How do you value a driver?

A simple question with many, many answers.

Do you prefer beastly bombability or fairway-finding friendliness? Do you need moveable weights and adjustable hosels, or would you rather just grip it and rip it? Does it have to look pretty and sound sweet, or do you really only care about performance?

There are no right or wrong answers here – it just what you value.

And if the mystical yards-per-dollar matrix floats your boat, you just may find value in the Cleveland Launcher HB driver – and we want to give you the chance to find out.




Cleveland turned back the clock a decade or so with the new Launcher – reviving not only the classic Launcher name but also bringing back a modified HiBore crown. In true throwback style, the new Launcher features a non-adjustable glued hosel and carries a very 2008-ish price tag of $299.00.

The off-the-rack Launcher proved to be a solid, upper-half performer in MyGolfSpy’s 2018 Most Wanted Driver testing. It finished in a 4-way tie for 11th (right after a 5-way tie for 6th), only 3 yards shy of the champ, the PING G400 LST. That’s how the off-the-rack model performed for us, but we want to find out how a customized model will perform for you.

We’re looking for three avid golfers to test and review (and keep) a Cleveland Launcher HB driver, customized with any premium shaft in the Cleveland lineup (click here to check them out).

You read that correctly.
