RTX Zipcore/Full Face

What it does: The most important, paradigm-shifting aspect of this design is what you don’t see. A low-density compound fills up a section inside the lower heel. This removes the much heavier steel and redistributes that weight so that the centre of gravity is more in line with the face centre. This improves head stability for better spin and distance consistency across the face.  

Why we like it: Physics and engineering are really nice, but it’s all about the grooves, man. These feature a new focus on improving performance out of the rough. How? Highlights include sharper edges to better grab the ball, tighter spacing so that more grooves and edges meet the ball at impact, and deeper volume so that more of the grass can be channelled away for cleaner contact.

Specs 23 options (46-62 degrees); 7 sole grinds; 3 finishes

Reviewer profile

“Good out of the rough, especially with the fuller face. Extra surface area on the face really grabs the ball.”
