    Spin milled ones are those that have extra milling on the face to produce more spin.

    Oil, refers to oil can finish, which is a dirty yellowish(or oil, if you will) finish to the club.

    You'll notice more spin, especially on more descending swing paths. I have a 60* CG10, and it gets quite a bit less than my Y-Cutter TaylorMade wedges, which are similar to vokeys.

    The only bad thing about the Oilcan finish is that if there is any moisture on the clubhead, it will start to rust. Also, over time the Oilcan finish will wear away, leaving you with a raw wedge.
    Ive got a 56* oilcan Vokey and I dont like it. The club works great and spins the heck out of the ball, but I hate the way the Oilcan finish looks. Seriously, the club looks like I found it on the bottom of a lake or at a yard sale. Ive hate to spend $125 on a club and have it look like some POS.
    I much prefer chrome because it always looks good and the chrome finish is an added protective layer. Oilcan or raw wedges will wear out quicker because they dont have that protective layer. Some people say that the chrome blinds them on open-face shots, but as of yet I havent had that problem.
