    Honestly, it feels like I'm hitting behind the ball then blading it. But in a wedge fitted to me, that back edge wouldn't catch because the bounce angle isn't as high. I don't think it'd be near as bad if it was a RTG sole to be honest. It happens from all lies.

    No Hawk. This wedge is 2-4 degrees higher than my usual, and has 10* more bounce than the last 60* I played.

    Yea man, that sounds like it could be your issue. You're taking that 14 and increasing it even more. Not that you don't already know that, of course.

    Opening the face is my way of not chunking it on tight lies or firm lies. I keep the blade away from the turf. I'm just having trouble playing this wedge square because I'm so scared of it catching and chunking.

    That makes sense man. It sounds like it might be a tough adjustment if you've got a style that doesn't exactly jive with the way the wedge sets up.

    Yeah. I'm just still getting used to it. When the bounce is this high and I'm not used to it, it's like every lie for me is a tight lie. That's the best way I can explain it.

    Thanks for the updates and great commentary on the trials. Not sure about the cavity, as I've always played a traditional blade style wedge, 588s, vokeys, and now the cg 15s. They do look sweet though, don't seem to have that cavity look to them.

    That is something I enjoy about these as well. It's a stealthy little cavity, much improved over the CG16 design.

    Yes sir, provided I'm not dying in the morning I'm heading out to play my normal course, which should give me a better judge of the wedge.

    I don't think they have a cavity look to them at all. In fact if I was just playing it without looking at the wedge first I doubt I'd be able to tell you if there was a cavity or not.

    In lieu of golf today I did a little comparison on the launch monitor while waiting for a reshaft on another club.

    Methodology: 50 yard pitch shot using 12 swings with each wedge. This is a very comfortable shot for me so it is best to use in the sense of repeatability. Threw out the "best" and "worst" which gives a 10 shot average. I used the same e6 ball for each shot.

    588 RTX 56/14
    Carry: 47 yds
    Launch: 41.2*
    Backspin: 3136 rpm
    Dispersion: 2 yds

    2011 588 56/10
    Carry: 46 yds
    Launch: 36.9
    Backspin: 4316
    Dispersion: 3 yds

    CG 16 56/14
    Carry: 48 yds
    Launch: 39.1
    Backspin: 3364
    Dispersion: 2 yds.

    The obvious difference in spin shows what I was seeing on the course last week. I'm certain my comfort level with the 588 plays a part as well, so take the above as you will.

    Good stuff Danny. What shaft do you have in your regular 588's again?

    Tour Concept, which explains the lower launch to an extent.
