VER­DICT Get­ting the cen­tre of grav­ity just right in a wedge has always been a challenge, Cleve­land says, be­cause the hosel is longer than with other clubs. As a re­sult, the head’s bal­ance has favoured the heel side. This wedge line – which in­cludes 34 mod­els in blade and cav­ity-back – moves the CG to­wards the mid­dle of the face by shift­ing weight from the hosel to the club­head. The idea is to pro­duce more con­sis­tent spin, dis­tance and feel. COM­MENTS

(L) I was able to lay open the com­pact head with ease, keep the tra­jec­tory down and dial in my dis­tance. (M) Nice turf interaction. The milling feels like Vel­cro. Fan­tas­tic spin. (H) The sweet spot is but­tery, muted and sub­tle.
