Cleveland Launcher Fairway Woods

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
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....

Re: Cleveland Launcher Fairway Woods

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.
