I had them in S7 and now in S8. Great finish. I alternate my with the all black so I don't accidentally grab and hit my 54 instead of 50.

 

The finish is very durable!

I've heard the blue finish on the SM8 holds up even better than the same finish on the SM7. I don't own them, but have seen them and they look great in person. 

I havent played them so I dont want to misspeak..... but I saw 2 of the SM8's in the Pre-owned section of PGA superstore. The bottoms of them were completely worn off and chrome

 

and agree they look amazing in person. I honestly went to trade in my black SM8's for the blue but once I saw those there and how they looked I walked right out

This is VERY disturbing. tigercolt, ZPrime - don't mean to be a bother, but are you seeing any signs of wear on the finish of your wedges? ZPrime - you said you used the SM7 so you probably used it for a year?) You couldn't have been too displeased if you upgraded to the 8. Big point is, I've seen no negative reviews until JoeFrigo's above. Trying to figure out what's up here.

 

One of the main reasons I ordered them was for the durability of the finish. That is how Vokey is marketing them. They are more expensive (by about $40) than the other four in the SM8 line, but - well this is what Vokey himself says:

 

The finish on the Vokey SM8 Slate Blue wedges is applied like a PVD finish, but with a unique material and more time intensive process that combine to provide a deep, rich slate blue color that is extremely durable.

“Very often, wedge finishes can be beautiful, but they won’t last,” said Vokey. “At the same time, the most durable finishes often aren’t stunning. Slate Blue combines the two. Not only will golfers love their wedge when they see it in the shop, the finish will last through the course of normal play.”

Totally forgot to post this but this is from PGA Superstore… to be fair it looks like some negligence but no idea what could have caused this

I get that ppl like to keep your clubs looking nice but these are wedges….

 

you hit them out of sand, you take big divots, hit them of the nasty lies…

 

they are going to wear..

 

if it is work down to the Chrome that is a good thing, it means someone used it and practiced lots 

 

not sure why ppl hate wear?
