Snake Eyes 685BX wedges
By Dominic Pedler - July 2010

Snake Eyes earned their reputation for their sumptuous forged wedges in the early Nineties, and the 685BX continues that tradition now with advanced materials and the latest manufacturing methods.

Specifically, the heads of the 685BX wedges are fluid forged using a soft 8620 carbon steel in an 800-ton force forging process that creates both a pure feel and increased durability due to the tighter compaction of the metal.

The wedges have extra-large milled box grooves (9% greater than any previous Snake Eyes wedge, by way of the expanded groove width) which amateurs can continue to enjoy until at least 2024. Meanwhile, CNC milling ensures perfect flatness across the face and increases the friction between the club and ball.

Finally, the tour-influenced sole grind provides relief in both the heel and toe (removing material to allow the blade to sit flush to the ground when rotating the head open or shut to alter the effective loft) for excellent versatility in a variety of conditions.

Available in a choice of chrome or black anti-glare finishes in lofts of 52°, 54°, 56°, 58° and 60°, priced at £89.

The 685BX wedges come standard in True Temper Dynamic Gold shafts – though as Snake Eyes is distributed through custom fit experts Golfsmith Europe, a large range of shafts, grips and personalised grind options are available.
