The new Cleveland Launcher Driver has most certainly got many people confused over which club most golfers are drooling over. Cleveland must love the name so much; they’ve decided to re-introduce the Launcher, but with a totally new and awesome design.
The Launcher driver sports a 17-gram horseshoe-shaped weight pad on the rear perimeter of the sole, resulting in an MOI of over 3,000, the highest of any Launcher wood produced by Cleveland Golf. Coupled with optimal Center of Gravity (CG) for that perfect trajectory, the new Cleveland Launcher is extremely stable and forgiving, especially when permitting miss-hits to fly so much straighter and farther down the middle of the fairway.
Bearing the largest face ever, at more than 11% wider than its predecessors, it feels like its sweet spot is all over the face providing tremendous forgiveness on off-center hits, launching near-perfect shots consistently.
Cleveland Launcher Driver Another fantastic feature that separates the new Cleveland Launcher from its competition is its ultra-thin crown. Utilizing the Thin Crown Technology, the Launcher driver measures a mere half millimeter in thickness and repositions all discretionary weight low and deep to increase CG. The result: the finest launch conditions and utmost yardage.
Fitted with the longer, ultra-light Fujikura Fit-On Flightspeed shafts, the new Cleveland Launcher allows higher swing speeds for a super-penetrating ball flight. Shots are brusque at impact, discharging a low-spin, medium trajectory ball flight that is powerful and confident.
The new Cleveland Launcher Driver achieved a Gold rating in Golf Digest Hotlist in the 2009′ Drivers Under $350 category and merited some compliments from Golf Monthly, a prominent UK publication. Cleveland’s commitment to keep tradition alive while providing supreme technology and paramount accuracy, forgiveness, feel and yardage has made it an exceptional driver; one you should well consider.
