Nike Engage Wedge
The Engage is available in three options - Dual Sole, Toe Sweep and Square Sole. A bold geometric sharp feature on the back of the club-head is the first thing you notice and it's quite 'bulky' to be brutally honest, particularly in the dual sole and square sole variations.
The overall look of these wedges are funky, but bulky and are likely to appeal mainly to the younger golfer or the true Nike stalwarts. We found the feel somewhat on the heavy side and the sound at impact a little 'clicky'. That being said, the extra weight does offer something that will aid rhythm and tempo in your approach shots. The Toe Sweep is superb for the higher handicap player and aids recovery shots out the rough and greenside bunkers tremendously.
One of the best priced wedges on the market currently so that is a definite plus. Even better deals now with Nike hardware being discontinued.

Nike Engage Wedge Detailed Review
Design & Appearance
The Engage is available in three options and they are the Dual Sole, Toe Sweep and Square Sole.
A bold geometric sharp feature on the back of the clubhead is the first thing you notice and it’s quite ‘bulky’ to be brutally honest, particularly in the dual sole and square sole variations.
Another feature is it’s rounded sole, which gels with the ground at address…speaking of address, when looking down at address the clubhead does seem to have almost too round a shape and not quite as elegant as the Titleist Vokey SM6 Wedge , but then again Nike is focused more on a funky exciting look in comparison to elegant and classy.
The Dual Sole basically offers two surfaces, one is used when addressing the ball with square face and the second is when the clubface is wide open…Rory McIlroy gave his input here and basically the Dual Sole has allowed more versatility around the greens.
The Engage Toe Sweep has a wider toe and narrow heel supposedly to enhance ‘snagging’ in thick rough. The square sole is primarily aimed at the higher handicapper who primarily hits any shot with a square clubface, even around the greens.
Each of the Engage wedges have a raw finish and Nike’s X3X milled grooves, which have more volume and sharper edges than previous Nike models.
Control / Feel
The sound at impact is not the best we’ve ever heard and it’s almost a bit ‘clicky’ and you feel as though you’ve literally hit the ball and not ‘pured’ it most of the time.
Having tested all three variations they all felt reasonably good through the turf although the best of the three in terms of this point was the Toe Sweep.
Also due to the center of gravity and movement of weight in the head the clubhead does feel fairly heavy when swinging and this could be a positive for some by allowing you to control swing speed and tempo a tad easier.
The square sole when used on full shots is decent and actually allows you to squeeze a few extra yards out of each shot if necessary due to the muscle & cavity behind the clubface.
The Toe Sweep, to be fair, was impressive. It allows the better player to hit just about any shot from any lie due to it’s wider sole towards the toe section of club-head.
We tested it off hardpan, thick rough, tight fairway, variety of bunker sand mixes and it came to the party every time. The Dual Sole was fair and got the job done.
