Showcase: TaylorMade xFT Wedge

An interchangeable wedge face? Hey, why not?
TaylorMade's most innovative offering for 2010 is the xFT (Exchangeable Face Technology) wedge ($129). That's right, you can change out the wedge's face so you have fresh, new grooves whenever you want. Comes in 10 loft/lie combos; faces will cost $39. The xFT has a classic teardrop-shaped clubhead with nickel-chrome plating and a pearl finish. This blend of high-quality shape and materials makes it beautiful, playable and durable. Comes in 10 different loft and lie combinations, from 50_¡ to 64_¡. Also included is its 40-pound torque wrench. Features a KBS High-Rev shaft that's specifically designed to promote increased spin. Its thin urethane layer behind the clubface ensures the face fits precisely into the milled pocket while promoting a soft feel. The CNC-milled clubface produces a perfectly flat face and perfectly formed high-performance grooves. ts stock face is the "Z groove" that conforms for recreational players until 2024. (The ZTP groove face conforms to this year's groove changes). Both are sold separately. *TaylorMade recommends Tour pros replace their club faces four times a year (some actually change wedges every week); top amateurs do it twice a year, and recreational golfers, once a year.
