Cleveland 588 forged irons vs Nike vapor pro irons


Recommended Posts

Not sure if this is the right place to post this or not but I was wondering if any of you have hit both of these sets and what your opinions on these irons are. I'm torn between which ones to use.

Chisag... A very good player and excellent reviewer has played the 588's and speaks very highly of them.

588's were one of the best irons Cleveland put out in my opinion. Great feel and a lot of Cleveland pros kept them in the bag for a long time

I have the 588 CB and absolutely love the clubs. Very smooth through the turf, nice sound and very good feedback. Conservatively lofted, i.e. I7 at 35 deg.

Those irons are Endo forged and traded at Ebay for about $200 a set. A steel imho.


I bought a second as backup. Will never sell them.

The 588s are what I play and I love them. Will play them for as long as I possibly can. They look good and when you pure a shot it feels like butter.

They were endo Forged?? No wonder I loved them when I demoed them... I'd chose the 588s over the Nike. The Nike felt a little bit harder, but not by much. I only hit them during demo days though.

Never got to hit them but always wanted a set. Very classic lines and looks to be a good forging.

Thanks for the replies everyone. Just got a chance to hit both sets side by side along with the Ben Hogan redlines and I have to say that the Clevelands felt softer than the nikes. I also like the idea of having cb in the long irons and mb in the 7-pw with the clevelands.
