Category: Better-Player Hybrids
We tested: 20° with Aldila NVS graphite shaft
Key Technologies: A 50-gram backweight (under the grip) contributes to more of an on-plane takeaway and smoother transition from backswing to downswing. The club's stainless steel body with carpenter steel face increases MOI and forgiveness.
OUR TESTERS SAY: This attractive design with a larger-than-average head size is competent in most areas.
PLAYABILITY: Consistent, mid-high trajectory; reasonably workable in both directions, although some testers feel there's a slight draw bias.
ACCURACY/FORGIVENESS: Good correction on toe hits; some testers find the large clubhead provides more wood-like forgiveness; off-center hits typically stay in play.
DISTANCE: Pretty consistent carry from swing to swing.
FEEL: Solid stability through the ball; most find the unusual weighting isn't actually heavy; some testers consider impact sensation to be powerful.
LOOK: Appealing black paint job; sits square behind ball, which helps aim; large head looks easy to hit.
Middle-of-the-road yardage; not a standout in any one area; faster swingers struggle with control.
