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.

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.”
