AP1 53 or Vokey 52

ken h

I got a set of 718 AP1s and really like them. The gap wedge has become my go-to club for chipping. I have a gap in distances between my Gap wedge (48 degree) and my sand wedge. I'm debating on whether to buy a Vokey 52 or order the 53 with the same shaft as my set. Has anyone hot both of them? Differences?

    What will be your use case? Full strokes or most likely controlled shots around a green? With the AP1s, I preferred a 48 GW. The AP3 has me thinking about the W but not enough to be serious to replace the GW at this time. May rethink that when the groves are worn enough on the 48.

    It all depends on you and what you feel more comfortable with at address. I prefer the look of a true wedge with that thin blade look however others may be more comfortable with a larger wedge look.

    Sorry if this is going to be a bit long winded. I play the 716 AP1s but the lofts are about the same as your 718s. I went from the 7 iron down to the first gap wedge (47*) after that I have/had a Vokey SM5 52*-12 that I turned down to a 51*. My sand wedge is a Vokey SM6 56*-10. These are enough for my game. I'm almost 70 yrs old so my game is not overly fine tuned that I can feel the difference between shaft weights for shortish shots. Unfortunately i broke the shaft of the 47* set wedge so I replaced it with a Vokey SM6 46*-8 that I had turned up to 47* to keep the loft spread the same. I guess all of this leads me to say that either one would be a good choice. If your game is fine tuned and you can feel the difference between the two shafts, then go with the set wedge to keep consistent. Otherwise I would go with the Vokey. I recently bought a SM7 52*-12 that I turned down to a 51* to keep the lofts at the same spread. I chip with all of my Vokeys depending on my distance from the cup, and all three have great feel and good results. As I said before, either one is a good choice and it all depends on how much feel your game has. Fairways and greens.

    It should say the Vokey 52 or the AP1 53 degree wedge with the same shaft as the set.

    I’ve got them both. I Carry the Vokey 52. I also use the Vokey 48 over the AP1. I just like the look better. I “feel” like the cavity back gets caught up in the turf on some lies. I chip almost exclusively with the 52.

    Ken, I have AP1 716s. I went with Vokeys, 48-54-58. Works for me. I feel these are my scoring clubs so I chose the Vokeys. I have the BV wedge flex shafts in them.
