Cavity Back Wedges
I've been looking at the CBX2s from Cleveland because I play 3 shorter public courses and find myself hitting a lot of full wedges on quite a few Par 3s and some Par 4s, so I'm interested in some more forgiveness over feel. I don't usually find myself needing to get up and down from tighter lies or pull off shots around the green where more of a blade wedge would be beneifical. I'm not buying what Cleveland is selling with their marketing pitch that people who play a cavity back iron should be playing a cavity back wedge, but for peole like me it seems like it makes sense. I'm wondering if I'm in the minority given the ratio of cavity back offerings to more muscle back traditional wedges though, but how much of a minority. I see a lot of players with SGI/GI irons and they perform well for them, and then they have really low bounce and specialized grinds on their wedges, and they struggle with them, sometimes even on partial fairway shots and around the green. Noticed this while caddying and playing. Is Cleveland onto something or is it too much of a niche market that isn't really underserved? I know there have been some CB wedge offerings in the past, but they never really caught on from a mass marketing perspective. Every wedge review from the last year or so have one cavity back (the CBX) and half a dozen MB wedges. Anyone have any thoughts on how much CB wedges have helped them if they've put them in play? I'm really baffled by the lack of CB wedge offerings and really don't see that I have much of a choice outside of the CBX line. I know Clevelend has a CB version of the RTX but I haven't found many other mainstream options.
