GolfMagic's equipment specialist Alex Lodge took these new wedges (in their stunning black finish) for a spin at Knole Park Golf Club in Sevenoaks, and after his session revealed that these are his favourite new wedges currently on the market...
KEY FEATURES & BENEFITS:
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.
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.
WHAT GOLFMAGIC SAYS:
The best new feeling wedges on the market and they offer tons of confidence at address.
From within 10 yards, this wedge felt impossible to strike badly on chip and run shots. When playing cut spin shots, they again felt really easy to play and spun a lot.
On 25-yard shots, the club really slides under the ball nicely, and you start to notice a lovely buttery feel on all types of chip shots.
On 60-yard shots, this wedge really comes into its own, and it's incredibly versatile. You can play all sorts of sort with this one whether that be a delicate flop shot or a bump-and-run. You just receive so much confidence with this club time and time again.
They offer terrific value for money at £139 for the Tour Satin and Black Satin finishes, and at £159 in the Tour Rack (RAW) model.
These wedges are also suited to all types of golfer, whether you're a low single or a high handicapper. We could not be more impressed with these wedges, and we know you will love them to.
