From a performance standpoint, RTX-3 Cavity Back wedges were designed to accomplish the same thing as RTX-3 wedges, that being to help golfers get the ball closer to the hole both from the fairway and around the green. To accomplish that goal, Cleveland utilized three crucial design elements. First, the center of gravity in the RTX-3 Cavity Back wedges has been moved away from the hosel and closer to the center of the clubface, with the result being improved feel, enhanced stability, and tighter shot dispersion.
Also of note, RTX-3 CB wedges utilize a new V Sole Grind that improves turf interaction, which was accomplished by adding bounce to the leading edge. Because these wedges glide through the turf so effortlessly, clubhead speeds remain consistent, enabling players to hit the ball more precise yardages. Finally, a new Rotex clubface improves and creates more consistent spin from all turf conditions. The new Tour Zip Grooves are now deeper and narrower for more spin, while the micro-milling pattern is angled on higher lofted wedges to increase spin on shots played with an open clubface. What is different about the CB model, however, is its shape. It has a larger overall profile that was designed to inspire confidence and provide increased forgiveness. RTX-3 Cavity Back wedges are available in a Tour Satin finish.
