Would you suggest the Cleveland 588 MT to a 16 handicapper?

4 posts in this topic

So I just bought the ckevlands after having the Adams ideas s speed iron set. I'm hoping I'm not biting to much off going to these clubs. I was not able to hit the mt irons bot hit the tt set at the store. I liked the look the feel and sound but they were hard to hit. The pro sad the mt set is much easier. As we all know there is some sales in this game lmao. Any feed back would be great.

The 2013 Cleveland irons had the 588 CB, along with a mix-and-match family including the Altitude, MT (Mid-Trajectory) and TT (Tour Trajectory) models.

All models in this trio have the same shaft lengths and lofts for their irons and wedges. Altitude with a hollow, hybrid-type head, is the SGI model. The MT is the GI model. Both took silver medal in their respective class for the 2013 GD Hot List. (I was unable to find the TT slot in last year's List). All have a 39.75" 3i - old "standard" was 39" - and have a D3 swingweight in numbered steel-shafted irons despite having lighter shafts.

I tried the TT at a February Expo, and I hit it fairly well. It has the Cleveland/True Temper TRAction shaft in it, only 85 gr. in both R and S. The R.shaft felt a little light and soft. It got the ball up, however; a 4 iron felt like a 7 iron.

If you liked the TT but struggled a bit, you should be able to handle the MT. You didn't say what type of shaft you got with it -  hope it's not too light for you.

Thanks wu I got the stiff shaft. I was hitting a regular in the tt. That was along the same thing I felt with the regular shaft. The problem I ran into is they are clearing them out at my local shops. But I have a set that will be here soon in the mt. I hit the tt ok and the altitudes are just way to clunky.

I have the TT and love them. Also have the Altitude 4i and quickly got over the look after seeing the results. So forgiving and just pummels the ball. I hit it more consistent and further than my Cobra 4h, which is saying something because the shaft is shorter. Oh yeah I bought the Altitude D wedge too almost impossible to chunk it chipping. Those are meant to mix and match so don't be afraid to mix it up.

    • I usually like to tee my ball 2" below waist high.
    • Nadir is technically correct but fairly arcane; I've never heard anyone refer to the lowest point of the golf swing as the nadir. I used the term "apex' because in racing it refers to the inside point of the racing line in a turn at which you're closest to the curb. The orientation of hands to clubhead at impact does make a difference. However, the naive solution to being told you're leading the club with the hands is to release your wrists earlier, and done even a little too early this results in "casting" the club which wastes most of the power of the downswing. So, you have to be real careful telling someone who's keeping his wrists too stiff to "release more".
    • Actually, I was just looking back through the old Bulls goalies and there are a bunch of familiar names. Early on you had Doug Dadswell and Sandy Galluppo. Both those guys played for the Cyclones and Sandy had a stint with Dayton before Birmingham. You were one of the many, many stops for old Kalamazoo goalie Mike Torchia, a Michelin man-looking guy that I saw play the Cyclones many times. Last but certainly not least was my old BG buddy Shawn Timm. He played a miserable 15 minutes in goal for the Bulls after his senior season with the Falcons. Gave up three goals and became an investment banker. Great memories.
    • It might not have been the security guards who suggested paying for the damages. He gave them ~ $50 cash. He wasn't 'shaken down', taken to an ATM, relieved of watch, electronics, etc. In the U.S. there is such a thing as a citizen's arrest. It's possible that in Rio some licensed private security guards may be deputized in some way with partial powers to detain for arrest. Every time Lochte's lawyer responds to a media inquiry with 'no comment' it's billable time. If they decide to answer the charges with local representation the money bleed will accelerate. I'm positive paying the donation in lieu of fine in the short term like his teammate did would have been less costly. It would have been even less costly ~ $50 if he had kept his trap shut in the media having already narrowly avoided an official 'on the books' detention / arrest / fine. http://www.people.com/article/ryan-locht-summoned-brazil
    • So an actual player. Yeah, its tough to turn any coach's head at that kind of weight. UAH must have been fairly early in their program (at least at the Div. I level) at that point to.  I was 12 or so before I even discovered hockey (again the Bombers) and didn't learn to skate until is was 15. Besides that I'm about as athletic as a wet sock, so never played anything other than drop-in type stuff. There was a train-wreck of a rec league I played in at Bowling Green. We were the scraps left over and it showed. If ever manage to curtail my over-fondness for beer and drop about 30 lbs, I might give drop-in another go.
