REVIEW: Titleist Vokey SM6 Wedges
The CG of the Vokey wedges is low in the lower lofts, mid in the mid lofts and high in the higher lofts. Kind of like a flighted system, to raise the flight of a lower lofted wedge and lowering the flight of the higher lofted wedges. It allows you to generate a more consistent and accurate flight on the ball. The CG helps create a consistent feel on each strike. You’re able to feel the difference that the CG makes as you hit each wedge. They all have a solid feel no matter the lie or desired shot.
The Titleist Vokey SM6 Wedges have a refined CG along with multiple grind options on the sole. They are partnered with certain lofts and bounce options to make them best suited for the shots you will need to hit with them. I went F Grind in the 50* and 54* and then M grind in the 58*. This set up worked great for consistent distances with the 50* and 54* and creativity with the 58*. I also went with the Black finish, which has been holding up as well as any black finish I’ve ever played. I’m impressed how great they still look after 15 rounds.
The Titleist Vokey SM6 wedges also have a very good headshape. From time to time some of the Vokey wedges haven’t fit my eye because of off-set or a leading edge that “bellies” out. But the clean transition from hosel to leading edge along with a smooth rounded toe are a good fit to what I want to see when I look down at a wedge.

The Titleist SM6 Vokey wedges have a solid feel as the CG manipulation addresses that aspect of the club. It is interesting how many aspects of the club and ball flight the CG impacts. The most important is that they hit solid shot after solid shot close to the pin. I’ve really been impressed by the accuracy and consistency of these Titleist Vokey SM6 wedges. It obviously has something to do with the progressive CG that helps you hit progressively closer shots.
