We tested: 2h (18Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â°), 3h (21Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â°), 4h (24Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â°),
5h (27Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â°) in Callaway X graphite shaft
Company line: "A modified X-sole
design provides improved turf
interaction. The club has increased
perimeter weighting with optimized
center of gravity location. Designed to
launch the ball higher, with more spin,
than Callaway's Heavenwood."
Our Test Panel says: Does everything
you'd expect of a hybrid and looks good
doing it; club glides along the turf, not
through it; good pop in the clubface;
provides adequate feedback without
harshness to hands; more straight than
supremely workable; light, stable head
allows more head speed with little effort.
