How is the sole/turf interaction? The grind scares me since my miss is fat. Thanks

I like the grind. I am more of a sweeper on chips and short pitches --virtually no divot so i get and occasional fatty......Did not have an issue with the turf interaction.  Really good on square chips.  Can open them up.  Just a tad too large for my eyes which is why mine are on BST....  Went to Vokey V grind because i liked the Cleveland grind that much.

I have been playing the CBX 56 a d 52 since October 15th (I'm a 13.7 and with a better short than long game) and my miss is more fat than thin. I love these wedges and have no issues with turf interaction whatsoever. They are ridiculously accurate and forgiving as hell , helping me hit the 80s far more consistently. I was afraid to open up the 56 after reading the reviews. It ventured out and now am totally comfortable opening the face and flopping around the green. Other than my Ping G30, these are the best purchase I've made, hands down. I never hit the 52 well, but the CBX 52 has me pointing and shooting from 112 yards. No matter how ugly people think they are, I'm.never going back (and I loved my RTX 3s). For what it's worth the CBX is nothing like the RTX-3 except in face grooves.

I'm a lower cap (2.3) and I'm loving these wedges.  I think they look good behind the ball and promote confidence, but that is all personal preference.
I play the Srixon 565's 3-9 and CBX wedges, 44 deg, 49 deg, 54 deg, 58 deg.

A few rounds in and I really really like them.

It would seem that if your miss is fat, that the sole design would help you.  Unless you've determined that a low "effective bounce" is what works for you.  For most, this would not be the case

I am one of the Cleveland Golf / Golf WRX testers and I have been able to put my CBX 56* wedge through its paces. I was so happy with the wedge that I bought a 50* wedge to go along with it. I have found both of these Cleveland CBX wedges to be a valuable asset to my bag. They handle everything that you throw at it and do a fantastic job. In my estimation these are a great wedge for the masses who struggle with their short game. Easy to hit and gets the ball to the hole. I have chipped in with both wedges and scored better than I really expected to. They are very good in the sand and also from green side turf. Also a great shot from 90 yards and in. Frame the ball really well. All in all I feel very comfortable with these wedges in any application on the course. My guess is most really low HC players would like to see a smaller wedge, but for me these are money. Give them a try.

I have been playing A 54/56 combo of Scratch 8620 wedges for quite a while. The grooves are worn out.
I liked the look and feel of the CBX. They were fine for my short game; however, for me they ballooned
badly on full shots. Felt great,but the ball flight was a moon ball. Obviously not good for me,but if you have any issues getting the ball in the air, highly reccommended.

They couldn't possibly be as ugly as a Ping Eye2....and we all know how popular those have been.  Even guys on tour who used blade irons, have used them

The CBX is a great short game option. It  works really well in soft conditions  and gives good results on fat shots. I don't  like it as much on tight lies in hard conditions  but the shots are still serviceable. I use it quite a bit.
