Great feeling putter, easy to get the ball to the hole and very easy to align on short putts. All those factors should make this a winner for Cleveland.
Bottom Line: Sometimes, it’s the small things that make a difference. Such is the case with the Smart Square, which like Odyssey’s Versa putters from 2013 use a small cosmetic change to add considerable alignment benefits.
I was a BIG pessimist when I first heard about the idea and saw the press materials as I’ve been a big voice in the same designs being used by everyone and there being a lack of creativity out there in putters now. Well, the Smart Square has figured out how to be both of those things at the same time. I did not expect that at all.
If you are needing improvent off the tea you need to have a look at this driver
Bottom line is these are really nice clubs for a middle aged guy with a moderate swing speed. Cleveland did a great job with these. VERY HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.
Most of the OEM's are coming out with lower lofts in their irons to get more distance at the expense of too much roll out when the ball lands due to the lower launch angles. Great for distance hungry amatuers, but hard on the better golfer looking for the ball to stop on the greens close to where it lands. What you are getting is a 7 iron with the loft of a 6 iron, so needless to say you get the same lower ball flight and longer distance you'd get with a 6 iron. If you are looking for more distance with your irons, and like the idea of more roll out to go with the added carry yardage. this would be my choice. The Laser milled face texture really does work for added spin. Very easy to hit and the shafts are high quality steel shafts. I rate the CG16 irons a 5 for carry yardage and ease of use. but a 3 for holding the greens.
This might be the longest set of irons you can buy today. I was hitting the ball farther with the 6 iron than I hit my current 5 iron. Ball flight is lower due to the stronger lofts in each of the clubs, so you also get more roll after the ball lands some 20 yards past what I'm getting with my current irons. 6 iron loft is 27*, down from 32* for my 6 iron. If you are looking for longer carry and more roll, check out these irons. If you are looking for a set of irons that land and stop on a dime, these are not for you.
Cleveland now has 3 new Launcher drivers in 3 different weights. This is the mid weight version. For my swing it's a better fit than the lighter XL270. If you like a driver that is a little lighter than most others on the market, this SL290 might be the one for you. Easy to hit and long.
If you like a standard weight driver than I'd recommend you try out the new Launcher TL310. Cleveland has 3 new Launcher drivers and this is the heavest of the three. For me the heavier shaft and head just fits my game the best of the three. Very long and easy to hit straight. Good ball flight and lots of roll due to the very low spin rates I was getting.
This is a very nice 3 wood. The 15* loft is about perfect for most golfers. Very good distance and easy to hit reasonably well. While I do perfer a heavier weight shaft in my fairway woods, this one did very well wit the factory installed shaft. Goof feel in my hands and it looks pretty good behind the ball as well. Nothing not to like really
I doubt very many amature golferS or even tour pros will hit this 13* 3 wood as well as the more standard 15* version of the same club. Just not enough loft to get the ball high enough to get max distance from a 3 wood. With the lower ball flight and lower backspin, this 13* wood is harder to hit well, less forgiving, and shorter in distance. Go with the standard 15* 3 wood and you'll be much happier, especially if you have a swing speed less than 110 MPH. Hard to hit well off a TEE, even worse off the deck.
This is a very good driver. The total club weight is very low at around 270 grams. If you like a light weight driver this one may be perfect for you. Give it a test drive and see if it fits your swing.
This driver inspires confidence and you look forward to hitting it. I do not know how workable it is as I am just concerned with hitting it straight.
If you play from softer conditions, I'd say these 3 wedges would make an EXCELLENT addition to you bag. For the firmer playing condition where I play, I think the lower boucce DSG wedges with the OIL CAN finish would be my choice. The Tour Playings are forced to play the new wedges and irons with the smaller grooves. The the laser grooves on these new CG15 wedges is going to help a lot. They add some 1,200 RPM of backspin over regular wedges, and with the lose of spin with the new smaller 2010 groove rule, the extra 1,200 RPM is going to come in real handy. With the extra spin, I think the new CG15 Tour wedges will be one of the top performing wedges on tour this year, and for years to come. If you play in tournements, I'd recommend you buy some as soon as possible.
you want the best blades ever? these are it, i dont care if you are a 25 h'cap or a pro these irons are the bomb, get a set and get out there.
This used driver is ALMOST good enough as it came to go in most anyones bag, it's that good. Excellent quality and very long off the tee. Good forgiveness level, and pretty easy to work the ball right or left if you have the talent to do this. For a used driver, it was in excellent shape with very little use going by the condition of the head and original grip, which was like new after I clean it with soap and water.
I would recommend this club to any golfer because it is solid and priced well
Summary Review: The hybrid revolution was scoffed at, as were the long and belly putters. The need for this sort of old-time club can be found no further away than your next round of golf. Check out what happens around the greens in your next foursome outing.
In short, these hybrids are a great value but very hard to find. Best clubs in my bag and they will stay there for years to come.
This is one of few clubs I would have no problem recommending to anyone and everyone. So easy to hit, it should be outlawed... Oh wait, they have been for pros lol!
This 11.5* driver is an excellent choice for any golfer looking to hit the ball a little higher for more carry distance. The XL has enough foregiveness for any mid handicap golfer. Loud sound will not make everyone happy, but I rather like the sound. Ball flight is long and straight when I do my part. As a bonus, you can work the ball left or right without too much effort, if you have the talent for working the ball. I think the XL is a great buy for the money if you can find one used.
For $70 this putter blows away the Odyssey rival, about 1/2 the price too. Very well balanced putter, solid feel.
If you like the old Launcher 460. I think you'll like the new 2009 model just as much. Very nice club. For me, the shaft is way too light. But that's the case with all the new drivers on the market. For some reason, all the OEMs think all golfers need a lighter shaft in a driver to get more swing speed. My testing says it's not true. This is a very good driver, if you like a light shaft. Pretty much what you get with all the new drivers today. For the average golfer, I rate it a 5.
probably a great driver for better players. Nice price.
if you have the swing for it, probably a great club. Long and loud, and straight for better players.
Great irons, ball flew further than the CG Gold even. Overall, I'd consider these irons if I were looking to replace mine
