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.

I have not tested the Glide 3.0, however I have played Ping wedges for a very long time. (Tour s) But I think the sole of the cbx2 is more forgiving. It would a great test for someone to do.

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.
