Cleveland Golf unveils new RTX Full-Face wedges

Published

on

Cleveland Golf has introduced its new RTX Full-Face wedge, which will hit retail on June 11.

The foundation of RTX Full-Face is a unique, low-density core that sits at the heart of the wedge. The ZipCore shifts the center of gravity while raising MOI in design to provide spin, enhanced control, and added consistency.

Also, a new heat treatment process increases ZipCore’s durability in a bid to deliver better performance over a more extended period.

Speaking on the new wedges, Ryan Polanco, General Manager at Cleveland Golf, said

“The new RTX Full-Face maintains the traditional and striking clean look that golfers have come to expect from a Cleveland wedge, all while adding shotmaking creativity with grooves across the entire face. It’s the perfect complement to the classic RTX ZipCore and delivers exceptional versatility around the greens.”

Cleveland’s new wedges feature UltiZip Grooves, which, per the company, are sharper, deeper, and closer together than predecessors and are designed for more groove contact on every shot. 

The hosel-to-toe groove pattern also covers every millimeter of the face in UltiZip Grooves allowing players to hit it off the toe without sacrificing spin.

In addition, the High-Toe profile is designed to let golfers open the face with confidence, with the wedges offering a classic silhouette address.

Reason not to play multiple hybrids? – GolfWRXers discuss

Published

on

In our forums, our members have been discussing whether players should have a variety of hybrids in the bag. WRXer ‘Jetandollie’ kicks off the thread asking is there a reason not to play multiple hybrids and wonders whether we’ll get to a point where a 6-iron is the shortest iron in the bag for a player:

“Now that companies (Ping, PXG, Mizuno, Titleist) are making hybrids up to 28-34* with several shaft options is there a reason that the majority of us should not be playing them to as high a loft as we can find? 

All of the review videos and numbers always show that they go higher, land at a steeper descent angle and are significantly more forgiving and consistent than irons. 

I get that the main point of rebuttal is too high of a ball flight and playing in a windy location, but over the course of 60-80 rounds per year (1500-2000 long/midiron shots) will the shots saved from the forgiveness and higher launch/steeper decent not outweigh the iron mishits or shots lost in the wind? 

Will we get to the point with the way tech in clubs is progressing that the norm will be hybrids to the 6 or 7 iron in most bags?”

And our members have been weighing in on the topic 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.

  • MPAndreassi: “Cleveland has been trying to do this for at least a decade now. I don’t think it’ll ever catch on.”
  • cpang05: “Price. For the average guy I see at the muni, starting with a 4H, 5H, then 6i seems really popular. But those hybrids are half the cost of a full set of irons.”
  • Clubhoe: “Workability. Will continue for as long as I’m able to hit them. Will go to utilities next, then hybrids after that.”
  • Mattm97: “I hit my irons better than hybrid. I think it depends on the person, their game and usage. I have a 3H, and I honestly don’t use it a ton except for certain situations.”
