Review: Cleveland 588 Forged RTG Wedge
With an aggressive sole grind that allows players to open the face without raising the leading edge off the ground (helping keep contact crisp on open-face shots), the 588 Forged RTG is aimed at the 10-handicap-and-under player. Keegan Bradley and other Cleveland staffers had them in their bags early on.
The retro look of the 588 lines combined with the forged feel of 1025 carbon steel and the Tour Zip grooves make this wedge one sweet performer. No tricked-out shafts and grips here; Cleveland sticks with classics, the Dynamic Gold S300 and Lamkin Crossline grip (custom options are available). A handsome oil quench finish that rusts over time completes the look.
If you're looking for a forged wedge club with stopping power as good as anything on the market, this is one to check out.
