Cleveland Classic and Classic XL


Recommended Posts

Anyone playing these? I was playing an R7 and Wilson Cortex. Cortex is a great club. Ran across Cleveland Classic 10.5( 2012 model) and decided to give it a try( loved the retro looks) came with Miyazaki 4R shaft( I’m 60) and I loved it.! Decided I wanted more rollout so bought Classic XL 9.5) adjustable. Came with Matrix Ozik what that just didn’t seem to work well. Constant slice whatever the adjustment was. Found a Miyazaki JDL 5R shaft and the difference is amazing. These are great shafts and excellent drivers. Either on is a winner although I get more rollout with 9.5. Grab one if you get the chance!

I tried, it's the only driver I pre-ordered, was playing a Comp 420 at the timed, loved it, so figure i try this,, nope! either high and to the left or low and to the right, if somewhere down the middle, it was shoulder high.

Could not figure out why, I could hit the mashie hybrids with same shaft with no problem. Gave it to my brother in law who could hit it a mile , high, long and straight,,,

My 25 yo son plays a tour issue classic XL 9.5*. He has a swing speed 125+, and it works really well for him. It’s not the most forgiving, he sprays it some, but that is more user operator. When he catches it it goes 300 on a perfect trajectory

I have both drivers. I play the XL because the Miyazaki JDL 5R just feels better than the C Kia shaft that is mated to the Classic. Both are outstanding and even tho it’s 7 years old it’s in my bag. Both are forgiving and I can keep either in the fairway. The XL is adjustable and I have it set .75 left for a slight draw bias. I am a 11 handicap and love both. You can’t go wrong.

I had one of those heads with adjuster and all in a box in the shop. Can not remember where I got it. Anyhow last year one of my buds on WRX mentioned wanting one. I boxed it up and sent it to him. I forgot what shaft he said he put in it but he says it is a cannon.
