From Golf Magazine (ClubTest, May 2010)
Category: Game-Improvement Hybrids
We tested: 3H (21°), 4H (24°) and 5H (27°) with Callaway Golf FT-iZ Hybrid graphite shaft
Company line: "We incorporate advanced 'Fusion' technology (stainless steel body and sole with metal injection-molded, high-density weights) to maximize perimeter weighting for our most forgiving hybrid design ever."
OUR TESTERS SAY:
PROS: The typical shot is a high, straight, repeatable flight with soft landing; stable head won't twist or move — you don't have to make a perfect swing to hit good shots; FT-iZ cuts right through long grass for clean contact with little distance loss; testers concur that these are reliable performers; consistent distance and direction; slight misses perform nearly as well as center strikes, most shots hold the target line; a few panelists would consider buying the FT-iZ hybrid and dropping their 4-iron.
CONS: Overall look (larger head plus noticeable offset) takes getting used to; several testers experience adequate distance but aren't blown away by it.
