ntroducing the SPY-1 Wedge Type-S, currently CGS Orion Japan has two models of wedges the Type-G and Type-S. The S features a rounder leading edge for a more traditional look at address while the G is very straight edged for a look that helps you visualize a straighter setup toward the target line. This does not mean sharp leading edge it just refers to the shape of it. As you can see above it’s got a slight curve.
CGS Orion offers wedges in 3 finishes RAW, Satin, & Mirror the plated finished both have a copper underlay for a softer feel all three finishes are polished in Tsubame Sanjo.
Another difference between the S vs G wedges are the trailing edge grind + heel & toe relief the S is meant to be opened up and have the face manipulated for higher flop shots or a more delicate touch around the greens where the G is ideal for players who want to see it straight to the target, have the club sit flat without tilting open and make contact for a straight shot most of the time.
