Swing it easy
April 20, 2015
Great deal on this driver. Only $64 with a $10 gift card I applied to the purchase. As long as you don't overswing it really jumps off the face.
Good looking club
March 12, 2015
the club looks and feels great, have not had a chance to use it yet because of about two feet of snow. A word of warning do not hold it and take a practice back swing with it; that can cause damage to an overhead light. ;_(

very easy to swing, very light.
Great club - swing slow
February 21, 2015
Pro's - This club is everything that's advertised. It's EXTREMELY lightweight. The feather like feel of the club makes you want to really rip it - DON'T GIVE IN but more on that later. Distance is long. Accuracy and forgiveness are well above what you'd expect at this price level. Mishits will still travel 220 without peeling off into the twilight zone. I've had it for two seasons now and it's been very durable. Con's - it's actually because of one of the pro's. The lightweight feel makes you feel like a swing speed of 120 is appropriate. Distance will be less and accuracy drops dramatically. I swing this driver like a five iron and that's all it needs. The ball leaps of the club face and when you are walking off a 285 yard drive that felt effortless you can thank rock bottom golf!

I ordered this same product last year from Rock Bottom; excellent service of an excellent product. I found this driver to work well with my swing speed of 110 mph. I figured for the price it's a I better get a back up for years to come. Received the driver in 3 days and have hit a few just to check it out; it's exactly what I wanted.
ProsGreat, affordable product which is proven durable

Long, but hard to control
January 9, 2015
Kind of have a problem, buy tons of drivers and then give them away. LOL. This one was nice, it is one of the longest ones but it is so light that it gets hard to control. If you slow it down, it still goes a mile, but it really takes some time to get used to the weight. Gave it to a friend and he picked up 20 yds and hits it straight. He doesn't swing hard and is a senior, so even though it is a stiff shaft, he likes it a lot. It almost seems like with the stiff shaft, he doesn't have that hard slice, just a little drift.
ProsLONG, great deal
ConsHard to control when you want to swing all out.
January 5, 2015
Had my old one for three years and loved it. Not identical to the previous one ( shaft ), but after three for holes I was back in business.
ProsFantastic price! Get to you when promised.
20 yds longer

light weight translates to added swing speed, at 57 yrs old hit my first ever 300 yd drive.

ProsDistance, looks, sound
great driver if you like a lighter feel
May 16, 2014
I ordered several of this driver for corporate prizes at a golf tourney. I made sure to try them out first and I did hit this driver well. I ordered in a 9* stiff and 10.5* reg. I hit the stiff shaft just fine but tend to prefer a heavier club and this was far too light for my liking. If you're a senior or a player with less mass than I carry around this club plays LONG...you just have to like the lightweight feel.
Prosvery lightweight. plays LONG
Constoo light for my liking
Great for price

For the price great.mi wanted to try a lower loft, didn't lose any distance from my Taylor made.

No Gimmicks. Just Light, Long and Straight
April 21, 2014
I am a senior with a slow swing speed, although I am a fairly accurate and consistent ball striker. I hit my driver 175 in the air with a perfect hit, so I needed a driver to boost distance and keep me up with the big boys. Without doubt this is the longest driver I have ever tried, and I've tried a bunch of them. I find it a little harder to control than my old Ping G5, but it's a good 15 yards longer. I have the 10.5 degree. It is not particularly high, but high enough, and it rolls out nicely. I might have been better off with the 12 degree, but my Ping driver is a 12 and I carry them both in my bag. I hit the Ping when I absolutely must hit the fairway, and I bust this out when accuracy doesn't matter as much.
ProsLong and easy-to-hit, I have used mine for over 100 rounds and it continues to perform (did replace the grip). Did I say it's long?
ConsThe longer shaft takes a little getting used to.
Finally found a driver for me
April 11, 2014
After trying many drivers (taylormade, ping, nike) I finally found a driver that fits my swing. Added 15-20 yards on my drives and I am hitting the ball a lot straighter. Definitely cannot beat this club for the price.
Proslength, feel, accuracy
Good for me
April 5, 2014
I tend to hit the ball too low, and this 12° driver seems to help with getting a higher launch. An unbeatable deal for a top-of-the-line club, too.

