Mizuno CLK hybrids have been launched with the promise of providing a more consistent ball speed across a comprehensive range of rescues.
Changes to the face and sole in the CLK design, compared to previous models of Mizuno hybrids, help provide a higher ball flight without sacrificing distance or the forgiveness you expect from your hybrids.
Available in a variety of different lofts, the hybrid 2-5 range offers the perfect blend of options to bridge the gap between irons and woods.
What Mizuno say about the CLK Hybrids:
“Utilising stronger maraging steel, we are able to have a thinner face, more aggressive and flexible wave sole, providing faster and more consistent ball speed across the face,” said David Llewellyn, Director of R&D at Mizuno.
Mizuno’s marketing adds: “Fill the gap between irons and fairway woods – ideal for transitioning from your longest iron to most lofted fairway wood – with a selection of lofts, each adjustable by 4 degrees.
“Easy to strike pure from the fairway, producing a high efficient flight – attacking tight pins from further out than ever before.”
Mizuno CLK Hybrids Design
The CLK hybrids feature a sleek black club head and some interesting technological advances to improve on the performance of previous models from Mizuno.
Mizuno have made the MAS1C Maraging Face thinner than before to maximise energy transfer and produce faster ball speeds from across the entire clubface – meaning off-centre strikes still produce good distance.
The sole is now dual wave and has been made more flexible and has a wider profile. The design idea is to create a higher ball flight to help stop balls quicker on the putting greens thanks to a steeper landing angle.
The crown is flat and wide in the CLK hybrids to help inspire confidence on those long approaches, and refinements to the structure have helped create an impressive solid impact sound.
That all adds up to a range of hybrids that Mizuno are branding as “higher flying and improved sound”.
The hybrids can be customised in terms of loft with overlaps to create the perfect gapping. The loft ranges available are 2-Hybrid (14-18 degrees), 3-Hybrid (17-21 degrees), 4-Hybrid (20-24 degrees) and 5-Hybrid (23-27 degrees).
Mizuno CLK Hybrids Verdict
The CLK hybrids have been honed to maximise performance thanks to some clever tweaks and additions from previous rescues from Mizuno.
Not only are they attractive, but they perform very well too. You can expect a higher ball flight coupled with the ability to hold greens better thanks to modifications made to the sole design.
The range of lofts in the CLKs is particularly impressive and you should be able to fill all the gaps at the top end of your bag with these from Mizuno.
