This wedge offers an interesting combination of feel and forgiveness. You might expect a relatively large head to offer very little in terms of feel or feedback, but in fact it impressed in both categories. This is a very good club for anyone who finds standard cavity back wedges too chunky, but who is intimidated by the idea of using a pure blade around the greens.

The Innovator wedge combines the forgiveness of a cavity back with the feel of a blade. It achieves this through a 'flow-weighting' system that delivers a soft, cushioning feel at impact no matter where you make contact. A soft satin finish helps reduce glare in sunny conditions.
Jeremy Ellwood has worked in the golf industry since 1993 and for Golf Monthly since 2002 when he started out as equipment editor. He is now a freelance journalist writing mainly for Golf Monthly across the whole spectrum from courses and Rules to equipment and even instruction despite his own somewhat iffy swing (he knows how to do it, but just can't do it himself). He also edits The Golf Club Secretary Newsletter, has authored or co-authored three books and written for a number of national papers including The Telegraph and The Independent. He is a senior panelist for Golf Monthly's Top 100 UK & Ireland Course Rankings and has played all of the Top 100 plus 89 of the Next 100. He has played well over 900 courses worldwide in 35 countries, but put him on a links course anywhere and he will be blissfully content. On his first trip to Abu Dhabi a decade ago he foolishly asked Paul Casey what sort of a record he had around the course there. "Well, I've won it twice if that's what you mean!" came the reply...
