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.

        You are correct my friend. Perks of being in the golf business.

    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

    Looks like a Cleveland CG15 with a milled face

Favorite brand of fairway woods – GolfWRXers discuss

Published

on

In our forums, our members have been talking fairway woods. WRXer ‘New_Guy’ is on the hunt for a new 5 and 7-wood and wants to know what brand our members consider to be the best when it comes to FWs. Our members have been sharing their thoughts in our forum, with plenty of companies getting a mention.

Here are a few posts from the thread, but make sure to check out the entire discussion and have your say at the link below.

  • layrs14: “I’ve played Cobra fairways for a couple of years (F9, SZ, Radspeed) and really like them. Cobra tends to have a real crack like sound compared to the Titleist and Callaway woods I have hit. This year I tried out a TSi2 7w, based entirely on high praise for the TSi fairways and ability to adjust loft and lie, something the Cobra line lacks. Lofted down to 20.25*, and it’s been great. Epic Max is also solid as long as you don’t mind the bonded hosel.”
  • PEIGolfer: “Most consistent I’ve played through the lines has been Titleist and TEE, thus what gets that spot in the bag.”
  • Lasorcier: “I’ll go with Mizuno. I am very high on my STz 3-wood. I wish they made a 5-wood.”
  • pgatw: “Ping, hard to beat the 425 series, especially if need them set to a flat lie.”
