Club face is made to give advanced golfers the feel they need at contact. Gives you excellent performance from a sand trap or for an approach shot from the fairway. Upgraded system of grooves in the club face delivers high backspin rate.
Pricier than other sand wedges. Not really made for beginners.
Has plenty of durability, thanks to its all-steel construction. Design of the sole makes it easy to open up the club face for particular types of shots from the trap. Plays more like an iron than some sand wedges, so you don't have to adjust your swing much.
Does not give experienced players the feel they will want at contact.
Uses a precise center of gravity setting to yield the exact type of shot you want to hit out of a bunker. Club face has the grooves needed to create a high rate of backspin around the green. Has a carbon steel club head for durability in a lightweight material.
Blue color looks amazing, but it will show grime and scratches more than other colors.
Optimized center of gravity to give you the ability to make the shot to escape the trap. Has 21 grooves in the club face to move the sand out of the way and allow a clean contact point with the golf ball. Delivers a better feel that you'd expect at this price.
Doesn't quite have the advanced features that low handicap shooters will want.
Darker colored finish on this club prevents a glare when you're addressing the ball. Center of gravity is adjusted horizontally and vertically to deliver the best performance out of a bunker. Works nicely for pitch shots from the fairway.
Fewer advanced features that will appeal to low handicap golfers than some other models.

A sand wedge is a type of golf club with a high loft angle in the club face. Its design helps the golfer pick the ball as cleanly as possible from a sand trap, where you want to pop the ball into the air far enough to escape the sand. A sand wedge will have a loft angle between 54 and 58 degrees. Older sand wedges may be marked with an “S”, but newer sand wedges will just have the angle of loft printed on them. You can use a sand wedge from the rough, the fringe around the green, or the fairway, creating a highly lofted shot with plenty of backspin.
