Not being long off the tee, the ONLY reasons I shoot in the 70's (an "off" game is low 80's) are my short game and my putting (29 putt average). These forged wedges from KZG (52*,56* & 60*) are quite simply, freaking LETHAL! I have typically had the ball-spin from 120 yards and in, that will bounce 2-3 times and just stop. Now however, the ball will bounce once or twice and spin back as much as 3'-10' (depending on the greens condition). Being a Southpaw golfer, I have had limited choices over the years of clubs and have used some "big name" wedges ... they don't hold a candle to these KZG's. As long as the "loose nut behind the shaft" puts a good swing on these clubs, they put the ball exactly where I want it. The only negative aspect of them, if you want to call it negative, is that they ARE tough on golf balls. They DO tend to leave shave marks and slight feathering as a reminder that I am swining a serious club. Funny thing is though that they are less damaging to the Balata balls (possibly because Balata is a bit more compliant?). All I can say is watch-out you guys on the Senior Tour if I can EVER get my drives out over 250 (lol)!!

After 4 years taking up this very demanding game, I have to say my fourth year has become my break thru year. With these clubs I managed to finally break the 80 mark four times last year. And won the Clubs Annual Golf Tournament in the B Division. It was my firts Golf Club Tournament I played in. Never thought I was good enought before. This year I hope to bring my handicap down to the single digit mark and who knows. The one thing that I can say is consistent about my game is the KZG Clubs that I play. They perform extremely great, and forgiving too. But you will know when your swing is off and needs a little tweak to get you back on track, the clubs will give you the feedback you are looking for. I quess that's common in Blades, but I don't know because these where the first and only blades that I played. Yep, hit a few blades and clubs of the mat in the golf shops, but nothing compares to grass, so it's hard for me to comment on the other brands. One thing I do know, is that I have no problem in playing with these KZG blades. It is really a learning experience to play with them. Yes, you do have to know a little about the golf swing and how to properly execute, but you will find out early if you are on the correct track. The feed back is tremendous and the rewards of hitting it correctly will be so good that you just want to keep on hitting them. I find it hard to put them away at the driving range, because I am improving with every outting. Yes, I put alot of time into it, but I can't say enough about these clubs. If you are good, then these won't hurt you at all. If you are struggling, then these KZG's blades will help you improve your game, because you will eventually hit it sweet and then Bang!! I want to do that again and again and again. Trust me, if I can work the ball a little after only 4 years (and I took the game up when I was 38) I think you will agree with me, that these are darn good irons. The only thing that I would give them up for, well, is another set just like them. That's it, I sticking to these irons tell the end. Thank you KZG for making a excellent blade that even someone like me can hit.

No KZG in Newfoundland where I live but the guys in Loft & Lie, Dartmouth, NS are great. Too bad I didn't live close to them.

First, let me mention that I received this club in error. Let me explain. I did my homework as a beginner and wanted to get a decent set of clubs, for someone new to the game, without having to refinance my house in the process. After many reviews on this site and elsewhere, I decide to go for the Dynacraft Copperhead CU line of irons. I visited their site and they listed Clubwerks.com as an approved / recommended club builder. To make a long story short, I ordered through Clubwerks.com and received my set of Dynacraft Copperhead CU''s, but I didn''t get the Dynacraft Sand Wedge I had specified. I received this KZG wedge instead. I wasn''t happy of course and I won''t even go into the details of the bad post purchase customer service experience I had through Clubwerks.com, but in the end I was stuck with this club. Now fast forward to the Golden Gate par 3 course. I pull the KZG out of the bag for a bunker shot and ... WOW! What a feeling! I''m no expert, but how much better this club felt "feeling" wise / "response" wise compared to the Copperhead CU''s ... there was no comparison. My golfing friend told me the reason was because this club was not only forged but was also made of carbon steel. The Copperhead CU''s are cast steel, not forged. So comparing these might not be fair, my friend said + the loft of the club means no bad shots even for a beginner. Just to humor me, my friend also tried the club and he''s a pretty good player (shoots in the 80''s). Well now he wants one too... He normally uses a Cleveland wedge and swears by it, but he''s sold on the KZG now. I don''t know if this helps, but coming from a total beginner I can honestly say this is by far my favorite club and I''ve tried a few now. If I ever improve enough, I might have to try the KZG Forged Blades someday.

Clubwerks.com service was BAD. They have a great website, but terrible post purchase service. I''ve been trying to get a receipt for my purchase for I don''t know how long and the owner just keeps blo

Model Reviewed: kzg forged 52 wedge

This club is an absolute must for anyone looking for a new wedge. This club has a great feel to it and a set of these wedges wlll dramatially improve your short game. The amount of bounce on these wedges is perfect. These are just as high quality as cleveland or titleist vokey wedges for about half the cost. KZG is a small component company but make awesome forged clubs that you cant go wrong with.

I acquired my 52 degree gap wedge as part of a set of KZG forged blades that I bought from Clubwerks.com. My wedge looks subtly different from the picture, more in line with the forged blade set... but nonetheless, it is a KZG forged wedge, so I''ll give you my take on it. I absolutely loved my set of KZG''s, as you will know if you''ve read my review of them. Quite surprisingly, I''ve since gone with a set of Ping BeCu ISI''s. I just loved their feel/distance/forgiveness. I only mention this because it explains my love for my KZG wedge. You see, I just couldn''t part with it when I sold my set of the matching blades! It''s weight, balance, and feel are without equal, in my opinion. The same "intuitive feel" that I described the blades to possess, this wedge possesses in surplus. Distance control is terrific, knockdowns, chips, etc... all pulled-off easily with this club. Mine is fitted with a Tour Flighted Rifle 6.0 shaft. Perhaps the shaft itself has something to do with the impressive ball-flight with this club. The ball doesn''t sky as is the tendency with other GW''s that I''ve hit. Instead, I get a nice medium trajectory (relative to the club''s loft) with a ball that has plenty of bite. For the money, getting this quality clubhead mated to a top-of-the-line shaft, such as my combo... it''s a tough package to beat. To know me is to know that I''ve tried most things out there in the golf world. Who would have thought that this relatively small component company could make clubs that are so impressive? And a wedge that can fend off the biggest competitors, and remain safe and sound in my bag. A great wedge... at any price.

You cannot find KZG''s in the typical golf store. Only builders certified through KZG can supply you with a set. With that said, Clubwerks.com is the place to go. Jon did a wonderful job with me th

KZG has yet another winner with these wedges. They have a classic shape, and a very high quality finish. These rival any OEM wedge I have seen in both looks, quality, and performance.

Customer Service

KZG's customer service is top notch.
