Bridgestone Tour B XW-1 Wedge Review

The Bridgestone Tour B XW-1 wedge is a high performance wedge for the better player.

tour b xw 1 wedge

Introduction

Bridgestone has become one of the mainstays in the golf ball market over the last few years.  On the club side, however, they are less well known.  The new Tour B XW-1 wedge seeks to make an impression in the players market with premium looks, feel, and performance.

tour b xw 1 wedge

What first struck me about the Bridgestone Tour B wedge is how compact it is.  Players who game smaller irons and put a premium on looks will appreciate the dimensions.

In terms of shaping, the Tour B wedge has a leading edge that is soft but not overly rounded and a toe shaped to match.  As you can see in the pictures, Bridgestone is making these wedges available in a satin chrome finish and a black oxide.

Finally, the in the bag looks of the Tour B wedge are worth mentioning.  Without garish colors or “look at me” branding, these wedges still pop.  I particularly like the “Forged Mass” in the center of the club.

Sound & Feel

If the look didn’t tell you that the Bridgestone Tour B wedge is for better players, the feel will.  The “Forged Mass” behind the sweet spot makes pure strikes feel sensational, bordering on addictive .  When you miss the center, however, the feel is firm-bordering-on-hard, and it sounds clicky, in a bad way.

tour b xw 1 wedge

Performance

I started my testing of the Tour B XW-1 wedge hitting it into a net with a launch monitor.  Based on what my hands were telling me, I was sure that the results from mishits were going to be wretched.  When I went to crunch the numbers, I was very pleasantly surprised to see that I was wrong.  Mishits feel bad, but the results are very acceptable in terms of distance, spin, and direction.

One of the numbers that jumped out during my launch monitor testing was the spin.  The Tour B XW-1 comes with the DG Spinner shaft, and it makes a difference.  The shaft combined with Bridgestone’s “Parallel Milling Pattern” produced spin numbers that were several hundred RPMs higher than other wedges I tested again and very consistent.  Is 300 RPM the difference between a shot running out and spinning back?  No.  But if you want to see your shots stop sooner or spin back back, these wedges merit a serious look.

Out on the course, the Bridgestone Tour B XW-1 showed me the same things I’d seen on the monitor: high, consistent spin and superb performance on pure strikes.  I also got to appreciate the Tour Grind Sole .  This is essentially a “C Grind” with relief on the toe, heel, and trailing edge to make the wedge easier to open up.  As a player who hits everything low, I put this to frequent use and found it very effective.

For the better player, the Bridgestone Tour B XW-1 wedges are very fine short game tools.  The sole grind promotes versatility and shot making, and the DG Spinner shaft gives you a little extra zip around the greens.

First Look: Bridgestone Tour B XW-1 Wedges

Of all the companies exhibiting at last week’s PGA Merchandise Show, you could make a compelling case none was happier to be there than Bridgestone Golf. It had been three years since Bridgestone last participated in the show, and it was refreshing to see the genuine happiness anyone wearing the block-letter B felt to be back on the main stage.

Bridgestone made its share of news at the show , launching the e12 golf ball and announcing the re-launch of its signature ball-fitting program. The former is an interesting addition to its ball lineup, the latter an important initiative to reclaim some market share lost to Callaway and TaylorMade.

Not to be lost in the shuffle, however, are two bits of equipment-related news: one you can hit, the other you can try.

Updated Tour B XW-1 Wedge

I’ve given up trying to figure out Bridgestone’s club name/number system. Best I can determine is JGR stands for either Japanese Gravitational Rapidity or Joe Gibbs Racing, I’m not sure which. Bridgestone’s new wedge, which was announced last week at the PGA Show, is the Tour B XW-1. Oddly enough, that’s the same name as the wedge it’s replacing.

The new XW-1 is a premium Japanese 1020 forging (the 2017 model was 1025), and features three loft specific sole grinds (the 2017 models only had one grind) and something called Biting Rail Milled grooves for more spin.

“It’s a new micro-milling pattern,” says Zack Kupperbusch, Golf Club Marketing Manager for Bridgestone. “If you rub your finger across the face, you can feel in-between each groove the parallel mills that go across the face. They’re kind of like protruding teeth to keep the ball on the face a little longer to increase spin.”

tour b xw 1 wedge

Kupperbusch tells MyGolfSpy that Biting Rail Milled grooves add about 250 to 300 RPM in additional greenside spin compared to the 2017 model. “When you think about it, 300 RPM doesn’t sound like a lot,” he says. “But there’s only so much you can do to the face and stay conforming. You can’t really touch the grooves for the most part, but you can get creative between the grooves.”

“When you can get another 300 RPM by changing the micro-milling pattern, we’re happy with that.”

Sweet Sole Music

Bridgestone has never been a company to go crazy with wedge grinds – being a minor player in the wedge game will do that to you. With the new XW-1’s, Bridgestone is offering three unique grinds, dependent on loft.

The XW-1 line ranges from 50- to 60-degree lofts in 2-degree increments. The 50-degree wedge features what Bridgestone is calling the F-Sole.

“F stands for Flat, with very minimal grinding heel or toe,” says Kupperbusch. “We assume with a 50-degree you’re probably hitting a full shot – 100, 110 yards – and you’re not opening up the face. “

tour b xw 1 wedge

The 56-degree wedge features what Bridgestone calls the A-Sole (careful!), which is designed for sand shots or any other type of shot around the green where you’d want to open the face and get the ball up in the air quicker. The 52°, 54°, 58°, and 60° wedges all feature the M-Sole.

