Testers ANNOUNCED Cleveland RTX 4 Wedges

Recommended Posts

Larry/Florida

14.7

Titleist Vokey 

Not one favorite, but the pitch and stop is what I hit most of the time. Love to hit the flop, but don't get as many chances to hit it.

Good luck to all entries!

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.

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.

      TESTERS WANTED (5)
      Clevleand Golf is making us rethink everything we've heard about center of gravity and MOI. Well at least when it comes to it's new line of Frontline putters.  For years we've been preached to that rear center of gravity leads to a higher MOI and both those things are a good for our game.   Hold onto your Super Size Putter grip, the Frontline model lineup features an array of putters that put the Center of Gravity front and center and as a result lowers the MOI. 
      One of the most astounding statements to this fact was made by Cleveland Golf's Marketing Director Brian Schieke,when he told our very own John Barba,  the forward CG technology in Frontline, once you understand it, can help golfers make a 15-foot putt at the same rate as they can make a 10-foot putt.”
      Well we are going to let five members test one of the Frontline Models and report the results int he form of a very extensive review back to our MGS community. 

      How to Apply
      This is important, so please follow these instructions carefully:

      1. If you haven't already, make sure you're a registered MyGolfSpy Forum member
      2. In this thread (and ONLY in this thread - please don't go back to the blog and apply - it won't do you any good!), tell us the following:

      - Your first name
      - State
      - Your current model of putter
      - What would be your choice of the Frontline putters...select from the Cleveland Golf home page found here .....Frontline Putters left handed model available is the Elvado single bend style. 

      This review opportunity is open to any golfer who resides in the US.  We'll be announcing the testers in this thread next week, so make sure to check back.

      CLEVELAND GOLF INTRODUCES FRONTLINE,
      A COMPLETELY NEW WAY TO DESIGN A PUTTER
       
      HUNTINGTON BEACH, Calif. – Sept. 3, 2019 – Cleveland® Golf, where scoring matters, is proud to announce the release of Frontline. With a radical new weighting brings the center of gravity forward, Frontline provides a revolutionary process for engineering a putter. Frontline launches in North America on Sept. 13, 2019.
       
      “We are very excited about Frontline because it is a completely new approach to putter design,” said Jacob Lambeth, Research and Development Engineer at Cleveland Golf. “By pairing an extreme center of gravity with an improved speed optimized face, we’ve designed a putter that uniquely maximizes directional and speed consistency. Combined with slick black cosmetics, great shapes and hosel options for different stroke types, Frontline really is the whole package.”
       
      With Frontline, the challenge was creating a putter that’s powerful enough to counteract miss-hits and provide consistently straighter putts. The foundation of Frontline is Tungsten Forward Weighting, which places two Metal Injection Molded (MIM) tungsten weights in the face of the putter.
       
      For decades, most mallets have weights in the rear of the putter to increase stability on off-center impacts, but this design places the center of gravity in the back of the putter. Frontline does the opposite, bringing the center of gravity forward for more accuracy on the greens.
       
      Frontline features Cleveland’s Speed Optimized Face Technology (SOFT), which normalizes ball speed across the face for consistent distance performance on every putt. Every model in Frontline features an individualized SOFT pattern to help mitigate speed and distance loss, especially on off-center strikes.
       
      Frontline offers three different mallet options that include Cleveland’s 2135 Technology to help with proper alignment when standing over that critical putt. Finally, Frontline offers two different hosel types to help provide a superior fit: single bend and slant neck. The single bend option is ideal for straight stroke types, while the slant neck option fits best for golfers with a slight arc stroke.
       
       
      Key Innovations Inside Frontline:
       
      ·         Forward Weights: With Tungsten Forward Weighting and the center of gravity positioned closer to the face, Frontline provides better stability through impact for straighter, more accurate putts.
      ·         Speed Optimized Face Technology: Cleveland’s proprietary Speed Optimized Face Technology normalizes ball speed across the face, ensuring consistent distance performance on all your putts.
      ·         2135 Technology: Featured on the Elevado, Cero and Iso models, achieve perfect alignment on every putt, regardless of where your eyes are at address.
      ·         Additional Hosel Configurations: Find a superior fit with two different hosel configurations to suit every player’s stroke types.
       
       
      Frontline comes standard with the Lamkin SINKFit Pistol Frontline grip and is available in 33”, 34”, and 35” length options. The Frontline 4.0 blade MAP is $179.99, while the three different mallet models (Elevado, Cero and Iso) MAP is $199.99. The Frontline Elevado, Cero and Iso feature single bend or slant neck hosel options.

      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.
