I'm trying to decide what model of to get - I tested the SM4 and like the feel of it, but I'm wondering if the 2009 model will give me more spin.  Is the spin factor that big of a difference?

I just acquired a new SM4 60.07 and only hit a few balls to compare to my SM 60.04...I feel like I still produce more spin with the old, non-conforming grooves of the SM, but once I get my wedges back from getting reshafted I'll be able to run some more comparisons.

If possible, get one of each and head to the range to compare for yourself.

The look of the SM4 line is definitely nicer I think...but not too worried about that.  As long as it performs!

Based on reviews I read, SM4 produces more spin than last years conforming model but still less spin than their older wedges with NC grooves.

Well, the knock on the old Vokeys is that the grooves wore down.

The SM4 Vokeys are heat treated so the grooves lasts longer. The SM4's, I think, look better to the eye.

Take your pick.

I have recently done a complete overhaul of my wedges to the SM4 model. I have found that there is a little less spin/grab around the green. It just doesn't bite as hard as the NC wedges do. This is pretty much a non issue if you just practice a little and get a feel for it. Out of the sand with the 56 and 60 the spin/bite is very good and easy to play with. Full shots with 52-56-60 and very responsive and grab/spin just fine.

to be totally honest most golfers will not notice a difference unless you are a single digits handicap and even then its easy to make any adjustments you need.

    • It’s been a month or two since I last played, but I took Classic out for a spin, and it worked just fine. The data was able to transfer from my device using my computer as well. 
    • Do you guys watch or like any YouTube instructions channel? I’m as a newbie follow a few that think help me learned. It might not better than lesson but for now it will do. I plan to take specific lesson though like griping and swing path. I watch a lot from Danny Maude and Mike Breed.
    • I was thinking “liquid metal” was what someone meant to be “hot melt”.
    • @Shorty, @boogielicious, and @iacas thank you for adding well-reasoned and factual statements to counter @Billy Z’s nonsense.   While I tend to agree to a limited extent that people can be overly sensitive these days, “Indian” and the equivalent (“red skins” and the like) are, as all of you pointed out, offensive—and not just a nitpicky level of sensitivity—but offensive to all reasonable people, given historical context and usage. Therefore, I think the ball club made the right decision. However, I’m not a fan of “guardians,” but I’m happy to see the change. 
    • This nails it. And if he read this he’d think..’yeah…another minion.’
