It is really about personal preference.  If your technique is sound you can use any wedge.  My 845 SW is just as good as a $150 Vokey or one of those super expensive JP wedges if used right

Just went from Vokey's to Mack Daddy Forged and am really happy with that decision!

Felt better on full shots by a lot vs. Mack Daddy 4 and Vokey SM7.

Also had better distance control, likely from better contact and more confidence.

Spin #'s were comparable across all 3 wedges. Averaged around 10,200 on full shots from 110 out w/ a 52* wedge.

i've been partial to miura wedges. grew up on cleveland rtg wedges, then moved onto titleist vokey wedges. ever since i was gifted a set of miura wedges, i kept going back for more. i just added a 60* taylormade HiToe wedge. hoping to get that out on the course asap.

This year I bought the MD 54-12, the 58-12, and I have a 50-8. I've used them 9 or 10 rounds. They just don't feel right to me. The 50 I've used for a year.

I'm looking for Vokey wedges, 48-10, 52-12 or 14, and 60-14. Want to trade?

I had been a vokey user for prob 12 years, but the Hi Toe and PM grind stuff had me intrigued, so I did a good amount of testing with all three this spring.  chips and full / pitch shots, and the PM grinds really worked well for me.  The added height of the face and the extended groves really is a confidence booster, made me feel like I could never hit it poorly.  The reason I went PM's over Hi Toe was the sole width.  I actually liked the look of the Hi Toe a little better, but the way the PM's are designed with their low leading edge, plenty of bounce, and only moderately wide sole, you end up getting the best of all worlds IMO.  Midrange shots were basically a wash between the two, but the little shots around the green is where the PM really came to life for me.  the super wide sole of the Hi Toe made it feel just a tad clunky around the greens.  So I know go 52 Vokey F grind, then 56 - 60 in the PM.  I was a vokey snob for a long time, so this is a big switch for me lol.

If you can find a good deal on Miura wedges that fit your game you won’t be disappointed. Specifically my 51* is one of my favorite clubs of all time. The thing I like most about it is distance control (I never catch flyers with it).
If I didn’t get a great deal on the Miuras I was also a huge fan of the MD Forged (my club has them in their demo bag and they felt great as well) and finally the Fourteen RM22. For me personally they all beat out the Vokeys... but of course everyone’s mileage will vary.

I'm a yuge fan of the Cleveland CBX wedges.  Being in the same range of handicap, these have realllly helped me.  So easy to get in the air and mishits are super forgiving.  They aren't as clunky at address as they seem they would be.
