Anyone using yet? I have the SM5s and recently got a Callaway MD3 just to try something different. However, I keep hitting it thin and I'm thinking maybe the weight feels slightly different and I'm not used to it. (I have the same shaft in it as the Titleists). Anyway, I hit the SM6 a little in the shop and it seems solid. I think the head is slightly smaller than the SM5? I'm not that good a wedge player, so giving up hitting surface might not be a good idea.

 

Anybody seeing a discernible difference between SM5 and SM6?

I just got mine two days ago and haven't been to the course yet to try it out. They changed the weighting or COG quite a bit depending on which degree you get. I don't know if I'm good enough to tell

After today's round I am considering lobbying my wife to name our son Vokey.   Was going at pins all day with these clubs and they were a big factor in both my 15 GIRs today, and getting up and down

I just got mine two days ago and haven't been to the course yet to try it out. They changed the weighting or COG quite a bit depending on which degree you get. I don't know if I'm good enough to tell the difference on ball flight but it sounds like a good idea. I'm anxious to get to the course and try them out though.

I have a 62* with the M grind - was awesome over the past week on full and partial shots from some pretty gnarly bermuda (which I only play on once a year).  It feels far more solid to me than did the 60* SM5 I had.

UPDATE! Now that I have been able to swing my new SM6 a few times and really work the kinks out, I can't believe I ever stopped playing Vokey wedges. IMHO they are just the best wedges. Full disclosure, I haven't played a lot of smaller wedge companies that make good products, but I've tried just about every other major OEM wedge and Vokey's just get the job done for me. I was hitting my Wilson Staff wedge side by side with the SM6 and the biggest difference I noticed on green side chips was the difference in how the clubs interacted with the turf. The SM6 cut through the grass so much better. I was amazed that with my crappy golf game that I could feel the difference. I'm very pleased with my purchase and for the time being, I'll be playing Vokey's for the foreseeable future.

Thanks for the update Chris O. I need a new set of wedges and I hit my friends SM5s to test out Vokey. I couldn't believe how nice the feel was compared to my Clevelands. Thanks again.

The SM6's currently cost $150, and the SM5's are now $110. I bought 3 SM5s in January. I can't believe how much more solid they feel compared to my Clevelands, which i played for years: CG10, 12, 15 in all lofts. The ball feels soft on the SM5 faces, i can control the trajectory, and full shots are consistently predictable. I'll never go back!

Cool. I'll definitely have to try them out. Hopefully I can hit them out on the course somewhere.

Have sm5 46-50-54-58 not enough to make me go all in and buy new as always vokeys are sweet but not a big enough difference in my game to change

I have to agree, and I wasn't a fan of the increased top line. I got the Callaway pm grind and absolutely hate the kbs shaft, surprised it's also about 1/2 to 1/4 shorter than my vokey 58.

I love the feel and i'm seeing increased spin with this wedge around the greens.

I got my SM 6's last month, upgrading from Nike VRS wedges from 2012. I can't believe how different they feel. Every strike seems solid, even when I miss off the toe. I got 50° f, 54° s, and 58°m grind. The different grinds gives me a ton of shot versatility. Highly recommended. Even the SM 5's at $110 are great if you don't want to spend the extra cash.

I believe it was a $20 upcharge via custom order.
