Bout time for some new wedges...I've had my 58* scratch since they came out so its a bit wore out, probably explains the increase in distances lately. My 54* vokey is about half the 58's age and likewise getting worn.

Going to be looking at getting a new 54/58 setup.  I am a digger and the bunkers around here in good condition are fluffy, or most other days packed, heavy and wet or dirtpan

2016 M1 9.5 tuned to 7.5
TM r15 3 wood
Adams Idea Pro 2h/4h
Mizuno JPX 900 HM 5-GW
Tity vokey 54*
Scratch 58*

Lots of hype around the SM7 and people seem to like the hi-toe for around the green and bunkers

Hi-Toe is a great wedge. I'm actually surprised just how good they are.

Other than that, Vokey, Mack Daddy 4, Edel are all good options.

Callaway W grind, these have changed my game.  

Perfect for a digger like me with still just enough playability to open it up around the green with 58 and 54 is bested only by Nike toe sweep out of the bunker but is so much better everywhere else it's not even close.

as you can see, everyone has a different answer. Go out and demo a few at your local big box and see what suits your eye/feel.

I've got an S18 en-route after my brand OCD got the better of me and I had to have wedges to match my JPX900s.

The CBX is still incredibly good out of bunkers.
