The driver you WON'T try....BUT SHOULD!

  • The golf driver you WON'T try....BUT SHOULD!
    In this video PGA Golf Professional Rick Shiels heads out to the golf course to test a driver that most golfers wouldn't think to try.
    When you look in the golf bags of most amateur golfers and golfers on The PGA Tour & The European Tour you will the same thing. Callaway Golf Drivers, TaylorMade Golf Drivers, Ping Golf Drivers, Titleist Golf Drivers & Cobra Golf Drivers. This driver is different, this driver is from Cleveland Golf & in this video you will hear why Rick Shiels thinks you should try it. Rick tests the new Cleveland Launcher HB Turbo driver and it really impressed him!

    Hi I'm Rick Shiels, welcome to my channel RickShielsPGAGolf. This TheXvid channel is designed to help you play better golf, also to help you enjoy your golf more!
    I specialise in golf club reviews, golf club unboxing, golf club news, golf club head to heads, and all about golf clubs.
    I also want to make you play better golf by providing coaching video on all topics about golf, how to fix your slice, fix your hook, help you drive the golf ball longer, hit your irons more pure, hit your irons closer to the hole and help you draw and fade your golf shots.
    I will also help you lower your score by chipping better by stopping you duff and thin chips, pitch the ball closer and also create backspin. Also I will provide you help to putt better and hole more putts!
    On this channel I also make fun and entertaining golf content based on crazy and sometimes "gimmicky" golf clubs. I like to cut through the marketing hype about products and I like to give you the honest truth about golf equipment.

      Rick Shiels Golf Cobra 440 SZ...didn’t change until 3 years ago 😂 to a Ping G30 LST!

      I have owned Cobra, the original King Cobra Oversized Irons and woods. In fact, I still have my King Cobra 5 metal and 7 metal....and they're in my bag.
      I have also owned a Callaway Big Bertha War Bird driver, and a Taylor Made Bubble Shaft Driver.

      I've used both Taylormade & Titleist, prefer my M2. Previously had a Cleveland Hibore with grafalloy blue shaft which I got for nothing as a promotional gift, it Sat unwrapped for at least 6 months, but when nobody wanted it i decided to give it a go. WOW, best driver I'd had at that stage, a pleasant surprise, so glad I didn't get rid of it. I'm a sucker for change but trying to stay true to my M2.

    The Cleveland launcher comp was a bazooka. That was also around the last time I touched a Cleveland product.

    Thanks Rick! Based largely on your review, I recently purchased the Cleveland Launcher HB Turbo in 10.5 with the standard Miyazaki "R" shaft (although I shortened it from 45.5" to 45"). Think I fall into the category of "simple" golfers who don't want/need adjustability in my driver. From my eye it appears to sit square and has drastically cut down my left to right tendencies. I quite like both the looks & sound, and my only critique would be that Cleveland eliminate the "HiBore Crown" language from the top of the club and paint the alignment aides in a color other than black (too hard to see). I even think Cleveland did a good job with the "boxing glove" head-cover as this is the first one I've seen that has "finger holds" to help you get it off. P.S. I purchased mine off the internet for only $275 which is far better than the $500 (and up!) that most drivers are going for these days.

    aren't Cleveland and Srixon the same company?

    Vijay Singh used Cleveland. I use his old driver the Hi Bore. Still love it.

  • Warren Stubbs
    Warren Stubbs 6 days ago

    Caught the eye but don't know if it would replace my M2, it's set on 11.25 & that suits me. I assume this driver would come in 10.5 then 12 in my range, I've tried taking my driver back to 10.5 but didn't work, that means I'd have to go to 12°, not sure.

    Callayway FT9 and Titleist 910D2 but still fighting with a slice :D

  • The Average Golfer Sway Baez

    I play srixon, love the irons even tho toe to heal a little long. Love the wedges and putter actually. Been waiting for a good driver. Gonna try this. I also have the ping blue print but I couldn’t dial in the new driver It was too spinny for me.

