What we say...
There are very few rescue/utility/baffler/whatever-you-want-to-call-them clubs that would grace the bags of good golfers, but the Mizuno Fli-Hi was originally designed after requests by players on the US PGA Tour.
They wanted a club that flew the ball high but landed softly – something they found difficult to achieve with either an iron or fairway wood. Enter Fli-Hi, which has been re-engineered for 2004.
The new version offers better control and because the face is made from a stronger breed of steel, the delivery of distance and carry is more consistent.
The leading edge of the club is also different. It’s slightly blunter than the old Fli-Hi and this prevents the clubhead digging into the turf too much.
We love the Fli-Hi. It’s simple, performs and feels lovely, and has a ball flight that does exactly what you’d expect – soaring high but landing softly and coming to a halt very quickly.
Verdict: “The salesmen tell us that ‘nothing feels like a Mizuno’, and I have to agree. This is as solid and confidence-building a utility club as you’ll come across. 2004 refinements make it even better than its predecessor.”
