Bounce and sole grinds allow golfers to be fit into the best performance for their swing type and course conditions. SM8 wedges have six options.
The F Grind is an all-purpose grind with a traditional full sole, designed to be used primarily on full swings and square face shots.
The S Grind is designed for stability on full shots, best used for square-faced shots with a touch more versatility, based on feedback from Tour pro Steve Stricker.
The M Grind, Bob Vokey’s favorite, is made for players who like to rotate the face open and shut for serious versatility around the greens.
The D Grind is the “player’s high bounce wedge”. It features the same crescent shape of the M with a higher effective bounce for golfers with a steep angle of attack.
The K Grind is the highest bounce grind in the lineup, designed to be the most forgiving for play out of bunkers.
The L Grind has a narrow crescent shape for maximum versatility around the greens, but it’s also the least forgiving.
