  • The new offering provides an alternative to the F Grind.
  • The price is $199, including customization.

A vokey WedgeWorks M Grind collection wedge

There were signs last year that Vokey WedgeWorks was evolving from a place exclusively for limited-run specialty wedges to a means to expand the SM8 lineup without forcing inventory into retail shops. That was the case with last year’s low-bounce K and that’s the case today with the new addition of the Vokey WedgeWorks M Grind collection.

The M Grind itself isn’t new. It’s a staple of the Vokey retail lineup. That said, the retail version is currently limited to lob wedge lofts (56 to 62 degrees). With the WedgeWorks M Grind collection, Vokey is expanding its M Grind offerings to include 50-, 52- and 54-degree gap (and I suppose sand) wedge options.

The Vokey WedgeWorks M Grind gap wedges include all of the technology of the standard retail offerings in lower lofts. That’s most of the story.

About the Vokey WedgeWorks M Grind

The M Grind remains a medium-bounce wedge that offers heel, toe and trailing edge relief. It’s your textbook versatile grind for shallow attack angles and firm or sandy conditions.

What is notable is that by expanding the M Grind Collection into 50- and 52-degree lofts, Vokey has (finally) provided golfers with an alternative to the F grind in the gap wedge space.

It’s good to have options, especially if you know what to do with them.

M vs. F

If you use your gap wedge almost exclusively for full swings, the F will likely remain your better option. That’s especially true if you have a steeper swing. If, however, you use your gap wedge out of bunkers, like to open it up a touch around the green or are more of a sweeper, the more versatile M may be better suited to your game.

The Vokey WedgeWorks M Grind Collection is available for custom order through Vokey.com or your local Vokey dealer. You can order it in any finish you want, as long as it’s Raw. Yeah … Raw is the only option. Hope you like rust.

It’s available in right-hand only which should play well with my neighbors in the true north.

      Have played Titleist for more than 20 years exclusively, other than their putters. Recently, I was fit for Mizuno irons. I won’t be paying $200 for a rusty wedge, so they’ve effectively lost the wedge business I gave them too. Vokeys are cast clubs and wear out too fast anyway. I’ll take the zero.

      couldn’t agree more, I would spend the extra dough on a forged wedge, I tried playing with vokey wedges and it lasted all but half a dozen rounds

      So, pretty much the same sole grind as the 1996 Titleist High Performance Triple Grind Sole wedges….

      I have really liked the Vokey wedges over the years. I don’t play any today because they are super hard to find in raw finish. After all the wet vs dry data you shared on wedge spin I won’t play anything but raw finish or a finish that has enabled spin to be good on a wet dewy morning.

      “It’s good to have options, especially if you know what to do with them.”

      I totally agree. with that statement, however . . .

      The bulk of the golf market and golfers however do not understand the matrix of possibilities with loft, bounce, and grind …. too many options, without clarity, instigates consumer buyers (of anything) to freeze in their tracks..

      I’d humbly suggest any article like this have a prominent link to a wedge buyers guide and a simplified way for every day golfers, the lifeblood of the industry, to make a purchase decision

      I love these articles, am an avid 10 handicap amateur, not in the business, but am a marketer. I’ve spent time learning but often lose track of the nuanced meaning of bounce and grind and how it would actually impact my game. Oh and… like the huge majority, I am never likely to own multiple types of wedges in the same loft setup I prefer (for me : no lob, a 56 sand wedge and a 52 gap, and I am comfy improvising on course by opening up etc as needed. my friends call me Jonny Wedge…. seriously. i practice wedges and am decent…

      Definitely. This comment needs to be echoed from the rooftops.

      Everyone thinks magically that either people are a) too basic when they buy matching wedges or b) too uninformed about bounce and grind.

      The truth is that most players, even pretty good ones, can’t quantify the effects of bounce and grind because they simply have too small a sample size. You can’t go test different ground conditions at a big box store.

      Therefore, most people make the logical decision to stick with a general “set” of wedges. They may not be ideal, but they are consistent, and ok players can adjust to that.

      Great post.

      The soul of any wedge is the sole. Exactly what is “best” is certainly an individual choice. Proper use of the bounce is in part technique and in part course conditions.. Vokey continues to have more options than any major OEM and therefore offers the best chance. for a good fit. I use a 58* for my lob wedge and prefer an L grind which has been discontinued at 58* and I actually bought a few new ones on E-Bay. It can be difficult for some to find a place to demo wedges off of real grass but if a player is serious I believe it is worth the effort.

      Tony, appreciate the update here! I play a vokey SW & LW but wow, $199 for a SM8 wedge & all they’re doing is shaving a bit off the bottom! (isn’t that what tweaking the grind amounts to?). But for all those people who say that golf is a way too expensive game, there are “options”. Meaning, you don’t really need that new driver, last year’s model at 30% off will work fine for you. And there’s always eBay & the pre-owned sites. So I have no issues with them charging this much for a wedge, I’ve already found other means whereby I can really upgrade my equipment at a reasonable cost
