Williams Sports, powered by Williams Formula One Team Technology, announced the introduction of its brand new GP 80 Wedge recently.
The GP 80 Wedge has been precisely created using CAD software to perfectly blend the size, shape, topline thickness, and offset from loft to loft and is cold forged from a special select 1020 mild carbon steel that provides a soft, but solid and consistent feel.
The wedge incorporates Williams signature, Formula One inspired, Densimet Weighting System. Densimet, the same material used to weight F1 racecars, is positioned toward the top of the blade to produce a lower piercing ball flight and better accuracy in windy conditions.
“This is a true player’s wedge,” said Michael Lee, President/CEO of Williams Sports. “The lower trajectory and higher spin rate it produces allows you to keep the ball down on your approach shot but still stop it on a dime.”
The GP 80 Wedge features a CNC laser milled face and grooves as well as a 360 degree bevel around the cavity. The bevel on the sole improves bunker performance and flop shots while the top bevel hides the thicker top line and gives the wedge a more classic look at address.
Wedges are available in 52, 54, 56, 58, and 60 degree lofts with either a Dynamic Gold or Nippon NS Pro 950 steel shaft.
