    I just got a new set of SM7's and have no buyers remorse after having a brand new set earlier in the year.

    I dont want to have to spend another $150-250 on a three wedge set for the SM8's like @texcrom mentioned

    3W: Titleist TS2 15* Tensei Pro White 70

    SM7s are a screaming bargain right now, and they are IMO the best wedge series ever made. I like the look of them better than the 8s, too. I can't imagine switching (but I've said that before 🤣).

    Watched this earlier today, and I am somewhat intrigued. It sounds like the biggest change will be in the higher lofted 60* wedges. I wonder what this "new" technology is??? I will probably pick up some SM7s for cheap, or I may give the new wilson forged wedges a go, seeing how they are a steal of a deal for what they are. Decisions decisions!

    Yes wait for the SM8 and then look to buy SM6 real cheap. There will be no difference between 6 & 8
