SM7 finish dictates grooves?

  1. Taken from the website “Vokey’s Spin Milled process is unique to each finish and loft for the sharpest, most consistent groove edges.”

    Does this mean my 50 deg F grind SM7 should have a different groove pattern to my 54 deg M grind SM7?

  2. No
  3. Ok, thanks.

    This has left me confused however, as my 50 deg F grind brushed steel finish SM7 has a very different visual appearance to my 54 deg M grind chrome SM7 when comparing grooves and face 'etching'. Hopefully the differences can be seen on the photos??

    Is this normal, or should I have any concerns?

  4. The groove width, depth and spacing is different depending on loft. There's one arrangement of grooves on 46, 48, 50, 52 degree pitching/gap wedges, a different arrangement on 54 and 56 degree sand wedges and a third arrangement on 58, 60 and 62 degree lob wedges.
  5. Thanks for this; it now makes more sense. This view is also confirmed by what it says on the Vokey website, although they quote slightly different loft ranges to groove patterns...."SM7 wedges also feature a distinct groove design between lofts: low lofts (46°-54°) are designed with narrower, deeper grooves, while higher lofts (56°-62°) have wider grooves."
    My 50 and 54 have different arrangements, which is contrary to the website.

    Thanks again,
  6. Interesting.

    Maybe I was remembering the SM6 having three different groove patterns.

    But to my eye, the grooves on my SM7 52.08F and 56.14F do look pretty similar it's true.
