Currently have 45* PW, 48* GW, 56* SW and 60* LW

I want to keep the Wilson Staff PW and GW so was thinking of dumping my other wedges ( they're old anyway ) and going 45*, 48*, 54* and 58*

Or should I go 45*, 48*, 52*, and 56* ( as my highest lofted club )

I currently use my 60* a lot especially on faster greens, so didn't really wanna go any lower than 58*

I could always get my Wilson Staff GW bent to 50* if that would be best

Someone else with Wilson irons posted a similar situation last week. Those irons sure are lofted strongly. Why don't you bend the GW to 50* (assuming you're comfortable with the change in bounce), and buy a 54*/56* (bend to 55*) and 60*? Then your lofts would be 45-50-55-60, even throughout.

I am currently playing a set of wedges with lofts similar to what you are thinking (48, 52 and 58).  I dropped by 56 and 60 and consolidated these shots with a 58 degree wedge.  I like the 58, and can play almost all of the shots I want without the extra wedge.

I'd suggest keeping the 48* G (really PW loft) and finding a set of 52/53 and 57/58 wedges with the bounce and shape that fits your eye.

Also... don't forget about the importance of having lies checked and adjusted with these clubs.

They are strong. Only from the 8i - GW though, the rest are pretty standard which is weird.

I like this idea. I just bought a Adams Golf Tom Watson 54* SW off rockbottom for $30 and will see how that goes.

    • My goodness, you aren't kidding. For those who don't see the article for whatever reason:  there's a list of the top 25 fastest times ever recorded in the women's 1,500 meter freestyle swim.  Katie Ledecky owns spots 1-13, and also spots 15, 17, 18, 22, and 25.   The closest thing to that I can think of offhand is in threes.  Tiger Woods owns the top three season-long strokes gained: approach ever recorded (granted, these have only been recorded in, I believe, the Shotlink era), and at one point (up until a few years ago), Kurt Warner threw the most yards ever in a Super Bowl, but was also in second and third place on that list. 
    • Day 155.  Quarantine practice plan, day 11.  I really like this drill and I plan to incorporate it into my practices on a regular basis.  I took video but it's still on my phone, I will likely put it in the relevant thread tomorrow afternoon. 
    • Day 28: Long day at work, so not much time left for golf practice today. Managed some work on downswing priority piece, hit 10 balls, 7-iron, lots of rehearsals between shots. 
    • Day 65, July 29, 2021: More three-quarters swing work.
    • It is also acceptable to take relief again, if necessary, from the same cart path for the shot now contemplated.  A common example: cart path is near a boundary object (OB fence) on the left. A right-handed player may take relief for a left-handed shot that has them standing on the cart path and the NPCR for the left handed shot is to the right of the cart path. After taking relief, the player may decide to hit a right-handed shot. But, now standing on the cart path for the right-handed shot, may take relief further to the right of the cart path to allow that shot.
