    Not sure how much of you can pick up with my phone pics. They come in with sort of a honey finish, which isn't bad, but you should be able to see on mine that it didn't last very long.

    Just ordered a satin 46/Mid to match the rest of my irons. We'll see how it stacks up against the SM7 which has been really solid so far this year. I definitely will not be replacing my 58°D SM7 until the grooves wear out but I really prefer having a blade PW that matches the rest of my irons.

    I have the CBX 48* bent to 49 and the same in the RTX4. It really depends on what you are looking for in a wedge. I use my GW for a ton of full shots and lots of bump and run chips. I generally don't get too creative with opening and shutting the face on the GW. So for me, the CBX is the winner. It is significantly thicker topline and larger all around. It is definitely a large club. The CBX is significantly more forgiving. Due to the forgiveness I tend to have more consistent distances and predictable spin. If you want a blade wedge for whatever reason... the CBX is definitely not going to be the route you want to take. If you're looking for a forgiving wedge, the CBX is it. I'd be happy to answer more specific questions if you have any.

    If the mid bounce is the same as the 2.0 2 dot then I’ll be buying a set of these, but it looks like a V grind. I only hit maybe three balls with the RTX 3 so I didn’t really get a feel for it. I didn’t like the shape so I was never going to buy them.

    52 I agree

    but 56 I am really considering rtx4

    60 definitely rtx4



    would i have to get a 54rtx4 to compete distance wise with the 56 cbx?

    Distance wise? I think it depends on how well you hit your 56. If you make good contact than a 56 will be fine for distance. When I get to the SW I'm mostly concerned with how much I can manipulate the face, ball trajectory, and spin.

    I have a 46 mid bent to 50 a 52 mid bent to 54 and a 58 full bent to 59. I like the extra bounce and less offset. So far so good.

    The bounce options make me sad. Higher = better ...




    You obviously know your game much better than I, so YMMV. However, I used to play ALL high bounce wedges. I'm really liking the xlow 58*. Don't discount the mids or lows until youve tried them.




    +1 - I have been struggling this year with my higher bounce wedges so I bought a 58 X-Low bounce this weekend. Haven't owned a Cleveland wedge in a decade. Went to our short game area this afternoon for a quick test. Initial thoughts are very positive. Great from the sand and easy on chips and pitches. My course conditions are typically firm, including the sand. I was really impressed with the spin on all the shots I tried; possibly the grippiest wedge I have played/tested...ever. Looking forward to getting the wedge on the course and seeing how something with so little bounce performs when keeping score.

    So I decided to order a couple of the dark finish. Different grip. Fine. Modus shaft. No problem and no upcharge. 2 degrees flat please. Er that will be a no. Lies cannot be adjusted by Cleveland UK. They will alter the satin but not the other finishes. I am assuming they use heat to move the heads instead of a loft and lie machine?

    I took my RTX4 58*-low bounce to the range yesterday and effortlessly made this line of perfect-depth divots. You can't do this with most retail wedges. It's not the best out of the sand, but around the greens at my course, it's gonna be money.

    Got a 46° PW and its profile blends so smoothly from my z745s that it looks like it's part of the set. Used it Monday and on hard greens, the ball danced. The performance of this thing is awesome.

    I've been playing the 52 mid, 56 mid, and 60 low since September. Yeah, they're definitely worth the wait. IMO, the best Cleveland wedges in a long, long time.

    Those would’ve been perfect for me! Did you see those options in early pics?

    I ended up with 56 full bent to 55 and 60 low, but may order a 60 full and grind some bounce off.
