Cleveland Golf has introduced its latest flagship wedge, the RTX ZipCore, which launches in North America on Aug .14 .
RTX ZipCore is both new and familiar.
On the inside, its new core has unlocked design freedoms to push performance, yet on the outside, the sleek, yet traditional, design is familiar and inspires confidence at address.
“Cleveland wedges are always just beautiful looking clubs and this one is no different,” said Shane Lowry, winner of the 2019 Open Championship. “ They’re very traditional and I just love them. You need to be able to trust what your wedges are going to do and RTX ZipCore does everything I need it to do. I couldn’t ask for anything else in a wedge.”
The foundation of RTX ZipCore is a unique, low-den sity core that sits at the heart of the wedge. This ZipCore makes you shifts the centre of gravity, while also boosting High-Low MOI for more stability high and low on the wedge face . The result is that ZipCore puts more impacts on the sweet spot for more consistent spin , distance and feel on every shot.
Furthermore, RTX ZipCore features Cleveland’s new UltiZip Grooves. Compared to previous generations, UltiZip Grooves are 11 per cent sharper and 7.3 per cent deeper, while also being 7.4 per cent closer together for more groove contact area . The combination of these factors ensure that RTX ZipCore generates increased spin and consistent spin performance from any lie.
To preserve the lifespan of our grooves, RTX ZipCore also features a new heat treatment to boost durability and maintain spin performance.
“The new RTX ZipCore is a technological leap forward for Cleveland wedges,” said Jeff Brunski, vice president of research and development. “We’ve inserted a low-density core inside the clubhead, allowing us to create a wedge with unprecedented consistency and exceptional feel. They also feature our tour-proven grinds and most aggressive groove technology to date – all packaged in a sleek yet traditional design.”
