From Golf Magazine (Buyer's Guide, May 2009)
It's for: Mid- or high-handicappers
David Llewellyn, club R&D manager: "The MX-700 hybrid, like the MX-700 fairway wood, has an extremely hot face. We couple this with the 'drop down' crown to create greater ball speed and a higher launch than conventional hybrids."
How It Works: This baby is built to help you hit it high. The sloped crown (hidden from view) contributes to the low, rear CG (for smooth liftoff). The crown design also gives fitters the ability to make loft and lie adjustments. The strong, thin, lightweight steel face produces a broad area of maximum ball speed. One result is minimal distance loss on off-center hits. The crown decal [also hidden from view]can assist with proper aim. The club comes in 17°, 20°, 23° and 26° lofts.
