I've narrowed my searches to the following:
- Titleist Vokey (preferably black finish), love the esthetics and reputation, just don't love the price.
- scratch wedges
- Nike VR
Open to other suggestions, let me know what you think! Thanks
Vokeys are a well engineered wedge system. Most year groups have about 18 loft/bounce combinations, plus six different sole grinds.
That said, I have tried Vokeys before, and I just don't like the feel. There are no magic golf clubs - but there are clubs that work well for you.
You might try the Adams Tom Watson wedges. These have an established design - not much change year to year - so you can get a GW, SW and LW for about $100 as a boxed set.
In Cleveland, there's the 588 Forged model from 2012, which preceded this year's 588 RTX and RTX CB (cavity back) models. The Cle 588 Forged features 18 loft/bounce combinations, and the prices have been cut with the arrival of the RTX cousins.
Also, over a year ago Callaway reissued its Jaws model with conforming grooves. Some stores have a good mix in the racks.
Lots of wedges out there from a couple of years back - just look around.
