1. I don't like the way it looks. That "sunburst" pattern is ugly. No big deal, of course, it's a matter of taste.
2. This is the big deal: BB has it backwards. If you want to make a hybrid, make the shaft out of wood and the blade out of carbon. You want to have the great feel and flex of wood on the shaft because it's the part you grab (duh!). You want the low weight of carbon on the blade which is what you swing.
Why did they do this backwards? Looks, I guess. They wanted to show off the wood on the blade, but they could have at least chosen a nicer-looking pattern.
