TaylorMade Milled Grind Wedges


Recommended Posts

I use to have some tour Fe2o3 that I think were Weir's old wedges, man they were great

I wish they would bring back the XFT wedge again, especially the replaceable inserts. They would make long term $$$ from the insert sales alone.

Yes. The 2007 Fe2o3 (rust) Tour Issue RAC Black box cutters with the square X grooves came first. But on full shots they shredded a Pro V1x so badly that a ball would at best last three holes before needing replacement. Then came the 2008 Y groove mod that just slightly beveled the box groove edges but spun almost as much from wet rough and barely shredded the balls anymore. This was the wedge series that perhaps even more than the Vokey Tour Issue SM2s caused the 2010 wedge rule revisions to prevent that era of PGA Tour driver bombers from bombing it into the rough with impunity.

He asked “what were you thinking?” And I said if I could take them to a dicks, have them lengthened and then TM credits me the bill. He thought that was an awful idea and only wanted TM to touch the irons. I get his position, but not looking to be without them another week+ when I’m losing out on good golf here in the MW

I just bought these online from Golftown in Canada and they are definitely 1/2 -1" shorter than my EF wedges. What gives? Should I contact TM or Golftown about this ??

In the end, I just had them lengthened on my own. I wasn't about to wait over a week for the wedges. I am very happy with them now!
