The new Cleveland Launcher Fairway Wood promises an 11 % larger clubface than any previous Launcher wood to provide more forgiveness. Cleveland have also increased the Moment of Inertia to over 3000 which helps make the Launcher one of the most stable fairway woods around.
In our tests the Launcher fairway wood performed extremely well off both the fairway and the tee and the low spin and mid launch trajectory will appeal to players of all abilities.
Cleveland’s improvements are certainly noticeable and the added forgiveness means this is a fairway wood that you will be able to use with a lot of confidence and should suit a wide range of players.
Better players may prefer a more workable wood but for the mid to high handicappers the Cleveland Launcher fairway wood certainly deserves consideration.
The Launcher fairway wood comes as a 13, 15 or 17 degree three wood and as 19 degree 5 wood or 22 degree 7 wood and is certainly great value for money.
The Cleveland Launcher fairway wood comes with the Cleveland Eee Zee Grab headcover as standard and these not only look great but are much easier to get on and off than many of the head covers on the market today.

Cleveland 2009 Launcher Fairway Wood - Product Details
Another very solid Launcher offering from Cleveland. It's not inspirational or breathtaking but it doesn't have to be because it does exactly what it needs to. Also great off the tee so a good driver substitute if you required.
