First off the Pro Combo Utility Iron is definitely geared towards the better golfer. It is similar in looks to the original Mizuno Fli-Hi with a little bit shallower face.
It was really just a matter of time before Callaway entered the hybrid market. Callaway has always been a leader in the fairway wood market and they have used many of those proven technologies in their new Heavenwood.
We can all thank TaylorMade for the recent popularity of the hybrid wood. It was a few years back when the first TaylorMade Rescue club came out and changed the way we hit our long irons. It is not uncommon to now see someone with two or even three of these in their bag.
The hybrid club has become more and more popular over the past few years. Clubs once thought to be “gimmicky” and “ugly” are now found in a large majority of bags. Ben Hogan has always been considered a very traditional company and even they have jumped on the hybrid bandwagon.
