Im looking to invest in new wedges (gapping is ideally 52, 56 and 60) anyone gaming that they love? Currently have sm5 in each but its time to bench them and not sure on where to go for new ones? Hcap of 9 and usual up and down of 70% so consistency and playability is priority but do appreciate a clean looking wedge. Any help appreciated

I'm very happy with my Edels. They were $190 per wedge all in, which is pretty much what you'd spend on the latest Vokey, shaft and grip of your choice, etc. But if you really get up and down 70% of the time and are still a 9, I'd apply whatever time and money resources you have to your long game.

I've been playing Callaway MD3s in 46 and 50 as my PW and GW the past two years, and love them - very good feel, consistent spin, and low-mid flight. I came from Vokey SM6s, which performed well enough but felt fairly awful. The Vokeys looked better for sure, but it got to the point that I couldn't stand hitting them. The grooves are starting to get a bit worn out on the MD3s, so I am probably going to grab a set of MD4s this year. I use Modus 130X in wedges (which match my numbers irons).

For a SW, I cannot recommend the Miura C-grind series enough (they are 55* or 57*; for 56* I would bend the 55* 1 weak). It's probably the single greatest club I've ever owned. It has a generous amount of bounce, but plenty of trailing edge relief, so you can really open it up for little shots around the green. It is just perfect out of soft/fluffy sand, and above average for firmer/packed/wet sand. I've also found that this wedge generates just about the most penetrating/low-bullet/looks-like-you-bladed trajectory from fairway lies. This is my preferred trajectory, as my home track is super exposed and always windy. And, of course, the feel is just superb - better than just about anything else I've hit. I have the Modus Wedge 125 in mine - great shaft: super-stable on fuller shots, very feeling solid, and generates a respectable amount of spin.

My vote is for the Callaway MD3s. They are an excellent wedge. But those new Bridgestones on the front page are nice! Good price, too. http://www.golfwrx.c...dges-dont-move/

Are you looking for looks or better feel?

I was on fence with Vokeys because of the grind and bounc options. If they are working for you, I would stick with Vokeys.

I game the MDF and they superior in feel but the lack of grind, low bounce and odd leading edge is a trade off.

I have been impressed with the S18 wedges which will likely replace my MDF at some point.

I’m pretty sure he posted the question to get people’s opinion on the wedges they like playing and not his scramble percentage.  Just be nice and limit your opinions to the op’s question.  Maybe he does get up and down 70% maybe he doesn’t.... doesn’t affect you one bit.

I think performance wise most current wedges are the same, some work better than others for different people.  Find the one you like the feel and look of the most and go from there.  The md4 and sm7 will be out before the spring so you might want to wait until those drop before deciding.

Congrats! You'd have finished #1 on the tour last year in scrambling (Ian Poulter 67%).  But seriously, I'm still looking for a wedge I love so will see what other people have to say.

So many grinds out there.
Try them all out - outside, on real grass.
It's crazy what a difference they make.
Did a wedge fitting with a vokey disciple, it's amazing how easily I can hit a K grind but how poorly I hit an S grind.
Really neat stuff out there.

Really love my edel wedges. The feel is great and the look at address for me is what I had been looking for. In tight lies it sits flush even when I open up the face it doesnt feel like I will blade it. Definitely worth it.

For wedges I think the look at address and appropriate gapping are most important.  The best practical advice I can give is check your PW loft and make sure you gap accordingly.  Modern iron sets have strong lofts, and many PW are now 46* — so 50, 54, 58 makes more sense.  Or perhaps 52, 58, 64, or even just 53, 60.  Just be aware that standard 52, 56, 60 doesn’t make much sense with at 46* PW.

I go with Vokey because I like the grind options, but I think I’m going to look at Edel and Miura this off-season.

And I also would take a look at the S18. Looks great and I always go for the rounded leading edge.

Some food for thought here. Miura not a option here unless I travel to uk to try it but like the feedback on the S18 and Bridgestones. Will definitely have a look. Waiting until spring might be the way to go and see what’s out then. Thanks for the opinions

He posted the question to humble brag about what he thinks is his save percentage.  He's delusional.

We need to know way more to help him, like if he is steep or shallow, what shots he likes, what shots he has trouble with, why he's ditching the sm5.  He doesn't even specify his current grinds or shafts.  This post basically says "I'm one of the best 20 short game players in the world but I'm switching wedges.  What do you guys think?"

If you really are 70% don't change a thing.  If you are not 70% (you are probably around 20% as a 9, maybe a little worse) then you clearly have no idea what you do around the greens and need to start charting it so you can make sure your weaknesses are mitigated by your equipment (i.e. if a tight lie is your worst shot by far, consider an L grind.  If fluffy sand is, consider a PM or K, etc...).

The Cally MD3 performs great. I have tried them and the Vokeys and while both are excellent, I prefer the shape and ever-so-slightly rounded leading edge of the Callaway. I also like the W grind over the Vokey K. Do not want the MD4 because it has more of a straight edge. Reminds me of the MD Forged which I did not find that easy to use on the course.

Cannot get a better deal right now on the Callaway wedges on their pre-owned site. Buy one, get one free on CPO. I picked up four MD3's last night in Like New condition for $50 each. (52-S, 54.11 W, 58.09 S and a 60.08 C.) My experience with CPO is that these are really new wedges they are clearing out.

I would suggest .. 55   55   60  or 50   56  62

On your LW get a different grind than your SW .. and less bounce

The 62T Vokey grind is amazing for tight lies FWIW

Is sand play a strength or weakness?

Also, don't be afraid to play around with diff length shafts and swingweights if you do a fitting

I have always traditionally been a Cleveland guy (had a set of Vokeys but I couldnt ever really get used to them) but last year I got some boutique wedges from Bettinardi.  Got them all souped up with custom stamping and stuff.  Beyond looking cool, the have a great feel.  You think of them for their putter but these wedges were a pleasant surprise.  The new line this year looks great, even cooler than last years model that I have.
