met with my Cleveland rep today... IMO the Classic in black is much much better looking then the current color scheme. while i loved the old look originally, it just didn't perform up to my standards in my shop this year.

rotex wedge faces look nice.

also there is gonna be 4 models of the 588 this year
more cavity type 588
a game improvement one
the current 588
then a DSG players version

also getting cleveland classic black fairways at 15.5 degrees.

i have cleveland catalog at work if anyone wants me to post pics.

Yes, driver on left not only has custom on toe, I'm guessing paint and such, but it has an adjustable weight and interchangable shaft. They also look to have fixed some of the problems people like me had with them (gold face coming up over crown, red paint). They should call this the Retro instead of classic, I like it.

Very nice, A few observations:

Release date 2-2013

New Miyazaki B.Asha shafts in the Classic XL

New Miyazaki JDL shafts in the Classic XL Custom

Two forged face cavity backs in the 588 line in addition to the CB and MB

Forgiving wedge ala CG14/CG16
[/quote]

RTX CB wedge and forged DSG available in November, Altitude irons also November. Best part? The new irons are all built off of same specs, so mixed sets will be easy.

Can leave out that you can get a Matix Black Tie 6m3 as an option! That's pretty huge and should make a great looking and performing combo!

Fubuki at no upcharge as well.

the rotex face is sick, its really going to give the usga nightmares. It conforms to all their guidlines, but its specifically designed to create crazy amounts of spin on short shots (chips, out of the rough, open faced shots and bunkers). The tour will get them after the FedEx cup...it should be fun to watch.

New 588 iron family (altitude, MT and TT) are all interchangeable a customizable as a split set...and the 588 Altitude is the first hybrid that is bendable in a mitchel loft and lie machine.

Plus, the Classic HB putter line is the hidden gem of the new line.
