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...

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!

    Thanks! I've been on the email list for years and often read the forums for information or just to confirm what I think I know. I haven't bothered to sign up as I didn't think I had anything useful to add. Probably still don't.
