Anyone have feedback on the 2.0cb rtx wedges? How is distance compared to vokey and others? I heard spin is good but do they have the right grinds to open up for versatility and flops on tight lies?

Anyone gaming these? What is the feedback with the larger head and more bounce around the green and on flops? Does it still perform and is it good from different lies?

The larger head hasnít impacted my use around the greens. I do have the single dot (lowest bounce) versions though. The grind is perfectly versatile out of different lies and bunker types. I frequently play pitches with the face opened up and have never had an issue.

thank you mine is the two dot Version and already has a lot of bounce so what I noticed is that it sits higher off the ground and my current wedge so I'm worried about firm tight lies trying to get underneath it for a flop shot

I think the difference between one and two dots is four degrees which is a good bit. If you find that there's too much bounce for playing the face open you may want to look for a single dot version.

I don't get their design, so the bounce is 12* on mine and 2-dot, does the bounce correlate to the dot, or is there a specific degree for each dot? Yeah I got a great deal on 3 wedges but the bounce may be too much for summer hard and tight lies to open and flop shots.

I've always been a big fan of Cleveland wedges and have gamed quite a few.

I don't care for the larger head, but it is what it is.

Now my main concern, which aligns with yours, is that I haven't found one that I love in a LW, as I haven't found one, not even the lowest bounce, that's really that versatile. I game a 58* from Scratch and I can lay it flat and the leading edge still stays relatively low, but my 58* RTX3 does not do the same.

Would it impact my game a ton? Probably not, as I don't find myself needing 110* of loft too often, but I'm sticking with what I know I can lay open on a tight lie and not worry so much about crushing it 10' off the ground 150 yards over the green.. lol
What's actually in the bag...

The dots correspond to a different bounce depending on loft. You can go here https://www.2ndswing...cb-black-satin/ and click on "specs" to see the chart.
