I prefer my wedges without a shiny finish. Chrome for irons non for wedges. Raw is as non shiny as you get!

Excellent opportunity here! I prefer my wedges with a wee bit more forgiveness (love the CBX line), but I'm sure some lucky testers will love trying these out. Good luck everyone!

  • Jeff / Southlake TX
  • 13.4 HDCP 
  • Cleveland CG-10
  • More spin sounds appealing

Visually & aesthetically I prefer the satin and black finishes. I'd like to give these a shot, though, to see if the ZipCore technology matches the hype.

I like the fact that raw wedges have no glare and already look worn in as soon as they are used and start to tarnish.  Tools not jewels mentality. 

My bag is a revolving door!

Had raw wedges in the past, definitely prefer to any other finish. Never checked numbers to see if the spin increases?🤷🏻‍♂️

Rust allows for a little bit more control and green side playability. Also the tarnished finish is appealing
