The Xe1 Wedge has piqued the interest of many golfers since its introduction on Golf Channel. No matter how odd or unique a golf club seems, we pride ourselves in providing valuable feedback on any club that may help you play better golf. With its unique design specifically tailored to make wedge shots easier for golfers who struggle from 40 yards and in, the Xe1 wedge can help any golfer who struggles around the greens find more consistency.

Key Features

The Xe1 Wedge utilizes a unique sole compared to more traditional wedges on the market today. Most of the weight in the Xe1 wedge is placed farther back in the clubhead, which helps eliminate thin shots.

The Auto-Glide sole of the Xe1 wedge is wider and shallower than most wedges, which helps it slide across the turf effortlessly on a wide variety of different lies.

With 65 degrees of loft in the Xe1 wedge, there’s no need to rotate the club open at address to increase the effective loft. Every shot comes out high and soft with minimal effort on your part.

Design and Technology

The Xe1 wedge is designed to make every shot from inside 50 yards easier to execute, and it starts with a rounded leading edge. Compared to other traditional wedges, which have sharper leading edges, the rounded leading edge of the Xe1 wedge limits the clubs ability to dig into the turf. This results in better contact more consistently, which will help anyone who struggles with solid contact hit better pitches and bunker shots.


Other, more traditional wedges are designed with thin soles. The Xe1 wedge utilizes their Auto-Glide Sole technology. This design offers more forgiveness in two ways. First, it further expands the margin-of-error, giving you a better chance of making solid contact. Second, the wider sole increases the size of the clubface, which provides more forgiveness on off-center hits.

With the majority of the club’s weight set two inches behind the clubface, the Performance Mass of the Xe1 wedge helps keep the leading edge from pointing up towards the ball. The more the leading edge stays down, the easier it is to avoid hitting it thin. This becomes incredibly useful on tight lies, which is a shot that even the best players are prone to struggle with. The Xe1 wedge takes what would normally be a terrifying shot for a novice player and makes in infinitely easier.

Most wedge shots require you to make some sort of adjustment with your stance, grip, or alignment in order to compensate for the clubface. With the Xe1 Wedge, and its 65 degrees of loft, you can set up like you would with any straightforward shot, and swing. The wedge does the rest of the work for you.


PROS

CONS
