Cleveland CBX Wedges Change The Game

Reading Time: 3 minutes

cbx wedges

In their research, Cleveland found 84% of golfers play cavity back irons. This large group benefits from the added forgiveness of perimeter weighting of the cavity back. So, why do many wedges not carry over this forgiving design? Cleveland engineers answer that question, releasing the CBX wedges. These wedges blend seamlessly with any cavity back irons you currently play. Add that with the latest tech and you have a wedge that truly changes the game.

What’s So Great About Cleveland CBX Wedges?

Cavity Back Design

Cleveland has released cavity back versions of wedges in the past. The designs, however, were based on their blade offerings and adapted to the cavity design. The CBX is their first cavity wedge designed from the start to be a cavity wedge.

The biggest goal with these wedges was to increase the MOI, giving forgiveness to players on wedge shots. Designers take 76 grams of weight from the back of the club and redistribute it to the perimeter of the club. This placement results in greatly increased forgiveness and moves the sweet spot closer to the center of the club face.

Feel Balancing Technology

Consistent performance is provided thanks to Feel Balancing Technology, a technology also featured in other new Cleveland wedges. Designers bore out weight in the hosel, forming a microcavity. The microcavity shifts the center of gravity closer to the middle and creating a sweet spot where the ball (usually) hits the face.

Dual V Sole Grind

The Dual V sole on the CBX wedges gives you better interaction with the turf in all conditions and lies. As you make contact, the sole gets through the turf, helping eliminate fat and thin shots. As the name suggests, the Dual V sole runs in 2 directions. It goes not only from front-to-back but also from heel-to-toe. The heel-to-toe V lets you play a variety of shots without losing the beneficial turf interaction.

CBX Wedge Specs

  • Lofts: 46-60, in 2-degree increments
  • Shaft: Dynamic Golf 115-gram; gives a lighter feel while still making them easy to play
  • Bounce: Only available in Standard Bounce


All in all, the Cleveland CBX wedges offer players the latest in wedge performance with a more forgiving sole and modern cavity design. If you play cavity back irons, this wedge will blend seamlessly with your set.
