What is the next step in wedge innovation?

By: January 26, 2016

Titleist has just announced that by launching the new Titleist Vokey Design Spin Milled 6 wedges, they would like to establish a new performance standard. Therefore, during the development of the new Titleist Vokey Design Spin Milled 6 wedges they focused on 3 key areas of wedge play:

  1. distance gapping,
  2. shot versatility and
  3. spin control.

What are the novelties of the new wedges?

  1. New Progressive Center of Gravity (CG) design aligns the CG with the impact position of each loft to produce precise distance and trajectory control with exceptional feel.
  2. Low Loft (46º-52º) SM6 models feature a low CG that increases ball speed on average by 1.5 mph (3-5 yards).
  3. Mid lofts (54º & 56º) feature a mid CG position, precisely aligned between the low lofts and high lofts, that provides precise distance gapping and exceptional feel.
  4. High lofts (58º-62º) feature a high CG position that produces tighter distance dispersion, improved trajectory control and better feel. It is visible technology, highlighted by a raised upper section.
  5. 100% inspected proprietary Spin Milled TX4 grooves and face texture. They’ve got sharper, more consistent groove edge. TX4 grooves feature 2 groove geometries: a narrower, deeper groove for the 46º-54º lofts; and a wider, shallower groove in the 56º-62º lofts.
