What we say...
Distance and dispersion was where the Launcher DST reallyexcelled. This was among the longest on test for pro Chris and Leon who both said this was the best driver Cleveland had ever produced. Chris liked the teardrop-shaped head and said
it would definitely appeal to the traditionalists. The Launcher DST was also the straightest club on test for John. So, even though he did not get great distance with it... this would probably work better for him on the course. David said he was a big fan of the previous Launcher but was impressed at how much Cleveland had been able to improve on it. He said the lightweight shaft aided swing speed and that the face felt powerful out of the middle and forgiving when he didn’t quite catch it. A top-notch driver for a manufacturer better known for its wedges.
