I’m trying to find the true sweetspot on a wedge or any iron head.
- Am I correct in assuming that the point where the head balances is the sweetspot?
- Should the horizontal balance point be horizontally in the center of the grooves?
I tested this on a STi2 head, “P”. The head balanced approximately 1/10 of an inch from horizontal center, closer to the heal side. But I wanted a basic stainless wedge heads so I bought from that other, often lower priced, brand. Measuring from center of the grooves, the balance point was 1/4 inch toward the heel side.
Also, I suppose it makes sense that if I add weights to the hosel, or with a steel shaft, the shaft itself, that I’d be moving the COG to the heel slightly. Would I effectively be moving the sweet spot closer to the heel?
