Wilson has added a 'rusty' model to it's wedge line-up based on the soft 8620 Carbon Steel used in its popular FG Tour V6 irons.
Using the same head shape as the existing Oil Can and Tour Frosted PMP wedges the Raw version is not plated so will rust over time to give it a classic look.
Based on extensive feedback from Wilson Advisory Staff members, 18 of whom played a PMP wedge this season, the same 8620 Carbon Steel has been used in the Raw finish to give and softer feel and more spin while reducing glare.
The PMP (Precision Milled Performance) - wedges include maximum volume HM grooves for spin on full shots, laser etched Micro Spin Lines for increased spin and control on partial shots plus a perfectly flat, milled face for greater consistency.
Three sole designs – Traditional, Tour Grind and Wide – offer golfers numerous loft, lie and bounce variables, with as many as 97 unrivalled playability options available through custom fitting.
Jon Pergande, Global Innovation Manager at Wilson Golf explains:
Even though it’s been 25-years since the first ‘rusty’ wedge, we see an exciting future mixing classic looks with modern technology. Our latest research on Tour has convinced us to use the RAW material as it produces excellent performance and creates the vintage look.
The wedges come fitted with a KBS Hi-Rev 2.0 wedge shaft that features an active tip section for a higher ball flight, plus more spin for added stopping power and accuracy.
The PMP wedges are available in Oil Can (RRP £99), Tour Frosted (£79) and Raw (£89).
