Cleveland Used Driver Trade Grabbing a used Cleveland Launcher DST Driver means grabbing a 2010 Golf Digest Hot List gold medal winner. The DST was designed to be light--what the manufacturer calls Ultralite Technolgy. According to Cleveland, it's the lightest big dog on the PGA Tour weighing about 25 grams lighter overall than a standard driver Pas Cher Nike free running. Less weight should give you some extra club head speed and maybe the extra 3-10 yards you're looking for in your next driver. Weight isn't the only thing Cleveland has focused on with this club. They use variable face thickness to improve their coefficient of restitution, COR. This means that even hits missing the sweet spot, will still deliver a nice trampoline effect-which means more ball speed, and again maybe some extra distance from your mish-its. One of the ways Cleveland did this in the DST is by removing 9 grams of weight from the face, and positioned that weight low and deep in the 460cc club head to improve it's moment of inertia Pas Cher Nike free, MOI. The Cleveland DST Driver is set up to deliver more distance in their stock shaft. The Ultralite Diamana Red 44 Shaft in the DST is a little longer than standard at 45.75" and is fairly lightweight at 47g to again increase your swing speed that extra 3-5 mph. The Cleveland Launcher DST Driver comes in lofts of 9, 10.5, 12 (RH Only) and in A, R, S flexes. The Cleveland Launcher DST Draw Driver has a 3 closed face, draw biased weighting, and no offset. The draw model is only available right handed, lofts of 9, 10.5, 12, and in A, R, S flexes. The Cleveland Launcher DST Tour Driver has a 2 open face and a compact 430cc pear shaped head design. The tour model is available with shorter Diamana White 64 stock shafts at 45.125, which are also a little bit heavier at 67g, and lofts of 8.5 (RH Only), 9.5, and 10.5 (RH Only). Cleveland Hi-Bore Monster XLS Driver Used Golf Club Trade-in Value, Good Condition: $45 The Cleveland Hi-Bore Monster XLS is the capstone of the Hi-Bore Driver line and Cleveland went with trusted shaft-maker Fujikura for their stock shafts. The Fujikura Flightspeed Fit-On Red/Gold Shaft Fitting System seeks to match golfers with the right shaft action to get their best club head speed and ball flight. The Fit-On Gold graphite shaft features a low-mid kick point for increased launch angle for maximum distance with smooth feel. The Fit-On Red graphite shaft is designed for players with fast swing speeds. The Red features a mid-high kick point and low torque, which allows skilled players to control their trajectory The Hi-Bore Monster XLS has what Cleveland calls a sweet spot = hot spot. The club head designers moved weight lower and deeper in the club head, aligning the center of gravity projection (CGP) with the coefficient of restitution (COR) in the center of the face. Placing 24 grams of weight in 3 optimized perimeter locations, allows the moment of inertia (MOI) to approach the USGA limit of 5900 g-cm2. This alignment seeks to produce distance by optimizing launch conditions and creating higher ball speeds. Upon release, the Hi-Bore Monster XLS Driver was touted as Cleveland's largest big dog ever. It was designed to meet the USGA limit dimensions, and has a 16% larger face than the original XLS. All of this means that the deeper, wider face profile paired with limit dimensions provide Cleveland's largest hitting area ever for ultimate forgiveness and maximum stability. Some of the driver's other features include a crown plaque alignment aid, a standard grip tread design for maximum control, and Cleveland's EZ-Grab head cover. The stock shaft is slight above standard at 45.50" and comes in lofts of 8.5 (RH Only), 9.5, 10.5, and 11.5 (RH Only). The Fujikura Flightspeed Fit-On Gold comes in flexes A, R, S, and X and weighs 50g. The Fujikura Flightspeed Fit-On Red comes in flexes R Pas Cher Nike Air Max, S, and X and weighs 60g. The draw model features a 3 closed face, offset design, and draw biased weighting. The tour model is only available to righties, features a 2 open face, a fade biased weighting, a compact 440cc head design, and is available in lofts of 8.5, 9.5, and 10.5. Cleveland decided that while club head development was allowing golfers to gain yards off the tee, proper shaft selection was still lagging behind. This is why Cleveland Golf and Fujikura worked together to develop a two shaft fitting system specifically designed to maximize the performance of the Hi-Bore XLS driver. The theory is that matching golfers with the right shaft action will get them the best club head speed and ball flight. The Fit-On Gold graphite shaft features a low-mid kick point for increased launch angle for maximum distance with smooth feel. The Fit-On Red graphite shaft is designed for players with fast swing speeds. The Red features a mid-high kick point and low torque, which allows skilled players to control their trajectory. The Hi-Bore XLS Driver is a 460cc square faced driver, which still brings some good titanium club head technology to the tee. Cleveland moved weight low and deep in the club head to align the sweet spot with the hot spot, added some stability foils, and increased the club face size 17% from the Hi-Bore XL. These changes extended the maximum .830 coefficient of restitution (COR) across more of the face, and increased the moment of inertia (MOI) 13% more from the Hi-Bore XL. The Hi-Bore XLS is available in lofts of 8.5 (RH Only), 9.5, 10.5, and 11.5 (RH Only). The Fujikura Flightspeed Fit-On Gold comes in flexes A, R, S, and X and weighs 50g. The Fujikura Flightspeed Fit-On Red comes in flexes R, S, and X and weighs 60g. Cleveland 2009 Launcher Ultralite Driver Used Golf Club Trade-in Value, Good Condition: $45 The 2009 Launcher Ultralight is the last of the Cleveland launcher drivers. Its familiar club head design was matched with the Fujikura's two shaft fitting system specifically designed to maximize the performance of the driver Acheter Nike chaussures. The theory is that matching golfers with the right shaft action will get them the best club head speed and ball flight. The Fit-On Gold graphite shaft features a low-mid kick point for increased launch angle for maximum distance with smooth feel. The Fit-On Red graphite shaft is designed for players with fast swing speeds Pas Cher Nike chaussures. The Red features a mid-high kick point and low torque, which allows skilled players to control their trajectory. Cleveland designed a horseshoe-shaped weight pad on the rear perimeter of the sole that localizes weight low and deep. This club head design is intended to improve launch conditions and stability on mis-hits by improving both MOI and CG location. The 2009 Cleveland Launcher UL's club face is 21% larger than both the original Launcher 460 and Launcher Comp. The manufacturer also made the crown as the thin as they dared, moving every bit of potential weight low and deep. The driver was designed to produce a mid-trajectory, mid-spin design, which should result in a penetrating traditional ball flight. The 460cc 2009 Launcher UL is available in lofts of 9, 10.5, and 12 (RH Only). The Fujikura Flightspeed Fit-On Gold comes in flexes A, R, S, and X and weighs 50g. The Fujikura Flightspeed Fit-On Red comes in flexes R, S, and X and weighs 60g.
