Titleist Vokey SM10 wedges review

The most popular wedges on the PGA Tour have received an upgrade for 2024, but what changes can we expect from the Titleist Vokey SM10 range? Here’s a closer look.

The First Look

We have three colour options in this range, with Jet Black, Tour Chrome and the new finish: Nickel. I’m a big fan of the Nickel finish, which I can see being very popular on tour this year. The leading edges are tight and sharp in the lower lofts. The higher lofts are slightly more rounded. They sit brilliantly behind the ball and it feels like you are going to get some serious spin and control with these wedges.

The Tech

The new design of theses wedges is going to give you a lower flight, better feel and higher spin. This is achieved by a number of changes made to the new SM10.

Firstly, we have a new progressive centre of gravity placement through the lofts. The result is a lower, more controlled trajectory, more solid feel, and tighter dispersion from the lowest-lofted wedge to the highest. Secondly, we have Vokey’s patented Spin Milled design which has been refined to deliver higher, more consistent spin. Each TX9 groove is individually cut based on loft and finish and treated with high-frequency heat to maximise durability.

Lastly, we have progressive shaping. Lofts 46-52° feature a smaller profile and a straighter leading edge, while lofts 56-62° have a larger footprint and a more rounded leading edge for shot versatility. There are a total of six grinds including F, S, M, K, T and D with a total of 25 combinations in loft, bounce and grinds.

“I always tell players that the most important club in the bag is confidence. Getting fit for each of your wedges, and learning how to use them in different situations, is one of the fastest ways to gain confidence around the green.” – Bob Vokey, Master Craftsman, Vokey Wedges

“Player feedback drives our development process. Whether we’re talking with tour professionals or dedicated amateurs, every bit of player insight matters. All the advances we made to SM10, from looks and feel to grind options and desired flight windows, reflect that player input.” – Corey Gerrard, director of marking, Vokey Wedges

The bunkered Verdict

Watch what I had to say on these wedges below, or keep scrolling to read my thoughts…

I’m a big fan of these wedges. I got fitted at the Titleist National Fitting Centre at St Ives for a set and I have to say: It was brilliant.

Using the new Vokey Fitting App it was a great experience and it narrowed down the best options for me. That was based on the shots I like to play and the courses I tend to play back in Scotland. It was a very personalised experience and I get the impression it would work for anyone. 

I ended up with a 50°, 56°, and a 62° and I have to say the feel and control I had from fuller shots and partial shots around the green was really impressive. The lower launch was brilliant and the spin was so impressive. On every shot around the greens, I was getting a couple of hops before the ball was checking up nicely.

These new SM10 wedges are a game changer and I highly recommend getting fitted for these.
