What we say...
Vokey wedges have been seriously top end for years now – and the new class for 2009 reinforces this and then some. The super-soft 8620 milled Carbon Steel head comes in either a Tour Chrome, Oil Can or Black Nickel head, but what gives the next generation of Vokeys that allimportant spin factor is the CNC machine-cut face and grooves. A circular saw-style cutting tool is used to create exact groove.
Ultimately, this means the sharp wedges offer awesome spin and the ability to really drag your ball back. The new Vokey’s grooves benefiT from 30 per cent more volume than a conventional wedge, which makes stopping the ball and imparting spin a possibility even for game improvers. And our testers thought the latest models ticked all of the boxes. Chris noted that he didn’t feel “there was a bad shot in the club” and that it was the easiest to use from a variety of lies in the sand. Jon marked this as the best on test, especially in the great-looking Oil Can finish, while the range was perhaps best summed up by our pro Dan. The Belfry’s man reckoned that “the Vokey is just a classic in the wedge department. You know what you’re going to get every time.” This solid, yet gorgeously soft wedge would happily find its way into everyone of our testers’ bags.

I recently bought 2 vokey wedge's, A 52 degree gap and a 56 sand, i tested every wedge my local shop had on the shelve's, Cleveland CG 14, Callaway X, Mizuno T and P and the rest. I have to say for me, personally, the taylor made Z TP we're very tidy, great feel and consistency, wonderful feel on full shot's as well, But one wedge stood way above the rest for all catagories. They looked fantastic, felt solid from head to grip but the results with both lofts were seriously impressive. The very first opportunity i had to go and use them i went straight to my clubs short game area and took my 56 to the bunker, I left that bunker a changed man. Both of my wedges are changing my golf game from 100 yds in for the good and so much so that this weekend i am taking my 3 iron out of my bag and buying a 60 degree titleist vokey.
Had a Nike wedge which I liked & then saw a Vokey at a good price, read reviews, tested it & yes, there is a difference. As a 12 handicapper , I can't claim to know exactly why but the Vokey gives me more confidence to swing the club rather than hit the ball. Also, 2 weeks ago, I pitched in from 50yds for an eagle & be honest, you would recommend a stick if you could do that with it !
Now I don't claim to be Seve or Tiger, but after spending years using cleveland wedges with my old mizuno blades I took the plunge and switched to vokeys as my clevelands were a bit battered. What a mistake. I found the wedges perfect for chipping with, but they were awful out of bunkers. After 6 months of attempting to use them out of bunkers and with my confidence destroyed I tried the cleveland, mizuno and ping wedges, all having the same lofts and bounce angles as the vokey wedges I owned, and I got the ball out perfectly everytime with those. I would not suggest these clubs to anybody, I'd suggest trying other wedges first and cannot understand TGs love of them in wedge tests.
I looked at my short game and saw a lot of pros with a good wedge so back too my local range shop where they seem to love a newbie golfer spending loads of money and after trying a couple i got this for half price.But i didn't believe when the guy told me how much practise i would need i thought would be popping the ball in from all angles how wrong was I! but now after green practise ,lesson help and owww 50 odd buckets it has nice spin, nice feel ,nice look, good weight and now hopefully i should start seeing my handicap come down thanks too titleist.
took a while getting used to but now it is great. my bunker shots go close every time with this club. not as much spin as other clubs.
After taking the time out to try various wedges, I had a feeling I'd go for this. You begin to effortlessly put spin on the ball and you can't beat it's feel and control.
