2018 Official Forum Member Review - Cleveland Launcher HB/CBX Irons


Recommended Posts

Sorry @Wedgie let me be a smidgen more clear as much as I'm allowed.

Launcher will have an update to it.

But CBX is going away and there is a new line replacing it.  One that can't be talked about quite yet, but very very soon.   The Homepage I'm sure will have info on it and I'll provide some first hand info.

It's worth checking back for!!

Same, give me max forgiveness for lower scores. This new Launcher and the HL4 Iron-Wood are at the top of iron testing for me this year.

Except for those who were the chosen few who can play those players irons, why wouldn't you go with max forgiveness.  If I was in a hog wrestling contest, would I want a deep mud hole to pursue this challenge or would I want firmer ground to get a good hold on that slippery rascal? It's a non brainer cuz and I can't understand why golfers, who know the game is hard, unpredictable, and down right aggravating at times,  won't throw down their pride and get some help with the SGI irons.

Admittedly Grey, I went that way with the One Length experiment, but I just don't practice enough anymore due to time.

I know it's uncool for someone of my age and skill level to do it, because if I had the time to practice I know I could play those better player's irons, but it's like Adam said in an episode of NPG, take the most forgiving iron you can hit and stomach to look at and play it. Let them shame you while you're taking their money and trophies.

I just saw a commercial on the Golf Channel for the new HB irons. Wasn’t really paying attention but it surprised to see the commercial but nothing on the Cleveland site yet. No mention of the CBX. I think they were called Launcher Hb Turbo irons but don’t hold me to it.

I played with my son the other day who just started playing this summer. We just upgraded him to a Tour Edge Bazooka box set putter thru driver. On number 9 he played his ball with the Bazookas and he played my ball with the Launchers. He hit the Launchers way better but said he couldn’t stand looking at them. Little brat! He played the hole 1 over with the Launchers and had a triple with his clubs.

TURBO!

The HB's have been TURBO-ized and these seem awesome.

These turbo irons look hotter than a 2 dollar pistol! 😍🏌️‍♂️     I hope MGS has the opportunity to test these puppies as sooooooo many golfers need to put down their pride and go with forgiveness.

Giving this gem of a thread a bump with this recent Peter Finch video that highlights the HB Launchers (albeit the Turbo version). Nice to see these irons still being recognized for how forgiving they are.

he's right.... those clubs are dynamite. 

I remember when I first started and I used a similar set from Gigagolf. Ugly as all get out but man ... so forgiving. both the cleveland and the wilson version are fantastic.
