VERDICT Hybrids need to do two things well that a lot of golfers find difficult with their long irons – get the ball in the air and out of the rough. For the King F7, the key to solving these problems is a low centre of gravity. A 13-gram tungsten weight in the sole helps provide a higher ball flight, and the rails lower the CG and keep the club gliding through the turf.
COMMENTS (L) They have adjustability figured out. I was able to launch the ball high really easily. (M) It had just the right amount of ting at impact. This will hold greens without sacrificing distance. (H) The rails helped the turf interaction. The ball flight settled in the air and landed softly.
