SPOTTED: Cleveland RTX 6 ZipCore Tour Rack wedges at the 2022 Shriners Children’s Open

Published

on

New golf equipment was showing up left and right on Monday at the 2022 Shriners Children’s Open at TPC Summerlin in Las Vegas.

In addition to launching new ZX7 MKII irons, Cleveland-Srixon also brought out new RTX 6 ZipCore Tour Rack wedges for PGA Tour players to test for the first time.

While we don’t yet have details on the new wedges yet, based on the overall aesthetics, nomenclature, and design of the wedge, it appears the new RTX 6 ZipCore Tour Rack wedges could be set to replace Cleveland’s previous RTX ZipCore models.

Speaking with GolfWRX recently, Cleveland Product Manager Casey Shultz explained what the former RTX ZipCore wedges were all about:

“RTX ZipCore is designed for the better player with a well-developed short game that can take advantage of the added versatility the line brings to improve their shot-making capabilities around the greens, while still experiencing added forgiveness and consistency over what can typically be found in a blade wedge.”

“RTX ZipCore is the first product we introduced with our ZipCore technology, a low-density material within the hosel that helps to shift the CG and raise MOI, adding spin, enhancing control, and boosting consistency all within a traditional blade style shape. This wedge also has the newest Rotex face design with the sharper, deeper, and closer UltiZip grooves for maximum spin performance. On top of this, a new heat treatment process has been added to ensure these grooves stay sharp and this spin continues round after round.”

While we don’t know exactly what the new “6” is referencing, it could possibly mean these wedges are the sixth edition of “RTX” wedges, since the Cleveland RTX 4 wedges came out in 2018, and the company followed those up with the RTX ZipCore wedges in 2020.

Also, Shultz briefly explained the continued benefits of the Tour Rack program:

“Tour testing and feedback has a big influence on the design of our wedges, especially when it comes to grind offerings and appearance at address. We constantly are making modifications to the grinds for tour players and take notes of what works and what doesn’t and work this feedback in to future designs as well as custom grinding options available in our Tour Rack program.”

It appears that Cleveland’s Tour Rack has helped produced a new offering of RTX 6 ZipCore wedges, which we spotted at the 2022 Shriners Children’s Open below.

      You know what they say…if you want a wedge that looks like a Vokey (pick your brand), buy a Vokey.

L.A.B. Golf introduces first run of all-new LINK.1 putter

Published

on

L.A.B Golf has recently introduced its all-new LINK.1 putter, with 500 individually serialized putters available now ahead of its full release in 2023.

To bring Lie Angle Balance to LINK.1, L.A.B. Golf hyper-engineered it from 303 Stainless Steel, with the new addition 100% CNC Milled with four screws on the heel side and six on the toe side to offer a wide range of length and lie angle options.

“We created LINK.1 for every golfer that loves the idea of using this timeless shape but doesn’t make enough putts with it. LINK.1 is better for the simple reason that it has Lie Angle Balance and will stay square by itself like all L.A.B. Golf putters. We couldn’t be more excited about this launch, which is why we wanted to offer a first run for our die-hard fans.” – L.A.B. Golf CEO Sam Hahn

The putters are 100% Made In the USA and built and balanced by L.A.B. Golf Craftsmen in L.A.B. Golf’s new factory in Creswell, Oregon.

500 LINK.1 first one putters ($750) are now available through labgolf.com. The putters are available for standard lengths (28-38 inches) and lie angles from 65-75 degrees, and golfers have the choice of two different siteline options: a dot on the top line of the putter or a line in the cavity.
