I had Edison 2.0 Forged Wedges in the bag for 6 rounds of golf.  They come from the innovative mind of Terry Koehler.  They combine years of research and development into a player friendly wedge.  These were tested on the golf course, in the Office by Carl’s Place Golf Simulator and on a Flightscope Xi Tour Launch monitor.

This is the definitive review of the Edison 2.0 Forged Wedge for 2023.

Better wedge play is key to lower scores.  No matter how accurate your irons are, you are going to need wedges during your round of golf for short shots, rescue shots, for pitches, for chips, for flops, for bump and runs, for sand shots, or for any shot inside of 100 yards.  There are only a few ways to elevate your wedge game: take lessons, practice a lot or find a better fitting wedge for your game.  The Edison 2.0 Forged Wedge is a better design which raises the weight in order to elevate your wedge game.

The Edison 2.0 Forged Wedges are the next evolution of wedges designed for better function in the hands of regular golfers.  For most this all starts with the sole.  Too many golfers don’t understand how the sole/bounce/grind of a wedge works in their favor.  The pros have all these cool grinds which are very specific to their swing and course conditions.  Unless you are going to have a warehouse of wedges and then understand how to use each one, you are going to get the most out of your wedge game.  The Koehler Sole has dual bounce which is high bounce in the front and low bounce in the back.  While it sounds too good to be true, I can tell you from first hand experience, it is legit.

The Edison 2.0 Forged Wedges biggest improvement over the previous version is the cavity weight. Terry moved the weight even higher and out toward the toe by carving out some of the beef below the equator of the cavity and getting it higher so that it is behind where many amateur golfers hit the ball on the face.  Many wedges you find have the CG in the wrong place.  By design it is simply too low and too close to the hosel.  Terry Koehler isn’t the only designer to recognize this, but he clearly and creatively moved the weight around the perimeter pulling it up and out, now even higher.  The 2.0 wedge has a more distinct cavity and layers of weight which appear more visible than it predecessor. It is still clean looking and smooth transitions in all directions.  The CG movement means better more consistent results at contact.  It also adds some forgiveness to the head.

Edison 2.0 Forged Wedges come in odd lofts.  This is unique and interesting to say the least.  This is on purpose because their lofts actually launch the ball lower than the comparable even number loft.  For example my 59* Edision launched lower than my 58* SM8.  This is because of the previous information I shared about the movement of mass in the head.  While lower launch might seem opposite of what amateurs want when they see pros hit the ball way up in the air, but again regular golfers find  better distance averages with lower launch.
I went 49/53/59 in the Edison 2.0 Forged Wedges to compliment my normal iron lofts and distances.  While the lofts are a degree different than normal, and 4* and 6* gapping was different; the results were spot on.  I did the online fitting program through Edison Golf and these are gaps/lofts they suggested.  They fill the 115/100/85 yard slots in my bag.  The 49* wedge is mostly used out of the fairway as a “gap” wedge.  It hit consistently into a tight window.  The launch was similar to a PW but even a smaller circle of dispersion.  The 53* really worked as the next “gap” wedge for me from about 100 yards.  This too has very controlled launch and excellent accuracy.  I was looking at numerous good birdie attempts.  The 59* is the 85 yards and in club.  It cut through the rough exceptionally well and hit touch shots very close to the pin.  I must say my wedge play was very consistent and accurate with these in the bag.

The Edison 2.0 Forged Wedge offers all the touches of a high end wedge.  The forged head offers a soft and solid feel.  The finish has more bead blast for a softer, duller finish which cuts down on glare. While some of the benefits of a forged head are in the feel; feel translates in confidence.  The more confidence you have in a wedge, the more likely you are to hit it well too. The KBS Tour wedge shaft is a nice weight and tight feel.  The stock Lamkin grip is a nice go-to grip for clubs.  Everything about these wedges say quality. 

The Edison 2.0 Forged Wedge surprisingly took a little time to adjust to compared to the original wedges.  The raised weight created some new swing tendencies that worked great on short shots, but needed an adjustment on long shots.  That “higher” cavity weight seemed to want to force the clubhead to point the face skyward.  Long shots wanted to go high with a ton of spin, but not carry the full distance.   At first this seemed counter to the design.  Once I learned to “drive” these wedges instead of “scooping” them I really saw them perform.  Initially it felt like the higher cavity weight wanted to slide the head under the ball easily.  For short shots this was helpful, but long shots required a tiny tweak and then WOW! amazing results with piercing high-spin shots.

The Edison 2.0 Forged Wedge is a perfect upgrade for the regular golfer.  Terry Koehler has been designing great wedges for years:  The Edison 2.0 is his best model to date.  The innovation and creativity to design a wedge for the non-tour pro is the reason these clubs perform so well.  While I might be a single digit handicap, I’m not even close to tour level wedge play.  These however raised the weight even higher to elevate my short game.  So unless you play on Tour, these wedges are for you.
