Edison Forged Wedge Review
The Wedges You Should Play if You're Not on Tour
I had Edison Forged Wedges in the bag for 7 rounds of golf. They come from the innovative mind of Terry Koehler. They combine years of research and developtment into a player friendly wedge. These were also tested head to head against Vokey SM8 wedges on a Flightscope Xi Tour Launch monitor.
This is the definitive review of the Edison Forged Wedge for 2022.
The Edison Forged Wedge is about proper 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 Forged Wedge starts with the sole and then moves to the cavity. 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. The cavity is still very 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.
The Edison Forged Wedge offers all the touches of a high end wedge. The forged head offers a soft and solid feel. 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 Forged Wedge is perfect for the regular golfer. Terry Koehler has been designing great wedges for years: Eidelon, Scor and now Edison. These are clearly 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 level of my short game to a new height. So unless you play on Tour, these wedges are for you.
