The CG14 wedge ws introduced in 2007′ and included the Zip Grooves and the advanced manufacturing process.  In addition, Cleveland announced the “Gelback Technology” to the design.  The Gelback is a visco-elastic, vibration-dampening material.  The intent of the Gelback is to remove unnecessary vibration on mis-hits, while allowing the player the necessary feedback from the club head, adding a soft yet responsive feel.  The CG14 is considered by all counts, a game improvement wedge, that of which take on a more “forgiving” nature, much like the CG11.

Player Profile-

The Cleveland CG14 is geared more for the good recreational player looking for a bit more in the lines of forgiveness in a wedge.  This is not to say the better player can’t see benefits from the CG14 – this is the furthest from the truth.  However the scratch player is more apt to lean toward the classic style wedge.  The CG14 has more of a game-improvement likeness to it.


Very forgiving wedge.  The gelback technology offers an unparalled vibration-dampening element that well… nobody really comes close to.


None really, other than it does not have a classic design.  But with this forgiveness and dampening quality, who needs conventional?

Actual Player Feedback-

“I can’t imagine any wedge better than this. It makes all my others obsolete, including the Vokey SM”

Overall Rating-

Superb wedge.  As mentioned, it may not be of class design.  But if you are looking for game improvement wedge that produces easier shots around the green, the Cleveland CG14 is your ticket wedge. Return to Golf Gear Select Home.
