Alien Golf has been around a while and we now have version 2.0 of the Roswell wedge, which is packed with unique technologies you might not have seen in other clubs.
The wedges have full face groove design for maximum spin, stabilising bars for forgiveness and consistency and a sole that is undercut and has rails incorporated into the design.
We take a look at what the wedge is all about, how it looks and performs and whether it is a good alternative to the bigger named brands.
