Glad to see someone besides me plays traditional lofts too

46 mp18 because it fits my gaps with my other wedges

My 48 deg PW compliments very well with the other wedges (which are also are 845s).

46 mp into a 50 vokey

 

I really don’t manipulate the trajectory with the 46 like I do with the vokey. Also it makes me work on in between distances with my short irons more (8,9,PW) making me have 6 scoring clubs in my bag instead of 4.

Well most of new pw is 46 so it is the same. I have my pw set 46 and played all last season with a 52 gw. But the gap was too big. So i just bought a 48 and my plan is to either play the pw, bent the 48 to 49, the 52 to 53 and keep my 58. Or bent my 9 iron weaker, ditch the pw, add the 48 but at 47, play the 52 and 58 as they are... not sure what im.going to do.

I naturally hit the ball high with a lot of spin so the newer 46* PW are fine by me.

 

I prefer the set PW as I like it to feel closer to my 9 iron vs a lofted wedge (then you got to consider bounce, grind and shaft selections) since most of PW play is from the fairways.

 

From there I just go to a 52* and 58*.

 

If a 52* is not enough to get here, I’ll choke down half an inch on the PW to dial it back. Similarly, with the 52-58 equation.

 

I never really understood these 4 wedge vs 3 wedge debates?

In Fall 2016 I decided to refit with 48 + 54 + 60 (see below). It has simplified my short game.

 

Before that, I had four seasons with 46° PW (X20 Tour) and 50°, 54°, 58° in Cleveland CG14. I noticed two things: with four wedges, I had distance overlaps in several partial-swing cells. Also, in most rounds I would end up using either the PW or the GW for fluffy greenside chips. No particular reason why I chose one or the other.

 

I found I could grip down a little to shave off yardage, or play the wedge back just a tad to add a couple. Also, the high-toe MD-PM 60° works amazingly well. I also include the 9i in my partial swing matrix.

PW & GW from set (i20's -- that GW is really good!) and pretty much only full shots.

54* & 58* Gorge wedges give me even gapping on full shots and then I only use the wedges for anything 100 yds and in.

46,50,54,58 glide 2’s at the moment.

 

Last year was 46f,50f,56f (at 55), 60m Vokeys

 

I like all the wedges to have the same look and feel and lots of bounce, although I may go 46,50 ping and 56f bent to 55 and 58D bent to 59 this year.

 

I’m a big fan of the 56F Vokey so I may have to work it back into the lineup with the new 58 D grind.

If your PW is 46*, why not go with a 50*, 54*, 58* setup?? 4 degrees separation from every club. Perfect gapping.

I replace my iBlade PW with a Glide 46* depending on the course, both are about the same distance, difference is the spin, on harder greens I use the 46*, on regular greens I use the set PW...love them both...like mentioned above my wedges are PW/46*, 50, 54 and 58

I play a 48 RTX 2.0, I like it, much more workable, but of course more room for error. Very easy to get wayyy under and balloon on full swings.

because i already have a 52 and a 58. Had 50,54,58 before felt the 54 was never in use...

Both.... :scare2: When I got the P790's it caused too big of a gap between my existing wedge set up and the PW. So I got a 48* bent 1/2* weak to 48.5* to fill the gapping properly and took my 4 HYB out because the 5i should eliminate that need. Guess we'll see how it works out!

47° Pitching wedge from my set then a 50° or 52° gap wedge. It gaps perfectly from my 9 iron and is more forgiving on full shots than a specialist wedge. Not really sure what advantage there would be in bagging a 47° specialist wedge. It's really a 10 iron anyway (or 9 in traditional lofts) so I view the 50/52° wedge as my truly versatile pitching wedge for shots around the green.

Which do you carry and why?

 

I have the '18 Callaway MB PW bent to 48*, and I use it instead of a 48* MD4 wedge because I typically don't hit chip and pitch shots with less loft than my 54* sand wedge. I also find it relatively easy to hit the MB PW different distances and trajectories.
