Let's get RAW, shall we?
The new raw/tour rack finish of the RTX Zipcore wedge is made of unplated 8620 carbon steel that will patina and rust after a few weeks of regular use, giving you that signature tour look.

It includes your choice of:
3 sole grinds
5 tour crafted leading edge grinds
2 custom finishes

I am stoked to put up Cleveland's newest wedges to my Wilson Staff. The WS FG Tour PMP has performed REALLY well for me over the last 2+ years. I'm thankful to have been selected by MGS and Cleveland, and also thankful the golf season in Texas is just amping up.

Chip or pitches to elevated greens to allow the ball to land soft but will release like a chip. And definitely use it for my flop shots. 

If in a greenside bunker with a tucked pin I have been known to use the 60 degree to get the ball to come out higher, land softer, and spin more than my 56.

It's 90% Mental

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.   

RTX ZIPCORE TOUR RACK (RAW) WEDGE,

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

Handicap

Current Model Wedges Played

What Appeals to You About a Raw Wedge

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

 

DO NOT QUOTE THIS POST WHEN APPLYING, APPLY IN A SEPERATE POST IN THIS THREAD

The raw wedge has a fantastic look to it. In the high sun I have issues with the sun reflections that can blind me LOL. This matte finish looks it would dull that reflection adequately. I would want a good spin rate on the wedges for the one hop and stop shot. 

It's 90% Mental

Sorry Ross, the testers have already been picked for this, notice the name of the thread, Testers Announced.  When the opportunity is still open they it will say Testers Wanted.
