I understand that the XL Classic will come in two versions only. The 285 will not be adjustable and the 315 will be. Cleveland has apparently gone with two weights getting rid of the 265 Cleveland Black and the 270, 290, 310 Cleveland Classic.

Not sure where you got your info, but the 265 CG Black is not going away. It will stay in the line for a while longer. You were right in that the glued classic will be just one weight, but the classic custom will come in multiple weights based on shaft and set up. It has multiple stock shafts in the 50-60 gram range and 3 differemt weights to change in the head.

The RTX Black Pearl is awesome. played my first round with it today, i prefer it over my SM4 Oil Can. very solid, just the right amount of spin, promotes confidence at address, highly recommended.

2013 is officially the year of the driver. So many choices and options and all of them are amazing!

I'm late to the Cleveland party, but finally hit the Cleveland Classic Tour with the Kusala shaft and WOW! If for some reason, I dont pick up any of the offerings from Cleveland, Nike, Callaway, Cobra, or Taylormade, I will look for the Classic Tour cause I was hitting that thing pretty darn good. And pretty forgiving as well for such a deep faced head!

Anyone have any info on the new Miyazaki shafts? It looks like the Black Tie will be the lowest launching of the stock shaft offerings?

No doubt! From a marketing standpoint I dont think Cleveland is in any position to wait on any of their release dates. They need to beat every company to the stores and get it moving. TaylorMade on the other hand...

gotta say, i dont get why would you go black after the brown persimmon finish. THAT was the niche. why not go blonde. yes i'm too young to have ever played persimmon and yes i know persimmon clubs did come in black, but by going black, cleveland isn't distinguishing themselves from 75% of the market place. also fwiw, i dont think the 290 version nor the 310 version were widespread enough in shops. it was pulling teeth to find a 290 to look at in the NYC area and forget about the 310, no shop around here had it.

Golfsmith on East 54th Street has had a 9.5* Classic 310 sitting there for months.Liked it so much I just bought a 10.5* 310 off ebay for $90. Sending it to Continental Golf to be refinished black then sticking a Kyoshi White in it. Bombs away!!!

Cleveland rep was at our golfTEC last night with the new line. Hit the new Classic XL driver (didn't have the custom) and both 588 RTX/RTX CB wedges. I wasn't impressed at all. The Classic XL was underwhelming. Didn't hear anyone at the event say wow after they hit it. Think it had the Miyazaki B.Asha shaft. Mizuno's new MP-R wedges out performed the 588 RTX's. Hit about 25 shots with each. Wasn't even close.

I think its getting close to release time. As shown here, the reps have them and when I was researching the JDL shafts I ran into a couple places that had them listed for sale. Of course when you click on it there was nothing, but someone made an effort to list the info...

Cannot wait to hit the XL with a white...

the Custom looks adjustable, the 280 looks glued.
