Greetings!  Thanks for taking the time to talk to GolfWRX about your new wedge tech.  I see that the new line continues with the Rotex Face Tech.  One of your competitors claims that these type of grooves wear down quickly and that we should be replacing our wedges every few months edit: 75 rounds depending on use.  Have you done similar testing?  Do you agree?

In regards to forgiveness, is there going to be a noticeable difference between the CBX line and the RTX-3 CB??  It doesn't seem like the looks will be that different, but would it be worth it to move from RTX to CBX

I currently game the RTX-3 and love them. I have noticed so many staffers on tour are refusing to go them or have left them and gone back to RTX 2.0.

What is the feedback you are getting from the pros and why no love? I only ask because I think they are fantastic.

I use my 60 degree wedge (blade wedge) for chipping and pitching mainly as I seem to thin it a lot if I try to hit a full shot. My question is, on such small swings, would the added forgiveness really even matter enough for me to consider the CBX (which I like to look at less) over a blade like the RTX-3?

Thanks, and also the Huntington Beach Putters are really good and the best value out there.

Hi there...

What is the primary performance difference between the RTX3 CB and the new CBX?  Is it a matter of increased MOI?  the weight pulled further back?  Larger sweet spot?  After watching crossfield's review, seems like the CG location is a bit different...but what other benefits are there in the design?

Cleveland's website allows for a lot of custom options.  How do you recommend players select a shaft for their wedges?  Should they match their irons, be slightly softer flex or is it just personal preference?  Thanks!

Why did you eliminate the choice of sole/"bounce" with the CBX wedge?  As someone the currently has a RTX-3 in my bag, a big plus was finding the correct sole for my attack angle.

I currently play the Srixon Z565 irons (4-PW)  and carry three Rotex 2.0 wedges (52*, 56*, and 60*).  As a blade wedge player, why should I consider making a change to the CBX?  What kind of performance differences would I expect to see?  Would using this wedge as a gap wedge be a good way to transition between cavity-backed longer irons and more traditional bladed wedges?

Are the cbx wedges designed mainly for pitches (full and half swings), or were they also designed for chip, bunker and flop shots?

Thanks for the time and opportunity.

My question is...

For the type of player these are geared for, what makes a player pick these over just buying the wedges to match the set?

I plan on purchasing a set of the new Cleveland HB irons 4-P. In regards to distance, forgiveness, and spin would CBX gap, sand, and  lob wedges blend well with the HB irons?

Thank you for the Q and A. My questions are these:

1. The cbx has a lighter-weight steel shaft which makes sense to match the lighter-weight shafts of game improvement irons. However, most other vendors recommend a heavier shaft in the wedge to reduce flipping. Obviously you have tested the shafts but have you seen similar results from misses?

2. I love my Srixon irons. Now that Cleveland is coming back to the states do you plan on eventually releasing a player style or will Srixon continue to be the player's side?

Why limit the bounce options?

Just because a "high cap" that might use these CB wedges should probably stick to a "stock shot" with each wedge, that doesn't mean that all players should use the same amount of bounce. AoA and conditions would play a huge factor even in those "stock" shots.

Thanks for the Q&A

Two questions from me:

What was your thought process in determining the stock sole grind for this club?

Are these wedges effective with heavy weight shafts?

My question is, i love cleveland looks but I always play vokey and currently nike for the grind options.

How would cleveland be able to add value or benefits through new grind options and turf interaction? Can you explain the benefits of your grind/bounce options and how a player looking for specific grind or bounces would benefit based on their playing conditions thank you!

P.s. the grind and not having knowledge on your product is the only deterrence in buying them as i love the looks. Thanks!

Thanks for joining us. Although I'm a lower handicap and probably not the target market, I love the looks of these wedges, particularly the more rounded leading edge and sight amount of offset. Beyond the apparent differences (cavity, etc.), can you touch on some of the more subtle design aspects that differentiate this from the RTX and other, player wedges on the market? Thank you.

Do you still recommend CBX for someone who doesn't use all of their wedges for full swings?  For example, my 60 is pretty much only used inside of 40 yards.  Would I be better served to go with the RTX 3.0 or can I still benefit from some of the features of the CBX?

Obviously Cleveland is known for their wedges and after Srixon decided to disband Cleveland irons due to market share, what do you believe has changed that can increase Cleveland's desirability?

Is the thought process to be a brand fully targeted to the average amateur or will Cleveland hope to have tour ambassadors using Drivers and Woods?

Srixon has struggled in the US with woods and hybrids specifically so it seems like this would be the perfect combination for Cleveland and Srixon.

I've seen the new CBX wedges in the store and noticed a wider sole.

1.  I shoot in the low to mid 90's, so a cavity back wedge would be helpful to me on full shots.  I've seen them in the store, and I like the look of them.  
Will that wider sole make it easier for me to get out of sand as well?  

2.  I love the look of the new Launcher CBX iron set in pictures, but I haven't seen them in my local shops just yet.
Cleveland website does not list what the stock shaft is.
Can you tell me about what shaft is being used in the new Cleveland Launcher CBX iron sets, such as brand of shaft, model of shaft, weight of shaft, flexpoint?

Thanks for taking the time to do this.

1) what playability feature sets this wedge apart from the previous larger/CB wedge lines like rtx and cg16/14?  

2) many larger/CB irons have vibration dampening inserts in the cavity - why none on the new wedges?
