Gear Trials 2018: Cleveland Launcher HB

Published

on

Specs

  • Head size: 460cc
  • Adjustable? No
  • Lofts: 9, 10.5, 12 degrees
  • Price: $300

What you need to know

Instead of offering adjustability and a range of configurations, Cleveland opts for forgiveness and ball-speed boosting features with the Launcher HB. The HiBore crown shifts the center of gravity low and deep within the club, which promotes a high-launching, low-spinning golf shot. The drivers also have Flex-Fins and Cup Face designs for distance-boosting benefits.

    I tried this club for 8-10 rounds, 12 degree, lite Shaft.. Unable to control it. Did not match the results from the fitter computer.Launch is way too high for me. I went for a 2nd refit and did not get the same results as first test. Once in a while I’d hit a boomer, but seldom. Mostly hooks and slices.
    I went back to my old Callaway 454 Ti driver and got better distance and predictable shots.

    I would NOT recommend.

Tour Edge launches new Exotics EXS Driver

Published

on

Tour Edge has introduced its new Exotics EXS Driver, which, according to the company, is designed for those golfers who seek a quality, high-performing product, but are constrained by budget.

The main feature of the brand-new product from Tour Edge is its Flight Tuning System (FTS). FTS allows adjustable sole weights to alternate between two different settings. Here’s a rundown of the two settings and what they are designed to provide:

  • FTS1: Nine-gram weight in the heel, three-gram weight in the rear for lower spin, slice reducing shape and a medium launch.
  • FTS2: Three-gram weight in the heel and a nine-gram weight in the rear for medium spin, neutral shape and a higher launch.

The New Exotics EXS Driver will also feature RollFace Technology and a new and improved SlipStream Sole. The RollFace technology incorporates modified bulge and roll on the toe, which is designed to promote straighter shots on balls hit off the toe. According to Tour Edge, the technology, combined with the enhanced sweet spot, makes this the most forgiving driver face ever produced by the company. Along with this, the new wider speed channels on the SlipStream sole are intended to improve club head speed.

Tour Edge President and Master Club Designer David Glod, explained why he believes the New Exotics EXS Driver will have a more significant impact on the market than any other Tour Edge driver before it.

“The EXS driver is absolutely loaded with technology. This is the most technology we’ve ever been able to fit into a design, and each one works in concert with one another to provide the best performing driver possible.”

“The shapes are beautiful, and we utilized only the finest in materials and components. I believe that at the aggressive price point that we are offering, the EXS driver will have its highest impact on the driver market over any other previous Exotics release.”

The New Exotics EXS Driver from Tour Edge will be available to purchase from Nov. 1, 2018, and will cost $299.

Spotted: A new Odyssey “Stroke Lab Three” prototype putter

Published

on

Correction: This story originally reported this putter was in Patrick Reed’s bag. After further investigation, it was not.

Spotted at the 2018 Tour Championship at East Lake was an Odyssey Stroke Lab Three prototype putter. The putter appears to have a milled head and Odyssey’s familiar White Hot Microhinge face insert.

Stroke Lab may be a familiar name for some who know the Stroke Lab putters from around 2017. Mostly only available in the Japan Domestic Market (JDM), the Stroke Lab putters weighed heavier in the head — about 15 grams — and lighter in the shaft (about 29 grams), according to descriptions from True Spec Golf.

Is this a sign of things to come from Odyssey, or just a one-off? It would seem given the familiar name that it’s more the former than the latter, but only time will tell. What do you think about the Stroke Lab Three putter? Do you think it will be available in America at some point?
