The brand new Mack Daddy 4 Tactical wedges from Callaway, unveiled today, feature a visually striking and distinct new military green ‘raw’ PVD Finish, Black PVD Face and black medallions.
The Mack Daddy 4 sets a new standard for Callaway wedge performance by combining innovative technologies with premium components.
With heavy influence from tour professionals, the Mack Daddy 4s represent the finest collaboration yet between industry legend and wedge specialist Roger Cleveland, Callaway’s R&D team and the pros.
The Tactical delivers an aggressive look to match the wedges’ aggressive performance. The military green ‘raw’ PVD finish stands out on its own, and it accentuates the Black PVD face and black medallions.
The Black True Temper Tour issue 115 shafts with tactical labels and Tactical Lamkin UTX grips with green end caps complete the premium design.
Introducing the upgraded wedge, Roger Cleveland said: "Wedge design brings together many variables and we have carefully considered every element in the design in MD4 Tactical.
"Through a detailed and exhaustive process of working on look, shape, performance and feel we have created our most accomplished and distinct wedge ever."
Roger Cleveland’s tireless work on tour refining shapes, soles, grinds and camber led to a more compact shape, straighter leading edge, tighter leading-edge radius and slightly more offset, compared to MD3 wedges. With the tight radius, it’s easy to make clean contact on tight lies for maximum spin and control.
The MD4 wedges deliver such excellent control and spin thanks to innovative Groove-in-Groove technology. This technology creates Micro-Positive surface roughness, milled into flat parts of the wedge face, featuring three raised micro-ridges, extending the length of the hitting area, with micro-grooves between the ridges that help grab the ball’s cover to significantly increase spin.
A 16-groove configuration includes an extra ‘Nip-It’ groove near the leading edge for added control, especially on short shots. All Mack Daddy 4 Tactical grooves are also 100% inspected with a digital stylus and special software to ensure the tightest tolerance within the rules of the game.
The MD4 Tactical will be available in two of the Mack Daddy 4’s four sole grind options; the S and X grinds.
The S Grind features a medium-width sole with slight chamber at the
back and moderate heel relief to keep the leading edge low through
impact, promoting solid contact on open-faced shots.
The X Grind, meanwhile, is Callaway’s newest grind featuring a narrow, high-bounce crescent sole, with the low point near the front. It is excellent for moderate-to-steep attack angles and medium-to-soft course conditions.
