Maybe its me maybe it isnt but I find Vokey wedges too heavy.
I just compared the specs from the SM4 to my current setup TM XFT and
found that the stock Vokey SM4 is playing to a D-5 swing weight and my
current TM XFT is playing to a D4 swing weight.
Could the difference of a D-5 to a D-4 be that noticeable to someone? I
am looking to order Vokeys through Wedgeworks but I just want to make
sure that I find a better Vokey for my game than what is found off the
Thanks for the help
If you feel the SM4 are a little too heavy, consider sending them through WedgeWork Services. There is an option to weight port your wedge, which will take 1-2 swing weight points off each wedge. Click on the link below to learn more about this.
I tried a TM gap wedge 4 years ago (what the heck?? the PX had them for $67). Didn't like it and put it on Craig's List (word to the wise... military exchanges don't allow returns on golf clubs unless they are unused).
Vokeys do it all, period.
I agree with what everyone has said, just figure out what you want to do. Going thru Wedge Works is a great idea. To further expound upon the swing weight topic, I have seen it first hand that the increase/decrease of swing weight by 1 is the weight of a $1 bill. Try it out at your local shop that has that equipment. I have noticed that Vokey's tend to be a little heavier as well, but only in the head. During the swing, I can't even notice the difference in my D-4 and D-5 swing weight wedges. Hope this helps.
Just an update on this thread... I am an all vokey guy now!!!!
SM4 52 & 60 and a K Grind TVD as my 56 :)
Nice! How is the K working as your 56?
I switched shafts because I wanted a lighter Vokey and when my 58 K grind came, it felt too heavy (I shafted it with the NS pro 970 A flex). It swingweighted out at D3-D4 and my wedges are usually closer to D1-D2. Normally the 970 comes out lighter, but this felt very heavy. My fitter convinced me to try it anyway, and I was very surprised at how well I hit it. It is definitely my favorite wedge!
Also, most golfers can barely detect a swingweight difference of 3 points.
I love it!!! I am thinking of getting a 60 degree K grind... or wait for the SM5
