@David in FL and @mvmac.  Now you have me thinking about changing my SM4 58.12 with M grind to the SM5 58.11 K.  One question, what about opening the face with the K grind and flop shots?  Part of the benefit of the M grind was to allow you to open it wide and keep the relative bounce the same due to the relief near the heel.  I don't play a flop that often, but it does come in handy at times.  Does the K grind have that relief?

No, but I have no problem and all opening it up.  It's also great out of the sand.

 

I'll tell you.....they are SPINNY too.  I just throw pitches at the pin and they stop.  I can actually back up a pitch from as little as 15 yards or so if I really go at it.

I agree, I have the 56 and 60 SM5's in K grind and they are perfect for my swing right now given the grounds are pretty soft.  I am considering getting a 56* F grind for when things start to dry out here.

We're hard as a rock down here after a winter of little rain.  No problems at all with the grind or the bounce on my 60*.  I didn't think they made the 56* in K grind, that's why I got the F grind for that wedge......

You're right, they don't, my 55* is a TVD-K

Thanks, @valleygolfer.

My second trip to Dick's was a success. Proud owner of a 56.10 and 60.8, both M grind. Went straight to the course after the purchase. The 60 generates incredible spin. The M grind allows me to open the club up just slightly and stop the ball exactly where it lands. I'm currently gaming the e6. I didn't hit the 56, I spent 2 hours messing with the 60. I got them both in the raw black finish.

Thanks for the link, adds some understanding for me about the lofts and grinds. I'm liking the details of the S grind for some reason. Maybe I'll wander over to a local store during lunch sometime soon.

Spin is rather crazy with the 60. I had to start hitting closer to the hole because of the serious check up. I don't think I will wait as long to replace my wedges again.

I wish they still made the oil can finish

I collected mine on Friday, I went with for 46.08 and 50.08 in the F grind and 54.10 and 58.08 in the M grind and I am overly impressed with the M grind.

I have been practicing with the 58 from really tight lies and out of bunkers, and you can just open the thing up and just nip it while generating some really good spin.

They are great wedges that are very versatile from a verity of different lies and has made shot making easy.

Love my 60 and 52 black finish SM5's. Really fantastic wedges.
