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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
