Improved Distance & Trajectory Control
Introduced in SM6, refined in SM7, and reimagined in SM8. The center of gravity (CG) has been pushed forward, which produces higher MOI. Using tungsten weights and varied hosel lengths, the Vokey R&D team has moved the CG outside of the wedge head and placed it in front of the face, resulting in increased MOI and exceptional feel. For the golfer, this means optimized ball flight and a club face that simply wants to square up at impact.
SM8 Grinds: The Heart and "Sole" of Versatility
Your swing is unique and requires a unique wedge. Master Craftsman Bob Vokey has spent years crafting, developing, and improving his Tour-proven sole grinds. SM8 features 5 unique sole grids to fit players of all levels.
Progressive Centre of Gravity
SM8 features a reimagined progressive center of gravity, which produces the most accurate and forgiving Vokey wedge yet. The center of gravity (CG) can vary slightly between different lofted wedges, based on the bounce and sole grind of the wedge. This helps to optimize launch windows specific to each loft.
Spin Milled Grooves
SM8 wedge grooves are meticulously engineered through a proprietary Spin Milled process to maximize spin and durability. Each groove is individually cut based on loft and finish; low lofts (46°-54°) are designed with narrower, deeper grooves, while higher lofts (56°-62°) have wider, shallower grooves. Micro-grooves in between grooves maximize spin on partial shots. A proprietary heat treatment is applied to the impact area which doubles the durability of the groove without impacting feel making it the most durable groove in golf.
