Players with slower swing speeds don't hit the ball as far and therefore often find themselves with a lot of longer shots from the fairway and in need of a variety of options to get the ball on the green.
For this category of players the choice and range of fairway and hybrids in their bag and the suitability of these clubs to slower swing speeds is critical to success.
As with the CG Black 2015 drivers, Cleveland Golf has focussed on developing clubs that maximise distance and performance for players who don't swing it like the pro's.
Both the CG Black fairway and CG Black hybrids have been designed with a lower swing MOI to help promote a swing that results in higher head speed and greater distance from the same amount of effort.
This increased head speed is translated to the ball across the face by Cleveland's Variable Face Technology. The faces of both the fairways and hybrids differs by up to 1.8 mm from the thicker centre of the club to the thinner perimeters, thereby maintaining ball speed across possible impact positions.
Trajectory is also crucial to maximising carry and therefore distance on these shots, and Cleveland has improved the centre of gravity location in the 2015 CG Black fairways and hybrids to this end.
In comparison to the 2012 CG Black models the centre of gravity has been moved both lower and further forward in the club head. The result is a higher launch angle with lower spin that results in a more carry and a longer flight.
Cleveland recognises that slower swing players tend to carry more metals in their bags so across the fairway wood and hybrids they offer a wide range of lofts to ensure that players can gap themselves properly and give themselves enough scope to maximise their play from the fairways.
CG Black Fairway Woods come in five models from 3 to 9 woods with lofts of 15°, 16.5°, 18°, 20° and 23° with five CG Black Hybrids also available at lofts of 17°, 19°, 21°, 24° and 27°.
