Cleveland RTX-3 Wedge Review: You should know

A shorter hosel removes 9g of weight. By redistributing this mass engineers have positioned the centre of gravity closer to the centre of the face, which means better feel and a tighter shot dispersion. V Soles improve turf interaction and deliver a 23% reduction in head speed loss. Loft specific milled faces, micro milled lines, and deeper narrower grooves with sharper edges optimise spin from all lies and distances.

Cleveland RTX-3 Wedge Review: We say

Cleveland started out in 1979, and since then they reckon their wedges have captured 350 PGA tour titles, 26 majors and been played by 11 world number ones.  So we reckon it’s fair to say they know a thing or two about getting up and down in two. The RTX-3 is based on the brands legendary 588 head shape, and we particularly liked the straighter leading edge which gives the sense of being able to nip shots cleanly and confidently from tight lies and makes it easier to set up square to your target. Our testers generated over 9,000rpm of backspin with 44% of full shots, which was well above our test average. It means you’ll have no difficulty nestling shots down next to the flag in any conditions.

Cleveland RTX-3 Wedge Review: Verdict

By being short game specialists Cleveland focus lots of time on improving every aspect of the wedges they produce, and it’s clear to see plenty of thoughts gone into the RTX-3. Tiny things like the direction of the face milling to maximise grip when opening the face, and protecting every face groove from the finishing process (so it’s razor sharp) means the RTX-3 is right at the top of the pile when it comes to performance, value for money and of course options to allow you to work them into your own bag.
