... I bought those for the Mrs and she really likes them. I would add they are a pretty large club head for a wedge so that might be something that is appealing or a deterrent depending on your preference. 

It doesn't thrill me, but you're talking to a guy who's playing the G700s. I've already given up on the svelte-looking club idea.

11* of bounce - you play on any tight lies or is the grass fairly thick?  I would imagine it's thick with all of the "precipitation" you get in the non-summer months... 😉

Any interest in a high toe option?  CPO has the PM grind for about the same price....unfortunately they're used.  😞

Currently playing the PM Grind in my 58°. I like it for very particular lob shots, but the funky head shape gives me fits if I try a full swing on it.

Yeah... I kind of felt similar...just odd to luck at for full swings.  SUPER DUPER spinny though!

Really want to get a new set if irons but normally I get used clubs so the idea of shelling out for fitted irons makes me cringe.

Think of it as a 5 year investment and annualized the cost isn't so bad...

...isn't that what your supposed to do with the money the IRS sends you in February??? 🙂

The biggest thing keeping me from a single digit cap is my short game. I know it's me and not my clubs. But I'm intrigued by the potential forgiveness offered by the Cleveland RTX-3 CB wedges. This is a great price and I have a birthday coming up.

Talk me into it or out of it.

DO IT!!  Can't pass them up at that price. 

 

And, if you really want talked out of it, you should've come somewhere else.

Yeah, I'm reading a bunch of reviews right now, and most of them a strongly positive. I think it's easy to get the RTX-3 CB confused with the CBX—both are bigger than an ordinary bladed wedge, but it's the CBX that is the larger of the two.

From what I've read, the CB wedges are good with chips and pitches, which is what I'm most interested in. In a sense, I'm more intrigued by the Cleveland sole than I even am by the cavity features.

Yes, forgiveness on chips and pitches is often overlooked on wedges. That's actually one of the top features I look for in a wedge. If it doesn't preform well when chipping it isn't worth using!

Which putter? I've been eyeing a Spider X after rolling a bunch of putters while killing time waiting for the commander to finish at the salon and I can't stop talking about it.

To test the waters. I bought a ray cook mallet off rockbottom last year. Think for $25
It looks like the Taylormade long legs mallet.
Just looked and you can get one now for $20 plus shipping lol
Sr500 model is kinda like the one I have.

I’m slowly getting closer to adding 60* to the bag. Debating on whether I should go with the PM or the MD4.
I got $40 credit/rewards at Dicks/GG that I need to burn so might make the final decision soon!
 

I have not tried the MD4 but the PM grind is great for most any lie.  I have trouble when ball below my feet; I hit off the toe a lot and the high toe PM grind will still spin the ball with the grooves out on the toe.  It's also a great wedge out of sand.  It's more bounce than I wanted, but it's easy to hit off tight lies, and the added bounce comes in handy.

I will likely add a 46 or 48 MD4 in the future, since the PM grind only goes to 54.

The only issues I have with Rockbottom is that they do; or at least used to, raise the price if they are offering a discount code and since I live in Virginia (actually 20 minutes from their distribution center) I have to pay shipping and sales tax which limits how good their deals are.

I’ve only dealt with them twice and it’s been OK.
Placed an order Monday evening and driver was delivered around noon today.
Brand new F8 driver, LH, and was as advertised for a great price. Now I’m a cranky senior so if they made me happy that’s pretty good.

After today's 40-putt fiasco, a new putter is in the forefront. Just something different to look at or feel. Its gotta be better.
