Cleveland CBX2/Full Face

The Verdict: The MD5’s primary objective is providing more spin on the partial shots as you get closer to the green. Rather than traditional vertical-groove walls, the grooves on the higher lofts feature walls that angle away from the base, exposing the edges for better grab. Milled ridges between the grooves also help with spin. A new low-bounce version added to the company’s W-grind (wide sole) provides heel relief for the higher-lofted wedges. Read more >>
Loft: 23 options (46 to 64 degrees), 5 sole grinds, 2 finishes
Street Price: $160

Player Comments
  • high
    I could check it or roll it greenside. In the sand or thick rough, the ball comes out effortlessly.
  • low
    It goes through the turf well and flights down nicely. It's like you can feel the ball coming off the face just enough.
  • mid
    What struck me the most was greenside hitting some high, soft pitches—the ball lands noticeably softer than others, like it fell into a pillow and just trickles out. That will get you out of a lot of jams.
