    Well, I got to try this out on two days this week where the course opened.

    C3i 65° Wedge | C3i Golf

    First tried it like jhmeg2 taught me (ball off of left foot) and it got me out but UGLY. Not like the video showed. Then moved the ball to center of stance and it worked much better. Still not totally sold on it but only got in two bunkers in the two days so couldn't test it anymore.. Hated it off the grass. Too short and do much better with my normal wedge. So will keep trying in the sand when I can get out again and will follow up.

    Such a tool is meant to get the ball up and out ... and hopefully on the green.

    As such, I know many a player who should have this club.

    I would imagine that shots off the fairway or rough go straight up in the air.

    I'm not quite feeble enough to need one of these (yet), but I have the gateway wedges ... TM ATVs.

    Used it on the course last weekend (just have not had time to update here) ... in the sand traps I have to admit it got out like they said. I found I needed to hit it like a fairway bunker, i.e., pick relatively clean. If I hit behind it a little, the club seem to go underneath the ball and it stayed in the bunker.

    The jury is still out, around the green it was just too much loft at 65. The farthest I could get it to go was about 50 yards.

    I am anxious to try the Callaway sure out ... I like the idea of the 58 degree after playing the C3i.

    I can only say good things about the TM ATVs.

    I play them like I would any other wedge, but they are super forgiving ... which is good ... because I'm a hack.

    OK. Gotta say it. This thing works. Still got to learn how hard to hit it but it gets you out.

    I have to be careful not go under it in the sand traps. I do believe it does what is advertised ... just got to spend a bit of time to get use it.

    Today it either got me out too far or not at all. Might still need a new Ping Glide. This was firm sand. Either stays in with a light swing or goes to far with a stronger swing. ??????????????

    I found if I move the ball farther in my stance I get out better.

    Got out of one bunker beautifully and another too far. The juries still out on it.

    This thing totally sucks. Don't buy one. You can put the exact same swing on it five times and every one will be different distance. Piece of junk and BS marketing. Anybody wants it I'll GIVE it to them. Next thing to ho is a new Ping Glide wedge.

    I tried the C3i Wedge in earnest. However, it did not live up to the hype! A good friend and PGA professional showed me why. In doing so, he encouraged me to get effective with my Titleist wedges. I took his advice and put more work into my short game to include a myriad of lies in the sand bunker.

    My “issue” with this company that I now see sells these “gimmick clubs”, is trying to return it. They tout a risk free full money back return if not completely satisfied. After multiple attempts at talking to ANYONE who could help me with that, I just gave up and chalked it up to me being doltish. I finally received a call back 3 days later after normal business hours, with instructions on how to return this feckless wedge. Then I discovered it cost $21 to return it via UPS. I called them back and was chastised by a “manager” stating that on their website it states “Just send it back. We’ll follow with a full refund (less shipping).” That was the “gotcha” moment! It was buried beneath several red boxes giving a person visiting their site the opportunity to go directly to “buy the club.”

    I found it comical how they tout a “RISK ZERO” claim when quite the opposite is true. Furthermore, I never received the “Bonus” of Free Online Access” to their instructional video series on how to properly use the wedge. This was a supposed $29 deal.

    So please be careful as to read and perhaps re-read the fine print. The devil is most certainly in the details. I’ll only receive $78 back on my $99 purchase. I’m a retired law enforcement officer. I should know better than to trust anyone! However, I did wise up a bit and connected a few dots. This is the same company that I had purchased the “Square Strike Wedge” from. So while on the phone, I confirmed it hadn’t been shipped yet. Therefore, I hurriedly cancelled that order to avoid a similar mess. Fool me once.....
