TESTERS ANNOUNCED!

Cleveland's New RTX-3 Wedges

 

 

While it's true that you drive for the show and you putt for the dough, few can argue that it's those 125-yard and in shots that can determine just how much dough you're putting for.

 

Want to sink more putts? Hit it closer to the hole. And Cleveland says its new RTX-3 wedges can help you do just that.

Testers Wanted

The Cleveland RTX-3 wedge series hits the stores next Friday. Cleveland says its new wedges help bring more consistency and better accuracy to your game, primarily by moving the RTX-3's center of gravity closer to the center of the clubface. In addition, Cleveland says the RTX-3's new sole grinds will allow you to pick just the right wedge makeup for your swing and for the types of courses you play.

 

MyGolfSpy is looking for 5 wedge-savvy short game savants to test these new babies out and find out if the RTX-3's are worthy members of the Cleveland family tree of wedges. If selected, you'll get to test (and keep) a 3-wedge set fit to your specifications.

How To Apply:

We take our equipment testing very seriously here at MyGolfSpy, so please read - and follow - these instructions carefully:

 

In this thread, tell us the following:

 

1. Your name, home state and current handicap

 

2. Your current wedge brand and lofts

 

If selected to test and review these wedges for MyGolfSpy, you'll be encouraged to visit a nearby Cleveland Wedge fitter and be fit using the Cleveland Wedge Analyzer. Cleveland will customize your 3-wedge set to your specs.

 

Good luck!!!

My home course is a wedge to every hole because of how short it is. Even our practice area is only 120 yards long!

(No official handicap, usual score mid-/lo-90s)

2. Cobra 50, Callaway Forged 54 and 58

(also have a Tour Edge 1-Out 58 am trying out for the bunkers)

 

Irons (6 and down) and wedges strongest part of my game. :)

Getting off the tee consistently, and length, holding me back... :(

 

* Note I'm currently a tester for the Hogan VKTR hybrid, so I should recuse myself, but I was looking at the CB model with the V-sole and couldn't resist the opportunity to test them out!
