Summary:
Was looking for that miracle driver that would cure all my mistakes off the tee. Unfortunately, that driver does not yet exist. But, the Classic 290 is a great driver that is working very well for me. When the Classic was new, I was intrigued by the look - a bit retro. I purchased the head only and then fitted it with a Grafalloy ProLaunch Red shaft and it has been a fantastic driver. The ball flight is medium. Feel and sound at contact are great - somewhat soft and muted yet powerful at the same time. No adjustments have been needed to dial it in, just make a good swing and the results are more than what is deserved.

2012 Cleveland Classic 270 Driver

Summary:
Since I'm getting older (65) I decided I'd like to try to regain some of the distance I've lost in the last five to seven years. I used to hit my drives consistently 230-240 Yds. Now it's down to 215-220. The speed through the impact zone changes,...no matter how hard you try to correct it! Oh Well!, gotta accept what you're dealt, right? The good news (for me, anyway) is that when I tried out the Cleveland Classic 270 Driver I was amazed at that I could achieve 220 yds.+ without trying to overswing the club! The lighter weight is definitely a plus! especially compared with my 2003 "Launcher 400". The clubhead maintains it's feel throughout the swing, so it "adapts itself" to your tempo. The best thing was a tight shot dispersion from the monitor's centerline. If I didnt hit it dead-center, there was still alot of forgiveness to it without losing appreciable yards. I recommend this club to anyone who swings with a moderate, to easy, swing-tempo. A younger person with a fast swing would probably try to overswing it due to it's light total weight. All-in-all, it's a great feeling, and great-looking club, that I thoroughly enjoy! Cleveland said it right, "It's how the game should feel" !

classic 290 7.5*

Summary:
I had tried a friends launcher with the same shaft ( Miyazaki 43s) and liked the way it felt, so when I saw this driver on ebay I took the plunge. I must say I am enjoying it. Did I hit it past the green on the longest par fives?, did I gain fifty yards out of the box ?, NO! What I did do was hit it about as far as my titleist 905s and found the fairway a little more often, as I was able to ease up a little and still hit it well ( unlike the titleist ). I also liked the fact that my elbows didn't hurt after my round, I guess lighter really is better.Needless to say I bought the three and five to go with it. If you are getting older like me with all the accompanying aches and pains from years of golfing abuse this may be the club for you
