The Vokey Spin Milled family includes the latest wedges from Titleist, emerging from designer Bob Vokey's studio.

The pitching, gap, sand and lob wedges come in nine lofts, in two-degree increments, ranging from 48 degrees to 64 degrees. Three finishes are offered, chrome, black nickel and oil can, along with multiple bounce angles and tour-inspired sole grinds.

The new models feature CAD-generated profiles that use progressivity in the toe shapes and heel-to-toe radiuses to maintain consistency from loft to loft. Titleist explains in the news release:

"Characterized by progressive toe shapes, the heads feature a rounder profile as the lofts increase, and progressive toplines that instill visual continuity and confidence. CAD designed with precise progressive heel-to-toe sole radius, the higher lofts feature more radius to keep the leading edge low as the clubface is opened. The leading edges are squarer in the lower lofts, serving as a visual aid to achieve better alignment. In the higher lofts, leading edges are more curved, minimizing the likelihood of thin shots. Leading edge entry angles are consistent throughout all lofts to promote consistent and predictable club and turf interaction through impact."

The wedges are all built from soft 8620 carbon steel, with precision milled faces and Spin Milled grooves of the maximum allowed depth. The faces are not polished but instead are milled with a series of micro-edges, which Titleist says produces "300 percent higher face friction than polishing."

The stock shaft in Titleist Vokey Spin Milled wedges is Dynamic Gold S200, and the stock grip is Titleist Golf Pride Tour Velvet. They will be available in both left and right, and begin shipping in mid-November 2008 with an MSRP of $119 each.
