A couple of years ago I had a Vokey Oil Can lob wedge which I loved. After it got ripped off I replaced it with a Hogan wedge and now a Mizuno. I liked the Oil Can, but not quite enough to replace it with another one. Not the case with the Vokey Spin Milled.

The Vokey Spin Milled are wedges which have the grooves milled out of the 8620 mild carbon steel face by a computer controlled milling machine. The main grooves are not the only milling, there are even smaller grooves milled into the rest of the club face by a circular cutting tool (see picture #2). I’ve covered this type of face milling a couple of times before on the MacGregor Vfoil irons and the Eidolon V-Sole wedges. There’s a milling pattern which is only a few thousandths of an inch in the face which gives the player even more spin and control over his shots. The combination of the main grooves and the fine milling of the face result in a contact area 30% greater than regular wegdges. More contact area means more feel, more spin, more control.
