RTX 6 ZipCore / RTX Full Face

Hot List Gold 2023

Our Review:

WHAT IT DOES: Cleveland’s innovative ZipCore technology involves removing weight from the lower heel area and using it elsewhere. In this latest update, 21 grams are redistributed to increase the moment of inertia (forgiveness) to mitigate the loss of distance on mis-hits, particularly on shots struck high on the face. 

WHY WE LIKE IT: Although ZipCore is a true game changer, it would be criminal to overlook the new face finish that uses blast media and laser patterns. It is applied differently for low lofts (46 and 48 degrees), middle lofts (50 and 52) and high lofts (54 through 60). The idea behind the varying applications is to produce consistent spin between the wet and dry conditions—something all you dewsweepers out there can benefit from.  Read more>>>

Player Comments
Low-Handicapper
"Nice teardrop head shape. The leading edge is in line with the hosel. Great bounce. The sole glided through the dirt. It lets you know when you make solid contact. Has a lot of zip on full shots."
Handicap, +4
Medium-Handicapper
"Especially useful and effective out of the sand. Able to launch at desired height and anticipated rollout. Receptive to how I wanted to hit it."
Handicap, 8
High-Handicapper
“Instills confidence on every kind of short shot. You always feel under control. You could stop the ball on a basketball court.”
Handicap, 14
