I've been quite stubborn with my wedges recently and after trying a new setup last year I ended up back with my MD low bounce wedges in the bag.
Well after a few months the itch got to me again, and Cleveland re-introduced the 588 Forged wedges after a couple years off the market. I was hooked from day one by the beautifully polished head (satin and black available too) with a nice shape and no pronounced leading edge like some wedges in the market, laser milled grooves to rip up those premium balls too!
Feels a little weightier than previous wedges I've tried, but you can even get a graphite shafted version is you want a lighter feeling. This wedge is a 56 degree, 14 degree bounce model, that bounce isn't noticeable at address and the sole grind even let's you open up the face a little too. Even on tighter lies it nips the ball cleanly, which is very encouraging coming into the drier months.
It spins with the best of them, and even 2-piece balls will stop quickly. It gives a good ball flight, probably a little lower than my current one, but that's probably because I don't tend to use it for full shots anymore. 70 yards, and in, and it's my go-to club.
Having a predictable distance from your wedge(s) is something everyone wants, to be able to get closer to the hole, and to lower your scores. If you’re looking for a great wedge, the Cleveland 588 forged is definitely a good choice, and with a huge choice of lofts, bounce, shafts, and finish I think everyone could find one they would like.
