TaylorMade Hi-Toe Raw Wedges Launched
The second iteration of the Hi-Toe features an all-new Raw Face, designed for increased spin and precision and encouraging better consistency out of the rough and on off-centre strikes.
Additionally, a new thick-thin topline design has allowed TaylorMade to redistribute weight elsewhere, optimising the CG location to improve feel and allow golfers the ability to better control the flight of their wedge shots.
The aged copper finish has also been updated, creating a classic looking club that will give golfers confidence at address.
All three sole designs - the standard bounce, low bounce and Big Foot (high bounce) - are milled to maximise the consistency of turf interaction and therefore performance.
But the big story centres around the new Raw Face Technology, with sharper, narrower and deeper grooves in the face, as well as laser etching, improving the overall consistency of the club across the entire face - even out the rough.
Furthermore, the face will rust over time, enhancing that classic look while preserving the consistency of spin golfers can expect across the club’s life.
Each Hi-Toe Raw wedge is constructed using 8620 carbon steel and features KBS Hi-Rev 2.0 115g Taper shafts, and Lamkin Crossline 360 grips.
The standard-bounce offering, which is suited for all types of playing conditions, is available in a range of lofts between 50° and 62°.
For golfers used to playing in firmer conditions, a 58° and a 60° wedge is available, while anyone who prefers a club they can rely on when the ground is soft, the Big-Foot edition features 15° of bounce and comes in lofts of 56°, 58° and 60°.

A lifelong golf fan, Andy graduated in 2019 with a degree in Sports Journalism and got his first role in the industry as the Instruction Editor for National Club Golfer. From there, he went on to enjoy a spell freelancing for Stats Perform producing football reports, and then for RacingNews365 covering Formula 1. However, he couldn't turn down the opportunity to get back into the sport he grew up watching and playing and now covers a mixture of equipment, instruction and news for Golf Monthly's website and print title.
Andy took up the game at the age of seven and even harboured ambitions of a career in the professional ranks for a spell. That didn’t pan out, but he still enjoys his weekend golf at Royal Troon and holds a scratch handicap. As a side note, he's made five holes-in-one and could quite possibly be Retief Goosen’s biggest fan.
As well as the above, some of Andy's work has featured on websites such as goal.com, dailyrecord.co.uk, and theopen.com.
