Raw SM8’s it is.

Shout out to Budget Golf in a BIG way!

48F/54D/62M
Very nice order. For comparison, Standard SM 7 in satin on left, Vokey Hand Ground Raw
on right. Both are 60 degree D Grinds.

So, turns out they shipped 3/12, but, with schools closing and me having them shipped there has put them into limbo. Fortunately Scott with Budget reached out to Titleist and they changed the delivery address. So, hopefully early this week they’re in and I can get them stamped up!

Been playing the 52 and 58 for a few rounds and really like them. I got the darker but not black ones and they are holding up well.

I was wondering about that TBH.

I like my Vokey SM7s, just wished I could play them better. I am definitely considering going graphite shafts in them to match my iron set. I think that will make a huge difference in the feel.

That could screw up your swingweight/balance depending on which graphite shaft/weight and what you have now - Standard DG in wedges which is about 123g versus what you have in your irons.

Maybe Steelfiber 125, Recoil 110?, Accra 125? but even though I have 80g shafts in irons, I use a Nippon Pro Modus 3 Wedge 115 shafts (about 120+g) smooth feel and doesn't foul up my swingweight.

Lots of ways to fix/manage that.

Also, again, Budget golf and the crew there are AMAZING. The pricing was truly amazing.
