I'm curious as to how many people bite the bullet and replace a Vokey wedge as soon as the grooves start looking slightly worn?
I've always tried to get two full years out of a set (about 250 rounds) but after even 40-50 rounds I can feel that the grooves near the center are "smoothed out" a little. And visibly the spacing of the grooves gets irregular in the heaviest impact spots.
So that means realistically, probably 75% of the time I'm using a certain wedge it is performing less consistently than it did when it was new. The good news is, my wedge game is pretty darned basic. But even I have to hit a shot from time to time where I really want the ball to land and stop in a certain spot to get at a tough hole location.
But man, buying a new 3-wedge set for $400+ twice a year just seems nuts for a double-digit handicapper like me.
