YONEX EZONE ELITE

Golf Asia (Malaysia) - - GOLFING | GEARGUIDE -

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.

WE SAY:

The Elite’s

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.
