Yonex’s Ezone GT hybrid features new face design for stable ball flight and a new high-performance shaft for maximum power. Here is what Carly Frost thought when she put it through its paces.
By Carly Frost
Our hybrids feature a new face design concept, slanted grooves produce a stable, accurate ball flight with the precision of an iron. The slanted grooves prevent grass and moisture from coming between the clubface and the ball, helping to stabilise the ball flight and reduce right and left side spin for straighter shots. They are fitted with our new high-performance graphite shaft that provides rapid SnapBack for maximum power, launching the ball at a higher initial velocity whilst maintaining stability at the tip.
The first thing that will strike you about this hybrid are the unusual slanting grooves. Although they serve to help straighten your shots out, you do lose the benefit of lining the straight groove lines up to your target. Performance-wise I loved the sound, ball flight and effortless control this club offered.
I didn’t see any dramatic improvements in my dispersion, but then a hybrid is a control club anyway. It comes with an adjustable screwdriver so you have the added benefit of being able to tinker with the loft to suit your own set-up needs, which further improves the versatility of this stylish club.
