This looks like a great upgrade over the previous model. The groove technology sounds really good and based on you Grandaddy guys feedback it's evidently legit. I love that milling on the back of the head and have always liked the four ports back there also. These could be a real threat to my current wedges this year.

So I'm going to give you "Quick Hits" on my review of the MD4 wedges - It's easier for me as I think of things.
When I was chosen for the "Golden Ticket" and I knew that I was going to the Grandaddy, one of the first things I did was put them MD2 PM wedge back into the bag.
I bought an additional PM wedge from CPO and played with two MP wedges for about a month.
In May, I was really struggling with my wedge play and while I was playing a Call Out with Ozzman, I called "My Guy" at CPO and traded in the PM wedges for two MD3.
The MD3 changed my wedge game forever, I became a good wedge player, never fearing an up and down opportunity.
I was playing a 54° and 58° with "W" grinds. 1 thing I did have to deal with is that buying from CPO - I two different shafts.
Fast forward to Dec 4th, Sitting in the Callaway Lunch Room talking to Rodger Cleveland about my wedges and that I play with Regular Flex.
He said "Most golfer play too stiff of a flex in there clubs so your a head of everyone already"
He grabs my hand to shake it and squeezed it hard and then really soft, while doing that, he said "Which shake to have a better feel with" Of course I said the soft one.
He said "Correct" so if a softer shaft gives you better feel, that is what you should play"
December 5th, At the ECPC: While I'm waiting to get fit for my clubs, I spent some time at the wedge area, I didn't want to spend too much time there and get burned out.
I tried the different sole grinds. I knew the "X" was not for me as it reminded me too much like the PM Grind - Just not for me.
I decided to stick the "W" grinds.
When I got fit for my clubs, we talked about grinds and I said "Let's stick with the "W" grind with a Regular Flex Steel shafts. It's what I know and it's what I like."
So I was fitted with KBS Tour 110 wedge shafts in Regular Flex 1/2" long and 2° upright.
HONESTLY, THESE ARE THE BEST WEDGES I HAVE EVER HAD!
I have only play a couple of rounds, however these wedges are just money.
I got a lot of compliments about my wedge play during the Grandaddy.
That extra groove came in to play on several occasions at the Hideaway.
On the last hole that we play against Luke and Velardo, I had a 50 yard shot in the rough over a sand trap to the pin.
I grabbed my 58° wedge, took a couple of practice swing, relaxed my hands, opened the face up a little bit, and hit the ball over the trap, landed on the edge of the green and roll in the hole.
It was just tremendous shot and now that I think about it, the new "W" grind really allowed that to happen.
I have been waiting for this thread to come up because as I work with this wedge in the dome, there is something so different about these wedges.
Every Chip is just so "Crisp"
When you are in the studio and the Zoo Crew it telling you about new products that are coming out in 2018, you try to retain it all and you just can't.
I know have a reminder of what is different over the MD3
So my Bullet Points:
1. The balance is just so perfect
2. The 5D or "Nip It" grove works
3. The Micro-Positive surface roughness helps with spin
4. The new "W" Grind is really versatile - For Mid Caps (I'm calling myself that now) It just works
Callaway really put some R&D into these wedges, you can tell.

Nothing about these wedges get me excited. Im sure they are an ok option and will be in a lot of THP bags but Ill stick with what I have or look at others.
Those are some nice looking wedges. To the guys who got fit in Carlsbad are you gaming your iron shafts in these or wedge specific shafts?

@markm778, can you elaborate more on what you didn't like about the x grind, but did like about the w grind? was it a shape issue? did the x sit differently at address than the w?
