Cleveland CBX2 Black Satin wedges: High performance, refined looks

Published

on

“Most golfers play cavity back irons, so why not bring that type of forgiveness to your short game?” has been Cleveland’s philosophy with their CBX2 wedges, and now you can get the same short game saving technology with an all-new sleeker look thanks to the introduction of the CBX2 Black Satin wedges.

“The Cleveland CBX wedge line has been a revolution for wedges. The new Cleveland CBX 2 has made the short game easier, and now golfers will have expanded options when choosing their wedges with the new black Satin release.”
Mike Powell, President of North America Sales and Marketing at Cleveland Golf.

Cleveland CBX 2 wedges: Technology

Hollow-Cavity Design: With a hollow chamber near the heel and a heavy weight placed in the toe, the hollow-cavity design maximizes MOI and perimeter weighting for maximum forgiveness around the entire face.

Feel Balancing and Gelback Technologies: Enhanced Feel Balancing Technology along with a Gelback TPU Insert reduces vibration for a pure feel at impact.

Rotex Face Technology: Fourth generation Rotex Face Technology delivers the company’s sharpest Tour Zip Grooves and most aggressive face milling. This improves spin in all conditions, especially on half shots, and around the green when mousture is present.

Dynamic Sole: Three specialized sole grinds options.

The new Cleveland Black Satin CBX2 wedges are available for pre-order starting today and fully launch in North America on December 18. They are priced at $139.99 for Steel – Dynamic Gold 115 wedge and $149.99 for Graphite – Cleveland Rotex wedge flex.

WITB Time Machine: Daniel Berger’s winning WITB, 2020 Charles Schwab Challenge

Published

on

At the 2020 Charles Schwab Challenge, Daniel Berger bested Collin Morikawa in a playoff, making four to the latter’s five at Colonial Country Club after the pair deadlocked at 15 under at the end of regulation.

After a three-month break, the tournament was the first of the Tour’s resumed season amid the Covid-19 pandemic. Berger saved par from off the green on the first playoff hole. Morikawa couldn’t convert a three-footer to par.

The victory was Daniel Berger’s third tour triumph.

Take a look at what “db_straitvibin” had in play four years ago.

Spotted: Adam Scott with new Miura iron setup

Published

on

Editor’s note: This is an excerpt from a piece our Andrew Tursky originally wrote for PGATour.com’s Equipment Report. Head over there for the full article.

The irons that Scott has in the bag this week are a mixed set of Miura CB-302 long irons and KM-700 mid-to-short irons (“KM” stands for company founder “Katsuhiro Miura”).

Although Scott has mostly been a traditional blade iron user throughout his veteran career, he’s opted for irons with slightly more forgiveness built into them in the last year.

To that point, Scott’s new KM-700 irons are actually one-piece forged designs, except they have a unique heel-toe design that pushes the center of gravity toward the heel of the club, and effectively expands the sweet spot to make them more forgiving. The irons also have a complex cavity design allowing optimal center of gravity and turf interaction.

The KM-700 irons strive to combine the looks and feel of a traditional blade iron, mixed with the modern complexity of high-tech and perimeter-weighted cavity-back irons.

Scott’s new irons include Miura’s red hanko stamping, which Miura calls its “stamp of approval,” plus Scott’s personal logo has been added to the back cavities, as well.

Although the irons are freshly in the bag this week, Scott’s player manager confirmed with GolfWRX.com on Tuesday that he first received the irons at the Miura headquarters in Japan while he was there for the 2023 Zozo Championship. He also briefly used the KM-700 short irons when he switched to them mid-event at the 2023 Wyndham Championship, but we haven’t seen them in his bag since the brief experiment.
