Cleveland Golf, a global leader in wedge innovation since 1979, is proud to introduce new Cleveland RTX-3 Cavity Back Tour Satin Wedge, from their latest line of advanced, high-performance wedges. RTX-3 wedges feature three key technologies proven to help you get closer to the hole than any wedge Cleveland Golf has ever made. The Cavity Back has a slightly larger shape that promotes confidence and increases forgiveness. The standard steel shaft is the Rotex Precision Graphite shaft (wedge flex) and the standard grip is the Cleveland Blue Cap by Lamkin.
Features:NEW Feel BalancingT Technology: This patent-pending technology shifts the center of gravity closer to the center of the wedge face - the impact zone - to decrease vibration and maximize head stability at impact. By adding a microcavity inside the hosel and shortening the hosel, nine grams of mass are optimally redistributed in the head for a more centered CG location. This improves feel and tightens shot dispersion, giving you maximum control.
NEW V Sole Grinds: Three tour-proven grinds feature a V shape with more leading edge bounce to help get the club head through the turf faster at impact. This promotes crisper feel and more consistent head speed for increased spin and control. The Low Grind "V-LG" () is Cleveland's narrowest low bounce sole for maximum versatility, the Mid Grind "V-MG" () has mid bounce suitable for a wide range of players and turf conditions, and the Full Grind "V-FG" () is a forgiving full sole design with trailing edge relief.
NEW RotexT Face: Three innovations combine to maximize spin with more consistency. New Tour Zip GroovesT have a deeper, narrower U shape with a sharp edge radius in all lofts to enhance contact across a wide variety of conditions. The advanced, 2-pass micro milling pattern increases friction and is directionally enhanced by loft: low lofts (46°- 52°) have a straighter pattern to accommodate full shots and high lofts (54°- 64°) have a more angled pattern to optimize open-face shots. Laser Milling precisely roughens the face surface to the conforming limit.
Get Closer to the Hole: Cleveland Golf is globally recognized for industry-leading research & development put into every wedge. The extensive testing for RTX-3 compared to both the previous-generation 588 RTX 2.0, our older wedge models and select leading competitors proves that it has the tightest dispersion. It is more accurate than any wedge Cleveland Golf has ever tested*, showing the impressive performance gains when combining new Feel Balancing Technology, the new V Sole Grinds and the Rotex Face:
"After spending more than two years developing these wedges, Cleveland Golf is very proud with the finished product," said John Rae, Vice President of Research & Development for Srixon / Cleveland Golf / XXIO. "Our testing proves the three key technologies in RTX-3 can help golfers get the ball closer to the hole, a tremendous benefit for any player that supports Cleveland Golf's unmatched commitment to the short game."
Scott Carlyle, Sr. Vice President - Global Marketing, added: "the RTX-3 represents some of the biggest steps we have taken in what we consider our three key wedge factors: shape, feel and spin performance."
