6 Best Value Golf Wedges Under £75
We’ve once again rummaging in the Golfbidder warehouse, this time to find the best wedges for under £75.
There are so many different types of wedges and they can be many different things to many different golfers, we have spilt our list into two. First, three wedges are for better players, or those more confident around the greens, and then three wedges for those of us who need a little help in the shot game department, especially out of bunkers!
For better golfers and more confident wedge players:
- TaylorMade Milled Grind 2.0 SB Black
- Cleveland RTZ Zipcore Tour Satin Full
- Wilson Staff Model Tour Sole
And for when a little help is needed:
- TaylorMade Milled Grind Hi-Toe Raw
- Callaway Sure Out
- Odyssey X-Act Tank
Best for better players - TaylorMade Milled Grind 2.0 Black wedge
The key feature and where the Milled Grind family of wedges gets its name is the precise machine milling process which crafts the grind onto every wedge for better turf interaction and consistent performance.
Added to this, TaylorMade’s Raw Face Technology increases in spin, precision, and feel with only the face rusting over time. The rest of the head will keep its original finish.
Other features include redistributed mass to optimise CG location which allows better players to flight the ball for better distance control while a TPU Insert in the back cavity of the wedge provides vibration dampening and a solid feel at impact.
All these elements combine to make the Milled Grind 2.0 wedge a great choice for better golfers who are already confident around the green.
Available in all the usual loft with three different grind options, and two finishes – making sure you get the wedge which will help you play your best.

Best for your first wedge - Cleveland RTX Zipcore Tour Satin Full wedge
If you're scores are coming down you might be thinking it’s time to move into specialist wedge (and not wedges included in your iron set) then the Cleveland RTX Zipcore is a great first choice.
The RTX Zipcore was the first in the recent editions of the famous RTX wedge line with new technology delivering enhanced control, more spin, and unmatched durability.
The Zipcore, which gives the wedge its name, is a low-density core that sits at the heart of each wedge to shift the centre of gravity to aid forgiveness, spin, control, and consistency.
The grooves are another highlight. They’re sharper, deeper, narrower, channel away more debris, tighter together, and more durable thanks to a special heat treatment.
This specific Full Sole model is traditional when square but open the face up and you’ll get a little more bounce, perfect for precise bunker play but the RTX Zipcore is also available in a standard, low and high bounce model.

Best for premium value - Wilson Staff Model Tour Sole wedge
If you’re looking for a new set of wedges the Staff Model wedges from Wilson are a great place to start.
Designed alongside world-class tour players who gave their direct feedback on design and performance the result for better players is even more confidence in their short game.
All heads and lofts in the Staff Model wedges have machine-engraved grooves and score lines at a higher density for more consistent contact with the ball for maximum spin and control on every shot. But what we really love is the Tour Sole (also available in Traditional and Wide) which splits the difference and is perfect for nipping the ball off the surface with a shallow attack angle.
So, if you like to pick the ball off the surface and not take much of a divot or play on a dry links style course, then a Staff Model Tour Sole might be the game changer you’ve been looking for. But one of each of the three grind in the right loft and you’ll have a premium set of wedges to get you out of any grassy (or sandy) situation.

It's now time to look at some wedges which can make pitching, chipping, and bunker play a lot easier and your golf a lot more enjoyable.
Before moving on though, we do mention bounce as we go through the second half of the article. Understanding how bounce works and what bounce options you have will help you realise that bounce is actually your friend around the green, as long as you know how to use it.
Best for recovery - TaylorMade Milled Grind Hi Toe wedge
If you are in the rough around the green a lot, then the TaylorMade Milled Grind Hi Toe wedge will get you up and down more and more.
Immediately you’ll notice this wedge is not like other wedges. The toe area is stretched or expanded to give you more face area to hit, especially when you rotate it open to add loft when short-sided to the pin. Also, the grooves run all the way to the edge of the face, again designed to help maintain performance from any impact area.
Speaking of grooves, they’re TaylorMade’s ZTP RAW design which deliver high greenside spin, especially in wet conditions, thanks to their sharper, narrower, and deeper construction.
All these features combine to make this one of the most versatile wedges on the market.
So, if you play on a traditional parkland course where the rough around the greens is think and juicy or your course get a little wetter in the winter months then a Hi Toe wedge from TaylorMade might be worth considering.

Best for better chipping - Odyssey X-Act wedge
If you want to stop duffing, fatting, thinning your chip shots from the edge of the green then you have to try the X-Act wedge from Odyssey. Yes, Odyssey make wedges (well chippers really!).
What so good about it? A heavier 355 gram head weight helps ensure a smoother swing (to help with the yips) and to promote more consistent contact (to help with the dreaded duff).
The hybrid-like sole design improves turf interaction around the green, especially on tight lies, to help eliminate duffed and bladed chip shots. A single layer polymer insert provides soft feel and feedback to help you control your distance on longer and shorter shots around the green. Finally, two alignment stripes running the length of the club that make lining up shots easier for better accuracy.
The X-Act wedge from Odyssey. Is it a wedge? Is it a lofted putter? Who really knows, just don’t knock it until your try it! And try it if you just want to enjoy your golf more and lower your scores at the same time.

A wedge is a wedge, right? Well, not so hasty! Do you have a steep or shallow attack into the ball, is the sand at your local golf course soft or hard, are the fairways rock hard – or does it always rain where you live; is the rough long or short, what sort of grass is it, do you prefer to run the ball up, or throw it up high?
Wedges are the clubs used for the shorter and more accurate shots in golf. Approach shots, chip shots, pitch shots, bunker shots, lob shots to mention just a few. There are different types of wedges generally defined by the lofts they have.
