At the end of last season I complained to my playing partners about the loss of distance on full shots and poor control on pitches/chips with my wedges. This spring I used SM6s from demo set. It was like night and day. My new wedges arrived last week! If you experience the same check your grooves or play the demos at your course. I was skeptical about changing them out but it's true

    Is the loss of distance from groove wear? I have been playing a SM4 for about 2 years now and I am seeing a bit of distance loss but am unsure why.

    Looking for some input on differences between the SM5 and SM6 60 degree wedge.

    2 years of play on your wedges, definitely time for replacements! Wedges drop off at about 75 rounds. You will see a definite reduction in spin after that. If you play and practice on a regular basis, you might want to replace your wedges every year.

    I know I replace mine 2 or 3 times a year.

    Yes, loss of distance can be a result of Groove Wear. When grooves are worn, the golf ball slides up the face a bit, increasing launch and reducing ball speed.
