A 56 degree is a sand wedge.
what is the loft of a standard pitching wedge
Taylormade standard Pitching wedge is 48 degrees.
I carry a Lob wedge in my bag and it is a 60 degree loft club. It is one of 4 wedges that I carry. The others are a Pitching wedge which is 45 degree, a Gap wedge which is 51 degree, and a Sand wedge which is 56 degree.
I believe 47 degrees was standard.
The "D" is for Dual. It's a dual wedge w/ a 50 degree between pitching wedge and sand wedge.
An A wedges, usually called wither an attack wedge or approach wedge has around 50-52 degrees of loft, whereas a pitching wedge has about 46-48 degrees of loft. The attack wedge and pitching wedge have the same amount of bounce on them, but it depends or specification and manufacturer. They both have the same length shaft, yet, again it depends on manufacturer and specification.
most wilson Pitching wedges have about a 56 degree loft with a medium or 10 degree bounce loft
