the black look is really good - but still waiting for them to find a way to keep this color from scratching up as most do quite quickly...

The DBM options on the market do not really wear all that much. Not a ton of them, but they exist.

Love the look. Absolutely gorgeous. If I could though, I would change the shafts I think.

Those look awesome. Can some one tell me what’s the difference between a S200, S300, and so on?

I just got in my first SM8 with the Jet black finish and will be using it. I'll try to get a few pics here in a week or two.

I love the black on black - I have never had a set of Vokey wedges but these would do nicely.

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 am totally with you here. I love the rust look, but I cringe every time I clean them because it makes the towel a mess.

These wedges are so good. From the coating to the grip, it’s just sharp.

Wear is always my concern with black clubs though.

At work so I don't have any pictures but it was on my mind. So far I've been happy with the durability of the Jet Black finish. From a distance they still look almost new. I do notice a little lighter color, mostly if there is a little glare, from the bottom of the face. A little of this probably has to do with having to use a wire brush to clean the grooves. I try to limit it as much as I can but we have a very dense clay like mud that will not come out of the groves without. I'll see about getting some pics after work.

I noticed this as well with these. I don't recall doing it near as much with my SM7's. I have also noticed it much more on the dozen ProV1x that we received from Titleist. I've saved them for tournament rounds and have noticed that they seem to get 2-3 small little cuts from the grooves. Not sure if it's the covers or just the fact that for some reason I have hit a few more really crisp clean wedge shots with them. Could be just a coincidence because of that.
