The HL4 hybrid may be the workhorse of the HL4 series. As the name suggest, this club does the work of a game-improvement iron, while adding solid distance of a wood. The HL4 series is a great collection of clubs that promote playability for the weekend golfer.
The Tour Edge HL4 hybrid is a great looking club. A gloss black crown with a leading edge of silver gives a classy, no nonsense look. The silver leading edge is a great alignment aid to help you square the club face.
The HL4 is about the size of a standard iron in length and slightly smaller than a fairway wood in depth. It’s a solid looking club that gives you a great sense of confidence when standing over your shot. I just knew I was going to hit this one well.
At impact, the HL4 Hybrid feels more like an iron than a wood. When holding the HL4, the head gives you a slight “heavy” feel. Not heavy as a hindrance, but weight that you know will help you blast out of gnarly rough or give you extra yards to a tight fairway. This might be in part to the stock 65 gm Mamiya shaft.
As forgiving as the HL4 hybrid is, off center contact can be felt immediately in the hands. You will lose some distance, but ball flight stays pretty well on target. You can feel and hear the misses. Impact in the center of the face is rewarded with an immediate soft sensation that launches the ball high and far. This club gives great feedback on hits and misses, allowing you to get a real sense of your swing and contact area.

The HL4 is a versatile golf club that preforms well from the rough, fairway, and can be used off the tee to find the fairway on a tight driving hole.

Contact was easy, solid, and, produced a great recovery from trouble.
I do not have a hybrid as a gamer, mostly relying on long irons and fairway woods. The Tour Edge HL4 3 Hybrid fell in between my 3 hybrid-iron and my 5 wood.
