MY REVIEW OF THE S-GRIND
Performance on FULL SHOTS: (1 – Very Poor; 7 – Outstanding)

1 2 3 4 5 6 7
ACCURACY compared to my current wedges X
FORGIVENESS compared to my current wedges X
CONTROL compared to my current wedges X
SPIN characteristics compared to my current wedges X

Comments: This club delivered exceptional spin on the greens! Holding balls was next to nothing and I even plugged one green. The grooves react perfect and the ball launches off the face.

Performance on HALF SHOTS: (1 – Very Poor; 7 – Outstanding)

Out of the BUNKERS X
On TIGHT LIES X
DISTANCE CONTROL compared to my current wedges X
SPIN compared to my current wedges X

Comments: The club is easy to get the face on the ball. The new grooves help launch the ball along with tons of spin that helps hold a ball coming out of thick rough. Hard to adjust bottom-weight heaviness of club in the tight lie.

OVERALL
Pros: The design of the club is perfect! Love the green color of the grip and the grooves make shot-making easier!

Cons: A little difficult to adjust to the bottom-side weight of the club made for several thin shots, but adjusting became easier.

Summary: The club was awesome! This club makes what was short game “swings” become short game “shots” that can be shaped and controlled. A must buy!
