    I'm looking into getting new irons and I'm wondering if I should get the vokey 46 rather than sticking with the stock pw... Any suggestions

    Me personally, I would keep the MB P and get Vokey SM6 52°, 56° & 60°.

    That's the set up I have now with the 714s and SM4s

    I'd say its mostly personal preference but if you wear out the PW quickly compared to the other irons then I'd go with the Vokey 46/48.

    I guess it would depend on how you use your PW.. I personally carry 2PWs in my 4 wedge set, AP2-45°, and vokey sm5 48°bent to 49°. The AP2 is my 140 yard club, my sm5 spins so much it wont carry more than 125 yds. So it's perfect for chipping fast & firm greens because i know it make my PROv1x check up no matter what. Good luck..

    I changed from the MP-5 PW to the SM6 46* F.
    In June, and never looked back.
    I kept the 46* stock shaft in, thought I would have to change over to the 6.0 shaft in. Never did, and gained 5 to 8 yards from the fairway.

    I think it really comes down to how you use the club. For me, the PW is used generally as a full shot club so I prefer it to match the remainder of my irons. I move into the Vokeys for shots that require much more feel and for shots where I tend to vary the swing speed and face angle more to hit a desired type of shot.

    Really appreciate this feedback. I also use my PW primarily with a full swing.

    I game the cb's 3-pw and have switched to a 46* adjusted to a 47* vokey sm6 f grind and I love it. Have more control and like the spin I get off the vokey wedge more. Personally I'm happy with my switch.

    I play 714s and went to the 46* Bob Voke this season. I like the improved accuracy but it took some time to adjust from losing 5 yds (135 vs 140 with the the stock P wedge). In the end I would recommend the 46*.

    I debated the same when I got my 716 AP2. I bent my 48 to 46 to go with 52,56 and 60 and went with 4-9. I feel more comfortable with the Volkey SM5 in hand inside 140.

    Vokey spins too much for me to get enough carry. Also inherently doesn't fly quite as far. I stuck with MB PW and then vokey 48 because I hit about 10 yard difference between them.

    I think it all comes down to personal preference. I play ap2 irons and opted for the Vokey 46 wedge. I think the Vokey has a little bit more feel than the standard wedge that comes with the set.

    Nobody is talking about the bounce of the Wedges I like to vary my wedges between 4* and 12

    I think this depends on what your game plan is with the PW in hand. I bought both and I found the MB PW is better for full swing distance consistency. But in my game I rarely full swing any wedges so I have the SM6 in my bag. It's easier to control flights/distance on half/three quarter swings with the Vokey in my opinion. Just depends on your style of play.

    I've just made the switch this year from the AP2 PW to the Vokey. I made the switch after converting my Gap,Sand, and Lob wedges from SM 5 to 6. I really liked the feel if the SM 6 in these 3 and decided to switch over the PW as well. I did have the same shafts as my iron set (C taper) installed all the way down to the sw.

    In both cases I'm very satisfied. I love the Vokey 46 as my PW. Both the "solid" feel and the mental aspect of having a Vokey in my hand (my brain says " you're supposed to hit these close!") make this a winner for me. I highly recommend it.

    The wedge question...for me it's still unanswered. I keep 6 in the car but only 3 in the bag, I would keep the 716s and add to the set. If you can play often you'll find the need for a 52, 54,56,58,60. Additionally if you have a wedge you like now keep it I have some going back into the early 80's...Good luck

    I currentl use 714 AP2 4i-AW. I use Vokey SM5 54° and 58°. I'm going to switch to a Vokey 50° next season but have also wondered what the benefit is to swapping out my PW. Interested to follow this thread!

    Thanks guys you've answered my question. I have SM6 50/56/60 and they are the prettiest and nicest clubs I've ever had. I'll get the 46 as well. My real question is will Titleist ask Bob V to make a full set of irons from 3 right through. That would be a premium set
