Wedges: RTX4 54/58
Ball: Q-Star Tour
My preference is my gap wedge but I'll use any iron below that for what I consider normal chipping depending. I'm not into using my 56 for chipping as I'll scull that one occasionally and it just fell out of favor with me and never tried to get it back.

I use alot of my clubs to chip. I take each hole differently .Elevation, how much run. Never a Hybrid though.

Team Nicklaus for the win - May 2012 THP Outing!
Put me in the 56* group. I do enjoy hooding/delofting it and simulating a bump and run.

All clubs left handed and courtesy TMaG and THP. Thank you very much.
I chip with everything from a LW to a 7 iron, lob shots with any wedge, and bump and run shots with everything from a GW up to a 5 iron.
Compare this with a player who uses nearly every club in the bag and I know who my money would be on.
I normally play my 56 with reasonable results, on the odd occasion when, to be more traditional, I have taken a 7 out, I find myself going way past where I intended the ball to stop. No feel!!

My 56 is the default chipper. Been goofing around with the 49 Niblick and it could take over the chip duties.
Thanks to and for the privilege of testing.
Typically anything from 8-iron to LW. I get into trouble when I rely too heavily on the higher lofted clubs exclusively. When I get it on the ground quickly, I fare much better. As always though, lie and pin placement dictate choice.
