Distance. Accuracy. Forgiveness. A hybrid like no other.
Ben Hogan began developing a hybrid-like club over fifty years ago. He knew that this kind of versatile club would be a great weapon on the course if it were easier to hit and more accurate than a long iron, but provided distances close to that of a fairway wood. The problem was … and remains … that many hybrid clubs don't offer the play ability of either a long iron nor a fairway wood.
Not so with the VKTR hybrids. We've designed these clubs from the ground up to be just what they are … a unique category of clubs. They aren't 'extended' long irons, nor 'compact' fairway woods. They were specifically engineered independently for a given purpose in your bag, between your irons and woods.
One size doesn't fit all.
VKTR hybrids vary in club head size, from 110cc down to 96cc, depending on loft. The stronger lofts have larger heads creating more confidence at address, while the weaker lofted heads are significantly smaller. Not only does this create 'transitional' visual appeal, but it has allowed our engineers to precisely position discretionary weight in each individual club head.
Our R&D team found that most misses with hybrid clubs are caused by poor contact low on the face. This can result in thin, weak shots that barely get airborne. By pushing with as low as possible in the club head, but just behind the club face, we've been able to maximize the Effective Impact Zone in VKTR hybrids. This dramatically improves overall performance and forgiveness.
Customize VKTR hybrids to create desired shot shape
VKTR hybrids give you the unprecedented ability to fine-tune your shot shape to your liking. Our advanced Perimeter Shot Shape Technology (PSST) allows the golfer to move and position 24 grams of discretionary weight around the club head via four separate weight ports. In turn, this varies the location of the Center of Gravity and creates different ball flights.
Regardless of whether you favor a high or low trajectory, fade or draw bias, VKTR hybrids are engineered to deliver penetrating trajectories with steeper landing angles and more spin … all so you can hold greens better with long range approach shots.
Great performance from even a bad lie.
Let's face it; a hybrid club is used often when you need to hit a great recovery shot after a poor tee shot. Very seldom are these important shots hit from the middle of a well-manicured fairway. So, we developed the VKTR hybrids to work best from the rough or fairway bunkers.
Inspired by the performance of our V-Sole® technology in our irons and wedges, our engineers adapted it for VKTR hybrids. Instead of just incorporating V-Sole onto the leading edge of the club, though, VKTR hybrids feature a 360 degree V-Sole design that improves turf interaction from every lie.
A higher bounce leading and trailing edge design allows the club head to slide through the turf more easily. And, the V-Sole designs incorporated into the heel and toe of the club head allow for slight manipulation of the lie angle for better contact on uneven lies.
