Wedges are often a unique part of every golfer’s bag. To cater to the diverse requirements and preferences, golf companies have greatly expanded offerings in the category, with the latest addition coming in the form of Cleveland’s RTX Full-Face.
Renowned for its wedges since entering the club manufacturing business, Cleveland’s latest model is an expansion of sorts of the recently released RTX ZipCore. Extending the grooves across the entire surface area of the face and tweaking the shape of the wedge for greater versatility and to inspire confidence.
“The new RTX Full-Face maintains the traditional and striking clean look that golfers have come to expect from a Cleveland wedge, all while adding shot making creativity with grooves across the entire face,” General Manager at Cleveland Golf Ryan Polanco said. “It’s the perfect complement to the classic RTX ZipCore and delivers exceptional versatility around the greens.”
Featuring the same ‘ZipCore’ technology as the standard RTX model, the RTX Full-Face incorporates a low-density core in the middle of the head, which allows for optimal centre of gravity (CG) placement and increased moment of inertia (MOI) higher and lower on face to create more shots struck on the centre of face.
Despite the increase in centre strikes delivering more consistent spin, flight, feel and distance control, for shots not hit out of the middle the ‘UltiZip’ grooves across the hitting area ensure more spin and improved greenside performance.
The grooves are deeper and sharper than previous iterations and heat treated for greater durability, and those found in the toe area will come into play on shots played with an open clubface that are regularly struck in the high toe and carry less spin.
Similarly designed to assist with open face shots, such as those played out of bunkers or from long rough around the greens, the new high toe profile inspires confidence at address while attempting to maintain a classic wedge look.
Offered in a Tour Satin finish in lofts from 50˚-60˚, as well as a 64˚ option, the RTX Full-Face will be available around Australia beginning May 21.
