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 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.

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 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.

Yep, I'll continue getting them from the True Temper rep I deal with. Plus I got the wedges at PUD so yeah...

      Press Release from Titleist
      Tour-Proven Design Sets Tone for 2020 Jet Black Collection
        FAIRHAVEN, Mass. (Aug. 13, 2019) – The introduction of the new Titleist Tour Bag – making its debut for the FedExCup Playoffs – signals a distinct and modern upgrade on the fairways of the PGA Tour and professional tours around the world.
          Styled and designed based on feedback from tour players and their caddies, in addition to input from PGA golf professionals, the new Tour Bag offers a glimpse into Titleist’s forthcoming 2020 Jet Black Collection that will feature products ranging from stand bags and cart bags to leather headcovers and umbrellas.
        Representing a perfect blend of performance elements and refined detail, the key features of the Jet Black Collection are inspired by the new Tour Bag and incorporated into the entire line – including velour top cuff materials, premium ball pocket panels and luxurious quilted hip pads – reimagined in the Titleist brand colors of black, red, and white.
        “I’m absolutely pumped for the new tour bag,” said Justin Thomas. “We’ve been asking for a fresh, new look and the designers came through big. I love the blacked-out design with the red zippers – and that white Titleist script just pops. You can tell they’ve taken our feedback and thought about every little detail. It’s really slick.”     Thomas is one of more than 150 players that have used a Titleist Tour Bag this year on the PGA Tour, with more Titleist Tour Bags in play each week than any other brand.
             
       
      NEW TITLEIST TOUR BAG FEATURES
      • Hero product of the Jet Black Collection
      • Tour proven 3-point single shoulder strap
      • Durable materials and quilted highlights
      • Premium metal hardware
      • 5 Way top cuff with integrated handles
      • Magnetic, velour lined valuables pocket
      • New Interior organization in apparel pockets
        AVAILABILITY
      The Titleist Tour Bag ($550) is available in golf shops worldwide beginning Sept. 1, with the complete Jet Black Collection coming in early 2020.

      Is it fair to call them the No. 1 iron, driver, wedge in golf? 
      Some notes below from a press release on just how domimate Titleist is on tour this year. 
       
       
      PGA:  It was a Titleist Brand Ambassador 1-2-3 finish at the regular season-ending Wyndham Championship, where Titleist Brand Ambassador J.T. Poston earned his first career PGA TOUR victory … Poston finished one shot clear of Webb Simpson and two better than Ben An … Viktor Hovland (Pro V1), finished solo 4th, another shot back … Closing with a career-best eight-under par 62 en route to a tournament record-tying 22-under 258 victory total, Poston became the first player since 1974 to win a 72-hole stroke-play event on tour without any bogeys or worse … Simpson fired a final round 65 to secure his runner-up finish for the second straight week, while An, who held or shared the lead after each of the first three rounds, closed with a 67.
      >Eleven of the 12 players who finished among the top 10 and ties trusted Titleist golf balls for their success, and so did every other player who finished in the top 35 … That’s 34 of the top 35 finishers teed up a Pro V1 or Pro V1x with so much on the line at the PGA TOUR’s regular season finale.
      > Poston’s win advances the 2018-19 PGA TOUR victory total for Titleist golf ball players to 23, nearly four times the nearest competitor (6) and more than all other golf balls combined … A total of 120 (77%) players teed up a Titleist at the Wyndham Championship, more than eight times the nearest competitor with 14. 
      > What’s in the Titleist Bags of the top three finishers at the Wyndham Championship:
      J.T. Poston: Pro V1x, TS3 (9.5) driver, TS2 (15) fairway metal, 716 T-MB (3-5) and 718 AP2 (6-9) irons, Vokey Design SM7 pitching (46), gap (50), sand (55) and lob (60) wedges, Scotty Cameron GoLo putter.
       
      Webb Simpson: Pro V1, TS3 (10.5) driver, TS2 (15) and 913Fd (18) fairway metals, 913Hd (20) and 915Hd (23.5) hybrids, New 620 MB (5-PW) irons, Vokey Design SM7 gap (54) and prototype lob (60) wedges.
       
      Ben An: Pro V1x, TS3 (8.5) driver, U-500 2-iron, 716 T-MB (3-5) and 620 MB (6-9) irons, Vokey Design SM7 pitching (48), gap (52), sand (56) and prototype (60) lob wedges, Scotty Cameron TNP putter.
       
      > For the second time this season, the Titleist brand swept all eight major equipment categories on both the PGA TOUR and Korn Ferry Tour in the same week ... It is an achievement that had never been accomplished until Titleist made history by sweeping the Travelers Championship and Wichita Open in June ... The eight major tee-through-green equipment categories include golf balls, drivers, fairway metals, hybrids, utility irons, irons, wedges and putters ... The recently introduced T100 irons were the most played single model at the event with 15 sets in play, while the TS3 driver was the field favorite with 34.
      > At the Wyndham Championship, Titleist was the top choice across every category for the 11th time this year ... The other tournaments in which Titleist has topped every major equipment category include: 3M Open, Rocket Mortgage Classic, Travelers Championship, AT&T Byron Nelson, Wells Fargo Championship, Corales Puntacana Championship, Valspar Championship, Honda Classic, Farmers Insurance Open and Sony Open in Hawaii ... This marks the fourth time on the Korn Ferry Tour that Titleist has swept the counts.

      I'm listing a MINT TS2 with a brand-new Accra TZ5, 75g M5 shaft, standard length. The  original driver was $499 and I added the shaft for $310. 
      I estimate the driver head has launched ~25 tee shots. I had some pro-shop money expire end of 2018, so I picked up the TS2 head. I got fit for the Accra shaft about a month ago and it's been collecting dust on the TS2 since. Decided to stick with my trust 915d2 from college. This thing is sick. Please feel free to shoot me any questions. 
      $525 - Looking to sell full set-up.

      (4) TESTERS Wanted Cleveland RTX 4 Wedges
      If you do something once and it works well, then why not do it a second, third and now even a fourth time?  Makes sense right?  Well that must be what the club designers at Cleveland Golf think.  A company that knows a thing or two about wedges, has stuck with a successful formula in the RTX line.  Without changing the by now well known RTX name, Cleveland has certainly added what it feels are some enhancements to make the wedge even better than before.   
      What are those changes and how do they perform?  Well that's where four trusted forum members will come in, as they will be chosen to test, review and keep two wedges in the RTX 4 lineup.  You will be able to choose which two lofts you would like to test and which of the three finishes you'd like.

      It’s been a while since I posted but it’s time to update what is in my bag for my first season of professional golf.
       

       
      There are definitely some improvements that I’m looking forward to but overall I’m pretty happy with my bag so far. It helps that this setup has me -2 thru 54 holes of tournament golf (and $1,200 in winnings) since the driver, 3wood and wedges went in the bag on June 23rd.

      Driving Iron: Titleist 712u - Accra 110i X
      Irons: Titleist 714 AP2 4-PW - KBS C-Taper 130 X
      Wedges: Vokey SM7 - Dynamic Gold X100
      Putter: Evnroll ER2 - P2 Aware Grip
      Ball: Titleist ProV1 Yellow
      Glove: Under Armour Iso-Chill
      Range Finder: Precision Pro NX7 Pro
      Speed Trainer: Golf Stick Pro

      5 (25*) - 215
      6 (29*) - 205
      7 (33*) - 195
      8 (37*) - 180
      9 (41*) - 165
