Cleveland Golf Reveals CBX 2 Wedges

If you’re a “common golfer” looking for high lofters, well, you’ve just met your best friend; enter the CBX 2, the new wedge from Cleveland Golf, which makes for an upgrade/update of the company’s hugely popular cavity back CBX wedge launched in 2017. The new CBX 2 will hit the stores in a few weeks, on August 30th, and, to make a long story short, it’s aimed at cavity back iron players who are looking for a very forgiving cavity back wedge, loaded with all the imaginable bells and whistles (read forged wedge tech) available in 2019. According to Cleveland Golf’s marketing director Brian Schielke:

“The short game is critical to playing your best golf, and playing wedges designed for your game – and the shots you like to hit – is key.That’s why Cleveland CBX 2 wedges were created. They make the short game easier and more forgiving for the majority of golfers out there playing game-improvement equipment.”

This pretty much sums it up: the CBX 2 is everything about control, spin and forgiveness, making for a high quality wedge built for the masses, i.e. you won’t require a second mortgage on your house to get a sniff of these babies. Since the CBX 2 is designed to please everyday players, the wedge takes inspiration from the world’s best golfers’ gear, but everything’s toned down and made more “civilized” so to speak, yet the new Cleveland CBX 2 still retains the company’s cutting edge tour-proven wedge technology and feel. Basically, if you’re looking for more forgiveness to help you improve your short game, the CBX 2 has your name on it, and we mean that literally, as an option.

To achieve these goals, the CBX 2 wedge is built with a brand new hollow cavity design, which features a hollow chamber located near the heel; but that’s not all, since Cleveland Golf’s R&D department also put a heavy weight in the toe, thus creating a unique structure that maximizes the moment of inertia. On top of that, the CBX 2 wedge comes with state of the art perimeter weighting, which offers unparalleled short game forgiveness, but without sacrificing aesthetics in the process, i.e. the wedge still has a sleek and sexy at address. But wait, the good news doesn't stop here: even if we’re talking about a wedge built for the masses, the CBX 2 comes with the latest gen Feel Balancing Technology, a proprietary tech patented by Cleveland Golf that allowed the company to create something almost impossible: a toe biased CoG/center of gravity. To make things even more interesting, the CBX 2 features Cleveland Golf’s hugely popular and efficient Gelback TPU Insert, which dramatically cuts down nasty vibrations, for delivering an amazing soft feel, as well as a crisp feedback upon ball impact. Here’s Cleveland Golf’s Engineering Manager, Research and Development Dustin Brekke on the CBX 2 wedge metrics:

“The Cleveland CBX 2 gives you 25% more shots on the sweet spot. This helps you hit better shots, but also drastically improves feel at impact. It’s remarkable seeing the performance improvements when golfers switch to the extra forgiveness, better sole designs, and overall weighting that blends perfectly with their cavity back irons”

In order to provide unmatched versatility along with improving short game shots, the new wedge comes with 3 different sole grinds, which are organized by loft, while the philosophy behind the CBX 2 revolves around spin, as the wedge comes with Cleveland Golf’s cutting edge fourth-gen Rotex Face technology, as well as state of the art Tour Zip Grooves and an aggressive/laser milled face, for amazing short game control and maximum spin.

Here’s a quick run-down of the key innovations/tech features available in the new CBX 2 wedges: the hollow cavity design, which maximizes the moment of inertia, together with the wedge’s perimeter weighting for short game forgiveness, the dynamic sole, for simplified shot making via 3 different grind soles for unmatched versatility, feel balancing and gelback tech for pure feel and less vibration at impact, and the fourth-gen Rotex face technology for max spin and more short game control than ever before in a “normie” wedge.

Finally, there’s the question about price, but rest assured, as the CBX 2 is quite affordable at $139.99 MAP for Men’s Steel and Women’s and $149.99 for Men’s Graphite, with the V-Shaped Sole grind offered in 46°-52° lofts, while the S-Shaped Sole grind being offered in 54° and 56° lofts, and the C-Shaped Sole grind offered in 58° and 60° lofts.
