    Going for new SM6 wedges (54 and 58) I am more of a sweeper and not a digger with my swing. Our course is usually firm. What Vokey grind is the best for me?

    There's noting more exciting than a new set of wedges!

    Other than hoping this site would help with its info and video content: www.titleist.com/.../sm6

    Put it on a test drive sort of speak at a Titleist Thursday event or at any of your local certified Titleist dealers/stores.

    I wouldn't want any short cuts when it comes to my wedges.

    Good luck.

    As the above comment stated its best to try them out, but for a sweeper the S, M and L grinds would likely be preferred over the F and K grinds

    Take a look at the M grind.

    Something else to think about is whether you will use it for full shots or mostly around the green. I bought a vokey 54 m grind and its great for chips and pitches but because it has been ground down around the toe and heel it's not super forgiving on full shots. I think next time I'll get the F grind so I'll have more margin of error on full shots, that being said the M grind is awesome around the green so it's probably a personal preference

    Hi Michael, ... there are a few grind options available or recommended for players with a "sweeper" type of swing and for more firm turf conditions. My best suggestion would be to go to a Titleist fitter and get a full wedge fitting. It really will be the best way for you to test the various wedges out ... in the different grinds with the different loft & bounce options that work for you.

    In my case, when I went for my fitting, we also sampled the wedges off of the turf and the bunkers so that we could get some feedback on the feel and playability of the wedges under different conditions. My fitter also had it backed up with a Trackman so that I could also assemble wedges that would have a good overlap in lofts/distances on full shots so that I would have multiple options available to me.

    It was well worth it for me and I would suggest that it would be for you as well -- for the very least it would give you some great thoughts about the best combination of loft, bounce and grinds!
