New Cleveland CG15 wedges

By: Darren Ramowski | Thu 19 Nov 2009

Why Spin Matters

The new Cleveland CG15 wedges feature the most advanced wedge technology Cleveland Golf has introduced in almost a decade.

The secret lies in the combination of a Laser milled face and Zip grooves that offer the ultimate control with the
highest spin level ever reached in a Cleveland Golf wedge.

Using the precision accuracy of a laser, four perfectly calibrated texture lines are milled between each groove,
exactly to the conforming roughness limit. This breakthrough surface roughness application optimises ball-toface
friction and maximises spin under The Rules of Golf*.

“The precision of the laser allows us to exactly calibrate the depth/geometry of the laser markings,” said Scott
Carlyle, Cleveland Golf’s Global Business Unit Leader for wedges. “We adjusted the settings to get right to the
limit of the USGA & R&A rules for surface roughness that states that the maximum ‘peak trough’ value on the
surface roughness can be 0.001. We consistently mark it about 0.0008 – 0.0009 – right at the limit.”

The larger ZIP groove volume (25% larger than conventional grooves) channels the most debris possible out of
the groove at impact to improve contact and maximise spin. “As the face of the wedge naturally wears, the
Laser Milled technology keeps roughness longer,” added Carlyle. “This provides friction and grip between the
face and the golf ball.”

The CG15 wedge is available in three distinct finishes: Chrome, Black Pearl and Oil Quench. There is also a
Dynamic Sole Grind version available only in Oil Quench finish with multiple bounce options.

CG15 Wedges


* More precise and consistent surface roughness than alternative methods.
* Optimises surface roughness to maximise spin.

* Breakthrough milling technology creates 25% bigger grooves with pristine edges.
* Increases ‘ZIP’ and shot consistency – especially from poor lies.

* Wider sole width near the heel, narrow sole width near the toe.
* Improves bunker performance without sacrificing versatility.

* Slightly softer tip section, slightly stiffer mid and butt sections.
* Improves feel and responsiveness without sacrificing full-shot consistency.
