When you first look at it, it looks like a gimmick club. I bought my set back in June at Rockbottomgolf.com.My set came with Dynamic Gold shafts. The first thing I was impressed with was how far I could hit the gap wedge. My old Taylormade AW would only go about 80 yards, and I gained 20 yards immediately. I bought 3 Rifle Spinner shafts from Golfsmith and had the wedges re-shafted. I had wanted to try Spinners, and I thought they may actually make a good thing like these wedges better. I'm glad I did it.

I've played with these wedges for 3 months now. My chipping with the Gap wedge is better than with any AW or gap wedge I've owned. The lob wedge initally felt stronger than my old LW, but I've adjusted to it and really like that club. The SW is great as well.

I do believe the brass plates mixed into the stainless steel softens the overal clubhead feel. Personally I think the feel is as good as any carbon steel clubhead. Does this "Powersphere" in the back of the clubhead work like the "Powersphere" on the MAC Drivers? I don't know, but I do believe the re-distributed mass due to this "sphere" gives these wedges a great sweet spot and effects the center of gravity in a very positive way.

GREAT wedge. So solid and well made. Easy to hit from the bunker or the fairway. A steal at $29 from Rockbottom Golf.

I got the 56 and 60 degree wedges as a gift and so continues my love affair with Burrows Golf products. I already have the driver, fairway wood and putter. Shame the company's bust. I would have loved to see what else they came up with. These replaced my Dunlop LoCo wedges. The most obvious differences are the feel, spin generated and the swingweight.

The feel from the club is great. I practically demand good feel from my clubs and here it can only be described as sweet and buttery. Except when coming out of deep rough, the spin generated by these clubs are exceptional. I can go for the pin more now than with my previous wedges cos I know they won't be rolling far away from the cup. Swinging the club feels great. It is lighter though than other wedges I've tried and so if you're chunking out from deep rough, you won't feel like you have as much behind the ball with these wedges. To me, that's nothing compared to the pluses than these wedges have. There aren't many left. Get them while you can.

Put simply these are exceptional wedges. Why they are not better known or in the bags of more golfers I do not know. Like the other reviewer,I like to try new and unusual golf gear and these wedges fitted the bill perfectly,because I will admit they do look a bit gimmiky. I purchased the 60 degree lob at full price,and loved it so much decided I wanted the full set.I looked on ebay and found someone selling the 52 and 56 degree wedges and I managed to got them for the stupid price of £20 each!!Thats about $35 each.Both were hardly used and like new. Why are they so good? The feel is exceptional,the swing weight near perfect and the check and back spin that they generate on the greens is the best I have ever experienced in all my years of golf.They are very consistent on distance and most of the time go exactly where you have aimed them. In a nut shell they are brilliant wedges and the grips and shafts are first class also. I dont know if they will be available for much longer as I dont think they have sold very well.But I urge you to snap them up if you come across them anywhere in the future,on ebay or in a bargain bin somewhere. They really are that good.

I'm going to start this review by saying "yes, they look gimmicky." And some of my playing partners look at them and comment that I must have bought them because they look "so different". I did buy them them because of the looks, and because I like to try new things, but that's not why they are still in my bag. They're still in my bag because they are really good wedges. I was hitting Cleveland 900's and liked them, but since playing with the Burrows, I've retired the Clevelands. In the hands of a scratch golfer the Clevelands might be the preferred club (but maybe not, if they tried these, and liked them for the reasons I do). My impressions: Low swingweight combined with a very "active" face mades for an extremely responsive club. The combination of forged metals (steel, bronze, copper laminate) give the club great "feel". Distance control is very easy, which is something I couldn't say about any other wedges I've tried. Spin is absoluteley outstanding. I have to hit these closer to the flag from 20-yards. They hit and CHECK. I call that a good thing. I chip with the 52-degree club. I find it to be absolutely deadly around the green. The light swingweight works great when you can feel the contact so clearly. The stock 1/2 cord grip is as good a grip as you'll find anywhere. Accuracy is the best of any wedge I've ever hit, including Vokeys, Clevelands, and Callaways. I'm getting the ball to the target WAY more often. My buddies actually are starting to ask why my wedge play has improved. The narrow soles work well from the tight bermuda fairways we have here in Florida. The performance of the 56-degree wedge from the sand is surprisingly good. I would have thought that the narrow sole would have been a problem in the fluffy sand we have here, but it's not. Really, the only criticism I have of the club is that the low swingweight limits performance out of deeper rough. The Clevelands, and especially the Vokeys, with their really high swingweight are better in that regard. The bottom line is - if you like to swing the club with a bit of a "hitting" feel, and like to play to a target, then give these wedges a try. I only wish they would make a 48-degree wedge so I could get rid of my pesky pitching wedge... I'm giving these a value rating of 5 because I'm seeing them heavily discounted now.

Good response to an e-mail I sent. Otherwise, don't know.
