“Faster” 2020 Cleveland Launcher HB Turbo fairway woods revealed

Published

on

Cleveland Golf has introduced its new 2020 Cleveland Launcher HB turbo fairway woods, which feature a lighter hosel, improved crown, and deeper weighting.

The Launcher HB Turbo contains a Turbocharged Cup Face featuring a variable thickness pattern designed to deliver more speed across the entire face. According to the company, the Turbocharged Cup Face in the new Cleveland fairway wood stretches across the crown and sole, flexing at impact and reflecting that energy back into the ball for increased ball speeds at impact.

The new additions from Cleveland Golf see a redesigned HiBore Crown featuring a prominent step for a lower center of gravity, while the Ultralight Hosel on the woods is lighter than its predecessors in a bid to remove “mass from a poor position.”

The weight savings in the Launcher HB Turbo fairway woods have produced a deep weighting sole pad with a center of gravity that’s 4.4mm deeper and 2.2mm lower than previous additions and aims to provide golfers with increased launch at impact, maximum distance off the tee, as well as added forgiveness.

Speaking on the upcoming launch of the fairway woods, Brian Schielke, Marketing Director at Cleveland Golf, stated

“Reintroducing Cleveland Golf Woods and Irons two years ago has been very successful. However, the new Launcher HB Turbo woods represent a huge step up from the previous generation. They’re sleeker, faster, and more forgiving–exactly what all of us avid golfers are looking for off the tee.”

The Launcher HB Turbo also comes equipped with the new Miyazaki C. Kua shaft, which pulls weight from the length of the shaft and repositions it on the grip end. The function of this weight redistribution is to allow for extra mass in the clubhead and to offer increased momentum and more speed on each swing.

The Launcher HB Turbo Fairway Woods feature a 3-wood (15-degree) and 5-wood (18-degree) at a MAP of $229.99 each, and will be available to purchase from October 4.

    They have no idea what a real turbo is and how it works!
    .
    And writing on the top of the crown? That is a cardinal sin! Stop with the gimmicky bling. We do t need fins on the crown, it’s not an F1 car!

    Ok I can’t take it anymore, “the Turbocharged Cup Face” now, it will never end will it? Engines have turbo compressors, club faces don’t and never will. This article is yet another great example of the desperation that runs both at WRX and the OEMs at getting and or keeping cash flows running. As usual, all claims in this article ( I don’t even think this qualifies as an article it’s a disguised ad really )are unsubstantiated with any hard data that would give golfers a chance at finding out whether or not there is any difference in measurable performance between last year’s model and this latest “turbo charged” cup face nonsense. In no other industry do you see this amount of disregard by the sellers towards potential buyers capacity to think things through like intelligent human beings.

Forum Thread of the Day: “Kiradech Aphibarnrat’s custom SuperStroke grips”

Published

on

Today’s Forum Thread of the Day showcases Kiradech Aphibarnrat’s custom SuperStroke grips. The shape of the grips has been given the seal of approval from WRXers who have been keenly discussing the SuperStroke creations in our forums.

Here are a few posts from the thread, but make sure to check out the entire discussion and have your say at the link below.

  • JCM96: “Love SuperStroke’s texture and feel. If they would just release their tapered grips, they’d get a stranglehold of the putter grip market.”
  • jgolf215: “Interesting shape. The colors are pretty understated for him. I would have expected a much brighter green.”
  • nova6868: “Really like the shape on those. Would definitely buy one if they were available.”
  • GoIrish17: “What’s it say? SGP1.0? I like the shape of it; I hope it comes to retail (or SuperStroke sells them through their eBay store). It looks like a grip I’d like to try.”

Forum Thread of the Day: “New SeeMore putters”

SeeMore Putter

Today’s Forum Thread of the Day showcases an array of new SeeMore putters. The new flat-sticks from SeeMore have been a hot topic for discussion amongst our members, with the brand’s plumber neck additions garnering plenty of reaction.

For lots more photos, check out the full forum thread here.

Here are a few posts from the thread, but make sure to check out the entire discussion and have your say on the new putters at the link below.

  • bunta: “The fact that they put the alignment line on the topline of the Ancers makes me feel obligated to give them a try.”
  • poppman2142: “So the plumbers going into the head at such a severe angle is making them face-balanced I assume? I guess I would prefer the hosel to angle towards the center of the face and have the shaft angle back where it enters the hosel, so I don’t see the entire length of the hosel at address to make it face balanced. To each their own I guess!”
  • MaineMariner: “Those are some very interesting and unique hosels. Gotta hand it to SeeMore, they sure are innovative. I could definitely see myself grabbing that plumber’s neck notchback.”
