Cleveland Golf 588 RTX 2.0 TOUR SATIN Wedge Review
The Cleveland Golf 588 RTX 2.0 TOUR SATIN retails for $129 (MSRP) and it represents yet another version of an already well-established wedge. With the Tour Satin, Cleveland Golf is committed to offer their customers additional control levels and a boost in versatility for producing lower scores. The improved control is the signature of the Rotex Face, a Cleveland Golf proprietary technology, and the end result is consistent spin in all imaginable conditions, together with the 3 new/versatile sole grinds, which are aimed at pleasing a wide variety of player types. I must emphasize the Rotex thing, the main selling point of the 588 RTX 2.0 TOUR SATIN, a technology which really revolutionized the face of spin in golf; now with the second generation (the 2.0), I must admit that it took spin control to unprecedented levels. The incredible spin control is a trait of the specially designed face pattern, i.e. the micro laser-milled Rotex technology that works in tandem with deeper grooves, for creating a wedge with the most surface roughness you can find on the market today.
Design wise, the 588 RTX 2.0 TOUR SATIN features a classic, old-school look at address, boasting its tear-drop shaped wedge and the rounded leading edge/toe. When it comes to sound and feel, you'll be pleasantly surprised by the wedge's muted yet firm click, both for the blade and cavity versions. After taking this baby for a spin on the golf course, I discovered that Cleveland's Golf marketing meets reality in the field; I mean, the RTX 2.0 wedge really delivers high, consistent spin shot after shot. Bottom line, if you don't want to waste your shots around the green anymore, I can hardly recommend something else besides the 588 RTX 2.0 TOUR SATIN wedges. There are hundreds of fitting locations around and you'll be able to find your perfect combo, by trying different soles, lofts, shafts and club styles, in order to achieve the ultimate/perfect combo for your game. Legendary looks just met legendary performance in the Cleveland Golf 588 RTX 2.0 TOUR SATIN and you can take that to the bank folks.
