Time for new wedges...recommendations?

27 posts in this topic

Hello everyone,

Currently have some knock off cleveland wedges and they are starting to show age (chips and dulled grooves). Had them since high school, so I figure it's time to get a new wedge set. Most likely a gap (50-52 degree) and a 56 degree sand wedge. I'm around a 12 handicap (and getting better) and have what I think is a great short game. I'm 6'4" and left handed and plan to get them custom fitted, so used wedges aren't really an option.

I'm not loyal to any specific brand, so that doesn't matter to me.  I'm going to try a bunch of wedges at a demo day in my area next week and I am going to shop around a lot. Just wondering what everyone has/has tried and likes/dislikes and where I should start looking. Any feedback would be appreciated. Thanks!

Rich

-edit-

Forgot to mention that great short game = great on shots <25 yards. Shots from 100 to 25 yards is probably the weakest part of my game. I know custom fit wedges will help.

When I wore out my last set of Vokeys I went looking for some new wedges also, and stumbled across the Macgregor VIP wedges at my local GolfSmith. Real, forged wedges for $79 a piece? Bought 3, (52, 56, 60) had had 'em bent 3 up, and have loved them ever since. Softer feeling that the Vokeys but gobs of spin, to the point I leave white stuff in the grooves on full shots.

And I like the dark finish, which has held up remarkably well so far (40 plus rounds).

Just FYI.

I am also a 6'4" lefty.  I bought my first set of vokeys when I was a sophmore in high school.  I replaced two of them this year with more vokeys, extended half an inch.  I played a few rounds with a cg15 56 and didn't really like the look of it at address.  My guess is this thread will turn into another titleist vs cleveland, but I recommend something that gives you confidence behind the ball.

I would just try out as many as you can. I have some Vokeys which I really like but I don't have the right intervals I want and I don't like the look at address, personal preference. I really like the Cleveland CG15's at address and in how they feel so I have a custom set being built right now with the same specs but a lot less price wise..lol. For wedges a lot of the brands will play well so go by what looks and feels good to you. If you feel confident with what you have in your hands you will play better with them.

Personally I use Vokey's I'm about 6' 2" and they are incredible if you have great touch, another great option would be the Cleveland wedges, I really liked the Cleveland Zip Groove series I feel like those are some very solid wedges as well.

Thank you for the replies everyone.  I'm excited to get out there and try them out. I'll just be happy when I can hit the green consistently from 100 yards, which is way better than what I do now.

I will second the nike vr wedges. I have the 56 and 60 degree and love them.

Scratch wedges FTW!!!

+1, I love mine. If you're looking in that class of wedge though, the Miura wedges deserve a look as well. For OTR wedges though, you can't go wrong with either Titleist or Cleveland.

I also like the cleveland wedges although due to monetary restraints I only own the CG12 and CG14 models

My 2 new cleveland wedges are coming soon a CG12 50* GW and a CG14 56* SW.


So Ill have a 50-56-60 all cleveland and i really like them.
