My gamer 56 has been a J33 Forged wedge for probably the last 14 years and obviously very worn out.

I can't find a wedge that compares to it. I like that it has a big face compared to every other wedge I've tried (all of them non-CB type wedges), sets up perfectly for me from every lie and it just feels perfect. It was the highest lofted club in my bag for a long time so I can do pretty much anything with it; I'm just lacking a bit of spin on shorter shots.

I like the high-toe style wedges for shorter shots, but I can't manage the trajectory very well on full shots on the ones I've tried.

Ideally the replacement would be forged and not a cavity back, but it doesn't seem like there's that many options out there that tick every box so I'm open to others.

    I was drawn to my callaway md 4's last year because they looked much bigger to me than the vokeys. I read the new md5's are smaller, but if so, md4's can still be found.

    Forged wedges might be slightly harder to find. Vokeys and Callaways are not forged. My hunch is Clevelands are not either, but I'm not certain.

    Take a look at the Callaway MD4 Forged wedges. Maybe even the Callaway MD Forged PM wedges. Here's a review of them with pictures.

    Generally speaking, I think Mizuno wedges have larger faces (and are forged).
