Bettinardi Golf is proud to unveil its newest line of wedges, the HLX 5.0. The HLX 5.0 Forged Wedges have been crafted with a perfected redesign of technology and appearance, providing a greater focus on player performance that includes a lower launch trajectory and exceptional spin control.
The 2023-2024 HLX 5.0 Forged Wedges feature a new face that utilizes a patented High Helix Cut machining tool, which mills a more pronounced groove depth to make the HLX 5.0 the ultimate wedge for controlling spin. According to the nation’s leading club fitter, Bettinardi HLX wedges consistently perform with 10% more spin and 12% lower launch than the top wedge manufacturers in golf.
Additionally, by re-engineering the ladder milling on the back flange, the center of gravity in each HLX 5.0 head was raised by 5%. This master-crafted enhancement allows for Tour quality shot flighting and uncontested control around the greens.
“By utilizing this finer milling technique, we were able to keep more weight on the flange, which raises the center of gravity and helps golfers achieve a lower-flighted shot.” said Sam Bettinardi, President of Bettinardi Golf. “Since 1998, Bettinardi Golf has been known for making the finest putters in the world, and we are so proud to continue to evolve our wedges and push the envelope on design, craftsmanship and quality."
“Forging our HLX 5.0 Wedges from soft carbon steel, as opposed to casting, gives consumers and Tour players the premium feel that they have come to expect from the Bettinardi name," says Robert Bettinardi, CEO/Founder of Bettinardi Golf. "Since the inception of our forged wedge line in 2014, each generation of wedges has continued to evolve with additional finishes, lofts, grinds and technology, which has made Bettinardi a proven player in the wedge category."
The HLX 5.0 Forged Wedges are offered in both a Chrome and Graphite PVD finish, with the addition of a 48 degree wedge and a 54 degree loft RJ Grind. The HLX 5.0 Forged Wedges will be available for pre-order on Tuesday, October 25th online at Bettinardi.com, and will be available for purchase at authorized Bettinardi dealers worldwide, starting on November 16th.
