Hippo is introducing Houdini hybrids to its range of 'entry-level' drivers and fairway metals, describing them as 'the great escape clubs!'

With its shallow face design and cut-away sole, the Houdini claims to deliver a better ball flight and minimise drag at impact from almost any lie. The result, says Hippo, is 'powerful penetrating shots' from variety of lies, including the rough.

Designed with a low torque 75g graphite shaft, Houdini Hybrids are available in 18, 21, 24 and 27-degree lofts in a regular flex only. recommended price is £49.99.
