I am wondering about this question too. Loft between my 8-9-pw is 4*. Pw at 47*. I am using 52* and 56*.

Thank you guys for the input!

Besides having consistent loft separation between your wedges and irons, you can also think about what specific distances you aim to get especially for your short irons and wedges - they being your scoring irons.

For example at your home course or the course you play most frequently, if your drive or approach always leaves you with 90m to the centre of the green, you should get a wedge with the right loft to get you that 90m with a full swing, or a predictable easy half swing on windy days.

The loft gaps are only part of the equation - what you want to achieve with your wedges is something you should know as well. Like a Star @ heaven

Definitely agree with what entity says, choose the wedges based on what distance gap you need to fill.

That being said, full swings with a 62 deg wedge might not be a great idea ... Might feel fine on the range, on the course, pretty different story ...

I am in the same boat, I prefer to use the SW for close shots by varying the face and swing length now; the lob wedge is steadily gathering dust in the bag.

Anyone interested to purchase a Trusty Dusty 60 degree wedge? Razz

Hmm just wandering the sandwedge is enough to do what the other degree wedges do. My old set has loose wedge with FW and AW on them. I am assuming these are forward or approach wedges...not sure they are not present anymore in golf sets nowaday..arent they similar to those wedges in question here...apologies to have hijack the thread Embarassed

yes they certainly are wedges per se. i'm currently playing graphite shafts xxio and they do have the AW, its a 50 actually and my SW is a 56. but these sets dont have a 60. looking to switch to steel shaft in the near future. thats why asking.
