I think you're going to like those a lot Joe. My current SM6 are the first Vokeys I've had, and my wedge game has never been more accurate.

Thanks man. I'm really excited to put them in play. I like the weighting better than the Glides I've been gaming for the past year and I'm really interested to see what the turf interaction is like from different lies.

 

What grinds are you using?

Funny about the Glide, I may have said this already, forgive me if I'm repeating.  But I had bought the 58 last June on a whim, and it was fantastic, I was all set to buy the 54 this spring to match it when I tried the SM6's.  I immediately placed an order for all three SM6's...LOL

 

I have the F Grind in the 50 and the M Grind in the 54.  Both are supposedly in between wedges for firm to soft turf, which we get a lot of here in the DC/MD/VA area.   very soft in the spring and fall, and can get firm during the summer with the lack of rain.   So far the turf interaction has been great,  they do exactly what they say they will.   

 

I have the K grind in the 58 as it was recommended by a friend who had been using it for his bunker shots, and said it was just so automatic out of the bunker.  I have found that to be the case also.

Well after today's first round with the SM6s I am in love.  I knew I would love the 60* M grind and it did not disappoint.  Only had to use it twice and both times it left me with tap-ins for par.

 

What really surprised me was the 54 F grind with 14 degrees of bounce.  I thought it might be too much bounce, especially from full shots from tight fairway lies, but man it was incredible.  I hit a number of shots from 50 to 100 yards with it today and they were just so crisp I was shocked.  Spin was perfect and my distance control was on point.

They look a little more round than the sm5 or is it all in my head?

Leading edge or the toe/face?

 

If you are talking about the toe/face, then you'd be correct.  Titleist moved some of the weight out of the hosel and moved it out towards the toe (by slightly rounding/extending the toe).  They also slightly vary in size as you move from low loft (smaller) to high loft (slightly larger)

Here is a great writeup on the SM6s and how they've changed since the SM5s

What is PUD?

  

Personal Use Discount. Has to be authorized by the local rep, if you work in the industry. It's meant as it says for personal use, not to be resold in the pro shop or store.

Good stuff. I'll admit I am and am not surprised by that 54 with that much bounce. Yeah it see,s like a lot. But I think the magic in these grinds, is they do what you want them to do on a shot to shot basis.

 

I've used my 58.12 out of the bunker and also on a short sided pin on a near hard pan lie. Just clipped it right off the ground and ran it up to the pin.

 

They are just so fun to hit.

The toe is what I meant and thanks for expanding on it! I was on the fence about them for that reason.

Well, I still love my SCOR wedges......Last Saturday, I Holed out an Eagle from 78 yeards with my 53* SCOR!  I had just finished the front nine and hit a terrific drive on #10, cutting the corner of a dogleg left par 4.  I had not hit the 53* all day, but, knowing my distances, i pulled it out and took two practice swings.  Then, I made the shot and watched the ball hit the green in front of the pin and bounce right into the cup.  Woo Hoo!  I love my SCOR wedges.  Have you tried them?  The new Hogan's are just like them.  They have a V-sole rather than various bounces.

No I haven't tried the scor wedges. Heard good things. Perhaps we can discuss the scor wedges in a thread for scor wedges?

I play the SM5's. Is there a huge difference between the 5's and 6's?

New grooves. Center of gravity changes in both the gap wedges and lob wedges. Weight moved from hosel towards the toe (but still slightly towards the hosel side of center. The only wedges with a COG closer to the true center is the new Cleveland wedges coming out (a few millimeters)).

So after playing from nasty bunkers with rocks in them (next time I'm just moving my ball) I notice some gashes on the back of the club from hitting rocks when hitting open faced shots,especially on the 60. Figured the best way to hide the marks was stamping.

 

Unfortunately normal stamping wouldn't have covered the blemishes so I some stamping it make it almost look freehand. The pics don't show it as well but it looks pretty cool in personuploadfromtaptalk1471205411066.jpg

Played today and these wedges continue to impress me.

 

I hit some great shots out of the greenside rough with both my 54F and 60M (3 hit flag sticks, all tap ins), and hit some really great 60-90 yard shots with the 54F.

Only had one bunker shot and it was a rather long bunker shot where I underestimated just how heavy and deep the sand was (had about a half inch of rain overnight).  I was indecisive as to what club to use from that distance and ended up leaving the shot a good bit short.

The wedges have really performed from the Rough and the fairway, but I need to spend some time with both clubs in the sand to help set up a strategy going forward as to when I use which club.

I game SM5's, friend has SM6's, I hit a couple full shots with the 56 (110-115 yards)  To be honest, kinda felt the same...  Might be the CP2 grips we both have installed on the clubs.

Just pulled the trigger on a 50 F off ebay.  Damn you Rob!

LOL...Well since the trigger is already pulled, i won't feel bad about saying how awesome that club was last night.   I stuck one from 75 yards to 2 feet, chipped out of some Narly green side rough to about 6 inches, and caught one so clean from about 20 yards off the green to a back pin (total of about 40 yards) that it literally hit once and spun to a stop about 20 feet short of the pin, I was counting on some release, but the thing bit like a hungry dog. 

 

Cuss me now, thank me later  :D

      So my two favorite golf destinations are Whistling Straits and Pinehurst.   I've been lucky enough to visit both multiple times.   I was doubly lucky that one of the trips to Pinehurst in 2016 was as part of the Team Titleist event, which I chronicled here, right after I joined the site.
      Well I'll complete the TeamTitleist DoubePlay....if you will,  this week.  On Wednesday I'll be headed to Kohler to spend three days and nights with some great TeamTitleist members that I have met over the years at the events, and several members of Titleist staff.   They are litteraly among the best people in the industry that I've met and put on a great event for the attendees. 

       
      Highlights this year will include:
      Playing Blackwolf Run--Home of a couple of Women's US Opens Playing WS Straits course, site of the 202 Ryder Cup and has hosted the PGA Championship three times!  An afternoon demo/fitting session of the entire Titleist line, including the new T Series irons and TS FW's and Hybrids Titleist Ball Fitting and Demo A hands on instructional clinic from Cameron McCormick Based on previous events..A huge bag full of Titleist and Team Titleist swag And best of all three days of meals and great memories with other passionate golfers!  And probably unfortunately spending more money than I need to in the pro shop on 2020 Ryder Cup merchandise 🙄 I'll be filling this thread as much as I can with pictures throughout the three days starting tomorrow.

      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.

        “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

      • Tour proven 3-point single shoulder strap

      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.
