Summary: I am not a long ball striker by any means. Every driver I've tried so far always seems to be too long for me which makes me stand further from my ball and I tend to slice my shots off the tee. For this reason I always pull an iron out of my bag when I tee off. I'll take a straight shot over distance any day of the week. It was just on a whim that I purchased this club. But, I'm glad I did.
GREAT DRIVER - Buy a new one if you can, otherwise get a used one!

Summary: The other reviewers are correct - this driver really sets a new standard for distance. It's 15 yards longer than any other I have ever used. It is very nicely balanced - just use your normal swing and watch it fly. It's longer and lighter than almost every other driver on the market today but it is solid. I own two - one in regular and one stiff flex. GREAT MIYAZAKI SHAFTS. There is nothing to dislike about this driver.
great price for a superbly engineered driver-miyazaki gold shaft all class

Summary: excellent superlight driver, great miyazaki c kua graphics on classic cleveland gold shaft-draw is not that pronounced only a few degrees but enough to reduce a fade-good distance and launch angle
Summary: Just picked this up on ebay for $40....a little skeptical of the 39 gram 46 inch shaft as I am a fast swinger and load quickly. However to my surprise launched nicely with little spin. Bombed it...may be the longer shaft slowed me down, but worth twice what I paid for it....i also play Cleveland mashie 3 wood and hybrids which also have lighter shafts and these all launch like champs...Cleveland is on to something.
great choice, especially with addition of longer shaft...

Summary: the XL270 is light for maximum control, but the Cleveland head design still allows for enough punch to put it out there. Because of the light weight, makes an excellent choice for the addition of one of the longer shafts.
Good look at address, feel, sound, forgiveness, distance... A winner!

Summary: Before reading this review note that the XL270 driver I purchased did NOT have the stock shaft, but had a Fubuki Alpha 50 stiff custom shaft instead. This driver was great on the range and my first round with it! Distance was good, balance was good, but how forgiving and straight it was, actually surprised me! I have had a problem slicing most drivers I try, this had a nice "baby fade" with good roll.
