Forgiving wedges? – GolfWRXers discuss

Published

on

In our forums, our members have been discussing wedge forgiveness. WRXer ‘SuperSpurs106’ is looking for wedges that offer more forgiveness than his Vokeys and reaches out to fellow members who have been sharing their takes in our forum, with Cleveland’s CBX Zipcore proving a popular choice.

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.

  • RobS: “Ping Glide 3.0 gives you some forgiveness in a traditional profile wedge, and they also give you some grind/bounce options. Great wedges.”
  • Red4282: “Forgiveness in wedges really doesn’t exist. Loft is the overriding factor. I mean, you could get a bigger wedge for more face area-would help with shanks. The other thing is just making sure you have correct sole grind and bounce for your swing and conditions.”
  • hammergolf: “Cleveland CBX Zipcore. Ping Glide 3.0/4.0.”
  • teedub21: “Just put a CBX Zipcore 56 into play. Had the original CBX that went in and out of my bag over the last couple of years. The CBX Zipcore looks smaller at address, feels better, is heavier (original CBX was on the light side), silly good out of the sand and easier to hit on full shots than my bladed wedges.”
  • Roejye: “Another vote for the CBX Zipcore here. I bought a 56°, and when I demoed it, it felt really good; I like the weight of it. It’s not a miracle worker; I did lose some distance on the fat shots. The thing I really liked though, the spin. I have never spun a ball back on course, and on the sim at the store I did. I know that spin will go down on the course, but it was nice to see that a few times.”
