Cleveland Golf launch new 588 TX CB and 588 RTG wedges

By: | Tue 27 Nov 2012


Cleveland Golf have announced it’s new range of 588 RTX CB wedges and 588 Forged RTG wedges. Dubbed as the new face of spin, 588 RTX wedges combine the historic performance of 588 with Cleveland Golf’s latest technology breakthrough, the Rotex Face.

Rotex Technology

The Rotex face is a directionally milled face pattern that adds roughness and imparts maximum spin on open-face wedge shots where the impact tends to be closer to the toe. With a more durable and advanced form of laser milling, the Rotex face now creates more friction at impact, Cleveland suggest that this helps golfers generate even more spin on chips, pitches and partial shots from any lie.

588 RTX wedges also feature 16% larger U-Grooves to maximise spin on critical scoring shots – especially out of the rough, sand and in wet conditions.

588™ RTX CB

The 588 RTX CB wedge features a reverse C Sole design. Inspired by Cleveland Golf's popular CG14 and CG16 wedges, it is a wide, constant-width sole combined with heel and toe grinds to improve performance from bunkers and deep rough. The undercut cavity promotes perimeter weighting for more forgiveness on off-centre hits.

588 RTX CB wedges are fitted with the True Temper Dynamic Gold shaft and are available in the popular Satin Chrome and Black Pearl finishes for £109.

588™ Forged RTG

The 588 Forged RTG wedge is aimed at the more experienced golfer. Available in a Raw Tour Grind model, it features a dynamic sole for maximum versatility around the green. This wedge maintains the legendary, tour-proven shape of 588 with incredible Precision Forged feel.

Material reduction on the back of the Dynamic Sole Grind allows players to open the face with a lower leading edge for better contact on open-faced shots. The 588 Forged RTG is available in an Oil Quench finish that will rust over time for an authentic look.

Forged from 1025 carbon steel the 588 Forged RTG wedge offers an incredibly soft, yet solid feel around the greens with maximum control thanks to the laser milling and Tour Zip Grooves™ of the 588 Forged wedges for just £119.
