A review of the Cleveland Launcher SL290 driver

Cleveland Launcher SL290
Golf Monthly Verdict

Visually the balance between forgiveness and good looks is perfect on the Cleveland Launcher SL290 driver. Shots from the middle produced a superb flight and there was plenty of confidence inspiring forgiveness.

The middle model in Cleveland's new Launcher Ultralite Series, the company says the Cleveland Launcher SL290 weighs 25g less than the average driver at 290g, to encourage a faster swing speed, and therefore greater shot distance. Impressive distance but easier to control than the XL270. Another great looking head.

Players looking to work the ball both ways on a consistent basis should try the TL310.
