Driver: Thank you MGS, flat out the best driver I have ever had in the bag.
3W: A random purchase after being unable to hit the original epic 3w. Put same shaft that I was fit for in the epic and it has been a match made in heaven. Absolute money from the tee and I know exactly what it will do from the fairway. Combined with the driver there are not many par 5's that I can't reach.
5W: Solid club but this spot has always been a trouble spot in my bag and that hasn't changed in 20 years.
Irons: Love the combo and they feel absolutely amazing. All of them are 1* strong, standard lie and +1/2" Biggest thing I was looking for in making the change was more control. They definitely fly different than P790's but hopefully after an adjustment period they will meet or exceed my expectations.
Wedges: A different look from what I am used to but feel is amazing. The shaft on full swings is so easy for me to deliver correctly.
Putter: Not a fast revolving door but one that moves some. Have gotten used to the look of the center shaft but still struggling with alignment some.
Ball: Titleist PROV1X #23 imprinted with THEZIPR in blue. Have played this ball since its birth and while I have tried many other options nothing has been able to kick it out.
Rangefinder: Bushnell PRO X2
Glove: Footjoy Weathersof. Love the Ping tour glove but at the rate I go through gloves I just can't justify the price difference.
Shoes: Ecco Biom G 3 BOA and Biom Hybrid 3 BOA. Most comfortable shoes I have ever worn.
In the golf club world, where most companies insist on renaming or launching a new name after one or two iterations of a club, to see a company stick with a name into the 4th generation....well that must say something about the winning formula they have. Below is a video from Cleveland Golf on it's RTX4 wedge.
Then we have four members of our forum who are in the process of testing these wedges to see how they perform for their games. See their initial thoughts in the Stage 1 posts below, and follow their on course and on range experiences with them in this thread over the next 4 weeks or so.
The Four Member Testers are:

How's your short game?
These 4 spies are about to find out....
Let's congratulate these 4 spies and follow along as they give these a thorough workout:

(4) TESTERS Wanted Cleveland RTX 4 Wedges
If you do something once and it works well, then why not do it a second, third and now even a fourth time? Makes sense right? Well that must be what the club designers at Cleveland Golf think. A company that knows a thing or two about wedges, has stuck with a successful formula in the RTX line. Without changing the by now well known RTX name, Cleveland has certainly added what it feels are some enhancements to make the wedge even better than before.
What are those changes and how do they perform? Well that's where four trusted forum members will come in, as they will be chosen to test, review and keep two wedges in the RTX 4 lineup. You will be able to choose which two lofts you would like to test and which of the three finishes you'd like.

The results of the My Golf Ball ball study generated a lot of discussion and also questions as a result. If one of those questions you had is, which model of Srixon ball will work best for me, the Z Star or the Z Star XV, then we may the answer for you.
Four of our members were sent a dozen of each, and will be putting them in play on the course and putting green over the next 4 to 5 weeks to see which one works best for them. They will report in regularly along the way with results form both. So feel free to chime in with questions and read both their stage reviews to get their full thoughts.
