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.

Have you ever bought the same club twice? – GolfWRXers discuss

Published

on

In our forums, our members have been talking about occasions they have purchased a club for the second time.

WRXer ‘Stimpmeter3’ is tempted to pull the trigger on a fairway wood he once owned and has reached out to members for their experiences on doing similar, with more having bought the same club twice than you may have thought!

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.

  • phizzy30: “I’ve done it once. I fell in love with the FT-9 TA back in the day and had to have a backup. I ended up gaming both. They were both 9* but one had the DI, the other had the Motore Speeder TS.”
  • pheenomz4774: “iBlades. Bought them three times in the 7 years they’ve been around. If I can find another set in great condition, it’ll be four times.”
  • Doucer: “Sold a 2014 Scotty Fastback to a guy on Kijiji. Regretted it as soon as I sold it. Searched for a couple of years to find another one and found one listed on Kijiji. It was the same guy, so I bought it back. Cost me $100 more!”
  • jwadds19: “Sold my set of MP57s to a former boss a number of years ago, then bought the exact set back (unknowingly at the time) from his son last year.”
