I use the 588 TT, my average driver SS is over 100, usually 98-105. The cool thing is the interchangeability with the other Cleveland irons. I hated the stock shafts, putting the KBS Tour in those heads made a huge difference. Just bought a 588 MT 5 iron and I also have a few 588 Altitude irons. Haven't used those in a while but despite the SGI properties and fugly look a lot of low handicap golfers use the 588 Altitude long irons. I went to a 7 wood instead of a 4 iron but when I used the Altitude 4 it was like a hammer.
My experience is most don't hit it as high as they think they do. Have you ever been on Trackman or FlightScope? Last Fri when I was at our supervised practice we rotate through the stalls and get about 15 minutes on FlightScope. Our coach tracks our numbers for us. Anyway my flight is higher than most, it was higher than any other student that was there that day. I averaged in the 68-78 feet range with decent contact on limited flight balls, bad hits were considerably lower. Some of those folks were only getting it to about 40-50 feet, decent golfers. A young guy there talking to my coach plays on the Loyola Marymount golf team and he was hitting it more like a pro. It was so much higher than everyone else there really impossible not to notice it.
