  2. Brand new to the forum, tried the search function but couldn't find what i was looking for, my apologies. I was hoping to get some information on the Malty tour grind wedges. Currently gaming cobra PUR wedges, i have absolutely loveeed these wedges, but alas, it's time to replace them and ever since i replaced my iron set ( titleist 710 cb) with the maltby te forged i have been extremely curious about their wedges. The irons are money. I freaking love my irons! So now i'm highly considering the wedges, specifically the tour grinds because they seem to be the closest in profile to my current wedges. Also considering the Kinetixx wedge shafts. The only reviews i can find on them seem to be on the golfworks website though. Can't find any videos on youtube etc about their wedge shafts, specifically. So if any of you good folks have gamed, are gaming these, i would love to hear what you have to say. TSW wedges would be my 2nd choice of their wedges.
  3. CARLSBAD, Calif. (February 23, 2021) – The overwhelming most played and best performing wedges in the game – Vokey Design SM8 –are now available in an ultra-premium Slate Blue finish. Master Wedge Craftsman Bob Vokey has always stressed the importance of players having confidence in their wedge at address – and finish plays a key role. “A player has to love their wedge when they look down at it,” said Vokey, whose short game tools account for nearly half of all wedges played on the PGA Tour. The finish on the Vokey SM8 Slate Blue wedges is applied like a PVD finish, but with a unique material and more time intensive process that combine to provide a deep, rich slate blue color that is extremely durable. “Very often, wedge finishes can be beautiful, but they won’t last,” said Vokey. “At the same time, the most durable finishes often aren’t stunning. Slate Blue combines the two. Not only will golfers love their wedge when they see it in the shop, the finish will last through the course of normal play.” Consistent with all Vokey Design SM8 finishes, Slate Blue is available in all 23 loft, bounce, and grind options (both RH/LH), while supplies last. Slate Blue also incorporates the technology that sets SM8 wedges apart: Groundbreaking Progressive Center of Gravity (CG) pushed forward of the face for increased MOI, improved consistency and softer, more solid feel. 100% Inspected Spin Milled grooves that are cut with a level of precision that is unique by finish, producing maximum spin. Vokey Design SM8 models are also available in Tour Chrome, Brushed Steel, Raw and Jet Black finishes. For assistance determining the right loft, bounce and grind, golfers can use the Wedge Selector tool on Vokey.com: https://www.vokey.com/tools/wedge-selector-tool.aspx AVAILABILITY AND PRICING: Vokey Design SM8 Slate Blue wedges will be available in golf shops beginning Friday, March 19th (MAP $199). They will also be available for customization and purchase on Vokey.com. STOCK SHAFT AND GRIP: The Slate Blue stock setup features a True Temper Dynamic Gold S200 shaft and custom Blue/White BV Wings New Decade Multi Compound grip. Most custom shafts and grips are included at no up charge. Additional customizations such as character stamping are available for an additional fee. VISIT US ON THE WEB: www.vokey.com
  4. Been on the forum for a bit now, just wanted to talk about what’s in my bag and what everyone else has working (or not working) for them. I have just recently changed drivers, that being the Taylormade SIM Max 10.5 degree. I took the shaft (HZRDUS 6.0 76g with the yellow writing, not the smoke) from my PING G30 and had the new tip installed because I absolutely love it and they are harder to find now for some reason. Aside from that, I have had the same clubs In the bag for roughly 3-4 years now. As mentioned, I have the new sim driver, ping g30 3 wood and 3 hybrid (both stock stiff shaft), Mizuno MP59 irons with KBS tour 120 stiff shafts, Vokey SM5 wedges (50,56,60), scotty Cameron select Newport blade from 2015. I usually play a taylormade TP5 but I will hit whatever is in the bag. I have hit ProV1’s, Srixon soft feel, Bridgestone b330, pinnacle soft (laugh it up), and almost anything out of the weeds that will fly and roll (ha). I was fitted for my irons and I absolutely love them. Great feel, lofts are not too aggressive or passive, can work the ball (to the best of my ability) with them, and they sound magical (for me sound is psychologically either a confidence boost or bust). My irons have come light years from where they were prior to being fitted so I would absolutely recommend letting someone who knows what they’re doing fit you for irons. And most people will say “I would not suggest a blade