IMPORTANT CORRECTION The SM8 was the higher spinning wedge on the partial shot (10,719). Our launch monitor software has an error where the spin number is blanked out over 9,999rpm, so we have to manually enter numbers in video editing. We made a typo and reversed the partial wedge spin numbers by accident.

ZY says:

So basically no need to change

duffypratt says:

Great idea on comparing years, but don’t limit it to one year. It would be very cool to see new vs 2019 used vs., say 2017 used.

M says:

Looking at refreshing the grooves on my gamer wedges. Notice the SM8s removed the 54.08M option which is a bummer for me. I see they added a 54.12D but which is close but with more bounce (obvi). Any insight on why they removed a grind in the 54 range? I hear more and more about folks using 54s especially now with lofts getting stronger. Would make sense to keep more grinds in this space, no? I may stick with another 54.08M SM7 (if I can find one) and go with SM8s in all others?

And PLEASE do a 2019 v 2020 bag comparison. That would be a ton of fun. Bonus would be for even earlier best of bag comparisons (eg 2015 v 2020). Love the content fellas, keep it up! Also, any reason you all don't upload 4k to youtube? When I watch on my TV I can hear it crying 😉

Estate Beats says:

Just got the sm8 60 m grind, and wow. It’s absolute money. The feel is amazing. And I’m sticking it very tight.

Moe Norman says:

Love the vids. Always informative and it’s not click bait. Meat and taters! Keep it up boys!

Nick St Pierre says:

Would these be considered less forgiving than the wedges (50, 55 and 60) that came with my JPX Hot Metal Iron set?

Prima Facie says:

Have had Titleist blind fitting and ended up ordering SM8 46F, 50F, 54D, 58S🙂

Vikram Pitre says:

Regarding the shafts, what’s the difference between the std wedge shaft and the AMT R300 Black? One fitter used the std wedge shaft for the tests saying they will spin more, while the other fitter just gave me the black shaft to test.

Ritik says:

What a FANTASTIC swing!

elb2018 says:

Hope you repair all those pitch marks when you guys are done

Johannes Scholtz says:

Would be great to see the SM8 vs RTX4 ….or is Cleveland coming out with something new soon?

Captain Merica says:

Do the raw wedges perform much different??

Matt Strong says:

Did I miss Matty describing feel and preference? I know Vokey talks about feel but I was hoping Matt would elaborate on that aspect as the numbers may be self explanatory.. the feel maybe not so much . I took 1 swing with a 60 SM8 and flushed it and it was kind of a wow moment. It felt better just off the one swing then my SM7 Raw

Micheal Weathers says:

Ian, I know this is an older video but it popped my interest again. With not much difference between the 7's and 8's, could you do a quick compare with 5's or 6's against the SM8s?

Collin Ciepiela says:

So if sm7 just as good and 50 dollars cheaper go with sm7 for average golfer?

Barrett Shaw says:

would love to see the 2019 bag vs 2020 bag comparison

terrace abbott unrau says:

Have a 53 m grind nice if u use the bounce

Justin Mikulik says:

Hi guys i really like the videos! As for wedges is it possible to add a moisture element to the tests how it might compare. I feel if a wedge can perform and retain close to its performance as possible in wet conditions that is a huge plus! Keep up the great work!

Steve Matheny says:

These guys are absolute legends. Thanks gents!

Kelly Thomas says:

I want to know if vokey changed anything on the face of the sm8 to help keep spin up during wet conditions. Everything you talk about has been all about the cg placement and that's it.?

Phil T says:

Could put this tempo on a loop and just watch it all day.

Jeff Grove says:

This was a good test , some changes to my bag .Thank you .

Ben Plaunt says:

Next try it with a wet face and wet ball with a couple of different models

Mark Pratt says:

50, 54, and 60…What grinds?

Mason McLaughlin says:

Review the new pxg irons

Joh Takeuchi says:

Can you guys review Fujikura speeder tr ? Really want to know how the shaft really work in details , I’m currently using it the 857 x version.

whogg0521 says:

Be safe guys

Paul Shepherd says:

More good work lads… SM8 mass change clearly impacting results. It’s all in the detail….. love my SM7’s still. I never hit a full shot with any of my wedges.
