When we saw the Srixon WG-706 wedge we couldn't wait to get out and put it through it’s paces.
The forged carbon steel clubhead looks great and the new U-Grooves that are becoming standard on all new wedges, give you fantastic spin on even the shortest shots. However make sure you hit the first 100 or so balls on the range to take the edge off the grooves before letting your own ball get in the way.
From tight lies, fairways and hard sand this wedge is excellent and because the heel bounce has been reduced it is really easy to lay open and play touch shots with spin.
We tried the 56 degree version with 12 degrees of bounce, but with a swing weight of D3 it was not really heavy enough to go through deep rough or soft sand effectively. Don’t get us wrong, the Srixon WG-706 is a very good wedge, but make sure it is right for you and they type of courses you play on a regular basis.
