The new Z TP wedge features the new Z grooves which have 10% more volume than TaylorMade’s Y grooves. This larger volume helps prevent grass, mud or moisture affecting the shot while sharp edges are designed to provide more spin. The teardrop head has large cavities at the back of the club which channel impact vibration and offer a soft feel. The smoky PVD finish is designed to reduce glare.
Visually little has changed from the rac wedges but performance wise there are clear differences. The new Z grooves consistently produced masses of spin which proved particularly helpful on a dry test day. The teardrop shape of TaylorMade wedges has always looked great behind the ball and the smoky finish adds to the classy appearance.
