New Launcher UHX Irons
Cleveland’s hollow cavity back offering
Cleveland’s brand-new Launcher UHX Irons claim to be the most progressive combo set of hollow and cavity back irons on the market. As the company boldly states, they provide a completely new way to approach one complete set of irons.
“This combination of cavity back and utility irons into one set offers the perfect blend of distance and accuracy,” said Dustin Brekke, Director of Engineering, Research and Development at Cleveland. “A new variable face pattern delivers more distance due to hotter faces with better mass distribution.”
The Launcher UHX Irons incorporate hollow long irons (4-7-irons) for more distance and forgiveness, with lower and deeper weighting compared to traditional cavity back irons. Meanwhile, the 8-iron through pitching wedge features a cavity back construction, which focuses on precision and control rather than maximising distance. The result is a seamless transition throughout to create one unified iron set.
The irons feature a high strength, variable steel face insert, incorporated into each long iron, for higher ball speeds across the entire face and more distance on every shot. The latest iteration of the V-Shaped Sole offers added forgiveness and improved speed retention, while the Tour Zip Grooves and enhanced Laser Milling delivers reliable, consistent spin when attacking the pin.
Key Innovations Inside the Launcher UHX Irons:
Hollow and Cavity Back Construction – Hollow long irons provide more forgiveness, while cavity back short irons provide more control when attacking the pin.
Variable High Strength Steel Face – A variable high strength HT1770M steel face insert delivers explosive ball speeds for increased distance, even on heel and toe impacts.
V-Shaped Sole – Featured in both the cavity back and hollow designs, the V-Shaped Sole improves turf interaction for better speed retention at impact.
Tour Zip Grooves – Tour Zip Grooves and Laser Milling deliver maximum spin for optimal control throughout the Launcher UHX Irons.
Launcher UHX Irons are available in both men’s and women’s offerings along with right and left hand options.
The irons are priced at £499 for a 6/PW steel set and any individual steel irons are priced at £99 and are available in stores from 18th October 2019.
