Are the 588 MT irons replacing the CG16's?

Yes.

Looking closely at the 588 MT irons, it says "3, 4-PW, DW"....looks like they will offer a gap wedge type club in the same design as the rest of the irons, unlike their lineup today which only goes up to a PW (unless you buy their CG16 wedge line separately).

I wonder if the USGA etc. will live to regret letting this genie out the bottle? Regulating the grooves has forced designers to focus more on overall face roughness -- which is actually the more effective friction generator. It's possible we'll eventually end up with new-groove wedges that actually spin [i]more[/i].

Love the new stuff and looking forward to getting more cleveland clubs to keep my classics driver company. I hope they decide to have the raw finish in all of the wedge models. Love the fairways, nice shaft option. I wish the shaft was shorter, the length of shafts is getting out of control. Will have to get my custom order in early. Cant wait to get more details.

Ya but the face roughness doesn't last too long. XFT faces lost/lose the magic quickly.

Vokeys too.

Pings and CG15/16/588

I'll agree when I see a durable option.

Powerbilt had a wedge that had deep durable face milling and grooves. Doubt it conformed, but it spun too much.

i think it was a great move by cleveland by using the word classic, you have to do something to seperate yourself from the pack, you can laugh all you want at the white, rocketballz, 17 yards, spider, and other words, but it sells

and "classic" was something noone else was doing, it was quite the opposite, everyone was getting all flashy and new age, i hope they cement this as their premium line

Keep in mind that the original name of the company was Cleveland Classics.

don't understand how the groves can be 16% bigger I thought they already were using technology to get them to the closes tolerances, I suppose they hold back a little so they can advertise this so we have to buy these, that's good business I guess.

Better manufacturing processes allow them to reduce the built in tolerances that all manufacturers use.
