Callaway X Series Jaws wedges
Thursday, January 16, 2014
Designed by Roger Cleveland, the Callaway X Series Jaws wedges debuted in 2009 and remain popular among Tour pros and amateurs. They are forged from carbon steel and feature 21 grooves in the face to help golfers maximize spin for more control around the greens.
The original JAWS wedges had grooves that did not conform to the USGA rules that went into place in 2010, but all the wedges produced today comply with the rules, making them legal for professional and amateur play at any level.
The sole has been designed with a classic C grind, which means material in the toe and heel has been removed, leaving a C-shape in the bounce. This type of sole makes it easier to decrease the bounce when a player opens the face, so getting the leading edge under the ball on flop shots and tight pitch shots is easier.
The JAWS wedges are available with a chrome finish or a darker "vintage" finish. The darker finish wears off over time in the areas where the ball is struck. The wedges are available with steel shafts and 85- or 95-gram graphite wedge shafts by Fujikura.
