Golf Pitching Wedge Review
Cleveland 588 RTX Wedge
Golf equipment review for the Cleveland 588 RTX Wedge
Cleveland's new 588 Rotex (RTX) wedge series has been launched with two types in the family – the 588 RTX CB and the Tour-ready 588 RTX.
Both benefit from the Rotex pattern on the face, which features Tour Zip Grooves that are 16 per cent larger than the 2010 model and a rougher, more durable laser milling for greater friction and spin. The U-Groove design also helps deliver more control in wet conditions and from sand.
The CB version features a structural cavity which adds a touch of forgiveness, while the non-CB wedge has been engineered from a soft carbon steel for greater feel off the face, which will please better players.
This is one of the most exciting Cleveland launches we can remember and we can’t wait to give the clubs a try. The wedges in particular have long been central cogs in the Cleveland machine. In recent years they have produced some classics and these look likely to follow suit.
