Cleveland Launcher HB
Our Review:Cleveland is having none of golf's complex moving parts. The throwback design—no adjustable hosel, no movable weights—might seem basic, but look again: The simplicity serves a purpose. Most golfers, Cleveland engineers say, need forgiveness on mis-hits and a higher launch, so any feature that doesn't work toward those objectives is a waste of material and unnecessarily confusing. Here, all the weight saved from not having adjustable features is pushed low and deep for higher launch and added forgiveness for off-center hits. A stepped crown and sole are designed to enhance the flexing of the face for better distance.

lowIt was very forgiving on my bad swings.
midFeels fast when you hit it great—in the sound and the feedback in my hands.
highThe channel gives the appearance of a smaller clubhead. All hits seem to fly to a really nice height at their apex.
