YONEX EZONE ELITE
www.yonex.com/sports/golf Availability: 5-SW
Stock shaft: FST 115 (s) Yonex M60 (g)
7i loft/length: 29° / 37.25”
TECH: A double undercut cavity means the sole is extremely thin behind the face to maximise flex at impact. Weight is removed from high in the blade by Yonex’s Octaforce tech and relocated to create a progressive weighting system.
29° 7-iron is stronger than some 6-irons, which goes a long way to explaining its joint-longest average carry (172m) for our pro. There’s no hiding from the head size though – it’s pretty large – and because it has less offset than most, we reckon it might appeal to golfers who really don’t enjoy seeing the leading edge of an iron a long way behind the hosel at address. Thanks to its size the Elite is really forgiving.
VERDICT: Even if the Elite is a bit plain, it’s well worth a look, particularly if you consider the price. There might not be lots of visible tech, but across the board it’s solid and will do a good job for a club golfer.
