Fitted for Irons - Should I extend the customization to Wedges?


Recommended Posts

Hello everyone,

 

I recently was fitted for Srixon ZX4s.  

+0.5" length

2 Degree upright 

and a heavier shaft (not experienced enough to tell you specifics other than) KBS S Temper 120

 

My question is should I now purchase some wedges with the same weighted shaft with also the length and upright adjustments my irons have?  With the recent delays in ordering custom clubs as well as my local club fitting place being backed up on reserved fitting times, I was wondering if I could 'gamble' on ordering these measurements myself online.

 

Second question is will getting fitted in a simulator work 'well' for wedges?  I do not belong to a course that will allow me to practice around their facilities with different grinds/wedges.

 

Thanks for your help!

I ordered my wedges with the same specs as my irons.  I was able to hit some different grinds off of grass to help with that side but shaft choice, shaft length are the same.  I play my wedges flatter than my irons but I already know that so just ordered them that way.  Some people like different shafts in their wedges so I assume it's one of those what works best for the individual.

I get them at the end of July.  The demo session seemed to show promising results when fitted with +2 degree upright.   Is that uncommon or something?  First time getting fitted, so I don't know.

Should you?  Depends on what makes you feel comfortable with your clubs? 

 

I want the bend profile of the shafts in wedges to feel similar to the rest of my irons.  My LW and SW have 108g "S" composite shafts to match the Tensei AV White AM "S" shafts in 106g PW to 90g 2 iron shafts.

My gap wedge specs, including shaft model, match my irons. My other wedge shafts are a bit heavier but have a fairly similar feel (to me), and my lob wedge is a little flatter than anything else because that's how I play it for the firm sand in my area. The rest of the wedge lie angles flow consistently with the irons.
