XDS "No Shank" Wedges have the hosel behind the leading edge of the face by -11mm. This is called "onset" which helps prevent the chance of hitting the dreaded "shank."

XDS  Shank-proof Wedges

 

The obvious solution for shanking is to correct your golf swing, however some golfers simply don't have the time to get instruction or to practice a better hitting position. Easiest solution is the XDS "No Shank" Hybrid Wedges which positions the neck away from the face making it virtually impossible to shank the ball.

One other feature of the XDS "No Shank" Hybrid Wedge is the railed sole which has a very high concentration of weight to make getting the ball airborne very easy. Plus the rails help minimize surface contact with the ground.

Wrist Cock Release Point on Downswing

Tom Wishon shows Wrist Release on Downswing

1. Early Release means the downswing to the ball is started with the hands. Generally done by beginners or higher scoring players who score 90 +.
2. Midway Release means the downswing to the ball is started with some body movement before the hands start to uncock. Generally done by Intermediate Players who score 82 - 89.
3. Late Release means the downswing to the ball is started by weight shift in the legs, followed by the trunk of the body and finally the hands uncocking very near impact with the ball. Always done by advanced players who score 70 - 79.
