Got an order in for a 919 HM Lob Wedge. I was contacted today to tell me there are no heads available for this club until the beginning of December. Either there weren't many lob wedges expected to be ordered, or, sales have been rather brisk. Hopefully the latter 😉

First time we've run out of a lob wedge - yes sales have been beyond brisk. The Hot Metal line generally has started with a bit of a flyer.

Good to hear that it has been so successful. Don't really need a lob wedge until the start of net season anyway :)

Well, managed to get a wee swish with the new lob wedge before dusk last night. As someone who has always liked the old R Series and R12 Series wedges, these Hot Metal wedges were a bit of a change. Having managed to get a Gap wedge and Sand Wedge when I bought my 900 HMs recently I was pleasantly surprised at the way these wedges worked. A Lob wedge was always on the radar. It turned out they were like hens teeth, so, one of the new 919 HM Lob wedges was the answer. Initial test says this will go in the bag straight away. Nicely balanced club, easy to use and with a soft ball it doesn't feel that much different from the old forged wedges I was used to. I can see why there has been a rush on the new 919 HMs, Vey nice indeed :)