“M is for Multi-purpose,” says Kupperbusch. “You can see some heel-toe relief for versatile shot making for whatever you’re likely to encounter around the course.”

Depending on your tastes, you might find the new XW-1’s a tad busy. That’s the Japanese influence that exists in all Bridgestone clubs. There’s text to let you know it’s Biting Rail Milled, and there’s still the B medallion logo on the back, but it has been slimmed considerably from the protruding mass that was one the 2017 model.

tour b xw 1 wedge

“Some people loved it, others not so much,” admits Kupperbusch. “So we gave it a more subtle look this year.”

There is a functional reason for slimming down the B, as well. The protruding B in the 2017 model was all about adding mass right behind the impact area. A solid idea, but any kind of off-center hit left the wedge feeling a little less than crisp. Kupperbusch says slimming the B down a bit allowed them to spread the mass out a little wider across the face for a tad more forgiveness and better feel on off-center hits.

Price & Availability

Bridgestone continues to be price-aggressive as it vies for your attention in the equipment game. The new XW-1 wedges will retail for $139.99 which, when you look at wedge pricing trends, is pretty agreeable – especially when you’re talking about a 1020 forged wedge.

“We know our position in the market,” says Kupperbusch. “We’re a golf ball company first, but we make clubs for consumers who trust the Bridgestone brand. They trust our expertise, so we want to craft our clubs for that consumer.”

tour b xw 1 wedge

The XW-1 wedge will be offered in a satin chrome finish only (the 2017 versions were available in both polished chrome and black) and in right-handed models only (sorry lefties). The Nippon Modus 3 105 in stiff is the stock shaft, and the stock grip is the Golf Pride MCC in black. Custom shaft and grip options are available on Bridgestone’s website, some at no-upcharge, others with an upcharge.

You can view the wedges on Bridgestone’s website now , but they won’t be available for sale until March 4 th .

The Return of Test Drive

Bridgestone is also announcing the return of its online Test Drive program for its Tour B JGR line and for the XW-1 wedges. Bridgestone introduced the Test Drive program several years ago but abandoned it during the Angel Ilagan years. Now it’s back, and Bridgestone is hoping the program can help generate some momentum.

“It’s a relaunch of what we did a few years ago,” says Kupperbusch. “You go online, enter your credit card information and for $20 you get two-way shipping, and you get to try the clubs for 21 days on your own course or on the range, and see how you like them.”

tour b xw 1 wedge

The program is live right now, featuring Tour B JGR drivers, fairways and hybrids, as well as the JGR HF-1 and HF-2 irons (the XW-1 wedges will be added in March). Different lofts, shafts and flexes are offered, as well. For instance, if you want to demo the JGR driver in a 9.5 loft and a stiff shaft, Bridgestone will send you two drivers to test, and you can select which of the available shaft options you’d like to try.

When Bridgestone first introduced the program, there was nothing else like it in the industry, and it did meet with some resistance. But now others, including Direct-To-Consumer OEMs Ben Hogan and the new Sub 70 brand are using the same formula. No, it’s not the same as walking into Dick’s, picking up a stick and bashing it into a simulator for 5 minutes or so and looking at some data. But it does give you the opportunity to use the club for three weeks on your home course. It’s different, and as we all know, golfers are more than willing to embrace new and different, provided our grandfathers tried it first.

“Our goal is to get the product in people’s hands to try because that’s the problem we face,” admits Kupperbusch. “The Test Drive Program and through our new partnering deals with fitters like Club Champion and True Spec and some others, we’re just trying to get it out into the market.”

tour b xw 1 wedge

Bridgestone is fully aware its products aren’t widely available through typical retail channels, and fixing that problem isn’t simply a matter of doing a better job . It’s the Catch-22 for any challenger brand: retailers stock what people buy, and people buy what retailers stock. Since shelf space is at a premium, it’s almost always something from the Big 5.

That situation is improving for brands such as Wilson and Srixon, who are in more retail outlets today than, say, four or five years ago. Bridgestone, however, still has some catching up to do.

Even though these look like the side of a NASCAR, they are really nice fundamentally. I’ve not once met a japanese forged wedge that didn’t feel good, and I’m sure these won’t disappoint.

I’m glad to see that Bridgestone isn’t compelled to follow the price escalation that others are. They understand their position in the market and know that they have to come in at a more reasonable dollar to build interest. Hopefully they’ve learned some lessons through last year that will help increase their market share in golf.

Now, about that tire name…

I wondered what happened to their test drive program. I think that’s one of the best ways for Bridgestone to compete really. Glad to see it come back!

I’ll say this, that as a MGS tester of last year’s XW-1 wedges, if these are even equal to last year’s models, they’ll be top-notch. It looks like Bridgestone really took note to some of the comments about the B badge from last year’s blades. While none of the testers had absolutely any qualms about the aesthetics of the “B-stamp” in person, we all noted that our first impression of online pics is that we all thought we’d put-off by the design. Just like John stated, because Bridgestone isn’t a staple in golf wedgery, it’s likely that you’ll be able to steal these things 6 months later at 2/3 – 1/2 the price just as was the case with last year’s model. Even still, they’re starting point is lower than most premium offerings.. and I will say this.. Bridgestone sticks are nothing short of premium across the board and these will be no exception.

My XW-1’s are probably some of my most prized clubs at the moment.

David Doubleday

Too bad they’re not in black this year. Currently playing j15 black wedges. One of the best feeling wedges I’ve played. Perform well and I’d be curious to give the new ones a try.

