Most players these days game a cavity back iron of some description, blades although beautiful are just beyond our ball striking capabilities.
At the scoring end of our bag we then go from cavity back wedge straight into a blade design wedge, makes no sense really, especially if you are using game improvement irons.
To bridge this gap, Callaway have unveiled its new CB wedge which is built to deliver short game forgiveness with incredible spin and feel. From player-friendly shaping, premium feel technologies, and one of the most aggressive grooves in golf with Jaws Groves, this profile is designed for players who want maximum confidence and forgiveness from their short game.
The cavity back design delivers a friendlier shape at address to benefit playability on all types of wedge shots. The larger head size and grooves across the face add confidence at address. On the sole, a pre-worn leading-edge acts like a skid plate to avoid digging, and it’s paired with higher bounce for even more forgiveness.
Callaway CB is the first Callaway Wedge to feature our Urethane Microspheres. They’re strategically placed behind the striking area of the face to enhance feel and sound, making the Callaway CB an incredible feeling cavity back wedge.
To cap it all off, Callaway CB is an absolute Spin Machine. The grooves have been treated with a face blast to enhance surface roughness on the face, helping to provide spin on short shots around the green. These grooves extend across the face to enable groove to ball contact at every impact location.

The True Temper Elevate 95 is the stock steel shaft, while graphite options are available from Project X Catalyst in 65g, and UST F1 in a WMS flex.
