Almost 20 years ago Cleveland Golf created what is debatably one the best wedges designs in history. During their sales meeting Cleveland Golf announced that they would be resurrecting this club and bringing it back with vengeance. The new 588 wedges will be a forged updated version of the classic. Made from 1025 carbon steel for a soft yet solid feel. Of course Cleveland who last use “Year of The Wedge” as their theme will now be using “Forging A Better Future”. The wedges will come with Cleveland’s standard Tour Zip Grooves and a Laser Milled face. In a partnership with True Temper Cleveland created a special shaft for the 588 forged wedges. Said to have a unique stiffness with a less active tip, it’s a shaft that promotes piercing ball flight with better spin and distance control.
The 1st 588 wedge design has been a standard for Cleveland wedges over the decades and remains so today. With tour-proven wins it’s one of the best selling wedges of all time. Now coming back with new technology to grace another generation. Cleveland has been very good about updating fan favorites they recently re-launched one of their extremely successful hybrids, The Cleveland Mashie.
The new 588 forged wedge will come in 10 different lofts between 46-64 degrees with the option of a black pearl finish or high polish chrome. The release date of the 588 wedge is set for mid-Novemeber.
