Head op­tions: Nickel Chrome, Brushed Slate Shaft: True Tem­per Dy­namic Gold Tour Is­sue

TECH: Forged soft 1025 car­bon steel max­imises feel and feed­back. Re­fined head shape and a pro­gres­sive CG low­ers tra­jec­tory for ex­tra con­trol. New ex­tra groove max­imises spin, es­pe­cially on shorter chips and pitches. R-grind sole in­creases ver­sa­til­ity.

WE SAY: The whole forged v cast wedges de­bate has sub­sided thanks to new ma­te­ri­als and pro­cesses mean­ing cast heads can feel a lot like forged, so it’s in­ter­est­ing Call­away felt the need to bring back a forged model. We re­ally liked the sharper and squarer lead­ing edge but our pro saw lit­tle dif­fer­ence be­tween Forged and MD3 in launch and spin, but an av­er­age of four yards more carry with MD3.

VER­DICT: We like the Forged but hit it along­side an MD3 and de­cide for your­self if the forged head and Tour Is­sue Dy­namic Gold shaft are worth an ad­di­tional US$38.
