I have 4-Yururi Tour wedges (conf) 48,52,56,60 w/kbs $ that

replaced my 29 pw and MP R12’s and now I’m seriously thinking about switching to the PDG or Flat Backs



Was wondering if anyone who has used both can tell me the differences/opinions of the 2



PDG have similar lofts as the 29’s but what about offset?

I would prefer less.



Topline of both compared to the 29’s and overall size?

I would prefer smaller.



Feel?

And anything else I might be missing?



Or Kyoei MB’s?



Thanks

    I didn’t like the black coating on the PDGs. It seemed to take away from the feel that the raw Flatbacks offered. The PDG shape is quite good. The Kyoei MBs are Flatbacks minus the offset plus a sole grind. The Kyoeis are my favorite here.

    Thanks for the reply

    Did more digging came across your posts on TSG and with the feedback from others has made this decision an easy one.

    Good Job

    Those look bad a$$

    How’s the offset on the shorter irons?

    Only issue I have withe Kyoei MB is that there

    isn’t a 3i offered in a set.

    I’m going back and forth between the Kyoei and the 2010’s

    That’s the amazing thing about raw irons. Dip them in black oxide and they look brand new again!

    I have been impressed with the durability of the black ox finish. I only dipped them once about a dozen rounds ago. Equal number of range sessions. I’m only refilling them now because I decided I don’t want any paint fill. I Want them all black.

    Yururi PDG is sweet but you lose some distance from 1/2 to a club

    That’s only because of the loft differences.

    If I go from my MP 29’s to the PDGs I won’t give up any distance

    But if I go to the FBs I’ll gain some

    Win Win either way

    Went with the Flatbacks

    TSG didn’t have what I was looking for and was also told

    KK is coming out with an updated version and didn’t want to wait.



    I’m sure I’ll pick up the new KK’s when they come out



    Thanks for the reply’s
