I don’t know if I have 4-6 weeks of good season left, so I won’t apply. Good luck everyone!

54* 58* Cleveland RTX3

I don't like the chrome finish, it tends to show usage worse. I do like the black finish on wedges,  but again the wear shows worse.  The raw just is more durable.

Handicap 10

Currently playing Cleveland RTX4 raw finish wedges (50, 56, 60)

The lack of glare and the ability to have them slowly rust over time is amazing.  The extra spin factor is still TBD.

I love the raw non-shine maybe as mine aren’t shiny given they’re old. Shiny may be distracting!

Mixed bag for me:

Taylor Made 3 wood 
Dunlop 2 iron

Titleist DCI Oversized irons PW - 3 
Taylor Made 55’ Wedge, Callaway 51’ Wedge

~ 24-28 (still working on getting rated) 

Top Flight 56° / American Open 60°

It's a great look,  very basic, not flashy and full of fluff.  The look alone instills confidence in knocking it close.  We're getting into the best playability weather here in NM,  will have lots of time to test.

San Jose, CA

Handicap: 12.1

Cleveland CBX 50 & 54 degree, Cleveland RTX3 58 degree

Besides less glare than standard chrome wedges, I would love to test the theory about RAW generating more spin.  I have never used a raw finishh wedge before.

Testers Wanted (5)


There’s something about RAW wedges that elicits a mixed bag of reactions from golfers. Some swear it gives them more spin—that’s a topic for another day—some say they prefer the look of shiny chrome, tour satin or jet-black finish. Remember the days of one choice? 

At one time the options were so few, many took to the home version of RAW by soaking wedges in Coke and other methods to get them to rust. The last few years have seen many OEM’s offer a RAW version of their wedges. With Cleveland Golf having successfully launched the new RTX Zip Core wedges in the summer, it now is offering the wedge in the popular RAW or it is officially called Tour Rack finish.

So, we’re going to let you tell us if raw is better.   


Testers Wanted

We are looking for FIVE dedicated golfers who will  receive two wedges in the loft they choose to provide an in depth 4 to 6-week commitment to testing the Tour Rack Zip Core wedges.  Testing is open to  Right Hand golfers who reside in the US. 

To Apply please provide the following information:

First Name/City State

We'll be choosing the testers next week, so check back to see if you have been selected.

Love my Cleveland wedges. Thinking the RAW could be an upgrade on bounce & spin.
