which wedge to get

12 posts in this topic

To start off with I am a lefty

After doing some research the two companies that offer the widest variety of wedge options are Ping and Cleveland.  I play G15 irons but have no experience with Cleveland.  Can anybody recommend which wedges I should go with? I plan on trying to locate some Clevelands at the local shops but I sure I won't have any luck

Well they're not Clevelands or Pings, but the Nike VR Pro wedges are very good and relatively cheap if you can get last years model. I've been using them all season and couldn't be happier.

Nike VR pro is a terrific wedge. I am playing with last years model sw 56-14. Love it from all lies. The 1 caveat is I switched out the shafts. I use dg spinner but I use that on every wedge I have owned.

I'm not sure how you determined Ping and Cleveland offer the most wedge options when Scor, Vokey and Edel offer custom built wedges with multiple grind options

The ones that fit your game and feel right to you. Without more information, there's really no way anyone here can give an educated recommendation.

If you have a basic wedge game without a lot of hand manipulation, and a medium angle downswing, consider the Adams Tom Watson wedges. These are tried and true basic wedges, and come in a three-pack for about $100. You get a 52.08, a 56.12 and a 60.08.

I've tried the scor and wasnt a fan... Ive  had the opportunity to try Vokeys and know what they offer... With Ping and Cleveland I can get any degree wedge I want unlike with Mizuno where leftys arent offered much ... That's how it was determined ..

I havent even heard of the Edel wedges so thats something I will look into

This thread has a great discussion on Edel wedges (as well as bounce and other such sundry).

Not trying to discourage from looking at Ping and Cleveland, but Vokey WedgeWorks division is a custom shop for wedges and offers grinds that are different than the SM-4 you probably saw in stores.

Take a look at these. Not much has been said about them but I have the 52, 56, and 58 degree. Great out of the sand and tight lies.

Don't judge them by my handicap. Others I play with that have them love them and are decent golfers.
