Curious to see these raw finishes! Prefer to play mornings and practice evenings

Also on leave for the birth of my beautiful daughter so I have some time to practice and test!

SM6 50,54,58 each in a different finish. Black, chrome, satin so it easy to pick the correct one.

I would like to see if the hype for the current crop of raw wedges is correct. A long time ago I "coked" my Wilson R90 even though it was stainless steel. While it is still possible to rust stainless steel, it isn't all that easy so not sure I had the full effect.

BTW, how are the winners going to determine wedge numbers without a shot monitor? What are the testers going to be looking for? 

Driver: Callaway Epic 9 degree, stiff

FW: Callaway Epic 3,5,7 regular shaft (driver shaft in 3 wood, 3 wood shaft in 5 wood, 5 wood shaft in 7 wood)

Hybrids: Callaway BB19 4,6,7 

Irons: Callaway Steelhead 7,9,PW (gapping distances require both a 7 hybrid and 7 iron, choke on the 7 for 8 iron distance or hook the 9 iron)

Wedges: Titleist Vokey SM6 50,54,58

Ball: Titleist Pro V1, 1X, Vice Pro Plus or anything I find that day and try out for the fun of it (I haven't bought balls with my own money in at least 10 years)

Current Model Wedges Played:  Mizuno MPT Series, 51, 56 and 60 degree

What Appeals to You About a Raw Wedge: Very excited about the opportunity to test these wedges. Have been itching to get my hands on the Cleveland RTX Zipcore for a test drive.  Interesting to see they've introduced the raw finish and would like to know if the raw finish provides a benefit to look and play.

I like the matte finish and the spin capability of the new wedge. I’m also curious how it compares to my current RTX 3 in feel around the green.

Man I really want to apply.  But, I'm having a minor surgery in November and probably wouldn't be able to test.  


Good luck everyone!

Playing something with a different look that is less shinny. I have heard great things about Cleveland's new wedges and I am interested in trying them because I love my Srixon irons.
