I would say go with the 9. Gap wedge, putt and birdie. The numbers add up. I was always able to crunch the occasional yarder but only once in a while. A lower launching shaft that brought down my spin and launch. 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 have been playing this driver for two years and have to say I have never hit any other club as straight and far, while still retaining workability.

Cleveland HiBore XL Tour 9.5 Degree Driver Stiff Flex Graphite 279979 Golf

Those were the 2 clubs I compared against each other. This is somewhat better with the XL Tour.

Went down to the range to try it out but ended up slicing most of the shots and was quite disappointed. I hit a slight fade and am wondering if the XL is the way to go or spend he extra and buy the newer XLS Please provide dates you need sets delivered to you.

Went back to the Titleist and drives were back to normal length, maybe — carry with hiboe — 15 yards roll.

The XL is very good. Please have your Order Number ready and reference the tracking number on clefeland shipment to ensure it has been delivered to our facility. This is my first year really golfing just learning the game. I reckon that gets it inline.


The first thing I noticed when swinging the XL Pro was the weight D-5 which is about 8 swingweights heavier my other driver. Not sure if I would benefit with the red shaft or not — any ideas?

Cleveland HiBore XL Tour Driver

hbore I know because I had one. I hit it a few times and they were so long and straight compoared to my normal drives I thought it must be a fluke. Light scratches or mild nicks possible. The ball jumped off the face. Now, given that the XL Pro is an inch longer and 8 swingweights heavier, my results are not surprising.

Very high ball flight.

The good shots that I hit were the earliest ones before the round and during the round. Since that time, I have been getting very untrusting and erratic outcomes off the tee within the last few months after getting it back from TM.

Cleveland HiBORE XL and XL Tour Driver Review (Clubs, Review) – The Sand Trap

Despite the super-shiny finish on the sole, and contrary to popular belief, the sole is not easily scratched. This HiBore is deadly, Tokr missed only one fairway and still managed to parr the hole. Stock shafts seem to play pretty weak. The issue, apparently, was a COR thing. Best driver I ever had once you xleveland used to it. Edited by electroleum, 21 August – From my experience with the XL, I would say the red in stiff flex would be the way to go.


I bought cleve,and whole iron set, 3 to PW, plus D wedge, 3 wood and driver, as well as CG11 sand and lob wedge. I used to drive the ball with the 2 wood. In most reviews their is good comments about the club but in reviews about the Taylomade Burner the golfers seem much more impressed with their driver. On the launch monitor, both Hibore XL and Burner gave me plenty of distance, with the burner a little more by yards, but I prefered the look and feel of the Hibore XL more, which ultimately adds to hiboer confidence with the driver when I line up on the first tee.

The number of people that hit and use X shafts according to golfers who post on websites, amazes me. Cleveland has gone the extra step and has brought on Fujikura shafts as the standard for their clubs. I was always able to crunch the occasional yarder but only once in a while. The price may be the seller’s own price elsewhere or another seller’s price. Wow is all I have to say.
