2012 Buyer's Guide Wedges
This year, get up and down...every time
Tour EdgeKey Feature: The 303 milled-stainless-steel face (which is only 1.5mm thick) is backed by a hollow core filled with a thermal plastic elastomer gel. This combination delivers exceptional feel and feedback and makes every shot come off the face soft as butter. We tested it off many kinds of lies and really liked the way the Tour-perfected sole grind produced crisp shots no matter what the conditions.
Exotics Tour Proto V1.1
Who It's For: All player types.
Specs: Seven lofts available (50°, 52°, 54°, 56°, 58°, 60°, 62°). (LH available)

Wilson StaffKey Feature: Plenty of Tour players' input went into the look and feel of these wedges. The CNC-milled face is enhanced with an additional pattern that's made to spin the ball more, and the sole/leading-edge combinations in the higher-lofted models favor players who like to shape shots around the green.
Who It's For: Even though Touring professionals helped design them, they're great wedges for any skill level.
Specs: Comes in six lofts (50°, 52°, 54°, 56°, 58°, 60°) with TT Dynamic Gold steel shafts.
