Cleveland Classic

Cleveland Classic

With its retro-looking mahogany crown, brass sole and faux face insert design, the Cleveland Classic looks more likened to something Bobby Jones would have teed up with.

But the Classic is a thoroughly 21st century driver. Fuelled with MaxCor2 Technology, the ball flies off the face and the Classic’s massive head - the company’s biggest ever - presents a tremendous amount of forgiveness.

Although that was all part of the plan by Cleveland Golf's metal woods development manager Nate Radcliffe: “There is a lot of variable face thickness in the Classic and the thin areas around the outside of the face help to maintain ball speed when you hit the ball off the centre.”

The persimmon-like look instilled ultimate confidence at address and the subtle Classic graphic on the crown is a particularly useful aid.

The Classic 270 is available in 9, 10.5 and 12-degree (Miyazaki C. Kua 39); the Classic 290 in 7.5, 9, 10.5 and 12-degree (Miyazaki C. Kua 43); and the Tour version in 8.5, 9.5 and 10.5-degree (Miyazaki Kusala black).

Best for: Low to middle handicap players who want long, low spinning, forgiving drives
Expect to pay:
Around £200
