Wedge set

I have a 46 i20 PW and want a vokey PW. I have a 54 and 58 vokey. What degree of PW should I get?

I keep my wedges at a 4* seperation. Currently I play a 52* 56* and a 60*. If I was in your shoes I'd personally go with a 48, 52 and 56. I'm sure others will chime in but that's my thoughts.

I'm in a similar situation, my AP1 PW is 45 and gap wedge is 50. I added 54 & 58 degree Vokey's to get my wedges where I wanted them. Another option I would consider is s 56 if you feel 58 is too much loft.

I also am running with a 56, 58, 60. I find that the 56 is to close to the PW because i hit it the same distance. So for me and my play i would use the 58, and 60.

Mack you said, "I have a 46 i20 PW and want a vokey PW. I have a 54 and 58 vokey. What degree of PW should I get"?

Sounds like you want to replace the 46 i20 PW.  You may want to consider a 48 degree or 50 degree Vokey wedge... it will probably depend on what your 9 iron loft is and what type of shot you are looking for from your PW.  

I play 4 Vokey wedges and I'm a slider so getting the right bounce was very important to me.   FWIW, I play 48-06, 52-08, 56-08, and 60-04 Vokey wedges all with Aldila VS Proto graphite shafts.  Love my Vokey wedges.  Good luck with your search for the perfect wedge setup.

Didn't Rory use a 46 then to a 53?

I have decided on the 50. What degree of bounce should I get 50-08 or 50-12? My playing conditions vary from very firm to soft.

I am in the same boat also.  My AP1 W is 45, then i have a 52 and a 56 vokey.  I'm planning on buying the 48 vokey and then getting it custom bent to 47 or 46.5 .... 

My AP1 wedge is 45, and I love my 52, so I had to much of a gap between the two. As such I had the AP1 Gap Wedge adjusted to 48.5 so that I would have a club in between the two. My sand wedge is a 58 lob wedge which has been adjusted to 56 by the gentleman that fitted me for my AP1's. That rounds out my set of wedges.

In the end I think it all comes down to personal preference, so I would highly suggest having your swing measured with various lofts before settling on any particular loft to fill your gap.

The Vokey wedge web page has a selection guide that has a great deal of info on selecting the proper amount of bounce based on your typical playing conditions and your swing type. There are some good tips about trying to put together a wedge set so that you have the majority of conditions and shots covered. A question you'll need to answer is; Are you a sweeper or a digger? Or somewhere between. Myself, I typically dig a hole to China when I swing a wedge.

Ideally you would want to hit the club at a range with the guidance of a pro to determine if it fits your swing and existing set. Although you can use a wedge in a vast number of situations, at least you'll be confident of how if performs in some prior to purchase and how it fits together with your other wedges.
