What we say...
Late in 2011 we were the first to bring you news of Cleveland bringing back the legendary 588 wedge in a Forged version. Well, now they have decided to add two sets of irons to the famous model range.
The new 588 Forged CB irons are aimed firmly at the better player. They have been forged from 1025 carbon steel, a softer metal to enhance feel, and feature the same Tour Zip grooves and lasermilled faces as the 588 Forged wedges.
The laser-milled faces see four intricate score lines etched between each groove to maximise surface roughness for more spin. The Cleveland 588 Forged CB irons have a touch more offset than the MBs and a slightly longer blade length for added confi dence over the ball.
The CBs also feature a progressive cavity design with more of a pocket-cavity in the longer irons which evolves into a shallow cavity in the shorter scoring clubs. The set can be combined with the Cleveland 588 Forged MB irons to create a combo set and they both feature a new True Temper Tour Concept Steel shaft, which has been developed exclusively for Cleveland to offer a lower, more penetrating flight preferred by many better players.
