We'll lead off with the Classic XL drivers.
What does the "XL" stand for in these 2013 drivers from Cleveland Golf? Extra large - as in, the largest and deepest clubface of any driver yet made by Cleveland, and the largest sweetspot, as well.
The enlarged sweet spot in the Classic XL driver works in tandem with the variable face thickness to minimize loss of ball speed on off-center strikes, promoting distance and forgiveness.
The stock shaft on the Cleveland Classic XL driver is the Miyazaki B.Asha 4 graphite that is geared to a mid-high trajectory. The driver comes in lofts of 9.0, 10.5 and 12.0 degrees, with an MAP of $249.99.
And then there's the Cleveland Classic XL Custom driver - the first adjustable driver released by Cleveland Golf.
There are four premium shafts among the options: Miyazaki JDL 6 (mid-launch); Miyazaki JDL 5 (lightweight, mid-launch); Mitsubishi Fubuki Tour 53 (high launch); and Matrix OZIK 6M3 Black Tie (low launch).
The Classic XL Custom comes in lofts of 7.5, 9.0 and 10.5 degrees, and has an MAP of $329.99.
