    Supposedly Cleveland will offer custom hand grinding for the wedges as well so you may be able to get whatever you want.

    These remind me of the back of a p790. I dont mind at all. I wish the raw was coming out with the initial release. I really want new wedges, and I want the raw, but I dont want to wait longer than the initial release date.

    I'll have to come back after I watch all these YouTube videos. I can say that as a digger, I still love the xlow. I only use my LW for chips around the greens, or out of the sand, and I never use it for full shots (unless I'm trying some stupid flop shot). I should have no business with an xlow, but it works magic for what I use it for. I'll be missing that.

    The more I think about it, the more I think I'll end up with a set of satin from the first release, and then raw from whenever those release...

    I agree, I don’t know if it’s as much of an ego play as it is just pure misunderstanding of bounce itself, just because you play at dry hot Arizona courses does NOT mean that an extremely low bounce wedge is the best option. 3 degrees of bounce is outrageous. 8 degrees will work just fine in those conditions and will give you a little more versatility.

    Interesting tech, and seems to be completely opposite to what Vokey is doing with the SM8s in terms of CG placement. Very curious.

    I'll have you know, I write that score with a custom forged pencil hand shaved by Mr. Palomino himself. It makes my 96 so crisp and easy to read it could be mistaken for a 69.

    Also, I will definitely give these wedges a look... Seems like they might have some actual performance upgrades over "traditional" wedges... I currently game the SM6s because I bought them this year cheap and like the various bounce and grind options... it's the one thing the smaller manufacturers can't really compete on. I've been in Vokey's for a few years... might be time to switch back to Clevelands.

    It could be a plan to spread sales over multiple quarters. I agree, no reason not to release all finishes at the same time.

    despite the numerous requests for raw here, I have to imagine the best seller is the satin/chrome as well. get the best seller to market first.

    I did hear that the raw heads are tour stock. I think that is the reason. They want to make sure the tour guys get first dibs then they will release to the gen pop.

    They are starting a hand ground program as well similar to wedge works.

    Great news! You can have them custom grind the tour raw wedges, so really, there’s no reason you can’t have a custom X Low wedge !!

    TXG did a video on the wedges today (sorry if it was mentioned as I didn’t go back and look) and Ian and Matt were both really impressed with the spin and the different options they had. Looks interesting and I might finally put Cleveland back in play after years of not having them anymore.

    I agree branding is hard to look at, but If they perform I'm in.

    Willing to bet if people hit it well most wouldn’t even notice. Plus it’s like when people say they don’t like the look of the bottom of the driver. Then only complain about how a club looks at address. When you are setting up for a shot, you will not see the branding at all. If it performs, I can certainly overlook it.

    With custom paint fill offered the extra Zipcore line gives the consumer another option and value add. Doesn’t bother me at all.

    From what I have heard the these have a bit straighter leading edge and slight adjustments to the lines.

    These look great to me. Don’t care about the writing. It is to the point. But I am so impressed with the RTX4 that these are worth checking out. I like the shape. I like how low my RTX4’s leading edge sits. I bet these are similar. Between the hidden tech in these blade wedges and the bigtime help in the CBX2, Cleveland has got a very appealing lineup.
