See, but water boiling comes at a set temp, I dont see how that is relative at all. If you could only play shots with certain lofts that came at 45* and higher, I could see it, but that is simply not the case. That is why in my opinion it is clearly dependent on the person using it.simply the result of the force applied. 45* is that dividing line. Kinda like how water boils at a set temp.
I guees that is how i look at it but , i dont know of any company who makes game improvement cavity back wedges unless they are already part of a game improvement cavity back set of clubs. Most wedge sets from any company are blade like not cavity backs, to my eye a 44* or 45* Pw in a game improvement set of irons is nothing but a 10 iron, thats the way i see it.You mean it doesnt look like a blade wedge. Because even my sets back in the 80s had wedges that were cavity backs. To me that is like saying that Burner 2.0 irons dont look like irons because they have a cavity back.
The modern pitching wedge is really a 10-iron, based on the loft and bounce of the modern pitching wedge in most sets. The modern Gap wedge is closer to a true wedge.
I know this discussion is not really relevant to anything, but discussions about useless information helps kill time...kinda like baseball statistics. hehe. When the wedge was invented, it really was a different club design compared to a typical iron. Had high loft, high bounce angle, very heavy, and the weight concentrated at the bottom of the clubhead. With modern cavity back irons, the distinction has become somewhat blurred, because many of these traits are featured throughout the iron set.If the gap wedge comes after the pitching wedge couldnt we just call it an 11 iron? What defines a true wedge in your opinon? Some modern golf ball's have 5 layers and dual dimples is this a true golf ball? Or does it need to have a wound core and hard shell with smooth round dimples.
it's not a wedge though, because you don't buy it individually
you get a PW when you buy a set of IRONS
real wedges are purchased separately, they don't come in 7 or 8 packs
