TSG’s Top 5 Best Performing Wedges!

Best Forged Wedge

It’s not easy choosing the right wedge there a lot of variables come into play from your type of swing to your conditions plus more all play a strong hand in how well you do with wedges,  In this post I’d like to talk about what I feel are the best of the best on the market today when it comes to Japan Forged and Hand Made Wedges.  So you may be wondering why does it have to be Japan Forged, well of course TSG is highly discerning about what is good and what is not but bottom line is anywhere in life you want to start with the best materials and it’s fact that J.I.S standards are the better and highest  when you look into the mineral structure in S15, S20, S25C Japan reigns supreme in this regard,  so basically we start with the best ingredients and you can’t always tell yes we are splitting hairs in some cases but again you only live once why not strive for knowing what you hold in your hands to score is special.

Why Handmade? For so many reasons while automation and mass production is more precise it’s no craft,  China,  Taiwan and other countries don’t have the skilled grinders to do this type of artisan work,  this is a skill passed down with many years of apprenticeship it’s very personal and with experience you can look at wedges and know where they came from and who the grinder is there is just something special about not every wedge being 100% the same also et’s not forget finish &  feel best is RAW or a Golf Specific NiCr Japanese Satin/Mirror holds no equal in feel and beauty.

These examples apply anywhere in life,  handmade motors are best!  handmade pasta is better!  we lust over hand crafted watches and clothing, Knives and more there is without a doubt something inherently better about the product that’s made by human hands and costs more to produce, I know I’d rather buy a single wedge that had manufacturing costs 8X-20X higher in price than mass a produced product.  Rant Over! Time to Follow the Jump to see what is TSG approved…

RomaRo Tour Stream Wedges – Forgiveness for the Better Player

RomaRo Tour Stream Wedges

The word “Tour” in this case signifies that this is the RomaRo Alcobaca wedges most compact with less offset model and compared to other compact players wedges it’s still slightly oversized.  I’ve always suggested the Alcobaca to players who request a higher MOI very forgiving wedge and I’d suggest disregarding the word tour and consider this much of the same a high spin forgiving wedge that is good really for all levels,  for the high handicap who wants a wedge to grow into or the low handicap who doesn’t mind looking and hitting something a bit larger.

RomaRo threw the kitchen sink at this one with a ton of good attributes,  I will explain this with more pics after the jump….
