Nickent's new low-spin hybrid will help you stop the pop-ups.

Nickent continues to push the hybrid category forward with its multi-material 4DX. The 4DX Ironwood, a long-iron replacement, and 4DX Utility, a substitute for high-lofted fairway woods, braze a titanium crown to a steel body. Swapping a steel crown for titanium means 10 grams more discretionary weight is spread around the club's perimeter to create more stability. You'll see the benefit on off-center shots. Tweaking the club's mass properties also produces a more penetrating, low-spin ball flight than the 3DX DC, the allstainless holdover. Which makes 4DX a first-rate option for high-ball hitters and those who trap it. $179, steel, $199, graphite; nickentgolf.com

SOLE
These indentations give 4DX a handsome, high-tech appearance. They minimize turf drag in heavy grass and are housings for weight inserts.

LOFTS
4DX Ironwood: 14°, 15.5°, 17°, 18.5°, 20°, 21.5°, 23°, 24.5°, 26° and 29°. 4DX Utility: 13°, 15°, 17°, 19° and 21°.

REAR
Each tungstenpolymer insert weighs 4 grams. Nickent will switch plugs for you to modify swing weight and flight.

CROWN
The 0.4-mm titanium crown is three times lighter than the stainless steel one it replaced.
