New wedge spin question?

In the market for new wedges.

Hit a few at my local shop...what spin rates should I be looking for? Any bench marks/recommendations I should be looking for?

Hit:
SM7: 7600
MD4:5700
HiToe:6900

All strikes felt good.

Any recommendations??

    What loft and distance? Need to know. Most wedges these days spin about the same give or take a few hundred RPM

    For full shots we generally target a launch angle under 30* and a spin rate as close to 10000 as possible. If you want to get real technical it would be whatever the loft of the wedge is, divide by 2 and subtract 2 for your launch. So for a 60* it would be 28* and spinning around 10000.

    With the same ball contact quality, same dynamic loft at impact and the same ball there shouldn't be differences of anywhere near 1,200rpm between two brand-new wedges of different brands. Maybe 300-400rpm, probably not even that much.

    Either they were simply different lofts (like 3-4 degrees different) or something about them caused you to deliver the club into the ball differently.
