Daddy Cool: The New Callaway Mack Daddy 2 Slate Wedge Reviewed

Legendary wedge designer Roger Cleveland set to work on delivering another top design in the form of the Callaway Golf Mack Daddy 2 Slate Wedge. But has he delivered? In a word, yes; in another word, OH YES!

The Mack Daddy 2 Slate Wedge features a tour shape and feel thanks to feedback from Callaway Tour players, making it an unparalleled scoring club, we well as having increased surface roughness and an aggressive groove pattern for incredible amounts of spin and control.

Technology-wise the Callaway Golf Mack Daddy 2 Slate Wedge has a stunning slate finish that oxidises over time for a distinctive, highly-attractive look which reduces glare from the sun. Better spin and control is easier to achieve when wielding this wonderful golf club, and laser- milled micro grooves increase surface roughness for more friction with the golf ball. The 5V groove pattern features 39% larger grooves that provide 25% more spin from the rough. The added spin is designed for superior control and aggressive shot making into the green, no matter the lie.

So what about sole grinds you ask? Well the standard sole grind has some heel relief and the straightest leading edge of the three sole grind offerings. Perfect for the regular golfer, this is the most conventional wedge that performs well in firmer conditions.

C Grind: Relief is ground out of the heel and toe, enabling the face to be laid open while effectively reducing the bounce angle. This very versatile grind allows for proper contact and maximum spin and control.

U Grind: Inspired by short game wizard Phil Mickelson and the same version he has been using since the 2013 Masters. This grind increases the dynamic bounce angle (actual bounce of the club when the ball is struck) without increasing the static bounce angle. The unique sole shape and rounded leading edge allows the golfer to get under the ball and hit high, soft shots.

The Callaway Golf Mack Daddy 2 Slate Wedge is one of the best on the market right now. It works to give you better control on the green and instils confidence in the player. And at the end of the day, a good performing golf club is what really counts.
