Vokey Design SM8

Gold

Our Review:

When we talk about center of gravity in wedges—especially moving it forward—we have to realize there’s not much room to go. Unless of course you want the center of gravity floating in front of the clubface—which, as it turns out, is where Bob Vokey and his team pushed it for the SM8. The CG hovers in front of the wedge face due to lengthening the hosel and adding tungsten to the toe. This minimizes dynamic loft at impact for a consistently stable feel, particularly in half-wedge shots. The CG is progressively located throughout the range of lofts, getting higher in the higher lofts to better optimize flight and spin.

    Classic looks. The soft finish hides glare. Responsive in your hands and feels quick through the sand and rough. Easy to command.

  • high

    Beautiful clean design that matches the look with the playability. Soft on the hands and ears, predictable spin response with soft landing a short rollout.

4 Reasons Why You Need New Wedges

Some manufacturers produce a set of irons that includes a sand wedge with the letter S engraved on the sole. While convenient, that likely isn’t the best thing for your short game, here's why
