VERDICT This hybrid is more like a compact fairway wood. The large face uses Callaway’s trademark design that wraps around the crown and sole. The wider heel-to-toe dimensions create more forgiveness on off-centre hits and face flexibility approaching the R&A limit. It adds an eight-way adjustable hosel across five lofts. COMMENTS (L) Easy to aim and forgiving. Mis-hits acted like they were flushed. (M) Above-average distance and higher than normal trajectory. Forgiving through the turf. (H) Swing smoothly, look up and ball is at perfect trajectory.
