SM5 vs SM6 Bounce

Frank P

Why was the bounce changed on the SM6 M grind from 10 deg. on the SM5 to 8 deg. I have a 54-10 SM5 and am hesitant to change. I think that 10 deg. is a good all around bounce for a sand wedge and I like the M grind. How many of you want to hit a bunker shot with 8 deg. of bounce. If I'm wrong then I stand corrected..

    Great question.

    Bob Vokey says his tour grinds are living grinds. He is always getting feedback from the best players in the world which allow him to tweak and improve the grinds.

    If you played the SM5 54.10M, you will have a smooth transition into the SM6 54.08M.

    We encourage to visit your local Titleist fitter to hit the wedges side by side in order to determine the best grind for your swing and course conditions.

    Hope this helps
