TOUR EDGE WEDGE REVIEWS
Tour Edge Hot Launch Super Spin
We tested: 50°, 52°, 54°, 56°, 58°, 60°
Our take: One thing for sure when it comes to wedges — nobody wants less spin. Everyone wants more of it, and the Super Spin’s CNC-milled grooves Edge deliver plenty of greenside spin for added control. Its clean aesthetic is pleasing to the eye and the sole design is specifically designed to reduce digging to make it easier to extricate the ball from the sand and from tough rough.
Tour Edge Hot Launch Super Spin wedges
The details: Comes with added toe weight to expand the sweet spot and to maximize stability for greater consistency and an improved feel. The CNC-milled grooves are at the maximum depth allowed by the USGA and produce ample spin for shots that bite. Lastly, the beveled leading edge/cambered sole design is particularly helpful for golfers with steep swings, especially when it comes to getting out of tough lies and thick sand.
Tour Edge Hot Launch E522
We tested: 52°, 56°, 60°
Our take: Wedges tend to fall in two categories: blade-style wedges that are built for shotmaking versatility and thicker, cavity-back wedges that promise extra forgiveness. The E522 is something of an in-betweener wedge — it’s definitely not a cavity-back, but still has added forgiveness thanks mostly to a super-wide sole that makes fat shots a thing of the past. Furthermore, these wedges have an anti-slice bias, which is a unique feature among the crop of wedges we’ve seen this year.
Tour Edge Hot Launch E522 wedges
The details: Comes with a Houdini Sole that lessens turf interaction and moves weight deep and low for a higher launch. The Super-Wide sole design lessens both fat and thin shots, and the deep undercut cavity further lowers the CG for added forgiveness. Lastly, the enlarged clubface of the E522 comes with a full-face of grooves at the maximum depth allowed by the USGA for superior spin and control.
