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.

I volunteer as tribute! 
 

8 handicap and moved away from the RTX3’s to SM8’s and the Vokey’s. First time trying Vokeys (got fitted for grinds on real turf) but just aren’t as strong as all my old Cleveland’s or any Cleveland’s I’ve had before.

I want to test my hypotheses that raw finish will perform better when the grass (and the golf ball) is wet from morning dew.

I have a need, a need for spin.

Vokey sm4 48, sm5 52 and sm6 56 and 58, that I rotate depending on the course set up. 

On my opinion the raw wedges are beautiful with the added advantage of no blinding sun reflection.

raw appeals because of the feel!! The feel and look is the key! Plus the bounce but more the feel! No glare is a bonus too
