TECH TALK: Cleveland's second generation of lightweight drivers features three new models. The 270-gram version weighs about 25 grams less than last year's Launcher DST yet still maintains traditional swingweights.
L: "I know this is lightweight, but I could feel the clubhead the whole time. Toe hits really flew." ... "It has that Cleveland hot-spicy sound and trajectory."
M: "The clubhead has a nice, traditional teardrop shape, but it's bigger than usual. Looks like you can really get it up quickly."
H: "This club definitely corrects a slicer's swing. I didn't hit one ball to the right with it."
HOT: The concept of less total weight is the least-explored area of driver technology, and Cleveland offers the best selection. The high-tech Miyazaki shaft is the secret hero.
NOT: A 46¼-inch driver is longer than most and might be too long for the masses.
