A while back I picked up a Vokey 256 wedge from a reputable dealer on eBay. I believe this is an older model 200 series with the non-conforming grooves. I only play for fun, not competitively, so the non-conforming grooves is not an issue. While trolling some forums recently, I read some discussions about serial number stampings and realized that this particular club has no such marking. I began to wonder if it was perhaps a fake, but it seems that the lack of a serial number does not necessarily mean that is not genuine. It also appears that the stamping "Tour Use Only" is unusual for a Vokey wedge. I do know that it was refinished in this black oxide finish before I purchased it. I do like the club and how it feels when the ball is struck, and bottom line that is what matters. I'm wondering though if anyone here can help me with determining whether or not it is a real Vokey wedge or if it is not. Again, I'm happy with the club but would like to know for sure.
I was also luck enough to pick up one of the recently released 452 Indigo wedges (Directly from Wedgeworks, so I know that one is genuine). It looks truly awesome and I can;t wait to try it out.
Thanks & best wishes to all for the New Year.
