From Golf Magazine (May 2011)
Category: Better-Player Hybrids
We tested: 2 (18°) and 3 (21°) with Nike Project X HY graphite shaft

Key Technologies: Variable face thickness and a "full compression channel" (which helps transmit more energy to the ball at impact) create a hotter clubface and increased distance. The club's variable sole camber reduces turf interference from all types of lies.

OUR TESTERS SAY: Good performers that provide a healthy dose of versatility and attractive looks.

PLAYABILITY: Slightly smaller head and railed sole are a good combo out of rough and tricky lies; capable of shaping shots and altering trajectory; a few testers find it tends to produce a lower flight than others.
ACCURACY/FORGIVENESS: Solid strikes yield precise shots, off-center hits are covered up reasonably well.
DISTANCE: Respectable yardage in line with testers' own sticks; a few faster swingers get more distance.
FEEL: Quite stable through the swing; enough feedback to distinguish between a center hit and a miss.
LOOK: Compact, clean shape is a hit; smaller head fits testers' eyes well.

Lower-than-optimal trajectory for some testers; not the most satisfying feel on solid hits; several guys want more length.
