Cleveland Introduces Launcher HB Turbo and Launcher UHX Irons
Cleveland recently released their Launcher HB Turbo and Launcher UHX irons, built for more speed and precision. The Launcher HB Turbo irons deliver maximum forgiveness and an easy-to-hit to profile specifically targeted at game improvement players looking for more distance and greater accuracy.
These irons maintain a fully hollow construction, allowing for optimized sole weighting to launch shots higher. They now incorporate a high-strength turbocharged face insert that is thinner and hotter for more speed. Stabilizing ribs provide added forgiveness.
Its redesigned HiBore crown pushes the center of gravity low and deep within the base of the Launcher HB Turbo irons. This placement produces shots that launch off the face, fly high and stay on their intended target line. Progressive shaping throughout the entire set maintains forgiveness in the longer irons, with compact short irons to provide optimal control. This shaping provides a smooth transition from hybrid-like long irons to iron-like short irons. It’s a seamless changeover with forgiveness where you need it and control where you want it.
“These irons allow game improvement players the ability to get the ball into the air better than any iron on the market,” said Dustin Brekke, Director of Engineering, Research and Development. “Now with a thinner, hotter face, the Launcher HB Turbo irons give you a half club more distance over the previous generation.”
According to Cleveland, Launcher UHX irons are the most progressive combo set of hollow and cavity back irons on the market. They incorporate hollow long irons (4-7-irons) for more distance and forgiveness, with lower and deeper weighting compared to traditional cavity back irons. The 8-iron through pitching wedge feature a cavity back construction, which focuses on precision and control rather than maximizing distance. The result is a seamless transition to create one unified iron set.
Launcher UHX irons feature a high strength, variable steel face insert incorporated into each long iron for higher ball speeds across the entire face. The latest iteration of the V-shaped sole offers added forgiveness and improved speed retention. Cleveland’s proprietary Tour zip grooves and enhanced laser milling deliver reliable, consistent spin when attacking the pin.
Launcher UHX utility irons will also be sold individually. Offered in 3, 4 and 5-iron lofts, they deliver the distance and forgiveness of a hybrid in an iron-like address profile.
“This combination of cavity back and utility irons into one set offers the perfect blend of distance and accuracy,” Brekke said. “A new variable face pattern delivers more distance due to hotter faces with better mass distribution.”
Launcher HB Turbo and UHX irons are each available in both men’s and women’s models, with right- and left-hand options.
