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.

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).

Ernest, from Welland, ON, Canada
Current Driver:  TaylorMade R11s (shaft Fuzika - sorry if spelled incorrectly)
Due to 634 driver swings captured on a ForeSight Launch Monitor:

Swing Speed:  94.1

Carry Distance:  221 (total yards 251)
Handicap Index:  9.0


I just went for my first Driver Test Fitting last week with a TaylorMade rep, and after an hour, he was unable to find a (TwistFace) driver head/shaft combination that exceeded my current driver's performance.  I'd be ecstatic if Cleveland could be different and make me a better golfer.
