Playability

Surprisingly workable in both directions—adequate versatility from tough spots, fairway lies, and even off the tee; can extricate the ball from all but the absolute worst situations.

Distance

Predictable and right around average—the Hot Launch 2 Iron-Wood is right on point with what testers expect to get on solid strikes.

Cons

This one doesn't produce the same yardages as many competitive models; some players want more help when it comes to off-center hits; overall feedback can be too muted.

Bottom Line

Sold separately or as a complete set of irons, the Hot Launch 2 Iron-Wood is a useful option for getting yourself out of trouble spots, and at a fraction of the cost for other hybrids in this category.
