    A 64? Really?? How much use does that see? There are very few shots I use my 60 for, could be dropped very easily... Just curious?!?

    Just re-added it. I was thinking I have to be so touchy feely inside 100. So this way I can take a more full swing at say,75 yds. We'll see how it goes. Can always take it out. But it's a scoring club. I do think really need the distance, so I thought I could easily take out the hybrid

    My wedges are 47°, 54° & 60°. I use my pw and 54° as irons more often than not. I use my 60° from 90 yards and in. I make full swings with my 60° all the time but I have to play a knock-down type shots or it gets too spinny. I nearly always flight the ball down with my wedges so they play stronger than the lofts state. It's just what I'm used to.

    I see, it makes sense really... If that's what works for you, and it is a scoring club, so you'd want that confidence as well! Hope it works for you!

    My wedges are probably the most frequently changed out clubs in my bag. Currently gaming a setup; PW is 47, 52, 56, 60. I call that my four wedges. Although the PW came with the irons. I really enjoy this set up, have reverted back to it a few times. As most of you have said though, having too many wedges leads to indecision, second guesses, and a poor short game! I have also experimented with a three wedge setup; 47, 53, 58. Also grew to like that set up. I found more decisions already made for you so to speak, when it came to playing certain shots. I also liked the creativity it brought to my short game. I could very easily make the 58* do what the 60* did, a lot of the times, even better!!

    Wedges are fickle tools, but like it or not, we use them a lot throughout a round. So we better learn to like them. Or find some we can work with the best!

    Here's an interesting story for you. I had sold my MP 29s. The individual I sold them to chose to purchase a new set of MP 29s, so I bought mine back. He wanted to try and refinish the clubs himself after I had them powder coated, so he took apart the pw. After I bought them back he could not find the shaft for the pitching wedge, so I found in my collection of shafts a matrix ozik programer 130. I am putting the rifle 6.0s back in them, but with the absence of the pitching wedge shaft, I am going to put this in the pitching wedge. My main concern is the weight difference, but I think it will only be about a 5 gram difference. I do have some FST PRO115 shafts, and could use one of them. What is your input on this decision? I am also thinking if I like it I may replace all of them in that set with the matrix. However, my three sets of blades all have 6.0 shafts in them, just don't know what to do.

    Shaft it up and see how it plays. I'm a type a personality so having different shafts would drive me nuts.

    I like to have all rifle flighted 6.0s, but being one short, and having this on hand... I'm just going good to try it.

    Since I'm happy with the top of the bag right now (4w, 7w, and 4h), and with a full swing gw I'm going to stick with the 56° and 60° for now.

    I ordered a G25 UW and SW to see how they play. I have always wanted to try the wedges that come with the set.

    I've given up on the shit load of wedges option. I've decided just to stick with the set PW (47°) and GW (51°) then use a Acer XB SW (56°). Gotta make this as simple as I can. The PW and GW are basically 10 and 11 irons that I can also chip with while I'll use the SW for all my pitching and green side bunker shots.

    I rock one more but I hear what you are saying. With the lofts on my set, I basically have what you have they're just called different names.

    I "only" have 3 wedges. Enough options if I want to put the ball "up." But chipping / bump and run is the deadly art. My work in progress.

    As far as I'm concerned I've only got 1. The PW and GW are essentially my 10 iron and 11 iron. Full swing clubs.

    Me too. I hit my PW about 95, GW 80, SW 65 on full swings.

    Same, SW is a full swing unless I'm from the sand. 58 degree is the only one I normally use for delicate shots.

    54/58 for me. I have a 50* that I drop in an out, depending on the course, or if I need my 2 iron.

    I only use 1 wedge around the greens. How about we have a friendly wager on the practice green sometime.
