Vokey SM4 60.04

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 

i picked one up today for super cheap just because it was a good deal.  i have been looking for a 60 degree as my UW is 50 and my only other wedge above 50 is a 56.11, which i love and use for all shots.  honestly the only use i ever see for a 60 (for me) is short sand shots and lobs in thick grass to a downhill running green.

 

anyway started doing some research and 4 degree bounce may be TOO low for what i want to use it for.  thoughts?  it was cheap so i could get a profit in resale, so if it's not for me then i really don't care.  just curious on thoughts nonetheless.

04 wow thats a very low bounce that might be hard to play out of the sand IMO. Great for short chips and such of clean lies but i would thin that sucker alot. I prefer higher bounce out of the sand but hey check it out let me know.

why is it hard to play in the bunker?

 

took it to the range tonight and hit around their greens.  it was excellent on the lob and even full shots i was hitting it ~65 yards.  i thought i might hit it fat because i've read that, but didn't seem to be the case.

 

bunker shots were fair but the sand was very poor quality and really dense, so i couldn't even hit sand shots well with my normal sand wedge.  normally though i would only play the 56 in the sand, i just want the 60 for those extremely short sand shots with very little green to work with.

 

anyone else?

I would think a 4* bounce will dig into the sand, not what you want.

it depends how the sand is at the course.

 

When it's rock hard (or a very short shot), my low bounce 60 degree is my sandwedge. When they have fluffed it - I use the high bounce 56 degree.

 

I am sure you will find a use for it somewhere.

so is the consensus keep it or sell it and trade for a 7 degree?

if you can trade for a 7 degree, go for it - if not, enjoy the club

In one October range session, I met a guy with a CG12 60* LW with 4* bounce. He said he used it in spring or fall when the lies were tight. Otherwise, he uses about 8* bounce for LW.

 

He let me try a few shots. Off the brown scruff, it worked fine; remaining green fluff, more iffy.

that would be great off tight lies or anything hard but something soft you would think it would just dig in like others said. i dont like to change clubs during the year so id get something else but its your bag.

I had a 4 degree for a week. It was not a good fit for the soft conditions that I typically play in. If it works keep it, if not get the 7 degree. Play a few rounds and report back. I have the old SM 60/8 and the 60 TVD.

I have a Vokey 7 degree lob wedge. Versatile enough for most situations and playing conditions when the lob wedge is needed.

i play a 5 degree bounce mizuno and it works in all types of situations. I like the feel with low bounce wedges.
