2009 Wedges Buyer's Guide
|Cleveland CG14 Camo |
Key Feature: The popular CG14 wedge, with a vibration-absorbing Gelback insert and sharp Zip Grooves, returns in Boo Weekley-inspired camouflage.
What We Like: The CG14 is popular for its awesome shape, feel and performance, but it’s the camo that makes this wedge more fun than any other.
Who It’s For: Hunters, outdoorsmen—just kidding. This wedge may look like a novelty, but it’s the real deal. Just ask the Tour pros with ‘em in their bags.
Specs: Available in a wide variety of loft and bounce configurations. clevelandgolf.com | $129
|F2 Plus Series |
Key Feature: Do we really need to say? Just check out that Face Forward Technology and the virtually shank-proof hosel to see the tech in this wedge.
What We Like: Its unique Face Forward Technology makes shanks a thing of the past. It takes a little getting used to, and the F2 performs best when the clubface stays square. Adios shanks!
Who It’s For: Players who tend to shank or struggle with sand play will find the F2 to be a life-saving addition.
Specs: Comes in four lofts (52°, 56°, 58°, 60°) with either a steel or graphite shaft. f2golf.com | $99
|Infiniti IP-3 Pro |
Key Feature: A precision-milled flat face produces maximum spin and helps your ball check when it lands. It also has a clean, classic shape.
What We Like: Three holes drilled in the toe provide feel and balance, and its special heel grind allows you to open the clubface for shots that require touch. Swinging a wedge has never felt so darn good.
Who It’s For: Better players who crave touch, spin and versatility when playing from a variety of turf conditions.
Specs: In three lofts (51°, 56°, 60°). infinitigolf.com | $89
