Custom finishes and stamps are no longer the domain of Tour pros.
It's now very common to see amateurs carrying wedges with their initials, a snowflake design, or something even more creative. And Vokey WedgeWorks has been at the forefront of making these cool customizations available.
Now, you can add brushed-copper as the fourth option for customizing your Vokey wedge. (The others are chrome, gunmetal, and a raw finish that rusts over time.) But the new brushed-copper finish is only -- at least for now -- being made available in the popular M grind.
And if you love watching your clubs "break in" over time, you're probably going to be a fan of the way the brushed-copper finish evolves. That's because the wedges start out with a black oxide finish that is lightly brushed to reveal the copper plating underneath. But over time, the black will start to wear off, revealing more of the copper. It's kind of the opposite of a popular heal and toe weighted putter finish, that starts copper and gets darker over time. Either way, I wouldn't be surprised to see the finish made available for other models.

The M Grind wedge is available in 54, 56, 58, 60 and 62-degree versions, each standard with 8 degrees of bounce. This sole grind of this particular model removes massl out of the heel, toe and trailing edge, making it easier to hit a wide variety of shots.
The brushed-copper Vokey Design SM6 M Grind wedges will be available May 12 for $199 each.
