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

Recommended Posts

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.

    • Should there be a poll where you can select more than one? At times, the driver gets me trouble and 3W sometimes ends in a super thin shot, but they still feel "comfortable" to swing. My longest iron is the hardest with the second longest being a close second so 5i and 4i. Luckily, I rarely ever need to use them, and if I do, I get these really low screaming shots on the course. Even on the range, these two clubs are like a hit it once, hate the shot, then pick another club to hit.
    • Rick, there's plenty of evidence. Players have stood by greenside for a few years now while their fellow competitors play shots to the hole and they have plenty of time to go mark. In fact, since a fellow competitor has to wait, you don't even have to be right there - you just have to reasonably believe there is a chance the ball could assist the play of a fellow competitor. The evidence is not non-existent, and it is growing.
    • In my experience, the people that do it wrong often falls into two categories. Those that don't know how to do it and those that don't care. The first category we will probably find everywhere. The second might depend on the country, area, general state of the course, what kind of people that play it. Many that I've played with didn't know how to do it properly. They might have learned it at a course once and that information might have been wrong. Or they just do what a lot of others do. They're typically happy if they level out the spot, without regards to how they did it. From my experience, people don't want to treat the course bad and most thank me when I explain how to do it properly. Some might thank me and not care the next round they play, but that's tough to do anything about. My advice is to tell everyone you see do it wrong. Give them a demonstration and explanation of why it should be done this way. It can also help to reach out to the clubs and make them throw up some posters, roll the proper way to do it on screens in the club house. I once played on a course where they asked everyone that showed up to play how to fix the marks. Before letting them out to play, the players had to give a small demonstration. This can be a great way to reach out to a lot of players, but make sure it's done in a positive way. Some can fussy if they take it as a personal insult that you don't think they know how to repair the marks. You find most golfers on the golf course. A very small percentage visit a golf forum.
    • My 60° Vokey wedge is black. It's black because, well, it's the only lob wedge we had in stock at that time. I don't like it or dislike it any more than any other wedge, although I can find it easily in my bag.
