    Love the raw look when new but not when they get rusty.

    My previous wedges had the raw finish but I went with the tour satin on the RTX 3.0s I picked up recently.

    I have been gaming the same wedges this entire season and no rusting really at all. I use them a lot and play 2-3 times a week with practice. They just will not rust which is really disappointing

    I used to prefer the matte black color on wedges until I saw @TheLetterSee's Tour Raw RTX-3 and fell in love. They look amazing up close.

    I love the way they look once they have aged, but have never owned a raw wedge.

    The sentiment may be different after having one in my bag, and being unable to make it look clean.

    I do not enjoy the look of rusty wedges. I do not understand the appeal of having a club in the bag that looks like it was left outside last winter.

    My favorite looking irons ever were the Adams MB2 which were raw irons. Love that raw rusty look.

    Nope, I am not a raw wedge fan either. I did try it once several years ago and had rust stains on my hands and glove. Prefer a satin or chrome finish.

    Not for or against. Prefer black or dark finish, but would prefer raw over shiny chrome.

    I have used mine all season and show just a few specks of rust. Thinking about giving them a coke bath

    I like raw except for when the wedges rust and stain whatever they are leaning on in my truck bed. I have so many white items that are now orange thanks to my wedges.
