Let me start by saying that both of these sets are WAY out of my league.

But g-damn those 588s are sexy irons.

Don't think you can go wrong with either one!  Just curious, any reason you ruled out the Mizuno MP 69's?

I hit the MP 69's and found that i was losing about 5-10 metres distance and that the spin rates were way high, meaning that i was spraying them more that the cleveland 588's or titleist. but on the ones that i hit pure that felt pretty good

Both are too much club for me but if I could play either and it came down to a coin flip it'd be the 588's just because of the look.

They're both beautiful!  If I had to be nit-picky and choose one, I'd go with the Titleists.  I think the colored logo on the 588's makes them look a little less sleek.  It gives them like 0.0001% of a GI look.  (Again, being realllll nit-picky here - they both look pretty awesome)

I just recently put the 588s in the bag. They are nothing short of amazing. The set I replaced was a combo of Mizuno MX-23 (3-6) and Mizuno MP 60 (7-P). At first, I was a bit intimidated by the smaller head, but after a short stint at the range, all my concerns were firmly put to rest. These sticks are about a club 1/2 longer than my previous irons. They are responsive, lots of feedback. If i mishit one, I know exactly what I did to cause it. Let me tell you though, when you catch it clean, it's as if the club is an extension of your body. I can't get over how good these clubs feel. But here's the kicker...

I initially checked with some local retailers on prices for these things and no one would go lower than $950. So, to the interwebz I went. I browsed around and finally found a set of the combos (588 CB/MB). This was the set I initially wanted. I bid $450 on a "fine" condition set through 3ballsgolf.com and won. Well, upon receiving the irons, I realized the listing was wrong, and they sent me the full set of MBs instead. As far as the condition is concerned, I think the 8 iron was the only club that had been hit. These things were in MINT condition. I spoke with CS, and they told me to hit them and if I liked them, they would give me a partial refund or I could send them back for a full refund. Well, after putting together some buttery shots from the PW through the 6 iron, I was almost convinced these would stay in the bag. However, after i hit the 5,4,& 3 irons....all I can say is "damn."

It's simply the best iron I've ever played. I was hitting the 3 iron "on the screws" just as well as the 8 iron, carrying it nearly 235. I cannot say enough about the performance of these irons. Looks, feel, quality, etc. They pass with flying colors. Additionally, I'll be gaming a $1,000 set of sticks for less than $400. I'm stoked to say the least. I played a quick 9 yesterday and put up a 38 with two three putts here at my local club, so I can't wait to get back out there. Now, only if I could make some putts, I could be in business. I hope this was helpful for anyone considering these sticks. If you're a consistent striker, I think it's at least worth giving them a demo. Here's a pic:

    • Oh yeah, I've know several. Not really giving up the game entirerly, but giving up on going pro. They went on mini tours or play events the (now) web.com tour and just give up after a year or so. They didn't really have a gauge of how much time and skill it really takes to make a living playing golf. If you dont win or make a name for yourself in the college ranks or big international am tournaments, you're really behind the 8ball. 
    • The video was not made for this discussion but a good chunk of it applies - just because you lift your heel off the ground doesn't mean you transfer 95% of your weight right. That's what you had to say in response to "I don't see how the left knee moves as a point of contention"? Again, the other thread existed because there was a huge myth out there about maintaining the same flex in the trail knee. No such myth or disparity exists re: the lead knee. Her head doesn't move off the ball much (well within the "steady head" idea, particularly with a driver), of course she has some tilt away from the target - because her hips don't sway back, and her weight shifts slightly to the right. Very little more than someone with a "modern" golf swing. It's not the only place there's "tension." And no, "loaded" may be a common word, but it can have a bunch of meanings. Your right leg is not the only thing that's "loaded" in ANY full swing in golf. Again, the wrists, the arm across the chest, the elbow, your ankles, your torso is turned… all can be "loaded." That's my point. One of 'em anyway. I haven't attacked whatever it is you're trying to talk about. I am, however, trying to suss out what it is you're trying to talk about. Because if it's "the left knee should be allowed, sometimes, to move back to the right" then I don't think you'll find much disagreement. You seem to think it's more than that, though. I don't think they did either, but the reasons they did it may have changed, or the amount of understanding we have of the golf swing has certainly changed, or what's important in the golf swing may have changed, or a bunch of other things. While writing this, @billchao answered that pretty well too, IMO. I guess, since I don't know what you're actually trying to convey here, I'll drop out for now until you can figure out what it is you're trying to say.
    • I could also just learn to perfect my draw as the article said. Become good/great at a certain shot type. 
    • From a fellow Sconnie, welcome to the site.  Many, many golfers play fades from a closed stance.  They are mostly pull slicers.  Basically your club face is just closed in relation to the path you are swinging on.  Maybe start a swing thread sometime if you want and someone can try and help.  Otherwise there is not really much anyone can tell you.  Hope you stick around and become involved in the site.
    • I disagree with this. Lots of fantastic golfers today don't use this move. People will adopt swing moves based on the style in a given era, regardless of whether they actually improve the swing or not. Think about reverse C finishes or square feet. Some top players play well despite certain trends, not because of them.
