New limited edition release for Vokey Design in the way of a finish option. Earlier in the year, Cameron Smith won the Sony playing all-black SM8 wedges and now is the time you can get your hands on some.

This limited release features a Jet Black raw finish with a black paint fill to complete the murdered out dark look. Each SM8 is then complimented with a True Temper Dynamic Golf S200 Black Onyx shaft and exclusive Golf Pride New Decade Multi Compound Black/Gray grip with the iconic BV Wings logo.

These are quite the treat. Not sure I like these over the satin look with the chrome highlight. I agree with stamping this is going to be a standout.

I dont quite get the black wedge thing myself. I want to be able to clearly see the face of the club and where I'm aiming it. The lines of black wedges can become difficult to see in thicker rough etc.. To each their own.

I really like this release! Any information on how the finish is applied to the wedge? Is a “coating” or a “blended compound” like DBM?

They're good looking. I'm in the camp of if your club heads are black you should have black shafts too. Glad to see they went with the murdered out dark look on them.

Its a black finish on a raw wedge, so it will wear.

I just want another blue offering. Those are my favorite clubs to imagine buying even though I never actually buy one.

Good looking wedge, but I think I will hold off until I see some wear pictures.

I saw this email in my inbox this morning and I'd be lying if I haven't already designed a 48/10 F wedge. so tempting

There is a bit of a hack with the jet black. With the sm7 you could take them, soak them in vinegar and strip off the black and you had raw wedges without the raw up charge.

I think you are probably right here. I went from a guy that loves rust to one that is not a fan for some reason. But yet I love the jet black look of these.

I didn't think about this when ordering mine. I'll try to get a comparison between the new 49* and the old 50* to see how much of a difference it makes. One of the reasons I went with the black is to reduce the glare from the sun when looking down.

The jet black finish on these looks amazing. I’m not sure I can or will ever go back to a chrome or satin finish.

Black wedges always look good but these look incredible with the entire thing being blacked out!. Add the shaft and the grip... :love:
