PostSubject: Wedges (Not the potato kind)   Thu Sep 10, 2009 1:29 pm

What wedges do you carry (lofts and brand) and why? Just wanted to poke around a little Smile

For me, I've got:

1. CG12 46˚ (prefer this to my Callaway X-20 PW)
2. CG12 52˚ (a great club to have, IMHO. Good distance, reasonable spin)
3. SM Vokey 56˚ (learning how to use this. It's a good wedge to have between the 52˚ and 60˚)
4. SM Vokey 60˚ (the shot-maker Smile Great for sand and precision, but certainly the most tricky of the wedges)

Heehee... If anything, it would be the MX57s (or 58s) or the 200s Wink But I'm actually quite pleased with my X-20s so far. Just itchy. Always itchy.

Waiting for any TM sales to complete my wedges family... Smile

Am using am original mizzie mx-25 PW, along with :-

1. Ikasu 52 wedge
2. Ikasu 56 wedge
3. Ikasu 60 wedge

However, if I were to turn back time, I will just settle for a 58 wedge only rather than a 56 and 60. I think a 58 wedge is versatile enough to cover both these wedges.

PW, 52 degrees Titleist 200 series,

56, 60 degrees Nike SV black satin or
56, 60 degrees Titleist Vokey SM satin

All with full cord Golf Pride grips.

Nike SV because I have been playing them since Day 1. Haven't trained hard enough with my SMs so will not put them in the bag yet. The SMs do make me lose a little bit of distance for some unknown reason...

My wedge set ~

Vokeys 52/08, SM 56/10 & SM 60/04. I will soon get another Vokey SM 56/12, cos it's time to retire the 1-yr old 56 deg, & I think I need a little more bounce than 10 deg.

Ironfist,

I was looking for consistent feel from irons to wedge, hence i bite the bullet and get all 3 mizzy wedge. btw, i got all 3 from Ebay at very good price.

Yes, the Orange color was repainted - DIY. If i'm not wrong, the original is white in color.

Did you get your wedges used or brand new off ebay?