and I would bet you’re not good enough to play them). Well it’s more of a MB and I swear the smaller an iron you can hit, the more you will rely on your striking ability and skill than just hoping the club will help you out because you know you’re going to mis hit it. Don’t get me wrong, game improvement absolutely has a place but if you can convince yourself to just try more of a players type club you will not be disappointed. Even my dad who is around a +11-12 handicapper hit my 7 iron several times on the range and said “wow, that feels amazing and it gives way more feedback than my irons. So irons are kind of a personal thing but I would definitely recommend getting fit. It’s like wearing shoes that fit and walking all day as opposed to borrowing a size too big or small and trying to make them work. Anyway, on to the next. I absolutely love the new driver, I was fitted for my PING and my dad actually purchased the sim prior to me getting it. The sound of that thing was magical and I loved the look. Not swapping shafts I kind of gambled and just went with the same degree and the max instead of the regular sim. I don’t work the ball a ton with a driver so the added forgiveness was more appealing to me because realistically the number differences were nominal when I hit them in the pro shop. It was a good gamble, I consistently hit the ball straighter as compared to the ping and we all know keeping the ball in the fairway will lower your score quicker than anything. My spin was slightly lower with the sim than the ping and that also adds to the straighter flight I’m sure. And I assume the twistface has helped my mishits. Could be wrong, but it seems that way. I usually carry the driver around 265-270 and on a good striking day maybe a little further. No superhero drives usually. Lol. If I could hit it straight and 250 every time and I would sell my soul. Wedges are as I said the sm5 vokey wedges (50,56,60) and I know most of you will rip me for playing a 50 instead of a 52 to keep my gapping more consistent. But hey, it works for me using a controlled swing and a knockdown swing with the 50 and then being able to nip the 56 and 60 closer to the greens to give me a little more control. Bunker shots I usually go for the 56 just so I don’t have to really swing for the fence but if I’m short sided or want it to stop a little faster I will use the 60. I love them but this is one reason I’m posting this, I want to know what everyone hits that works!! Putter, Scotty, and I firmly believe everyone is different when it comes to a putter so I’m not making any suggestions or comments on what putter because I believe you should use what works for you and what you feel comfortable with. let’s hear what you guys like or dislike in my bag and what’s in your bag that I need to have a look at!! Q
  5. I decided to spring for two new wedges. I submitted my info to Callaway's online fitting and received recommendations for PM19 wedges in the two lofts I was considering: 54º and 58º Prices were good at CPO, plus I just received a mailing offering of a single use code for an additional 35% off on 1 order. The thing is: Callaway sent me two offers with different codes, they have my full name and my short name in their database. The discount as good before the codes, and even better after so, I went the Full Monty. I read MGS review of the wedges, kinda mixed, but generally favorable. Tony's chief criticism was the offset, which wasn't all that harsh; but it's not something that would make a world of difference to me, and could actually help me. Now that I've committed to them, I am interested in the opinions and thoughts of people who have actually played them. Tell me what you liked, didn't like, what you experienced; and let me know if you still play them, or had to get them out of your bag. I currently play Harry Taylor 350 wedges in those lofts, and I think they're great. But, it's been 4 years and I like to try different things after that amount of time. Share your experiences, please!
  6. Anyone here play any Yururi equipment. In particular I am curious about the Yururi Gekku Raw. These are some the most beautiful golf clubs I've ever seen. As far as I can tell on tour spec and fairwaygolf they seem like a good quality club. http://www.tourspecgolf.com/blog/yururi-gekku-raw-wedge-a-classic-standout/
  7. Hi, I just wanted to share my experience with cold bluing my wedges. The pictures on the left were the wedges after being soaked in coke overnight and rubbed with a steel whool. I used birchwood casey's bluing kit to blue my wedges and they turned out amazing! So if anyone was wondering if they could do this themselves, well, you absolutely can ;).
