Product Review: Cleveland 588 RTX 2.0 Wedges

I couldn’t be more excited to receive the new Cleveland RTX 2.0 wedges. Not just because Cleveland makes the best wedges in golf but because the Rotex technology is a game changer. RTX HawaiiYou ask, how can you say that? Well during this past year, with my Rotex 1.0 56* wedge, I was able to slam my first Hole In One from 138 yards by knocking it 4 feet past and spinning it right into the cup. Not only was it the best feeling in the world but solidified my commitment to a lifelong Cleveland wedge user.

However, the real story with the new RTX 2.0 wedges is the new sole / bound grind combinations that gives players unlimited versatility of their custom wedge. So buckle up for more spin, more high fives and lower scores.

 

Product Review:

Look 10/10:

Last year when I unwrapped the original Rotex wedges I thought there’s no way you can make this wedge look any better. Well Cleveland again has proved me wrong and made the cleanest looking wedge on the market. The same tour satin and black satin wedges are available in the new RTX 2.0 wedges.

They kept the same great look of the Rotex 1.0 wedges with a few updates to give it a more sleek design.  I give the overall look a 10/10.

Distance Control & Accuracy 9/10:

Distance control and accuracy is crucial in being able to score and shoot lower scores. I believe the most important shot in golf is the 100 yards and in. Putting is important but if your approach shots aren’t getting close, you can only try and drain so many 45 footers.

The ability to have full customization with sole and bounce will elevate your game to a whole new level, especially with the Rotex face technology. Playing these wedges the past couple of weeks, and using GAME GOLF to track my shots, I have been able to hit over 70% of my approach shots from inside 100 yards to inside 40 feet. I give the overall distance control and accuracy a 9/10.

Feel 10/10:clevelandwedge

Everyone has their own take about feel but my personal experience with these wedges, especially with the blades, is that you receive instant feedback on a shot with RTX 2.0 wedges. It has allowed me to dial in approach shots better than ever, helping me get back to an almost scratch handicap.

The versatility of the 3 grind options allows you to zero in on the perfect wedge for your game.  I give the overall feel a 10/10.

Spin 10/10:

The combination of the sharper grooves, laser milling and Rotex face will give you maximum spin unlike anything on the market. Cleveland changed the face of spin the past year and taken it to the limits allowed by the USGA.

I have played these wedges in Sacramento, San Francisco and Hawaii and with all those variants of different grass types and playing conditions, they performed immaculately. I promise this will be the best purchase you will make in years. I give the overall spin rating a 10/10.

Overall Rating 39/40:

The overall performance of the Cleveland 588 2.0 RTX wedges go above and beyond.  Wedge customization has been taken to a whole new level with the combination of 2 different head designs and 3 different sole grinds makes these wedges the most versatile wedge family ever for Cleveland. This is a great direction for the best wedge company in golf.

These wedges are worth every cent. Feel free to find your nearest dealer and give them a try yourself (DEALER LOCATOR LINK).

TECHNOLOGY

The evolution of the 588 Rotex wedge started by listening to the top players in the world. Listening to the demands a Keegan Bradley, Graeme McDowell or Hideki Matsuyama faces, week in and week out, from 125 yards and in. We then looked at what factors lead everyday players to succeed or fail in the scoring zone. After hundreds of hours of interviews and field testing, we identified a common need for all golfers, regardless of ability level: Versatility.

From that research we developed 3 distinct wedge grinds in two different head designs that are proven to optimize the short game for players of all abilities. For the improving wedge player, a more forgiving cavity back design, and for the better player, a traditional muscle-back head shape.

Add to that three distinct grind options and the 588 Rotex 2.0 becomes our most versatile wedge family ever.

Tour Zip Grooves

Fourth generation Tour Zip Grooves feature 8% larger walls and sharper radii than ever before. Through testing we have seen that more grass, dirt, and moisture are channeled away from the face for cleaner contact and more consistent spin.

Rotex 2.0 Face Pattern

Advanced, 2-pass micro milling pattern provides a strategically designed roughness close to the USGA limit. This leads to increased friction and more spin, especially from inconsistent lies.

Laser Milling

Fine tunes the micro-roughness for more consistency and texture across the face. This allows us to reach the USGA roughness limit, and pushing this boundary lends itself to increased spin on pitch and chip shots.

We created three distinct grind options for the 588 RTX 2.0 wedge family. This comprehensive system has made it easier than ever for any golfer to build a wedge set that maximizes performance based on turf conditions, playing preference, and skill level. By progressively varying the wedge’s sole design according to bounce, we have created an unmatched array of scoring tools that players can simply and easily identify as the best options for their game.

Low Bounce Grind (1 Dot)

The Low Bounce Grind provides the lowest effective bounce, allowing players to be aggressive from anywhere around the green. The combination of a trailing edge grind and maximum relief from the heel and toe lets the player be creative from even the tightest of lies. Low Bounce Grind is ideal for firm conditions and/or players with a more shallow attack angle.

KEY FEATURES

  • Trailing Edge Grind + maximum heel/toe relief
  • Lowest Effective Bounce
  • Keeps leading edge close to ground for aggressive lob shots, yet provides stability on square-faced full shots

Standard Bounce Grind (2 Dot)

The Standard Bounce Grind provides a mid-effective bounce, offering players a wedge that performs well in most conditions. The combination of a trailing edge grind and moderate relief from the heel and toe gives the player the perfect combination of versatility and forgiveness. Standard Bounce Grind is ideal for a wide variety of conditions and/or players with a neutral attack angle.

FEATURES

  • Trailing Edge Grind + moderate heel/toe relief
  • Mid Effective Bounce
  • All-around playability and versatility, allowing golfer to execute a variety of shots from most playing conditions

Full Sole (3 Dot)

The Full Sole Grind provides a slightly higher effective bounce, allowing players to smoothly glide through any surface with ease. Consistent sole width gives players confidence when striking their ball on full shots while maintaining versatility around the green. Full Sole Grind is ideal for softer conditions and/or players with a steep attack angle.

FEATURES

  • Constant Sole Width
  • Higher Effective Bounce
  • Allows the golfer to use the sole to their advantage around the greens. Full shape gives stability on full shots, however the curvature in the sole still allows player to open the face.

More Speed. Better Launch: Nike Golf’s Vapor Fairway Woods

BEAVERTON, Ore. (October 13, 2014) – Nike Golf innovation begins with the golf athlete in mind – always. Nike engineers and designers took the inspiration and insights from Nike Nike Vapor 3 Woodathletes to drive the technology of Nike’s new Vapor Speed and Vapor Flex fairway woods, available on January 30, 2015.

“Athlete insights drove significant chassis refinement in the Vapor fairway woods.” said Nate Radcliffe, Director of Engineering for Nike Golf. “Our athletes wanted tighter but forgiving leading edges, fuller profiles and added ball speed.  We’ve delivered that with the synergy of our FlyBeam and compression channel technologies.”

The Vapor Speed fairway woods have a 25% larger footprint with a lower and deeper Center of Gravity (CG) than previous Nike models.

“Athletes including Tiger Woods requested larger face profiles in fairway woods, but it was vital that we do that without compromising ball speed or optimal launch conditions,” said Radcliffe.  “We successfully modified the chassis by sloping the crown to lower the CG which optimized launch characteristics across the family.”

Like the new Vapor drivers, the Vapor Speed fairway woods feature Nike’s new FlyBeam-reinforced Covert Cavity Back design, a re-engineered Compression Channel and a NexCOR face – all combining to stabilize the chassis, maximize ball speed and promote longer and straighter distance. The low CG provides a high launch with a lower-spin flight.Nike Vapor 3 Wood

The Vapor Flex fairway woods highlight the same technologies found in the Vapor Speed on a more compact chassis, except the Vapor Flex has added Nike’s FlexLoft 2 adjustability system, allowing the golf athlete the functionality of five lofts and three face angles within 15 different settings.

The new, improved FlexLoft system is five grams (30%) lighter without compromising function, which leads to a CG that is up to 2mm lower on the Vapor Flex fairways. The redistribution of mass creates more stability, better launch conditions and faster swing speeds. Another benefit of FlexLoft 2 is its forward and backward compatibility. Golfers with previous generations of Covert can use shafts with the original adaptor in the new head or vice versa.

GAME GOLF: The Friday 5 with Sean Rivers

This week, GAME GOLF caught up with Sean Rivers – an avid golfer, blogger & golf course designer to talk about his involvement in the golfing industry, his use of GAME GOLF and his thoughts on winning our first Bridgestone Golf Long Drive Challenge!

1. Tell us a bit about yourself Sean.

My name is Sean Rivers. I am originally from Great Falls, Montana but now live in Northern California. I work as a Design Assistant for Kyle Phillips Golf Course Design, and I am also a golf equipment blogger for my personal website, Seanmrivers.com.

2. What is your earliest memory from playing golf?

I started playing golf around the age of 5. At that time, my dad would take me to the driving range or we would play our local municipal course. Growing up, nothing compared to the challenge of the greatest sport in the world. Playing competitive golf early on led me to receive a golf scholarship to Carroll College in Helena, Montana. I have always been hooked on golf!

3. How did you first hear about GAME GOLF and what have been your first impressions of using the system?

When I first saw GAME GOLF it was on their Kickstarter page, and I knew this product would be a winner. I started following the organization, and I was stoked once I heard it was hitting the market. I saw the initial reviews and people I follow on Twitter were using it, so I had to jump on board. Immediately, I saw the benefits of this product. They have data you only wish you could have had years ago.

GAME GOLF has helped tremendously by giving me data to tell my PGA Professional instructor, Shanon Hoyt, and Aimpoint instructor, Peter Brown, on what I needed to work on to help lower my scores and finally get closer to being scratch again.

4. Congratulations on your recent victory in the Bridgestone Golf sponsored Long Drive Challenge. Are you a fan of GAME GOLF’s new Challenge feature & tell us your secret to hit that 414 yard drive!

The Challenges on GAME GOLF have to be my favorite feature. Getting involved in the GAME GOLF community through contests such as GIR, lowest score, longest drive, etc., is a great way to still be competitive with a community even though you might just being playing 9 after work.

My friend, Rusty Cage, sent me a message one day on Twitter about the newest competition on GAME GOLF which was the Bridgestone Long Ball Challenge. It couldn’t have come at a better time since I had been playing great and was on my way to Maui for my vacation. I knew I could really go after it with Kaanapali and Kapalua on my play list while I was out there this time.

My 414 yard drive came on Hole 7 at the Plantation Course. I just massacred my Cleveland 588 Custom driver, and when I finally reached my Nike RZN Black golf ball in the fairway, I knew it ended up going over 400 yards. I couldn’t be happier that I finally broke the 400 yard barrier on a drive. I have gotten close in the past but it felt great to finally reach that accomplishment.

My secret – I widen my stance and start the club back wide and making sure to keep clubhead low to ground.  After getting to the top of my swing I make sure to start it the same speed as the takeaway.  The closer I get to to the bottom I just let it rip and make sure to finish with my belt buckle facing left of target to make sure my whole body has driven through the ball.  It’s all about speed and solid contact.

5. How do you think technology like GAME GOLF has changed the face of golf?

I believe GAME GOLF is a game changer for the golf community. I haven’t seen any product on the market that competes to the amount of amazing data that it collects. Knowing the average distance I hit every club makes club selection simple since I know the exact club I need to hit on a shot. In my opinion, GAME GOLF will help more golfers shoot better scores from having revolutionary data at the tip of their fingertips.

Nike Golf Unveils Vapor Iron Franchise: The Iron Reimagined


Nike Golf has reimagined golf irons with the introduction of its new Vapor franchise –Vapor Pro, Vapor Pro Combo, and Vapor Speed. The modern family of irons was unveiled to a global media audience today near New York City during an event featuring Nike athletes Tiger Woods and Rory McIlroy, and celebrity golf aficionado Jimmy Fallon.Vapor_Oven1_large

The Vapor irons blend the detailed craftsmanship of Nike’s master club builder, Mike Taylor; the engineering expertise of The Oven; and the imagination of Nike designers. The result: a family of irons featuring a pinnacle Nike innovation called Modern Muscle.

Modern Muscle is a modification of a standard muscle-back design that moves the iron’s center of gravity to the center of the clubface, crafted to yield more efficient and pure strikes. The innovation has already contributed to a major championship victory when Rory McIlroy put a prototype Vapor Pro Combo 2-iron (MM Proto) in the bag and went on to win the 2014 Open Championship.

While Rory was the first to win with Modern Muscle in the bag, the innovation itself started with insights from Tiger Woods.

“Our engineers and designers at The Oven have been working with Tiger for quite some time to evolve this innovation and bring it to the golf athlete,” said Rob Arluna, Nike Golf’s Global Golf Club Business Director.

“We started with the traditional blade and asked what could be done to enhance its performance and modernize the design while maintaining a traditional, pure look at address. Thanks to Tiger’s inspiration, coupled with Rory’s added insights, we made the Vapor Pro blades feel and perform better with a technology advantage over the traditional blade. We then extended that innovation and design to Vapor Pro Combo and Vapor Speed.”

“Years back when we tested the parts with adjusted weighting, I immediately noticed a more balanced feel and more consistent performance,” said Woods. “Working with the club team to bring this concept to life was a great experience.”Vapor Pro

“We were inspired by the fact that traditional blades all look the same and challenged ourselves to rally around a big idea taken from Tiger’s insights,” said Nike Golf Design Director, Andrew Oldknow. “Our goal was to create a visual look on the exterior of the club that defines what’s happening on the inside. Shifting weight away from the heel of the club for a more precise center of gravity is what defines Modern Muscle, and that is distinctly visible across the three iron designs.

With a modernized take on the classic blade profile, the Vapor Pro is Nike Golf’s most precise iron to date. The Vapor Pro Combo has the clean lines and workability of a blade with the power of a distance iron – resulting in the ultimate blend of precision and power. The Vapor Speed delivers pure power for the golf athlete who wants maximum distance and forgiveness through the set.

Within Nike, the name Nike Vapor is synonymous with the company’s most premium innovations that boldly elevate athlete performance. The Nike Vapor name is featured in other categories within Nike, including baseball and global football.

The Vapor irons will be available on nike.com and at select retailers Oct. 31.

First Look: Cleveland Golf 588 Rotex 2.0 Wedges

clevelandwedge

 

The moment has arrived. Initiate the Spin 2.0 program. The mother ship has landed and dropped off the new goods from Cleveland Golf. The Rotex family has a new offering that has taken the 588 wedge family to another level. The new sole / bounce grind combinations are the real story with the 2.0 wedges that gives players exactly what they wanted in a wedge with unlimited versatility.

So keep your eyes open because they will be landing in your local shops soon enough and I already know how good the Rotex 1.0 was because it delivered my first Hole In One this summer so I’m excited to take the 2.0 wedges out today and see how they perform.

Product Information:

The evolution of the 588 Rotex wedge started by listening to the top players in the world.

Add to that three distinct grind options and the 588 Rotex 2.0 becomes our most versatile wedge family ever. Our Rotex face technology literally changed the face of spin in golf last year. Rotex 2.0 takes spin control to yet another level. 8% deeper grooves and a new micro-milled Rotex face pattern give these wedges the most surface roughness the USGA will allow. It’s Spin 2.0.

Big Picture
With Rotex 2.0, we set out to give golfers more control and increased versatility with their wedges, which ultimately leads to lower scores.

We added control by improving the Rotex Face for more consistent spin from all conditions. We also created 3 new versatile sole grinds to provide the best turf interaction for a variety of player types.

Lastly, we’ll be providing more wedge fitting options than any other company to insure the golfers can select the proper wedges for their games.

Rotex 2.0 Face
Maintains maximum spin from the fairway while increasing spin from the rough by ~15%.

Grooves: Steeper groove walls produce sharper radii. We made the walls steeper to increase groove volume, and we made the grooves sharper to increase spin on wet shots.

Milling Pattern: A new 2-pass Micro Milling increases milling depth by 30% and width by 14%. The passes are timed so the pattern peaks between each pair of grooves.

Laser Milling: Laser pattern improves roughness consistency so we can get closer to the USGA regulations.

Product Review: 2014 Nike Tiger Woods Mesh Golf Shoes

Have you been dying of heat exhaustion this summer when trying to play golf in 100 degree weather? Does your feet feel like they are locked in a sauna and you can’t wait to escape them by the 18th hole? Nike has come to your rescue with the 2014 Tiger Woods Mesh golf shoes to help you get through even the hottest rounds on the course so now you can talk about the hot streak of birdies you went on instead of the coals you were walking on.

PRODUCT REVIEW:

tiger woods mesh

Look 10/10

What if I told you that you could have the look of the 2014 Tiger Woods golf shoe but something that is designed for the ridiculously hot weather such as here in the Sacramento area. Nike delivered a TW mesh shoe that gives you the benefits of the original but lighter materials to give you more breath ability on those hot summer rounds. The Nike free design comes in a white or grey colorway with volt and red colors to make them pop.

Out of my golf shoe collection I have continued to choose these shoes when playing this summer. Not only because they look awesome but because the mesh design is a lifesaver when dealing with a round in a 105 degree weather. I give the overall look of the TW Mesh golf shoes a 10/10 not only because they look good but because Nike made a great product for summer golf.

Comfort 10/10

The golf shoe created for the athlete does exactly what it was meant to do by delivering a super comfortable shoe that can handle walking the longest of courses even in extremely hot conditions. The TW Mesh is my golf to shoe this summer because you can barely feel them on your feet since they are featherlight. Nike took the Nike Free technology in their training shoes and put them into a shoe that could help you play golf from morning until night. So if you are looking for one of the most comfortable golf shoes on the market than make sure to stop by your local golf shop and give them a try. I give the overall comfort a 10/10 rating.

Grip 8/10tiger woods mesh sole

The new TW14 Mesh shoes take the same type of grip technology as the Nike FI Impact golf shoes with the low profile traction control that will provide you enough grip to prevent slippage on the course. Having grip is very important to the golf swing to give you a solid foundation to help you deliver powerful drives that will help you smash your competition on the links. The only drawback of these shoes is that they don’t come with the feature of golf spikes that help give maximum grip on the course. For the future I hope they make these shoes with the same sole as the regular TW golf shoe. Overall I give the grip a 8/10 rating.

Overall Rating 28/30

Nike and Tiger Woods golf shoes have been a match made in heaven for years. Every single pair I own of TW shoes I have ever owned have always been the most comfortable, best looking, groundbreaking golf shoes on the market every year. I believe the TW line especially in the golf shoes delivers a product that you feel like your money was spent wisely because every round you log in these shoes you know you had maximum comfort all 18 holes while your buddy still complains his feet kill after every round when buying other brands. So if you have been looking for a great summer golf shoe than look no further because the Tiger Woods Mesh Golf shoe has come to the rescue. CLICK HERE TO BUY NOW

Product Information:

Designed for Tiger Woods, the Nike TW ’14 Mesh Men’s Golf Shoe helps you unleash the full power of your swing with a Nike-Free inspired outsole that offers incredible flexibility from the ground up. It updates the previous version with an ultra-breathable upper, while Dynamic Flywire remains for adaptable support on the course.

Flexibility

The Nike Free-inspired outsole offers increased flexibility and full athletic motion. It’s designed to mimic and conform to the natural motion of the foot, allowing you to keep contact with the ground longer, supplying more power through your golf swing.

Ventilation

A combination of mesh and TPU offers enhanced breath ability while reducing the overall weight of the shoe for total comfort in hot conditions.

Glove-like Fit

Nike Dynamic Flywire technology cradles the foot for an adaptive, glove-like fit. Flywire consists of ultra-light yet sturdy cables that hug and move with the foot during your swing, stabilizing it while allowing for full mobility.

More Power Control

The forefoot design helps provide optimal traction and power control. The Nike Power Transfer Zone in the midsole offers better balance, smoother weight transfer and more power through impact.

Nike TW ’14 Origins

Tiger Woods prefers training in shoes that feature Nike Free technology. “I love training in it, running in it, lifting in it,” he said. “So I asked, why can’t I play golf in it?” With that, Nike designers set to work creating a Nike Free-inspired golf shoe tailored to maximize Woods’ game-and now yours. This innovative golf shoe allows athletes to keep contact with the ground longer, better harnessing the energy of the foot to the shoe and, therefore, the shoe to the ground.

Nike Free Origins

After learning that Stanford athletes had been training barefoot on the university’s golf course, three of Nike’s most innovative and creative employees set out to develop a shoe that felt natural and weightless, similar to bare feet. In 2002, they examined a group of men and women with pressure-measuring insoles taped to their feet, using high-speed cameras to capture images of each foot in motion.

The team spent eight years studying the biomechanics of shoeless running. The results yielded a profound understanding of the foot’s natural landing angle, pressure and toe position, allowing Nike designers to build an unconventional and flexible running shoe from the inside out.

More Benefits

  • Waterproof microfiber synthetic leather upper for durability and a great fit
  • Integrated Traction for low-profile stability, maximum ground feel and comfort

1.  Nike VRS Covert 2.0 DriverVR_S_Covert2_Driver_BEAUTY_CMYK_original

The Nike VR_S Covert 2.0 Driver features an enhanced cavity back design with new Fly-Brace technology to deliver faster ball speed and greater forgiving distance with every shot.

Longer Shots

The Nike VR_S Covert 2.0 improves on its predecessor with a re-engineered High Speed Cavity Back design for increased distance and more stability. With all-new Fly-Brace technology, the rear portion of the club is reinforced so that more energy is transferred to the face at impact. The result: even greater ball speed and up to six yards of distance gain compared to the previous model.

Adjustability

The FlexLoft adjustability system allows you to customize your loft and face angle positions independently of each other to optimize launch and spin conditions for maximum distance and accuracy. This simple pull, turn, push-and-tighten system offers loft and face angle positions for 15 drivers in one club to meet the demands of your game.

More Speed

The seven-percent larger NexCOR face incorporates variable face thickness for a faster, hotter face and, subsequently, more ball speed at impact.

More Benefits

  • Head adjustable from 8.5 to 12.5 degrees of loft and three face angle positions
  • Kuro Kage Black HBP graphite 50 shaft with a higher balance point for higher swing speeds without adding shaft length
