From Golf Magazine (ClubTest, May 2008)
We tested: 46°/6° (loft/bounce), 48°/6°, 50°/8°, 52°/10°, 54°/12°, 56°/14°, 58°/12° and 60°/12° in Traction steel shaft
Company line: "This clubhead combines 'Gelback' technology for exceptional feel and 'zip grooves' for increased spin and control. Our proprietary 'Traction' wedge shaft improves overall performance and increases feel around the green."
Our Test Panel Says:
PROS: A real weapon from the bunker, you can be aggressive and still control distance from the sand; the orange insert takes the edge off of poor contact without affecting the pure feeling of center contact; easy to play a high lob shot; top-notch performers from rough; cavity and insert seem to make it more forgiving than many previous Cleveland models.
CONS: To some, the viscoelastic insert dampens feel too much, limiting feedback; the insert detracts from overall look.
"Great weapons from 50 yards and in." — Victor DeMarco
