Does the 588 RTX Black Pearl Finish Wear Badly?

Recommended Posts

If so, does it wear well? Does anyone have pictures of their 588 RTX Black Pearl wedges? I would like to see the wear on the color of the wedge. Thanks!

I have one, it wears VERY well. I have used this one for about 10 rounds. I will say this though, I find that the RTX face pattern gives you absolutely no more spin than any other wedge does. I prefer my wilson wedges to it honestly and the weighting on this makes it much more prone to skulling IMO.

Those look great. Do you do anything special to them before/during/after a round?

I don't have the RTX but I have 5 older black pearl Cleveland wedges. IMO the finish wear depends how it's used and the conditions used in. Just a few swings in the gnarly sand at my former home course and mine were pretty dinged up. A few trips to a driving range with a lot of bare ground scratched the finish from the soles. I have a 48* CG16 that has only been used in grass and it shows little wear. I've had my 52* longer and it shows significant wear, the face is a dull grey color with specks of the silver underneath starting to show. All have been used less than a year.
