Would recommend s/n4.

Get a new 56 deg and play with it, until you get your short game in place, knows what wedge (brand, shape and bounce) you like and what distance gap you need. You can also learn to open up your club face for a couple of deg more loft.

Thanks all for the suggestions!

I think the best choice at this point in time is still a 56!

KopiO, I'll pick up the MX-25 from you in the evening tomorrow!

Hi Mickey,

If you have a 45 PW and a 50 AW, the logical wedge to get is the 56 (or 54). It is pretty versatile and suitable for the vast majority of bunkers.

Also, there is no hard and fast rule that you must use your highest lofted wedge around the green. For starters, find the one club that you are most comfortable around the green with and develop some consistency with it. After that, experiment with the same swing and tempo on the other clubs to find different options around the green.

Good Luck!

@Duval, Anything wrong ? Happy can liao..
57 become sand and lob wedge.
51 become approach. Sand will be a bit too less loft.
48 presume is pitching cum approach?? Do you have a PW ?

Mickey,

Most important is what feels comforable to YOU, not use what everybody else is using. This is no disrespect to anyone but what works for me dose not necessarily work for you. majority of my friends use titty wedges and I ahve borrowed to try for a a few games as well as pracitice at the range and it just does not feel right in my hands.

Go nborrow friends wedges and try as many different setups as you can before finally deciding on your purchase.
