Vokey Introduces New Slate Blue SM8 Wedges


Recommended Posts

CARLSBAD, Calif. (February 23, 2021)  The overwhelming most played and best performing wedges in the game – Vokey Design SM8 –are now available in an ultra-premium Slate Blue finish.

 

Master Wedge Craftsman Bob Vokey has always stressed the importance of players having confidence in their wedge at address – and finish plays a key role.

 

“A player has to love their wedge when they look down at it,” said Vokey, whose short game tools account for nearly half of all wedges played on the PGA Tour.

The finish on the Vokey SM8 Slate Blue wedges is applied like a PVD finish, but with a unique material and more time intensive process that combine to provide a deep, rich slate blue color that is extremely durable.

 

“Very often, wedge finishes can be beautiful, but they won’t last,” said Vokey. “At the same time, the most durable finishes often aren’t stunning. Slate Blue combines the two. Not only will golfers love their wedge when they see it in the shop, the finish will last through the course of normal play.”

 

Consistent with all Vokey Design SM8 finishes, Slate Blue is available in all 23 loft, bounce, and grind options (both RH/LH), while supplies last. Slate Blue also incorporates the technology that sets SM8 wedges apart:

  • Groundbreaking Progressive Center of Gravity (CG) pushed forward of the face for increased MOI, improved consistency and softer, more solid feel.
  • 100% Inspected Spin Milled grooves that are cut with a level of precision that is unique by finish, producing maximum spin.

 

Vokey Design SM8 models are also available in Tour Chrome, Brushed Steel, Raw and Jet Black finishes.

For assistance determining the right loft, bounce and grind, golfers can use the Wedge Selector tool on Vokey.com:

AVAILABILITY AND PRICING: Vokey Design SM8 Slate Blue wedges will be available in golf shops beginning Friday, March 19th (MAP $199).

They will also be available for customization and purchase on Vokey.com.

 

STOCK SHAFT AND GRIP: The Slate Blue stock setup features a True Temper Dynamic Gold S200 shaft and custom Blue/White BV Wings New Decade Multi Compound grip. Most custom shafts and grips are included at no up charge. Additional customizations such as character stamping are available for an additional fee.

Was just reading the email from Titleist on these. I really like the color.  Even tempted to pick one or two up to have as spares

Yeah I loved them in the SM7. They have just the right touch of shine in the sun. Really awesome looking. 
 

Hey, @Lacassem... how’s the finish holding up on those SM7s?

I have the 54S and 58M in Slate Blue on the SM7s. Finish holds up really well - not quite DBM level of indestructible, but the best I have played outside of DBM. I picked up two of each when PGASS dropped the price to $119 about a year ago so I will be playing these bad boys for the next few years.

The Modus 125 was a better premium shaft to make the stock offering than this version's S200 in my opinion, but still a great club (if not a great value)

A Titleist for the top and bottom end of the bag sounds about right to me!
