I like the volkey better in terms of performance, but the Cleveland wedges are much easier to hit as they don't grab as much. The volkeys took awhile to get used to. depending on how much you play or practice i would recommend the Clevelands if you can't spend hours on the chipping green.

So, would you rate the Volkey better over all? I was about to start a thread asking which you guys thought were better. I have always had Cleveland Wedges in the past and was thinking about giving the titleists a try. If they perform better, then I can get used to hitting them.

The vokeys are what they are, just solid no-frills wedges. They're not designed to help you in any way. You'll only get out of a vokey what you put into it. If your stuck between the two i would just concentrate on the feel of the head has you make some half swings and see which one fits your tempo or touch better.

Im def leaning towards the CG14, they seem easier to swing, easier to hit, and more forviging. Damn things are just money, more than my driver to replace 3 wedges. I def am gonna need to adopt a kid next year to claim on my taxes.

Yeah, they are high but are they any higher than the Titleist? They are having a sale on them at my local golf course and I can get them for 90 but that is about as cheap as I can get them around here.

For the average golfer I think just about any model of Cleveland wedges are better than the Titleist wedges. Vokeys are good clubs (I own 1), but they are harder to hit in my opinion. I have owned several models of Cleveland wedges and have always been impressed. The Nike wedges also seem nice and like they would be easier to hit than Vokeys. They're good enough for Tiger...

Stuck on which one, had a "bad outing" with the pure spins and have given up on them. Anyone got input on this. Im new and would appreciate some good opinoins.

They are called VOKEYS. I would go w/ the titleist.

Are they really that much harder to hit? I was talking to the assistant pro at my course yesterday, and he says that he likes Cleveland hands down. He says that he has never been able to hit the Titleist wedges. I think I am going to try them out since I now need a 60.

A wedge is almost like a putter - different people like different clubs. A Vokey is not as easy to hit as some other wedges (Cleveland included), but the difference is not huge from a technical perspective - they just feel different. You could buy wedges from any of the major manufacturers and probably be fine for a while with them. I don't think Clevelands are going to 'hold you back' from getting better (and neither would Nike, Taylor Made, Callaway, etc.)

One other issue not mentioned before that might factor in is 'wear'. Vokey's tend to wear much quicker than most of the wedges from other companies. Most people will agree they possess more 'bite' when new, but because of the soft metal used they wear more quickly.

This would be the reason for me not to buy one...but we will see. Good info here

    • Day 8.  Spent ten minutes hitting 8-iron and 6-iron indoors, off a mat, into a net.  Took about as many minutes.  Then, I wandered out back to do Speed Sticks.  I haven't read the rules of that encouragement role, but I should:  my last time (before a few minutes ago) using speed sticks, or at least measuring it, was October 25.
    • Just want to add that it's also related to ankle dorsiflexion. So for the last month before each round I'll take the grip end of a club and press it into the top of my calf as I rehearse the backswing and early downswing. Basically I don't want that angle from the foot to the ankle to change. Puts me in a position to work through the hip joint, which means that knee won't collapse inward. Gives me a good feel and reminder before and even during the round.

    • Hmmm I will have to ask around. I may be able to rent a trackman bay for an hour for the cost of a lesson. Bought the videos just get a visual representation of key #5 drills, very worth it!
    • Yea, I think it depends on how you view a caddies role. If a caddie is meant to have a bigger role for the golfer, then sure that makes sense. I do think the book even takes away from a caddies skill to read a green. I think at a certain level, the green reading books need to be limited. I rather a caddie be good at reading a green versus using a book. Same with a golfer.
