I've just changed from Cleveland CG15 to Vokey SM8. Really impressed with them and the sole grinds are much better for me. Now the SM9 are out there's some good deals on the SM8

Mizuno wedges are high quality and you can find good prices on them more easily than most top brands.

I've really liked mizuno wedges in the past, but I'm fully on the sub 70 wedge train. If you are looking for a non standard more exotic grind, vokey offers the most options, but if you like a pretty traditional wedge, Sub 70 is great. I haven't tried the Hogan or other Dtc brands, but my guess is that they offer great value to.

I got two Sub 70 286 Forged Wedges for Christmas and really like them.  No exotic grinds but just simple wedges that work.  They are also substantially cheaper than the big name brands.

Honestly, are there any bad wedges?\

Wedges from any reputable golf company along with those from the likes of Sub70 and Maltby are all going to be good. It's mainly a matter of fit. I'm very partial to my Callaway PM grind wedges for my 56 and 60. I tend to prefer gap wedges that match my iron set as they tend to offer more consistent performance on more regular squared up swings. My current setup is Maltby MMB 17s down to gap which is 51*, then I have a PM Grind 56* and 60*. I've used Scor wedges in the past with much success. Scor now goes under the Eidolon brand now. 

All in all, you can't go wrong with whatever you choose for the most part. There are some more unique wedges out there that have different purposes like the Mizuno ES21, Cleveland CBX, and Callaway PM grinds. I really like the CBX wedges if you have any turf contact consistency issues. I don't know a lot about the ES21, but it's a very different looking wedge in person. If you're on a budget, you can't beat Maltby. However, it appears you're from SA which may make some manufacturers harder to buy from.

Picked up two new SM9 wedges this year.  56.10S and 52.08F.  Was playing with a 58.12D, but just too much bounce for our surface and the thicker traps.  Vokey does such a good job with wedges and offers so many lie/loft combinations.  Only wedges for me.  Those SM5s must be smooth as silk, if you play often.  Time for a change.

Luvvv my Mizuno forged 50, 52, 58, and 60, .  S5, T7.  Any version within the last up to 7 years or even older are great designs. But the small company forged are probably also worth a swing.  Mizuno however does Grain Flow Forging, an advanced tempering process that others probably can't do.  It aligns the molecules and eliminates possible uneveness.

Have seen “wet” testing to simulate wet grass, morning dew, light rain/drizzle, etc. that indicate one can easily lose 40% of normal dry condition spin when ball, club or both are wet. 
 

The 2 wedges that retained most spin were Ping Glide & Mizuno T22 due to some extra milling or texturing on the club face.

Just got some Cleveland CBX Zipcore and love them. Great consistency all around (I.e, my mishits). 

Count me as another CBX guy. It’s the perfect tweener for me as a cavity back iron player. I played Vokeys that I had so many mis hits with. Finally realized I’m not a tour player and the forgiveness in the CBX has saved me countless strokes each round. They’re versatile enough to hit the standard square face pitch, to the more finesse type shots around the green. Highly recommend.

I replaced my Vokey wedges last season and replaced them with Sub70 wedges. Worth taking a look at them if you aren't brand specific. I really like my Sub70 wedges as they provide the spin I need and they were cheaper than the Vokey.

Talk about your needs.

What type of courses do you play?

What are your current lofts?  Are you finding yourself with shots you can't pull off with the current set?

What shape does your eye prefer?

Think more about how you use them than the name on the back of the club.  A wedge is not a wedge, they are all different.
