The Cleveland 588 RTX 2.0: 3 Options for Better Wedge Play

RTX2_tech
The Cleveland 588 RTX 2.0 provides a groove enhancement with 3 different sole options letting you optimize wedges to your game.

The grooves in the 588 RTX 2.0 are larger, with a steeper wall that creates 15% more spin than the previous 588 RTX wedge. Cleveland has also instituted a new face-milling pattern on the face of the wedge which increases the volume of the micro grooves. The micro grooves create a roughness on the surface of the wedge for increased spin.

It’s no secret that you can greatly benefit your game from solid wedge play. Are you a sweeper and typically play in hot and firm conditions? Great, they have a wedge for that. Do you take big divots or play in wet/rainy climates? No problem, they also have a wedge for that. Cleveland is giving you the option to choose the grind that best suits your game. There are three sole grinds available: one dot, two dot or three dots. All grinds are available the traditional 588 head or a slightly larger cavity back that features more bounce. Here are the details on the three sole grinds that are available:

low-bounce

One Dot
  • Low bounce with the most relief in the heel, toe and trailing edge of all three options.
  • Good for firm conditions and golfers that don’t take much of a divot.
  • 8 or 10 degrees of bounce.

std-bounce

Two Dots
  • Medium bounce that has a moderate amount of relief.
  • Good for a variety of conditions and golfers that take a normal divot.
  • 12 or 14 degrees of bounce.

full-bounce

Three Dots
  • High bounce that has a full sole width.
  • Good for soft conditions and golfers that take a big divot.
  • 14 or 16 degrees of bounce.

Srixon Z Series Woods: Sleek, Innovative and Tour Quality


The Z Series from Srixon will have you drooling the minute you lay your eyes on them. When you think of Srixon you probably think of golf balls and rightfully so. (It happened to be the #2 ball played at the Open Championship). However, you’ll now begin to associate Srixon with innovation, sharp, clean designs, and tour quality performance golf clubs. This isn’t Srixon’s first go-round with golf clubs either, they have a cult-like following in Japan.  Maybe the rest of us are late to the Srixon party, but better late than never. Let’s take a closer look at these slick looking clubs.

srixon-745-driverThe Srixon Z Series will have two drivers, the 745 and the 545. The Srixon Z 745 has a smaller, 430cc clubhead. It’s designed for a low-handicapped player who prefers a penetrating ball flight and the ability to work the ball. The Srizon Z 745 features Dual Speed Technology which helps effectively transfer the energy you produce throughout the swing into the golf ball at impact. It also features a Quick Tune System (QTS) hosel that has 36 possible settings. This system provides the ability to change and affect the loft, lie and face angle. The adjustable weight port is where you will be able to fine tune the center of gravity (CG). The driver comes with a 7-gram weight, and in addition will include a 3 and 11 gram weight with a tool to make the necessary adjustments easily. The Srixon Z 745 driver also features an all Titanium design, including Variable Face Thickness to enhance the sweet spot. It’s available in 8.5, 9.5 and 10.5 degrees of loft.

srixon-545-driverThe Srixon Z 545 features all the same great benefits of the Z 745 driver with a couple of slight modifications. The Srixon Z 545 driver has a larger 460 cc clubhead design and is designed for all player types. It’s primarily for the player looking for extreme distance with a mid to high launch and a more forgiving shot shape. You’ll notice the adjustable weight is placed on the back of the driver, thus producing a higher trajectory than the Z 745 driver. It’s available in 8.5, 9.5 and 10.5 degrees of loft.

srixon-f45The Srixon Z F45 fairway wood is hot and versatile, designed to maximize launch conditions from a variety of lies. It’s for all player types and will have a mid to high trajectory. It features the same great Dual Speed Technology and QTS adjustability. The Srixon Z F45 fairway wood is constructed of an ultra-hot steel cup face to provide maximum ball speed. It’s available in a 3+, 3, and 4 models.

srixon-h45The Srixon Z H45 hybrid has soft and smooth shapes to create smooth turf interaction and a confident look in the address position. This hybrid features the great benefits of the Dual Speed Technology with a steel face for fast ball speeds. The center of gravity is positioned low in the H45 to produce a high launch, giving you the ability to land the ball softly on the greens. It’s available in 2, 3 and 4 models.

Callaway Big Bertha V Series Driver: Creating as Much Speed as Possible


Do you find yourself trying to swing harder to hit the ball futher? Well, there’s no problem with that except that the golf ball will tend to go sideways and not straight. So how do you create more speed without swinging out of your shoes? The answer is the Callaway Big Bertha V Series driver. This driver is built around speed. It contains lightweight materials, sophisticated aerodynamics and components that will have you hitting it longer than ever before.

speed-optimized-techThe Callaway Big Bertha V Series driver is an ultra-lightweight design starting at 290 grams. A lighter driver sparks a chain of events that will create more clubhead speed, which creates more ball speed, which ultimately has you hitting the ball farther. The Big Bertha V Driver has a unique aerodynamic shaping which lowers drag throughout the entire swing to enhance your swing speed. The clubhead is also made with a forged composite material in the crown, which adds to the overall lightweight design, leading the way for maximum clubhead speed and higher ball speeds.

hyper-speed-face1The Hyper Speed Face is becoming a staple in Callaway’s clubs. It’s a proven face technology that delivers fast ball speeds across the entire face. This is a good thing, because not everyone hits the center of the clubhead everytime. This unique face design is light and robust to help bomb drives down the fairway.

optifit-technologyYou’ll be able to adjust the Big Bertha V Series Driver courtesy of its OptiFit Technology. This is an adjustable hosel that allows you to choose from a combination of 8 settings. Four of the settings will adjust the loft: -1, S, +1, and +2. These four loft settings can be combined with 2 lie angles: draw or neutral. Finding the perfect combination is easy and will help you optimize your trajectory and shot shape.

If you’ve been struggling to create clubhead speed with your current driver, Callaway has the answer. This driver will no doubt add some speed to your swing and distances to your drives. But don’t take my word for it. Swing it for yourself and find out.
