After a 20 year hiatus from the game I've really started to get back into it, playing as much as my schedule will allow. I want to get a set of wedges and need some advice. I see some cheap wedges at the big box sporting goods stores from $30 to $50 each. Then there are the higher end wedges that start around $80 on sale (Cleveland, Callaway, etc.). I've also seen a 3 wedge set from Adams at around $100 and finally plenty of used wedges at Callaway pre-owned.
I've purchased some fairway woods and a driver from Callaway pre-owned and was quite impressed (in fact, they looked like they were barely used). But should wedges be bought new? Is their a big difference between the big box cheapy wedges and the higher end ones I mentioned? Or could I go Callaway-preowned? I can get a 52, 56, and 60 in average condition for about $150 -
