Callaway Jaws Raw Wedges: Spin Machines
Callaway unveils new Wedge Jaws Raw that take spin and control to new levels with a perfect blend of precise craftsmanship and advanced technology.
Created by legendary wedge designer Roger Cleveland, Jaws Raw Wedges feature the most aggressive, eye-catching grooves in golf, now featured on a raw face for 'one hop and stop' spin on the greens.
Callaway has removed the face veneer that rusts over time in the scoring area, while maintaining a premium look on the rest of the clubhead. Removing the tackle allows for a more direct connection between the ball and the face at impact.
The addition of Groove-in-Groove Technology, where milled micro-grooves sit at a 20° angle, also promotes spin on chips, pitches and lob shots.
A new weight-balanced design provides better feel and improved performance. Pitch, Gap, Sand and Lob Wedges are meticulously designed to enhance their specific performance.
Tungsten is also featured for the first time in a Callaway wedge, on sand and lob wedges to center CG position for perfect control and feel. Variable length hosels have also been designed to control trajectory, while improving forgiveness.
The extended range of 17 loft and rebound combinations includes an all-new "Z-Grind" that Roger developed as a more forgiving kick wedge. This is one of four new grits in the new family, available in two stunning finishes – Raw Face Chrome and Raw Black Plasma.
“It was also important that we maintained a classic look with the Jaws Raw, so we developed heads with a straighter leading edge and smooth hosel fitting. Our pros told us about this and we wanted golfers around the world to take inspiration from this new Tour-level look.”, said Roger Cleveland.
Rounding out the premium package, stock shaft options include True Temper Dynamic Gold Spinner 115g (steel) and Project X Catalyst 80g (graphite), paired with a Lamkin UTx Charcoal Grip.
A women's version is available with a UST Recoil (graphite) schaft and a Lamkin Women's Comfort Grip.
