What is your wedge setup and why? Are you set with what you have, or are you thinking of making a change or two?

I play 3 wedges, 52*, 56*, 60*. I play the 52 from 80/90-115/120. I play my 56 from 80 down to chipping. And my 60 is really just a specialty club for me. I use it out of the bunker and when I want to stop the ball quickly (mainly short sided). My 60 rarely gets used further than 20-30 yards out.

Being that my 60* is rarely used, I am debating replacing it with a higher loft...I’m also thinking about replacing my set PW with a 46* or 48*.

50* basically a 10i down from my 46* set pw. Need about 115-118 from full shots.
60* for short sand and floppy flops. Rare 76 yard full shots.

Have had 54 in the middle for pitches and 105 full shots.
Plan is to slot the 56* MD5 in there. Might bend it a degree or two strong.

52 and 58.

I had carried a 54 and 58 for a long time but the distance gap between my AW and 54 was too much.

AW (48) 135 yards
52 115 yards
54 107 yards
58 90 yards

I carry 50 set wedge and 56* only. I
50 carries 110 and 56 carry 85. I know there is huge gap between but so far it hasn’t hurt my scoring. I’m thinking having my 50 loft up to 52*. My 56* my money club. I built my game around it.

At the moment I have the below

50* - 90-100m
56* - 70-80m
60* - 60m

Those are all full swing distances but I don’t mind playing 3/4 shots either to take some off. Ive just ordered a new set of Titleist irons that will give me a 46*pw, 50*aw, 54*sw and my 60*PM.

Have the set PW, then go 50, 54, 58. I tend to use my 58 quite a bit for most anything inside of 100 yards. Exceptions are chipping/pitching based on the amount of green I have to work with. More green to work with, then I use less loft.
I like the setup and ithas worked well for me this season. I have thought about going to perhaps a 50, 56, 60 or 50, 54, 60 setup.
Dunno...I think I would for sure play a 60 if I played country club conditions.

52 is a 100-110 full shot club. 56 is my workhorse for sand, chipping, pitching, partial shots and I can hit it full 90-100. 60 is barely hanging on to its spot as a trouble club. I have tried to replace it with another long club but it lives on for now.

I presently go:

50° (set AW)- 130 yds
52° - 120 yds
56° - 110 yds
60° - 100 yds

I do prefer to play the LW up to 100 yards but it's played back in my stance, thus delofted some. Over the last month, I've been more consistent with this approach vs SW.

Set PW, then 50, 54 and 58. Full swings on PW and 50, I use my 50 for chipping around the green quite a bit.

Other than set pitching wedge, I play 48/54/58. I am not looking to switch, as on course play has shown this is the best setup for me. I used to play 50/54/58, and the 50 would be just short of where I needed it to be. I've also tried a 60 instead of 58, and visually it just looks so much more open so it didn't work well either.

My set wedges go 43 degrees then 48. I was carrying a 54 and 58, but I am in the midst of a switch to 52 and 56. When I got fit recently, he suggested that I bend those to 53/57, but I am not sure I will do it. The new MD5 wedge I got is 56 degrees I can open it up easier than my old 58. I have to sell a few things and then will buy another MD5 wedge.

I don't play too many full shots with my wedges unless it is the set wedges, but I may hit more full shots going forward; I haven't had them on the course yet, but think 52 will be 90 yards and 56 will be 75. My old 54/58 full swings were 80/60 yards and I rarely tried the full swing 60 yards.

I have a 48, 56, 60, 64 in wedges typically (I tend to be a wedge-ite).... All setup for specific shots and conditions for the courses I play. I like hitting 3/4 or full shots more than half shots (not sure why, but I feel like I get better contact with a fuller shot); hence the many different wedges. Wedges are also the clubs I tinker with/change out the most throughout the year.

It's not unusual for me to have 2 or 3 sets I rotate in and out as the year progresses

PW and AW are part of my iron set. I have a 54* MD4 W-Grind, and I just today got rid of my 58* PM Grind 2.0 and replaced it with a 60* HiToe Bigfoot.

PW and AW are used for full shots down to bump and runs. 54* gets occasional full shots, long bunker shots, and most chip/pitch shots. My PM Grind was becoming a problem, so it was getting used out of bunkers almost exclusively. I'm hoping the HiToe gives me a little more versatility, so I can use it for 50 yards and under, little back foot check shots, etc.

I carry 46, 50, 54, 58. Distances are 115, 100, 88, 78. Inside of 78 yards I tend to use the 58 until greenside. Around the greens it depends and clubs run from 58 to 6 iron.

46* set PW - 140 carry
50* wedge - 125 carry/~85 partial
54* wedge - 110 carry/~75 partial
58* wedge - 95 carry/use for anything under 70 yards and exclusively around the green, including green side bunkers.

Carry/totals are within a foot or so. I full swing all of them.

I am thinking about a change, but just to a different grind/bounce in my lob wedge. It’s high bounce and it’s terrible for my swing and the conditions I play in. I want low bounce with a more versatile grind. I’m leaning toward Vokey in 58*, but not sure on L or M grind. My 54* will probably be replaced at the same time or soon after due to wear. It will likely be a Vokey 54S due to the sole width as I don’t open or close the face with that club.

Currently my set up is PW 44 then 50/55/60 but my new wedges are 48/54/60 brings that gap down between my PW and GW, 54 is more green side and bunkers, 60 is only used if I need that extra height and stop

My set PW is 46 degrees, then I have the RTX4 in 50/54/58

The 58 is used around the green and in greenside bunkers when I don't have much room to play with, but I will use all 4 wedges for different distances depending on whether I want to flight the ball differently

I go with a 50, 54, and 58 set up myself. Two main reasons why; 1. Since my PW is a 45, the 50 is an excellent gap. I don’t really like to choke down and take half swings from 100 yds out, I much rather take a full swing. Having a 50 allows for me to do that. 2. Never really cared for a 60, just goes straight up for me.
