PRICE: £129.00 YEAR: from 2014

Clevelandsays the 588 Hybrid is its longest hybrid ever, featuring a hot, forgiving face for maximum distance and Gliderail Technology for incredible playability.

Players of all abilities will experience added power and control from any lie whether that be from fairway, rough or sand.

Better players will enjoy the shape of the head as it looks compact and there is minimal offset. It’s a very attractive club but the shiny finish may put some interested punters off.

Unfortunately, the shiny finish means there is quite a bit of glare. There isn’t much to go on when it comes to alignment either, which is a little disappointing. 

Ten of the Best: Golf Hybrids 2014

The 599 has a beautiful feel, so much so that we couldn’t stop hitting it. It is a soft, springy feel that will have you reaching for the hybrid time and again.

We also appreciated the shaft weight of the Miyazaki, which felt easy to swing with control. 

This is one of the longer clubs we’ve hit but the most impressive thing for us was the forgiveness on offer.  

Variable face thickness technology meant we didn’t lose too much ball speed when we hit a bad one and the Gliderail Technology, designed to reduce turf drag, allowed us to get the club through the turf with ease.

The 588 has a naturally penetrating ball flight so will be perfect for players struggling with ballooning balls

Verdict

A fantastic hybrid that performs off the deck, rough and tee. It has a naturally high ball flight and is very forgiving.

Aside from potential glare issues and a lack of alignment at address, this one is well worth a look at particularly given its price tag.
