What lofts on wedges to compliment my MP53's

Tue Nov 23, 2010 8:51 pm

Posted by Hairymonster


I have a set of MP53's 3-pw and an mpt-10 56 wedge, but am struggling with such a big loft difference between the pw at 46 and my next wedge at 56.
I carry my pw around 125 yards but my 56 only about 80 yards so have quite a big gap.
I am thinking either to get a 52 to go between the pw and 56 or get a 54 and a 60 and dump the 56.
What wedges do any of you use and what choices would you make?
Cheers
Tim

My opinion would be to keep the current 56.....then get a 50 deg wedge.

MP 53 PW = 46
50 deg wedge
56 deg wedge


IF you wanted to buy 2 clubs, then maybe dump the 56. And go 52 and 60.

I'm in the same boat, so to speak. I'm ordering the 63's but both it and the 53 wedge are 46 degress IIRC. I have played a 52 and 56 for some time but I have never played with a 60. At this point, I am planning on buying a 56 and a 52 and bending it to 51. This would give me a constant gap between the two wedges and impact my distances very little (probably add 2-3 yards on the gap wedge distance). I'd consider a 60 wedge but I usually play a 2 iron and don't have room in the bag for a lob.

Snap I play a 2 iron which is exactly why I am stumped as to which wedges to use as I don't have room for all the lofts I'd like.

I play with 3 wedges bent to 50 54 and 58 respectively. The distance gaps are perfect for me for all shots from 120 in. To do this and keep a long iron in the bag I take out my 4 iron and leave in 3 iron and 2Iron hybrid club! I would challenge anyone to tell me they hit a 4 iron more than they would use an extra wedge and they couldnt have made a shot with either a 3 or 5 iron. Worth a try??

I'd either go for a 52 and a 58 if you want more woods or long irons or go for a 50 and a 60 and get the 56 bent to 55.

It very much depends on what you use the wedges for and what you do from 40 yards and closer!

Because one of the things that almost NEVER gets discussed on threads like this is - What Bounce Angles, should you have on each wedge!

What do you use out of the sand? Because you will need to ensure that there is plenty of bounce on this club - however, that makes it a bit more tricky to open up for greenside flops and floaters.

This isn't really a question that can be answered quickly or straightforwardly... If you could tell us what you tend to do from 40 yards and closer and also greenside, we could advise you better!

If you are happy to use a 7 or 8 iron and play chip and run shots, that changes the choice of wedge/bounce combinations than if you like to hit high pitches and get the ball to stop.

From 40yards and closer I pretty much always send the ball high and stop it. Very very rare I'll play a chip and run.
I seem to always pull out my 56 and use that as I'm very confedent with it.
My 56 has 13 bounce angle and this is also what I use out of bunkers.

I've had exactly the same dilemma and had to ditch my current wedges.
I ended up going with a 50, 56 (bent to 55) and a 60. I'll aternate taking either my 19 or 22 degree hybrid out the bag depending on the condition/course. The new MP T11's are nice by the way!

You bring me onto my next dilemma!
If I go with mpg-10s I can only get them in wedge flex now but if I go with the mpt-11s I can get them in the same shaft as my irons.
