    I got fitted and putt with an Edel, best money ever spent. They are the real deal, especially teamed up with Aim Point green reading!

    About 30 stamps too many. Why to people destroy fine looking putters and wedges with a barrage of letter stamps?

    Those James Patrick copies were made even uglier with all that stamping.

    please send pictures of the putters.

    Since the looks are almost exactly the same, I wonder how Edel will differentiate their wedges from James Patrick's wedges?



    Cast instead of forged? Cheaper price point? No COG toe weighting? They have to do something different other than the groove pattern to make people buy these style wedges from Edel rather than James Patrick.

    Those look awesome, I'm down with less stamping, but in general looks like a solid compact head. Makes me want to hit bunker shots with that 60. That Edel logo is very vokey-like though. Will these come to retail or at least availabe for us regular joes?

    Was James Patrick originally involved in the design of these wedges in some way? That is his logo, is it not? That's an older picture from a few years ago I think. Anyway, I've had my Edel putter for around two months now and it's as advertised. The ball goes exactly where I'm aiming and it has greatly improved my putting. I'll be interested to see how the wedge fitting system compares to the putter fitting system.

    Thanks for posting these pics. I did not know Edel made wedges. A buddy from work got fit with an Edel putter about 6 months ago and loves it. I like his logo although it almost looks like the clothing line "Staight Down" and luxury car Bentley logo?

    I'm going to have to go and see Mike Adams for a wedge fitting. I'm assuming these will be expensive (not that they shouldn't be given the level of customization). Any idea on whether or not any part of the fitting cost can be put towards the wedges (or whether some basic fitting is included in the price of the wedge)?

    Mike Adams does the fitting for the Edel Wedges and putters in New Jersey.



    I work at the club where Mike works. Good amount of our members have purchased these wedges and love em just as much as Edel putters they own.



    Plus, if you have ever met Dave Edel is a real cool guy who will talk to just about anyone.



    Awesome wedges. Look even better in person, if that is even possible.

    As for me I don't care if JP makes the wedge or Edel makes the wedge what I do care about is when I go get fit for them that I am getting something custom fit for me that works for me. I was very skeptical about the Edel putters and didn't like the look of them when I went for the fitting and had made up my mind I wouldn't be buying one but wanted to go through the fitting and get my dimensions so I could have TP mills make me a putter. Well after 3 or 4 hours of going thru a putter fitting, I decided I would buy one and see if it worked. Well that has been over a year ago and I have no desire to buy another putter and I am hoping once I get a chance I can do the same with the wedges.

    It's good to see a troll account pop up yesterday and the first post be one to try and have the back of Edel. Ugly stuff can win Tournaments....Corey Pavin used the Cleveland VAS to win the US Open, but the point there, is those ugly designed clubs were an original design for Cleveland. While Mike Adams may be a good short game teacher, these designs were first put in place before he and Edel "came up" with them, as they were brought to the table when JP did their work. To say that these designs are original would be about as original as current Cleveland wedge designers claiming they invented the 588 wedge. image/Schooled.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':Schooled:' />

    If Mike Adams wanted to go with JP Wedges he would have. He went with Edel because its a better product. You will see more and more tour players using the clubs. Sorry JP lost out but such is life. Get over it.

    You are joking about Edel wedges being a better product, right? There isn't even a comparison in quality even just looking at the pictures you can see that. Yes. I will admit getting fit by a good teacher is important, but the product itself as pointed out from the pictures and discussed even at the PGA show is an attempted copy of JP wedges and then promoted as original designs. Just admit that Edel worked with JP and used his designs for themselves.

    I'd like to re-emphasize that I've had nothing but positive experiences with Edel Golf and found their putter to be of the highest quality and craftsmanship. I wouldn't expect anything less from the wedges. As for JP's involvement, a simple google search (how I found that photo) will return plenty of articles that say he was working with Edel Golf on the wedges. Apparently that's no longer the case, so what happened?



  • whatshanneninwhatshannenin Members Posts: 2,226 ✭✭
    What happened was, little did we know, in addition to putters Edel designed these wedges with the help of Mike Adams. Apparently they are wedge geniuses. I mean after all, they worked for 2 high-end clubfitting businesses specifically heading up the wedge customization areas. Did I also mention that they were tutored by Don White and have also ground and built a lot of wedges for Tour players in the past as well? Oh wait....I got that wrong....that was JP....not Edel or Mike Adams. Edel just benefited from JP "building" his wedges for the show. Golf is a game of honor and cheating is frowned upon....too bad businessman don't adhere to the same principles. image/nono.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':nono:' />

    These wedges are hand ground from blanks so each wedge is different. Each wedge is custom fit so I don't see how you can steal a wedge design from someone.

    If they contracted him to build the wedges for the PGA show, how is that "stealing"? It would seem they hired him to perform a service, which he carried out. End of transaction. I still don't fully understand what happened, but it sounds to me like you have an axe to grind with Edel Golf. Do you have any proof to back up your so far unsubstantiated accusations? If not, it's pretty reckless of you to let your personal biases tarnish the reputation of a man and company who many hold in high regard. I regret bringing up that photo in the first place.

    It only counts as hiring/contract if you compensate someone for their work, but if you work on a collaboration project and then charge them and take their design and hard work, that is why it has been called stealing.
