I would like to extend many thanks to the Chairman and Director of Innovation for Edison Golf, Terry Koehler for giving me this opportunity to test and review the Edison Forged Wedges from Edison Golf.
If you’re familiar with Mr. Koehler, it’s because he’s also known for designing equipment from manufacturers like Eidolon, Reid Lockhart, Scor Golf, and last but certainly not least Ben Hogan Golf (Ft. Worth irons and TK 15 wedges). For the last 30 or so years, Mr. Koehler has been designing products, for you, the recreational player. Or shall I say, the golfer that isn’t on television late on Sunday afternoons.
Did you know that over the last several decades, when it comes to golf club design, wedges have very much remained the same without much in the way of innovation. If you were to look in retail shops or the majority of golfers on any given golf course, you’ll see that the wedges are predominantly “tour-inspired” design. Wedges that are generally unforgiving. All constructed with the same design principle too, the majority of the weight is distributed into the flange (the area of the sole that extends back from the clubface).
When it comes to Edison Forged Wedges from Edison Golf, this is simply not the case. While there is weight in the lower part of the head, there is also weight along the top section of the head as well. This design feature is demonstrated in the photos above. You’ll see that the weight along the top portion of the head is heavier in the Edison Forged Wedges as opposed to the competitors. Smash factor is important with wedges as it is with metalwoods and irons alike. The smallest miss with a wedge will have a less than desirable result. Most notably, a miss short of the intended target. But this is only a fraction of the story.
Please view the unboxing video as I dive a little bit deeper into these wedges from Edison Golf. Stay tuned for much more on these golf clubs, right here at Until The Next Tee. Let the testing begin.
