Any single digit guys playing Cleveland CBX2 wedges?

I got to thinking about my lost 5-7 yds I'm seeing.  My new "PW" is 44* and + 1/2" with KBS Tour V, SW D5.  I was comparing the 48/52* CBX2 with the stock DG 115 at stock length and wasn't seeing the distance gapping I was hoping for.  Also SW was lighter about 3 SW points with the CBX2s. 

 

Just last night installed some KBS 610 Wedge S and cut them to same length as PW and adjusted SW to same in all 3 (D5).  Also have all 3 bent to same lie (66* - 2 flat) and put same grips (midsize Gripmaster Roos) on the CBX2s.  Now they all 3 should be about the same "specs", other than actual head design and lofts.  Will see what this does for my gapping.  

 

If the weather holds I'm playing 36 Fri and Sat and 18 Sun, so should have 90 holes in with them by next Monday and can report back with results.  (I'm playing to around a 6hc).

 

Did you happen to weigh the CBX2 head? 

 

This will be my first time putting together irons (I've done a number of graphite 3w/Dr shafts) when I install the 610's. What is the best way to adjust weight?

I have a cbx2 in a 50*. I really like it. I was going to get 2 more in 54 and 58 but only had $200 more dollars to spend on golf and decided on purchasing best grips, but they will def be my next purc

I am definitely a believer. Tried it on a whim at a PGA SuperStore in FL last fall and was stunned by the consistency of it. Changed from a RTX3 to the CBX2 in my 52* gap within a couple of weeks.

OG CBX here in 54 and 60. Like others are saying, don't sleep on CBX/CBX2 if you're low cap. Most seem to see CBX more for a gap or sand wedge to transition from CB irons. For me the 60 has been th

Sorry, I did not weigh them.  I was doing this at my apartment away from my home workshop, and did not have my kitchen scale with me, just my SW scale, some epoxy, a few various tip weights,  some grip tape/solvent, and a few various other odds and ends. 

 

I wanted them to be the same length and SW (or a little higher) as the New Level PW, so I put that on the SW scale to get a measurement, then cut shafts to length and dry fit everything using a split grip to get as close as I could.  I ended up using a 6g brass tip weight in both.  The 52* came out a little heavier, but I didn't mind - I like the SW to increase a little on the more lofted wedges I'll tend to use for partial shots and around the green.

Currently play 50/54/60 SM6 vokeys.  After having one too many awful wedge approach days after striping driver/3 wood off the tee I decided I needed a change.  Yes I know its me not the club but I figured just looking down at something different would help,  Bought a CBX2 56 deg in black finish.  Hit balls and chipped/pitched a few this AM,  Have to say I am impressed.   Looks great at address, surprisingly nice softish feel and the grind bounce worked really well both in the rough and tighter fairway lies.   Will see how it performs on the course and what its like out of the sand but if its still good I can see myself getting a full set of these.

Forgot to mention - a few years back I tried the original CBXs and they really did not work.  Did not like the feel and the turf interaction.  This 56 CBX2 is much superior and really like the black finish.

I’m not a low capper by any means, but I’ve been playing to an 8 the last several seasons.  About 3 years ago I got a set of the OG CBX wedges and my short game really improved with them.  Nothing fancy about my playing - mostly chips and pitches, the rare flop.  I could execute the basics with the CBXs and they worked for me.

 

I got an inflated head about it and the next season I thought I’d “upgrade” out of those game improvement shovels and got a set of RTX-4s.  My short game was never the same with them.  The harder I tried with the RTXs, the worse my short game got. I was all over the place.

 

Last season I ditched the RTXs and got a set of CBX-2s in 50/54/58.  My short game slowly came back.  I’m sticking with them.  I like them so much that I bought a pair of OG CBX in 50/56 for my practice bag.  I know they’re not for everyone, but they work for me and I feel confident standing over them.
