Cleveland Golf has released details of its new CBX 4 ZipCore Wedges – designed to help golfers shake the dreaded chunk shot and get up and down with confidence thanks to a modern cavity-back design and refreshed slate of performance technologies.
After researching the frequency with which mid-to-high handicappers strike wedge shots on the toe side (more than half the time), Cleveland has introduced a slightly toe-biased sweet spot in the new line (RRP £159). This was made possible thanks to ZipCore technology, which utilises a low-density material to help reposition mass for more heel/toe and high/low MOI. CBX 4 ZipCore Wedges feature a 7% increase in heel/toe MOI and 5.8% increase in high/low MOI compared to the previous generation, resulting in the highest total MOI in a CBX Wedge ever.
To maximise spin in any conditions, the wedges feature HydraZip technology – face blast and laser line patterns which boost friction for improved spin consistency from any lie. UltiZip grooves are also included to maximise spin.
Cleveland has also taken the guesswork out of selecting sole shapes by creating three Dynamic Sole Grind selections – each optimised by loft. All three sole grinds (V-, S- and C-Shaped) feature a new leading-edge design that promotes smoother turf interaction and helps prevent chunked shots.
