XE 1 Wedge....views?


LOTTELLEE WINNA

Recommended Posts

A few months back I was talking to a dude who had purchased 2 of these 'revolutionary' wedges (65 and 59). He couldn't get on with them, so I bought his 65 deg for 2,000THB. Got to say, I really like it - good club for a flop shot. Anyone else tried it?

 

My only dislike is the OTT marketing 'take x shots of your game' etc...bolloks. Nonetheless, it's the best lob wedge I have owned.

You can sell it back if you stop missing the green!

My Pattaya budget is perfectly adequate as long as I don't spend any of it

Nice try Jerry....takes more than that minor provocation about our (lack of) sexual prowess to wind us golfers up  :WinkGrin1:

Saw on Facebook the other day,that someone had forgotten one of those at Phoenix .

They were looking for the owner.

No one would admit it was theirs.:)

If ifs and buts were crackers and nuts,it would be Christmas all year long.

I have a mate in Patts who works in the golf travel business and is a decent player and coach. He occasionally gives me lessons - he was similarly disparaging about my wedge. My retort is that it isn't designed for low markers, but for dudes like me (currently on 13) and hoping one day to reach the dizzy heights of a single figure handicap  :WinkGrin1:

You've already overcome a huge barrier in that you're confident with it.  Although at a 13 I don't think that is the target market.  It's kind of like having a chipper in your bag.  When you go back to "normal" wedges(and you will  :WinkGrin1: ) just make sure you pay attention to gapping, grind and bounce and learn to open/close clubface to alter loft/bounce. 

Like my friends that ask opinions on wine, I say "drink what it is you like but with enough drinking and mixing in the odd good bottle there's a chance your palate may change over time". 

I like this as part of their ad, Are you tired of smirks and laughs from the others in your foursome? Yeah well then take that abomination out of your bag!  Sorry LW, just kidding.

Well gee look golly gosh i'm and old man, almost 65 freaking years, been struggling with a golf swing for too long, handicap been stuck for last 10 years, can't find a swing that really really works.

So you see since i've been around a long time i do know the joys and beauty of what are now vintage clubs.

one thing i am good at is wedge play, have a selection of Wilson Staff, Hogan, Golden Ram to pick from, the Vokeys and Callaways are in the shed rusting.

Handicap was 4.4 when i left Aus a month ago.

500 baht probably was too much!

Got my eye on a Wilson Staff 2 iron at 200 baht and a Wilson Staff sand iron at 500 baht as well.

Seriously now, all these modern game improvement clubs are utter rubbish, you will never improve if you use them because they have no feelings and will never talk to you.

One big problem with them is the leading being so blunt and rounded, if you hit the ball skinny and/fat that's one reason why, if you can't get the leading edge under the ball in that little space between the ball and the grass you can't hit the ball properly.

    • Hi Guys

      As many of you know we have been running now for 16 years and apart from one brief time when we were allowed PayPal, so could use the inbuilt donation function, we have tried to avoid asking for donations. We have certainly avoided being in anyones face about it.

      Sadly that has now changed.

      The forum currently costs around $900 a month to operate. That includes Bangkok and Philippines but PA makes up the vast majority of it. This fee covers forum hosting, image hosting, notification emails and support.

      Before anyone says "its expensive" please be aware we have tried for years to find better for cheaper - it just doesn't exist for the size we are. Also a lot of hosts wont Touch us anyway. Our current host is actually cheaper than the previous one but that brings its own problems.

      Moving on -

      I would like to stress there is NO obligation whatsoever. Also, whatever happens the forum is going no-where!

      Donators can CHOOSE to have their donation listed (probably in this thread or we can make a new one) or to remain anonymous. Likewise they can CHOOSE whether the amount is published or not.

      There is no minimum, or maximum for that matter. ANY donation will be very gratefully received. We are very aware that many members are also having it tough these days.

      We are still unable to promote/post PayPal addresses etc on the forum so would ask that anyone who would like to make a donation to PM me, or ask me here to PM you and we will sort out details via that PM.
