“The new Mack Daddy CB Wedge is a cavity back design built to take the guess work out of your short game, with enhanced forgiveness, control, and tons of spin for more consistency around the green.
“You’ll have the confidence of an iron with the control of a wedge, thanks to the deep cavity back, slightly larger head and thicker topline.
“Two sole grind options for better consistency. A full sole in the lower lofts creates easy, iron-like turf interaction. The modified W Grind in mid and higher lofts enhances bounce for more forgiveness out of bunkers and thick rough.
“Our proprietary JAWS groove delivers precise edge sharpness on every groove, for maximum grip and spin from all types of lies. Lofts 46° through 52° have conventional grooves, and lofts 54° through 60° have full-face grooves.”
