Why not?

They offer it in a tour raw (https://www.clevelandgolf.com/us/wedges-/rtx-4-tour-raw-wedge/MRTX4TR.html) Not sure why we didnt pick it

The tour raw is only available right handed.  I went with the tour satin because it had the most available loft and bounce options for me as a lefty.

Great Stage 1's so far! I'm interested in hearing about forgiveness with 3/4 swings and above, if any of you guys are using them for those purposes. I need a new 54* and was leaning CBX but I could easily be persuaded with tales of sticking it close or holing out with these beauties 😉

Played today and the wedges are fantastic!  Hit a few 3/4 swings and the distance control was phenomenal!  My aim needs some work though but quite a few ended pin high!

I've honestly just never been a fan of the raw look.  The rust bothers me and makes me feel like it's not clean.

I tried one at the demo day. They do look like something from a garage sale that had been sitting in the ocean for a few months.

The only thing I would like is the anti shine properties of it. I don’t like chrome, or anything shiny.

I would definitely 2nd this.  I've been using the 54* a lot for 3/4 and full swings.  Forgiveness has been great!  I'm still in shock at how much spin I can put on these things.  I would definitely say put the RTX 4 head-to-head against the CBX.  Without knowing your game, I would probably say if you're only going to use them as a 3/4 and fully swing club, then I would lean towards the CBX.  The only reason I say that is because it would be more like an iron rather than a wedge.

I 100% get that.  I think that is what has made the black finished like the RTX 4 black satin or the Ping Glide 2.0 Stealth have been so popular.  People aren't wanting that glare, and the different finishes are help with that.

I like my 54* for a lot of shots around the green, everything from short chips to 40 yard pitches, however I can't go any more than a half swing with it. Otherwise... disaster. That's why I'm leaning CBX but the RTX seems to be pretty darn forgiving as well in a more compact package.

Shankster:

  The tour satin wedges don't have a bright shine to them.  When I played them today in full sun not once did I notice a blinding glare come off of them!

The RTX 4 is forgiving, but I would hold off until you can demo both to see which works better for your game.  I'm guessing either one will be a winner for you!  Just looking at the pre-sale information, I didn't see an option to select different bounces for the CBX2's where as you have a ton of choices for bounce for the RTX 4's, more so if you are right handed.  That alone could make your decision.

I have used a raw wedge since Cleveland came out with the RTG. It's got zero impact on performance (though OEM will occasionally claim it does) but I have always preferred the aesthetics of it. I prefer the non-glare and petina of the raw.

Interested in the non v sole players that are using it for the first time.

What was your miss with a standard soled wedge, and are these helping/adding too it?

When I tried them they felt really hard, but it was in the 30’s. What do you all make of them?

1. Butter
2. Bread
3. Toasted Bread
4. Burnt Toast
Or
5. Crispy bacon?
6. Dehydrated Turkey?

Agreed 1/2 and 3/4 are my go to shots close range and. I’ve been sticking them tight! I will say the CBC gen 1 are slightly longer so if distance is an issue

I like the feel of the RTX 4, I'd say 1.5 🙂

I didn't find any distance issues...in face they seemed about half a club longer for me.

Was also able to play around with the wedges more yesterday, absolutely in love!

I have always been good with my wedges, but these I've able to drop shots in and stick a lot better. The 56* is perfect for that off the green drop it between the pin that's 5 feet in. I am seeing a little loss in distance from the CBX gen 1 wedges I normally use. Its nominal, may 8-15 yds.

The impact picture is from a slowmo video of the club hitting the ball!

The picture with the ball mark on the green was from about 70 out with the 56*, I was actually able to put a lot of backspin on it.  
 
 
 
 

A couple years back, I was fortunate enough to get chosen by MGS to review the new RTX. Two things I couldn’t get over were the REALLY long hosel, and what looked like a LOT of offset. From one of your pics, it looks like the hosel is still long. I sure hope the offset has been decreased.

I really don't notice any offset at all.  I'll try to take a picture of it sitting at address soon

I have to say the XLow has changed my game completely out of the bunker...here's an example of 8 bunker shots in a row.  5 to the pin closest to the bunker, 3 to the middle pin.

I mean look at out close these are!!

Also can vouch for that. Not much if any. And you all know how much I hate offset...

      I have been using my new MG2 for a few weeks now and really like the feel. I have 2 other Taylormade wedges that I have used for the last few years and this one just feels different. It also passes the eye test as I seem to be getting more spin on the ball than I have before with the other wedges. Would like to know others thoughts on them. Thanks.

      (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.
