Cleveland has introduced the new CBX Full-Face 2 wedge that is scheduled to launch in North America on Feb. 3.
The CBX Full-Face 2 is designed to be more forgiving with a larger face, along with added HydraZip, ZipCore, and UltiZip technologies. It is a wedge built for golfers looking for the right balance of forgiveness and versatility.
“Our new CBX Full-Face 2 wedge allows golfers the freedom to get creative around the greens and in tight yardages, with the perfect amount of spin control,” said Dustin Brekke, director of engineering at Cleveland Golf.
“With the biggest face ever on a CBX wedge, you’ll be able to strike the ball anywhere on the face with more forgiveness, while enjoying controlled stopping power in any conditions,” said Brekke.
With a high-toe profile, CBX Full-Face 2 has a 13 per cent more contact area than the RTX Full-Face wedges, helping players feel more confident with open-face shot opportunities.
Added to this new generation of CBX wedges is ZipCore, a low-density core designed to expand the sweet spot and upgrade moment of inertia for forgiveness.
Combined with a hollow-cavity design, ZipCore helps push the centre of gravity (CG) directly behind the impact zone, while Cleveland’s Gelback vibration-absorbing insert is used to enhance feel.
The striking areas on the CBX Full-Face 2 are integrated with new HydraZip technology, which uses dynamic face blasts and laser lines that enhance friction for improved spin consistency in dry and wet conditions.
New to the CBX Full-Face 2 line, UltiZip grooves are sharper, deeper, and tightly spaced for enhanced spin, control and consistency.
This generation of the CBX Full-Face wedges also feature reshaped sole grinds. The Full Sole design offers more bounce on lower lofts for stable, full swing shots.
The C-Shaped Sole on higher lofts provide added bounce in the centre, along with relief around the heel, designed to enhance the balance between forgiveness and greenside versatility. All sole grinds feature a new bounce chamfer that helps the wedge get in and out of the turf from a variety of attack angles and help prevent chunked chip shots.
The CBX Full-Face 2 wedge offers premium high-spin shaft options, including the True Temper Dynamic Gold 115 Spinner Tour Issue and the Project X Catalyst 80 Spinner. The Lamkin Crossline 360 grip comes standard on all CBX Full-Face 2 wedges.
Golfers will also have the option to personalize the CBX Full-Face 2 with 20 paintfill pigment options across three colour groups.
Suggested retail price is $199.99 Cdn.
