Considering how much we were impressed with the Wilson D-100 driver, we were excited to get the headcover off the hybrid. Unfortunately, it did not quite live up to the driver.

Classed as more of an over-sized hybrid, the head design is quite unique and has an almost triangular pebble-like shape to it. The black finish and white grooves look sharp behind the ball and the extended hosel means the white shaft doesn't distract from the ball at address.

Like the rest of the range, the D-100 hybrid benefits from a great shaft: the Matrix Ozik Altus 5.6. At 60 grams it is light for a hybrid, but the difference wasn't as evident as the driver.

Now, be warned, once you've hit one shot with the D-100 hybrid, you won't forget the sound. The high-pitched 'ting' is sharp and loud and overly harsh in our opinion. The feel is similar hard and sharp. Probably worth alerting you playing partners before you take this out your bag.

The hybrid is a fraction shorter heel to toe than the equivalent D100 iron. However it was remarkably forgiving and easy to hit for its size.

Flight-wise, the performance was quite high for a club of this loft, but with less draw-bias than you might expect, thanks to very little off-set in the design.

Our opinion is that this will be the 'marmite' club in the range, players will either love it or hate it. The noise is very distinct and the looks are clean but unique. The performance was good, but it didn't live up to the rest of the impressive D-100 range of clubs.
