Hi everyone, we’ve got a new release from Cleveland that’s bound to get wedge fans salivating. Here’s our first look at the new ROTEX technology, used on the RTX Wedges. We’ve got some snippets from the press release, a video explaining the new tech, and pictures of the new wedges below.
Here’s what Cleveland has to say about these wedges:
-16% Larger Grooves. Through more precise manufacturing, these U-Grooves are 16% larger than previous Tour Zip Grooves® to promote cleaner contact and maximize spin on critical scoring shots.
-Rougher, More Durable Laser Milling. Advanced surface roughness technology is now more durable and dimensionally optimized for even more friction at impact.
-ROTEX Face Pattern. Directionally milled face pattern adds roughness and imparts maximum spin, especially on open-face wedge shots where impact tends to be closer to the toe.
-Wedge Cavity Back. An undercut cavity promotes perimeter weighting for more forgiveness on off-center hits.
-Reverse C Sole. Inspired by Cleveland Golf’s popular CG14 and CG16 wedges, this wide, constant-width sole combines heel and toe grinds to improve performance from bunkers and deep rough.
588® RTX CB wedges come in eight different lofts (46°-60°) with standard bounce in both Satin Chrome and Black Pearl finishes. Minimum advertised price (MAP) is $119.99. Women’s version is available.
