The FP4 Forward Press Wedge has a technically-sound, hands-ahead impact position built right in to automatically position you for crisp, controlled pitch shots that stop on a dime. And the best part is, you can hit these stroke-saving beauties with a simple, arms-and-shoulders swing. Say goodbye to ugly miss-hits and hello to a consistently sharp short game.
With the FP4, you will:
In a trackman-validated test, nine golfers who’d never used an FP4 before and whose handicaps ranged from 8 to 22, were handed a Forward Press Wedge and given the chance to pit it against the wedge they normally use.
Here’s a quick sampling of their results. With the FP4:
As we’ve said, the correct setup position is literally built into the club. To make absolutely certain you get the right amount of forward lean, we placed a Forward Press indicator on the shaft label. As you look down at address, simply move your hands left until you can no longer see the red bar, only the blue one. Your left arm and the shaft should now form a straight line all the way down.
The Forward Press Wedge boasts a quarter-inch of offset between hosel and leading edge which keeps your hands ahead of the clubface for pure, repeatable contact. Even if you don’t lean the shaft toward the target – as we’re all taught to do – The FP4’s Pro-Strike Offset ensures your hands are ever so slightly ahead of the ball. Additionally, its raised heel frames the ball for easy alignment and a solid, square look at address. You’ll see more of the clubface behind the ball – increasing your confidence as you stand over your shot.
The FP4 features an 18° bounce angle – That’s significantly more bounce than you’ll find on any big-name gap or sand wedge, which typically max out at 14°. More bounce at address means more bounce when you lean the shaft toward the target. And more bounce means more forgiveness when you hit behind the ball.
