Well, after snapping my gap wedge today i'm getting one for my birthday( which is sunday). What are some suggestions? My Current setup is a 47* Pitching  52* gap a 56* and a 60* floating around.  I hit my gap 95 at 52* my pitching 115, and 56 80 and in. (60 is 50 and in).  what do you guys suggest to fill the gap? What's a good wedge that can stop it pretty nice? Thanks.

52* Gap

I game a Cally X-tour. Just make sure whatever you get is forged, that way you can always have it bent a degree or two to fit your yardage gap.

Yep, get a 52* SV Tour to match your 56* SV Tour. You're in luck, those SV Tours are on sale nowadays.

I just picked up a Taylormade 52 degree Z groove TP wedge, liking it so far.

Vokeys are always a great wedge as well.

The Nike SV tours are nice and can be had on the cheap these days.
