Not all golf clubs are created equal. Not all swings are created equal. One of the great things about the golf product world is there are so many choices for golfers and fitters. The new SMS (Swing Match System) wedges from Edel Golf were designed to maximize the ability to adjust weight on the head of the wedge to fit it exactly for your swing.
So what does that mean? Until now, many standard wedge fittings have centered around turf interaction (fitting for grinds) and speed/tempo (fitting for shaft). But, as we explain at Club Champion, details like weight location on a wedge can affect how you deliver the club face to the ball and thus, affect the quality of your strike.
In Edel’s testing, 80% of golfers showed their best backspin results when the heavy weight was placed somewhere other than center. When testers found their preferred weight position, their down range accuracy (both distance and lateral dispersion) increased by 44%.
Finding the perfect weight is simple during a wedge fitting with Master Fitters like those employed at Club Champion. In Edel’s test group, nearly every golfer saw immediate and drastic changes in their feel, path, backspin, ball speed, launch angle and accuracy with adjusted weight positioning. Steep, over-the-top golfers were generally better off with the heavy weight in the heel. Golfers who pick or sweep the ball found success with heavy weight in the toe. Wedges are not one-size-fits-all.
Like every Club Champion fitting, an Edel SMS fitting is intended to yield a wedge that is fit exactly for your swing instead of working with a tool built for the masses. Book a wedge fitting today: clubchampiongolf.com.
