New SM7's

Leonard WashingtonLeonard Washington Advanced Members Posts: 147 ✭✭
With the new Titleist hybrids and irons starting to leak out, has anyone heard about a refresh for the SM6's? I believe they are typically on the same release cycle...

    If the release timeline stays the same, they should be released in March of 2018. Rumor is there is a raw option coming to retail.

    Nothing is confirmed on the raw option, but I hope it's true. And you have 8 months between now and then - plenty of time to need a new set.

    "I hear there's a raw option coming to retail."



    -Said someone every year since the last ones came out like 12 years ago



    The $250 ones on Vokey.com don't count by the way.

    I think with the last two releases, SM5 and SM6, they have been out on tour for the Las Vegas tournament, the Shriners or the Justin Timberlake or whatever it is actually called these days.



    They are then typically released at the end of March to the public.

    I've given up hope that we'll see raw as a stock retail offering from any wedge manufacturer. They've all tried it and clearly have the sales numbers to tell them it's not it's worth it. The reality is that the average golfer doesn't want to buy a wedge that's started rusting. The Nike wax coating from the Engage wedges was a cool solution, but that didn't work in the market either.



    Equipment aficionados on WRX don't make up a large segment of the golf equipment buying market. So, since there is limited demand, we're going to pay a premium for the limited supply that's made available. I'm just thankful we still have the option to buy wedges with finishes that can be stripped at home without too much effort.

    Hopefully the brushed copper finish will be available. I have the limited edition release with that finish and it's amazing -- it was beautiful out of the box, and it keeps looking better and better as the copper starts showing through wear.

    Tell me why guys strip them? Look, feel, spin? Do they wear better groove wise and can they be reconditioned...err...new grooves? Do you practice with "range" set?

    I don't think the performance is really any different with raw wedges compared to those with a finish, but some people (myself included) prefer the look of a raw wedge

    It's pretty frustrating that Vokey doesn't even offer a raw gap wedge for lefties. The only options are M Grind 54, 56, 58, and 60. So I had to pick up a raw black SM5 50 then strip it but they don't get near the rust on them of the truly raw wedges. Now it's onto the Nike Engage

    I miss the raw finish I had on my Cleveland wedges back in my junior days. I can't justify dropping the cash for the vokey raw versions these days so I'm still rocking my sm4s as of right now. Perhaps I'll finally make the plunge for a new set of they make a raw sm7 for retail. That would be sweet!

    I hear you on 25 rounds. Thankfully I have vendor golf to fall back on. Youth baseball is the killer of golf.



    On topic, I am curious to see what changes are made. I have never been happier with my wedge setup than I am know. I have spent fortunes on TVD's and whatnot only to end up with OTR SM6 that perform amazingly.

    I'm shocked at what some golfers will spend money on...$250 per wedge...gheesh?!




    They can be had for much less. I just got 3 SM6 Raw for $175 a piece. Is it more than standard? Yes, but I don't have mess with stripping them.


    Tell me why guys strip them? Look, feel, spin? Do they wear better groove wise and can they be reconditioned...err...new grooves? Do you practice with "range" set?




    I think they feel better. I have even stripped a black Vokey, and the Raw Vokey feels different.



    Yes, I keep my old sets and use them as a practice set. I also only hit PRO V's instead of range balls. Your actual game ball flights lower and does not wear out the grooves as fast.

    Anymore on these?



    My fitter was down at TPI in Carlsbad and hit them and some Porto types with Mr Vokey him self. Lots of new grinds, but he didn't know what was coming to retail.

    Would love to see oil can come back. My dad got me hooked on them, beautiful brand new and once they start getting a little wear on them they are really cool. Not a fan of the black or dark grey finish personally.

    Ask your rep. They might have a promo flier on the SM7. Might even be a new grind coming. Who knows... I believe in Nessy.

    The finish starts to come off. Once I have them worn in, the sole and the area where I strike the ball on the face start turning silver/raw. The oil can on the rest of the club starts to turn a darker brown and with some moisture (after a round in the rain, for example) with start to rust a little. Really unique finish, in my personal opinion

    Thanks! Sounds like an option if they don't release a raw version. I suppose if you play in early morning dew and bunkers could speed up the process?

    Hopefully the brushed copper finish will be available. I have the limited edition release with that finish and it's amazing -- it was beautiful out of the box, and it keeps looking better and better as the copper starts showing through wear.

    I picked up a 60* in the copper as well. Agree with everything you've said about looks and wear. It's soft too. I've heard from several sources that the copper will be an option in the 7's but I'm not sure how reliable they are. Hopefully very! image/smile.png' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':)' />

    You're actually helping to support my original point. The PUR wedges are made from 304 stainless steel, so they're an entirely different animal than a raw Vokey made from 8620 carbon steel. The PUR wedge is going to maintain is showroom appeal on the retail floor because it isn't going to rust in the same way as a raw carbon steel head.



    While Cobra is accurate in saying that these wedges are "raw" because they don't have a plating, it's a bit of marketing speak if you ask me. Golfers have a preconceived notion of what raw wedges mean and these aren't it.

    Why not just buy the raw option now offered by Wedgeworks? Yes they are $50 more but by the time you get to pick you shaft, grip, and adjust it to your specs it is about a wash.