First Look: Bridgestone Golf TOUR B XW-1 Forged Wedge Review

mm

I need to start off by saying that I have always been a fan of Bridgestone Golf balls whether it was the e6 line to even now, their TOUR B set. However, I have never used, practiced, or performed with Bridgestone golf clubs and I was super excited to get my hands on these wedges.

We’ve seen countless professionals on TOUR using Bridgestone equipment like Matt Kuchar, Brandt Snedeker, Fred Couples, Bryson DeChambaeu, and even Tiger Woods is using Bridgestone balls. But, how would us amateurs perform with a brand other than a Taylormade or Callaway?

A post shared by Bridgestone Golf (@bridgestonegolf) on Jun 21, 2017 at 2:19pm PDT

As amateurs, we usually sway towards golf equipment that has the most buzz.  I am one of those who doesn’t care much what the pros play because honestly, I am not a pro and I know that. I don’t need to grab the latest Callaway Epic driver or a Scotty Cameron putter just because I see it flashed around on Sunday.

While it may make me “look cool” on the course among my buddies to have the ‘popular’ brands we see Jordan and Rory playing, I know those clubs simply aren’t the right purchase for my particular golf game.  I urge us all to look and test out clubs from Bridgestone because if the rest of their line is anything like these wedges, we may have just struck gold.

First Impression

The TOUR B XW-1 wedges landed on my doorstep and after immediately opening it one word came to mind … sleek .  Bridgestone is offering the XW-1 in two finishes, and I received a 56 degree in Black Oxide and a 60 degree in Satin Chrome. 

Bridgestone TOUR B Wedges

These finishes are offered in the following lofts: 50, 52, 54, 56, 58, 60. Only offered in right-handed models at launch, each XW-1 wedge comes stock with the True Temper DG Spinner shaft and Golf Pride MultiCompound grip. 

What a perfect combination! 

“For anyone who thinks of Bridgestone as just a great golf ball company, the XW-1 wedges are a prime example of the insanely high quality of our clubs,” says Zack Kupperbusch, Golf Club Marketing.

“In a time where many OEM’s continue to cut corners by producing cast heads, Bridgestone Golf emphasizes feel through unmatched forgings and true innovations.”

Bridgestone TOUR B Wedges (3)

Bridgestone’s forgings are as premium as it gets, and the XW-1 is no different. Although  feel  is a vague and subjective category, eight late-season outings show the XW-1 to be crisp, soft and responsive, pretty much what you’d expect from a premium, Japanese-forged club.

Performance and Spin

After playing three rounds and putting these through five range/practice sessions, I can honestly say that these wedges match up very nicely against Vokey’s and RTX’s.

My greenside bunker game was on point during those rounds and my spin result was far better than the Callaway wedges I had been playing. I love how these wedges feel and my short game confidence is far better knowing I have a proper set of wedges.

A post shared by Bridgestone Golf (@bridgestonegolf) on Nov 14, 2017 at 6:05am PST

It looks as if the team at Bridgestone understand the importance of spin now that they have shifted from general swirled milling patterns to milled lines between grooves.  Now, the revamped new line of wedge  features parallel milled lines between each groove, which leads to more consistent spin on shorter backswing type shots, particularly around the green — which is key to scoring.

Price-wise the XW-1 is right in the ball park with the average price for a high quality golf wedge.  I have played sub-$100 dollar wedges and frankly, they didn’t stay in my bag.

A wedge is a club you score with; attacking pins and putting balls close enough for that sought after 1-putt par or birdie. I don’t know about you, but I like to put my money towards equipment that will get me the best result, and wedges often top that list.

The funny thing is that Bridgestone could actually charge more for these wedges and I would still be a customer. But right now, you’re looking at a SUPER high quality wedge that hits retail on January 3, 2018 with the True Temper DG Spinner shaft for $140.

Don’t think of Bridgestone as just “another” option for less experienced players because if you do, your thinking about your game the wrong way. My advice is to go visit a Bridgestone club-fitter in your local golf shop and try these wedges out before they hit the stores.

If you’re in the market for a new set of wedges, you shouldn’t look any further than the TOUR B XW-1s.

Bridgestone TOUR B Wedges (5)

And don’t get me wrong. I have tested many clubs over the years and there have been plenty I have never used again. But this time, I have found my forever wedges.

Bridgestone has not paid me one red cent to say this … I truly love these wedges!

And when you’re attacking pins and lighting up greens next season as a result, be sure to thank me on Twitter .

Bridgestone’s new TourB XW-1 wedges are “insanely high quality”

tour b xw 1 wedge

At the beginning of 2017, Bridgestone launched a line of ultra-premium golf clubs that it called “ TourB .” The family included high-priced equipment ranging through the bag; XD-3, XD-5 and XD-7 drivers that sold for $699, XD-F woods ($399), XD-H hybrids ($249), and X-CB and X-Blade irons ($1200).

tour b xw 1 wedge

Today, Bridgestone has announced a new addition to the line: TourB XW-1 forged wedges. According to Bridgestone, the wedges are made from 1025 carbon steel, have a teardrop head shape, a tour-grind sole, parallel face milling patterns to impart additional spin, and CG (center of gravity) that’s placed behind the impact area — rather than heel-ward as it is with many other wedge designs.

