A really bad swing still gives a really bad result — only longer than the bad shots with the old model. Yes, I want to get away from the draw hook and hit it straighter. Yes indeed, the red shaft will lower backspin compared to the gold, as long as the designation is the same. I am out hitting my TailorMade by a mile but more importantly I am able to hit longer AND ease off a little on the swing, which means more fairways hit. I reckon that gets it inline. What got me most was that every time I really connected, it felt like a shotgun blast!!!

Hi, I purchased the XL Tour model this year in mid-season and it has been fantastic. This was a great review!

Mine is actually 2. For a swing speed of the stock red stiff feels very good, surprised because my SS is at the low end for the stiff.

Went on line for a good review and got a great one thanks. Very high ball flight.

He said ideally the rate of backspin should be around rpm. All my drivers are cool, but I wonder how many of us will onn looking for a new driver? I would be very careful of any Cleveland drivers on ebay.

In the image just above, note the longer body on the standard version, meant to increase stability on off-center hits like the FT-i, the SUMO 2or the D1. On average, I hit around five fairways and ten greens per round. Yesterday asked it to a friend, and went onto the course for test, only for two holes for cleevland reasons.


The Tour model has a shallower body to allow for more workability. At the driving range, I tested the Hibore XL with the gold shaft, both stiff clevland reg. I was going to hunt down that phone number and give someone there a call. I hit the 9.

Not sure if I would benefit confoeming the red shaft or not — any ideas? Really bummed cause I was killing this club. Your email address will not be published.

Before I got my Hibore XL, I was using an old, small headed Cleveland metal driver, and before cconforming, I always used a small headed graphite 3 wood, so teeing it up high was never really an issue before. Posted 28 December – You can pick them up at a Target.

I have noticed a lot more consistency in shot type. So now there are two. I picked up an unusual looking Hibore XL 9. This club might up your shot trajectory a little bit and keep with the same loft.

That way you get more airtime but without substantially increasing backspin, which will shorten distance. The gold shaft has an active tip and I swing the driver averaging mph and I just launched the ball too high for my liking.


With this driver I feel confident of a dead straight tee ball, and usually get it, or else a tiny little fade that I like just as much. In five minutes after discovering the problem, I almost eliminated my dreaded hook. My first inclination was to tell you to go with the standard model, but your best bet would probably be to hit both of them on a launch monitor. I guess you can call me a Cleveland homer! I then went to the golf club, I teed the ball higher than normal, I swung the club as I normally did when I looked up the ball was soaring away into the distance straight down the middle of the fairway.

Hey Gene, My first inclination was to tell you to go with the standard model, but your best bet would probably be to hit both of them on bibore launch monitor. Hi, I Was wondering if anybody knows if this club is good for someone with a Handicap of 10 or less? I have yet to play with someone who does!.
