    Any thoughts on how my money would be better spent?

    Definitely a personal choice. I went with the T200 48, mainly because I use it for full shots and that gives me a consistent look and feel with the rest of the set including the same graphite shafts. I go Vokey 52, 56, and 60 in the wedges with steel shafts.
  3. I agree with Dale. Whatever you prefer. I went with the 48 degree wedge with my T200s as well. Then 52 and 56 degree Vokeys.

    I have the 48 T200 as Dale stated, it's mainly a full shot club for me. Not used around the green for anything.
    From there I go:
    Vokey SM 8 52 08 F
    Vokey SM 8 56 10 S
    Vokey SM 8 60 08 M

    Those are my 100 & in clubs & around the green scoring clubs as well.

    But it's still a personal choice of feel & how it works for you.

    I think the Vokey might be less expensive than the T200 GW. The Vokey, unless you customize it, is more likely to be available in store. Whereas, the T200, you will most likely need to order. For me, I regard the GW as an extension of my irons, so, I went with the T200 GW.

    In agreement. Based my decision to go with the wedges that go with my T300 irons, on my fitter's recommendation. I am using the 48* and the 53*, as we did on my previous 718AP1s. Only Vokey I carry is a 58.12D. My Titleist product specialist fitter has never failed me.
  8. I'm playing the T300's 6-AW 48° in graphite and thinking of doing the same as you, adding the 53° T300 and Vokey 58°-12D all in graphite.

    Im in the minority on this one. I prefer the Vokey 48 to the gap wedge in the set. It just sets up cleaner to me and I feel that it’s easier to flight the ball with the Vokey. That’s just my opinion. Obviously many others feel differently.
  10. I prefer the Vokey 48. I have the older AP3 irons 4-W and Vokey 48, 54 (bent to 53) and 58. I feel the Vokey wedges are easier to take distance "off" from full swings. Recently fitted for a combo set of T200 (4-6) and T100S (7-W). Same Vokey setup will fit right in with new irons.

    Steve N, Kurt K and me make three.

    I like the Vokey 48, too. I never felt as accurate with the T200 that came with my set. Not sure why I ordered the T200 set with a 48* GW in the first place. I have always used a Vokey GW. Maybe I wanted to try it. Don't remember now, but sold it within the first couple months and put a 48.10 Vokey in. Haven't looked back.

    I went with the T100s 48 degree (bent to 49), based on a blind test of wedges. Even Mr. Vokey at the recent TTI at Pinehurst indicated that the blind test is the best way to determine which to use (though he prefers the Vokey, of course).
  13. I also opted to go with the Vokey 48, 54 and 58. Went with 4-PW on the T200’s, can’t say how that decision will play out for me yet, I have another 4 weeks (hopefully) until the clubs arrive. Can’t wait though. This is my first go with Titleist but I am excited and can’t wait to get them on the course.
  14. I think the T200 grooves will last much longer than the vokey. So whilst it may cost more at point of purchase, it will be cheaper in the medium to long run.
