Like many of you, when the new groove rule was announced in 2010, I found myself having to think about the future of me playing my 588 Tour Action wedges. I understood I had time to play my pre 2010 made wedges, but something didn't sit right with me knowing I was playing with non conforming wedges. I tested quite a few wedges and then Cobra re-introduced in 2011 the Trusty Rusty Wedge.
When the opportunity came to review the Miura K Wedge, I have to admit I was rather excited and nervous at the same time. I had seen Miura clubs and admired their beauty and craftsmanship. My initial thoughts were they were well beyond my golfing ability. I immediately started to question myself, did I do the right thing by accepting the challenge to review the Miura K Wedge.
This review is on the new JPX Wedges with Quad Cut Grooves. One of the first things that stood out when I removed the JPX Wedges from the box was the Black Ni finish. I will address more on the finish later on in the review. Another cool stand out was the way they incorporated the large groove cut in the underside of the wedge. It’s a really nice touch that stands out.
Besides the putter, what other club are you almost guaranteed to hit every hole? The answer is your wedge. With the new groove rules in effect, we have been put in a position to make a choice, which one will I game. I have been fortunate enough to test a few wedges, and finally made a decision on my sand wedge. The Cleveland Reg.588 with the Tour Zip Grooves.
