There will soon be an updated signature with some new irons and wedges!!!

 

I was searching ebay as usual for my dream set (2006 TA Silver Scot forged blades) and yesterday I actually found them!  I found a full set, kind of.  3-9 but no PW.  I found the GW for the set as well but then I was thinking, do I want to purchase the GW and wait around searching for a PW or should I completely bypass both and go with 4 specialty wedges?  I was contemplating and then low and behold I found a newly listed set of Vokey wedges 46, 52, 56 (3 SM6), 60(SM7) used for 1/2 season and then tossed in the garage because of an injury on listed for $250 OBO.  Instead of throwing a low ball offer, I messaged the seller who immediately responded and kindly without hesitation offered the 4 wedge set to me for $190 plus shipping (WOW).  I immediately accepted the offer and paid.  This answered my question of waiting around for the PW.  Now, once all rebuilt using my AWT shafts that I LOVE, I will be going to my fitter to have the loft and lies checked/adjusted/gapped.  For now the wedges fit the appropriate gapping of the irons but will get everything fine tuned.

 

My plan is to take everything apart and rebuild once everything comes in.  I will be selling the Ping i25 heads 4-LW(on here) once I make sure my dream irons (which I had a few years ago but stupidly let go) still perform like I remember.  I have to be honest, I never really had much confidence looking down on specialty wedges in the past, however I was never the most consistent golfer and the chunkiness of the set wedges was more welcoming.  I have been looking at specialty wedges recently and for some reason they look better and more playable to me now.

 

I am excited about the build coming up and look forward to expanding my horizons with my game.  Lets hope for better scores having a bag that I love to look at!!!

Looks like you've got it handled. However, if it were me, I would still try to find the pw and gw to complete my "dream set" even though I would use the Vokey's for on the course.

I've done it in the past with an iron set, replaced the PW with a specialty wedge.  Varied results in my case, there are definitely pros out there that do it.  I like it for that added flexibility wit
