Forged Tungsten Wedge
The grindworks Forged Tungsten Wedge is forged from S20C carbon steel for that soft impact feel and extra bite on the ball. While many wedges on the market today and most classic wedges are designed with most of the weight towards the sole, our design features what we call a Hollow Gravity Chamber, where the back face of the wedge has been hollowed out to help move the center of gravity higher in the wedge.
We also designed the wedge with a thicker top blade section with tungsten weight forged into the head (making the weights invisible). This also helps bring CG higher in the head. We tapered off the top line in order to keep it pleasant looking at address. Wedges with lower CG in their design are not as stable at attacking the pin due to a higher trajectory which is also affected by the wind. A raised CG creates a powerful at the pin trajectory with increased back spin.
The grindworks Forged Tungsten Wedge also features a straight neck with a teardrop shape head, a trailing edge grind on the sole and heel relief for more workability and versatility. Attack the pin with confidence!

FORGED TUNGSTEN WEDGE DESIGN FOCUS
Without a doubt we wanted to design a wedge with a higher center of gravity in order to produce more stability, accuracy and spin when attacking the pin. In recent years, other brands have also implemented higher CG style wedge designs, but many of these designs included drilling unsightly holes or or adding visually displeasing weight inserts or screws.
As with our irons, we wanted to keep the design clean and simple yet somehow move a large amount of weight higher in the head. Our designer implemented a what we dubbed a Hollow Gravity Chamber, or a simple removal of weight from the lower portion of the wedge.
We then forged 20 grams of tungsten weight towards the top blade of the wedge and tapered off the top line to give it a more pleasing appearance at address. The tungsten weight is invisible to the eye which helps maintain the wedge’s clean look and achieve the higher CG we desired for more spin and control.
