Introducing SEVEN 577 Series Wedges | Creating wedges for the most part is an easy process but for SEVEN and this particular wedge it was 2 years in the making, We needed to work directly with the foundry, grind house, and finishing company this is essential to us to control every variable for now and into the future. No manufacturing agents were used to produce our products as many brands do, every detail is extremely important to us.
For those of you not familiar with SEVEN it’s been a brand that has been very secretive on TourSpecGolf we needed to establish the proper foundation to create designs consistently and to our standard, and that standard is very high. We pull from the collective feedback of our most discerning customers and listen to what our target player truly desires. The result is this…

Straight to the point – Japan Forged of SS400, what is SS400? It’s very similar to S20C just measured by Tensile strength instead of carbon content, so why did we use it? We found it produced more spin combined with non conforming grooves vs S15/20/25C with the same groove design. It’s feedback is mild soft not mushy nor firm and the pro players who have tested it gave it’s impact feel the thumbs up.
Compact but not tiny, thin top line, near zero offset with a slightly high neck transition making it a good balance of precision and forgiveness.
For months we went back and fourth on the spacing of the grooves and the distance between the leading edge and the first groove, in the end the only way we could produce the most spin without compromise was to produce an entirely new mold + pattern for non conforming grooves so in other words we won’t be making any money of this wedge but the bottom line is it was done to our standards.
No stamping on the sole, no Made in Japan written on the neck, just a brand name, 3 digits and a blast art logo, we don’t have to explain much else.
The grinds are progressive we took some of our favorite wedges and after many months of testing came up with what we consider the most versatile grinds for nearly any turf condition. The lower lofts sit straighter and rock open less than the higher lofts, the higher lofts remain stable and flow through the turf without opening up too much or too little. We feel it’s just the right amount of trailing/leading/heel/toe relief and as our first edition we can save the extreme designs for later.
Let’s talk options, you can choose your paint fill but also we have a custom series that allows you to select any finish and opt out of the blast art logo. We can bend before the finish has been applied this is un heard of and only found at the manufacturing level. Copper finish? Black Boron? Satin with a Raw face all not a problem in fact we offer more than 10 different finishes to choose from in our custom series. Shaft options? Only the best of course, Ferrules? While not shown in this image the standard ferrule is a single silver line high quality Japan made sleeve. Name stamping with custom paint fill with a colored ferrule, black shaft and matching colored grip… OK!
The above shows a higher neck transition which we preferred over a lower especially from the rough or sand, this is not only good for the amateur seeking more forgiveness but also the professional women and men who helped us test, when I say professional we do mean players who hold JPGA Tour cards.
Low Bounce Design, they are all 8* of bounce. Depending on where and how you measure bounce any brand can fudge the numbers, we could have easily said these have 10-12* bounce but to create a uniform process to carry into the future with all our products we decided to measure it dead center using a particular method that our factory advised. It’s indeed 8* bounce and works really well even in soft, wet, sand conditions this was a surprise to us but not only was the performance of the higher lofted wedges better with a lower bounce the leading edge sat the perfect distance from the ground when set flat.
So there is a brief introduction to our wedges, we appreciate any support you can give this new brand, we believe in what we are doing and are trying our very best to create products that don’t compromise our high standards. Everything is is hand made in Japan we do not use one factory to produce everything our mold maker is different from our foundry who is different from our grinders who is different from the finishing house then assembly, modifications, refinishing and options is handled by TSG Club Works.