The company also says the wedges are “insanely high quality.”

tour b xw 1 wedge

“For anyone who thinks of Bridgestone as just a great golf ball company, the XW-1 wedges are a prime example of the insanely high quality of our clubs,” said Zack Kupperbusch, Golf Club Marketing at Bridgestone. “In a time where many OEM’s continue to cut corners by producing cast heads, Bridgestone Golf emphasizes feel through unmatched forgings and true innovations.”

Available in both Satin Chrome and Black Oxide finishes, the wedges (50, 52, 54, 56, 58 and 60-degree loft options) come stock with True Temper DG Spinner shafts, Golf Pride Multi-Compound grips, and will sell for $139.99 apiece starting Jan.3 2018. They will be available in right-handed options only.

Originally, Project X was known for low-spin steel iron shafts. However, the company might now be known for wood shafts. Denali is the newest line of graphite shafts from Project X. With the Denali line, the company focuses on feel as well as performance.

There are two profiles in the Denali line, Blue and Black, to fit different launch windows. Denali Blue is the mid-launch and mid-spin profile for players who are looking for a little added launch and Denali Black is designed for low-launch and low-spin. Both models are going to offer you a smooth feel and accuracy.

For a full in-depth review check out the Club Junkie podcast on all podcast streaming platforms and on YouTube.

Project X Denali Blue

I typically fit better into mid-launch shafts, as I don’t hit a very high ball so the Denali Blue was the model I was more excited to try. Out of the box, the shaft looks great and from a distance, it is almost hard to tell the dark blue from the Denali Black. With a logo down install of the shaft, you don’t have anything to distract your eyes, just a clean look with the transition from the white and silver handle section to the dark navy mid and tip.

Out on the course, the Blue offers a very smooth feel that gives you a good kick at impact. The shaft loads easily and you can feel the slightly softer handle section compared to the HZRDUS lineup. This gives the shaft a really good feel of it loading on the transition to the downswing, and as your hands get to impact, the Denali Blue keeps going for a nice, strong kick.

Denali Blue is easy to square up at impact and even turn over to hit it straight or just little draws and most of the flex of the shaft feels like it happens right around where the paint changes from silver to blue. The Blue launches easily and produces what I consider a true mid-flight with the driver. While it is listed as mid-spin, I never noticed any type of rise in my drives. Drives that I didn’t hit perfectly were met with good stability and a ball that stayed online well.

Project X Denali Black

When you hold the Denali Black in your hands you can tell it is a more stout shaft compared to its Blue sibling by just trying to bend it. While the handle feels close to the Blue in terms of stiffness, you can tell the tip is much stiffer when you swing it.

Denali Black definitely takes a little more power to load it but the shaft is still smooth and doesn’t give you any harsh vibrations. Where the Blue kicks hard at impact, the Black holds on a little and feels like keeps you in control even on swings that you try and put a little extra effort into. The stiff tip section also makes it a little harder to square up at impact and for some players could take away a little of the draw from their shot.

Launch is lower and more penetrating compared to the Blue and produces a boring, flat trajectory. Shots into the wind don’t rise or spin up, proving that the spin stays down. Like its mid-launch sibling, the Black is very stable and mishits and keeps the ball on a straighter line. Shots low off the face don’t get very high up in the air, but the low spin properties get the ball out there farther than you would expect. For being such a stout shaft, the feel is very good, and the Denali Black does keep harsh vibrations from your hands.

Overall the Project X Denali Blue and Black are great additions to the line of popular wood shafts. If you are looking for good feel and solid performance the Denali line is worth trying out with your swing. Choose Blue for mid-launch and mid-spin or Black for lower launch and low spin.

Bryson DeChambeau fired an opening-round 7-under 65 at Augusta National, hitting an impressive 15 of 18 greens in regulation in the process. Golf’s mad scientist’s play grabbed headlines and so too did his equipment. In place of the Ping i230 irons he had in the bag last week for LIV Golf’s Miami event, DeChambeau is gaming a prototype 5-PW set of irons from little-known direct-to-consumer manufacturer Avoda.

What is Avoda Golf?

Founded by Tom Bailey, also a Mike Schy student like Bryson DeChambeau, Avoda Golf is a direct-to-consumer golf equipment company that currently manufactures both single and variable-length irons in one model that are available for pre-order.

What irons is Bryson DeChambeau playing?

Per multiple reports, DeChambeau is playing a custom-designed set of single-length irons that incorporate bulge and roll into the face design. The two-piece 3D-printed irons were reportedly only approved for play by the USGA this week, according to Golfweek’s Adam Schupak.

Regarding the irons, DeChambeau told Golf Channel the irons’ performance on mishits was the determining factor in putting them in play this week. “When I mishit on the toe or the heel,” DeChambeau said. “It seems to fly a lot straighter for me and that’s what has allowed me to be more comfortable over the ball.”

What can we tell about the design of the clubs?

These days, it is a little hard to speculate on what is under the hood with so many hollow body irons. DeChambeau’s irons look to be hollow on the lower section as they do flare back a decent amount. That “muscle” on the back also looks to be fairly low on the iron head, but we can assume that is progressive through the set, moving up higher in the short irons.

A screw out on the toe is probably used to seal up the hollow cavity and used as a weight to dial in the swing weight of the club. From pictures, it is hard to tell but the sole looks to have a little curve from heel to toe while also having some sharper angles on them. A more boxy and sharper toe section looks to be the design that suits Bryson’s eye based on the irons he has gravitated toward recently.

What are bulge and roll, again?

