The Callaway Fusion Wide Sole lob wedge is the last in the discontinued Fusion Wide Sole iron set. The game-improvement features of the clubhead and the responsiveness of the face helps high-handicappers develop proper short game mechanics. The wedge, in regular flex, is still available from select Callaway dealers.

Head Features

Callaway Fusion Wide Sole irons are built with a four-piece design made of titanium. The 60-degree lob wedge includes a progressive offset and a modern version of Callaway's classic Bore-Through shaft technology. Its cavity is filled with a thermoplastic urethane material (SenSert insert), made to dampen vibration.

The club's sole has its own two-piece design with a Tunite weight insert which keeps the center of gravity low and behind the face.

Shaft Options

The Fusion Wide Sole lob wedge comes with the Fusion Wide Sole graphite shaft. The club was also fit with regular flex steel shafts from Royal Precision and True Temper. Both regular flex steel and graphite options contain a mid kick-point and torque made for players with controlled swing speeds of 80 to 100 mph, depending on mechanics. Stiff and Senior flexes are also available.


The Fusion Wide Sole lob wedge is a reliable club. Its wide sole and comfortable bounce gets shots up in a hurry. From the fairway, the Tunite weight pushes the head through impact with little drag. As a chipping club, the wedge is extremely responsive and checks the ball nicely from around the green and sand. While not a precision wedge, the Fusion Wide Sole is made with state-of-the-art game-improvement features necessary to help aspiring players develop the proper mechanics required to become strong wedge players.


Fusion Wide Sole lob wedges with regular flex shafts are still available through some Callaway dealers and on the secondary market. Check online auction sites and specialty golf stores for availability.
