    IMO, they need to get rid of the stripes.

    I have to disagree...I rather the original finish. Now it looks even MORE like an "ALien Wedge"

    I prefer the original finish however the face is satin, which to me is the most important thing.

    Looks better but could be better still. Keep the chrome a little buffed not fully chrome. Smooth the transition lines between the top edge and face a bit more to make them softer on the eye.

    The finish is far better than the original ATV... the shape of the sole still sucks though. Attack it with an angle grinder and it might be ok.

    So the finish is chrome on the outside and satin on the face? Looks better to me than the original finish, which reminded me of the finish on the old Ping M/B wedges. I think these would be a natural complement to my R11 irons and i like my wedges to be versatile, so i'll be checking these out for sure. Hope this finish comes to retail.

    Heard a rumor that the wedges are being changed and now will be pushed back to April. Maybe this is what TM will be going with instead of the original design?

    Cool pictures and thanks! I say those stripes can stay on as I can't see them at address anyway.

    TM is junk IMO, just had a whole bag and everything felt " cheap".......even looks cheap after you hit them..... Sorry doubt I will ever buy TM again, they are great at marketing though I will give em that



    Burner SF 2.0 woods

    TM MC IRONS

    x-ft wedge

    I am sure tour guys get handmade to spec clubs......



    But really felt cheap, tinny, and overall didn't get the feeling of a solid built product

    I completely agree, I will still look at these wedges based on their look at address but cosmetically they would have been a winner if they didn't have the stripes on them.



    That said, this chrome finish will do very well at retail. I actually prefer the original finish and satin!

    Will definitely be more appealing this way on the racks at retailers.......BUT, I prefer the original finish. I got to see the original finish in person, and liked it a lot. They will still be good, as the pictures look as if the face has the same finish as the XFT's which is still very nice.
