The new Launcher XL irons blend two types of clubs in one set to deliver easy-hitting long irons and precision-driven scoring clubs.

All clubs are 15 percent larger from heel to toe than the previous generation of Launcher irons, and they have a wide V-shaped sole that is designed to work effectively in and out of turf to help golfers achieve better performance on big hits. . Each of the irons also received the Cleveland MainFrame face, a hitting surface created after computers simulated thousands of strokes with different face designs to create the fastest, most forgiving hitting area possible.

However, iron heads 4-7 are hollow, to allow that face to flex more efficiently and create even more ball speed. The 8 iron through wedge has a rear cavity design which should offer more control and feel. Short irons also have narrower and deeper grooves than those found in long irons. According to Cleveland, they should help produce more spin, which can create a higher launch angle, steeper descent angle, and more spin.

At the top of the grip, below the grip, Cleveland added an 8 gram weight. The weight helps counterbalance the weight of the head, so with the same effort golfers should be able to create more clubhead speed. The company calls it Action Mass CB.
