What's your wedge game?

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 

I'm looking to get some new / used wedges over the holiday season.  I made some investments this year with a new iron set and an rbz driver.  Looking to tone down the spending and grab a 56 and a 60 this winter.  I hear alot about the Vokey's and some of the Cleveland's.  What do you guys use?  What's the best?

Vokeys are always great.

 

I actually have the Taylor made xFT wedges.  I absolutely love them.  They have a thin top line so look great at address, not to mention they play amazing.

 

I have a 50, 54 and 60 in them.  My 50 I just picked up in great shape used at roger dunn for 30 bucks.  They also have a changeable face on them.

 

These are them

My personal preference is the Bobby Jones wedges by Jesse Ortiz.  I play the "older" models, and haven't tried the newer ones.

I've played the new and the old.

 

The new have a pleasing grind made for versatility - Jesse calls it a "J" grind. Fine wedges with forgiveness and heft to quiet the hands.

 

I have some SM4 Vokey's - I've found the M grind on the 56-11 and 60-10 to work very well in all conditions for me.

I would suggest going to a place to "test drive" the your future wedges before purchase. The choices are very personal just as a putter that fits your eye.

I use a vokey 60, every hole I miss a green. I love it. I hardly ever use anything else. My sand and pitching wedge are part of my ping iron set. I tossed in the UW the last two rounds but only tried it twice. I can't complain about pings. They work very well.

Today I ordered 4 Taylormade ATV wedges. I tried them at a local club and hit about 100 balls from buried lies, sand, lush fairways and greenside pitches and chips. I thought these clubs were awesome and far superior to my old Cleveland wedges. ATV stands for all terrain versatility. My summer golf in Maine is much different than winter golf in Florida which have very different conditions. The ATV is ideal for my situation. Suggest you try them

I have recently purchased vokey sm4 52/56 with 8/10 bounce. Upgraded from 5-6 year old Cleveland and tm atv wedges. Impressed so far with workability and spin, but most the solid feel and look at set up. Wedges are super personal and you have to consider how they feel at full shot, pitches and the tricky flops and little bumps. Sm4 worked a treat for me all round
