Roger Cleveland is a legend in the world of wedges, so when he designs a new wedge, you know it’s a good one. The new Callaway X Series Jaws CC wedges are Cleveland’s latest creation. The wedges debut Callaway’s Tour CC grooves that can only be found in Callaway’s forged wedges and irons, which in theory at least, gives Callaway a leg (or groove) up on its competitors.
The forging process, of course, provides a softer feel around the greens, but the real deal is the 21 grooves on the wedges versus the traditional 15 wedges. The 21 grooves mean a player can get more traction on the ball, which translates into more spin and control.
Just as intriguing, Callaway has new bounce options in the X Series Jaws CC wedges (suggested retail price $119), featuring soles that have been individually designed for maximum versatility. For example, a zero bounce option is now offered in the 58- and 60-degree wedges – great for tight lies around the green and within 50 to 60 yards of the green. An eight-degree bounce is offered in 58- and 60-degree wedges as well. In addition to low bounce options in the higher lofts, the Jaws CC wedges (suggested retail price $119) also are available with reduced bounce offerings at 52, 54 and 56 degrees.
