Same thoughts here: what are the shaft options besides C. Kua they mention. I’m glad they didn’t go ultralight!!! I’ve always gotten along with Cleveland drivers, so I’m really interested in trying this one!

This is the most confusing and contradictory driver and article (on the main blog site) I’ve read in quite a while. Everything about the design of this club contradicts itself.

First it says that tour pros want to shape the golf ball which, as a whole, isn’t true these days. They want to eliminate one side of the course and hit it as high, far and straight as they can. No pro is carving their driver around corners anymore, they are going OVER the corners.

Then the article says Cleveland says this driver isn’t designed for low handicap players with a tour level swing but states that only the faster swings will see any advantage to the aerodynamics on the crown. Why make a driver designed for regular person swings with aerodynamics on the crown that only work for faster swings? They essentially informs us they are unnecessary for anyone that should fit into this club and are only for marketing purposes.

Then they say it’s got less left bias with the internal weighting than the previous Launcher HB but then shut the face more so that it’s very closed and say that only people that hit the ball right should use it? WTF?

I was really disappointed when I finally saw the full description of this club. Why wouldn’t they have made a square face version that someone with a higher swing speed could use that would just be a high launch, low spin bomber and then have the Draw version with a closed face to satisfy those golfers with more normal swing speeds and have a tendency to hit it with a slice?

My reaction as well as far as the presentation being contradictory.  I will be interested to see what type of results the online reviewers get.

I was going to order one sight unseen but I've read about that it's sitting closed is stopping me tbh
