Another great opportunity! I am interested to see how this driver performs. I am going to bow out of this one because I feel that the Launcher HB isn't a good fit for me. I wouldn't want to take a testing opportunity away from someone who might be a better fit. Good luck to everyone!

They offer way more than I thought they would. This is a great opportunity! We just have the stock option in our glued models. I took a real easy swing with one and it performed great! The testers here are going to like what they get.

Cleveland Launcher HB Driver

With Your Choice of Premium Shaft


Do like your drivers long and beastly or straight and narrow? Do you like to fiddle with features or do you prefer grip it and rip it simple?


There are no wrong answers here, it's just a matter of what you value.


And if you value a driver with a yard-to-dollar ratio close to 1, you might just find value in the Cleveland Launcher HB.



attachicon.gifCleveland Launcher 5.jpg



There's a lot of 2008 in the new Cleveland Launcher HB - there's the name, of course, and the updated HiBore crown. There's no adjustable hosel, and a $299 price tag that will make you feel young again.


The Launcher HB was a solid performer in this year's Most Wanted Testing, finishing in the top half of the pack, only 3 yards behind the PING G400 LST but with a 25% lower sticker price. That's how the off-the-rack model performer for us, but we'd like to see how a customized model works for you.


We want THREE avid golfers to test, review and keep the Cleveland Launcher HB equipped with YOUR CHOICE of any premium shaft in the Cleveland catalog (click here to see the lineup).






How To Apply:


All applications must be made in this thread, so please follow the instructions carefully.


​Please tell us the following:


Your first name and your home state/province

Your current driver/shaft combination

Your driver swing speed/carry distance

Your current handicap




Thanks for applying! We'll announce the testers in this thread next week - Good Luck!
