    Great video as always guys! I'd really like to see a video on wedge shafts and how they affect ball flight, spin, etc for high, mid and low handicappers.

    85 yards in I grab my 60 degree Cleveland. Probably my favorite all around club.

    Looks like Matty is seeing the light….forget bounce it just gets in the way of good players besides in the bunker for obvious reasons.

    It would be nice to see more of the other wedges tested and their results from different bounce and grinds. You took a detour when you started fitting Matt for his new wedges. Hopefully, if you did record other wedges, it would make for a great follow up.

    Great video guys. I've never even seen a lefty wedge with 6* bounce. Gonna have to try and find one.

    Excellent video as usual boys BUT Matt, dear oh dear, your teacher told you to clean the club between shots and you TOTALLY ignored him. Detention for you 😂

    I switched my wedge set up to a 52, 58, 64 degree 3 years ago and never looked back. My score improved tremendously by taking a longer club out and adding a high lofted wedge for more versatility around the greens.

    So do you do your wedge fitting outdoors for your clients?

    Do the fresh grooves make up the difference between his club and the Mizuno?

    Try low bounce from the rough. I like a lower bounce 58. Higher bounce sand 54 so I have versatility in the bag for different situations.

    Matty showing off his 'Canadian tan'. Clearly hasn't seen sunlight in 8 months. Ian however has the tan and the guns to match 💪

    Another great, very informative video👍🏽👍🏽 correct that when people go fit for wedges it is mostly gapping …but that’s also because wedge fitting is mostly inside on a launch monitor from a mat with no turf interaction.

    Mizuno make the best wedges too. I tried a Hi-Toe 60 and the ball flight was way too low for my liking. I always go back to Mizuno.

    great video but wouldnt those high loft wedges be for the 1st closest pin and wouldnt a gap wedge bump and run be more consistant to that longer pin with loads of green? trying to improve short game and have always heard lower the better and found to be true, you? also, is it best to have a varity of bounces since courses have a variety of lies in a round? so maybe a low bounce 60/64 for firm lies, sand and flogs and high bounce 54/56 for normal/softer lies, sand?

    Nice video guys! Matt, I interviewed Mark Broadie last week and he said ”There is no way anyone could win at PGA Tour with their short game.”. There could be annidea for you guys as well, take a look at Strokes Gained. I know I would be interested to hear your views as well.👍🏻

    Your results are similar to Crossfield's back when he did similar testing. He saw that quality of strike made so much more difference in the angle and spin, than any wedge bounce difference could have made. Granted, depending on your attack style, more or less bounce can help that quality of strike.

    Hi Ian, loving the content! What would you suggest is the more important part of the game to be fit for? Unfortunately it isn’t feasible for me to get a whole bag fit.

    I recently got fitted for a driver. I am a decent player (HC around 13) and driver clubhead speed of 105-107 mph consistently (effort swing is 111mph.) I had these numbers confirmed on two separate launch monitors on two different days and locations.

    I went through a whole bunch of options and consistently my best combo was the ping g400 LST but with the regular stock ping 55 shaft. It gave me excellent distance and dispersion with a nice gentle fade for the most part with the occasional draw, but not a hook.
    After using it for a few rounds my arccos backed this up and that I’m typically driving 280-285 and my best ones around 300. I have no problem with any of this and don’t care that I use a regular shaft even tho my swing speed would typically suggest at least a stiff shaft with most fitters…. I can put my macho pride to the side 😏

    But can anyone tell me what the problems are that I could face by using this softer shaft? It feels great to me, but I would like to know why typically you would recommend a stiff shaft to anyone of 95+ mph swing speed.

    Many thanks in advance for any help.

    Beautiful course!

    GREAT timing too – I was just taking wedge bounce into account for the first time yesterday! I just ordered the ones I play because they were mizunos at an excellent price but I really don't know when to use which one, unless it's in the sand so I ALWAYS grab my 60 for close approach shots – but I really shouldn't…

    I’d love to see a gapping session with 46 52 58 64 and see how it works for you.

    Thanks boys, another great one and resonates fully with me. Be very interesting to see Matt take that S18 60/06 and play some bunker shots. That's the dilemma I have – if I buy a relatively low bounce lob wedge, how's it going to perform for me from the sand?

    Agree with other comments – compare the high toe would have been good as this would have looked at Mizuno, Titleist (K&M grind) and taylormade. Oh well. Still good video. The shaft lean at impact will really determine the bounce you need in order to be consistent in my humble opinion. Change the lean at impact will of increase or decrease the effects of the bounce.

    Awesome video. Has me rethinking my SM7 58/12D Grind. Makes so much sense using low bounce if you open up high lofted wedges. Wish my fitter would have told me these things.

    I liked that as I love to play my 56 with a 6° of bounce, I just feel I have way more control with that sharper leading edge.

    Try the Ben hogan equalizer wedges. Don’t give you lots of bounce/grind options, but they are beautiful forged wedges and I find they really do work great!
    Underrated for sure.
