VERDICT Those turbulators on the crown do frame the ball nicely, but it’s the unseen internal geometry that does the real work here. Inside the sole, weight pads cascade from back to front. This helps position weight further back for more forgiveness and gets the sole more involved in the way the face gives at impact. That means more flexing for more distance. COMMENTS (L) Hybrids are supposed to be your bailout club, and I feel like this one would bail me out every time. (M) Excellent launch. Light feel led to a sense of a lot of clubhead speed. (H) Those shark fins just scream like you’re gonna crush it. Easy to get the ball in the air and hit it the way you want it.
