Robert J. Bettinardi has taken his wedge line to a new level of performance with a perfected redesign of technology and appearance in his all-new Bettinardi HLX 5.0 Forged Wedges. The HLX 5.0 Forged Wedges aim to provide a greater focus on player performance and versatility for any wedge shot, in all conditions.
FEATURES & BENEFITS
FORGED FROM STEEL
Engineered and crafted from Soft Carbon Steel, each HLX 5.0 Wedge is forged. As opposed to casting, our forged method proves to be a more premium and superior way to make a much softer feeling wedge, preferred by professional golfers worldwide.
HIGH HELIX CUT GROOVES
The all-new face of the HLX 5.0 utilizes our patented High Helix Cut machining tool, allowing Robert to engineer and craft his softest forged wedge face to date. By using this process, the machine cuts the metal at such a high rate that generates a more pronounced groove depth, creating maximum spin on the golf ball and making the HLX 5.0 the ultimate wedge for controlling your spin.
RAISED CENTER OF GRAVITY
The 2023-2024 HLX 5.0 wedge features a ladder milling on the back flange and sole, which is a re-engineer of the Honeycomb milling on the HLX 3.0. By re-engineering the HLX 5.0 with a finer ladder milling, the center of gravity in each head was pushed up by 5%. By utilizing this finer milling technique, we were able to keep more weight on the flange, which raises the CG and helps golfers promote a lower trajectory wedge shot and ultimately improve their short game. This master-crafted enhancement allows for Tour quality shot flighting and uncontested control around the greens.
The HLX 5.0 Forged wedge series will offer players the choice of the best, most premium components to complete the buildout of their new Bettinardi wedges. Starting with three Tour grade shaft options; choose from a KBS High Rev, True Temper S200 & S400, or the Nippon Pro Modus 115. All wedges will be paired with a custom Bettinardi Crosstour Soft Gray and Black Lamkin grip for added control with patented vibration-dampening technology for a superior surface tack that adapts to all weather conditions.