    Cleveland is probably one of the underrated drivers out there, i love how it looks and feels at address which brings confidence.

  • Kyle EricSon
    Kyle EricSon 8 days ago

    Thanks for this review Rick! After watching it multiple times and trying out the Cleveland Turbo HB I found a slightly used model on the internet for only $275. Have only been to the range with it a couple of times so far, but I like it (especially the sound!). As someone who fights a fade/slice, the upright lie angle and slightly closed face are perfect for me (although as you pointed out, it seems to have a slightly left bias so it might not be ideal for everyone). Think I may investigate the 3W next! Thanks again.

  • paul cullinan
    paul cullinan 9 days ago

    Checked out the Cleveland yesterday and not disappointed - I've had a shedload of drivers over xx yrs, but couldn't find one that replicated/improved on the feel of my TM Burner draw bias I've kept, which comes back out when the driving goes off, only problem with the Burner, my spin rates go through roof, just under 5k. Also tested the Wilson D7, but the Cleveland No.s were better (and more consistent/better numbers than my current Cobra F9) and like you say Rick, most of (us) average golfers don't need adjustable drivers, as we never change the settings anyway. So the Cleveland (10.5 degree reg) is now in the bag and I traded the Cobra in, against it!

    Love that you put the hits in rhythm 2:38, even the slow motion one. It's all about the details.

  • bohottie
    bohottie 10 days ago

    The original Launcher driver was the shit back in the day....a lot of guys had them. And, to be 100% honest, most golfers don’t consistently strike the ball well enough for the adjustments to have a significant effect. This driver would be good for a lot of people.

  • Geoff Coombs
    Geoff Coombs 11 days ago

    Sounds like a great driver for an average Joe with a slower swing speed and a bit of a slice, I want one

    Geoff Coombs 11 days ago

    I personally love Cleveland clubs, they're always easy to hit and a good price point

  • Chuck Taylor
    Chuck Taylor 11 days ago

    Sound? It could sound like a fart as long as it hits long and straight. I have a 7-wood I call The Clunker." it sounds like someone kicked an empty 55 gallon oil can, but it goes straight for 190 yards. I can hit it off the fairway or plow through the rough. My 2nd favorite club next to my putter

    Barrett Bryan 12 days ago

    I actually still swing one of their older HiBore drivers and I absolutely love it..
    I have bought a R11, a M1, a RBZ, TS1 and G400 over the last few years. And every time I'll get through a couple 18s and end up with my HiBore right back in the bag.

    That being said, I am glad you posted this because I am now extremely looking forward to picking up one of these new Clevelands!

    Been using Cleveland drivers and 3 woods for a few seasons, highly underrated. Their 588CB irons were excellent too. ATB MMMD

  • chris Flanders
    chris Flanders 15 days ago

    I hit a Cleveland Launcher 11.5 and love that thing. It sounds just like what you were hitting, and its VERY easy to hit. Its one of those clubs if your having a bad day at the course you will at least have a safe tee shot. Or if your wanting to "bend" one around a corner its very easy to do with this club.

    Hi rick, loving the videos they really are a help to a newbe, I have been on a couple of lessons now and have a very cheap set of clubs however, everyone I go to the range or lessons they say " these cheap clubs won't help you learn you need Taylor made or Callaway driver and wedges, is this right or can I still learn with a cheap set of donnay clubs many thanks in advance

    I still rock my M2 from 2016! I haven't hit anything (and I've tried every new and "improved" driver) better, longer or more consistent than the M2! It's ridiculous to spend $500 for a driver that I might hit 5 yards more? We're all much better off spending that on lessons!

    I have a Cleveland Launcher 3 wood, 12 or so years old. It's just an incredible club. I've tried so many of the newer fairways but nothing comes close to the feel and weighty head of my Cleveland. I will try this driver, thanks!

    I currently play a Ping G, the Cleveland looks great but I would be put off by the toed in look. Great looking driver though. How was Clitheroe playing Rick?
