Hi Nicolai,

Great content. What wedge will get the most backspin? Consider the following: maximum friction is achieved at a spin loft of 52-54 degrees. With an angle of attack of -7, shaft lean of 5 degrees: 60 degree wedge would create spin loft of ~62 degrees and a 54 degree wedge would create a spin loft of ~56. Would the 54 degree wedge be the best to use to spin it? (Also, am I correct on my assumptions?)
