    it would be nice to have.....but i'm not good enough to pay that amount for a wedge.

  •  

    Would LOVE a wedge built by Voke but I probably wouldn't use it then!  :-)

    Only if I could spend the morning getting fit for wedges at his facility.

    Did you all see the cool stuff in the accessory section of Vokey's store?

    that was my thought as well.  and if you did use it, a couple years tops and it's worn out.

    For those with discretionary income, I would say bless you

    For me, a proper  fitting  for ALL my clubs  would be a far better use of my resources...

    Like others, I would love to own one, but wouldn't have the heart to use it. Can't see having a $350.00 club sitting around when the money could be used to buy a lot of other golf thingies. But hats-off to the collectors who can afford one in their trophy room.

    I would buy them if Stricker hand grinded them and hit them for me :)

    No thanks, wedges wear too fast to spend that amount on them

  •  

    If I could get one as a show piece like a hand made Scotty and if Vokey did it, I would!

    My game is perfect with the "off the rack" products. Take them to my clubfitter and have him tweak the lofts and lies a bit and I am good to go. I can buy 2 sets of wedges for the price of these things, and while they are really nice, my game can't tell the difference.

    Was bound to happen soon or later.

    People pay premium $ for stuff they think will work.

    I'm currently carrying 4 wedges so afraid no upgrades for me ... at this stage.

    $350 is past the price point for a wedge, even if it is handground.  A putter can be used for a lifetime and a driver lasts longer than we think (I was still gaming a 905R when I bought my 913 last fall).  Wedges wear out, though, and I just can't see people paying three times the "normal" Vokey price.