  8. Testers Wanted (5) There’s something about RAW wedges that elicits a mixed bag of reactions from golfers. Some swear it gives them more spin—that’s a topic for another day—some say they prefer the look of shiny chrome, tour satin or jet-black finish. Remember the days of one choice? At one time the options were so few, many took to the home version of RAW by soaking wedges in Coke and other methods to get them to rust. The last few years have seen many OEM’s offer a RAW version of their wedges. With Cleveland Golf having successfully launched the new RTX Zip Core wedges in the summer, it now is offering the wedge in the popular RAW or it is officially called Tour Rack finish. So, we’re going to let you tell us if raw is better. Testers Wanted We are looking for FIVE dedicated golfers who will receive two wedges in the loft they choose to provide an in depth 4 to 6-week commitment to testing the Tour Rack Zip Core wedges. Testing is open to Right Hand golfers who reside in the US. To Apply please provide the following information: First Name/City State Handicap Current Model Wedges Played What Appeals to You About a Raw Wedge We'll be choosing the testers next week, so check back to see if you have been selected. DO NOT QUOTE THIS POST WHEN APPLYING, APPLY IN A SEPERATE POST IN THIS THREAD
  9. How often in a round do folks use a lob wedge? I’ve been carrying a lob wedge for a years now. And honestly don’t find myself using it all that often. When I do carry it, I remove my driving iron. When I do that I more often miss the driving iron on the tight holes. Anyone else have a similar experience?

  11. In the golf club world, where most companies insist on renaming or launching a new name after one or two iterations of a club, to see a company stick with a name into the 4th generation....well that must say something about the winning formula they have. Below is a video from Cleveland Golf on it's RTX4 wedge. Then we have four members of our forum who are in the process of testing these wedges to see how they perform for their games. See their initial thoughts in the Stage 1 posts below, and follow their on course and on range experiences with them in this thread over the next 4 weeks or so.

  12. CLEVELAND GOLF ANNOUNCES THE CLEVELAND CBX FULL-FACE AND SMART SOLE 4 WEDGES HUNTINGTON BEACH, Calif. – Jan. 21, 2020 – Cleveland Golf is proud to announce the release of two new wedge offerings: the Cleveland CBX Full-Face and the Smart Sole 4. Built with grooves across the entire face, the Cleveland CBX Full-Face delivers a larger face area and more versatility to make difficult greenside shots easier, while the Smart Sole 4 makes the short game easier. Cleveland’s Smart Sole 4 will launch in North America on Feb. 7, 2020, while the Cleveland CBX Full-Face will launch in North America on Feb. 28, 2020. CLEVELAND CBX FULL-FACE The Cleveland CBX Full-Face is a new wedge model that focuses on offering maximum short game versatility with added forgiveness for all those delicate shots around the green. “Our new Cleveland CBX Full-Face is a perfect way to complete our wedge lineup,” said Brian Schielke, Marketing Director at Cleveland Golf. “It helps golfers execute the most demanding shots they’ll encounter thanks to a larger striking surface with extended grooves running across the face. It does this while maintaining great feel and the signature forgiveness golfers have come to expect in every Cleveland CBX wedge.” Cleveland CBX Full-Face provides a high toe profile that is perfect for sliding under the golf ball on the most aggressive short game shot. The Cleveland CBX Full-Face delivers a unique half-cavity design with a cavity near the heel and solid muscle back on the toe, which pushes the center of gravity away from the heel and closer in line with strike