New Yonex SD Ezone hybrids and irons


Like the Ezone SD driver and fairway woods, the irons and hybrids have been designed to offer more distance and forgiveness for game-improvers rather than Tour professionals.

The SD hybrid features a stainless steel sold and face while the Carbon Graphite Composite crown allows 15 per cent of the weight to be redistributed within the head as part of Yonex's Inner Weight System, which moves the CG lower and deeper for a higher ball flight.

The shallow back design also optimised the CG position to deliver better results off the fairway, the tee and the rough. The new low drag sole works with the Muscle Power face to deliver good yardage, even on off-centre strikes.

The iron, while designed as a game-improver iron, is shaped to have great shelf appeal in the form of stunning aesthetics. But these hide the technology at play in the head including a bevelled sole design for better turf interaction, a double undercut cavity for more forgiveness and a graphite plate behind the face to dampen vibrations.

The Ezone hybrid comes in lofts from 19 degrees and is priced at £129 while the irons are available at £699 (steel) and £799 (graphite) for 4-SW.
