MIZUNO HYBRID REVIEWS
We tested: 16°, 19°, 22°, 25°
Our take: These hybrids look and feel as though they’re designed for better players, but we’re not fooled. They’re surprisingly forgiving, and players of any ability will reap the benefits of higher launches and consistent ballspeeds across much of the clubface. Said one of our testers, “I can mishit it and the ball still flies straight. That just doesn’t happen with the hybrid I have in my bag.” Others chimed in saying that “it cuts through nasty grass very easily.”

Mizuno CLK Hybrids
The details: Comes in a compact profile with a new MAS1C Maraging Face for added strength and durability, resulting in faster ballspeeds and more distance. The Dual Wave on the sole helps the ball launch higher and land at a steeper angle — two things you want when hitting a club designed to bring the game seamlessly between longer irons and fairway woods.
We tested: 20°, 23°, 26°
Our take: With a high, draw-biased flight, the ST-X is built for moderate swing speed golfers who require a high launch long-iron replacement. The confidence-inspiring profile speaks to those who still need some additional room in the heel and toe for the occasional mishit. As one tester claimed, “It’s an automatic addition to my setup. The clean look is easy to embrace, and I’m noticing at least an extra club over my current hybrid.” Speaking of things that are easy to embrace, this hybrid should be added to your list, pronto.
Mizuno ST-X 220 hybrids
The details: At 1.8mm in thickness, the MAS1C face found on the ST-X is the thinnest Mizuno has ever produced. You know what that means: More distance. Additional tech includes Harmonic Impact Research that lends a satisfying sound and feel and an ultra-light waffle crown. With less weight positioned up high, designers were able to increase the deep internal weighting to help you turn the ball over with ease.
