NEW CALLAWAY JAWS RAW WEDGES: TOTAL SPIN MACHINES

21 June 2022

- Aggressive grooves, new spin-enhancing raw face and weight balanced design -

Callaway has unveiled new Jaws Raw Wedges that take spin and control to all new levels, with a perfect blend of precise craftsmanship and industry-leading technology.

Created by legendary wedge designer, Roger Cleveland, Jaws Raw Wedges feature the most aggressive, razor sharp grooves in golf, now presented on a raw face for ‘one hop and stop’ spin into greens.

Callaway has removed the plating on the face which allows for rusting over time in the scoring zone, while maintaining a premium look throughout the rest of the clubhead. Removing the plating enables a more direct connection between ball and the face at impact.

The addition of Groove-in-Groove Technology, where milled micro-grooves sit at a 20° angle, also further promotes spin on chips, pitches and lob shots.

A new Weight Balanced Design gives enhanced feel and improved scoring performance with the Pitch, Gap, Sand, and Lob Wedges meticulously crafted to enhance their specific performance benefits.

Tungsten is also in a Callaway wedge for the first time ever, on the sand and lob wedges, to centre the CG position for perfect control and feel. Variable length hosels have also been engineered to control trajectory, while enhancing forgiveness.

The expansive line of 17 loft and bounce combinations includes an all-new ‘Z-Grind’ that Roger developed as a more forgiving shotmaker wedge. It is one of four updated grinds in the new family, available in two stunning finishes – Raw Face Chrome and Raw Black Plasma.

“It was also important we maintained a classic look with Jaws Raw, so developed heads with a straighter leading edge and a smooth hosel connection. This is something our Staff Professionals fed back to us, and we wanted golfers everywhere to also be inspired by this new Tour-level look,” said Roger.

Completing the premium package, stock shaft options include True Temper Dynamic Gold Spinner 115g (steel) and Project X Catalyst 80g (graphite), paired to a Lamkin UTx Charcoal Grip.

A women’s stock shaft option is available in UST Recoil (graphite) with a Lamkin Women’s Comfort Grip.
