Pros: I love the natural look, it hits long and straight
Recently, I bought a Mashie I3 to substitute for my 5 wood on days that I may not be swinging well with my woods. As well know, every round of golf is different, some days, we play better with our woods and other days we play better with our irons.
I put the Mashie I3 in my bag to save me on days that I can't use my 5 wood, then again, after using the Mashie a few times on the golf course, I began to like it more and more.
It's easy to get the ball airborne, has a great sound when you strike the ball and the feel is wonderful with the Miyazaki graphite shaft and best of all, it is priced very reasonably.
If anyone is looking for a 3 iron replacement, this Mashie hybrid is a great substitute, enjoy it as much as I have enjoyed it.
