I recently decided to buy new wedges and traded in my Razr X 56 for a Mack Daddy MD3 with 10 bounce. I lost 40 yards on full shot. After researching I found the Razr X 56 (sw) had a 13.5 bounce. Can anyone help me find my 40 yds, I really miss it?
Unless you are getting stuck when taking swings the lost yardage is not all bounce related.
chances are the loft on the Razor was a bit strong and may the club was a bit lighter.
Take the club to a local club guy and ask them to do a loft check on it and maybe you should be a lie test. So you are hitting the bal in the middle of the face.
With the combination of the right lie angle the right or slightly stronger loft you may just find some of you loft yardage.
@CMerrillIf my bad memory recalls the razr is a cavity back, which may be part of the problem when you switched to the md3. Smaller sweet spot on the md3 may be part of the lost distance if your not hitting the center everytime. Good example is my apex aw is 50 degree it is my 110 yard club when I tried the mack daddy forged wedge best I could get out of it was 100 yards. Finally it could be the shafts if your using a regular graphite in your original wedge its going to go for miles and if the new wedge has the stock wedge steel shaft they are going to be a lot stiffer and may cause some loss in distance. Don't give up on the new wedge when you finally get the yardage dialed in they are like money in the bank.
Check about 3 things on your old vs new wedge....
1) What is the shaft on your old wedge?
2) What is the loft (check at a pro shop) of your old wedge? Through time all clubs need to be checked to ensure that the club loft and lie are not off the standard spec.
3) What is the swing weight on the new vs old club you are hitting?
