From Golf Magazine (May 2011)
Category: Game-Improvement Hybrids
We tested: M2 (18°), M3 (20.5°), M4 (23°) with Miyazaki C. Kua 59 graphite shaft
Key Technologies: The "GlideRail" sole design reduces turf interaction to improve contact from various lies. Mashie weighs 30 grams less than its predecessors, and has a longer shaft (by a quarter inch) in an effort to boost distance.

OUR TESTERS SAY: Solid, reliable sticks are easy to hit and pack plenty of forgiveness in a compact head.

PROS
PLAYABILITY: Perfect for low-ball hitters needing extra lift; gets ball in air easily; fine from the fairway but really shines from rough; nice high draw brings ball into greens with minimal roll.
ACCURACY/FORGIVENESS: Very forgiving - shots don't waver far offline even on less-than-ideal swings.
DISTANCE: Most testers experience typical hybrid distances.
FEEL: Light clubs have a pleasing overall balance during the swing.
LOOK: Basic look, no bright lights; compact heads give the effect of a lot of punch in a small package.

CONS
Visual attempt to look retro or old doesn't resonate with a lot of testers; some testers can't tell the difference feel-wise between softness of good and bad shots.

From Sports Illustrated Golf+ (February 7, 2011)
With a Gliderail Sole (to reduce turf drag), Retro-Raw finish (a rugged, bulletproof look) and Ultralite technology, the Mashie provides versatility and function. The club is 30 grams lighter than most traditional utilities, which promotes faster head speed.
