Mack Daddy 2 Chrome
The Mack Daddy of Wedges
I tried out a lot of wedges this year and none of them had what this one does. It has a great weight and feel to it when you’re swinging it or just holding it in your hand. I liked the control I had over every detail of my balls flight with this club. It’s easy to manipulate the face and still feel comfortable at address. Do you miss the center of the face when striking the ball? Don’t worry this club has some forgiveness to it. It really powers through the rough grass and the ball still comes out soft if you want it to. Also plays great from really tight lies too. I like them so much I wish Callaway made Mack Daddy Irons!

Don't get stuck chasing a name...
I purchased the 52 degree wedge (eventually bent it to 50 deg) hoping to find that perfect 100yrd club, something I could use anywhere I wanted from the fairway for short shots. I tried it for a while and then bought a 50 degree Titleist SM4, but wound up back with the MD 2 because it just felt so much better. Soft but solid with plenty of bite with even half shots, only a forged stick feels that good. Since then, I've added the 56 (bent to 54) and hope to soon have the 60... Try these out before chasing a name, do your research and give these wedges a chance.... you won't regret it...

Amazing spin. Very easy to hit a variety of shots. Perfect for around the greens even in the rough.
It doesn't get better than this wedge. I just wish they would offer it with a lower degree of bounce. 10 is a high bounce and I play a mid bounce but I made the exception on my 52* but I can't get away with that high of a bounce with my 60*. They offer 10-14 degree of bounce while other company's offer 4-12 ish. So they excluded a huge group of people which doesn't make sense. Most people play an 8 bounce. And I called to see if I could custom order a mid bounce set but they said no surprisingly quite rudely. Other than my problems with the high bounce this is the best wedge and anybody would fall I love with it if they try it. I can reach 10,500 rpm with the 52* wedge witch is 3,500 more than I could reach with the vokey sm4. So all in all this wedge is perfect for anybody.

Great feel and looks..... at first.
When I first took the club out of the wrapper I thought, this has to be the prettiest wedge I've ever seen. Great looks on the face with the satin. The back of the club looks really good especially with the Callaway logo popping out. But after a couple of weeks it looks like I've had it for a couple years. The face marks really easy and the sole is already starting to scratch up. It even looks like the grooves are starting to wear out. I had the Jaws Slate before and it doesn't look nearly as bad as this one so maybe the Slate is better for the Mack Daddy also.
Very soft feel of the face and a really nice sound when you hit it pure. If you don't mind the worn looks on the face these wedges are definitely worth buying.

I have always used the wedges that came with full iron sets, so this is my first forged "specialized" wedge. Played 3 rounds and 3 practice sessions. Very nice. Being consistent has been the most rewarding aspect of these wedges. The spin I gained was outstanding! Still dialing in my distance, but already totally confident and comfortable with them. I was able to add 1" and thicken the grip when I ordered straight from Callaway and that was really nice too. Never going back to "set wedges" again. VERY HAPPY with my purchase.

An excellent club for my approach from 110 yards out.
This club gave me a choice of clubs to make my approach from 100+ yards. Prior to making this purchase I was attempting to adjust the use of my 9 iron to make the shots. This club provides me with the distance and accuracy to get the ball up and hit the green.

For me it is very good for chipping 50 yards in...I'm 80 yrs young

Very good wedge
Really like this wedge, have ordered a few of them with the Project X Flighted 95 shaft. Really good feel, really good accuracy and versatility. I have been using the 56.14S and 60.14C mostly. Have also used the new Vokey SM5 and the Mack Daddy 2 for me is slightly better over all than the Vokey SM5. My only concern is the durability of the grooves. The micro grooves will wear away fairly quickly but that shouldn't be much of a problem. Will have to wait and see how the main grooves hold up.
