588's used. RAW so that you don't have to be concerned with defects in surface. A little steel wool scubbing pad and they look newly RAW

I have all 3 of the copper wedges in mint shape. 52, 56, &60. Let me know if you still need them. I am looking to sell all 3 as a set.

The Classics are a mature model, so Adams doesn't have to recover any R&D, and spends little on marketing. The Classics Three-Pak gives you a 52.08, a 56.12, and a 60.08 for about $100 total. If you're a basic wedge player - don't do a lot of exciting hand and set-up manipulation - these may be the wedges for you.


Also, take a look at the Cleveland CG15 and CG16 models. These have the TRAction (tour reflex action) wedgeflex shaft - flexible tip for more spin on short shots - and a firm butt section to keep the launch a bit lower for control. Golf shops have the 15 and 16 models down about $70 each these days. I play the CG14s with TRAction shaft, and really like them. The Cle 588 Forged from last year also have a next-gen TRAction-like shaft, and now have price breaks on them.


Every OEM has thousands of never-been-hit wedges a year or two old that you can have for well under $100 each.

I traded in two cleveland wedges lol a 52-12 and 58-8 to get another Cleveland 588   52-8... And love the 52-8...   did this at Golfsmith...   and then also picked up two Macgregor Tourney wedges,  a 56 and 60 degree...  i dont know the bounce on them, and they are not marked either, but they work pretty nice...


If money is not a issue, I'd go with Cleveland's 588s or Vokeys...

I still like my Cleveland 588 REG Gunmetal wedges 51°, 57°, 64°. I use the 51 degree gap wedge the most: for full shots into the green, for pitching, delicate stuff too. The 57 is the sand wedge. And the 64 is really a specialty club if you will. High flops, out of deep green side bunkers, and full out 10< yard "balloon landings".

I'm curious about cavity back wedges vs blades.  When I got my cavity back irons I liked them and went ahead and ordered the full wedge set too.  Will most people generally play blades for wedges even if they use cavity back irons?

Club designer Ralph Maltby has a couple of good links which discuss wedges. These might help answer your questions:

I am really digging the new Cleveland wedges. They made the leading edge a bit less rounded than the ones i have, and they really look nice standing over them. I think i am sold on my next wedges, just need to get them outfitted with some KBS golf shafts.

It may just be me but I hated the sm4s I bought a 56-52 and I lost 10 yards and they both went the same distance. Before that I hat the Cleveland cg14 and killed them. I'm on to the nikes now

What irons are you playing? I was going to do the same thing except most "game improvement" irons have cranked lofts the average pitching wedge is 44-48. On gi irons the pitching wedge is 44 so if you get a 52 you have a 8 degree gap. Which is what the gap wedge is supposed eliminate I would recommend getting 50, 56, 60. Just for better distance gaps and anything Cleveland, I have heard good things about the Mack daddy wedges, mizuno wedges, and of course vokeys.
Good luck
