Titleist Releases SM8 Wedges in New Slate Blue Finish

By: Golfshake Editor | Tue 23 Feb 2021 | Comments

The hugely popular and acclaimed Titleist Vokey Design SM8 wedges have been further enhanced by a newly revealed ultra-premium Slate Blue finish.

Master Wedge Craftsman Bob Vokey has always stressed the importance of players having confidence in their wedge at address, and finish plays a key role in that.

A player has to love their wedge when they look down at it,” said Vokey, whose short game tools account for nearly half of all wedges played on the PGA Tour.

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 colour that is extremely durable.

Very often, wedge finishes can be beautiful, but they won’t last,” added 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.”

Consistent with all Vokey Design SM8 finishes, Slate Blue is available in all 23 loft, bounce, and grind options (both RH/LH), while supplies last. Slate Blue also incorporates the technology that sets SM8 wedges apart:

  • Groundbreaking Progressive Center of Gravity (CG) pushed forward of the face for increased MOI, improved consistency and softer, more solid feel.
  • 100% Inspected Spin Milled grooves that are cut with a level of precision that is unique by finish, producing maximum spin.

Vokey Design SM8 models are also available in Tour Chrome, Brushed Steel, Jet Black and RAW finishes. For assistance determining the right loft, bounce and grind, golfers can use the Wedge Selector tool on Titleist.co.uk


Vokey Design SM8 Slate Blue wedges will be available in Titleist authorised retailers from Friday, March 19th SRP: £179 / €215


The Slate Blue stock setup features a True Temper Dynamic Gold S200 shaft and custom Blue/White BV Wings New Decade Multi Compound grip – with most custom shafts and grips included at no additional charge. Additional customisations, such as character stamping, are available for an additional fee.
