Cleveland Classic XL & XL Custom Driver Preview

To say that 2012 was a banner year for Cleveland Golf might just be the largest understatement ever. It was a year that bolstered their position with fans of their equipment, and at the same time, put them on the map for many who had always written them off. At the forefront of it all was the Cleveland Classic.

The Classic brought with it looks that were unheard of in a modern driver – a true throwback look that was a nod to yesteryear. The 2012 Classic brought the look of the old persimmon driver heads mixed with the R&D of today, including the deepest face ever seen on a driver.

Now the release of the 2013 Cleveland Golf line is upon us. Replacing the flash of the 2012’s classic paint scheme of maroon and brass is the sleek and clean look of black. Even more than that, this year Cleveland Golf is bringing double the pleasure with two different Classic drivers being released – the Classic XL and the Classic XL Custom.
