Spin technology and fitting options define wedge performance. Few are milling this area (literally) like Callaway. There are two types of milled grooves depending on the loft, plus a new process for creating surface friction between those grooves. Instead of cutting into the flat surface between grooves, the MD4 mills ridges that rise from the surface to create more contact points for spin on the shortest shots. As for fitting, the MD4 has more options than ever (21) across nine lofts with four sole grinds.
comments ( L) You can hit those bounce-bounce-check shots easily. ( M) I like how the bounce lets this club set up flat behind the ball. ( H) It has a sandpaper-like face that puts great action on the ball. Demo this club at eGolf Megastore, or buy online at egolfmegastore.ae
verdict Cleveland’s response to the traditionally complex wedge market is to make a club that complements the irons most average golfers buy. The progressive head shapes—iron-like in the low lofts and wedge-like in the higher lofts—help these wedges fit in with the rest of your irons. That’s in addition to the lighter shaft, the perimeter weighting to help forgiveness and a wide, playable sole. For good measure, the CBX adds its top-shelf groove technology and micro-milled surface-roughness design.
comments ( L) Maybe the looks aren’t for you, but there’s nothing you can’t do well with it around the green. ( M) The big sole can escape any sand situation. ( H) You can chunk this and still get it on the green. Demo this club at eGolf Megastore, or buy online at egolfmegastore.ae

verdict Feel is one of the must-haves in wedge design. But for Cleveland, “feel” isn’t some vague emotional paradigm. It’s science. Specifically, the center of gravity aligns with the center of the face, thanks to a weight-saving hosel design. This centers the head’s mass for more consistent feel. It also improves distance control, accuracy and spin. Much of that extra spin comes from a new groove design (narrower and deeper for better action from the rough) and surfaceroughness treatments optimised by loft.
comments ( L) The shot I see in my mind is the shot I hit. Versatile, too. ( M) The ball just comes off the face softly, with control. ( H) The finish reduces glare. Head responds to all my little adjustments. Demo this club at eGolf Megastore, or buy online at egolfmegastore.ae
