I am in the market for a new 52 wedge, and hoping to take advantage of some of the current discount promotions. I have it narrowed down to a few. I would appreciate any feedback. I believe the only one that is not forged is the 588 rtx. Curious on best feel, spin, grooves.

Cleveland 588 rtx Pearl black

What are your other wedges?
I like some uniformity in my wedges.

The other wedges are mizino MP's black nickel from 2008 or 09. My father in law used to be a Rep for them so I got a good deal.

I'd stick with Mizuno.  I've got a couple of MPR wedges. Very nice feel

Of the options you listed:
Titleist
Cleveland
Nike
Taylormade

Like others have mentioned, I'd give Mizuno a look. I also like the new callaway forged wedges.

Also thinking of adding another wedge to my arsenal.  Currently playing CG12 48/6 and 56/14, thinking of adding a 52 either 8 or 10 bounce.  Having a hard time finding another CG12 that I'd be happy with.  Loads of 588's out there on eBay, no experience with this model though.  Anyone give me some insight as to the differences between 588's and CG12's?
