What we say...

2013 Hybrids Test

All testers experienced a much higher ball flight with plenty of spin and as a result it wasn’t one of the longer hybrids. But dispersion was tight with off-centre hits holding their line surprisingly well. James found the offset on the standard version took a bit of getting used to. He preferred the compact Pro version, which gave him the ability to shape the ball both ways, strike the ball well from rough and increase distance, too.

Matt liked the matt grey finish and the consistent flight. He enjoyed the higher flight and solid feel at impact and got the ball out of the rough with relative ease. He also praised the sound. Antony liked the colour and felt the bigger head and visible grooves made it easy to line up. He said the high flight would mean a struggle into the wind but also liked the sound at impact.

The X-Hot family is completed by two new hybrids, which feature a thin-faced design for distance and a reconfigured sole plate with more relief in the heel and the toe, designed to increase forgiveness on a variety of lies.