Two types of curvature in a club face, traditionally incorporated only in wood design. Bulge is heel-toe curvature. Roll is crown-sole curvature. Both design elements are designed to mitigate gear effect on off-center strikes and produce shots that finish closer to the intended target line. (GolfTec has an excellent overview of bulge and roll with some handy GIFs for the visual learner)

What else is in DeChambeau’s bag?

Accompanying his traditional Sik putter, Bryson builds his set with a Ping Glide 4.0 wedges, a Krank Formula Fire driver and 5-wood, and a TaylorMade BRNR Mini Driver, all with LA Golf graphite shafts.

  • Jun 20, 2019

Got my set of wedges, can’t wait to get out with them. Today most likely won’t be that day as were under a flood warning and I haven’t checked yet but the range will almost assuredly be closed. May have to take them to the sim, which will be good testing anyways as I can compare spin numbers versus my current set. Have to wait for official word of the team I coach game being officially cancelled. Initial impressions though, just a nice clean wedge. Very impressed with the aesthetics. I’m going to take a guess at them outperforming my current gear, and it not being close, but I’ll wait to see some performance on course or numbers on the sim. I’m battling Photobucket and Tapatalk right now so having some pic posting issues, but Gman79 threw up a couple pics of mine in the Bridgestone Championship thread, including a close up of the face. I’ll be in with a review as soon as I can hit those bad boys!  

Hit mine for the first time tonight. Believe it or not, these are the very first ever brand new wedges that aren’t a part of an iron set that I’ve ever owned. I’ll start by saying that they were hit inside only, on a Sim. I’ve found that most iron/wedge shots are pretty accurate on this particular sim, both in distance and spin rate, but not with woods. There’s a lot to be learned from that but not as much as can be learned by hitting them from varying distances on a real course into real greens. I’ll also state that I add loft onto wedges. Sure, I can hood one and get distance with it if I want to, but that’s pointless. So you’ll see some very pedestrian distances here. My 14 year old was hitting the 58* the same distance as I was the 56* and I have him by +/- 10 mph on driver CHS. For review purposes I’ll only speak of the 52* and the 56* as these will be the ones that will stay in my bag. I can hit a flop shot with a 52* so anything more than that is gravy and I’ve generally only carried a 52* and 56* since my set GW is 49*. I’d have loved to take the clubs out and hit some shots into an actual green but since I’m about to build an Ark with the current conditions, that’s not possible. The one thing I learned from both the 52* and the 56* is that they’re very consistent. I hit about 12 full shots with each. I had a couple of mishits each that I won’t even consider but if I hit the ball clean there was one constant: they are extremely consistent. I was literally calling out the distance and the spin rate to an alarming degree of consistency at the end of our session. For example the 56* was going about 88 yards for me and spinning just shy of 7k. So I’d hit one with it towards the end and call out 89/6850. Usually I was within 2 yards and within 100 on the spin. Way more consistent than my swing would normally allow but again, it was the clubs and not me. The 52* was going about 102 yards and spinning right around 6500. It was as consistent as the 56*. Me calling out “103/6700” was generally right on the mark, give or take a yard or two and the same deviation in spin. I did not get the chance to test them much further than that. My middle son and I played a game where we could put the target (in this case it’s a virtual bullseye that’s probably 12’x12’) anywhere from 50 to 100 yards (winners choice). He’s better than I am at this game but I held my own tonight. I landed in the target about 30% of the time. And won about 60% of the time. It took very little time to feel like I was used to the clubs. A swing or two with each and I was comfortable with them and their performance. I will note that the spin numbers are lower than they would normally be. The Sim normally allows you to hit from a “tight” lie by hitting from the part of the carpet that is supposed to represent the fairway. Today it would only allow us to hit from the thicker part that represents the rough. No issues on distance, but it is impossible to really “clip” it from that and if you hit it either a fraction thick or a fraction thin it will 100% mess up your shot. I’ve also noticed in times past that there is about 1k RPM’s less imparted on the ball when hit from this area with wedges than from the lower mat. So based on that I would expect the 56* to put about 7800-8000 RPM’s backspin on a clipped shot, and the 52* to go about 7500 RPM’s. Comparisons to my current 52* and 56* wedges. I saw about 200 RPM’s more spin on each on average and the same distances. I think clipping them hard from a tight lie will bring on more tangible differences. I will state that the only new looking tour level ball (in white) I had in my bag was a ProV1x and by the end it had some road rash on it from the wedges. This wouldn’t have happened with my older ones so it definitely speaks to them biting into it a lot more. This in 25-30 total hard swings with them. I had a TourB RX that I was planning to use but it was yellow and the sim I was using doesn’t pick those up very well. I didn’t know that prior but I was getting some really wonky results warming up. Conclusion: insufficient data for me to call it. Early results, I’m impressed. I’d have felt better had I at least been able to hit from the short mat, in my experience that more closely resembles results you’d see clipping one on the course. Even so, 30 yard chips liked to stop PDQ. Hop, hop, bite all occurring within 2-3 yards. I need more info though. Once I have it I’ll report back.

So got these out last night at league and we got along much better last night. I'm not one to create alot of backspin on wedge shots so I hope for more of a hop and stop approach. Well these delivered last night! I had a chip in with the 56*, two shots with the 60* (full shots) that stopped within 2' of the pitch mark and ended up having 2 birdies last night at league. Currently I have a 52/56/60 set but am only gaming the 56/60 since my AW is 50*. I was bit hesitant with these at first but now that I've got some work in with them I feel much more confident. Paired these with the Tour B RX and I had a good round!

