  • Wow, those were not what I was expecting, a forged face in a SGI line. I like how the OEMs seem to be going with easier to adjust hosels too.

  • Interesting design, looking forward to some more info and pictures on the new irons.

  • This photo reminds me of the Hi-Bore offering that Cleveland had. Looking forward to seeing more photos and reading up on the tech in this set.

  • Interesting design, will be interested to see more pics and see hwo this works out for some folks

  • Wow, indeed! Hollow construction, that’s like the Nike OSS irons. BUT forged face!!! AND bendable hosels?? I will be following these closely!!

  • I was liking these. Especially the longer irons

  • Frank was telling me about these. Definitely interesting. But even for me, these might be a little big. Cant wait to hit them though as I bet they are easy to whack. This seems to be the year of the adjustable hosel

  • Pretty interesting. Would like to compare the hybrid iron set to the traditional irons that I’m used to.

  • Wow. That design is pretty wild. I bet these do have some forgiveness to them.

  • With all indications that this set along with the other new irons Cleveland has coming out all match up loft wise, I can see some crazy iron set combos especially since the price doesn’t change! Might be a fitters dream!

  • Thanks for the insight into these…look forward to seeing more pictures when they are available. I really appreciate a golf company that will take the time and effort to include the technology improvements on their GI/SGI sets.

  • These are definitely interesting to say the least. Would love to give these a go as the claims they make are all parts of my game that need help.

  • Nice to see some added customization for irons of these class. Changing the lie angle could be a huge benefit for players looking for both forgiveness and a customized fit.

  • Not really digging the design. I do however like the technology behind it. A forged face will certainly be a nice plus and the easier to bend hosel will definitely be helpful in getting the right clubs in your hands.

  • Interesting set of sticks to say the least. I’m like others with the easy option to adjust the lie on these puppies. I bet there will be a ton of folks who have problems getting the ball air born, will be looking at these in the near future.

  • Interesting product. Can’t wait for some in hand pics, these look pretty slick for a SGI

  • These look very interesting. I love the customization aspect. That is one thing that I feel has been lacking in hybrids. Really looking forward to seeing these in person!

  • Very cool looking irons. Look as though they have all the bases covered.

  • whoa.
    definitely wouldn’t be a fan of a hybo iron set, but i imagine that i could mash these.
    i bet they feel amazing though…i’d like to give them a swing.

  • Hmmmmm, interesting. Not really for my personal eye but I can see where they would appeal to a group out there for sure. Remind me of the old HiBore set a bit actually.

  • Forged SGIs? Wow. Would be nice to own a few of these just as hybrids.

  • Not sure about the look of these, wil definitely need to see these in hand for sure. But the bendable hosel is a great touch

  • I can see these working for certain people for sure. Interesting to see what kind of feedback is given from these and what type of player they work for.

  • I like that it can be bent for your specs. but, I need to see some more before I comment on looks.

  • Not a fan of the looks at all, they remind me of a Yonex model several years ago.

  • Very interesting….I like the bendable hosel so you can adjust lie….and forged face too….really need to see some in hand pics to make a judgement.

  • Some nice steps in a good direction with facing and adjustment.

  • I would hit these. These are kind of similar to the Brownings I had in the 1980’s, and also the TaylorMade SuperLaunch irons.

  • Wow….these have me super-intrigued. Bendable hosel is a major plus. I’m definitely OK with the looks. Can’t wait to see & read more about these.

  • Sorta look like an extension of the niblicks. Looks as though there making a full iron line out of that design. Cartainly the backs are nearly identical to the niblicks

  • These have an interesting look and the bendable hosel to adjust lie angle is certainly something to get ones attention.

  • I am going to game these for a bit and see what they play like. I could not play this type of club due to the customization I needed. I will post in the forums when I get them.

  • Very nice. I picked up the Hi-bores about 3 years ago, and still love them. The 588’s new finish and adjustability are nice upgrades. As my game has improved – I’m now about an 11 handicap – the only change I’m planning to make is custom fitting. And I’ll definitely do that with the new clubs. Can’t imagine being happier with anything else. Thanks, Cleveland.
