After being introduced to the Indi Golf press release in November 2017 BiGG’s Golf Talk was fortunate enough to have General Manager, Rob Lang as a guest on the show. He expressed that he believes the new StingRay wedge is the best wedge on the market especially for the recreational golfer. Being able to meet Rob face to face at this year’s PGA Show allowed me to share in person my thoughts on the club that I had the pleasure of testing myself.
My Dream Day with JP
Can you image the feeling of getting a text from one of your favorite friends after a LONG three year absence? For me, it was excitement! The message was simple; “Call me. It’s something golf related”. He had me at golf related. I know you would feel the same way if your friend was none other than James Harrington. YES; the legend himself, JP. The man behind JP Wedges.
How do you improve on perfection? Well, according to Miura you must have the soul of an artist and the mind of an engineer. It takes a subtle redesign, a technological refinement and of course a rejuvenated feel to re-invent that perfection that has never been lost but re-born. The "New" Wedge Series takes from the "Old" Series and improves on the leading edge and bounce angles which enhance impact feel and consistency with your divots. Another change to the New Wedge Series are the odd numbered lofts. In my opinion, that makes the wedges feel more
In golf the term "feel" has been used very loosely. My definition of the term might not be the same as yours but for the sake of this review, feel is equivalent to confidence. Feel is knowing that when I put a certain club in my hand, that I have the confidence to hit the necessary shot without a doubt. Although I believe feel is important for all clubs through the bag, there are 2 clubs in my bag where feel is extremely personal to me. Without a doubt #1 is my putter but the others are my wedges. Yes they all have very similar lofts, lies, bounce and grinds BUT they all feel different in my hands and at address. The hard part about testing is changing equipment so often. When I tested the Trusty Rusty and Tour Trusty wedges from Cobra, I thought I found the wholly grail of wedges. For me, nothing else I tested had compared UNTIL the Gun Metal Blue Wilson Staff FG Tour TC wedges (56* and 60*) landed in my hands earlier this year!
