Monster launch from Cleveland

Cleveland Golf has launched the HiBORE Monster XLS driver, and the CG7 and CG7 Tour irons for 2009.

The Monster XLS comes in Standard, Tour and Draw models, and has a clubface that is 16% larger than its XLS predecessor. Cleveland also claims that by lowering the crown, the centre of gravity has also been lowered, to produce the only face-centred sweet spot in golf.

The club has a retail price of £219 and a shipping date of January 29.

Both CG7 irons sets come with 360-degree Gelback Technology, which consists of an injection-moulded, lightweight insert that dampens vibration across the clubface. Retail prices start from £419.