cleveland xl270 driver 12 degree 47 inch shaft
April 4, 2014
it is without a doubt the best driver I have ever used. I am 64 5 ft 11 , 230 pounds with 10 handicap. The ball travels long high and straight. Average drive 260 yards, This is 10 yards longer than my square drivers. I hit a low ball usually off the tee and this fixes that issue. The 47 inch shaft is great it took me about 15 balls at the range to get used to the new length (old driver 45 1/2). You should use a higher tee with this driver IMO. My shaft is a senior one.
Prostoo many to mention, easy to hit, light , you can swing the club real easy

March 28, 2014
I love this cleveland driver but the shaft 39 grams of weight is just too light for my kind of swing.
Prosif you want a fast swing, and light shaft.
ConsUnable to control the swing, it is unpredictable for me for my kind of body mechanic swing, too lightning speed for me.

I purchesed this club to help with my release I bought the 12* reg flex and the first two balls I hit burnt up on re-entry so I purchesed the 9* stiff flex the release was just what I was looking for I can now snap the club head through the ball with no effort at all being a 100% disabled veteran that was important for me gained distance over my R-11 TMu

January 14, 2014
Because of the light weight takes a little getting used to since it comes through so fast. However a very good driver that is well made and does give a little more distance.
Great club at an even greater price.

Straight, long and forgiving!
December 23, 2013
Just received it today and straight to the range. - Hitting it longer and straighter than ever. I think I prefer this to my R1. Even mishits seem to find the centre of the fairway. Best driver by far.
ProsLong, straight, light, but you can still feel your club head position.
December 20, 2013
This thing booms! Highest swing speed I have gotten is with this. More swing speed more distance. I really like the sound these Cleveland drivers give off. It's cheep and one for the bag.

I've only played one round with this driver, but I hit some sweet drives. I did shorten the shaft one inch and regrip with a half oversize, tour velvet grip but I do that to all of my new drivers. I have 38 inch sleeve length arms.
ProsNice deep face, you don't have to force it to hit it far

Cleveland XL270, 9.5 degree stiff
October 5, 2013
I absolutely love this driver. I replaced a older Nike Sasquatch with a Grafalloy Blue prolaunch shaft and the first thing that jumped out at me was how substantially lighter the Cleveland is. Honestly I felt my swing speed instantly increase one my first practice swing. This shaft is really cutting edge for that matter. I averaged about 275 to 280 with my old driver, but first shot out with the Cleveland I busted one over 300 yards easily. I was really amazed how easy this club is to hit long. The most important thing this club brought to my game because of this lack of weight really is the fact I can swing easier and get the same, if not more distance. And if I really want to power one out there with a wide fairway, par 5's beware! Great club, I would recommend to really anyone looking for more yards with less effort.
ProsLook at address Weight Shaft length PRICE
ConsThe grip is a nice polymer, but it wears out quickly. Definitely have to replace it after moderate use.

First Time is a Charm
August 29, 2013
I bought this club without demoing it because I currently hit a Cleveland driver. I took it to the First tee after I hit exactly three drives with it on the range. I then proceeded to hit it a total of eleven times with only one errant shot. Three of the drives were easily the longest I've hit all year. What a bargain.

I love this club. I got mine in sr flex and it's giving me more distance along with predictable straight to slight draw flight path.
Exceptional Driver, added 40 YARDS!
August 14, 2013
I took a chance on just buying this club without hitting one demo first. I love Cleveland so figured I couldn't go wrong. I had a Cleveland 460 Comp from years ago but with a 9 degree loft. Upon the recommendation of a pro, I wanted to get more launch angle so I went to a 12 degree driver. I had the club head speed and ball speed but my launch angle was too low to optimize the lift on the golf ball. This 12 degree driver did the trick! Not only does the ball explode off the face but stays in the air much longer. I kid you not, I gained 40 yards from this one simple adjustment! The lightweight design makes swinging effortless and therefore much more repeatable. Cleveland is a hidden gem of a company.
ProsLightweight design promotes easily repeatable swing Stiff shaft is perfect
Consnot a single one.
Keeping this in the bag
August 13, 2013
Got the driver a few weeks ago and couldn't get used to the added length. I cut 1" off and added a midsize grip that I prefer and started striping it. This one is going to be in the bag for a while. As a senior with a slow swing speed, the combination works great for me.
ProsPrice Look Feel
Better driver than expected
July 28, 2013
Wasn't expecting a lot for the price, but was an upside surprise. Ordered stiff shaft, which was not as stiff as expected. Ball trajectory was higher than anticipated for the loft.

