    Sole is techy similar to the driver but I really like the looks of it. That thing looks great at address also IMO. Looking forward to seeing what people think about this compared to something like the Mashie, etc. Thanks for the photos!!

    I'll be interested to hear more about this one, I'm not crazy about the shape of the Ping hybrids myself. I've never hit one so I can't hate on it yet but I like a mini FW look to my hybrids personally. I am looking forward to hearing more about this one.

    Well, I for one think this is a vast improvement over the G15 hybrid. I really like the finish on the crown. I bet you one thing: this sucker hits em straight.

    Visually, the shape is unappealing to me, but I'd like to hit one and see how it works.

    I'm one of the few who don't mind the shape. I'd like to hit it as well, just to eliminate the possibilities of eliminating my fairway woods and replacing them with long hybrids.
    In my Stand Bag I play:
    Driver: VR Str8 Fit Pro 10.5
    3 & 4 Hybrids: RBZ Tour
    Irons 4-GW JPX-800 & 825 Pro. Thanks to and many many thanks actually!
    Wedges: 49*, 54*, 61*
    Puter Black SI-3 thanks to THP and SeeMore (though sometimes 2 Ball Black Milled ProType see's a round)
    Ball du jour: ProV1X

    I liked the g15 hybrid and almost bought it, that was until I found Mashie love. These look similar and I am sure will be a quality multi use club. Look forward to hearing what others think about it.

    I agree. The G15 hybrid was pretty hard to look at and while it was good for many, it was nothing special for me. I look forward to the review on this one.
