Cleveland has recently released some pictures of their all new 588 Forged wedges on Twitter. The satin finish definitely has a Titleist look to it – don’t you think? See the picture below, and read what Cleveland has to say about these new wedges:
Update: Cleveland released a press release today that provided us more details on these wedges (and some cool pictures). Enjoy the addition below.
Made from 1025 carbon steel, the 588 Forged wedge offers golfers an incredibly soft yet solid feel and less unwanted vibration. The advanced Precision Forging process ensures the highest level of part-to-part manufacturing consistency for supreme confidence and trust over every shot. The 588 Forged wedge’s Tour Zip Grooves™ and Laser Milled™ technology help to maximize spin in accordance with USGA regulations. Also, exclusive to the 588 Forged wedge is the Tour Concept steel shaft, co-developed and engineered by Cleveland Golf and industry leader True Temper. With a unique stiffness profile that features a less active tip, this shaft promotes a more penetrating ball flight, increased spin and optimal distance control along with superior feel.
“The confidence-inspiring shape of the original 588 wedge remains the standard by which all competitors’ wedges have been judged for more than 23 years, and attempting to build upon that benchmark is not a task we take lightly at Cleveland Golf,” said Todd Harman, President of Cleveland Golf/Srixon – U.S.A. “Our 588 wedge is the most popular wedge in the history of the game, and with sales in excess of 3 million units worldwide, it’s arguably the single most successful golf club ever brought to market. Our new 588 Forged wedge not only lives up to the 588 legacy, it takes Cleveland wedges to a whole new level.”
Available in Chrome and Satin finishes, Cleveland Golf’s 588 Forged wedges will begin shipping in November 2011 with a listed minimum advertised price of $139.99. Available in a variety of loft and bounce options, the 588 Forged wedge can also be personalized at MyCustomWedge.com with an array of color, logo, shaft and grind options.
