ClubTest 2018: Cleveland CBX wedge review
SPECS: 46°/9°, 48°/9°, 50°/11°, 52°/11°, 54°/12°, 56°/12°, 58°/10° and 60°/10°, with steel or graphite shaft options.
RECOMMENDATION: Targets mid- and high-handicap players who want enhanced forgiveness in the short game with plenty of spin control and feel.
KEY TECHNOLOGIES: The Feel Balancing, Rotex face and loft-specific milling seen in the RTX-3 come standard, as does a Dual V Sole grind for improved turf interaction, and—the kicker—a cavity-back design for extra forgiveness and a seamless blend in the bag for those who play game-improvement irons.
Cavity-back wedges aren’t that common, so the CBX is definitely something to talk about. With this model, years of Cleveland wedge-design expertise come together to produce a model that fits into any game-improvement-iron set, but that still offers the same forgiveness, accuracy and spin control you’d expect from a Cleveland wedge.
“Offers most of the performance benefits of the RTX-3, but with the added benefit of a cavity-back design.”
