FAIRHAVEN, Mass. (Jan. 21, 2019) – The best performing wedges in the game – Vokey SM7 – are now available in a stunning Slate Blue finish.
For years, Master Craftsman Bob Vokey has stressed the importance of players having confidence in their wedge at address – “A player has to love their wedge when they look down at it” – and finish plays a key role.
The finish on Vokey SM7 Slate Blue wedges, available in golf shops and through Vokey.com beginning Jan. 31, is applied like a PVD finish but with a unique material and more time intensive process that in combination provide a deep, rich slate blue color that is extremely durable.
“Very often wedge finishes can be beautiful, but they won’t last,” Vokey said. “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.”
Consistent with all Vokey SM7 finishes, Slate Blue is available in all 23 loft, bounce, and grind options (both RH and LH), while supplies last. This exemplifies the Vokey Design commitment to fitting. Finding the proper loft gapping, bounce and grind are critical to execute all of the necessary wedge shots. For help determining the right loft, bounce and grind, golfers can use the Wedge Selector tool on Vokey.com: https://www.vokey.com/tools/wedge-selector-tool.aspx.
Vokey SM7 models are also available in Tour Chrome, Brushed Steel and Jet Black finishes.
AVAILABILITY: Vokey SM7 Slate Blue wedges will be available in golf shops beginning Thursday, Jan. 31 (MAP $199). They will also be available for customization and purchase on Vokey.com. The stock setup features a Nippon Modus3 125 shaft and custom BV Wings New Decade Multi Compound Black Grip. Most custom shafts and grips are included at no up charge. Additional customizations such as character stamping are available for an additional fee.
