The Takomo Skyforger wedges provide great feel and versatility for a price that is hard to beat.
Takomo Skyforger wedges consist of S20C carbon steel to provide golfers with a soft feel and great trajectory on every shot. Are the wedges worth buying over similar iron sets today?
Takomo Golf has some of the best-selling iron sets on the market currently, and for good reason. They provide a great amount of playability with great quality and a low price.
Takomo Golf has recently decided to expand into wedges with the new Skyforger wedges made from the same steel as their iron sets.
What Takomo says about the Skyforger wedges:
“Skyforger wedges provide a soft feel, versatility, and fantastic precision around the green.
“The Skyforger wedges are forged from S20C carbon steel with progressively tapered blade thickness and are designed for players who are always looking to control their trajectory.
“Higher lofts have more weight on the top of the blade to promote more spin and better height control, while lower lofts have more weight at the bottom of the blade to make full shots easier to execute.”
