The Difference Between 'Forged' & 'Cast' Wedges
With a focus on control of distance and feel the majority of wedges are made of forged steel or soft cast steel, which gives players more feedback. The distinctions between cast and forged steel clubs lie in the construction and processing process. This can have an impact on the feel and, often, the performance, of the golf club.
The process of making cast wedges involves placing liquid metal in molds where it gets cooled and then solidifies into the desired shape. This process is usually more economical and efficient since large quantities of wedges can be made by using a single mould. Cast wedges can be a bit harder in terms of feel, however, certain brands, such as TaylorMade have managed to create cast clubs with softer feel than normal making the game more enjoyable.
A forged wedge comes from a solid piece metal that has been bent to form a shape by mechanical and thermal force. The metal used in the forged club is usually soft carbon steel, that is more expensive, but forged clubs are extremely advanced because of technological advancements that they now are the most popular alternative.
Clubhead Sole Design

Certain manufacturers provide three bounce options as well as up to six grind options, so deciding on the best bounce for the clubhead may be confusing.
In general, if you have a fairly high angle which means you have a lot of divots, you'll need to have a greater bounce.

Gap wedges, such as the ones used for pitching and pitching, typically include the standard grind. However it is possible to have as many as six grind options for the Sand or Lob Wedges.
