Wilson FYbrid HS Hybrid
From Golf Magazine (ClubTest, May 2010)
Category: Game-Improvement Hybrids
We tested: FY (19.5°), 3h (21°), 4h (24°) and 5h (27°) with UST Mamiya ProForce AXIVCore graphite shaft
Company line: "The new Heavy Sole (HS) moves the center of gravity 7 percent lower and 11 percent deeper, resulting in a higher launch and stronger ball flight. The 'dual rail' sole lowers the leading edge for cleaner turf interaction from a variety of lies."
OUR TESTERS SAY:
PROS: Shots jump up quickly and fly on a higher-than normal ball flight due to the heavy sole; consistent forgiveness means more directional help than increased distance; many testers refer to its firm impact sensation; nice option for mid- to high-handicappers; good results from rough; reliable distance gapping between clubs.
CONS: Some testers seek more distance than these deliver, particularly on misses; FYbrid HS does its job but there's nothing truly distinctive here; a handful of guys seek more response from well-hit shots.
