Gary from Tulsa, OK wrote us a couple of weeks ago with a review of our wedges. He obviously put a lot of thought into his letter and puts a lot of thought into his game. We wanted to share it with you.
I am a 9 handicap and have played golf for over 30 years but didn’t really get serious about my wedge game until about 12 years ago, when I purchased a matched set of Cleveland 588 wedges. After about 7 years, I switched over to a set of Vokey spin milled wedges. Although I felt comfortable with both of these wedge sets, I never felt any special connection with them. They performed well enough and were gapped right to match my irons, so I was happy.
I first learned of your wedges via a commercial on the Golf Channel this past spring, and checked out your website. About the same time, I was transitioning to a new set of irons that would require me to buy a new set of wedges to preserve the loft gapping (since I do use my sand/lob wedges as 12 and 13 irons on full shots). I really appreciated the detail provided by your website regarding the technologies and design incorporated into your wedges, and long story short, I bought 54 and 58 Renegar wedges to match my new irons instead of the new Vokeys I was planning on getting.
I wanted to play with the wedges for awhile in order to fully evaluate them, and so here we are about 5-6 months post purchase, and I am writing to tell you how pleased I am with them. I appreciate everything about them–the unique sole design, the black oxide finish, the graphite shaft, the unique grip—they all work together very well. I think the graphite shaft really helps with the feel of the club and the ball flight is great. They are a pleasure out of the sand and they perform very well on full shots as well. Distance and accuracy are very consistent as well.
I would have to say, if someone took away my Renegar wedges and lined up a new set of Cleveland, Vokey and Renegar (wedges), and then asked me to pick one set—free of charge—I would pick the Renegar wedges all over again. I really think you have a fantastic wedge here, and if someone can look past the marketing hype of the big names and give yours a try, I think they would be pleased as well. Thanks again for a great product—I look forward to using these for quite a while.
Thanks Gary! We certainly feel the same way at Renegar. Keep spreading the word to your friends and let us know how your short game continues to improve!
