Cleveland CBX Wedge

Recommended Posts

Our Sponsors

Just heard of the new Cleveland CBX wedges. They are marketed as a forgiving, toe weighted cavity back wedge. I typically do okay with my blade wedges, but am curious to hear thoughts. I mean, why not get extra forgiveness, if their claims around versatility of shots is valid?

Also intrigued, especially after seeing @BarbaJo's article...

First Look: Cleveland CBX Wedges

 

One suggested use is to replace the "set" Gap wedge that came with your iron set. I've already done that but would consider giving this a test against my current PW.

These wedges intrigue me as well. But I would still want to carry a traditional sand wedge or lob wedge for around three green and bunkers. The lack of bounce options was weird to me

as the article says these are GI wedges, and the though is to give for forgiveness into the wedges but by doing this and moving away from the blades you loose that shot shaping ability of the blades. The mindset behind it is i would guess is that players that need the GI wedges are not skilled enough to make those different type of shots with consistency or accuracy and thus would not have the need for that ability to be in their wedge. 

 

I myself believe more in the combo set approach. That's more stated in the new Mizuno article where you get your GI in your long iron and progressively move into the blades for your wedges.

if you haven't read the article written by Tony Covey see below, it's a good one.

These wedges are great,  I love the v-sole.  Really hard to hit a bad shot with these.  If you have the cbx irons the progression to wedges is perfect.

The sweet spot is more centered, rather than towards the heel like other cleveland, and Vokeys.

They look a bit different than I'm used to (Sm5's) when opening the blade up, but haven't had any issues shooting them.

having gamed the RTX3.0 for over a year now I'm a true believer in the wedge tech that Cleveland offers.  I'm assuming a CBX 50 wedge would be really helpful with full swings.  My accuracy issues could benefit from the added forgiveness people talk about.

I replaced a Vokey 50* SM6 with a Cleveland CBX 50* and I have been very happy with the extra forgiveness. The 50* is only a fill swing club for me so this style made sense. I keep stats of my rounds and I have hit 18 of 21 greens with it so far, with two misses being yardage mistakes on my part. I'm sticking with my Vokey 54* and 60* though for around the green versatility.

Good feedback, thx. Been considering the same switch myself .. with the 50° .. so good to hear your positive experience!

I just looked at the mizuno s18 wedges ( forged ). They look cavity back also. The gun metal looks awesome.

I would play the CBX in the higher loft, I got to play the S18 in a 62*

Also got the 60/10 bent to a 62/12 T7 This will be my 2018 starting wedge set-up.

My iron set is the Cobra F7 One Lengths. This set had a blade as the Gap wedge. I never hit it very well. After hearing about the CBXs I was intrigued. I wound up replacing the GW with a CBX. The results were so good that I replaced my SM6 54 and 56 as well. I hit these wedges better than any other I've tried. Maybe it's just the added confidence that if I hit a bad shot there is added forgiveness there, but I'm not looking back to gamer blades anytime soon.

I have these too from the Cleveland fitting event and they have been awesome!! I came from a set of blade wedges that were great when I hit them right, and killed my scores when I didn't, which was most of the time.

These are very forgiving and give great feedback, plus consistency has been fantastic. I've stopped going for the green on longer shots and have tried to set myself up in the 60-130 range because I feel confident with them

I've been using these wedges (52, 56, 60) with graphite shafts for months now. I didn't full swing with my wedges before, because a mishit would spell disaster, but with these, it really does feel like an extension of my irons (W/S C200's). I haven't had this much confidence 100 yards and in, in ... well, ever.

As mentioned in other places around the site, I have had a CBX 54 degree custom built to my specs.  I only used it for a few rounds, the weather here has sucked to say the least.   it did not disappoint in any way.   if not for the fact I had already ordered a set of SM7's I would have gone with three CBX's.   They are that good.

I carry a SM6 F 50/54 but use the CBX 58 for tight lies and bunker play. It's a great tool for the bag and is very easy to hit. Highly recommend giving one a shot.

I just swung a couple the other day at my golf shop and was thoroughly impressed with how light they are.
