    Spot on. Should be done for every iron in the bag.

    I am guilty of not doing this often enough.

    As does Dan, when we build a set we make sure we triple check every spec and our digital machines are calibrated often. We also have an analog one to compare to. Our specs are very tight.

    So you *didn't* have your Pro check them ?

    100% as I check them.

    Certainly not unusual to find these sort of numbers. I basically check and correct every iron that enters my shop and to find 2*out is not that out of the ordinary. Should it be this way - not a chance.

    I quite often hear - I hit these 2 clubs near the same distance. Out of spec loft is almost always the answer.

    My retrofits as well as all my builds go through a very thorough inspection prior to leaving my shop. If your set came out of a box, chances are they have quite a few errors throughout the set.

    Wedges tend to take more of a beating imho ! Not surpised they were off just had 2 of mine checked at GT 52* was 50* 56* was 55*, as stated earlier should check Forged at least once a year.My 2 cents

    Calibration is fine - verified regularly. We are a Taylormade fitter and require proper specs for fitting.

    How Confident Are You That Your Wedge Specs Are Right?

    When I was fitted for my Ping G400 irons, I decided to order the A wedge also - what should be a 50 degree wedge. I played with it last year and enjoyed the fact that it was an extension of my other irons - same head shape, offset and shaft, etc. But I never liked pitching around the greens with it - offset head and thicker topline. So, I bought a new Cleveland RTX-3 gap wedge this year - 50 degree. For my first 6 rounds, while I loved the shape when pitching around greens, I found I had lost almost a full club in distance, when compared to my G400 A wedge. So, I asked my Head Pro at my course to bend it to 48 degrees - try to recover the lost yardage without buying another stick. He gave it back to me before my round Saturday morning and explained that it was actually set at 52 degrees - he bent it to what it should have been - 50 degrees. And yeah, I now hit it as far as my G400 wedge.
    So, I had my Vokey SM7 54 degree checked - 55 degrees / and my Mack Daddy 3, 58 degree - actually almost 60 degrees. They are now bent to what the specs call for.
    I know that clubs manufacturing is now a commoditized business - but I never realized that my wedges were off so much. I know my G400's are OK - I was fitted at Ping and TXG built the set. But off the shelf - buyer beware.
