Q & A
It has been a few years since Cleveland released new woods and irons, but the company has an extensive history of creating popular products in both categories. With its new Launcher HB line of golf clubs, Cleveland is hoping to bring the recreational golfer a better combination of performance and simplicity with a focus on higher launch, straighter shots, and more forgiveness. In terms of the new Launcher HB driver, maybe most notably, it features a bonded hosel design, which engineers opted to utilize for performance purposes. The weight saved as opposed to using an adjustable hosel enables significant weight to be repositioned low and deep in the clubhead to increase launch conditions and improve stability at impact. Also helping create a low, deep CG placement is the use of Cleveland’s highly successful HiBore crown, which also saves weight. Additionally, however, the crown compresses and decompresses during impact to help improve ball speed. Cleveland also has implemented Cup Face technology to improve ball speed from across the face, and Flex-Fin technology on the sole of the club aids in protecting ball speed on off-center hits. Launcher HB drivers are available in lofts of 9, 10.5, and 12 degrees and come with the Miyazaki C Kua 50 graphite shaft, which offers players a high-launch, mid-spin profile.
