Titleist Introduces Vokey Design SM8 Wedges In Slate Blue Finish
Unique, Premium Finish Available on all Vokey SM8 Models
CARLSBAD, Calif. (Feb. 23, 2021) – The overwhelming most played and best performing wedges in the game – Vokey Design SM8 –are now available in an ultra-premium Slate Blue finish.
Master Wedge Craftsman Bob Vokey has always stressed the importance of players having confidence in their wedge at address – and finish plays a key role.
“A player has to love their wedge when they look down at it,” said Vokey, whose short game tools account for nearly half of all wedges played on the PGA Tour.
The finish on the Vokey SM8 Slate Blue wedges is applied like a PVD finish, but with a unique material and more time intensive process that combine to provide a deep, rich slate blue color that is extremely durable.
“Very often, wedge finishes can be beautiful, but they won’t last,” said Vokey. “At the same time, the most durable finishes often aren’t stunning. Slate Blue combines the two. Not only will golfers love their wedge when they see it in the shop, the finish will last through the course of normal play.”
Consistent with all Vokey Design SM8 finishes, Slate Blue is available in select grinds (50.08F, 52.08F, 54.10S, 56.10S, 58.08M, 60.08M) in Australian and New Zealand golf shops on March 19, (both RH/LH), while supplies last. Slate Blue also incorporates the technology that sets SM8 wedges apart:
- Groundbreaking Progressive Center of Gravity (CG) pushed forward of the face for increased MOI, improved consistency and softer, more solid feel.
- 100% Inspected Spin Milled grooves that are cut with a level of precision that is unique by finish, producing maximum spin.
Vokey Design SM8 models are also available in Tour Chrome, Brushed Steel and Jet Black finishes.
