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.

    • @KevinBlakeHave you read this post? It may help.  
    • I shot 80 on the second day at SV, then 80 and 81 at Lawsonia, which were my 3 lowest scores of the year. Some highlights: 60 yard sand shot to 5 feet for birdie on MD. 3 birdies in a row from 10-12 on SV on day 2. Had a combined 30-35 feet of eagle putts on 10 and 12 (I hit two 5 irons to about 15 and 20 feet, respectively), and stuffed an approach from about 115 to 4 feet on 11.  Making par from the driving range on 9 on SV. Hit a completely blind 70 yard shot to 15 feet. I had to turn on my GPS to get some guess at the yardage because I couldn't see the flag to hit with my laser. I had a great lie, though. 🤣 Hitting the green twice at 7 at Lawsonia, playing it in a combined -1. 
    • I filmed @DeadMan@iacasand @GolfLug all with great shots on the the final hole of the Sandbox, number 17. Erik and Vishal nearly ace it. Gotta love the drunk guy yelling in the background. 😂
    • No, It does impact lie angle at address. Hand position can effect lie angle at impact to.  just because you present no toe up at address doesn’t mean you present that same position at impact. Your hand position can be different at impact than at address, and the dynamics of the golf club will change the lie angle as well. you could have very low hands at address and then swing where they end up much higher. If you change the lie angle of the club because it looks a lot toe up at address, then you could induce the toe to be down at impact. impact is what matters. When fitting, they have you hit a lie angle board, impact. Not measure lie at address.
    • So it's not the position of your hands that affect how much your toe should be up at address, it's just your swing speed and the material the shaft is made from?   I had seen it mentioned that hand position was the most important thing for this but maybe it's wrong
