The Wilson FG Tour M3 Hybrid is the first adjustable hybrid from Wilson and I think they have done a very good job with it.

Compared with their previous hybrids for distance players, Wilson have come over all sleek and sophisticated with this better player hybrid. The long head and prominent sole weight do look similar to certain Adams Golf hybrids, but Wilson have put their own spin on things.

The face is long and tall so you get the visual impression of the club playing like a long iron, but with the forgiveness that should come with a hybrid.

The head is a dark grey colour and seems to sit quite flat at address. When over the club you can see the thin black line of of the face across the top line which is subtle and I really like for alignment.

Wilson FG Tour M3 Hybrid Address

The other thing you will notice at address is the new Wilson Staff Multi Fit System adjustable hosel, which is a little on the chunky side compared to others in the market. It enables you to change the loft up or down 1° and change the lie from standard to 2° up which does not seem much.

However clubs with wider ranges of loft changes have to cope with the resulting changes in lie through the head design, so with the smaller loft changes, the FG Tour M3 manages to cope with this issue well.

The other aspect of the Multi-Fit System is the adjustable weight in the sole and it is good to see Wilson provide you with a nice pouch, a wrench and a choice of 3 and 11 gram weights to interchange with the standard 7 gram weight and encourage you to do use them.

Swinging the club with each of the weights soon sorts out the one you like the best for feel, but you really need to go on a launch monitor with a WIlson fitter to get the right combination of loft and weight to optimise the performance for your swing.

The FG Tour M3 comes with an Aldila Phenom shaft as standard and is perfect for this type of club in terms or performance and looks. The flight is higher than an equivalent long iron and is nice and penetrating so it will suit the eye of better players who prefer a neutral hybrid.

The FG Tour M3 hybrid is designed for 'feel players' and on the course it certainly did provide a lovely strike at impact and a great sound. The head was pretty forgiving and it was easy to shape shots left, right and high and low.

Often the hybrid in a better player range of woods can be a let down, but not with the FG Tour M3 as it has all the sleek looks of the FG Tour M3 driver and FG Tour M3 fairway and is the pick of the range. Most Wilson products are competitively priced, so better players looking for a forgiving and playable hybrid should cast there eyes over the FG Tour M3.
