2 (16°), 3 (19°), 4 (22°), 5 (25°) with Fujikura Orochi Blue Eye graphite shaft
KEY TECHNOLOGIES: Internal sole weighting pushes more mass low and deep to promote a higher launch and softer-landing approach shots. An “L” shaped maraging steel face extends to the sole. More sole flex helps to boost ball speeds on shots hit low on the face.

Very predictable mid- to high trajectory that's easy to shape; consistent baby draw in higher-lofted clubs; performs equally well from the fairway and the rough and excels as a chipping club.
ACCURACY/FORGIVENESS: One of the most forgiving hybrids — it won't fix your slice but it will put you in position to score time and again, even from the rough.
DISTANCE: Among the longest hitters, especially off the tee — it's a high, penetrating flight that doesn't balloon on you; plays to yardages you would expect, making transition from irons fairly seamless.
FEEL: Crisp, clean, pleasing feel on center contact; feedback is adequate without being overdone; lighter head feel than other hybrids promotes an aggressive swing.
LOOK: Smaller, compact head than most hybrids in its class; sleek black head, blue graphics give it a rock-star quality.

Difficult to hit consistently well for the higher-handicap (15+) testers; weighting is fairly light to average for a hybrid, which may cause an issue for some faster swingers.

BOTTOM LINE: One of the top-rated hybrids. It's a worthy complement to Mizuno's classy stable of irons — exceptional playability, top-notch distance, accuracy/ forgiveness, looks and feel.
