The Nike Forged Wedges are ideal for the mid-low handicapper wanting to replace their standard wedges from their normal set.

Not only do they look fantastic but the feel from them is very good due to the soft steel that Nike have used in them. The grooves are sharp, so watch out for new balls, but they give an excellent fell of control.

Compared to the Titleist Vokeys and Clevelands, there is a limited range of lofts and bounces. However if one of these fits what you need the Nike Forged Wedge is a good alternative to the big boys, with a nice head shape and size, good spin and good feel.

Not sure if it is better than the 2 established brands, but definitely one of the best of the rest in our view.

I recently got a Nike Forged wedge with 62 degrees loft and only 6 degrees of bounce and it is great to hit off tight lies. I felt that the other wedges in the set all lie well anyway, but had too much bounce, whereas this Nike Forged wedge is perfect. I think it looks cool too and the only criticism is that it could come with thicker or better grip as standard.

I really liked the look of these Nike Forged wedges. They looked great and the smooth curves on the back and sole give you lots of confidence to slide the club under the ball. Performance wise they we very good and right up there with my usual Cleveland's but I am not sure I would swap them for the Nike Forged wedges.
