Vokey wedges are the most popular. If you are trying to come up with suggestions for new wedges, you shouldn't follow the trends. Look into a company that has alot of options and what works best for you. Scratch makes great wedges and has probably the best wedge options on the market. To me wedges are the most important clubs in my bag and I play what works best regardless of brand or popularity.

As everyone has stated the major companies are the most popular but scratch golf makes some great wedges and highly customizable. Most important thing is getting the correct lofts and correct grinds.

Definitely agree 100%. The most important part about buying wedges isn't what anyone else is using; it is what is right for you. It depends largely on your swing, set makeup, and what shots you want to hit. There are so many factors that go into these things, though (like playing surface, sand texture, loft requirements, etc...) that you really need to consult with someone qualified to point you in the right direction. If you can't do an in person consultation and fitting, your next best thing is to do it over the phone or via email.

I've heard from 2 different Tour players that the TM wedges with the new Z-TP faces really spin a lot less than the C-C Vokeys. Several guys have gone away from the TM wedges as a result. I played with my brother on the weekend and he was using the Z-TP and there were a few times where he hit shots that should have stopped even with the new grooves and they just rolled out that little bit more than expected...... One chip out of the rough it was very noticeable..... Granted it was the only time he was in the rough and the grooves didn't stop him from making 9 birdies......

I will say that the 48* head he has is the best looking wedge I've ever seen.

Grinds can obviously be customized, so the sole shouldn't be a major issue if you are looking to find the best wedges for your game and are willing to go the custom route which is key if you truly want to play what is best for your game. Otherwise, it comes down to finding a head that suits your eye and finding one that has the best performance in terms of the grooves which I think gets overlooked and taken for granted more than just about anything else when it comes to wedges.

Eventhough there are limitations and maximum requirements when it comes to groove volume, depth, spacing, and edge radius, it does not mean that all grooves are basically designed to perform to the max and will all be the same. The spin and consistency (or lack thereof) that is created by some of the more poorly designed heads that are out there can really cost you strokes whether the average player realizes it or not. It doesn't matter if you have the most perfectly crafted and fit wedge grind if the head that it is applied to is poorly designed or cheaply manufactured. You may prefer Ping, Cleveland, Titleist, TM, or Callaway wedges which is fine. But, I would suggest not taking the grooves in a head for granted and assuming that it's just all about the right loft, bounce, and look of a wedge. They are some of the most important clubs in your bag and in general are probably the most poorly fit ones as well simply because a lot of golfers take the choices that they have for granted and do not realize the performance differences that exist as you we all know and expect in a driver for instance.

When I look at bag pics posted on this site and others. I see vokey wedges in more pro bags that are not on staff with them then any other. Mostly you see others playing the 60's. I think the reason is they feel softest and spin hard. All the wedges also have different feel from really firm to soft.

I agree. From what I've seen, more non-staffers will play vokeys than any other brand. I'd say Cleveland is second with callaway being third. You don't see too many non-staffers playing Ping (except when the Eye2 was briefly allowed this year) or TM lately. Other than that, I think the rest play the brand they are on staff with. Obviously, there are the exceptions like the guys playing Fourteen wedges.
