungsten wedge costs around 200€ - 220€. A Miura Tour Wedge is around 349€.

    I have bought numerous wedges over the years. Call it wedge addiction or looking for something that has better sole interaction and spin of course. Must also be able to flight the shot down if needed.

    For years I was a Titleist CUSTOM "TVD" Vokey guy. The "K" grind which ironically has a think and wide sole, 12*. But you can lay the wedge open and the leading edge still snuggles up to the turf. The sole mass and weight just gets the ball elevated quickly. And best wedge out of the bunker. I still rotate them in once and a while.

    A must demo is the new Ping Glide 3.0. Very close to the same playability as the Titleist "K". Wide sole but the leading edge hugs the ground.

    As mentioned in this post is the Fourteen RM-22. This has been in my bag years ago and has been back in the bag for the past 2 years. Great forged feel/soft and a sole that snuggles the ground when laid wide open. Its not the highest spinning wedge but best finesse playing wedge.

    The latest experiment is the NEW Bridgestone XW-1 wedge. I demoed it and ordered it right away. Very Fourteen like and feels like it might produce more spin??? We'll see soon.

    Don't know if this helps or confuses the journey. ??

    If I understand you correctly you are talking about the gap degrees. I've had my J15CB's bent back to the muscle back spec's. I don't need the new age jacked up lofts. The 1985-2000 lofts work best for my game. So, I have my sticks at: [email protected]*, [email protected]*, [email protected]*, [email protected]* & [email protected]* then the wedges at 50,54 & 58. Hopefully that helps. Go give them a test run!

    Chip built these Miura 2018 Tour Milled wedges, 52/10 and 58/10. Excellent solid feel and great wedges - I played Clevelands, Vokeys, Bridgestone and TM wedges in the past, the Miuras are better for me.

    I really like my Mizuno S18's. They look good, feel good and have a touch of forgiveness.

    I tried cast and forged last year thinking forged would be so much better but I ended up loving my Mackdaddy raw wedges that are cast.

    Nobody posting in this thread could tell the difference between any of them if we equalized bounce and grind. They just happen to hit their best shots while holding club X, so they "love its feel". Good shots feel good.

    Getting a wedge with the correct length, weight, bounce, offset, shaft, grip and grind really matters. Beyond that, you can't tell the difference. You love the Miura feel? I would bet my house that if we took the labels off and equalized the specs the posters here couldn't tell the difference between a Miura and a $19.99 Academy Sports dunlop.

    I agree with you 100%. Wedges for me all come down to bounce, lie angle and look. Forged or cast makes no difference to me and does not effect performance in my opinion.

    Miura K grind is a great sand wedge, and the sole is amazing - I’ve hit high soft landing shots out of poached egg bunker lies
