Cleveland CBX2 Wedges are the perfect game improvement wedges for the higher handicap players who use game improvement clubs and are struggling with their short game.
The CBX2 were designed with a lighter hosel, a tapered flange, a wider toe, and a new Hollow Cavity design. The hollow cavity designs results in the center of gravity (CG) where you hit the ball. That means straighter shots that go farther and feel better and It offers more forgiveness.
The paradox of the golf equipment world is that everybody has the ability to go out and purchase the same clubs their favorite pros play week in and week out on the PGA Tour, but should they? The fact is that most golfers struggle to break 90 on a regular basis. That’s why Cleveland introduced its line of CBX wedges. They are wedges with all the functionality golfers want with the forgiveness that the vast majority of them need.
I think when it comes to golf equipment, most golfers are susceptible to a bit of vanity, whether they are eager to admit it or not. By that token, it’s a breath of fresh air that these wedges don’t have a bunch of design elements that scream “CHECK OUT MY TECH FEATURES!” The clubs have a clean, classic, and razor-sharp look.
The sound of impact is a crisp ‘tock.’ The feel is excellent. Though not as buttery soft as a forged blade-style wedge, the feedback on strike location is evident in the way the ball comes off the club and rolls out on the green, and also in the hands to a greater degree than I expected from a cavity back wedge.
One of the favorite parts about playing golf is being creative around the greens. Deciding what route the ball ought to take to the hole is often a much more nuanced process from 10 yards than it is from 100. Being able to open up the blade and pop it up in the air or hood the face and get it running quickly with equal ease.
On full shots, the CBX 2 gets the ball in the air in a hurry. From the rough or from the fairway, well-struck shots launch very high. A ball struck with less than total precision will get a couple more yards of carry than one struck with a blade-style wedge.
