The United States-based golf-equip­ment com­pany has re­leased 100 per cent milled wedges, the only ones of their kind. Made from so car­bon steel and high-den­sity tung­sten weights, each curve, line and an­gle of the wedges is painstak­ingly cra ed to spec­i­fi­ca­tions proved to de­liver high-per­for­mance and ac­cu­rate shots. Se­nior de­signer Mike Ni­co­lette, a pro­fes­sional golfer him­self, says he al­ways wanted to “de­sign an en­tirely milled wedge, but it’s time-con­sum­ing and ex­pen­sive. The new pro­cesses and ma­te­ri­als we’ve used to de­velop these wedges make them noth­ing short of in­cred­i­ble.” The wedges are avail­able in four de­signs: Sugar Daddy, cur­rently used by world num­ber one golfer Ly­dia Ko, in eight kinds of lo s mea­sur­ing be­tween 46 and 60 de­grees; Zulu and Romeo, avail­able in 58- and 60-de­gree lo s, and Dark­ness in 55and 60-de­gree lo s. Each is de­signed for dif­fer­ent types of turf, as well as to ac­com­mo­date a player’s swing style.
