Selling Points: The club’s “reverse muscle” design enhances stability and trajectory control by positioning more mass in the top portion of the clubhead. The RM-21 also features “trapezoidal” grooves with 18% more volume than the previous model for added spin from a variety of lies and playing conditions. Two sole widths—standard or wide—allow players to fit themselves into the right model. The standard sole features a slightly thinner toe area for more versatility through the turf while the wide sole has a more consistent width for players who benefit from more dynamic bounce through impact.
Our Takeaway: Fourteen Golf’s been making beautiful, high-end wedges for the past 10 years and RM-21 appears to be the most advanced model yet. It’s worth a serious look if you’re in the market for new scoring clubs.
Fine Print: Standard sole comes in 42°, 45°, 48°, 50°, 52°, 54°, 56°, 58°, and wide sole in 56°, 58°, and 60° with Dynamic Gold or Nippon N.S. Pro 950GH HT steel shafts. Choice of nickel-chrome satin or non-plated black finish.
Bottom Line: $185
