Vokey forged sm6

Recommended Posts

Hi guys, anyone had the opportunity in hitting an sm6 forged wedge.

Keen to hear any feedback as I'm looking for a gap wedge and I've always loved/played vokey.

Well I will kick it off as I've just received one, a 50.10 in silver to be exact.

Firstly, the shape is beautiful, somewhat compact but large enough to inspire confidence.

Secondly, the feel is spot on, soft in the middle with plenty of feedback for off centre hits.

Thirdly, flight is ok but will be swapping shaft for a project x Lz 5.5.

I was originally going to by a mizuno t7 wedge to match my mp18's but it just didn't feel soft like a forged club.

I'm happy I got the jap spec vokey even though it was double the price.

Not sure if it is totally worth it but want be selling it anytime soon.

Yes they are and surprisingly have a hard feel to me, possibly due to the baron added to keep the grooves lasting longer.

i have only seen the Japan models forged.

The T7 are a little clicky, but they sure like to make my ball dance.

Wouldn't a cast wedge last twice as long as a forged wedge? I would assume the forged wedge's grooves would wear out pretty quick especially if you practice alot

I had forged Mizuno wedges forever before moving to volkeys. they did need more maintenance especially with like and loft adjustments but I didn't see the spin drop off any more quickly then I have on cast wedges.

I just got fitted and got a 54.10 S grind and a 58.08 M grind with extra long Ping wedge grips to choke down for precision shots ala Rickie Fowler. Need to experiment  with choking down vs the clock position approach. Putting aside my 1 year old Ping Glide 56 deg wedge. Any buyers? Rh

 

For my fitting I compared them to the Cleveland RTX wedge. Those were my choices after I looked at and hit a bunch at Golf Galaxy. I then went to a custom fitter to get fitted with Trackman buy them. I also bought a Ping G30 4h at that time. In Late November I paid $155 per wedge, but I think they may be on sale now. I can't wait to chart them out for distance and get scoring.

      Next steps to my road to improvement
      Current
       Adding the Mizuno MMC FliHi 4 iron to the bag once it comes it to replace my hybrid. The hybrid has too significant of a draw bias, not terrible, but I also draw the ball naturally already, and will probably go in and out of the bag, but I'm looking for better shot shaping with the FliHi and have that 210 to 225 distance into the green and off of the tee. Working on my putting. I'm rolling the ball nicely now with a slightly open stance with my current putter. I have another putter that I can get the ball rolling online, but the pace is off. Future step is to actually get fit for a putter. Working on my natural tempo and swing speed for the driver to have more consistent drives. See below for more info. Next
      Driver shaft optimization. Not looking for a new head yet. I like my 2017 M1 460. Interested in the journey of testing some shafts. Right now my shaft is determining what kind of shot I can do. Slower speed and tempo than my natural speed and tempo. This has lead to a great deal of inconsistency of trying to find the "magic speed and tempo" and I know that isn't the way to go. Swing speed training. I'll have multiple shafts at this point so I can game whatever is best fitting me as I go along. And I can always swing a little slower or club down to hit a fairway. Future
      Get fitted for a putter > get fitted for a driver/shaft and woods from a high level, reputable company willing to discuss numbers and takes the time and right approach. Open to custom shafts and not just from the OEM cart like at a Golf Galaxy. I have only been fitted to a driver once, but didn't purchase as I did not like the experience, small selection of shafts, and I wasn't swinging my natural speed and tempo like I should have.

      I'm really liking the new UI on this forum. It looks really clean!
