Now Playing: Cleveland Launcher
It’s back. It’s black. It’s bigger than ever. The new Cleveland Launcher ($299) has a face area that’s an amazing 21 percent bigger than the previous Launcher and Launcher Comp, meaning if you can’t hit it solid with this driver, you ought to try another sport. In addition, the Launcher has a razor-thin crown, which enabled designers to push the weight low and deep into the clubhead. Other features include a horseshoe design for enhanced perimeter weighting and a new Fujikura Fit-On FLIGHTSPEED shaft that has the highest balance point available. That translates into more clubhead speed and, you guessed it, more distance.  Visit

PING Perfection
The new iWi series ($190-$220), from PING features six models, all of which come standard with a two-piece face insert and two, 12-gram steel sole weights in the toe and heel of the putter that can be swapped out for a custom feel (optional weight kit sold separately for $70). Visit
