Callaway launch JAWS RAW wedges: the total spin machines

Callaway has launched the brand new Jaws Raw wedges, the total spin machines that guarantee the perfect blend of craftsmanship and technology.

Designed by famous wedge designer Roger Cleveland, the Jaws Raw wedges (£169 Steel, £179 Graphite) feature razor-sharp grooves, now presented on a raw face for ‘one hop and stop’ spin into greens.

Callaway has removed the plating on the face to allow for rusting over time while maintaining an incredible appearance throughout the rest of the club. Removing the plating enables a more direct connection to the ball 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.

The new weight balanced design gives an enhanced feel and improved scoring performance with the pitch, gap, sand and lob wedges. Tungsten is also included for the first time ever on the sand and lob wedges in order to centre the CG position for perfect control.

Variable-length hosels have also been engineered to control trajectory while enhancing forgiveness. The long line of 17 loft and bounce combinations includes an all-new ‘Z-Grind’ that Cleveland developed as a forgiving shotmaker wedge.

It is one of four updated grinds in the new family, available in two stunning finishes: the Raw Face Chrome and the Raw Black Plasma.

"It was also important Callaway maintained a classic look with Jaws Raw, so we 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 Cleveland.

Completing the package are the stock shaft options including the True Temper Dynamic Gold Spinner 115g (steel) and the Project X Catalyst 80g (graphite), paired to a Lamkin UTx Charcoal Grip. The women’s stock shaft option is available in UST Recoil (graphite) with a Lamkin Women’s Comfort Grip.

In terms of the Grind options, the Z-Grind suits shotmakers who want to open the face around the greens, whereas the S-Grind fits a variety of swing types and is better for players who prefer a square face.

The X-Grind suits players who use a steep angle of attack and finally, the W-Grind is the widest sole for players who need the most help and forgiveness. For more information, visit eu.callawaygolf.com
