From Golf Magazine (ClubTest, May 2010)

Category: Game-Improvement Hybrids

We tested: 2h (16°), 3h (18°) and 4h (21°) with Fujikura Motore Exotics 80 graphite shaft

Company line: "The ultra-thin maraging steel 'cup face' provides a powerful, lightweight launching pad at impact. The heavy tungsten soleplate creates a deep, low center of gravity that leads to high, long shots. Two internal weight pads improve sound, feel and center-of-gravity location."


PROS: First-class sticks; one of the elite models tested; these excel from the fairway and are dependable from rough and bunkers; a manly man's hybrid for hard swingers; lively, powerful feel and responsive feedback; several testers hit it measurably longer than current hybrids; the 2h (16°) is a superb option off the tee on tight par 4s; covers up misses well; some guys will buy it.

CONS: A few higher-handicappers prefer a more forgiving, lighter-feeling club that doesn't require additional swing speed for peak performance; a small group of testers find that its low, penetrating flight won't always hold greens on long approaches.

$200, graphite;
