Vokey Tour Representative Aaron Dill has noticed something. “I’ve been stocking more and more Jet Black heads on the Tour Van each year,” he says. “Players love the look of it, and the contrast you get when you add custom stamping and paintfill—it just pops. Jet Black also helps players reduce glare on those really bright days. When you add in the black shaft and grip, it’s a sharp setup.”
With so many pros taking notice of the Titleist Vokey Design SM8 Jet Black Wedges, you know something must be right about the clubs. For instance, Cameron Smith, the winner of this year’s Sony Open, played with all black SM8s. Now you can find out for yourself what the pros already know—but only with a limited release of the Jet Black Wedges.
The SM8 wedges feature the Jet Black raw finish so complete that even the logos and graphics have been filled in with black paint. The clubs also feature a Dynamic Gold S200 Black Onyx shaft topped off with the exclusive Golf Pride New Decade Multi Compound Black/Grey grip with BV wings. The face of the wedge has a 7 percent increase on MOI that results in higher lofts for greater distance and improved trajectory control.
Voke also lengthened the hosels and counterbalanced the weight using high-density tungsten in the toe. The wedges come in six different grinds as well, each designed for different skill levels—steep, neutral, shallow—and for shot style and course conditions—firm, neutral, and soft. SM8 wedges can also be personalized with six toe engravings, 10 character stamping and 15 characters around the toe, and paint fill.
Vokey’s Jet Black SM8 wedges are available in golf shops everywhere and are priced at $179. If you’re wondering why pros are playing with black clubs more, then here’s your chance to experience for yourself what the difference is.
