"Loft for loft, length for length, and shaft for shaft, the ball will go the same distance when hit on the sweet spot regardless how old the iron."

The term "wedge" is ambiguous because there is no standard of what a wedge is; it's just an abrutary designation depending on the marketing department of the iron set manufacturer.

When I started playing a PW was 50 degrees for example, and now it's 45 or even lower. The classic loft creap that gets discussed so much here.

Personally, I like to continue with the iron set clubs (including "wedges") up to 50 degrees. Then I switch to more classic wedges. So I'd say my lowest true "wedge" is 55 degrees. PW and gap wedge don't really count.

Two seasons ago I found the 46* PW and 50* AW were interchangeable for partial shots.

So, I switched to 48*, 54*, 60*. Just recently, I dropped the 60* in favor of the 58* (see below).

Yeah I agree, I have a iron set that goes 21 degrees to 54 degrees. I've had several sets like this and what different OEM'S call wedges changes all the time. My Ping Eye2 that would be 2 wedges (50 degrees being the lowest)

My G410 it's 44-45 degrees with basically the same overall lofts

I agree with Nessism. My first set of quality golf clubs, back in the early 80's. They were a set of Hogan Apex. The equilizer or pw was 52*. Now in my ie1's the pw is 45* and then my u wedge is 50*, but they seem more like irons then wedges.

46 degrees for me, followed by 50, 54 and 60 (although I am going to have the 54 bent to 56 on Saturday). Not really for the loft purposes but to get another couple of degrees of bounce on there.
