Ive had mine around 6 months now, and it is showing some wear, but I would still call it durable for wedge standards. No where near my lob wedge though, which Ive had for 2 years and can still rip a ball to shreds with a full swing.

The vokeys feel dull in my hands, though. Im looking into Nike VR wedges when they come out, mostly because I love the SV's, or some Clevelands, which also feel amazing.

This is my major (and only) gripe with these sticks. I have had a pair for 6 months, 54* and 60*. I only use them for few small work tournaments that I have payed in. I try to preserve the grooves by cleaning them thoroughly after each use and not letting detritus and rust set in.

the do loose their grip -- which isnt that bad a thing as I find I can get way too much action on the ball around the green from mid to full wedge out. My course has a number of sloping greens and the spin can see the ball landing at the back and coming back off the front....

Pity I cant do it deliberately

Sure they loose some spin in 3-6 months depending on how much and how hard they are hit. Unless you get your balls for free, this isn't such a bad thing. But the overall durability of the club is quite good. I've had mine about a year and a half. Great wedge and very consistant in distance.

It's true they are harsher feeling than forged wedges, but some would call that more feedback. One man's "soft" is another man's "mushy". You'll probably like this stick, but if you don't somebody else will be glad to buy it from you.

I just purchased a Vokey spin milled wedge. I love it but I heard that it wears out quickly. What do you guys think about the longevity of these.

I have played Vokey's (Spin Milled, the last 2 seasons) for the past 6 years and, yes, the razor sharp grooves do wear out after about 3 months of consistent play. However, i found that to my liking as i find that fresh Spin Milled wedges are too grippy.

(i've also heard of people, i think Erik does it too, who used a fine grain sand paper to immediately try to take-the-edge off brand new Spin Milled to try and down-grade the bite) On another not, my three vokey's (48, 56 and 60) needed replacing. I headed to my local pro shop and actually saw a wedge set of Mizuno Mp T raw haze (2007 models) for a great deal. The local pro, who has been using Mizuno wedges for a couple of seasons, said to me, if i dont prefer the mizuno wedges over the titleist, he will swap them over for me (minus the cost of the mizuno). I thought, why not, if it works out, i will have saved almost HALF the money. I used them while i was in japan for work (3 rounds) > the result > AMAZING!! They are a touch lighter than my Vokey's but after a round, i got used to it. I have found that with my wedge play match these clubs perfectly and that the 60 degree, has just as much rip/stop as the vokey. Also, i have found the feel in the Mizuno's amazing. has anyone else made the conversion from Vokey to Mizuno? After playing with Vokey's for so long > they have become a staple in my bag for almost 7 years! It would be great to hear if anyone else has made the switch (wedges only)..

I made the switch about a month ago from Titleist 50*200 and 54*SM to Mizzy's MP-R 52.7* and 56.10* Black Ni and quite honestly I'm in love with them. Iacas already did a review of them so no need for me to sing praise, but his review was a major contributor to my purchase.

I haven't played the Vokey's as long as you but I really liked the bite they had, so when it was time for a new set of wedges, they were my first choice. I actually hit the mizzy's further on avg. even with a 2* loft difference, go figure. Anyways, once I adjusted for the new wedge's I swear there was more feeling and control with the Mizzy's. When I first got my Vokey's I didn't know how to spin or work the ball with wedges so it's an unfair comparison. As with all the new wedges on the market, these things BITE. All in all, I love the looks and color of the Mizzy's alot better than the Vokey's and they just feel "right". Once my 60* gets a lil more worn, that's gonna get replaced as well.

Does anybody know the type of shaft used in the "original" spin milled wedges? - recently I switched to ZBs with an PX shaft and would also like to "update" my gap and sand wedge with the PX shaft. Is is it a taper od parallel tip hosel?

    • Why does Rory struggle with consistency?
    • I would say it depends on how the 3W distance works with the length of the holes he is going to be playing. If there are par 4s around 430 for example I think he would be foolish not to carry a club that enabled him to get there in 2. Agree however that flexibility goes up drastically if not carrying putter and with the tournament several weeks away there is theoretically enough time to get comfortable with using a low lofted metalwood or bladed wedge. Really would be ideal to know the course to help strategize.
    • i would suggest a more lofted fairway wood or hybrid since a 3 wood needs a good lie to be hit off the fairway.  If you are in the rough or in a bad lie, then the 6 iron would be your only choice.  A 5 wood might be shorter but is more flexible and adaptable in the types of lies you can play it from.  The iron for me would be anything from a 6 to 8 iron depending on your comfort and distance.  The wedge you should consider whether you can play a slightly less lofted wedge, like a gap wedge maybe.  However, the less loft you have the more skill you need in playing different shots.  Hitting a sand wedge is easier but it does mean most of your shots around and close to the green will be high lofted shots. The putter is the one club where I question whether you truly need it.  If you can putt with something like the wood/hybrid in your bag, that gives you far greater options and flexibility.  However, it would need practice since we rarely putt with any other club. In my case a 4 club choice would be 4 hybrid, 7 iron, PW and SW/LW depending on course conditions.  I would putt with the hybrid and use that for most tee shots.  On my home course, there are maybe two holes where I couldn't reach a green in regulation with those clubs.   Essentially long par 4's where I need to hit driver off the tee.
    • Are the 512 replies to this topic about Rory being overrated or has this become a Rory Catch all topic? If the latter, the topic title should maybe reflect it. Good to see him win again. His first since 2019. 2020 wasn’t his best year and an up-and-down 2021 so far with missing the cut one week and being top 10 the next.  But that has been Rory all along and maybe what spurred this topic: his inconsistent performance. One week he’s hitting it as well as anyone has and the next he’s out of it and struggling. His talent is undeniable, but inconsistency is keeping him down.
    • I'm not an expert but the swing in the video seemed like you did not bring the upper body around quickly enough. Is it possible your focus on not firing the shoulder right away is causing too much lag there? Swing is about tempo so too slow can be an error just like too fast.
