The Cleveland Launcher Ultralite TL310 driver is fitted with a smaller 440cc head which actually looks pretty good. The lofts are slightly different in the TL310 compared to the other drivers in the range at 8 and a half, 9 and a half and 10 and a half degrees. The 59 gram Miyazaki C. Kua Ultralite shaft looks great in the classic Cleveland gold and is half an inch shorter than the SL290. The flex code system gives the shaft great performance and is probably a little stiffer than average. The smaller head is aimed at better players who want to move the ball around a little more and you do feel more in control of this driver thanks to its shorter shaft. The sound and feel were excellent and this is one of the best drivers for low handicappers in the market.

Cleveland Launcher TL310 Driver - Product Details
I bought a Callaway FT-5 two weeks ago after hitting both it and the Cleveland TL310 on the launch monitor. I bought the Callaway as the monitor was telling me that it was only about 10 metres behind the TL310 but was $150 less.
I took the FT-5 out the next day and couldnt keep it on the fairways everything was going right and not only that but it was incredibly short. At least 20 metres behind my old steel headed nickent driver (Won't ever trust launch monitor again). I took it back to the shop and promptly swapped it for the Cleveland TL310 plus $150. Best decision i have ever made this thing is almost impossible to hit off line and the face is smoking hot. The best thing is that because it is so light you dont have to go after it at all to get distance.
Managed to try the Cleveland TL310 the other day, 9.5 degree with stiff Miyazaki shaft. What a driver, its awsome! Hitting into quite a strong wind and was getting great distance. The fight is fantastic, a nice penatrating flight, great carry and distance. The head which is 440cc sits amazingly behind the ball, very square. The driver had a stiff shaft and I was hitting it very straight, some shots had a nice draw. Very easy to play a fade with the driver too. The length of shaft was just right for me too. I presently have a Cleveland DST Tour but definitely going to change to the TL310, best driver Cleveland has brought out in years.
