Rated 5 out of 5 by wagsit 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!

Rated 5 out of 5 by S Dawson 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...

Rated 5 out of 5 by E-golf 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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Trey 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.

This is a fantastic wedge! I saw an immediate improvement in my sand game. It's soft around the greens and long on approach shots.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Singledigitweekendwarrior Better than advertised lock up
From the fairway, one hop, stop and drop, no roll.
From the rough, one hop, release, second hop, then stop subtle roll out.
The above is consistent with every shot so you know what to expect and play it accordingly. Feel free to plagiarize the above Marketing tag lines.
The one knock I have which I wish I knew about is the clubs are so soft that they get knocked up with love taps from other clubs in the bag far more easily than the old Cleveland's I switched from. I would not sacrifice feel for a fix here, just they now live in a secluded padded living room in my bag instead of in the general population.
Only reason distance is average is that they fly the same distance as my old 50 54 and 58 which is perfect for my set.
Rifle 6.0 shafts also improved club and ball flight.
Couldn't be happier with the purchase though standard practice needs to be to out the golf pride grips with logo on bottom on custom order when specified.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Richard If I can get used to using a lift wedge it will be great. I do love it though
If I can get used to using it I think it will cut my score significantly. It usually stops quickly on the green. I just need to practice distance control. Good quality and the representative in Texas was great. Good service and enthusiastic .
