Cleveland CG15 Wedges
From Golf Magazine (ClubTest, April 2010)
We tested: 48° loft/8° bounce, 52°/10°, 56°/10°, 56°/14°, 56°/16°, 60°/12°, 64°/12° with Traction steel shaft
Company line: "This wedge has a precision 'laser milled' face texture to maximize surface roughness and spin. Coupled with 'zip grooves,' the CG15 has the best and most effective spin technology ever developed by us."
Our Testers say:
PROS: One of the top-rated wedges; the ball seems to cling to the face— what a great feeling; quite handsome; clubhead squares up perfectly at address; heavyish head excels out of the bunkers, the club keeps moving; this stick could suit players of all ability; very satisfying, flushed impact feel; extreme stability through impact; strong performer in all conditions.
CONS: A little shorter distance-wise than expected; heavyish head is almost too much so for a minority of testers.
From Sports Illustrated Golf+ Equipment Issue (February 8, 2010)
Boo Weekley talks CG15 wedges: "With those laser-milled faces on these CG15 wedges, y'all will see more spin than my reel does pullin' in a 20-pound bass!"
From Golf Magazine (January 2010)
The CG15 has the firm's "zip grooves," plus a laser-milled clubface treatment that provides rough texture between each groove. This combination creates maximum spin under the Rules of Golf. The "S-shaped" sole is slightly narrower in the heel and offers plenty of toe relief. CG15 comes in three finishes: Satin chrome, "Oil Quench" or Black Pearl. (A companion model, the CG15 Tour, has "condition of competition" grooves.)
