Summary: Great wedge. Read one guy's review that said its feels like a walmart knockoff, well then the walmart he's shopping at sells one hell of a wedge. Great feel from this club, and longer than most wedges because of the longer shaft. Great around the greens letting you play any kind of shot you want. Puts great amounts of spin on the ball with all those shots too. The color of the face does change after use, but who cares how it looks when it performs this good.

Summary: The CG12 Black Pearl is a zoomy club! The zip grooves don't really make that much of a noticeable difference in performance. It's the slightly longer shaft that really rockets the ball into a surprisingly high trajectory. This requires adjustments. I needed a 52-degree gap wedge. But after trying the CG 12 once, I realized that it delivered the same distance as my pitching wedge.
The small spoony head also made it harder to hit than a teardrop-shaped club. The scratches on the clubface after one brief practice session didn't help either. And its clunky feedback felt more like a Wal-Mart knockoff.
So I immediately exchanged the Black Pearl for a Titleist spin-milled Vokey. Man oh man! What a beautiful difference in feel, playability and craftmanship. Neither the balls, nor my game, have suffered from its extra spin: true zip!

Summary: A few reviews said this wedge doesn't spin the ball much...you guys need a lesson! This thing spins the ball as much as a Vokey!!! My buddy got his 2 years ago, plays 3+ days a week and the grooves are fine...still spins the ball like a top! I just got mine last week and LOVE IT! You won't regret getting one.
Summary: Have played Clev weg's for yrs. I love the black pearl(50,56 &60)helps/sun. The control is what I would expect. Spin in combo/ correct ball is 10 out of 10. Confidence sums up how I feel about these clubs. Only weg's that compare are T Volky's....
