They say:
The Cleveland Golf 588 RTX CB wedge, standing for the forgiving Cavity Back, has been designed especially for ladies with an extra forgiving, easy-to-use clubhead. It is a modern take on the classic 588 model and while it maintains the same great looks, it is packed full of innovative design features including a high-tech Rotex Face and advanced grooves designed to give you exceptional spin control within the rules of golf.

I say: Cleveland has long been renowned for producing the finest wedges in the business, extremely popular with Tour players, and anyone who knows their wedges will automatically recognise the 588 model, which has a great heritage and history in the game. This new version for ladies is a beautiful looking wedge. As a low handicapper I'm instantly drawn to the pleasing clubhead size and shape, just big enough to inspire confidence, yet small enough to manipulate so that I can sit the club open or square at address. The soft satin sheen suits my eye and doesn't give any awkward glare in the sunshine and best of all the spin control is amazing - from bunkers, from rough, from bare lies... I've had my doubts about the performance of new wedges since golf's governing bodies reigned in the advancements on grooves, but I can honestly say that these spin as well as any set I've played before or after the restrictions were introduced.
