Vokey is flying under the radar
With Limited Jet Black SM8 Wedges
This limited release features SM8’s Jet Black raw finish enhanced with black paint fill in the logos and graphics, complemented by a Dynamic Gold S200 Black Onyx shaft and exclusive Golf Pride New Decade Multi-Compound Black/Grey grip with BV Wings.
Cameron Smith, who won this year’s Sony Open playing all-black SM8’s, is among a group of tour players who prefer the Jet-Black finish. (SM8 is also available in Tour Chrome, Brushed Steel and the tour-preferred Raw finish.)
Limited Jet Black SM8 wedges are available in golf shops August 28th, with all 23 loft, bounce and grind combinations (in both RH and LH) available through custom order or WedgeWorks on www.titleist.co.uk/golf-clubs/wedges/wedgeworks
Aaron Dill, Vokey Tour Representative, said:
“I’ve been stocking more and more Jet-Black heads on the Tour Van each year. Players love the look of it, and the contrast you get when you add custom stamping and paint fill – it just pops. Jet Black also helps players reduce glare on those really bright days. When you add in the black shaft and grip, it’s a sharp setup.”
Great wedge play comes from distance control, shot versatility and spin. SM8 improves performance in all three areas through the following key innovations:
- Reimagined Progressive CG is pushed forward from the face for increased MOI (up to a +7% increase in the higher lofts) – producing improved distance and trajectory control, better feel and a clubface that wants to square up at impact for more consistent results. To achieve this, Vokey’s team lengthened the hosels and counterbalanced that weight with high- density tungsten low in the toe.
- Vokey’s six Tour-Proven Sole Grinds – F, S, M, K, L and D – developed and refined through decades of work with the best shot makers in the game, allow golfers of all skill levels to be precisely fit for their swing type (steep, neutral, shallow), shot making style and course conditions (firm, neutral, soft).
- 100% Inspected Spin Milled Grooves are cut with a level of precision that is unique by finish, producing maximum spin and shot control. Micro-grooves are individually cut in between grooves, which maximise spin on partial shots. Proprietary heat treatment is applied to the impact area to double the durability of the groove without impacting feel – making it the most durable groove in golf.
VOKEY WEDGE SELECTOR
The Vokey Wedge Selector tool on Titleist.co.uk helps golfers select the proper loft, bounce and grind options for their swing and course conditions. Vokey recommends that golfers visit their local Titleist fitter to confirm the results.
