Coming February 26, 2011 Cleveland will be releasing their all new Japan Only CG-F2 Wedge. Every year Cleveland usually releases one Japan Only club which is usually forged and “Made in Japan”. If your a cleveland fan and want the best they have to offer for 2011 you can’t miss this.
Tech & Sales data in the U.S for 2010 show one of every ten wedges sold in America & Japan is produced by Cleveland Golf. Besides being produced in Japan some of the changes are more evolutionary than revolutionary. Cleveland Golf has found a way to significantly enhance spin performance over the previous model by adjusting the stance and rounding the head shape. The Cleveland CG-F2 Forged is geared to work for a wide range of golfers from average player to professional.
Sakura Yokomine one of Japan’s famed female professional golfers (Srixon Sponsored Player) has just recently put the new CG-F2 into play. Translated her comments were ” It’s easy to be poised with its good sized face area, Even softer hitting feel that makes the ball rise and spin a lot. It can even handle the most difficult pin positions and bunkers.”
By straighting the leading edge and neck it allows any player to square up their stance with confidence. Forgiveness was key in the design creating a medium sized head and face with all the player qualities like minimal offset and top line to satisfy all levels. It’s wide spread sole is uniform for increased stability and direction which reduces the amount of duffed shots and silly mistakes.
Made in Japan of soft forged iron and utilizing Cleveland’s face milling laser cutting recipe it comes standard with DG S200 or NS Pro 950. Available in 50/8, 52/8, 56/10/14, 58/8/12, 60/8 degree loft/bounce combinations the NS Pro has a swing balance of D3 while the S200 comes in at D4.
Look forward to the pre sale being listed in the TSG Proshop this January!
