How's your short game ? Did you know that 60% of your game is 60 yards and in? That means you need a good set of wedges - a really good set. Cleveland has been making wedges since 1979.....th

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: @MDGolfHacker @Apes44 @goa

Excited for the opportunity.  My SM7's are about 2 months old so this should be a real good comparison.

Keith N, New Orleans, LA

Handicap is 14.3

60 degree - Callaway Mack Daddy PM Grind (75-90 yards)

56 degree - Callaway Mack Daddy PM Grind (90-105 yards)

52 degree - Callaway Mack Daddy S Grind (105-115 yards)

48 degree - Callaway Mack Daddy S Grind (115-130 yards)

My favorite type of wedge shot is about 85-130 yards from green. I tend to to get a lot of spin on these which gets them to one hop and stop. If it weren't for offline drives or my own arrogance for continuing to hit driver these clubs would have me in better shape handicap wise.

(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.

HDCP: 1.8

Titleist SM6 60/08 and SM7 56/10 and 50/08 bent to 51*

3/4 flighted shot into wind that takes one hop then stops. But then again, any shot with a wedge is a real joy.

Jose/MD

16.8 HC

Cobra one length gap and SW

Favorite wedge shot I've pulled off - short-sighted greenside sand trap with a pin placed two steps from it.  Opened up the wedge, full swing and almost holed it out.  Had enough juice to spin and stop it 3"  from the pin.
