Cleveland Launcher XL Halo

We tested: 15°, 18°, 21°

Our take: The Launcher XL Halo woods are made to launch the ball with ease, helping golfers get the ball airborne just as easily from the fairway as it is off the tee. Which speaking of these woods are the next best thing to using a Cleveland driver—so much that we were amazed at how far the ball flew, almost catching up to how far we hit the Launcher XL driver. They’re both very easy to hit and exceptionally forgiving as well. Our misses were dare we say, still really good.

Tired of duffing your woods? Because these Cleveland Launcher XL Halo woods have Gliderail tech that helps improve turf interaction for better shots off the deck. When you mix that with oversized heads, low centers of gravity, and Rebound Frame, you’ll duff ‘em less and launch ‘em more.

The details: Featuring a bigger head with a higher MOI for added stability, the XL Halo fairway woods also include Gliderail tech on the sole for stability, a Rebound Frame for more energy transfer and Action Mass CB (counterbalancing) for improved balance and feel.
