The "A" wedge is sometimes lumped with the Gap wedge although increasingly more often they are split out for the gap to be defined as 50-54 degrees while the "A" (or approach) wedge is between 46 and 50. These have increased in popularity as manufacturers have decreased the loft of irons for the purposes of range through the 90's as more and more golfers (whether by improved skills, manufacturing techniques or "forgiveness") were able to hit short irons much more consistently.The Nike golf site lists the A wedge as a 50 degree loft and 64.5 degree lie.

Does a wedge replace a sand wedge?

There are primarily 3 types of wedges, Pitching, Sand and Lob. A Pitching wedge has about 46-48 degrees of loft, a Sand wedge has about 54-56 degrees of loft and a lob wedge has about 58- even 64 degrees. Depending on player preference they can have low or high bounce which can assist getting out of the sand and help when playing certain types of course, if you have a low bounce club on soggy turf you may go under the ball easier, not getting proper contact. There are also gap wedges which are designed to fit between the Pitching and Sand wedge, at about 50 or 52 degrees.
