The Cleveland Launcher Ultralite XL270 driver has one of the lightest shafts and combined club weights we have come across in a standard driver.
The 270 gram club has a 39 gram shaft in it that is also an inch longer than normal at 46 and a quarter inches. This does give you more distance but it did not feel as easy to control, although the accuracy was pretty good.
The club did feel very light but in a good way and the excellent Miyazaki shaft and 26 gram Winn grip both helped deliver a fun golf club.
The slightly closed face may put some off at address but it did make it easier to get the ball airborne than its sister SL290 driver.
It was great to see the classic Cleveland gold shaft back again and the cambered sole relief not only looked good but helped the club sit beautifully at address.
