Cleveland Golf has introduced its stunning new RTX ZipCore wedge that will hit stores across Europe in September 2020, and as expected, it's an absolute beaut.

RTX ZipCore is both radically new and ultra-familiar. On the inside, its new core has unlocked design freedoms pushing the performance beyond any wedge in Cleveland Golf's history. Yet on the outside, the sleek yet traditional design is familiar and inspires confidence at address.
"Cleveland wedges are always just beautiful looking clubs, and this one is no different," said 2019 Open champion Shane Lowry.
"They're very traditional and I just love them. You need to be able to trust what your wedges are going to do, and RTX ZipCore does everything I need it to. I couldn't ask for anything else in a wedge."
The foundation of RTX ZipCore is a unique, low-density core that sits at the heart of the wedge.
ZipCore makes you better by shifting the centre of gravity, while boosting the MOI for more stability high and low on the wedge face.
The result is that ZipCore puts more impact on the sweet spot for more consistent spin, distance and feel on every shot.
RTX ZipCore also features Cleveland Golf's new UltiZip Grooves. Compared to previous generations, UltiZip Grooves are 11% sharper and 7.3% deeper, while also being 7.4% closer together for more groove contact area.
The combination and optimisation of these factors ensure that the RTX ZipCore generates increased spin and consistent spin performance from any condition on the course.
To preserve the lifespan of these grooves, RTX ZipCore also utilises a new heat treatment to boost durability and maintain spin performance round after round.
"The new RTX ZipCore is a technological leap forward for Cleveland wedges," said Cleveland Golf's Vice President of R&D, Jeff Brunski.
"We've inserted a low-density core inside the clubhead, allowing us to create a wedge with unprecedented consistency and expcetional feel.
"They also feature our Tour-proven grinds and most aggressive groove technology to date - all packaged in a sleek yet traditional design."
RTX ZipCore wedges come standard with new True Temper Dynamic Gold Spinner Tour Issue shafts and Golf Pride's popular Tour Velvet 360 grips.
The wedges are offered in a wide variety of lofts and sole grinds. The MID sole grind comes in 46 through to 60 degrees, the LOW Sole grind is offered in 56 through to 62 degrees, and the FULL Sole grind is available in 54 through to 60 degrees.
They will be available in a Tour Satin finish, with additional finishes coming later in the year.
