Gapping new irons/wedges... wasting time/money?


Recommended Posts

So I recently purchased a new to me set of Silverscot Blades and Vokey wedges...

I know that the irons have roughly the same lofts as my Pingi25 irons and the wedges have not been altered.  I had all intentions of going to my guy and getting all of the lofts, lies, and gapping checked.  After playing with them a few times I can say that the lofts are fine.  No toe or heel shot patterns on the sole and the wedges if anything are about 1/2 degree flat which I am good with.  Lie angle I wasn't really worried about because I knew that they would be close.  I was worried more about the gapping of everything.  After playing on this past Sunday I noticed that all of the irons/wedges blended together.  I could choose either a full 9 or soft 8, full 4 or soft 5, etc. thru the round.  There was no shot that I had to make that I didn't have the choice of 2 different clubs.

 

This poses the question, should I even waste the time and money checking them?  I was going to strengthen the 52 to 50 and the 56 to 54 but honestly that was only because that is what I was used to playing before, but I really don't have to as i'm comfortable with there they are at.

 

Should I just let it ride and play what I have?

Enjoy the walk

If you've already hit enough shots with them and are comfortable with the distances there's no reason to get them adjusted.
