  • Maltby Wedges

    So instead of sinking $80 to reshaft wedges with my iron shafts (kbs tour V 120x) I’m thinking of going through golf works and getting some Maltby wedges. Can get 3 for $300 which seems like a great price.

    I played rtx 4 last year and vokeys in the past, and I’ve only seen nothing but positive reviews in these wedges. KBS told me I should play my tour Vs in my wedges and this seems about the only cost effective way to do it.

    anyone play Maltbys? I’m an ok wedge player but I’ve never really liked any wedge better than the other.

    thanks

    Maltby Tour wedges and M grind are top notch.

    My buddy who plays to a low single had me build him 2 sets ( one for lush conditions one firm and dry)

    I play a 62* wide soled and it is money.

      Thanks Weirfan, Im actually thinking about either returning or selling my apex pro 19s and just picking up maltby ts1 irons so I can get x100 in everything. I just have to get past the fact that I’m not playing OEM clubs. I wish I could get fit for them though.

        From all reports the Ts1 are fantastic.

        contact Dan's custom clubs, ( he is a sponsor here) he fits Maltby stuff and is a one of the best fitters in NA.

            I’m not gonna sink $1000 into Maltbys I was having a moment today and yeah it’s not a wise choice to do that. But I just got the apex pros haven’t even hit them. It was a impulse buy on golf avenue $1000 for brand new set(except there is a few nics in a couple hosels) trying to figure out a wedge gapping for them. Maltby seemed like a good wedge to try that I can get kbs 120x but in them. Then I started looking at there irons. It I stopped. Lol

              We all have our "moments" LOL !

              I quite like some of the offerings from Maltby and Wishon, but unless you plan to keep them a long time, resale is very difficult to recoup some money, as these components are not $cheap anymore to buy brand-new.

              If these component companies' products solve a specific need that a major OEM doesn't then that's a different matter. A couple of "specific needs" that come to mind are the single-length offerings from Wishon, and offerings from both companies to build much shorter clubs due to much more versatile head-weight addition, and the ability to heavily bend irons and woods at the hosel if need be.

                  if you buy name-brand wedges for their name-brand cache, with the forward intent of selling them downstream , the shock is they hold less than 1/4 their original sticker-price when traded or sold on-line.
                  Reason being that everybody focuses on the condition of the grooves and sole wear on a wedge. Any wear, and their value plummets like an anchor. The only wedge that holds and exceeds its true value are the classics of yesteryear, like the fabled Wilson '58 Dynapower.

                  The advantage of the Maltby wedges is they work well, and they will be cheaper to replace on a bi-yearly basis.

                    Yeah you can just rebuy the heads that makes sense, I definitely like changing my wedges every year or 2. Almost the only club I buy brand new.

                    I just sent my Apex Pro 19s back today because they had chunks of metal missing on the hosel. So I guess that means now my "WITB" is empty!!!! Wife is gonna hate me the next month searching for clubs

                      I have a TSW wedge I'm building now. First impressions are that the fit and finish is as nice as you would get from most OEMs and a much cleaner look. The sole looks a little chunky but the leading edge sits nice and low. Very similar to a wider C grind or Dual Sole wedge.

                      They are lacking a bit in terms of "new tech" like face milling, microgrooves, hydrophobic coating etc.

                        Well I did it, I ordered 2 Maltbywedges, TSW 56 & 60 in my x100 flex. All in with taxes and a shipping it was $210 dollars so let’s see how these do!! I did not end up buying any other maltby clubs though.

                        brando.

                          Got a 56 degree Tour Grind. Really nice.

                          May get those TS-1 irons. Played Nobelton this summer with a guy who had them. Looked and sounded nice when hit. Thought they were blades.

                            Nice! Man I looked at the TS-1s for a while, ended up getting mint Tour proffered CBs with tour issue in them,so before spending 1K on the Maltbys I thought I’d give these ago, I’m still waiting for the wedges it’s been a week but I go to the post office every day to look.

                              To me, the basic shape and design of a wedge hasn't changed in decades. A wedge is only as good as the person using it. Matlby wedges are just as good as the wedges from the major OEMs but without the major OEM price. If I had to choose a Matlby wedge, the one with the DBM finish really caught my eye only because of its looks.
