Playability

It excels after your worst misses—versatile for its size, and composed enough to get the ball up, out and onto the green; pretty easy to play with an open face, especially from the sand; the wide sole seems composed enough to snip the ball off tight, firm lies.

Cons

Way too big for many testers' tastes; leading edge can be grabby on chip shots, and troublesome in wet conditions; length, direction and spin rate seem less consistent than the top wedges tested.

Bottom Line

More of a battle-axe than a classic blade, the RM-22J sits between Fourteen's flagship RM-22 and its super helpful H030. The size and shape can soothe shaky hands, while the design is versatile enough to help mid-handicappers extricate the ball from sticky situations.
