PRECISE DISTANCE & TRAJECTORY CONTROL
SM9 takes SM8’s forward centre of gravity (CG) and raising it even further, promoting a more controlled ball flight and solid contact.
MAXIMUM SPIN / NOTHING SPINS LIKE A VOKEY
SM9’s new grooves are cut to the edge to maximize spin. Each Vokey wedge is 100% inspected for utmost quality and performance, and a localized heat treatment is applied to the impact area to double the durability of the groove.
· SPIN MILLED GROOVES
SM9’s patented Spin Milled grooves are meticulously engineered through a new cutting process to maximize spin and durability. The process starts by cutting the face perfectly flat with a high-speed saw. Then every groove is individually cut based on loft and finish; low lofts (46°-54°) are designed with narrower, deeper grooves, while higher lofts (56°-62°) have wider, shallower grooves.
· 4 HEAD FINISHES
SM9 comes in 4 head finishes including, Chrome, Raw, Brushed Steel and Jet Black, all offering different feels.
