So how do you reach 14 clubs? A bunch of woods/hybrids/driving irons?

I carry 4 wedges because I have spare capacity. Although I rarely hit my 54 because I don’t hit it as well for some reason. Maybe because I rarely swing it?

Close. I carry 2 Drivers, 9 and 10.5 (pending how I feel that day), 3W, 18H, 21H, 24H, 28H, 32H, standard 7 (alternate between Hybrid 7 iron pending lie), 8, 9, PW, 56, Putter. Don't get me wrong, I have 52, 54, 58, and 60, but I've found I get too obsessed over loft because I can flatten the 56, or choke-up slightly....not everyone's cup of tea I'll admit.

I'm debating between 4 and 3 wedges. Was playing 46*, 51* (bent from 52*), 56*, 60*. Looking to move to 48*, 54*, 60*.

My buddies debate wedge degrees all the time. The arguments are always moot because it depends on what anyone feels most comfortable playing.

Just a PW and a SW that came with the set. Right now I have only 10 clubs including the putter. I'm having enough trouble just figuring out when to use the clubs I have.
There is a lot to be said for a minimalist approach. Focus on making good shots and learning to play different shots with each club as needed will pay off in the end. Especially in the short game.

Yup, pretty similar, 46 / 52 / 60.

Simple = better for me.

5 currently with the pw. I carry the extra wedge instead of a 5i that never got use.

In 1986 for me it was 47, 51, 56, and 60. I was an early adopter of carrying a lob wedge. Nobody sold a 51 back then so I bent a 52 to get the gap I wanted.
A couple years ago I bought a mint, never hit set of beryllium copper Hogan Special wedges, late '80's or early '90's vintage. FW (52*), SI (56*), and (60*). They play beautifully and look the same. I wish I'd had them when they were new, to match my then current Hogan Edge GS irons.
