In our test we found that all the clubs in the Wilson Staff FYbrid family are easy to play from all kinds of fairway lies and the railed sole minimizes the club bouncing into the ball at impact.
The three Wilson Staff FYbrid hybrids in the range are best off a good lie in the fairway and hold their own from the light semi rough.
They were pleasing on the eye and the only thing to be aware off is that they will probably not suit tight links lies as the leading edge is a little raised as the railed sole moves the belly of the sole back under the centre of the club.
Worth a try if your a parkland player needing help with the long game.

Wilson Staff Fybrid Utility Club - Product Details
Before I begin, I have not used any other hybrids so cannot compare them. This review is what I think of these ones which I own. I bought them solely on the fact Padraig Harrisson used one for that fantastic finish in the Open
I play off 9 and still find it hard to hit irons 5 and below, my game was more tactical. I'd tried cheap fairway woods but hated them so was adament hybrids were not for me. I bought 2 of these in an offer after the Open and wow, they changed my game and I have a whole arsenal of new fancy tricks up my sleeve. Remember folks hybrids run so adjust your game accordingly.
Now to the facts: Looks...OK they look good but what's that got to do with how they hit? I started with the Fybrid 2H and the 3H. I would say get one or the other as they're really as close as makes no difference.
I then bought a 4H - the best club in my bag next to my Vokey wedge. Versatilie, straight and great. Not so much loft as to balloon in the wind and you can just pull off some gorgeous shots. It goes 220 yards ( I can hit a 350 yard drive as a comparison) and is a truly lovely club.
I have now bought a 5H, to replace my 5 iron. i will miss aiming my iron directly for the pin and having it stop neatly but you have to learn to compensate. I reckon my 5 iron shots were 85% good and 15% terrible on fairways and as low as 40% good in rough and semi rough as I had a tendency to hit down and shank and get caught up in all sorts of nastiness. My 5H, however, smashes through the grass and hits that ball through mud and all sorts of rubbish.
There you have it, just what i think, and there may be better ones out there but for now ill stick with these badgers because they're damn good.
As for the downside: Only thing i can think about is folk that snub them thinking they're for beginners..... ahem Padraig...Open....money in pocket twice!
The Fybrid Hybrids sit well behind the ball and get the ball up very quickly. They are easy to hit, but the flight is not as penetrating as other Hybrids I’ve hit. They were fairly easy to shape and the club looks good and gives you plenty of confidence. Flight is just a bit to high though.
