Cleveland 588 RTX 2.0 Wedges: A New Spin

Posted at 10:31 AM by Michael Chwasky | Categories: Cleveland

ClevelandWedge
The latest iteration of Cleveland’s famed 588 wedge is the company’s biggest wedge offering to date, including 120 options (comprised of clubhead model, bounce, loft, and sole grind). Available in blade and cavity back models, the 588 RTX 2.0 ($130) comes in three unique sole grinds that are geared to optimize performance for specific swing types and playing conditions. The Low Bounce grind is best for players with a shallow angle of attack or very firm conditions, while the Standard Bounce grind is aimed at those who have a “normal,” angle of attack and desire the highest level of versatility from a variety of playing conditions. The Full Sole grind offers the highest amount of effective bounce and is best for players with steep attack angles or those who tend to play in soft conditions. 

The blade model is slightly more compact and is available in both Black Satin and Tour Stain finishes, while the cavity back is slightly larger and more forgiving and comes in only the Black Satin finish. Both models feature Tour Zip grooves that are approximately 8-percent deeper than the previous RTX design, making them even more effective at performing from thick or wet turf. A new Rotex face-milling pattern increases face roughness for even more spin and control.

Tour Edge Exotics E8 Driver: First LOOK!

Posted at 1:04 PM by Michael Chwasky | Categories: Drivers, Tour Edge

E8Driver
The new 460cc Exotics E8 driver ($299) is designed with a low and forward CG location, which promotes higher launch, lower spin, and faster ball speed and distance. The E8 also features a somewhat low-profile design, which further aids players who struggle to launch the ball high in the air (a critical characteristic for maximum distance). 

A channel positioned behind the clubface in the sole of the club is deeper than it was on the previous XCG7 model, allowing for increased face flex at impact. This “Power Grid,” design is aimed at further enhancing the club’s ability to produce lower spin and faster ball speed. A variable face thickness design works with the “Power Grid,” to provide improved performance on shots struck away from the center of the face, particularly in the heel and toe areas as well as low on the clubface. 

Adjustability is provided by a hosel that offers lofts ranging from 8.5-degrees to 12-degree in .5-degree increments, allowing for very exact custom tuning. The E8 can be further customized using an interchangeable 7g sole weight that can easily be swapped out to alter swingweight, ballflight, and feel. 5g, 10g, and 12g interchangeable weights are available in an optional weight kit. 

The matte black E8 is available with a number of popular shafts including Fujikura Pro Series and Pro Tour, Aldila Rogue Silver and Black, and Mitsubishi Bassara E-Series models. As with all Tour Edge clubs the E8 comes with a lifetime warranty and a 30-day play guarantee. 

E8DriverBeta
For players with higher clubhead speeds who prefer a driver with even lower spin and slightly lower launch, Tour Edge also offers the Exotics E8 Beta ($399) model. Featuring a 440cc deep-faced clubhead, the Beta is built with a slightly higher CG location than the standard model, which promotes a more penetrating trajectory and even lower spin rates. A beta titanium clubface insert not included in the standard model enhances feel at impact while also increasing ball speed.

Callaway Apex Muscleback Irons: First Look

Posted at 9:08 AM by Michael Chwasky | Categories: Callaway, Irons

Apex-mb-iron-back-2014

Built with significant input from Callaway's Tour Staff, the new Apex Muscleback ($1099) features the traditional look and feel that the best players in the world often prefer with a bit of playability mixed in. Considered to be Callaway's premium forged iron, the Apex Muscleback is "quad forged," from Carbon steel for the ultimate feedback at impact and also features an optimized sole camber that provides greater versatility than a standard muscleback design. Apex-mb-iron-address-2014

The same wide spaced grooves used in the Apex Pro irons provide more consistent spin rates from varying turf conditions, making them easier to control for players who can handle a true blade. 

The Apex Muscleback will be available through custom order on September 12.
