Solus Wedges...what's the deal?

I've seen so many infomercials on these things but have no idea what is supposed to make them special.

It seriously just looks like another wedge, best that I can tell. They don't really talk about what any of the "special" features do to make it "better".

If this is the wedge you're talking about, this is what I can remember....

It has that channelled sole which allows increased bounce if you open the face up on touchy shots. It also has a "tour grind" heel that doesn't allow the face to grab so much. And I'm pretty sure that the hosel is "higher" in the face, meaning that the bottom edge of the club is farther down the face to get under the ball better in deep grass and out of the sand.

My advice? Just practice more with your wedges. ;)

The hozel is in a position behind the face so that is reduces shanks. Other words, the face leads instead of the hozel.

I think you guys have it mistaken with the F2 Wedge, with "face forward" design.

The only reason I ask is because, normally, there is something "different" about these clubs on the infomercials, but I can't really see what the Solus offers that is "revolutionary" like the F2 or the...snicker...Hammer.

Eh, I just read through the propoganda on the website. It seems okay, but nothing really "interesting" like some of the clubs from infomercials.

It's a question of interest, rather than one of desire.
