In the market for wedges!

I may be in what seems to be the golfwrx minority, but the only clubs I truly like from address (current wedges) are the md5, t20, and ping forged glides - hate all others in the market right now. The Md5s remind me of the 588s on how they lay which I love, and they are soft and buttery so they are what I've been playing. I was fitted and they all spin plenty so go off feel/look imo. Md5s aren't the best looking in the bag but you can customize them for same price as the pings.

Quick question all - last couple years I've had a terrible time thinning my wedges within 50 or 60 yards or less. Wondering if some of that stems from have 12* of bounce. Could it be that a lower bounce would help? When I do strike my wedges okay, there's never a divot, but with my irons, always a divot. I'm also wondering if my desire to open the face up a little also hurts me because of the higher bounce.

Short answer, yes. But low bounce, under 6* can be really tough to hit well. 


There’s also measured bounce vs effective bounce. I’m not smart enough to know exactly how it works but the bounce steps on the wedge is measured bounce, and the sole grind and profile has a major effect on the effective bounce when swung.

I've been playing the Callaway MD5 48* and 54* and been very happy with them.  I did purchase a Honma Tworld W4 wedge and decided to use it for a round yesterday and it was stellar.  However, it looks like they may have been discontinued because you really can't find them on the Honma site any more.  Anyone else tried them?  The leading edge just refuses to dig which is what the doctor ordered in my case.
