Equipment news: Titleist release new Vokey SM5 wedgesJanuary 23, 2014 Golf Equipment
New TX3 Grooves deliver maximum spin with trajectory and distance control
5 Titleist have introduced the latest additions to their famous line of Vokey wedges – the Spin Milled 5.
Precisely designed and manufactured using proprietary spin milled technology, Vokey SM5 wedges provide a distinct performance advantage through new, deeper TX3 grooves, tour-driven shapes and the industry’s most extensive range of bounce and grind options.
For the first time, Vokeys will bear the name of their grind (the shape of the sole) and there are also two classy new finishes – Gold Nickel and Raw Black – to go alongside the timeless Tour Chrome.
New TX3 grooves, with seven percent larger groove volume and two performance configurations, deliver maximum spin by channelling away grass and sand for improved contact between the ball and groove edge.
Vokey SM5 wedges are available in 21 different loft/bounce/grind combinations and six tour-inspired sole grinds, appropriately slotted into low, mid and high bounce categories For years, chief designer Bob Vokey and his team of craftsmen have utilised tour player input and feedback to produce the largest and most effective range of bounce and sole grind options in the game.
Vokey SM5 wedges are available in 21 different loft/bounce/grind combinations and six tour-inspired sole grinds, appropriately slotted into low, mid and high bounce categories to fit all swing types, shot-making styles and short game conditions.
“I worked closely with our team of craftsmen and engineers to apply everything I’ve learned from the best players in the world to Spin Milled 5. We’ve increased the spin. We’ve given players more control. And we’ve got a bounce and grind matrix that will provide the versatility and confidence to hit a variety of shots around the green and get up and down more,” said Vokey.
The new wedges will be available to buy in March and have an SRP of £103.
