Need help on new wedges

Recommended Posts

Apologies if this is in the wrong area/thread. Currently I just have a Taylormade R9 sand wedge. I think 55 degree loft

 

I am looking for new wedges, would you suggest some Vokey wedges, some Mizuno mp-t11 or nike vr pro satin wedge?

 

Seems like I would need a lob and a gap one.

 

Any help is appreciated, sort of a noob to this game called golf.

if conforming vs. non-conforming doesn't matter, you may want to check out the Cleveland CG15's with the Zip Groves. I had a 60* before I switched to Vokey and really liked it. You can probably find them for $100 now, which is $20-30 less than per wedge than Vokey

Right on, anyone have or use mizuno wedges? Heard they are good as well

I bag a Vokey 52* gap wedge and a Mizuno MP-R12 56* sand wedge.

My opinion right now is I doubt I'll swap the Vokey out for another R12 because I like the more compact Vokey head for fuller fairway wedge shots.

But the Mizzy 56 won't be going anywhere. Best 56* wedge I've ever owned....sand, greenside rough, forged feel, versatile sole grind....it's fantastic.

I have 52 and 58 in vokey SM4's, check ebay, you can get some decent prices. I would go 58 over 60, I believe they are easier to hit fuller shots with although I never hit full 58.

So far this year I've tested the TaylorMade ATV, TaylorMade Z-Spin, Callaway Forged and Titleist Vokey SM2. I liked the Vokey the most and the ATV the least. Prices range from $120-$130 for each, although Golf Town had a 2-for-$150 deal on the Z-Spin recently. Sadly there isn't much info on that club because it appears to be a Golf Town exclusive. There isn't any info on the Z-Spin on TaylorMade's website and it's not listed on the Golf Digest Hot List.

I've been looking this season and tested a few (mostly conforming) and bang for the buck if you go the ebay route...the new Cleveland 588 if you buy a set of 3 and they are nice, the Callaway x-series cc...the slates seem to be more readily available, and the best bang for the buck may be the Cleveland CG 15/16, a lot of etailers have them in almost new condition for about 55-70 bucks... last years Vokey if you are in the right place at the right time. There is a nice set of tour-S wedges 52/56 on BST right now.

Friend hooked it up with a nike sv tour wedge 60*

Used it today at the range, not bad, I enjoyed its spin and launch.

Currently, I have a R9 Sand wedge 55* and this 60*. Thinking of getting a 50 or 52 degree wedge next
