Model Reviewed: Slazenger Pro Grind Black 64 degree

Recently bought a Slazenger 64 degree Pro Grind Black in 64 degree loft. I had a space in the bag and just wanted to try the high lob wedge as I'd never used one before. I have the Ping Tour W series wedges in 47, 52 and 58 degree (I love them to bits) but didn't want to spend 75 pounds on a 64 degree Ping that I may not get on with. The Slazenger cost me 25 pounds and I thought that if I got on with it I would buy the Ping version. Well after half a dozen rounds I do get on with it - and I don't propose to swap it for the Ping. The Slaz feels much more expensive than it is and is consistent in terms of distance. The 64 degree is an interesting club and probably a "luxury" rather than a "must have" item. But for short shots around the green which are required to stop quickly, I have found it brilliant. For me, a fullish swing carries the ball around 55 yds in flat conditions and stops it dead. Amazingly for me (a 12 hcp)I also get fairly regular backspin - normally my best wedge shots stop quickly but don't spin back. This club does need respect - it punishes you (me) embarrassingly if you don't commit to the shot but allows you to do things without manipulating the clubface that make me look a lot more talented than I am (occasionally when I don't commit it has also made me look a proper chump but that's my fault). Don't get me wrong, I'm not saying this club is better than my adored Pings - it isn't. But for 25 pounds - wow! The stock grip is (I think) a copy of the Golf Pride Dual Durometer (red / black)and feels a bit undersized. That suits me as I don't have large hands but others may wish to re-grip. I read in a couple of places that these ultra lob wedges were only for better players. Having used this for a while, I would disagree. A better player can achieve similar results by manipulating the face of lower lofted wedges. The 64 allows less talented mortals (like me) to achieve similar results by just making a committed swing. My advice - give it a go and enjoy.

Not had to find out - but for 25 quid, if you have to throw it away and buy another one, then it's not the end of the world!
