www.lynx­ Lofts: 52° / 56° / 60° / 64° Head op­tions: Loft and paint fill colours only

Shaft: True Tem­per

TECH: De­signed to be a great look­ing wedge at an af­ford­able price point. The head is based on a pop­u­lar Tour shape.

WE SAY: We love help­ing you choose be­tween the pre­mium brands. But we re­alise not ev­ery­one’s got a suit­case full of cash to spend on shiny new clubs, so we al­ways try to high­light the best bud­get op­tions, too. And that’s where the Preda­tor fits into our Top 10 wedges for 2017. It doesn’t come with any fancy fin­ishes; there are no CNC-milled grooves, no laser-milled face pat­terns; and you cer­tainly won’t get tons of loft and bounce op­tions. But what you do get is a US$51 wedge that spins shots right up there with the very best.

VER­DICT: A set of three Preda­tor wedges will set you back US$25 less than a single Titleist SM6 (the most ex­pen­sive wedge on test) and for that rea­son alone we reckon it’s worth fur­ther at­ten­tion if you’re shop­ping on a bud­get.

The loft choices are ba­sic, the head shape is un­of­fen­sive and it has a shiny pol­ished fin­ish, but trust us it does per­form.
