Cleveland 588 RTX 2.0 Wedges

Published

on

Cleveland is promising golfers 15 percent more spin with its new 588 RTX 2.0 wedges, which have deeper, sharper grooves and a rougher face pattern to help golfers stop their wedge shots closer to the hole.

The 588 RTX 2.0 wedges are available in two finishes: Black Satin and Tour Satin.

The new grooves are the fourth generation of the company’s “Tour Zip Grooves,” and are 8 percent deeper than the previous version and have sharper side walls to channel more grass, dirt and moisture from the clubface for cleaner contact.

The 588 RTX 2.0 wedges also feature Cleveland’s new Rotex 2.0 face pattern, a two-pass micro milling pattern that offers more face roughness. The third step in the process is the company’s Laser Milling technique, which pushes the surface roughness of the wedges to the USGA’s legal limit to create more spin on pitch and chip shots, according to Cleveland.

The 588 RTX wedges are available in three soles designs: 1 DOT (low bounce grind), 2 DOT (standard bounce grind) and 3 DOT (full sole). Click the photos below to enlarge them and learn more about Cleveland’s sole grinds.

The 588 RTX 2.0 wedges ($129) are available in lofts of 46 to 64 degrees (learn more in the detailed specs below) in Cleveland’s Black Satin and Tour Satin finishes.

They come stock with True Temper’s Dynamic Gold Wedge shaft or Cleveland’s 90-gram Rotex graphite wedge shaft.

The 588 RTX wedges are also available in a slightly larger more forgiving cavity back version that is available in the same specs as the blade-style 588 RTX 2.0 wedges, as well as in a women’s cavity back design that offers shorter shafts and lighter swing weights.

    It’s a wedge, important but not exciting. Is golf this boring that this makes front page news

      Not exciting? I hole out more often with my wedges than any other club (excluding putter). From 120yds and in the so called “scoring zone” shots are all executed with wedges. Ive never holed out with a driver and very seldom with my irons; but have chipped in many times, suggesting maybe we should pay more attention to our wedge selection.

        Exactly they are important but not exciting. Thanks for making my point.

          steve – if you don’t find scoring exciting, you should probably stop browsing golf blogs.

            If you find wedges exciting then maybe you should get a life

          didnt make your point…actually proved mine. What more exciting than holing out? I hit good drives all the time. Rarely do my playing partners high five me for a good drive. However, on more than one occasion from holing out around the green or from inside of 120 that I have had my playing partners come up or yell and then go for the high five. Sounds like you dont do much holing out. Thats probably why your having a hard time seeing my point.

            I bet that prius you drive is exciting. A hot new girlfriend, a new sports car, betting large amounts in stocks or sports is exciting. Getting a new wedge or chipping in and giving high fives is not exciting for me. Thank god I am not you

            Mother of god steve you are mind-numbingly stupid. Short game is the most exciting part of golf. Seeing that ball drop and suddenly stop close to the pin is a very exciting feeling, and if you can’t understand the excitement behind new Wedge technology that will help players do that better and more often, then please leave these forums with your childish, 12 year old comments.

    I have 50 and 60 in the bag, Still waiting on 54. Just got them. They resemble more of the old 588 which is why it was an easy switch for me. I love the feedback around the greens, and the grind on mid bounce 60*10. As, I am a steep player who also manipulates face angle around the greens. The 10 degrees of bounce gives me better turf interaction on distance shots from 40-80 yds than my prevous wedge with less bounce. While the heel / toe trailing edge relief provides the versatility around the greens I need with an open club face.

    I don’t know about you guys, but I actually like the head shape of the CG15.

      I like the cg15 as well…play everything, but play the cg10 more often than anything else.

    … BLAH, very boring I agree a CG 15 with a ‘milled face’ bet they still want 120 for it

Scotty Cameron unveils new MonoBlok 6 and MonoBlok 6.5 putters

Published

on

Scotty Cameron has today introduceed the new MonoBlok 6 and MonoBlok 6.5 putters.

Made in a limited run and inspired by the continued success of tour professionals playing previous generation GOLO models on the worldwide tours, these rounded mallets are reminiscent of GOLO designs, yet offer a new, sought-after head size in two, purpose-specific neck and shaft configurations.

Inspired by an iconic automotive wheel crafted from a single block of metal, Scotty named these MonoBlok to celebrate his tradition of milling putters from solid 303 stainless steel.

MonoBlok 6

With its rounded compact mallet shape based on earlier GOLO putters, the MonoBlok 6 is sized in between the GOLO 5 and 7 models with a mid-bend shaft for a nearly face balanced setup.

Precision milled from a single block of 303 stainless steel, the MonoBlok 6 has an integrated sole plate machined from 6061 aircraft aluminum. Seamlessly fused to the body, this configuration allowed Scotty to design more solid stainless steel into the face and perimeter in a bid to increaseMOI, balance and feel.

The limited release MonoBlok 6 has a solid face, misted stainless steel finish, adjustable performance balanced stainless steel sole weighting and includes a Pistolero Plus grip and a MonoBlok headcover.

MonoBlok 6.5

With the same dimensions as the MonoBlok 6, Scotty’s new MonoBlok 6.5 was designed with a jet neck for players who favor a putting stroke with a bit of toe flow.

The key to maintaining the same size, shape and overall head weight with a different neck is the integrated sole plate. Precision milled from 6061 aircraft aluminum and lightly misted with clear anodization, this engineered component allows the solid stainless steel to be distributed properly in design for increased MOI, balance and feel.

The limited release MonoBlok 6.5 has a solid face, misted stainless steel finish, adjustable performance balanced stainless steel sole weighting and includes a Pistolero Plus grip and a MonoBlok headcover. A small number of left-handed MonoBlok 6.5 putters will also be offered.

Scotty Cameron Limited Release MonoBlok putters will be available at Titleist golf shops worldwide on Oct. 7, 2022 and are priced at $650 each.