patterns for improved consistency and feel. Additionally, the Cleveland CBX Full-Face takes Rotex Face Milling to the next level by extending across the entire face of the wedge for more spin and unmatched stopping power. Cleveland CBX Full-Face features a C-Shaped sole grind, which provides extra relief on the heel and toe for ultimate short game versatility. Here is a breakdown of the key innovations inside the Cleveland CBX Full-Face: High Toe Profile: Hit more extreme open face shots with an extended toe portion, perfect for sliding under the golf ball and striking it on the toe. Rotex Full Face: Rotex Milling, Laser Milling, and Tour Zip Grooves cover every millimeter of the hitting surface, ensuring maximum versatility with maximum spin. Half-Cavity Design: A cavity near the heel, a solid muscle back on the toe. We’ve moved the sweet spot right where you’re most likely to hit the ball, improving feel and pushing forgiveness levels off the charts. Low C-Shaped Sole: Optimized for open face shots, Full-Face offers our lowest Cleveland CBX grind to date. It’s also C-Shaped for relief on the heel and toe, allowing for unhindered face manipulation. Cleveland’s CBX Full-Face wedges are offered in 4 loft options (56°, 58°, 60°, and 64°) and are priced at $149.99 MAP. SMART SOLE 4 WEDGES The Smart Sole 4 from Cleveland Golf delivers a simpler short game system with a wedge designed for every shot. Here is a breakdown of the three different Smart Sole 4 wedges: the C model engineered for foolproof chip shots, an S model for easier sand saves, and a new G model for additional forgiveness on approach shots into the green. Smart Sole 4 features an extra wide sole across all three models with extra leading edge bounce to ensure crisp, clean contact and better stability. Upgraded Feel Balancing Technology adjusts the center of gravity closer to sweet spot for better feel, while new premium milled grooves channel moisture and debris away from the impact zone for improved spin performance from any conditions. Below are the key innovations inside the Smart Sole 4 Wedges: Enhanced Three-Tiered Sole: An extra wide three-tiered sole, with added leading edge bounce, provides maximum forgiveness from the fairway, rough or out of the bunker. Improved Feel Balancing Technology: The redistribution of weight from the hosel allows the center of gravity to be moved closer to the center of the clubface for better feel and more consistency. Aggressive Milled Grooves: New aggressive milled grooves generate better spin performance from any conditions. New Gap Wedge: The addition of the “G” model provides full-shot capability and extensive versatility to go along with the “S” and “C” models. Cleveland’s Smart Sole 4 wedges are offered in three different models. The C model (42°), G model (50°), and S model (58°) come in right and left-handed options as well as Men’s and Women’s offerings. Smart Sole 4 wedges are priced at $119.99 MAP for Men’s Steel and $129.99 for Men’s Graphite, while the Women’s Smart Sole 4 wedges are priced at $119.99 MAP for graphite.
  13. I decided to use this down time to get the tools and materials necessary to stamp my wedges. I got a 1/8" letter/number stamp set, small (3") anvil, oil-based paint pens and acetone (to clean off paint). I plan to experiment on some old wedges before I do anything to the gamers. Has anyone does this and have any advice or "lessons learned" to help guide me?
  14. Recently got back into the game and looking to make an upgrade in my wedges. I currently play Cleveland CG12s and I absolutely love my 56 (I think the bounce is 14), but it is time to replace. Where should I be looking to start and what bounce grinds are out there now that are similar/a true upgrade? First post so let me know exactly how many forum rules I just broke.
  15. I received these wedges a few weeks ago from the Golfworks, and I thought I better post something since I had asked for opinions about them in another thread. I'll do my best to make this as real of a review as possible. I ordered 54-degree mid-sole and 60-degree wide sole M+ Series wedges with regular shafts from Golfworks for my birthday. I have completely rebuilt my bag over the past few months. Prior to owning these wedges, I only played with a 50-degree gap wedge from my old iron set and a 56-degree Nike SV Tour wedge that was almost exclusively used for flop type shots. The gap wedge in my Wilson C300 irons is 48 degrees, so these fit in six-degree increments from my irons. These were part of what Golfworks calls "Club Paks," which are grips, shafts, ferrules and heads sold for cheaper than the individual component cost. They also come with free assembly if you so desire. I opted for free assembly as I don't have my golf workshop fully setup (or even stocked!) yet. Golfworks offers three different sole widths (tour, mid, wide) from 50 degrees to 62 degrees in two degree increments. The packs offer a choice of regular or stiff shaft and undersize, standard, midsize or oversize grip. The package I purchased included the wedge head, a KBS Hi-Rev 2.0 regular flex wedge shaft, ferrule and a standard Lamkin Crossline grip. Each package cost $52.99. For two wedges, with taxes and shipping, I paid $123.99 total, or about $62 each. First, some pictures for those interested. Please note these pictures were taken after an indoor range session. The ball marks were not there when purchased! Customer Service and Shipping I placed the order in mid-January, requesting free assembly and the clubs to be assembled to +1/2" from the Golfworks standard. The C300s are +1/2" from standard Golfworks lengths as well, so by opting to make the wedges a little longer they fit into the C300 lengths. Almost immediately I received a call from someone at Golfworks confirming I was requesting the clubs be built longer than their normal standard. I unfortunately missed this call and neglected to check my voicemail for more than a week. Whoops. Thankfully, within the next week someone else reached out to me and this time I caught the message. After calling to confirm the length, I also received a follow up email confirming my build specs. On this email I was able to request the grip be placed logo up and the shaft label to be placed logo down. Once the order was released to the club builders, it took only a day or two for it to ship Priority Mail, and then just another two days to receive the clubs. The clubs were securely packaged in transport and were received in perfect condition. Build Quality These seem to be built very well for the price. The heads look very finished. The black DBM finish Golfworks uses is very nice, and it is supposed to hold up much better than PVD. The grips were put on straight and the Crosslines feel as expected (the C300s come stock with Crosslines as well). Perhaps the only thing I could say is that the ferrules were not buffed to a perfectly smooth surface. Small gripe, I know. Size / Shape / Etc. I don't feel I am overly picky with wedges. The head shape seems traditional, not too big or small, and fits my eye fine. Black finish is matte and shouldn't cause any problems with glare. I opted for the wide sole 60-degree wedge as an "easy to swing" option from the sand or close to the green. You cannot really open the 60-degree up because of the wide sole. Until I can get out on the course and actually play, I don't know how this will affect my use of this club. I do think it will be very nice from thick rough as the wider sole should help keep the club face from being grabbed too much. The mid-sole 54-degree wedge has the perfect sole width for what I envision its use to be -- nearly full swing shots from the fairway. It feels more like my short irons than a "blade-y" wedge. I would probably opt for the mid-sole on the 60-degree wedge if I could go back in time. Feel / Playability I got a chance to hit a few range balls two weekends ago. I don't particularly care for hitting wedges from mats, but I probably hit 10 balls or so with each club. As you may be able to see in the pictures, I had a few poor strikes and a few good ones. The new grooves and milled face definitely shredded some cover off of the balls. I am still working on some swing changes, so there were some ugly hooks mixed in, but I was impressed with the ease of which the Hi-Revs launched and the stopping power. Using the 60-degree wedge I was able to get a ball to stay on the ice-covered 70-yard green, impressive to say the least. I was also able to hit the 54-degree wedge consistent in the 70-100 yard range, which is my expected use case. Because I ordered these +1/2", they come in a little heavier than standard specs. Based on my cheap Golfworks scale, they both are about at D6 swingweight. For comparison, my C300s are D2 across the set. I won't be able to play outdoors for another few weeks at the earliest, but I am excited to get these into real action. Final Thoughts (For now...) I think these are an excellent value for $62, especially given the more expensive shaft option. They do have cheaper "pak" options with this head in the $40 range as well. I doubt there is a ton of reason to spend more on a wedge. Golfworks also routinely runs a free shipping promotion on orders greater than $60, so you can save a couple more dollars by waiting for that as well. My biggest concern at this point is whether the regular flex shafts were too soft of a choice, though I won't know for sure until I get out on the course.
  16. This press release deserves it's own thread if for no other reason, it's the first announcement of a "new" product since the Pandemic Shutdown 6 weeks ago. Possible signs that the major OEM's are getting back to work! NEW CUSTOM WEDGE PROGRAM OFFERS THOUSANDS OF COMBINATIONS TO PERSONALIZE THE COMPANY’S LATEST WEDGE OFFERINGS CARLSBAD, Calif. (May 4, 2020) – TaylorMade Golf Company, an industry leader in innovation and technology, introduces the MyMG2 personalized wedge program. The company continues to grow its personalized offerings, with the latest installment in the TaylorMade “My” family joining MySpider X, MyHi-Toe and MySpider. The program is inspired by trends seen on the PGA Tour where players personalize wedges with stamping to display their unique personalities. TaylorMade is now giving all golfers the ability to make each wedge uniquely their own and deliver a service that has historically been reserved for the game’s top players. With Raw Face Technology and the Milled Grind sole, MG2 wedges are the ultimate in consistency and precision. With the new MyMG2, now you’re able to make it precisely your own. We offer a number of personalization options so you can design a wedge that’s truly unique to your game and your preferences. Bill Price, Senior Director of Product Creation, Putter & Wedge GOLFERS CAN SELECT FROM FOUR DIFFERENT FINISHES INCLUDING COBALT NICKEL, CHROME, BLACK AND RAW Cobalt Nickel: Exclusive to MyMG2, the Nickel finish provides a premium look and reduces glare at address. Chrome: The classic look of a chrome finish preferred by many golfers. Black: A darker, aggressive styling with a non-glare look at address. RAW Finish: This is an un-plated wedge that will rust – giving it the worn, rustic look preferred by many Tour athletes (extent and speed of rusting may vary). Custom stamping options include personalized text and initials, as well as dozens of images. Golfers choose from 13 different paint fills and complete the package by selecting the grip and shaft of their choice. Beyond personalized aesthetics, golfers can build the wedge to their precise specs by customizing loft, lie, length and grip size. FEATURES AND TECHNOLOGY Similar to the original Milled Grind wedges and also found in the P·7TW™ irons, MyMG2 wedges feature the company’s proven CNC milling technology, which allows for the production of wedges to exacting specifications. Each leading edge and sole grind is individually CNC milled for unparalleled accuracy and consistency from club to club and grind to grind. MyMG2 wedges are engineered to generate the most aggressive spin of any wedge in the TaylorMade family. The combination of precision-milling and Raw Face Technology is designed for increased spin, precision and feel. The face rusts over time to preserve consistent spin while the rest of the head maintains its original finish – in the case of the MyMG2 RAW wedge, the entire head will rust. MyMG2 is available now on www.taylormadegolf.com at a price of $225.
  17. I have been using my new MG2 for a few weeks now and really like the feel. I have 2 other Taylormade wedges that I have used for the last few years and this one just feels different. It also passes the eye test as I seem to be getting more spin on the ball than I have before with the other wedges. Would like to know others thoughts on them. Thanks.
  18. Have been going through a complete overhaul of my bag the last 2 seasons. Have upgraded Driver, 3 wood (both Cobra) irons just this year with some custom fit M5s now looking to upgrade wedges and putters Im about a 13 handicap. But have been always been a better than average putter. Looking for a new Blade style putter. Read the recent testing review article but just wanted to see if anyone had any personal recommendations or feed back. Wedges I am open to anything although I have been playing with a 56 and 60 degree last few years. Thanks for reading and look forward to hearing what you guys have to say.
  19. Saw this in a newsletter from On Core; TK "keeping it real" on what most am players should (or not) be looking for in their wedges....... http://www.golfwrx.com/552364/the-wedge-guy-a-discussion-of-bounce/?utm_source=Front&utm_medium=Featured_Trending&utm_campaign=GolfWRX_OnSite&utm_content=unused
  20. Matt Saternus (used to be with MGS) of PluggedInGolf.com posted an interesting article... "Do wedge shafts matter?" https://pluggedingolf.com/do-wedge-shafts-matter-golf-myths-unplugged/ He tested in a similar style to MGS using a variety of recreational players and identical wedge heads with different shafts, then swapping them among the players and having them hit different short game shots. Results are measured by Trackman at a Club Champion. The questions he was looking to "Confirm" or "Bust" include... Myth #1 – A wedge shaft can create more spin Myth #2 – A wedge shaft can change launch angle Myth #3 – A wedge shaft can improve accuracy Myth #4 – A wedge shaft can improve consistency Myth #5 – The same shaft will fit all your wedges Interesting and informative article .. worth a look! https://pluggedingolf.com/do-wedge-shafts-matter-golf-myths-unplugged/
  21. So much about this booth I loved. From (Drivers...though we have a great thread on that and they were crazy busy so no pics here of those) irons, slate blue wedges and putters. Be sure to check out the Putter Forum for a couple exciting offerings.
  22. This is pretty cool, and I'm sure we'll get some saying $260 plus for a wedge is ridiculously expensive, but again, it's not being force on anyone, it's an option that has in the past only been available to the most elite players in the world, that is now available to anyone wanting to buy the service. Press Release: Master Craftsman Bob Vokey is now offering the tour grinding experience to all golfers through the introduction of the new HandGround program on Vokey.com. For golfers seeking tour-level customizations such as additional heel relief, a squared up leading edge, or Bob’s popular tour grind, the HandGround program is the answer. For the last year, Bob has personally trained two grinders on all of the performance and profile adjustments that have resulted from his more than two decades of work with the world’s best players. Bob’s passion for building relationships with individual players is the essence of the Vokey brand. Voke takes the time to listen to a player’s wants and, more importantly, their needs, when hitting wedge shots. He then takes this information back to the tour truck and starts grinding heads. The process can be lengthy, but when it is done right, it is worth the wait. Bob will oversee the entire HandGround process – located in a new workspace adjacent to the Titleist Tour Department, inside the Titleist Golf Club headquarters in Carlsbad, Calif. – and, from time to time, will also grind HandGround orders himself. QUOTING BOB VOKEY: “This takes me back to my roots - one player at a time, one wedge at a time, crafting the sole to the player's exact specifications.” HANDGROUND OPTIONS: In selecting the HandGround option – currently available on all Vokey SM7 Raw models, the preferred finish of tour players worldwide – golfers will be able to choose from a variety of performance and profile adjustments (two adjustments maximum). • Performance adjustments: As course conditions change, tour players make adjustments to their wedges to improve turf interaction by grinding material off the sole of the wedge. These grinds allow the player to change the wedge’s playing characteristics based on their unique swingtype and course conditions resulting in finely tuned performance. Performance adjustments include: - Pre-Worn Leading Edge - Smooth Grind Lines - Heel Relief - Trailing Edge Relief • Profile adjustments: Having the right head shape inspires confidence. Voke works with tour players to dial-in the head shape that fits each player’s eye. Profile adjustments allow the golfer to design a confidence-inspiring head shape by grinding material off the profile. Profile adjustments include: - Semi-Square Leading Edge - Thin Top Line - Tour Grind (smooths all profile lines & slightly reduces profile size) For detailed explanations of each performance and profile adjustment, click here: https://www.vokey.com/nav/handground.aspx HANDGROUND SETS: With F, K and L Grind wedges, golfers also have the option to make specific grind selections:
 - F Grind: Make it an S Grind. For example, golfers that prefer their 52.12 F gap wedge to have a touch more versatility greenside may enjoy this option. - K Grind: Make it a J Grind (Heel & trailing edge relief) - L Grind: Make it an A Grind (Smooth the grind lines) ON THE WEB: https://www.vokey.com/nav/handground.aspx AVAILABILITY: HandGround wedges are now available on all SM7 Raw models through Vokey.com. SM7 Raw wedges – including BV Wings grip and 10-character stamping – start at $195. There is an additional $75 charge for HandGround services.
  23. Just got some Artisan Wedges created by Mike Taylor:
  24. When do you expect Titleist to release the SM7 wedges?
  25. Something occurred to me last night for the first time. Probably because I just went through a recent fitting where I was making sure I was still a midsize grip. I have always had my iron grips in midsize for as long as I can remember. But last night as I was grabbing a hybrid, with the stock grip, it made me wonder why I never considered getting a midsize grip for my hybrid, or driver, of FW or wedges for that matter. So those that have midsize grips, do you have throughout the entire set or just irons? What are your thoughts either way on the subject?
