(3) TESTERS ANNOUNCED: Cleveland Launcher HB Driver

Recommended Posts

Wow, of all the MGS testing ops, this is the one I'd really really like to get chosen for. I've used a Cleveland TL310 driver with the stock Miyazaki shaft for years and it's stayed in the bag because nothing could out drive it when I went in for demos. Would be very excited to get my hands on the new iteration. Here goes!


  1. Alex Ontario, Canada
  2. Cleveland TL310 / Miyazaki Tour Issue C.Kua
  3. Swing speed around 95-98mph - carry ~240-250yds
  4. Hcp 7

Thanks!  :D

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).
