These adjustable hybrids allow you to tweak the lie angle (1.5° flat, standard, 1.5° upright) but not face angle. Designer Jesse Ortiz believes that the lie angle adjustment enables you to dial in distances more accurately—similar to an iron—so there’s little variance between shots. Why no face angle adjustment? According to Ortiz, hybrids are “trouble” clubs as well as long-iron replacements, and a square face is key to getting out of bad lies. The three-piece head—stainless steel body, 5-gram maraging steel crown, Carpenter 465 steel face—has additional weight low and rearward in the sole to bolster forgiveness and improve launch. Lofts: 18°, 21°, 25° and 30°.
