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

    • I just can't believe this on top of everything else has happened to him, he was supposed to win 25 majors and at least 10 green jackets and everything just derailed in 2009 and just setback after setback. We got a brief taste of his greatness at Augusta and then the world has to stop and just before we can see the second encore this has to happen.?When he had it all clicking in the early 2000's no one has ever played this game better than him and I don't think we will see anyone ever at least in our lifetimes dominate professional golf like he did ever. When I heard the news I just felt an emptiness I really never felt before about the game, sure the world keeps spinning on its axis but it's just never going to be the same for me on Sunday at Augusta.
    • I watched this video twice. I found it very interesting. Here's what I heard. First, I think the biggest point Mark was trying to make is that a golfer should in an ideal world built their bag one club at a time. As you go to lower and lower lofted clubs, you are more and more likely to need some help getting the ball in the air. It is hard to create proper launch conditions without enough loft. Where in the bag that happens (be it your 6 iron or your 2 iron) will depend upon your delivery, your swing speed, and it will be different for everyone. Some folks can hit a 2 iron. Other folks should drop from their 6 iron on up and go to a SGI iron or a hybrid.  Second, higher loft produces higher consistency. The trend of getting everything lower and lower lofted while possibly helping you hit the long irons, it might be hurting you in the short irons and traditionally higher lofted clubs. Loft is your friend when it comes to consistency.  Third, the further you are from target, the harder it is to hit target... No matter who you are. Fourth, higher handicap golfers are less consistent (i.e. have more bad shots) than lower handicap golfers. This creates a ton of what Mark called "noise" in the data. And with all that noise you can make an argument for anything you like. Therefore be careful when you are testing/getting fitted, because a fitter/salesperson can make what ever they want out of the data.  Finally, better players hit all clubs better. Worse players hit all clubs worse. The archer is more important than the arrow.
    • I apologize for resurrecting this thread but I thought this would be relevant information. The difference between Tiger's dip and Hogan's dip is that Hogan stopped the dip past P6 and only raised his head from that point on, even while hitting a driver. Tiger's just kept dipping past P7 and maybe P8. Mac O'Grady also raised his head in the downswing as well after his dip, just a bit earlier at P5 onwards. I believe this is a big part of the reason why Tiger needed multiple back surgeries and Hogan none, even Byron Nelson needed back surgery in his 40s as recalled in his autobiography and he definitely had a major head dip that continued past P7.  Now, I notice this head raising in downswing move after the post P4 dip only occurs with Hogan and Mac and very very very few others; I'd say 99.99% of golfers including the top tour pros today continue to dip past P6 and P7 especially with the longer clubs. That would mean only a handful of golfers in the world would truly pass Key #1 if this move was required to master it.
    • For any one wanting a cheaper sharpening option, the Accusharp is decent and requires no skill level to use.  Amazon.com  
    • Can't find the article or blog but I remember reading about Paul Wood (PING engineer) talking about how from a physics standpoint, more compact heads worked better for more skilled players. Basically a longer/wider face makes it harder for the better player to square up the face and hit the center. This bit hints at it.
