Just looking for some recommendations on what people think are the best wedges out there? Been using Cleveland, Vokey, and Taylormade wondering what some of others people are using and like?

Ping Glide 2.0 Stealth.  Just switched to them from the regular Glide 2.0.  Great looks, feel and performance.  Regular Glide or Glide 2.0 get a lot of love around here as well.

I don't think there is a "best", just what people prefer. I like the Callaway wedges.

Really like the Taylormades right now. The Ping Glide Forged look good too, but they're not out yet. There's not a bad wedge out there really, they all perform nearly the same as long as you have the right grind and bounce.

I have the bag too! First time using Mizuno wedges and for me they perform better than Vokeys (which I used for the better part of 10+ years).

I agree, not enough love for the pmp’s!  Just put a 56 and 60 in my bag and pulled my sm6’s!  The pmp tour grind is awesome, and they feel good as well!  Totally under rated!

I've tried all those wedges and I love the Callaways.  But not the PM grind.  I don't manipulate the face that much.  Vokeys are very popular but I hated them.

Think it's just trial and error to find what works the best for each of us.

It definitely is. I had the MD3 and liked them but I prefer the SM7.

I've played Ping Glides 1.0 and 2.0, Vokey SM7, Cleveland RX-3, and Callaway Mack Daddy 3 and 4.  I felt the Ping wedges were the easiest to play, but the Mack Daddy 4 really performed exceptionally.  My 54 degree MD4 is my most used club in my bag.

Big fan of the bettinardis H2 wedges. Can be had for super cheap now and are great looking and perform excellent. Copper or satin as well.

Callaway MD Forged are the best feeling wedges in the last 5 years. High spinning with fantastic feel. The MD4 are great as well but not as soft... But have better grind options.

Then there's the MG RAW, Glide 2.0,  Rotex 2.0 (better then the 3 imo), and SM7. All four are great.

Lots of good wedges.  I've tried nearly all the new stuff. Cleveland, Mizuno, Vokey, Fourteen, Callaway, etc. Right now on full shots I haven't hit a better wedge ever than the new Hogan Equalizer. Not saying it is the best for everyone, but definitely shouldn't overlook it.  Easy to order lie and length you prefer for $100.  Know you can custom all the others too, but the Equalizer is a very good wedge.
