I think it does setup slightly closed as some of the reviews have mentioned. I know this is not the newest of Cleveland’s offerings; however, if you are in the market I recommend at least trying this driver on for size. I am able to turn it over but I feel like I have to work my hands too hard.

Played my first round today with it and I absolutely crushed it down the middle! I felt like my average distance was hurt by not being able to freely release the club for fear of the hook.

Cleveland HiBORE XLS Tour Driver with Gold

Well I am not a big hitter but when I took her out to the course I could not believe it straight down the middle and 30 yards further on average. I like the club, and love the look of the head, but was having some control issues. Trying to hit a draw resulted in a duck hook often enough to make it a very uncomfortable undertaking on the course.

Flat black and sloped crown. Posted clegeland June – Sits really well behind the ball and looks great at address. I know this is not the newest of Cleveland’s offerings; however, if you are in the market I recommend at least trying this driver on for size.


The trend continued throughout the round and, needless to say, I fell in love. Posted 29 September – Strongly recommend this club as a game improvement choice.

Seems to sit very closed unless you open it up to sit on the back sole of the head. After 5 or 6 drives, my ears were ringing. The noise at impact is like a big bang and the ball feels that it has just been shot from a cannon.

Cleveland HiBore XLS Driver Review – Golfalot

The HiBORE is not a bad looking driver, provided you can get over the scooped-out look of the head, presumably inspired by the old Halo hybrid. The driver search continues. Only my Odyssey putter is not Cleveland.

Actually this is my only criticism so far – it’s a little harder to ‘feel’ your mishits than last year’s model. I love the XL. The hardest club for me to hit has always been my driver. I purchased it at the beginning of the year as I had heard nothing but how long it was and since I was still using the original Cleveland LauncherI needed an upgrade. I out drove them all.

Been using mine 6 years now and I’ve never felt the need to change. The club provides optimal forgiveness for a hacker like myself, but gives great distance. In particular, I was ballooning shots frequently, so I knew I had to be sacrificing some distance as a result.


Oh and as for mishits, you hihore achieve up to metres.

Club provides optimal distance especially on mishits. The club feels beautifully balanced and you can definitely work it each way, but to be honest I’m really surprised how forgiving it is.

I dont know if its the shaft but this is easily the best driver I have ever had in my bag. I usually hit a small draw but now I am hitting the ball longer and straighter. The underside of the clubhead is stylish without being garish, the red and silver compliment each other well.

Cleveland’s ‘Full Face Performance’ FFP technology extends the ‘Hot Zone’ across a larger portion of the face creating more distance from both solid shots and mis-hits alike. Anyone know how to silence this thing?

What this translates to is straighter shots, regardless of how hard I swing!
