Callaway Jaws Wedge
October 31, 2011
I bought the 56* wedge from RBG a couple of months ago when it got down to under $80, with free shipping. I've used Clevelands and most recently Ping wedges for the last 15 years. This is the first Callaway wedge I've purchased. I've been playing Callaway irons for the last 15 years (X14's and Fusions for the last 8 years). I remember hitting these Jaws wedges at a local demo day and really liking them. So when the opportunity came up to buy one 'cheap', I moved on it. The sand wedge I bought had a graphite shaft. First time ever I hit a graphaite shafted sand wedge. I got more spin on it then any other club I've ever owned. Don't use cheap balls. They are only good for one or two holes before they grow a beard. But the 60* I recently purchased came with a steel shaft. I've only used it a couple of rounds (maybe 6-8 shots), and it seems to be just as nice, although I'm still working out the distance. The spin seems to be almost the same as the sand wedge, but maybe a little less. I'll have to wait and see with time and getting used to the club. But if you get one of these under $80, it's a good deal for a great forged wedge.
Pros:Price, look, feel. It feels heavy and is easy to swing.
Cons:Not much - yet! We'll see after the honeymoon.
