Solus Golf Solus 56 Wedges Review

Solus Golf Solus 56


Description
The Solus 56 utility wedge replaces the conventional sand wedge for all players - regardless of what type/texture of sand you encounter. Generally this club will play about 85-95 yards for average players and is most suitable for short game situations requiring intermediate spin and trajectory requirements. Greenside bunker explosion shots are a delight.

Summary:
Love the club, I hit it 85 yards and for the most part right at the pin. It lands softly and sticks.

Model Reviewed:
Solus 4.1 wedge

Summary:
As a physicist by day and a garage club tinkerer by evening, I think the Solus Golf people are addressing several needs.

Visually the 4.1 model wedges set up to the ball well, and the clubs' finishes are glare resistant. The grooves and millings are sharp. The steel shafts and plain hosel ferrules do work in concert to keep the visuals "quiet." The clubs set up as a pro's business instruments -- all business, no flash.

On the original models the long, minimally-tapered Winn grip was superior to the 2009 Golf Pride DD2 grip because one could choke down easier. Howver, the DD2 is top-of-the-line in 2009, so the grips are still a positive compared to their competition.

The wedge is a firm turf, firm sand design when played normally. One can expose 18-degree bounce by opening the clubface, which allows the club to work well in soft sand or flop situations. The heel area is relieved, allowing the leading edge not to be raised as much as conventional wedges when the face is fanned open.

So the club, shot planning, and execution must be in sync. Hold it square in mush and it will dig in. Open the blade on an uphill bunker explosion and prepare to power the ball over the green. But square the face on tight grass or firm sand and be rewarded. Fan it open on soft, sugar sand and save par.

A player's club, but it is excellent for anyone setting out to intelligently improve his/her short game. Solus wedges will not hold you back!

Customer Service:
I bought one, liked it. Won a large gift certficate at a tournament, and purchased three more lofts and teaching CD. Still pleased, I sought out and won the last two lofts on ebay. Have talked with Solus, and found them informed and helpful, not just marketers. I own 4.1 models: 47, 51, 53, 56, 59, 61.

Model Reviewed:
Solus wedges series 4.1

Summary:
Excellent wedges. Versatile. Can play all the shots with these, lobs, pitches, chips and bunker shots.
Feel different to other wedges, more crisp instead of smooth. You have to hit these good otherwise it feels harsh (blade is very thin all around). However, hit these good and they are second to none.
Cost is similar to other brands but not available in all stores. Highly recommend these clubs to better players. Not forgiving enough for beginners.

Customer Service:
Bought these wedges directly from Solus web site (after trying them in store, cheaper this way). Fast shipping and came with a free tips dvd.

Solus RD 4.1 51* & 56*

Summary:
I never thought I'd switch from Cleveland wedges until now.These are by far the best wedges I've ever played.They have a very soft feel and produce a ton of spin.First time out I pitch in for an eagle on a par 5 using the 56*.I don't leave very many reviews but after using these I had to let every one know how good these wedges are.They are very easy to use and work great from 90yds in.I don't understand why more people don't use them.

Customer Service:
Never used.

solus 56

Summary:
I write reviews here because i read reviews on this site before I buy the golf clubs,the reviews are helpful so I just want to give back. After reading the Solus reviews, I bought a 3 pc set on GolfClubExchange for $170, 51,56&61 degrees, RD4.1series.I used to play Cleveland then switched to Vokey Oilcans 56 &60 wedges. At first,my shots with the Solus clubs seems to go right,but after 2 rounds of playing w/them, i am now dead on target.Shots have a lot of spin on them,even on high rough and sand.Pitches and chips are always a gimme.Just like what the other reviewer said,of course you must already have and know the proper techniques of the shortgame,but these clubs are for real and can really help.
