TaylorMade Hi-Toe 3 Wedges Design & Features
The key design element of the Hi-Toe 3 wedges, as was the case in previous generations, is the shape of the wedge. It is much different to standard wedges you may have used before.
The Hi-Toe 3 has been designed to be much taller in the toe area and that shape produces a lower launch angle and generates more spin.
That is achieved by the additional weight in the toe of the clubhead, which has moved the CG closer to the middle of the face.
The face features RAW Face Technology, which helps impart maximum spin. The milled grooves cover the entire face and are sharper, narrower and deeper for a premium feel and performance.
The RAW face, which has milled ribs positioned between the full grooves, means that it will rust over time for an aged copper look from this soft 8620 carbon steel clubhead.
The Hi-Toe wedges are available in loft options from 50 degrees to 60 degrees and three bounce options. The Standard Bounce has 50, 52, 54, 56, 58 and 60 degrees available, the Low Bounce and High Bounce options have 58 and 60 degrees lofts.
