The Titleist Vokey SM5 wedge is an update to what should be considered the industry standard.
When you think of wedges, a short list of names comes to mind and Vokey is always one near the top of the list. For years, Bob Vokey and his team have taken a great design and made slight modifications to keep improving an already great wedge. The new Titleist Vokey SM5 wedge line now offers more options on top of an already classic design.
The Titleist Vokey wedge is already one of the cleanest looking wedges in the game, but the new Vokey SM5 wedge line looks even more refined. With minimal branding, modest paint, and clean finishes, the SM5 let's the club do the talking. You can still get the Vokey in a Tour Chrome finish, but the SM5 brings two new finishes to the general public: Gold Nickel and Raw Black. In addition to three different finish options and a variety of grinds and bounces, you can now custom order your Vokey SM5 wedge with custom stamping, paint fill, different grips, adjustments, etc…
When hitting shots with the Titleist Vokey SM5 wedge, you get a very traditional sounding click from the face. You still get a soft feel out of the wedge, but the sound is solid and reassuring. The feel across the entire face is soft, but it's not mushy and unresponsive. You get very solid feedback from the face of the SM5 which makes it easy to dial in how you can use the club to hit different types of shots. These new SM5 wedges have a lot of similarities in feel to my SM4 TVD wedges, which I felt were quite a bit different (and better) than the regular SM4 wedges.
