I was also a huge fan of the Hi-Toe wedge and the 60 went straight into my bag. The V shaped leading edge was very versatile and felt so good from tight lies and thick rough. I loved how the leading edge sat so flush to the turf and it really gave me confidence to be aggressive around the greens, no matter what lie was presented to me.
The only issue I had with the Hi-Toe was the lack of options to kit out the bottom half of my bag as they were only available from 58˚-64˚. That said, it’s no surprise that TaylorMade have now extended the line to include 50˚, 52˚, 54˚ and 56˚ options.
The Hi-Toe theory is that it moves the centre of gravity higher for lower launch and more spin. The higher lofted wedges (56˚-64˚) have what TaylorMade refer to as ‘full-face scoring lines’ meaning that the grooves cover the entire face, right to the tip of the toe which helps with better contact when playing out of the thick rough and bunkers.
The new models from 50˚-54˚ will have ‘traditional’ scoring lines but the key technology throughout the Hi-Toe range comes in the sole grind options.
TaylorMade have introduced three different grinds across the Hi-Toe family with a standard sole on the 50˚-54˚, a four-way wide sole on the 56˚ while the 58˚, 60˚ and 64˚ have the familiar channel-cut ATV mid-sole with two different bounce options.
