Cleveland Launcher DST Fairway Woods
From Golf Magazine (ClubTest, May 2010)
Category: Fairway Woods
We tested: 3w Low Trajectory (13°), 3w Standard (15°), 3w High Trajectory (17°) with Mitsubishi Ultralite Diamana Red 64 graphite shaft; 3w Low Trajectory (13°) and 3w Standard (15°) with Mitsubishi Diamana 83 graphite shaft
Company line: "Launcher DST has the largest face of any Launcher fairway wood. Additional toe and heel area provide more forgiveness on mis-hits."
OUR TESTERS SAY:
PROS: Three different 3-wood options (13°, 15°, 17°) allow you to match clubhead loft (strong, standard or high) to your desired ball flight; many panelists are quite satisfied with distance on good hits; Launcher DST is easy to work; crisp feel on flushed hits; simple, attractive, straightforward shape.
CONS: A nice package but it lacks the "wow" factor, that one distinguishing feature that gets testers really excited; inconsistent distance on misses; a few panelists find the head to be too large.
