Guess who got a call from his shop that his vokeys are in a week before launch and he can pick them up tomorrow!

They look absolutely stunning in person

Spin numbers are really all in the same ballpark and so strike dependent.  I really think that all top wedges are good, and what it really comes down to is finding wedges that have the shape, sole, bo

Maybe I should try a raw one. Supposed to be the best wedges in the game right? My favorite clubs anyways. Might as well have “the best”.

I've heard the same. I was looking at them plus getting the wedgeworks customization and I was over $300 for one wedge. Still debating to get one though minus all of the customization work

I wouldn't do anything to it, besides the shaft. No extra stuff. Just plain and simple.

Man those raw SM7s look tasty...now to find a way to order them without the wife knowing the true price tag. Only one grind available in each loft for lefty...meh...I can handle that. 

 

Anyone have a bank account in the caymans that can assist in money laundering? Thanks in advance.

Hit about 50 shots with my 54 black today. Range balls and range mats. A couple brushes and wipes with the towel and she still looks great

Well a short review after using these for a month

Titleist Vokey SM7

 

 

Initially, when I got them I was impressed upon unwrapping, The finish looked beautiful in the Brushed steel.

The new D grind in the 58 worked well through the very wet turf here in the UK

The 50 and 54 are the S grind for a bit of all-around performance.

I`m going to be totally honest here and throw it out there, the feel even using premium balls is harsh compared to the Mizuno S18.

The Mizuno S18  feel softer yet more solid.In fact, I hate to say it but the Vokeys feel cheap in comparison."ouch"

The brushed steel finish lasted a couple of rounds and now the clubs look aged but it suits the wedges.

I really wanted these to be the ones because I wanted a complete Titleist bag but it`s not going to happen they have really robbed me of my short game prowess and confidence to pull off a lot of stock shots I have produced time and time again with the Mizuno S18. 

I play 6 days a week and the Vokeys have had a thorough testing.

I am glad I have kept hold of the Mizuno S18 wedges they are going straight back in my bag.

In my opinion, Vokeys are overrated and being a massive Titleist fan that just killed me saying that.

... I have resisted going to a high bounce wedge for a long time now. I started out playing a wide soled 588 but moved on to a lower bounce wedge as my game improved. When played properly my Vokey M Grind has worked very well. Once in a long while I have hit it a tiny bit fat and the leading edge dug creating what is basically a duffed shot. Only happened maybe once every 10 rounds but it was always at a bad time like coming up short with a tight lie and needing a great chip to get up and down for par. Facing the same shot from a few yards closer bringing double bogie into play is a real killer. 

 

... So I finally picked up the SM7 D Grind and I could not be happier with the results. It is almost impossible to hit fat as the bounce stops the leading edge from acting the ground. I bought the dark finish and soaked it in white vinegar and it looks great. It works just as well as my old M grind when I open the face, even with a very tight lie. I have found it to be the best of both worlds and I highly recommend at least demoing a wedge with 12 or more degrees of bounce.

Exactly my experience with the D grind.  I was worried about switching from the M grind, but after a few rounds there is zero worry.  I haven't lost any playability from moving to the D and I have gained a weapon out of the sand.  I had a tendency to dig too much in the sand with the M grind and the D grind makes sand play a much easier endeavor for me.

I totally agree on the D grind it`s magical I just wish the wedges are forged in feel.

What does the white vinegar do?

I might have the chance to score a set of SM7.

How is the jet black finish holding?

Removes there finish after some scrubbing and makes the wedge raw.

 

I love how the jet blacks aren't wearing. They are designed to wear over time and they area doing so nicely

Thanks for the pics!

That's holding much better than the black Mizunos I have.

You've made up my mind :D
