Looking for a high loft Hybrid

9 posts in this topic

I was wondering if any of you know of some high loft hybrid/utility clubs? The highest I have found so far is a 30 degree hybrid (it's a Precept ECU 30*). I bought this club last week and I love it. It has replaced my 4 and 5 irons. I was just wondering if anyone here knows of a hybrid with a higher loft than 30? To replace either a 6 or 7 iron.

Thanks a lot!

I think Adams Golf and Nickent both sell full sets of hybrid-irons. I've seen an Adams set with a pitching wedge that looks like a hybrid.

Callaway goes up to a 7 Hybrid and Tour Edge has their Iron-Woods all the way to a lob wedge.

Thanks for the replies those Tour Edge Iron-Woods look interesting. Anyone have any experience with them?

Also does anyone have any other suggestions?

I play the tour edge 4hybrid. I definitely hit it farther than my old 4 iron, especially out of the rough. I do have to be careful at address it is kind of easy to set the club so that it is delofted or closed.

.... I switched to Tour Edge about a year ago .... and I've been extemely happy with them ....

I started with the 4 hybrid with a test romp from a little store called "Second Swing", and I had a chance to play 3 courses with it and loved it .. then bought a new 21*, then the 24*, etc, etc, etc --- as you can see from below ...

High loft..? .. the 41* 9 and the 51* Attack Wedge are both a killer .... you can drop an olive in a Martini glass from 125 yards out ... "especially" good if you play courses with hills and big slopes .. deep rough.? No problemo ..



whats in the bag.??

Driver : Tour Edge Jmax 460 Carbon with the Fuji Vista Pro 50 shaft.
Woods : only one left after switching to hybrids - Adams ST #7 22*.
Hybrids : Tour Edge 21*, 24*, 30*, 41* and the 50* Attack Wedge with the Fuji graphite R shafts.
Wedges : Warrior 56*, 60*, 64* with the Harrison Shafts.
Putter : Ping Anser 2F.
balls : Dunlop Super Loco, Maxfli Noodles - or any "good" ball when it goes on sale ...



Home course: Grey Hawk.

at the risk of sounding like the infomercial, I LOVE my perfect club. From 150 - 180, it is my go to club, period. Hard to hit it badly, feels great on 99% of my hits. 21 degrees and I think a 41" shaft? Got it for $70 w/ graphite at Dick's - it hasn't left my bag in over a year. Best money ever spent on a club for me. Even if I can't hit anything else straight, I know I can always go to it in the clutch and nail a shot. :) They do offer the 24 degree Perfect Accuracy for more loft. You can also putt it like a 7 iron out of the rough and it'll plunk it dead straight with (sorry) perfect roll and release to the hole. Saved my bacon and made me some $$ on the backside of a Nassau!

    • The Most Common Swing Flaw
      I'm sure there will be arguments later but there is one piece of information I think a lot of golfers can benefit from. I hope to save some people from buying the online swing tip scams. The most common flaw I see in swings is rotating the forearms one way or the other. Most people don't realize you don't have to rotate your forearms or hands at all in the golf swing, in fact it's better if you don't. The arms can stay just as square as they are at address. The arms follow the rotation of the shoulders on the plane. The arms slightly trail the body on the through swing, creating some additional lag to hip lag, and then eventually they pass the body much later. The club face can stay as square as it was at impact the whole time, many PGA  pros do this. Hunter Mahan is a good example. The only movement the arms really have to make is an up and down one. There is a popular drill where students are told to pick the club straight up from address, hinge it, and rest it on their right shoulder (for righties), and then turn the shoulders 90 degrees and voila, the top of the backswing. To get to this position people will do all kinds of arm and hand contortions all over the place, which is fine. The only problem is, is on the way down, you don't want to be doing these things, and the law of physics states that every action has an equal and opposite reaction, so you will likely do going down what you did going up, just in reverse. All you really have to do is rotate your shoulders and let the arms stay connected as they were at address, after all this is why you've spent so much time working on the set up position! The swing is a moving and rotating set up position. Some people actually get to the top perfectly, but then insist on going way beyond parallel, ruining the glorious work! The problem here is, the more your arms lift past your shoulders, the more you have to wait for them to come down, for that huge 1mph arm swing speed boost.  You're of course thinking, why the heck do people do all these things? One reason people do this is because it feels natural, at least that's the reason experienced golfers do it. It feels more repeatable to them, and they like it, it feels good. Power to them. But there are plenty of golfers who do these things that aren't happy with their game, so why do they do it? They do these things because it feels like they can get maximum strength this way. Doing it the efficient way would cost them a lot of power, because their strongest and biggest muscles have not coordinated yet to hit a golf ball. When we do basic things like jumping and lifting, things we've done all our lives, we use the most efficient muscles and most supported ones. But when we have to hit a golf ball, those muscles don't know how to get involved, so we use the smaller, weaker, faster ones, to get the job done with some short term speed. The truth is, we can hit the ball a lot further using the right muscles, but many golfers believe they are hitting it better with whatever move they currently have. They aren't wrong, at the moment they can't hit it with the right muscles, because the right muscles aren't trained. But if they stopped what they are doing and started training the right muscles to support the swing, would they hit it better, faster farther? You bet your ball washer they would. So put down the club, put your arms across your chest like you learned at your very first golf clinic, dig into your hip sockets, and rotate those shoulders. Do away with the crazy arm motions and the bending and unbending at the waist. The 4some behind you will thank you for it.
    • Anybody play golf without keeping score on a regular basis?
      Certainly. Only keep a record of pars in my notebook - nothing else, consequently my index could be anywhere between 16 and 36. Aim is to par every hole on the course at some stage.
    • My Swing (coop6)
      The video you linked of Rory do you see how there is zero club face rotation after the ball?
    • Ball likely in casual water but uncertain
      thanks @ColinL great answer. Question: Are there any times where you can take an unplayable if you can't identify your ball, like if you can't get close enough to read the letters. I thought there were.
    • Ball likely in casual water but uncertain
      Casual water is an abnormal ground condition (AGC).   The idea behind getting free relief from it is that it is considered “abnormal” i.e. not a normal condition you are expected to play from.   In the same way,  an obstruction being by definition an artificial obect,  is not a natural feature of a golf course and so you get free relief from interference by one. in both cases, the relief is available even if you don’t find your ball which you would think reasonable if you knew perfectly well that your ball had gone into a large patch of casual water and disappeared from sight.   A tree, on the other hand is a natural feature of the course and you get no favours if you put your ball up against one or in it: you have to play the ball as it lies.  If it’s in the tree, you don’t have to retrieve it in order to deem it unplayable, but you do have to identify it as yours.
