Summary: Bought this driver new about a week ago, a real bargain. I have two rounds with it on different courses and am very pleased. Since I'm an old man I don't worry about distance a lot but this driver is as long as the others I have played. The main thing is that I can find the ball and play it again and this club does very well. At adress this driver appears very large, like you can't miss the ball. Like all drivers if you try to kill the ball you can mess up.
Summary: Well, if a Titleist driver is like a sniper's rifle, then the Comp is sorta like a bazooka. Just like a 460cc round rubber ball that seems to hit the golf ball wherever it wants. Is it long? For average swing speeds, Yes. It is pretty long. but if you swing anywhere near 100 or over you need a very good, high kickpoint shaft with low torque to get this thing anywhere. I was playing the Hi-Bore with the V2 shaft before, and that was 3x as accurate.
Summary: This club is very forgiving on missed hits. This is my first 460cc club and I highly recommend it. I have seen the Cleveland Launcher Hi Bore XLS for sale for $99.00 brand new at Sports Authority. They don't always have it marked down to 99.00, but when they do. It would be an excellent purchase.
Summary: I have been looking for a used Cleveland driver because they don't make them anymore. Most golf pro shops don't carry used clubs any more and ebay is an excellent place to find them and the price is usually attractive. I was very satisfied with the condition of the club.
Summary: The head has a slick black finish with a tour block shape. The ball flight from this club will depend on which shaft the club has, the stock regular flex shaft produces a high ball flight but, shows very minimal loss in distance. The launcher comp is another example of another fine quality cleveland golf product. I would highly recommend these clubs for the price point.
Summary: This club is great for any golfer looking for some extra yards off the tee. I tend to have a fast swing so I decided to go with a shaft that is a bit more stiff than flex. I also liked the lower loft club head (8-9.5) because the ball shoots off the tee rather than getting caught up too high in the wind. I went with an 8.5 loft. The nice thing is the 460cc head tends to make up for any distance I might have lost with using a stiff shaft or the lower loft.
Summary: This club just looks good. When you make a perfect swing and catch the ball smack dab on the sweet spot....well, this club produces some serious distance. I added at least twenty yards to my usual drive. I sold it to a friend though, because every fifth or sixth drive when my confidence was soaring I managed to hit a really long hook, usually right out of bounds. The club still looked good, still felt good, and really sounded good.
Summary: This is one of Cleveland's best drivers. It gives the confidence over the ball that most players need while delivering solid workability desired by good players. The duel material technology allows for maximum size and distance at the tee. For nearly $125, this is a solid investment in a driver with modern technology that has a classic look.
Summary: This was the driver I was looking for; it had the loft angle I wanted and the type of shaft I wanted--Aldilas, regular flex. Price was right for this club--itwas what I considered a good (although not great) deal. It was like new, as advertised with a grip that showed very little signs of wear.
Summary: The reason I bought the Driver was that I have seen many golfers using that club. I had tried the Cleveland HI Bore but wasn't consistant with it. I decided to go on Ebay and try and find a Launcher. The launcer is a great club. I don't hit it as far as those who play with me . I hit it a little longer then my previous one. I am still experimenting with it but it will come around. I am glad I bought it. Did I mention that I am a 70 year senior.
