Our take: “The wide sole is a genius design,” said one tester. “It should be embraced by more golfers—including me. It’s the epitome of an anti-chunk wedge.” More golfers should take this tester’s feedback to heart. Getting up-and-down from around the green isn’t easy, particularly if you struggle with consistent contact and turf interaction. Smart Sole 4’s futuristic profile differs greatly from a traditional blade wedge, but that’s by design. The generous sole and deep cavity add an impressive level of forgiveness and stability to the head. The entire package will make the chunk a thing of the past.

The details: The Smart Sole wedge comes with a wide, three-tiered sole and added leading-edge bounce. That feature heaps on tremendous forgiveness from the fairway, rough or out of the bunker — especially if you’re a golfer who tends to swing a little on the steep side. Milled grooves and an optimized CG deliver the perfect combo of spin and accuracy that’s sure to help you shed shots off your scorecard.
