Golf News

NCG's test team review all the latest kit independently. Find out what they thought of the Cleveland Classic 290 driver...


“I like the tall, retro head – it looks fantastic – but I just couldn’t get on with the shaft. It felt very inconsistent.” JaW
“The feel is lovely, but I got a very loopy flight from the shaft. You’d imagine that, with a proper shaft in it, this would be fantastic.” DM
“The lightweight shaft makes it hard to know where the head is. Better players needing more yards will love this.” JoW
