Inexpensive wedges


stasek

Recommended Posts

Can someone recommend an inexpensive set of wedges? I feel I should upgrade the ones I'm using currently (Mizuno MZ-55 SW, Orlimar 52* GW, no name 60* LW - all purchased for couple $ at Second Swing), but really don't feel like spending $100+/each for the likes of Cleveland, TM, Titleist, etc... ;)

 

TIA

The SMT Durometer Wedges (see last months golf digest) have milled faces (much like the forthcoming Sonartec wedges) that spin the living poo out of the ball and soles that are conducive to hitting shots from tight fairway lies. They can be had for no more than $70 a piece with Spinners or whatever shaft you want for that matter. An absolute steal.

Thanks for suggestions! So far, I really like the Adams set, especially since it can be had on eBay for $70 or so ;)

 

Now onto a search for Ping I3+ wedge at a reasonable price. My friend just gave me an almost brand new set, but it only includes irons 3-9 :crazy2:

I have the Adams set and for the money you cannot go wrong. The faces are pretty durable considering where i mostly play has that gritty sand. Then again i've only used them this season. You can find them online for about 90 bucks before shipping or you can go to Dicks and get the whole set for 100.00. Hope this helps, Steve.

You can get some nice used 588 or 900 Cleveland wedges on ebay for cheap...Also Snake Eyes are pretty good also...

Another vote for the Adams set from me. I've had the gunmetals for 6 months and been very pleased with both performance and value. The lob wedge rivals the feel & performance of some favorite past wedges (Nike forged, Cleveland 588), and having a matched set has really helped me be more consistent across short-game clubs.

Tour Edge has some great wedges for $40 or less on e-bay. Great looking and a very soft feel on chips/short pitches yet pretty solid on longer pitches and full shots. I kind of wish I had not replaced them with Pings (which for me take some getting used to). TE offers them in quite a few loft and bounce options.

You know what's a pretty darn good set, these:

I think they're $100 for all three (52, 56, 60). They set up well, have a nice look at address, weigh a fair amount, and have a wide flat sole that's fairly playable.

 

I was VERY impressed with what you get for the money with these wedges.

From that pic those look very close in design to the Cleveland 900 series.

I picked up the Adams Watson Series wedges at Dick's for $79.99 for all three...I have played them twice in the last two weeks (great weather here for January) and they play as well as any wedge that I have played.

I like the look of the wedges at set up...that is a big confidence builder with me, even though it is 'all mental', I feel like my chips will be better.

Snake Eyes 600w (or the 655tm...). I DARE you to find a better looking and performing wedge head. Like 30 bux per head, stick a Spinner in it and you have a nice stick sub $50...

 

I remember when Snake Eyes wedges were $200. Funny how things change over time.

I remember that as well. I got one for $100 back probably 10 years ago which was 1/2 price and closeout for a new model, they were great wedges at the time. Nothing at the time spun like them. I even had a Snake Eyes blade putter, think 8802 but a bit boxier. Never played them after Vokey's came out and Snakeyes was bought by Golfsmith.
