A gap in the market

This has hissed me off for years.why craft a set of players clubs but never offer a matching iron to fill the gap between 46 to 56 degrees!.( eg MP64,MP4,MP5,JPX900  TOUR).it used to be a pitching wedge,but the games moved on.so now we have to hunt down a stick that doesn't quite look the same at address probably doesn't quite feel the same on impact and may just react differently to the rest of the set on a full shot.while still blending into what is considered the holy grail of scoring ,YES THE SHORT GAME.come give us the choice please

If you haven't looked for a while, you'll notice that the T7 wedges in the lower lofts do have a much more pitching wedge type shape about them.  There's a pretty easy transition into the specialist wedges now.

Maybe wasn't the case a few generations back - but been addressed.

Something I noticed about a lot of the Callaway iron sets through the years is that they had a gap, sand and lob wedge made to match a lot of their iron sets. Granted, those were primarily game improvement sets. Maybe better players using blades or better player's irons prefer more specialized wedges, but it's never made much difference to me.

Maybe if I was so good I could ID a deficiency in that system, I'd feel differently, but I still wonder why more sets don't offer wedges all the way through the lob wedge.
I've had a good day if I didn't fall out of the cart...