Was finally able to put these wedges in play yesterday. I received the 50, 54, and 58 from Bridgestone. The 50 took some getting used to for me, my current aw is 50 and is one of my favorite clubs. With the new 50 I was digging some before coming in contact with the ball, and was also leaking shots to the right. After using it on the range and a couple holes I was able to start hitting it well. The 54 was used a lot chipping and in the sand and felt great an performed great. The 58 was the most used and I am loving this club. I currently game a 60 and don't use it that often and this club just works better for me. I was chipping great with it, was able to do a few high flop shots with it and put some close to the hole. All the wedges were longer in length than my current MD3s I play and that took some getting used to but I did like that they were a bit longer as I am a taller guy. All clubs felt great when striking the ball and I was able open the club face with all clubs and still hit the ball great, all had some great stopping spin on full and shorter shot. So after a little range time and 1 round with them I am impressed and will hopefully become a little more confident with them. Sent from my SM-G975U1 using Tapatalk

... I really don't understand the decision to put TOUR B on the sole were it will get clogged with dirt and mud on virtually every shot.

Got a chance (read-it didn't rain) to get these wedges into play today. I like the look of them at address, and I was able to hit some good shots with them once I started to get used to the feel. My buddy and I were debating if they were lighter or heavier than the vokeys I was using, I'll weigh them when I get a chance, not that it matters much to me but it could to others. I'll end up re-gripping them pretty soon, I like a different, midsize grip. That's not a big deal though. I think all of us in the Bridgestone Championship got ours with stiff shafts and while that is not what I would have chosen it hasn't made much of a difference. I have a 50,54, and 58 degree as that fits my set gapping pretty well. I didn't use the 50 much since I didn't hit that distance out very often yesterday but when I did hit the others (mainly green side bunkers and 30-65 yards out) I noticed they checked up more than what I normally get out of wedges. I just got my Vokey's last year so it's not like they are old and beat up but I even got one to check and stop out of a bunker, that's just not something that happens for me very often. It ended up short because I thought it would roll out like normal and both of us had a "whoa!" moment and chuckled. So far I'm impressed with these and while I didn't hit any full swings they seem to fit with what I want them to do. Not bad for the first time in the bag.

I made my first visit to the range and practice green with three new XW-1 wedges and here are some initial comments. My XW-1 set is 50* (bent to 51*), 56* and 60*. Previous clubs are Apex CF16 AW, Cleveland CBX 54* and 58* wedges. I started on the range with half and full swings with each club. The range has flight restricted balls so it's difficult to get an accurate feel for yardage. However, one the pins was a full shot away for the 50* wedges so that was a good opportunity to compare. Apex AW has always been a 10 iron whereas the XW-1 50* performed more like a wedge. Higher ball flight and more spin. My spin comment is based how the ball landed. 56* wedges have always been a favorite for bunker shots and this is why I made the change. I'm playing 18 tomorrow afternoon and will try to practice some bunker shots before the round. The 60* wedge is a new experiment. The rationale is short chip shots around the green from thick bentgrass lies. I took about 20-30 shots by the practice green and was very impressed with the results. I'm not sure if it's the grooves but the stopping power, from thick and tight lies, was very noticeable. The real test starts tomorrow on the course.  

  • Jun 26, 2019

Dial those in partner, regardless of the format those will be important shots for both of us. So far I like them and hopefully the love fest continues. They do seem to check more on chips than I’m used to, and I dig that.

Damn, ya'll are making me jelly. I havnt got mine yet.....  

Did some more practice with these the yesterday. I am still struggling a little with full swing shots with these as they seem to dig in more than my current wedges but i am getting used to them. I then practiced quite a shorter shots and chips around the practice green and had good results. They have good stopping power and a good feel. Only a few weeks left to try and get them dialed in.  

  • Jun 27, 2019

My maiden voyage with the new wedges, on the course, was successful. Not sure if the previous wedges had rounded and dull grooves but the XW-1 stoping power is very impressive. Several 20-30 yard pitch shots with the 56* stopped within a couple feet of the landing spot. I had a couple of bunker attempts that didn’t go as planned. Oh well, it’s always good to know what shots need practice.

Now that my XW-1's have a bit of dirt on them, I can offer some feedback. My setup is 52/56/60. Previous wedges are Cleveland RTX 3's. Coming from those wedges which have the "V-sole" I found myself sliding under the ball a bit on chip shots until I got used to the XW-1's. These wedges also seem much lighter than my previous ones so it took a while to get a good feel for them. I think I prefer a heavier wedge, but there are options to fix that if it is needed down the road. The 52 is mainly a full shot club for me that will play in the 120 range. I was able to get it very high and it stopped almost immediately on each shot. I like what I've seen so far and hope to continue dialing this club in. The 56 has been a bit hot and cold. I've slid under the ball a lot popped it up about half way to where I wanted it to go and I've hit what I thought was good contact and the ball has seemed to rocket off the face and go twice as far as I was wanting. On full or 3/4 swings it doesn't seem to be an issue, it's more so just around the green. Hoping this is some sort of user error and it will correct itself going forward. I'm yet to use it in a bunker as most of ours are just dirt and rocks, but will be playing some nicer courses in the next couple weeks and will likely find some sand to give it a go. The 60 has been my favorite wedge so far. I've started using it a lot to chip after struggling with the 56 and it's been wonderful. I'm able to fly the ball close to where I'd like it to end up and the ball seems to hop a time or 2 and check pretty quick. It's easier than the Cleveland to hit flop shots with and could be a real weapon once it's dialed in. Still a work in progress, but for the most part I like what I've seen and look forward to getting more comfortable with them in the coming weeks.

