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