Cleveland to launch new MyCustomWedges

Published

on

Cleveland is set to launch a new custom wedge website in late February that will allow golfers to customize the company’s newest line of wedges.

Cleveland’s “My Custom Wedges” site launched in 2013, and allowed golfers to personalize paint fills, stampings, finishes and skins of the 588 RTX Forged wedges to their liking. The new microsite will feature new grinds and customization options for the company’s new RTX Custom wedges, which use the same technologies as 588 RTX 2.0 wedges.

The wedges will be available in two finishes: raw, which will rust, and black satin, which won’t. The personalization system will also have more skins, paint colors, engraving options, logos and custom shaft options than the original MyCustomWedges website.

The new wedges will be available in 11 different models and lofts from 48-to-60 degrees. The 56- and 58-degree wedges have two grind options, standard and low bounce, while 60-degree wedges are available in the three grind options below:

  • Low bounce: Sole is 0.75 inches wide, 6 degrees of bounce
  • Standard: Sole is 0.75 inches wide, 12 degrees of bounce
  • Wide sole: One-inch wide, 8 degrees of bounce

The low-bounce grind is for golfers who play in firm conditions or have shallow angles of attack, while the wide-sole grind will work best for golfers who have steeper angles of attack or play in soft conditions. The standard sole grind takes the middle ground.

Even though it’s a niche-design, Cleveland’s wide-sole grind may prove to be the star of the line. According to Patrick Ripp, Research and Business Solutions Engineer for Cleveland, many golfers have found that wide-sole wedges can create more consistency around the greens.

The wide-sole grind was created with feedback from Cleveland Tour players, some of whom wanted a wider sole with more bounce, but still wanted the leading edge to sit close to the ground, especially on open-faced shots.

How do you know which grind is right for you?

Cleveland’s wedge analyzer, which works in conjunction with SwingByte, helps simplify the process for any golfer, and offers wedge recommendations based on a golfer’s angle of attack and typical course conditions.

Aside from the new wide-sole grind, most of the grinds and bounce options from Cleveland’s custom wedge line are available on the wedge analyzer.

    I wonder if Scratch Golf is going to be upset that Cleveland is ripping off their model?

    Much like coors light who uses gimmicks like lined cans and mountains that turn blue when cold, because they make an inferior product. If you want good wedges buy some vokeys

      Yeah, because Cleveland doesn’t have any legacy or tour presence at all when it comes to wedges..Practically a cocky newcomer. Riiight

        Cleveland doesn’t have a Legacy? Haha Im guessing you think Cleveland copied Vokey too huh? Finding educated comments on this site is becoming rarer everyday.