Trmpt98 said: I love seeing different points of view when people write reviews. What shafts do you have in the wedges you received? I have the Modus 120's and I found the weighting to be a bit heavier than the Callaway MD3's I was gaming. I also ran into these clubs sliding under the ball but only when I opened the face a bit. It took me a couple sessions but I feel I can control them much better now. That 56 also has a different grind than all the others so I wonder if that is some of it. "A “Forgiving” Sole- Optimizes forgiveness with a heaver sole grind that allows the face to be opened up." Great write up! I look forward to hearing how they play for you. I'll get some good work in with them over the next 3 days (League, Outing and the THP gathering) so I'll have more to report back on next week. Click to expand...

Bridgestone’s new Tour B XW-1 wedges built with the better player in mind

Bridgestone has enjoyed a hot streak on the PGA Tour with players like Tiger Woods, Bryson DeChambeau and Matt Kuchar finding the winner's circle with the brand's ball. The company is now hoping to make inroads in the wedge department.

On Wednesday Bridgestone revealed the new Tour B XW-1 collection of wedges, a set constructed with better players in mind.

Screen Shot 2019-01-23 at 8.47.46 AM.png

“Low-mid handicappers are going to love the control and feel that our new Tour B XW-1 wedges deliver,” said Zack Kupperbusch, golf club marketing manager at Bridgestone Golf. “The combination of the industry’s most premium forging and our new Biting Rail Milled grooves provide unparalleled softness and optimum spin on a variety of short shots.”

The Tour B XW-1 series boasts three distinct sole configurations, each designed to optimize the types of shots played with that particular club. For example, the F sole is found on the 50-degree gap wedge, which the intention of improving turf interaction on full to mid-range approach shots for added stability at impact. The M sole, designed to be the series' "multi-purpose sole," focuses on providing versatility throughout the bag while maintaining control. The A sole is the line's forgiving club, with its primary intention to create consistent contact for the player.

The XW-1 also features Bridgestone’s proprietary Biting Rail Milled grooves. Rather than milled with randomized swirls or etched-in lines, a distinct pattern of four mini-grooves adds extra friction. leading to more spin on approach and greenside recovery shots. The series is premium forged from 1020 mild carbon steel to promote soft feel.

The XW-1 wedges are available in right-hand only with a satin chrome finish and come stock with a Modus Tour 105 stiff shaft. With retail availability beginning March 1, 2019, the street price will be $139.99 per club.

Bridgestone Announces New TOUR B XW-1 Wedges

(COVINGTON, GA)  –  Bridgestone Golf  – the #1 ball-fitter in golf, revealed today its new TOUR B XW-1 collection of wedges, its softest and highest spinning wedges ever designed for better players. The XW-1 Wedges feature Bridgestone’s proprietary, new Biting Rail Milled grooves leading to more spin on approach and greenside recovery shots.  Premium forged from 1020 mild carbon steel, the XW-1 Wedges provide the ultimate in soft feel better players prefer.     

“Low-Mid handicappers are going to love the control and feel that our new TOUR B XW-1 Wedges deliver,” said Zack Kupperbusch, Golf Club Marketing Manager – Bridgestone Golf.  “The combination of the industry’s most premium forging and our new Biting Rail Milled grooves provide unparalleled softness and optimum spin on a variety of short shots.”

The new TOUR B XW-1 Wedge series is designed with three separate sole configurations, each intended to optimize the types of shots played with that particular club. The F (Flat) sole is found in the 50-degree gap wedge, and intended to optimize turf interaction on full or mid-range approach shots providing added stability at impact for a more penetrating ball flight. The M Sole, or the “Multi-Purpose Sole” characteristic of the 52, 54, 58 and 60-degree wedges, focuses on providing versatility for all the varying shots one would hit during a round.  From hooded bump-and-runs to open-flange flop shots, the M-Sole delivers maximum controllability. Finally, the A Sole, or the “Forgiving Sole” offers supreme forgiveness in the 56-degree wedge, whether you’re hitting an explosion shot to get out of a steep face bunker, or pin-hunting from the fairway.

The XW-1 wedges are available in right-hand only with a satin chrome finish and come stock with a Modus Tour 105 stiff shaft.  With retail availability beginning March 1, 2019, the street price will be $139.99 per club.  The TOUR B XW-1 wedges will be available through Bridgestone Golf’s proprietary equipment demo program, Test Drive , and all Club Champion retail locations.

Types of Golf Club Wedges

Golf Wedge FAQ

Are there are different types of wedges you can use.

Golf Wedges

What are the four main types of wedges?

Wedges are a subset of irons used on shorter shots to the green. The four main types of wedges are the pitching wedge, sand wedge, lob wedge, and gap wedge. The sand wedge was the first golf club to be labeled as a wedge. However, most modern wedges aren’t labeled with the wedge types listed above and are only labeled with their loft and bounce angle instead.

What is a significant difference between the different types of wedges?

Two significant differences between the four wedges are the loft angle and the shaft length. The various wedge loft angles and bounce profiles are designed for all the different situations you can face during your critical short game shots.

What factors should I consider when selecting the loft of a wedge?

When selecting the loft of a wedge, you should consider the distance you want to hit the ball and the angle of the shot. The loft of a wedge will determine the trajectory of the ball and the distance it will travel. The higher the loft, the higher the trajectory and the shorter the distance the ball will travel.

What is a sand wedge, and how is it used?

