It’s not always easy to get out of a sand trap, but the best sand wedges definitely help. If you’re new to the game and haven’t found a wedge that works for you yet or looking to improve your games, you came to the right place. We researched some of the best sand wedges around to put together these sand wedge reviews to help you choose. Before we get into our picks, let’s take a look at some of the features you should consider when shopping.
Shaft Material: Almost all of our picks have a steel shaft, with one exception that uses graphite. The most important thing to remember is that the material has to be strong, so it won’t bend and will last a long time.
Hand: While all of the clubs we researched are for right-handed players, but don’t worry. Most of them are also available in a left handed version. Everything else is the same, it’s just made for the opposite hand.
Loft: This is the measure of the club’s angle, which controls the angle of the ball when you lob it out of a sand trap. Most of these come in range so there are other lofts available in all our picks.
Shaft Length: Most of these come in a standard height that can be used by anyone. There are some women’s clubs available, but the only difference is that the shaft is a little short for anyone petite.
Flex: This has to do with how stiff or firm the club is. The general rule is the faster your swing, the firmer your flex should be. That usually means that more experienced golfers should use stiffer clubs.
Warranty: Most of these clubs have a 1 or 2 year warranty but we did find one particularly awesome one that’s covered for a lifetime. It’s always good to know what’s covered under your warranty and what isn’t.
Now that you’re more familiar with the features to look for, let’s get into our product reviews. Here’s how it works. We put our top and budget picks first because they really show you the range that’s available. If you’re in a hurry, that’s the best place to start. Keep reading if you can, each of these clubs brings something different to the table. Alright, let’s get right to the good stuff and find out which sand wedge is the best.
