This head is 25 grams lighter than standard drivers to help produce faster clubhead speeds. In order to improve forgiveness nine grams of weight have been removed from the face and repositioned low and deep in the head.
The Cleveland Launcher DST driver should suit golfers who are looking for a few extra yards, want a traditional head with no alignment, and/or like a solid but not overbearing impact noise.
Last year's Launcher was an impressive performer with the only slight criticism being the large alignment aid. This has been removed and the driver looks stunning as a result. The lightweight head didn't give any less control, and produced long drives that sounded fantastic.
