Wilson Staff Launch Pad FY
Our take: Hybrids are great friends to golfers of all levels. But Wilson’s latest entry to the category is an especially staunch ally to newbies, 90-plus shooter and anyone, really, who struggles with a slice. Wilson actually calls the Launch Pad an ‘FY Club,’ meaning somewhere between a fairway wood and hybrid, but it holds its most weight in the hybrid category, where GOLF’s testers were enthralled. In our testing, the Launch Pad line lived up to the marketing behind it, with their draw-biased traits and lightweight heads, which helped increase ball speeds while limiting errors to the right.

Wilson Staff Launch Pad FY Club
The details: In its own lab testing, Wilson found that a 41-inch shaft paired with a 19.5-degree face was the easiest-to-hit combination for golfers with 10-handicaps and higher. Along with those specs, the Launch Pad FY also has an ultra-light club head and a springy face for power and forgiveness, making it a natural replacement for such hard-to-hit clubs as 3-irons, 3-hybrids 7-woods.
