Cleveland took a different approach when it focused an entire wedge line on the 84 percent of golfers (its estimate) who play game-improvement irons. (Why play a blade wedge when you would never play blade irons, they asked.) The wedges emphasized forgiveness, shape, sole and even the shaft while retaining the tour-grabby grooves it’s known for.

This nudges the sweet spot toward the toe where Cleveland says average golfers tend to hit it, so even less-than-perfect shots feel pretty good.

Good weight, not too heavy or light. Easy to control. Consistent distance and just the right amount of spin. Lands softly.
Certainly very accurate with chips and did well getting spin in the rough. Very solid yet forgiving feel.
