The Cleveland Golf HiBore XL Tour driver looks funny to some, lovely to others.
Likewise, this golf club\'s performance seems to rack up impressive stats while
leaving some testers less than overwhelmed.

SANTA CLARITA, Calif. (Apil 30, 2007) - Cleveland Golf started out in 1979 producing
replicas of classic golf clubs, but made its name with wedges - excellent, PGA
Tour-preferred wedges. Since the turn of the century, Cleveland has expanded its
offering to include some of the most innovative designs in golf, including the
groundbreaking HiBore line of drivers and fairway woods.

These clubs are immediately identifiable by the \"scooped out\" crowns of their club
heads. The theory behind the swooping, flowing design is one of weight
redistribution from the crown to the sole, resulting in a lower center of gravity
and a higher ball-flight with less backspin but more carry.

The newest incarnation of the HiBore, the HiBore XL, is engineered to alleviate one
of the reported weaknesses of the original model: club head stability. The HiBore XL
features a larger, wider, deeper sole plate, shifting weight farther back and
distributing the mass of the club head a bit, for more torque-resistant MOI.

The result is a solidly performing driver that can run with all the other big dogs
on the market.

How does the Cleveland HiBore XL play?
We tested the HiBore XL Tour model ($349), which has somewhat different specs from
the standard HiBore XL ($299). The Tour model features a 440cc club head (rather
than the 460cc size of the standard model), a 3-degree open face, a 1-degree flatter
lie angle and neutral internal weighting, whereas the standard model offers slicers
a slightly closed face and a draw bias
