The Cleveland CG16 wedge looks very similar to the CG14 wedge but without the insert and it is not surprising given that it comes from the same mould.

However the colour insert has been replaced with a cavity back and this not only looks better but also improves stability and forgiveness on off-centre hits.

Compared to the excellent CG15 wedge the leading edge is less rounded and the sole is wider. Cleveland say that this style of wedge is very popular on Tour, especially in the sand iron lofts.

However we were not as keen as the extra forgiveness has meant a trade off on feel, which is not as crisp as the CG15 wedge and the wider was not as effective on softer lies.

With respect to the tour, we feel that these are good wedges for aspiring mid handicappers and those who want more forgiveness from a wedge they use a lot from the fairway, but what do we know...

The CG16 has gone back to a straighter address line, which I like a lot. The Black Pearl finish looked great behind the ball and feedback from the club was excellent. Wish I had waited for these wedges instead of buying the CG14s.
