However... The finish can be taken off pretty easily for a raw wedge, so I might actually go that route to get my raw TVD's.
Have you done this?


I haven't.. yet. I plan to grab a set of them once I figure out what loft combo I will go with. Use them, wear them up a bit, and then remove the black ox.

I think you can use most chemical strippers to do it. Oven cleaner seem to be the most popular, I've even heard of people using Coke to get black ox off. Naval jelly is made to remove oxide from metal, so thats a pretty easy bet as well.

I'd order ASAP if the 50 was available right away.  :/

Can't you order the 52 and have the loft strengthened two degrees?  Does strengthening or weakening loft have a negative impact on the quality of the club?

Also does anyone know why the black oxide can be strengthened and weakened by two degrees each way while the brushed chrome can only be customized one degree?  The black oxide also allows lie adjustments four degrees flat/upright but only two degrees with the brushed chrome.  Thanks.

I'll take a stab here.

You could order the 52* and have it bent, but then you change the bounce on the club, as well as the offset. Not a ton, but enough that honestly, you've now just wasted the fact that you went for the M grind as it's now changed from original more than say.. a degree.

As for the Black Ox being able to be bent more, might have to do with the finish than anything. The Black Oxide is on a raw wedge, it's not been plated. They might be easier to bend without the finish getting messed up from moving it around to an "extreme". The satin is chrome plated. Moving it a bunch might do something to the plated finish, to the extent that they don't want to deform/destroy it.

Could be wrong, but thats a possibility I've come across before.

They look SO sweet! I had been tweeting with Vokey Wedges regarding the SM4 58* versus the TVD SM4 58*, and they recommended the TVD based on my propensity to dig when hitting a short, high shot with my loband desire to hit a variety of shots. I can't wait to order one!

I play all my clubs a 1/2 inch over and my wedges always feel heavy.  They usually play anywhere from D8 to D9.  Is there an option with these wedges to get lighter heads so I could get swing weight around D5 or D6?

YES!  They can "Port" the head that will get you about 2 swingweights less, ie +1/2" is about D6-7, and after porting that will be D4-5.  Extra $25.

Yeah, I'm going to wait, I think I'm going to swap to a 50/54/58 over the 52/56/60.

Crazy how they limited the lofts initially I think.

They have never offered the TVD in a 50* in the US.  I have had many sets and have never had a 50*.  Like I said funny that they picture it.  They do offer that head in the Japan market.

For the question asked... I have 56 and 60 TVDs for a year and the finish is barely worn off. No rust either. Only sign of wear is the face where the ball marks are. FWIW. Also, I hit the Vokey SM4s and they seem not a lot different from the TVDs.  They are NICE wedges and perform well. I have two sets of clubs, both Ping, Eye2XG in one set and TVDs in the other. Eye2s are longer, but the TVDs have much more spin and the feel is much better. Also, I compared the Vokeys to the Tour-S Rustiques. Rustiques are harder, in feel, and longer than the TVDs, but the TVDs again, have more feel and spin. All checked with KBS Tour shafts. I'm a Ping guy, but the Vokeys are the real deal, TVD or SM4, wedge wise.

Yeah, which is exciting because they will be offering a 50* TVD head in the spring from wedge works. Will be great to get a 50* to mix in with the common place 47* PW.

I was fitted by Kevin Sprecher in Sleepy Hollow, NY, and I bought them from him too.  He gave me a little bit of a break since I was fitted as well.

Awesome getting fitted.  He had a bunch of TVD's to try out on their short game area.  Then we looked at numbers on his Trackman.

I am planing on writing a review of the fitting, since it was so good!

I am going to be ordering AP2's and 54/60 TVD's this weekend.  Will pick up the 50 when released if I need it.  I currently play a 52/58 combo but want more versatility so I am going both with more loft.

They should've released the 50* with the other lofts. Hate waiting, want to order when it is released as well. But my 58* should be here in the next week or so, hopefully.

whats the difference between the sm4 wedges and the TVDs?


"TVD 52 is a Spin Milled wedge featuring a Tour-proven sole profile based on Bob's years of work with the best players in the world. The TVD 52 forward bounce surface features moderate width with enhanced camber, allowing the club face to easily pivot around the center for versatility in both open and closed playing positions. The moderate effective bounce makes the TVD 52 an excellent all condition wedge. This wedge features the new SM4 conforming grooves."

So the TVD is a SM4 groove wedge but with different sole bounce design.




Inspiration

The TVD grind is a variation of Voke's original Tour Grind, the M. TVD stands for "Tour Van Design" because it was a request made by many Tour players. The TVD has an M on the toe as a homage to the M grind.

Features

At first glace, the TVD Grind appears to be very similar to the M Grind. The difference being the TVD features a slightly narrower forward bounce surface with slightly more camber. This makes the TVD more suitable for neutral to slider/sweeper type players.

Benefit

The relieved sole provides stability by equalizing heel and toe pressure through impact. The relief also improves and encourages shot making by keeping the leading edge close to the ground as the head rotates from square to open. The toe relief allows chip shots to be played with the toe down and heel raised.

Suitable For

The TVD grind provides great turf interaction from a variety of conditions and is also very effective from the sand. The TVD grindís versatile design suits neutral to slider/sweeper players.

Same old same old, if you had one Vokey you've had them all, obviously with different stampings.
