Has anyone tried these clubs? They interest me being a relatively high handicapper. The certainly would simplify my bag, (getting rid of my two hybrids and 7 wood). I'm looking at the 4 through PW set, ( I have trouble hitting long irons).

The Launcher HB irons would really hit the ball high - but possibly too high.

Also check out the Launcher CBX: good lofts and head design, but slightly heavier shaft.

Given I puled the trigger I'll let you know how they work out. I live on Long Island, NY so it will be a while given we're facing another nor'easter on Wednesday. When will Spring really arrive????

When the road crews start working on the roads, I feel your pain.

The roads do need a lot of work, this winter, especially March, has been a bitch. Can't wait for spring but they are predicting our being in the 40s for at least the next week.

Yeah, we're getting some 40s this week, too.

I received the Cleveland HB Launcher irons yesterday and took them to the range today. I purchased the 4 through the gap wedge, (which they call a "dual" wedge, marked with a "D", go figure). Anyway, hit around 100 balls off the mat and I can say that I really like the clubs. With my swing they don't launch the ball that high, nice flight. I can't really tell distance given they are range balls and they were cold, (high 40s today) but shots were straight and felt good off the club. Can't wait to get them on the course and hit off of real grass. I will have to dial in the length though, they "feel" longer than my G25s.

How much longer @cooke119, about a half a club or so?

At least half a club, probably more. I like hybrids and that is what these clubs are. I really liked the feel and flight of the 5 and 4 irons (hybrids).

check this review out.

 

I watch a lot of Mark Crossfield reviews / VLOGs and I did watch this review, one of the reasons I purchased them. So far, so good.

Will finally play with the new clubs this coming Friday (the 13th). Can't wait to play them off of grass. The range I go to, (only one open in the winter), has horrible balls so I have little to no idea what the distance is going to be with each club. I guess I'll start with my "usual " distance and see what happens. I haven't played for months so this will be interesting.

Will do, I'm also hitting the Costco Kirkland four piece ball so new clubs, new ball, should be interesting.
