Cleveland RTX 6 ZipCore Wedge review: NCG Summary

4.5 star 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.

PROS

  • Sleek design
  • Great range of lofts and grinds
  • HydroZip technology

CONS

  • Less left handed loft options

First Impressions

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.

NCG Review

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.

The UltiZip technology used means that the spacings between the grooves have been tightened, allowing for anything i.e water, sand, or grass, between the club and the ball to escape better. The grooves are also the sharpest yet in an RTX wedge.

In order to increase the level of spin consistency, Cleveland has used their HydroZip technology. Each wedge has had a different level of face blast, depending on the loft. Higher lofts received more of a blast and more micro grooves, creating more texture on the face. This texture is there to help consistent spin and wet and dry conditions.

Overall, this is a classic Cleveland wedge that looks great and does exactly what it says it’s going to.
