A review of the Cleveland Launcher XL270 driver

Cleveland Launcher XL270
Golf Monthly Verdict

Fun is the operative word with the Cleveland Launcher XL270 thanks to a lightweight design that provides all out yardage. The featherweight shaft and head will take some getting used to but will add yardage.

The lightest of Cleveland's three Launcher Ultralite models, the 270g Cleveland Launcher XL270 is fitted with the extremely light Miyazaki C. Kua 39 Series shaft. Cleveland's Right Weighting System promises to find the ideal weight for 99% of golfers. Fantastic distance on offer and achieved through a head that looks superb behind the ball.

The Cleveland Launcher XL270 is a bomber of a driver that will not be suited to those who seek added workability.
