The Golf Monthly test team reviews the Cleveland 588 hybrid
Cleveland 588 Hybrid Key Technology:
A compact head with minimal offset. Variable face thickness technology is designed to create a powerful flight on strikes from the middle, and fast ball speeds on off-centre hits. The Gliderail sole features two rails to minimise drag and help the club cut through the turf. The head design and a sole plug move the centre of gravity low to help produce a higher launch.
Will suit… Players after a stylish, forgiving head design.
Hybrids have greatly enhanced the playability of the game, and this model is no different. It was easy to use and came in handy for all those tough long shots from both the fairway and rough. It gave a powerful flight, with greater yardage than I’d expected from the 20.5-degree model I tried. I also had great success when using it from fairway bunkers, thanks to the sole.
