Cleveland Launcher Fairway Woods

5 posts in this topic

Just wanted to hear from people who use these in their bags....I picked a 5 wood this week and I am amazed how easy it is to hit these woods....
Debating about dumping my Titleist 904F 15 degree for another one of these....Do the Launcher Composite seem a lot better?? I have previously used Taylormade V steel and Callaway Big Bertha and clearly these are very easy to use.... I feel like I am cheating with these clubs....

I love the Launcher fairway woods. I had an original Launcher steel three wood that I just upgraded to the 2006 Launcher Steel version. Not a ton of difference, lower profile and a little more "springy" at impact with the newer one. I have a Comp 13 degree and it doesn't get the start over my 15 degree steel version. I like the Composite head in my driver but I prefer a steel head for a fairway wood. A little easier to get it up in the air and hit off the ground. Off the tee the Comp is probably better. I think the Comp head is slightly larger than the steel head and I prefer a smaller clubhead in my fairway woods (easier to hit off the ground for me). Really though I don't think you can go wrong. I think they are very underrated fairway woods (much like Cleveland is underrated IMO with their drivers).

I did demo the HiBore 3 wood and was close to putting it in my bag. I hit it well and it seemed to fly pretty long. Also the inverted crown helped get the ball up, even from the rough. To be honest, I flat out couldn't take the look so I opted for the 2006 Launcher Steel 3 Wood, which happened to be a better deal too.

The Comp is a good fairway wood too, make no mistake about it. For me, the steel just seems to be a better fit but some may prefer the comp.

      paradoxal bank fact : in our banks in france if you take a mortgage of 100 000 euros for 20 years at 2,5 interest rate you will probably pay close to 30 000 euros of interest. this seams huge to customers. nevertheless the bank might loose money or have à max a 200 euros margin per year. the only way we make money is on the mortgage insurance policy part and getting a long time customer in the bank.

    • Myrtle Beach in early March part duex
      Okay I think you may be a little confused on your location...You said that you are staying at Holiday Sands North close to the Boardwalk.  Your Hotel is centrally located in Myrtle Beach.  A lot of people not familiar of the area mistakenly think that "North Myrtle Beach" is referring to an area in the Northern part of Myrtle Beach.  Actually it is a separate city that is located a good ten miles from where you are staying.  The closest "North Myrtle Beach" courses to you would be the Barefoot Resort courses which are about 13 miles from you and are considered higher end courses where you will be paying probably around $125 per round to play unless you book a package deal or play with a member.  The next closest North Myrtle Beach courses which are mid-tiered and a little more price friendly that may seem to be what you are looking for are a little farther north into North Myrtle located probably about 15 to 17 miles from where you are staying.   The closest courses to where you are staying include Myrtlewood, Pine Lakes Country Club, River Oaks Plantation, World Tour, and the Legends courses.  All are probably right within the amount of travel time that you are looking at.  I would second the earlier poster that you contact @bnlongdriver.  Tell him (Brian) what you are looking for and he will set you up nicely.  I would definitely avoid GolfNow for anything related to Myrtle Beach.  Very few courses down there work with Golf Now and the few that do are lower tiered courses that you probably wouldn't want to play as there are many better choices for the money that you will be playing.  Looks like you will be going right as the peak golf season is starting to get underway so last minute deals, although probably available, will be a bit more difficult to come by.  However, if this is the route that you want to take, again I would contact Brian as he has the ability to get a lot of very good "48 hour" rates.  If you go ahead and contact him now and let him know that's the way you want to go, he will be able to keep you in mind and as the time of your arrival nears will have a better idea of what to find you.

    • PGA Tour Caddies file class-action suit against PGA Tour for use of likeness, bibs
      It's just funny to me since the PGA Tour isn't their employer. The golfers are, so every case they file against the PGA will be tossed out immediately on that grounds alone.  The players require caddies to wear bibs since the players are fined if they don't. The PGA has nothing to do with the transaction besides providing a uniform for the caddy with the entrance fee.
