Wilson Staff DXi Hybrid
From Golf Magazine (May 2011)
Category: Game-Improvement Hybrids
We tested: 3 (19°), 4 (22°), 5 (25°) with Aldila Voodoo graphite shaft
Key Technologies: Lots of weight concentrated in the sole helps to lower the center of gravity and, thus, produce higher-launching shots. The face insert features different thicknesses in "three zones" so shots come off "hot" whether they're struck in the center, heel or toe.
OUR TESTERS SAY: Solid, workmanlike hybrids that are easy to swing, hit it high and offer ample forgiveness.
PLAYABILITY: These are worth a try if you need help hitting the ball high; the 25° is a nimble performer.
ACCURACY/FORGIVENESS: Covers up mis-hits well; easy to swing, less effort means more consistency.
DISTANCE: Honest distances - sufficiently long on flush shots and those missed on the toe or heel.
FEEL: Effortless to swing; most find that there's enough responsiveness to distinguish center shots from off-center hits.
LOOK: Simple clubhead design but with a spice of style in the burgundy and black shaft.
Digging the 3 (19°) out of the deep stuff can pose a problem; a few testers believe it's difficult to determine good shots from bad ones based on feel alone.

As with the fairway metals, the DXi hybrids were designed with input from Harrington and have the same large-radius, heavy-mass sole.
