Today’s RTX 4 model ($140 each) carries on the tradition exceptionally well with fourth generation Rotex face technology which features the most aggressive face milling and sharpest grooves of any Cleveland wedge to date.
In case you’re wondering the Pro V1 offers a slightly higher launch angle off the tee with medium compression while the Pro V1x produces the highest launch with the firmest compression of the group.
As is the case with all Srixon models the Soft Feel features an Energetic Gradient Growth Core that produces low spin and high launch for outstanding distance. The Ionomer cover on the new Soft Feel is softer and thinner than in the previous model allowing for improved spin rates on short shots around the green as well as an overall more pleasing short-game feel.
A forged carbon steel clubhead further enhances feel at impact while an internal face perimeter cut-out design increases the effective hitting area on the face by about 15%. This provides more forgiveness on off center hits and better ballspeed retention overall.
The LO is the most compact model with a low and forward CG location that promotes a low-mid trajectory. It’s the most iron-like design of the group and is most likely to work for those with faster clubhead speeds.
