I know this is an equipment question but its more directed to people who post here rather than the equipment forum...

I haven't updated my wedges and am still playing Mack Daddy 2 Tour Grinds(54/11, 58 bent 60/10)...it's definitely time because they're pretty beat.

Dan taught me how to chip, I've stuck to his method and as that's the same case for others in here along with Monte's method I'm wondering what you guys are playing for current releases.

I'm pretty much looking at the Ping Glide TS 2.0's or whatever current Callaway grind matches the Mack Daddy 2 TG's but I can't figure out which it is. I called Callaway to ask and he said none of them are really the same grind as the Tour Grinds but they're 'better'. So that helped a ton.

For those using the chipping methods discussed in here, what are you playing these days? I've looked through all the old threads and nothing current is really in any of them that I could find.

The wedges from all makers are moving to more versatility.I dont like the feel of the new ping glides but i never do so dont go by my view on those. the callaway MD3 from last year are incredible. Their c grind might be close to what youre looking for

Vokey V grind is best wedge available at retail IMO.  D grind is also good but V grind is only slightly more expensive and worth it IMO

I defintely think the Glide 2.0's are a strong contender. Living in the lush, typically soft conditions of the Northeast there's no other way to go...BB

Thanks everyone...I'll check out the V Grinds, before posting this I walked through a store to see what was out there and was immediately sucked in by the stealth Glide wedges

Just a reminder, the bounce. The stated bounce numbers on most of these wedges are bs and bounce is only a small factor to look at. Camber, and sole width also play a large factor in the balance of the wedge. The resultant of that balance is leading edge height. You can have a "low bounce" wedge with a higher leading edge height than a "high bounce" wedge. Then what needs to be taken into account is what you need  help with. Width tends to help in bunkers. C shapes are more chipping/pitching driven.

Check out this Vokey selection tool as a starting point.  It won't include special grinds like the V, though.

Find a demo day and try them out. Last year I thought I wanted Cleveland Wedges. Hated them. Then I wanted a 58 vokey, but did a fitting and ended up with a 60 degree because I couldn't hit the shots I wanted to with the 58.
