Titleist Introduces New Jet Black Premium Finish to Vokey Design SM9 Wedges

CARLSBAD, Calif. (Jan. 25, 2023) - The tour-proven craftsmanship, performance and technology of Vokey Design SM9 wedges will now be available in a new premium all-black Titanium Carbide Vapor finish. Available globally on March 3 (while supplies last), Vokey SM9 Jet Black Premium wedges bring a fresh look to the most played wedges across the worldwide professional tours and with golfers everywhere.

The all-new finish is built to last, thanks to a time-intensive heat-treated binding process that enhances durability. The wedges are paired with a Dynamic Gold Onyx S200 shaft and an all-black Tour Velvet 360 grip with BV Wings to complete the modern, sleek look.

“A player has to love their wedge when they look down at it and finish plays a key role,” said Master Craftsman Bob Vokey. “Having confidence in your wedge at address is hugely important.”

Jet Black Premium is available in all 23 Vokey Design SM9 loft, bounce, and grind combinations in both right and left-handed through custom order. 

SM9 TECHNOLOGY

Ultimate in shot versatility

  • Vokey SM9 wedges are the ultimate in shot versatility, featuring six tour-proven grinds. Finding the right grind to match your swing and playing conditions will give you the best turf interaction, contact and shot performance.

Progressive Center of Gravity for precise distance & trajectory control 

  • The CG has been raised vertically by adding weight to the topline design, where a tapered pad at the back of the toe helps align the CG properly without being visible from the playing position – promoting a more controlled ball flight and solid contact.

New patented Spin Milled process for maximum spin

  • A new Spin Milled cutting process in the SM9 models – which includes tightening our allowable tolerances – produces consistently sharper grooves wedge after wedge, resulting in higher, more consistent spin.

VOKEY WEDGE SELECTOR: The Vokey Wedge Selector tool on Vokey.com helps golfers select the proper loft, bounce and grind options for their swing and course conditions.
