The CG16 is a cavity-back wedge, more game improvement, while the 588 is more muscleback, toward a player's club. With  a 6 HDCP you could go with whichever one felt best.

We'll talk about both the 50* and 52* GWs. The CG16 comes with 10* bounce for both lofts, while the Cle 588 comes with 8* bounce for both lofts. Which one is best for you? This depends on your swing, and normal course conditions.

Among other things, he addresses the difference between rated bounce and effective bounce .

I have the CG15 (similar to the CG 16) GW and a 588 SW.  The feel of the 588 is much better for my short game, and I use my SW frequently around the green.  I preferred the CG15 for my GW which is primarily only used for approach shots.  Really I could have went either way with my GW, but the CG15 was significantly cheaper so I went that way instead.

My only advice is the black pearl finish wears easily if you play in sandy or coarse soils. The very first time I hit my CG15 62* BP I had scratches through the finish down to the silver underneath. I thought it may be a distraction it but hasn't bothered me looking down at the face. I've had my wedges about 2 months and the bottom of the BP's are pretty scuffed up. Though I saw it coming, I bought the chrome for my 56 (SW).
