Now they're not everyone's cup of tea, but golf chippers can be a great club to have in the bag if you're struggling to get that delicate touch you're looking for with a wedge in your hands.
They're also a great club for senior golfers, who may have lost a bit of mobility and a touch of feel. So if you keep chunking wedges around the greens, maybe on of these chippers could be worth a try.
Odyssey X-Act Tank Chipper
By using Tank counterbalance technology in the X-Act Chipper Odyssey have been able to quieten your hands through your chipping stroke so that you make better contact with the golf ball. The X-Act sole design will eliminate poor connections with the golf ball especially on tighter lies for improved ball striking.
Odyssey have used a polymer insert for the face insert to ensure a soft feel for long and short greenside shots.
To make alignment incredibly easy Odyssey have used their Hi Def Marxman alignment system. A SuperStroke chipper grip has been used to further stabilise your wrists and hands through impact, and also allow you to get your hands into different positions so you can utilise the versatility of the chipper.
Fazer XR2 Chipper
The XR2 chipper offers a different way of playing the short game around the greens. Those tricky delicate shots seem more achievable by this innovative chipper. The chipper is designed to be used with a putting style pendulum stroke which provides more chips which stay on their intended target lines.
It has a wide sole for cleaner turf interaction and optimum head weighting, with 37 degrees of loft to give you more shot-making options. It is fitted with a firm steel shaft for less flexing and a soft grip pro-line style grip for comfort and control.
Ben Sayers XF PRO ANTI SHANK Chipper
Anti shank design removes the heel of the club from play. The hands forward design encourages a successful technique. Central channel weighting offers optimum control and feel. 37 degrees of loft encourages controlled lift and roll.
Wilson Prostaff Chipper
The Wilson Prostaff Chipper has been designed to be more effective around the greens than the more lofted clubs in the bag. Wilson have used a club face with the loft of around an 8 iron that when used with a putting stroke will pop the ball up and get it running out on the green. This club will certainly add more consistency to your short game and will frustrate your fellow golfers.
Acer XK Chipper
The Acer XK Chipper combines the loft of an 8-iron with the weight and lie of a putter. The ultrawide contoured sole glides across either the rough or the close cropped apron surrounding the green. Gooseneck, over-the-hosel design increases the effective face area and eliminates the possibility of shanking the ball like with an iron.
