Quality: 

Thus far feels very solid.  based on how well Cleveland's wedges are, I expect this to be fine quality wise.

Pros: 

Nice club.   Very clean looking, easy to setup too.  Solid weight to it so you feel the head when you swing it.  Very solid performer.  When I was testing woods in the PGA Tour SuperStore hitting bay, I hit this, several TM models (Rocketballs, Aero-something), Pings and a few others.  Quite honestly, from a distance stand point, they all were within 5 yards of each other on good strikes...225-235 carry and roll out to about 245 to 255.  The 558 though pretty much was always either a 5 yard draw or dead straight when I missed it.  The sound and feel when you hit the ball is a solid sort of "thud" which some might not like, but I like that it's not a loud "ping" noise.  And I get good feel from the head when I hit it dead center or off center. 

And the price, I've seen them used for under $50 and I got this new for $79.  That's half what the Ping was.

Cons: 

None yet.  it's been solid thus far through 3 rounds.  hit it very well, very far and even drawn a few people to look at it in the bag.

Summary: 

Thus far, I'm very pleased.  Solid performance, love the look and love the price.  And it's as long as anything else.
