Biggest thing I noticed was a slight difference in feel compared with the original Milled Grind. The MG2 sounds/feels more solid, with less "click" at impact. It's a subtle change, but I like it.
The raw face with finish on the toe and hosel is going to take a little getting used to from a visual standpoint. I currently play a raw MG 52 and the MG2 52 looks a little weird to my eye coming from a full raw face. I'm sure it will be fine once I put the MG2 in the bag full time, however. Just something I need a little time with.
I got mine and love them. I like the drop and stop they have on approach shots. Also, i have seen several spin back and sideways on the greens. I've never been a player that spun wedges but with these I am seeing the ball do things I have not seen before. These will be a great addition to the bag. I have the MG2 50& 54 degree chrome finish and they look awesome too. Just ready to see the spin I get when the face rust!!!
@Hallsy24 some good responses here already but I'll throw my two cents in. I think a few of the guys above hit it on the head in terms of feel/sound, which for me is one of the biggest differences between MG2 and MG1. The MG2 feels MUCH softer, especially on full shots. The shape at address is a bit more rounded (to my eye) and there is a noticeable increase in spin. Granted, it's a new club with new grooves. But the spin is pretty remarkable. Didn't think I'd be a fan of the raw face, but it's growing on me. The contrast between the face and the rest of the club looks pretty sharp.
I was able to get 2 rounds in this past weekend with them and much like some of you have mentioned, they were definitely less clicky sounding that the original MG's. I like to use my 56 for a variety of shots inside 100 yds and have developed pretty good touch with it and thought that I was seeing results with the 56 immediately. Conditions in the Chicago area this past weekend were pretty soggy but I did not have any issues with the leading edges digging into the ground. If you're on the fence about getting these wedges, definitely try them out.
after hitting a handful of different types of shots through 2 rounds (full, pitch, flop, chip) I did not have any issues from the grooves digging into the ball and cutting them up and that is something i always worry about as i have seen buddies of mine tear apart covers with their grooves.
Been playing the 54 and 58 for about a month now. I practice every day and play at least twice a week, safe to say I've put them through their paces. So far no complaints, feel is great, spin is high. A month into daily use the black finish is holding up nicely and the face is well rusted. If I was really going to nitpick they could be a bit softer.
