Renegar Golf R12 Wedge

The Renegar Golf Wedges represent a paradigm shift in golf club design from the 1930's Sarazen sole to a complete 21st century re-thinking of design for your modern short game.  We liked Sarazen's bounce sole for bunker play, but we did not like its raised leading edge for the rest of short game play.  So we fixed it with our patented improvement.


Features: Renegar Golf R12 Wedge
 • Lower Leading Edge
 • Slightly Higher Center of Gravity (Relative to Impact Point/L eading Edge)
 • More Rear ward Center of Gravity (Relative to Impact Point/Leading Edge)
 • Multiple Bounce Sur faces
 • 18 years and 4 generations of evolutionary development from a leading professional golf club designer and engineer – this is NOT “garage tinkering”
 • Developed in the R&D labs – not at the factory “grinding wheel”
 • Proven where it matters – in the hands of great players on the golf course
 • Meticulously engineered, utility-patented, and CNC milled
 • Precision manufactured by the best sources in the world
 • Our DTS Tour Control short game shaft for better playability than steel 
 • Our short game specific grip developed with Lamkin for better control 
 • Fitted to the REAL demands of your modern short game
 • Works better for every golfer at every skill level in every playing situation

48 Degree “Pitching” Wedge – Our “48” is designed to be a Pitching Wedge replacement for conventionally lofted irons sets, or it will work well as a second or longer “gap” wedge. It is compatible with many contemporary irons sets that have very strong modern Pitching Wedge lofts of 43/44/45. Shots with the 48 will yield lower trajectory, reduced spin, and greater distance. This wedge is particularly effective for lower trajectory pitches and chips where less spin and more roll are desired. 

All Renegar Golf Rx12 wedges come standard with our Aldila-Renegar DTS Tour Control composite shaft that was developed specifically for wedge play – not for full swing irons play. And all of our wedges come standard with our Lamkin 3Gen wedges grip for better performance in delicate short game situations where maximum feel and control are essential. These components have already been custom designed and optimized for wedge play. No further custom shaft or grip choices are offered or available.

And, of course, all lofts of our wedges come standard with our utility-patented sole contour – providing better playability for every short game situation – and our CNC milled face and our proprietary V-43 Double-Milled grooves.

The general specifications for all lofts of our wedges include a standard length of 35.5 inches, an uncut shaft weight of 105 grams, lie angles of 63.5 degrees, and a total static weight of just over 450 grams. *Left-handed clubs are not yet available, but please look for an availability announcement in the near future.

Our New V-43 Double Milled
USGA Conforming Smaller Grooves Multiple Bounce Surfaces Renegar's lowered leading edge versus Titleist -Vokey
Our proprietary new smaller grooves are designed to provide you with the sharpest legal groove edges and a maximum number of edges (32% more) - while retaining maximum groove volume. Forged heads with "stamped" grooves and "cast-in" grooves cannot even come close to the same manufacturing precision as our "CNC Double-Milling" process.

The residual CNC mill marks created by this process (right at USGA limits for roughness) add significantly to our spin generation formula from less than perfect lies. Note also how our residual CNC mill marks are oriented in a "frowning" orientation to maximize friction for spin generation compared to traditional "smiling" orientation.

Renegar-Lamkin Wedges Grip

The Renegar-Lamkin Wedges Grip is designed specifically for wedge play with its one inch longer length for choking down on shorter, more delicate shots and its increased lower hand diameters giving the player improved feel and control in those same high control situations. The 3-Gen material gives the player ultimate in durability and all-weather performance. This grip also gives the player the benefit of two locations marked with circles for choking-down consistently to achieve inter mediate distances.

Aldila Composite Shaft

The Aldila-Renegar DTS Tour Control Shaft is designed specifically for wedge play. Unlike a conventional irons shaft, it has a firmer than normal irons tip section and a much higher flex point - giving every player better control of distance, trajectory, and spin. The firmer tip (with 2.3 degrees torque) provides the player with greatly enhanced trajectory control - essential for complete distance control in ever y short game shot-making situation.

History

The foundation of our wedge is the improvement conceived and developed by our founder and chief designer, Bob Renegar. This first Rx12 Renegar wedge is the result of 18 years and four generations of research & development – including two issued patents. Our product designs are not "garage tinkering" or "custom grinds" like you see elsewhere in other wedges. The Rx12 delivers a true patented competitive advantage that differentiates them from any other wedge, through playability,

Focus

Renegar Golf's Strategic Focus is upon the short game only. We are committed to the singular business strategy of "do one thing, and do it better than anyone else." Bob Renegar has become a legend in wedge design and now his talents are being put front and center with the patented Rx12 wedge line. Most other wedge companies have achieved true mediocrity with their wedge offerings – by simply offering different bounces on the traditional and relatively archaic Sarazen sole wedge first designed in 1930s. These manufacturers continue to suggest to golfers of the modern era that wedge technology really is not that important and true innovation cannot be achieved- we disagree.

Design

The Rx12 line is much more than just stories about custom grinds and big tour promotion budgets. Renegar golf's product line delivers a patented competitive advantage over every other wedge on the market. The Rx12 patented sole design gets the leading edge closer to the ground for more versatility on a wider range of shots from any lie. The bounce is there when you need and gone when you don't. The utility-patented wedge designs are the result of more than 18 years development. They are proven with a history of issued patents, broad usage in professional golf (including many professional Tour wins), robot testing and launch monitor player testing, and growing consumer acceptance. Cost is of little consideration to us when developing great products like these – they are the best, and the best usually costs a little more. Our first design objective was to create a sole that eliminated the traditional bounce sole by "thinking outside the bunker" from a design perspective. We understand that the great majority of short game play is NOT bunker explosion shots. It was this thinking that guided us to our patented sole that greatly improves the playing versatility of every Renegar wedge.

1 - Lowered leading edge Benefits:
  • Increased Forgiveness on "Thin" Shots
  • Better Play from Tight Lies, Down Hill Lies, Buried Bunker Shots - ALL Square-Faced Shots
  • Better Play for ALL Open-Faced Situations
  • Provides a Naturally Aligned Club Face at Address
2 - Slightly higher center of gravity (relative to impact point/leading edge
Benefits:
  • Increased Ball Spin Rates (from the Vertical Component of Gear Effect)
  • Reduced "Draw" Shot Tendencies
  • Better Energy Transfer on Center Hits
3 - More rearward center of gravity (relative to impact point/leading edge)

Benefits:
