Cleveland RTX 6 ZipCore Wedge review: NCG Summary
The RTX 6 ZipCore is Cleveland’s ‘blade wedge’. Designed for low to mid-handicappers it’s been pumped with technology that increases spin in all situations. Two extra grooves have been added from the previous RTX ZipCore and much more texture on the face.
Cleveland offers the RTX 6 ZipCore wedge in a range of different lofts and grinds meaning there is something to suit every golfer.
- Sleek design
- Great range of lofts and grinds
This is a great-looking wedge. I’ve been a lover of Cleveland wedges for a good few years now. I currently use a set of RTX ZipCore which is the previous generation to the new RTX 6 ZipCore wedges.
Design-wise Cleveland has made some subtle changes. The ZipCore and Cleveland wording has moved further up the back of the wedge. The face of the wedge has two extra grooves and much more texture than before.
The RTX 6 ZipCore is Cleveland’s answer to a ‘better players’ wedge. Centered around maximum spin and consistency, Cleveland has used a mixture of their UltiZip and HydroZip technologies to do this. With the addition of 2 extra grooves, the spacings between them has been tightened to allow for anything between the ball and club to have room to escape. UltiZip technology also means that the grooves are the sharpest yet in an RTX wedge. Cleveland’s use of HydroZip technology is all about how to wedge reacts to moisture.
As I previously mentioned I currently use a set of RTX 4 ZipCore wedges. For me, over the ball they look almost identical.
