Set Gap wedge. I can do anything with it that I can a specialty wedge plus it flows with the set and is more forgiving on full shots.

The Cleveland CBX 50* is a great hybrid between the set gap wedge (cavity back and forgiveness for full shots) and specialty gap wedge (full face milling and better grooves). I will say it's a little

Dedicated. If you're hitting it 115-125 you'll find better response and feedback than a set wedge.

Cleveland CG16 2 dot from '10 I believe. Only GW on the planet I seem to be able to hit well in all scenarios, and fell into it by total accident. To be fair, I ask my GW to do a lot only carrying 3 wedges, but for some reason this old, ugly, CB wedge is the only thing that does what I want. I tried all the major OEMS (MG1, RTX, Mizzys, Vokeys) and could not get what I was looking for. Found the unicorn and then went and bought as many as I could find on eBay so I don't have to worry for years.

I have played it both ways, depends on design of the wedge.


(Currently I have a 48* MD3: splits the difference between a 46* PW and a 50* GW)


Common advice on gap wedge type: If you use your GW primarily as an "11-iron" for full shots, go with the set wedge. If you also hit a lot of partials with it, match it to your SW and LW.

Currently playing a Vokey 52* gap wedge which is my 100-110 yd club, but thinking of either bending it to 51* or replacing it with a 50* gap wedge to overlap a little more with my PW (46*) which plays 125-135 yds.

The Ping Tour W 52.10 (bent to 51) was the best GW I've used.  First fitted wedge for me as well.  Chipping and pitching from 50 and in was pretty automatic and resulted in plenty of hole-outs.  On a full swing, I consistently had exceptional proximity to the hole (~10' or less)  Had to retire it and a Scratch GW because of the non-conforming grooves.  I've since moved onto the T20 50.07 because of the extra spin and hitting the number with very little deviation.  I'm not a fan of set wedges, but if it fits you why not use one?

Ping Glide 3.0 50* with Ping G400 irons for me. Hard greens at my home course meant I had to play for significant roll out. Now I’m able to attack more pins when the opportunity presents. 

I got i210 set gap wedge has been just ok. Tweener yardage not so good. Glide 3.0 is next move.

I might be a little different but I play the one with my set, Ping iE3 U wedge and also play a Cleveland RTX 2.0 CB 52 degree. The matched set gap wedge is for 125 and the RTX is for 115. I was told by the guy that fit me for my Ping's that Cleveland wedges are really 2 degrees week. He showed me on his loft machine that my 56 is really 58 degrees. Not sure if his machine was off or if anyone else has ever heard of this.
