In this review, I’ll be taking a look at the Callaway JAWS Full Toe wedge.
The JAWS Full Toe builds on the Mack Daddy and original JAWS wedge released in 2019. It’s designed to give you versatile control on all wedge shots, including mid and full shots, flops, pitches, bunker shots, and chips.
This wedge features full face JAWS grooves for maximum spin potential, as well as a specialized C-grind and Full Toe shape for easier hitting.
How does the JAWS Full Toe wedge actually perform around the greens? How easy is it to use? Who is it best suited for?
Here’s what I’m going to be covering in the review:
Read on to find out what you need to know to make an informed purchase.
What are the reviews like?
Most hardcore wedge players tend to be picky with their grinds, bounce, feel, etcetera, so it’s difficult for any particular wedge to receive universal praise.
With that said, the Callaway JAWS Full Toe wedge has received very high ratings from ordinary golfers and professional critics. It has a 4.8/5 (96% recommended) score on the official Callaway store, a 5/5 on Global Golf, and a 4.9/5 on PGA TOUR Superstore.

- amazing spin potential
- impressive forgiveness
- excellent distance control
- great off tight lies
- premium impact feel
What People Don’t Like
- many find it to be too light
- not ideal for golfers who come in steeply to the ball
- hot face can sometimes be an issue
- no additional grind or bounce options
What are the features?
Offset Groove-In-Groove Technology
This technology, first introduced in the MD4 wedges, consists of multiple micro-positive ridges engraved into the flat face regions between the grooves. This creates a very large number of contacts points with the ball, allowing for maximum spin control.
The groove-in-groove technology promotes more spin and control on all shots, especially flop shots hit with the face open.
Full-Face JAWS Grooves
JAWS grooves are special grooves that are milled at 37° wall angles, which is right at the USGA limit. This is designed to catch as much of the ball as possible at impact, thereby increasing spin.
On the JAWS Full Toe wedges, the JAWS grooves extend over the entire face as part of a raw face, further increasing the chance that the ball will make contact with as much groove as possible.
Full Toe & C-Grind
The JAWS Full Toe wedge uses a C-grind which rounds the sole in the heel and toe regions. This is quite a versatile grind that can be used effectively for mid and full wedge shots, but its biggest strengths are open-faced shots like bunker shots and flops.
The C-grind is combined with a Full Toe shape which raises the toe peak, creating a taller and larger face area for easier contact.
Variable Weight Port System
The variable weight ports on the back of the club are circular and have different depths. The purpose of these ports is to move the center of gravity (CG) away from the hosel and enhance feel.
In addition, the CG is shifted higher in order to create a lower, more controllable trajectory.
The JAWS Full Toe wedge is offered in 54°, 56°, 58°, 60° and 64° lofts with bounces of 10° or 12°.
The stock steel shaft is the True Temper Dynamic Gold Spinner 115, and the stock graphite shaft is the Project X Catalyst. The stock grip is the Lamkin UTx. Custom shafts and grips are, of course, available.
The finishing options are black and chrome. For a limited time, you can order custom colours for the JAWS Full Toe in each of the weight ports and in other regions, and you can also add custom stamps.
If you’re interested, full information on the wedge, shafts, grips and their specs can be found on the Callaway website.

How does the wedge perform?
I’ll come out right away and say that the JAWS Full Toe wedge will give you some of the best, most consistent spin performance you can find right now.
As a matter of fact, it offers more spin than both the Mack Daddy CB and JAWS MD5. The JAWS Full Toe can easily deliver spin rates well over 10,000 RPM, depending on the length and speed of the shot.
What’s just as impressive is how consistent the spin is across the entire face; mis-hits produce RPMs that are nearly the same as center strikes. Moreover, spin is predictable.
As already mentioned, the JAWS Full Toe wedge uses the C-grind. This is a versatile grind that is ideal for general wedge play around the green, from bunker shots to pitches from the rough and tight lies. Indeed, the JAWS Full Toe performs very well in all these areas.
Two things to note:
- The face is hot, which can cause problems with carrying too far past the flagstick.
- The wedge with the stock shaft is on the lighter side, which can make it tricky for some golfers to dial in their touch and feel. It can also make getting through thick rough or sand more difficult without sufficient club head speed.
Because the C-Grind is a balanced middle ground between digging protection and creativity, Callaway makes it easy for golfers to game the JAWS Full Toe as the only wedge in their bag.
What about look, sound & feel?
Aside from the increased face area resulting from the high toe shape, the look of the JAWS Full Toe wedge is fairly traditional and there isn’t much to say in this regard.
The design is very similar to the JAWS and previous Mack Daddy models, with four medallion weight ports at the bottom of the head.
The wedge looks great at address, but the only thing I can say is that it’s more difficult to visually frame the ball because of the full-face grooves. It’s a minor drawback is more than made up for with Tour-level spin rates.
The Sound & Feel
The JAWS Full Toe wedge has a similar excellent feel to its predecessors — soft and muted — but with a flare of sharpness and solidness on top of it.
Turf interaction is generally fantastic, and the JAWS Full Toe’s C-Grind is designed to dramatically reduce toe and heel dig. However, because the bounce is on the lower side, golfers should be careful not to come too steeply into the ball as this can cause cutting or digging with the leading edge.
There is plenty of clarity when it comes to mis-hit feedback, but at the same time, the feedback is not overly harsh or unforgiving. The feedback mostly comes through feel, although the sound becomes a little more muted as you move towards the heel and toe.
Where should you buy this wedge online?
Callaway takes it a step further, offering the JAWS Full Toe Custom. This gives you thirteen different colour options in nine different zones on the wedge (including the ports and logoing) and allows you to create custom stamping at extra cost. You can do that here.
If you want to save some money, you can find discounts on this wedge on eBay.
The Callaway JAWS Full Toe is a versatile wedge that will appeal to a wide range of golfers — not only Tour players and lower handicaps, but also mid and higher handicaps. This is because the full-face design allows for good performance and spin on mis-hits, and the high toe increases confidence and forgiveness as well.
Overall, the JAWS Full Toe produces a ton of spin and delivers nearly everything you could ask for in a modern wedge.
Its tailored C-grind is suitable in just about any situation around the green, whether you’re in the bunker, rough or fairway. More than anything, the JAWS Full Toe wedge will help golfers hit Phil Mickelson-esque flop shots.
With that said, some people will be put off by the non-traditional face design and the limited bounce. I also would have liked the stock swing weight to be a little heavier because it would help with developing touch.
