New Wedges, thoughts?

25 posts in this topic

I am looking to upgrade my short game play, so I am considering purchasing new wedges..

Anyone have any recommendations?

Mizuno, Cleveland, Titleist, or anyone that I may have missed..

Right now I'm liking my friends Titleist wedges, but I'm hearing tons of great stuff about Mizuno..

Any light that could be shed would be greatly appreciated..

I think Scratch is the best on the market...they have both cast and forged wedges.

Outside of Scratch... I think Mizuno is the best forged and Cleveland is the best cast.

I vote Mizuno and Titleist. Have never had a Scratch in my hands but I'm intrigued.

Mizuno over any other brand, and honestly, it's not even close..

I completely disagree... to me it seems as if pretty much every company out there has stepped up there wedge designs. Many now offer custom grinds and more variety in lofts. Cleveland and Titleist still have the BEST selection, but Callaway, Mizuno, Tour Edge, Ping and other companies all offer some damn nice wedges these days.

If you have the money there is NO question that scratch is one of the best around, and offers a great selection in grind and loft, and of course has a custom shop as well. Wedges are sooooo personal that it is YOU who must decide what YOU prefer, and anyone who says one brand is vastly superior to all others is completely full of

Im sound financially, money isn't an issue, I could go to a Roger Dunn shop and get "sold" a set of wedges, but I would rather listen to fellow golfers and see what thye have to say..

So I'm eagerly awaiting some more opinions..

Oops, I should have used green font. I was pretending I was someone who owned a Mizuno club.

Have a look at the Nike VR forged wedges, I have my eye on these when I upgrade later this year. I have tried the Vokey wedges (not this years model) and they are good too. I hear lots of good things about cleveland wedges but when I looked at them in a store they just didn't feel good in my hands, which was surprising because I am a big fan of cleveland golf.

Titleist Vokey Design Spin Milled

Those are pretty low bounce options... I would probably go higher... Maybe 14 and 8. Vokey's are probably one of the better looking cast wedges but I just couldnt get used to the click of them.

I play the 09 SM Vokeys and love them. They are great off the fairway and around the greens. They absolutely shred ProV1s and give you so much spin. I also would recommend Cleveland CG12s. They are about equal, but I just loved the classic look that Titleist makes.

Titleist Vokey is the only way to go. If you can get them all to your 9 iron length including your pitching wedge. It helps you keep all the same swing and tempo through your scoring clubs. You will be amazed.
Currently I have 48 200 series vokey
09 spin milled tour chrome 54.11 bent to 53.10
09 spin milled tour chrome 58.08
all have Project x satin finish shafts to 9 iron length and no matter which one I pull out I'm on auto pilot.

Good Luck

I have to agree with the '09 Vokey Spin Milled wedges. Just picked up my new 56.08 and that club is SWEET! I'm ready to change out my old Vokey 52 and Cleveland 60. They do shred the ball, wow.

    • This is a totally reasonable approach.  Thought I'd throw in my method for this as another option. I hold the club sticking straight away from belt buckle or so, parallel to the ground, with my right hand.  Then, with my hand splayed out a bit (not crazy stretch or anything, but not fingers touching) and flat, I choose an angle to hold my left hand, place the handle in the "right" position, so resting on the middle section of my pointer finger, resting on or a touch towards the wrist from the bottom knuckle of the pinkie finger.  Then wrap the fingers onto the handle, then roll the hand towards the handle to a comfortable spot. For me this method gives a consistent grip, and I can control strong/weak just by the angle of my left hand before I place the handle.  If my left hand plane is perpendicular to the ground, I'll get a super strong grip, too strong.  With the left hand plane parallel to the ground, I'll get a weak grip, probably too weak, though for me I don't think it ends up as overly weak as the perpendicular way ends up over strong. If I have time tonight maybe I'll take some pics to make this clearer... I've always felt this way too, but I've often wondered if more knowledgable players or instructors also liked to see the full speed clips to get a feel for the dynamics of the swing.  Like, maybe at full speed you can get a feel for the dynamics and athletic motions a player is trying to use that a player is trying to use that wouldn't be obvious at slow speed.  Maybe that might help an instructor decide which things are a priority, or which path or feel or drill towards fixing something is most likely to succeed with that player? I suppose you're saying that's not true, at least not for you?  Like, you get all of that from the slo-mo?  Or that might be useful for an instructor of tour players but the shit we've all got wrong with our swings is so basic that it's not needed?  Something else?
    • I handed out a bunch of likes in this here thread. Ready golf or GTFO!! 
    • noted. and, thank you.  
    • ...and I can change from suit and tie to full-on golf attire in 10 minutes flat, while doing 50 mph!  
    • Like I said… your tempo is probably too slow if you can't get a 30-footer to the hole on slow greens. You're not hitting a lot of greens, so even two- and three-putting that often is not a great sign. You're not often putting from 40 feet away like some people who hit more greens. You're putting after a chip or a pitch shot more often, and those tend to be shorter putts. Start a Member Swing topic or post video of yourself hitting long putts to it if you have one already.
