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.

‘Did one length irons ruin my game?’ – GolfWRXers discuss

Published

on

single length irons

In our forums, our members have been reacting to a post from WRXer ‘Alj92’, who is wondering whether switching to one length irons has ruined his game. Alj92 says:

“I played one length irons (King F9) all last season – about 80 rounds. In 20 years of golf I’ve never hit it better, even when I played well as a kid. 

Because I could not find left handed wedges (anything above 48*) or a 4/5i (anything less than 23*), I sold them at the end of last season. 

This year I switched to ping g425’s. Complete confidence, consistency and launch over the 6-7-8. Smash them. But I am struggling immensely with the 4/5 and 9-LW. Long irons thin weak slices, short irons strong pulls. Nowhere close with alignment. 

Did I kill my swing with the one length irons last season? Is that…possible, or does it make sense? Or is this just an expensive validation that I am a prime candidate for one length?”

Our members have been giving their take on the post in our forums.

Here are a few posts from the thread, but make sure to check out the entire discussion and have your say at the link below.

  • lefthack: “Maybe just use traditional wedges with one length irons?”
  • GatorNate11: “If I had to guess, your brain/body have probably just adjusted to that length. Give it some time, maybe get a couple of lessons in, and I’m sure you’ll find it again. Unless you made some sort of wild change in your swing with or without realizing it, it’s probably just a feel/visual thing tbh.”
  • Fairway14: “Buy yourself a set of one length irons and wedges.”
