Vokey adds High Bounce M Grind to WedgeWorks offerings

Published

on

Available today through WedgeWorks on Vokey.com: the High Bounce M Grind. Titleist tells us the call for a high bounce (10 degree) M-grind wedge came right from the pros, and eight staffers are currently gaming the wedge on the PGA Tour.

The 60.10 M offers players more bounce than the SM6 60.08 M, and the difference is most noticeable on full shots, Titleist says. “Diggers,” or players with a steeper angle of attack on full shots, who are looking for versatility around the green will be pleased with the new offering.

As can be gleaned at a glance, the 50.10 M features Vokey’s Progressive Center of Gravity and TX4 groove technology, as well as a brushed chrome finish.

Here’s what wedge-making royalty Bob Vokey had to say about the High Bounce M:

“The High Bounce M is an incredible tool for Aaron (Vokey Tour Rep Aaron Dill) to have on the van to help those players who have a steep angle of attack and need a high bounce wedge, but at the same time want that versatility of the M grind around the greens. We started to hear the same type of request from a bunch of guys. They’d say, ‘I love the M Grind, but I’m catching my full and three-quarter shots heavy. The wedge is digging in the fairway.’ We took that feedback and made this wedge for them.”

And since we’re talking about WedgeWorks here: These wedges can be customized, including personalized stamping in up to eight characters and one of 12 paintfill colors. Golfers can also choose from a selection of shafts, grips, shaft bands and ferrules.

Available through WedgeWorks on Vokey.com or by custom order, the High Bounce M retails for $195 — a price which includes custom BV Wings grip, custom shaft band, and up to 8 character stamping.

    I know I am dense, but how is anyone to make any sense about what you need with all of the different lofts and bounce options? I know, get fit, but I am not sure a fitter can make much sense of it either.

    Offer the J Grind if possible WedgeWorks….you can make one with a K grind with trailing edge smoothed out 1/8 inch around the heel relief area.

    Si Woo Kim has an awesome one in the bag freaking phenomenal versatile tool to use for a 60

      Do you play the ball behind your back foot? What in the world?….

        A golf professional did once describe my swing as steep and angry, but this is not an outrageous number for an Edel wedge.

    So they took a 2* stronger wedge and bent it 2* weak? Couldn’t a player already order that?

    Can someone please offer some sort of explanation on why grinds are slow-released through Titleist…and why in the world some grinds are more expensive than others? It makes no sense to me. These can’t be new grinds they are developing, and it sure as heck can’t cost $45 more to make an M grind rather than an S grind. I’ve played a bunch of Titleist equipment for years, and for the most part, like the company, but this has always felt like an underhanded way of getting extra money out of their customers for really no reason.

      That’s the industry now. Thin margins. Gotta get all they can, when they can.

    So….it’s basically the SM4 or SM5 which previously had more bounce and now it’s going to cost $195? Am I missing something?

    Team Titleist makes some great stuff but it’s getting a little ridiculous lately. Putters that run $410 because of a new name and 1 inch shorter and $195 wedge because “stampings”.

    They don’t make a wedge that I can’t dig with… my divots are a greenskeeper’s nightmare.

In-hand photos of TaylorMade’s new P-760 irons, plus comparison pics

Published

on

TaylorMade unveiled its new P-760 irons during testing sessions on Wednesday night with Rory McIlroy, Jon Rahm and Jason Day via Instagram Live. According to Tomo Bystedt, it’s a progressive set that features a one-piece cavity from PW-8 iron, then a Speed Foam-filled design from the 7-3 irons. Size-wise, the irons essentially exist between the P-750 and P-770 irons released in 2017.

On the Instagram Live feed, Jason Day, who plays the P-750s currently, expressed concern about the leading edge design, and he pointed out the toplines were a bit thicker than his P-750s, and there was more offset, too.

Now — via GolfWRX Member taylorx300 — we have in-hand photos of the irons. In this thread, he unveiled comparison photos between the P-770 and the new P-760. In this thread, he shows in-hand photos of the PW, 8 and 3 irons from the new P-760 set.

Here are the photos from taylorx300 below.