As the name might imply, the sand wedge is designed to get you out of the dreaded sand bunkers on the golf course or other soft lies. The sand wedge has around a 56-degree loft and a higher degree of bounce compared to a gap wedge.

What is a pitching wedge, and how is it used?

A pitching wedge is used to loft the ball in a short high trajectory. It is used on the far outskirts of the green, usually for shorter distances not suited for an iron. The clubface sits at around 48-degrees, and it is the lowest lofted wedge with little to no bounce.

What is a gap wedge, and how is it used?

The gap wedge is designed to be used in distances between 50 to 100 yards. This makes it ideal as the right club for distances between the sand wedge and pitching wedge. A gap wedge has a loft angle of around 52 degrees with a moderate amount of bounce.

What is a lob wedge, and how is it used?

The lob wedge is used to hit over an obstacle or bunker at a sharp or high angle. A lob wedge is the highest lofted wedge and sits at around a 60-degree angle. The lob wedge is typically the highest lofted club in a set, as well.

How important is the bounce angle on a wedge, and how do I choose it?

The bounce angle is essential for wedges as it helps the club glide through the turf and sand. The bounce angle is the angle between the leading edge and the lowest point of the sole. The bounce angle you choose will depend on the type of turf you play on and your swing style. A higher bounce angle is better for softer turf and steeper swings, while a lower bounce angle is better for firmer turf and shallower swings.

What is the cost of a golf wedge?

Our golf wedges run from around $50 upwards to about $200 on average.

Do you have to carry all four wedges in your golf bag?

Some golfers may not have all four wedges. However, keep in mind that the different wedges are designed to get you out of certain situations that could otherwise cost you strokes. Many golfers will sacrifice some irons or even higher-numbered woods to fit more wedge options into a regulation 14 limit club set. Not having the right wedge could put you in a position where you cannot make an essential short game shot.

REVIEW: Bridgestone Tour B XW-1 Wedges

tour b xw 1 wedge

 One of the big features of the Bridgestone Tour B XW-1 wedge is the large raised B right in the sweet spot on the back of the wedge.  It places a good chunk of mass on the ball at impact.   Some wedges have moved to cavity back designs with perimeter weighting or low weight, these raise the weight to directly behind the ball.  The feel is noticeable how the mass is directly behind the ball.  You’ll also notice when you don’t hit the ball solid with the change in feel of being off-center.  The CG on this wedge is different than others and really liked the solid almost heavy feel of this CG.

tour b xw 1 wedge

The new Bridgestone Tour B XW-1 has a nice sole grind that will be useful for most golfers on most shots.  It isn’t extreme or outrageous, it is just a nice blend of heel and toe relief.  The camber is fairly flat, but edges are all blunted so they don’t want to dig too significantly on any shots.  The head shape is really nice behind the ball.  The teardrop shape isn’t too rounded on the leading edge and fairly straight transition off the hosel fits my eye.  I didn’t feel like I would blade it or have trouble getting under the ball either.

tour b xw 1 wedge

The Bridgestone Tour B XS-1 wedges performed very nicely on the course.  I can’t they did anything different compared to other wedges; they have good spin, accurate distance and nice trajectory.  I hit the shots I expected to hit and had very few misses with them.  The grooves and micro-grooves combined with the DG Spinner shaft mean these wedges have some serious RPMs.  It wasn’t off the chart, but consistent from many different lies.

Bridgestone makes the most underrated clubs on the market.  I’m regularly impressed by their clubs.  The Tour B XW-1 wedges are really good.  While the options might be simple, they are solid performers.  Hopefully they are available at more pro shops in 2018.  The new wedges come in less options which is both a positive and potentially a negative.  If you want a clean looking, solid feeling, good performing forged wedge, this is an excellent option.

New Wedge, Bridgestone’s Buttery’s Soft Feel Revealed at PGA

January 24, 2019

Bridgestone’s New TOUR B XW-1 Wedges Deliver Buttery-Soft Feel and Enhanced Spin Greenside

New biting rail milled finish grooves optimize spin and control greenside.

tour b xw 1 wedge

“Low-Mid handicappers are going to love the control and feel that our new TOUR B XW-1 Wedges deliver,” said Zack Kupperbusch, Golf Club Marketing Manager – Bridgestone Golf. “The combination of the industry’s most premium forging and our new Biting Rail Milled grooves provide unparalleled softness and optimum spin on a variety of short shots.”

The new TOUR B XW-1 Wedge series is designed with three separate sole configurations, each intended to optimize the types of shots played with that particular club. The F (Flat) sole is found in the 50-degree gap wedge, and intended to optimize turf interaction on full or mid-range approach shots providing added stability at impact for a more penetrating ball flight. The M Sole, or the “Multi-Purpose Sole” characteristic of the 52, 54, 58 and 60-degree wedges, focuses on providing versatility for all the varying shots one would hit during a round. From hooded bump-and-runs to open-flange flop shots, the M-Sole delivers maximum controllability. Finally, the A Sole, or the “Forgiving Sole” offers supreme forgiveness in the 56-degree wedge, whether you’re hitting an explosion shot to get out of a steep face bunker, or pin-hunting from the fairway.

The XW-1 wedges are available in right-hand only with a satin chrome finish and come stock with a Modus Tour 105 stiff shaft. With retail availability beginning March 1, 2019, the street price will be $139.99 per club. The TOUR B XW-1 wedges will be available through Bridgestone Golf’s proprietary equipment demo program, Test Drive , and all Club Champion retail locations.
