Robert J. Bettinardi has taken his wedge line to a new level of performance with a total redesign of technology and appearance in his all-new HLX 3.0. Introducing the HLX 3.0, engineered and crafted from Soft Carbon Steel, a change from Robert’s previous H2 wedge line, aimed to provide players a much softer feel at impact, with a focus on greater versatility, control, and increased forgiveness for every variety of wedge shot needed – from approach to greenside lies.
Robert’s preferred C-Grind was reengineered to promote a higher toe and heel to promote added relief, clean contact, and give the player the most aggressive spin with an all-new face that removed 20% more additional surface metal to allow the ball to move past the center of gravity and produce a more aggressive spin with a more consistent distance control.
Robert’s most forgiving wedge line in his patented RJ-Grind wedge. Engineered for the player who seeks increased forgiveness on tight lies and much-needed bounce on square face shots, the HLX 3.0 RJ-Grind wedge with our highest measured bounce for players with a steep angle of attack. The RJ-Grind is the perfect wedge for players who are looking for a higher center of gravity and maximum spin when added control is needed alongside the greens.
The HLX 3.0 all-new appearance is offered in a clean, traditional Chrome finish and our all-new patented Black Smoke finish for the player who prefers a non-traditional appearance and more of a performance look at address. Each finish was tested to provide the player greater optics and glare-reducing finish in any course condition.
The HLX 3.0 wedge series will offer players the choice for 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 S400, or the Nippon Pro Modus 115. All wedges will be paired with a custom Bettinardi Crosstour Soft Grey and Black Lamkin grip for added control with patented vibration dampening technology for a superior surface tack, outstanding in all weather conditions.
All-New Face of The HLX 3.0
Using our patented High Helix Cut machining process, Robert was able to engineer and craft his softest forged wedge face with precision-milling techniques and optimizing process of removing material to generate just the right groove depth and spacing to push USGA limits, making the HLX 3.0 the most versatile wedge for players needing any kind of shot when it comes to their short game.
