Tour Treatment: Did you know you can order a custom Vokey?

Published

GolfWRX Staff 7/2012

First off… for those that didn’t know- YOU CAN CUSTOM ORDER A VOKEY WEDGE!!! Here is a link to the Vokey Wedgeworks micro site where you can customize you own. Now this isn’t an advertisement. However this is an article to make golfers aware that we can get the same treatment that only tour pros could historically receive.

In the summer of 2010, Vokey.com launched WedgeWorks, which allowed the masses to purchase Vokey Tour Van Design (TVD) wedges directly from the source in Mr. Vokey’s facility in Carlsbad, Ca. Special grinds, exclusive finishes, limited releases Tour-issue heads and unique engraving became available to all golfers. WedgeWorks is unlike the Scotty Cameron custom shop, in that it is not just a place to send a club for reconditioning or customization, although those services are available too. Through WedgeWorks, Vokey.com is able to release many prototype and special edition wedges to the public, as well as exclusive models that cannot be purchased at most stores.

Now here is the wedge I just received. This wedge is sick. TVD52 w/ Black Oxide, easyyy (my GolfWRX screen name) stamping, snow no fill. Also Vokey did a special touch for me and added “GolfWRX” on the shaft.

Better than that the finish started to wear like I wanted it to on the face and looks better used. I will add some pics next week. We did an article about the Vokey Wedgeworks were you can get this done for yourself. Click here to see the article. But we don’t hear that much about it on WRX.

I am surprised how many of my friends that are gear heads don’t know that Wedgeworks is available for them. I am thinking of getting a 56* now.

I wish we could all design our favorite wedge and post pics here in this thread but it is to hard to do for many. I think you have to do a green dump to show the final pic of your design. Then attach the screen dump here.

Anyway I think Vokey did it right. Awesome service and this is not some info commercial. This is me being a equipment ho as I know how to do.

    Hi all,
    I am pretty new to GolfWRX but I am loving what I am seeing. I am after a little advice, I was looking to purchase new wedges but I am undecided between sm4 and TVD. As I live in the UK I am unable to try the TVD wedges before I order them from BV USA. Any advice would be much appreciated. Which wedges spin the most? And does anybody know if you can order a different bounce than stated on the form? Many thanks Lewis

    Marty-Current Vokey Design wedges do not fetuare grooves that will conform with the new regulation, however, we will offer new wedges that do. Keep in mind, also, that unless you plan to qualify and/or compete in elite-level professional events (i.e., PGA Tour, U.S. Open) in 2010, your current wedges will be legal for play until 2014, and possibly until 2024 depending on the types of tournaments in which you compete.

    I’ve been using the TVD’s all summer and I love them they are every thing I could want in a wedge.

Jimmy Walker spotted testing a Titleist prototype driver?

Published

on

As spotted by GolfWRX Forum Member “anthony007,” Jimmy Walker was shown on the Golf Channel’s Morning Drive hitting an unidentified driver at the Warrior Open.

In anthony007’s forum post, along with the photo, he asks the question “Is this a new Driver from Titleist?”

Well, it’s hard to tell from the grainy photo exactly what the driver says on the sole. But then Jimmy Walker himself posted on Twitter saying: “Great catch! Its always fun to test new prototypes and the [Titleist on Tour] guys have given me some cool toys to play with that are incredible – but unfortunately I can’t talk about them yet!”

While the response is a bit cryptic, it does seem that Walker confirms he was indeed testing a Titleist prototype driver.

What do you think?

Spotted: New Aldila Rogue Silver 130 MSI shaft

Published

on

The official Tour launch of the Aldila Rogue Silver 130 MSI shaft is this week at the 2018 Forth Worth Invitational at Colonial, and we were able to snap a few photos on the range. MSI stands for millions of pounds per square inch, and basically, it refers to how stiff the fiber is — the higher the number, the greater stiffness it has.

Headed to retail later this summer, according to Aldila, the lower-launching, lower-spinning Rogue Silver 130 MSI is the successor to the Rogue Silver 125 MSI.

Per the company, the new Rogue Silver 130 MSI will feature the same tapered butt-counter-balanced design as the 125. The stronger 130 MSI carbon fiber produces slightly lower torque, however, and is the strongest material in a Rogue shaft to date.

Several Tour pros have already made the switch to the new shaft:

  • Jimmy Walker put the 70 TX in his driver for the first time at The Players. He had been gaming the 80 TX in his fairway wood since the Masters.
  • Kevin Chappell has been playing the 80 TX in both his 3 and 5-woods.
  • Martin Flores has put the 70 TX in his driver
  • Chez Reavie put the 60 TX in his driver at the Masters.

We’ll bring you more details as they become available closer to launch. Click here to see what GolfWRX members are saying about the new shaft in our forums.
