nike vr pro wedges? and wedge question

3 posts in this topic

i am looking into getting new wedges since right now i just use a 55 degree wedge from a 45 degree pitching

i have a 55 degree taylormade burner wedge so not forged

nike only makes a 52 56 and 60 degree wedge for left handed players in this model

i will only be buying 2 wedges

should i get a 52 and 56 then swap out my own sand wedge, or buy the 52 and 60, so i have a 52 55 60 set up

ive been told that i dont really need a 60 as it is just harder to hit and also makes one more decision to chose from when choosing which club

thanks

If the SW is a TaylorMade, chances are it's a little hotter than the Nikes. You might end up with some funny yardage gaps if you mix and match TM 55* with "Swoosh". See if you can find a demo day so you can hit the Nikes outdoors, and compare distances with your SW.

As for the 60*, some people can hit it and others can't. If you have a pro who knows your game, you might ask for advice on whether you need a 60*. Lots of golfers just hit cut shots with a SW rather than getting a 60*.

Do you think you have a gap in your short game right now? Or, are you trying to get up to 14 clubs to increase your options?

i ended up getting a 52 and 56 wedges

i found that i was always scared to use the pw (45) in close so id always pull out the 55, but fall short of the green, now with the 52 i should be right on

im swapping out the 55 and adding in the 52 and 56, i now have 14 clubs, but i carry both a 21 degree hybrid that i use for chipping around the green like a putt and a 21 degree iron (4iron in my set) so i can always swap one out if i were to add the 60 degree later on
