• Cleveland Golf engineers worked closely with Miyazaki Shafts and Lamkin grips to remove weight from both the shaft and grip, reducing total club weight by 30 grams
• This lighter but balanced club produces faster clubhead speed and more ball speed from the tee or fairway
• An increase in clubhead speed up to 3mph is expected due to the decreased club weight

A defining moment in the company’s growth was its acquisition by Skis Rossignol, S.A. in 1990. Since that time, Cleveland has experienced tremendous growth and now has employees numbering over 300, a National sales force of 70 and enjoys worldwide distribution. In its growth, the company has remained steadfastly committed to providing “Tour proven, premium golf equipment to passionate golfers at prices that ensure value to consumers”

2011 Hot List
Silver Medal
Cleveland's fairway wood line includes three 3-woods of different lofts and launch characteristics but with the same clubhead size and shaft length. Each club weighs about 30 grams less than a typical fairway wood. Weight is saved thanks to an especially lightweight Miyazaki shaft and Lamkin grip. A lighter club, Cleveland says, leads to more clubhead speed and longer distance.
Low-Handicapper:
"I know it's supposed to be lighter, but it doesn't feel strange to me."..."Trajectory off the tee and the turf was the same. That's a rare combination to find."
Middle-Handicapper:
"There's not much to dislike about this club-it sounds and feels like an iron. The clubhead is exceptionally stable through impact, and it goes farther than most."..."Reminds me of the Cleveland Launcher of old."
Hot:
A bold step in the direction of speed. Plus, there are three 3-woods. We especially like the easy-to-use 17-degree model.
Not:
The gold-colored shaft and slightly closed face are distracting at address.
