Callaway Golf Fusion Wide Sole Sand Wedge

By Jim Hagerty

Callaway Fusion Wide Sole irons included a 56-degree sand wedge (men's right-hand only). The game-improvement features of the clubhead and the responsiveness of the face helps high-handicappers develop proper short game mechanics and offers steel or graphite shafts. Though discontinued, the Fusion Wide Sole pitching wedges are still available on the secondary market. 
 

Body and Cavity Design

Callaway Fusion Wide Sole irons, including the 56-degree sand wedge, have 6-4 titanium body. The wedge is progressively offset and follows the rest of the set with its advanced version of Callaway's S2H2 Bore-through hosel. The modified cavity back contains the manufacturer's thermoplastic urethane insert, which adds comfort and balance and reduces vibration at impact.

Weighting System

The Fusion Wide Sole sand wedge has as large sole and game-improvement bounce to help the high-handicapper properly move the clubhead through sand and thick rough with minimal drag. The sole is fitted with a Tunite weight insert, which keeps trajectories consistent and center of gravity low.

Stiff Flex Shaft Options

The Fusion Wide Sole sand wedge is available in Dynamic Gold steel and the patented Callaway Fusion Wide Sole graphite shaft. Both shafts offer a stiff flex and a variety of lie angles (flat, upright and standard) to accommodate players with different body and swing types.

Benefits

Following the entire game-improvement spectrum, the Fusion Wide Sole sand wedge has nice feel and is comfortable from the sand, rough and fairway. It chips well and checks the ball nicely on the green. The wide sole has nice bounce and moves through the impact area swiftly. Overall, the wedge is extremely forgiving, providing the high handicapper confidence to develop a solid short game.

Retail Pricing and Availability

A Callaway Fusion Wide Sole sand wedge, sold individually, might be difficult to find new. Used clubs are traded among specialty dealers and liquidators and special- ordered from Callaway dealers depending on availability. Fusion Wide Sole game-improvement iron sets are still available at most golf outlets.
