Nice clubs Sakman,

 

Had a chance to play them yet? How did they perform? We will be waiting for the review.

 

Great Clubs.

 

Actually, I've played around with them quite a bit now and the feel/performance is unbelievable. Granted, Joe installed Rifle Spinner 5.5 shafts in them which added to the feel, but the grinds just made them so much more versatile.

 

Off the rack, I thought the SM's were a great wedge, but after some tweaking they're absolutely amazing. What a world of difference a grind makes that fits your swing.

 

My only problem now is trying to decide what to send Joe next!!! ;)

For us grind nubs in the crowd, can you explain further how they are more versatile with the new grinds? What can you do now that you couldn't do before? I'm curious to know because I've got some new wedges coming and am wondering what I could tweak on then if need be. Thanks.

Is this your excuses to be able to play more and sneak out from your wife? LOL! ;) :crazy2:

 

Good to hear you like the result from my work.

 

Thanks again!

 

Joe :crazy:

My swing has a tendency to get a little steep when I'm using wedges. The radius grind prevents digging and is awesome for soft greenside chips.

 

The 'M' grind is great when you want to open up the clubface in tight/firm conditions since the leading edge is still low to the ground. It also works very well out of the bunker.

Can you explain what "radius" grind means? And the other different types of grinds there is too. Thanks! I didn't know golf was this specific.

Take a look at the first (4) pics and you'll notice how the toe/heel and perimeter is ground down. This type of grind is good for a steep swing that prevents digging.

 

Here's an older thread that explain some other popular grinds...

 

Grindage

 

Note, the "radius" grind that's on the 54 is more of an 'L' grind according to the Ping diagram in the link listed above.

 

Hope this helps.

It's basically a grind on the leading edge and the trailing w/ a slight heel relief, It become a more curvier camber shape to elevate the leading edge a bit but yet added hell relief for finesse shot for open face shot.

 

Weight lost are around 4-6 grams only that can be replace easily w/ lead tape or tip weight plug.

Hi Joe,

 

does that amount of weight movement shift the sweetspot a little towards the heel ??

Hi Joe,

Actually if we have to be critical, the weight lose is more on the heel area due to heel relief grind. So to answer your questions, it should be the other way around...more of toe side.

 

However, it's all pretty much even up through out the sole w/ slight more on the heel side. It'gonna hardly effect the sweet spot. The rule of thumb is 10gr on any sides will move 1/8" of the sweet spot. SO there is no way heel relief is close enough to effect it.

 

 

Some big time feel players could feel the balance shift a bit, i would say "rare". Me my self feel the balance and impact club reaction/movement ( gear effect ) are better, especially for trap shot or flop shot. of course this all depends on the shape design of the club.

 

At the end, it's all pretty much personal taste.

 

Joe

Awww...Sakman...why did you do this to me???!! I was just looking at the Spin Milleds the other day..probably the twentieth time I've looked at them since they came out and probably the twentieth time I kept thinking that the sole grind didn't appeal to me. Now Joe has made them look like a weapon they truly were born to be!

 

Well done Joe! ;) Another beautiful job and something that should have immediately occurred to me the first time I looked at the SM wedges. Sakman, I'm sure they'll perform great for you. Good luck with them! :crazy2:
