Always liked the look of the Vokey wedges but never actually owned one. After catching part of the community call on Thursday I took a closer look and really loved the look of the SM9 brushed steel. 
A quick perusal of my usual haunts on the interweb revealed an ex display one, in my exact specs from the online fitting tool, for £90. Snapped it up and it arrived todayIMG_5470.jpeg.14b026801a55f2b7f0ecf3f0bad7f8c2.jpegpIMG_5469.jpeg.52b56b8369285862f1aa515ece2fb1a7.jpeg

There are some very minor marks on the sole but very minimal and apart from that it’s as new. Hopefully I’ll put it into action on the course tomorrow

That's a good looking wedge for the price! I had a set of SM7'S and the 52 became a trusty club around the green. I hope you like it!

Based on MGS recommendation and Sub70's 30% off, I decided to buy 2 of their Wedges ... a 54 & 58.

Tried them at the range today.  Hit 15 full shots with my PING Glide 54, all solid, straight shots.   Hit 15 shots with my new Sub70 54.  Shanked 12 out of 15.   Hit 15 shots with my Callaway PM Grind 54 ... all quality shots.

Hit 10 shots with the Sub70 58 Degree.  Shanked 8.   Hit 15 shots with my PING Glide 58 ... all quality shots.

I'm not going to speculate why, only mention that I'm a 5 handicap at 71 years old and a pretty good wedge player.

I did have a similar problem 20+ years ago, with (2) Scratch Wedges (Ari Techner) made for me.  I never could hit them.

Also, the Sub70 Wedges were supposed to be customized to +1/2" over and 1 degree upright.   The 58 arrived 3/8" longer than the 54.  I don't have a digital loft/lie, so I can't be sure about the lie.

On the other side of the spectrum, it's clear to me, why MGS found these wedges to be so accurate.  I don't think I've ever played a wedge, easier to set up to the target line.  I'm not sure why this is, but chipping with them was dead on every time.

Nice. I hadn't owned a Vokey wedge before picking up my 60* SM9 yesterday. I wanted a low bounce lob wedge and one with just the right specs was begging to be bought.lol

Agreed, brushed steel looks fantastic.

Unfortunately, I missed the community call. What was mentioned about the Vokeys?

Thanks Ben. I was going to go search for the recording to watch. I'll take a look. I appreciate it!

So many people swear by Vokeys I'm looking forward to trying this lob wedge out. I like the Taylormade MG3s and have heard great things about the MG4, but gaming a Vokey scratches a persistent itch.lol

I understand, having gamed both Vokeys and MG3’s, you can’t really go wrong with either. Enjoy 😁

Been thinking about these grips since the member testing last year, but picked up some Lamkin Sonar+ Blackout standard grips.

Have one earmarked for the AutoFlex Dream7 shaft coming in, three I'd like to swap out the Winn grips on my wedges, and the fifth for my 3-wood. Tried a couple Star Sidewinder grips to start the season, but my hands are just too moist to ever get comfortable with them.

Been playing these in the midsize since they came out. Over 40 rounds in and with just a little routine maintenance with soap and water they look almost brand new still. Perfect combination of not too soft and traction IMO.

Mini Ball scrubber for the garage, and this glove retainer thingy... which still doesn't make sense on its purpose to me, as i just throw em in the golf bag pouch anyway...

Not gonna lie at first glance you had me there for a second thinking that was ment for something else other than a glove retainer!

In an attempt to get some organization to my golf equipment at home, I’ve been researching equipment racks to see what my options are. I’d like to just build a nice wooden one but now is not the time. I was browsing through Facebook Marketplace and had one pop up on my search within a few minutes of it being posted. Picked it up for $20 and I think that it will fit the bill nicely. I’d still like to build one but, at a later date.

I also ordered up some TP5pix practice from the TaylorMade website. I like to collect these and made out pretty well with a good variety. Seven new ones for my collection wall and 17 for the shag bag when I do some practice at the munis.

Yeah, I was pretty happy about that and they fit well on my rack with the PGA Championship one that I found on course.

You got me thinking and digging through the TaylorMade website to see which ball would be for the 2023 US Open and I believe that it also came with my recent purchase so the quest is done!
