For several years (until I retired my DCI 990's in 2012) my wedges were the old Spin Milled 50.08, 54.11 and 60.07. Since switching to png irons I've been using the wedges from my iron set but now I'm itching to return to "real wedges".
Does anyone remember the sole shape on the old SM54.11 and have an opinion on how it compares to the 54/10 (S grind) and/or 54/14 (F grind). Nowadays I'm a true believer in the "bounce is your friend" religion so I assumed the 14-degree F-grind would be the way to go. But looking them over in the store, the sole on the 14-degree F model seems way more squared off and just too much bounce compared to my old middle wedge.
I actually think the 10-degree S grind looks kind of like an SM54.11 with added heel and toe relief (which in honesty is neither here nor there for my game). I'm thinking a 54/10S bent a degree weak will be a good approximation of what I'm used to.
For the other two wedges I'm going with the 60/11 K-grind and 50 or 52 degree F grinds so I'll have two wedges with all the bounce I'd ever want. In a weird way it makes sense not to get too carried away with a third high bounce wedge in between. Not that I ever try to slide the club under the ball delicately but a bit of variety may be a good thing.
