Yes, I have a 60 low bounce and there is very little if any offset.  I will try and get pics today of how much rush is coming in.  I have not tried to accelerate the rust at all. Just one morning dew round and that was all it needed.

I’m currently using a mid bounce 58 rtx3 and have been really missing my previous 58, which was a Vokey L grind with 4 degrees of bounce. I never use my LW for full shots, mostly just around the green and usually play in dry, tight conditions. I really miss how the leading edge of the low bounce Vokey stayed very close to the ground at address.

So with that being said, I want to pick up an RTX4 58/60, but can’t decide if I should choose low or xlow grind.

Does anyone know if there is much difference between those two grinds? Specifically, how close the leading edge is to the ground on tight lies and how the leading edge looks at address (straight/rounded).

Thanks in advance!

I’m coming from MD4s, anyone having trouble getting used to the way lower leading edge of the RTX-4s?

Saw Crossfiled posted a “review” of these today. Kinda cool to try something before the YT personalities get it...lol.

Been playing weekly with my 54/10 mid. I still love it and the comments I made in my reviews still apply. IMO the finish has held up well. I don’t see rust yet. I’ll post a few pics soon.

Interesting that all of the mid bounce RTX-4ís Iíve seen in the stores have 10 degrees of bounce. Iím coming from a Cleveland wedge with 12 degrees, which seems to have been the prior standard mid bounce option. Will that 2 degree difference make a difference in playability, or is it negligible?  I play in Florida, so play off of a lot of tight, sandy lies around the green, and in the past Iíve needed the bounce to help off those lies.  Curious is anyone has any thoughts on this.

And thats a GOOD thing.

No idea why they even make finishes besides rust.
