One is the 588 53-8 (Diadic). The other is the 691 58-0.
If I see one at a reasonable price, I grab it. They don't get played until they each get a cover-shredding groove job and an NV-Pro 105, but the heads are there when I need one.
Cleveland has gone all-teardrop all the time. Just the 588 shape. No more 485s and 691s.
Same with Titleist. All the Vokeys now have the old 200 Series teardrop shape. The 300 and 400 Series shapes are gone.
Mizuno still offers two shaps, and last time I checked, Scratch still offered three.
But almost everybody else has gone all teardrop all the time.
I assume than in an iffy economy, they have to go with what sells the most and can't cater to special tastes.

Nakashima Black Ninjas come in 2009, 2010 (C of C) and completely non-forming "super spin" grooves.
The Super Spins are highly recommended.
Major manufactures should blatantly market high cor drivers and super spin grooves to help recreational players put the USGA in its place. They throw the finger at recreational golf while trying to defend par from the top 1%.
I don't even bag a driver most of the time, but I'm not putting up with the new grooves. Even my classic Cleveland sets--588 53° / 691 58°--get the machine shop treatment. And for real laughs, I have a set of "Spin Doctors" as well.
I'm 65. I play for fun, exercise, fresh air, and the time with my friends. And I like to back up the ball because, even if it doesn't help my scoring, it looks cool.
