Today's drivers are large, long and jacked full of new technology. We're here to help you discover the perfect driver so you can launch the ball a mile.

Cleveland Launcher DST Review

Build it light for a longer flight. A lighter club means greater club head speed which will propel your ball further down the fairway. This basic principle is at the heart of Cleveland’s Sub 300g technology, and the Launcher DST brings it all together.

Beware, though, as this is not the big bopper for the newbie. Cleveland has matched a Mitsubishi Diamana Red 45.75 inch shaft weighing in at a mere 47 grams. If you haven’t mastered a solid, fundamentally sound swing the extra length will simply allow a deeper exploration of the surrounding wooded countryside.

With that said, though, the good golfer might just love this bat. With a total weight of only 292 grams, almost 10 percent lighter than the standard driver, the Launcher DST still maintains a D4 swing weight, giving it a presence in the hands that is amazing considering its actual heft.

The head appears traditional, as that has evolved. With a maxed out 460cc volume and a familiar pear shape, there is very little crazy design flash that would suggest the innovation that this driver represents. If anything, the appearance of the club is deceiving, not striving for attention from the bag. It may even be just a bit boring. If your bragging rights are greatest at the beginning of your round as you unload your trunk rather than when the scores are added up, this may not be your club. However, if you are the last man standing after splitting fairways all day with bombs from the tee, try the Cleveland Launcher DST.

There are a few models available to try to dial the lightweight champ to your game. There is a draw model that closes things down by 3 degrees, and the pro tour model goes the other way, building in a fade and pairing down the head size to 430cc and sporting a slightly heavier and half an inch shorter Diamana White shaft.

The design principle behind the Cleveland Launcher DST could not be simpler, and they have pushed the envelope to achieve a super lightweight driving machine that could feel like the right stuff in the hands of the golfer that knows how to use it. Take a peak at our selection of Cleveland Drivers to see if you find a match for your game.
