Specialist £109


Specialist have gone for an old style design here. The classically curvy forged head stands out from the competition – it features sharp, square grooves that promise control.


The clubhead is designed without offset making the leading edge sit tight behind the back of the ball. Combined with the clubs rounded toe this allows shots to be played more easily with an open clubface.


Our testers hadn’t heard of Specialist before our testing day but went away thoroughly impressed. If control is what you’re after this one came top of the class.


With more and more amateurs realising the importance of an impeccable wedge game, you can expect to hear a lot from Specialist as they gain a good reputation. Our Total Golf pro has one in his bag – what more proof do you need that this is a decent wedge?