Senior shaft driver purchased for cold weather golf
July 28, 2013
I have tried a few practice shots and the club seems to be very lively. The added length (almost 47 inches) will take time to get used to. My present diver, with a regular shaft is more than 2 inches shorter. My theory is to use a driver with less loft and lower flight in warm dry weather to get maximum roll and more loft in cold wet weather, when roll out is not a factor.
ProsLight weight, lively senior shaft and increased loft (12 degrees).
ConsExtra long shaft (almost 47")

Had my doubts about using such a light driver with a light shaft, but after the first time at the range I'm sold. Hit consistently and long. Went back to my old driver and was surprised how heavy it felt. Took little time to adjust to the superlight feel, I like the way the shaft behaves and I just don't miss with this clubface.

I had been looking to upgrade/relplace my driver for a little while and went with this, I'll say I'm quite pleased with my choice. The value is hard to beat, and the playability is fun.. I have a lot more control than I ever did. Makes golfing more enjoyable & as I mentioned FUN!
ProsLength Draw Feature Sound Playabilty Value
Tee It High
July 5, 2013
Love the deep face and superlight weight. I like to tee the ball about 3 1/2 inches in the air and way forward in my stance. This club is perfect for my ball position, can unload with no fear. I'm 70,. a six handicap and with this driver I still hit it close to my distance at 25. 270 yards is automatic. Longest was a couple yards shy of 300.Great shaft.

February 25, 2013
7 hdcp. I have the DST Launcher 10.5 degree with the Diamana shaft. I like Cleveland drivers and have been back and forth between TM and Cleveland for the past decade. Decided to try the lighter club with a 12 degree loft. Not getting any younger and the price was a big factor in the decision. I struggled slightly with it a first, and missed the more solid feel of the DST with the 10.5 loft. My 50 years of golf experience told me to stop bunting my normal 210 yard drives and take a rip at it. It was a good decision. With a little more effort at swing speed that Miyazaki shaft did it's job as did the thin spring board club face. If one doesn't compress the face and utilize that technology it's all for naught. I was getting 15 to 20 yards more with this club with the more aggressive swing but was still able to control it.
ProsGood aesthetics, and shaft.
ConsWould like a little better solid hit feedback. Hoping to get it with more use.

Replaced a Razr Hawk
April 24, 2012
For the price this driver is fantastic. I had a friend snap my razr hawk and with the money he gave me which was about 200 bucks i needed to replace my driver. I hit the new cobra amp, RocketBallZ, and a razr hawk on the simulator and the launcher was my furthest distance club with the amp a close 2nd but a bit more inconsistent. Overall its a nice driver that benefits from a smooth swing. I am not as in love with the loft i get on this compared to my razr hawk though. It hits much higher and makes it a bit more inconsistent with the winds around here even if i am gaining a few yards. Also, the head cover is absolutely hideous but thats easily replaceable.
Glad I took the plunge
March 7, 2012
You should know I'm in my 60's and (truthful) average drive was around 180 yd. Was sick of always hitting long irons on second shot or not reaching par 5's in regulation. Swing speed is 80 mph on a good day so went with this driver because of extra length and lightest shaft/grip out there. Took some getting use to as would be expected. Started out slicing, which I never did before. Found I had to tee it up higher and play more forward in my stance than my old Ping G5. Am hitting them straight once again and almost 20 yards longer so for me it worked out great.
ProsLightnest. Accuracy. Cost
ConsHeadcover is tight for these arthritic hands.
