Cleveland Golf 588 RTX 2.0 CUSTOM EDITION Wedge Review
The Cleveland Golf 588 RTX 2.0 CUSTOM EDITION wedges retail for $130(MSRP) and what makes them different from the regular 588 RTX 2.0 is the fact that you can, well, customize their appearance, visually speaking, setting you apart from the rest of the crowd.
In these babies, Cleveland Golf's craftsmanship is at its finest and if you're a fashion conscious golfer, these wedges have your name on them! Design and customizing options aside, the Cleveland Golf 588 RTX 2.0 CUSTOM EDITION features 3 sole grinds which are engineered to match your specific playing conditions/your swing pattern. These 3 distinctive sole grinds have been developed together with 2 different head designs, for optimizing the short game, suiting all types of golfers, regardless their skill level/handicap. Basically, these wedges are as versatile as they come, boasting a very-forgiving cavity back design and, for the better players out there, the old-school muscle back head shape. When it comes to feel, the Cleveland Golf 588 RTX 2.0 CUSTOM EDITION wedge is built using a cast design and it feels a tad heavier than its premium competitors. That's not a bad thing in my book, it all depends upon personal preference. Performance wise, the Cleveland Golf 588 RTX 2.0 CUSTOM EDITION wedge offers consistent yardage, round after round, excellent spin rate and it feels like a solid blade.
After playing a few rounds with this baby I found that anyone cruising the market looking for a versatile piece of golf gear which offers top of class spin, a soft feel and classic looks should seriously consider the Cleveland Golf 588 RTX 2.0 . The best feature of these wedges, in this writer's opinion, is the amazing forgiveness when it comes to off center strikes and the outstanding stopping power from different lies, characteristics derived from their clever design, i.e. the fully milled faces and improved grooves. Bottom line, the Cleveland Golf 588 RTX 2.0 are truly dependable wedges, that offer you various ways to play your favorite game, shot after shot, round after round. These wedges feel focused and fluid at impact, the blade is very responsive, even acrobatic, the big cavity bag has a humongous sweet spot and a very stable and solid weight distribution. Bottom line, the Cleveland Golf 588 RTX 2.0 wedges are among the best I've ever tested and they're definitely a must-try, as they fit a wide range of playing conditions and abilities.
