Just curious what you SL players are doing for your scoring clubs?

I have room for one more club in the bag and I'm wanting to add a 60deg wedge.

I'm debating on adding the 60 deg Lob in SL, versus just buying a normal 60deg VL wedge.  Right now I have 8 clubs in my SL set, 5-PW+GW+SW.  So my wedge lofts are P-45, G-50, S-55.

In summary, do you go all in on SL, or do you actually have some VL in your scoring clubs?  I realizes this is personal preference, but curious at what other SL folks are doing.

I went all in on SL.  To me, it would seem to negate the positive aspects of a one swing approach if you went VL in the higher lofted clubs...

I have 7-SW in single length and then a converted Glide 58* I used in bunkers and around the green. It's a hair shorter then the rest but mainly just to keep the swing weight feeling good.

I'd like to buy the Sterling LW when it's available in LH.

I play the Sterling, 4I - GW. I use a traditional 3-iron. I also use a traditional SW and LW.

I didn't use the scoring wedges because I felt they would be too long to manage, particularly in bunkers. I have the 3-iron because Sterling doesn't make one and I don't like hybrids.

The biggest problem for me is that the Sterlings are a club longer, which exacerbates the gap between my SW (110-yard carry) and GW (133-yard carry). I fill the gap by gripping down the GW 1 inch, which brings the carry down to 120.

I'm still getting the benefit of the 1-swing approach to single-length and the SW and LW don't feel too weird. But I do find myself favoring the Sterling 4-iron rather than the traditional 3-iron I carry when (a) I'm in-between them or (b) I need to hit a tight fairway.
