Cleveland Golf unveils latest wedge: The RTX ZipCore

Published

on

Cleveland RTX ZipCore

Cleveland Golf has launched its newest addition to its wedge family: the Cleveland RTX ZipCore, which features a unique, low-density core that sits at the heart of the wedge.

The ZipCore shifts the center of gravity, while also boosting High-Low MOI in a bid for added stability high and low on the wedge face. The new structure also puts more impact on the sweet spot in design to provide more consistent spin, distance and feel.

The RTX ZipCore wedges also feature the brand’s all-new UltiZip Grooves. Per the company, the UltiZip Grooves are 11% sharper and 7.3% deeper than previous generations, while also being 7.4% closer together for more groove contact area.

The combination of these factors aims to generate increased spin and consistent spin performance from all course conditions.

Speaking on the new wedges, Jeff Brunski, Vice President of Research and Development at Cleveland Golf stated

“The new RTX ZipCore is a technological leap forward for Cleveland wedges. We’ve inserted a low-density core inside the clubhead, allowing us to create a wedge with unprecedented consistency and exceptional feel. They also feature our tour-proven grinds and most aggressive groove technology to date–all packaged in a sleek yet traditional design.”

The RTX ZipCore features a new heat treatment designed to boost durability and maintain spin performance over a long period and arrive in a Tour Satin finish.

    Love the look but I’m not sure why. Also, no xlow grinds?

    Glad to see them getting away from the huge cavity back wedges they pushed the last 3 years…

      Those aren’t going anywhere. This is just the replacement for the RTX4

    Loved the RX4 with TIS400 as standard. Interesting choice with the spinner.

      Love spinner shafts in my Bridgestone J15 wedges. Did a search and couldn’t find this new shaft. Guessing it’s a new release tbd.

      Will be trying out these new wedges later in the year. Intrigued by the tech and return of 588 shape

      It’s a brand new shaft. Apparently nothing like the old DG Spinner.

Member Armyflyer23 – Mizuno JPX921 Tour irons

Built for precision and stability, the Mizuno JPX921 Tours are a beautiful single piece forged iron, that offers the looks you love, with the stability you need. This set is almost new and is a great deal if you are looking for a new set of flag hunting irons.

Member ajones35 – Linksoul carry bag

Are you a Linksoul-dier? This lightweight carry bag is a great way to get around the course with a minimalist design to hold your essentials and nothing more.

Member Tannerdc – Rare long neck Toulon putter

If you love blade style putters but need something with less toe-hang, then a longneck is the way to go. The only thing is longneck putters aren’t as common as they used to be, which makes this custom Toulon Garage a very interesting piece indeed.

What GolfWRXers are saying about using a 54-degree wedge for all short game duty

Published

on

In our forums, our members have been discussing the strategy of using a 54-degree wedge for all short game duty. WRXer ‘RoyalMustang’ says on the plan:

“My thinking is that time would be better spent learning to do all of the shots with a single wedge, rather than learning 2 wedge distances and feels with the limited practice time I have.”

And our members have been having their say on the subject 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.

  • OsnolaKinnard: “I have a 50* GW that is really like an 11 iron. My 54* wedge does pretty much everything around greens and inside of 50 yards except bunkers. The 58* lobber is my ‘sand wedge’.”
  • mizunotpz: “The 54 degree is really versatile. As long as you have a grind that is easy to open up. I use 50/54/58. I can hit full shots with my 50, but I never do that with the 54 or 58. That’s 80% shots tops. Most bunkers I use the 54, think its easier to control distance with a 54 vs a 58.”
  • Munich77: “I have a PW, 54, and 60. The 54 could be all I need as I use it the most.”
  • Minarets: “My 54 degree is my go-to unless the 60° is needed for some kind of flop. I use a 50, 54, 60-degree setup but feel most comfy with the 54.”

Entire Thread: “Using a 54-degree wedge for all short game duty.”
