Lower bounce K Grind now available on WedgeWorks

Published

on

Maybe you missed Vokey’s limited release of the Links K on WedgeWorks on July 15. If you did, Vokey is giving you another shot with its new lower-bounce K Grind wedges.

The new wedges are available in four lofts (54, 56, 58 and 60 degrees), and their release allows golfers to buy a sand-wedge loft K Grind wedge (54-10, 56-10) from the company. The lob wedges (58-06, 60-06) use only 6 degrees of bounce, and for that reason they’re preferred by several big-name players on the PGA Tour including Jason Dufner and Adam Scott.

Here’s how they’re different.

Like the SM5 K Grind wedges, which are available in 58-11 and 60-11, the WedgeWorks exclusive model has a sole grind that is wider and more cambered than any other Vokey grind. That makes the wedges extremely easy to use from the bunker. Unlike the stock model, however, the new lob wedges only have 6 degrees of bounce. That improves their versatility in hard, tight fairway conditions.

[quote_box_center]”They have been a wonderful addition to the line and a miracle club for players with bunker issues,” said Vokey Tour Rep Aaron Dill. “The U.S. Open was the perfect place to have players test them because the bunkers were soft and grounds were hard as a rock. Bob [Vokey] and I knew how important bounce was, but I think the K for me was a real eye opener because it made me realize that bounce in the right spots was key as well.”[/quote_box_center]

The new wedges have Vokey’s Spin Milled TX3 grooves, and sell for $180 on WedgeWorks. A choice of 8-character stampings, a BV Wings grip, a WedgeWorks shaft band, snow stampings, toe engravings, shaft laster etching and custom grip, shaft and ferrule options are available for an upcharge.

    Not necessarily, they are wide with camber. Unlike the links K, which has no camber. I’d buy some if they were offered in a raw finish.

    That 60.06* looks sweet!

    I’ve been dying to try a K grind out. Fairways are super soft up here in Michigan.

      Ummmmmm, they have LOW bounce, which makes them good for firm conditions, NOT soft.

Three Swing Challenge: Testing the Callaway Paradym Ai Smoke Triple Diamond driver

Published

on

GolfWRX’s resident Club Junkie, Brian Knudson, puts the Callaway Paradym Ai Smoke Triple Diamond driver to the test in our new Three Swing Challenge.

Why three swings?

Many years ago, the legendary Barney Adams, founder of Adams Golf, told us this:

“My formula as a fitter was three shots only. I discounted No. 1 just because it was the first one, counted 100 percent of No. 2, and discounted No. 3, because the player was starting to adjust.”

This is in line with our experience, and we believe golfers can make a meaningful judgment about a club in just a few swings.

Let us know what you want to see in the challenge next!

What’s your 3-wood? – GolfWRXers discuss

Published

on

In our forums, our members have been talking about their 3-woods. WRXer ‘Kdgolf’ is on the hunt for a new 3-wood, and our members have been sharing their suggestions as well as making arguments for their current gamer.

Here are a few posts from the thread, but make sure to check out the entire discussion and have your say at the link below.

  • phizzy30: “Still have my OG SIM ti.  It’s very hot off the face, mid launch, low spin.  Great off the tee, but you need some speed off the deck to make it come to life.  Qi10 tour is also another good one I tested and numbers were very similar to the SIM ti but it launched slightly higher.”
  • knudson81: “Cobra Darkspeed LS 3+ and add a Mitsubishi Tensei 1K Pro White 70. Absolute monster.”
  • adamwon84: “I have the AI Smoke Max 3 wood (15 degrees) and it might be the easiest club to hit from a tee or off the deck that I have ever had (when it comes to a 3 wood that is) and the distance is pretty fantastic.”
  • runningblind11: “Taylormade fairways always work best for me, I need a deeper face.  All in the last 5 years are good, but I really like the look of the Qi10 this year.   I have a 3HL and a 7 in the bag now.”
