Stay under control
Four weapons that hit it high and bring it down softly
What we did
Six testers handicaps: 15, 17, 17, 18, 18, 20 hit dozens of balls with the test models. Hooked up to a launch monitor, the testers hit clubs in varying order. Well-struck shots were recorded, and we averaged the testers' totals. Here's how the clubs fared.

to the highest overall ball flight. The Nickent 3DX Hybrid flies on the
• Distance: Testers achieve the highest ball speed, and carry the ball
the farthest, with the Cleveland HiBore. The difference between the
longest and shortest model is seven yards.
