Where this club differs significantly from a driving-iron is the height of the trajectory. The Crossover offers a higher flight, but one that is still lower than a hybrid of the same loft. It offers much higher levels of forgiveness than a long-iron or drivingiron and, as a result, golfers of different abilities could employ one with success. It may also solve the problem for golfers who don’t hit their longirons far or accurately enough, or miss with their hybrid to the left. Distance was certainly impressive. We tested the 21° Crossover and experienced hybridlike yardage on a strong trajectory. The 4-Crossover should still give you the extra distance, while being more userfriendly. The Crossover is versatile too – the tall face makes it playable off the tee while the relatively low spin means it excels in the wind. Consider this Some may prefer less offset, while others just won’t be able to find a place for it in their bag.
VERDICT While better players will gravitate towards it, the fact that it combines the best attributes of a hybrid and longiron means that mid-handicappers should also consider giving it a go.
