Chris Voshall, Senior Club Engineer
One of the keys to a good wedge game is controlling your spin rates theres no gain in making one pitch stop dead if the next one rolls out. On the shorter shots, were more likely to miss the sweet spot high on the face which is a cause of inconsistent spin. The S18 is thicker higher into the blade, which evens out the spin rates on those common miss-hits.
