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.

balls : Dunlop Super Loco, Maxfli Noodles - or any "good" ball when it goes on sale ...

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!

    • My Swing (smripley)
      I've been Playing Golf for:   I have been playing golf recreationally for about 5 years.  However, over the past 9 months I have very much been trying to understand the proper technique and have taken a few lessons.  I have gone from over 105 to consistently in the low / mid 90s, but I can't break-threw any lower it seems at this point due to the inconsistency in putting the ball off the tee and hitting decent approach shots when it is in play.  My ultimate goal is to  a close / sub 10 handicap.  I feel I am a solid ball striker, but I am just not able to stay consistent for multiple rounds.  
      My current handicap index or average score is: Handicap 19
      My typical ball flight is: When struck well, draw right to left.
      The shot I hate or the "miss" I'm trying to reduce/eliminate is: Inconsistency.  Off the tee with the driver I am highly inconsistent and not comfortable.   Hello, thank you for viewing my swing. As I start to understand the issues with my swing, I realize I have the following issues: Unbalanced. Weight being distributed past my right foot. Swaying to much away from the target on backswing. Slightly shut clubface at top. May be coming up on the ball near impact as opposed to driving through the ball. Any tips you could provide would be greatly appreciated.

    • Free towel while you play at a public course?
      I'm curious at how many courses TST Community have played that give out free towels when they play?

      My course gives out free towels for use on the course, but sometimes they are all used up.  We trade them for clean ones every Thursday, so if it rains a lot, we may not have towels to give.  I have seen people get really pissed when we run out.  I mean, they didn't come to golf here just for a free towel right? I mean it's a nice perk when available, but I don't think they should expect it every time.  You should come to a course prepared, especially if rain is in the forecast. 

      I have only seen my course give out towels, though.
    • US Navy's experimental railgun [WSJ]
      It's scary what this weapon is capable of, but have read about these things in science fiction novels, don't really keep up w/military technology to know this is was actually a real thing. The way it's fired is pretty interesting nonetheless, that's some massive electric power required. http://www.wsj.com/articles/a-first-look-at-americas-supergun-1464359194
    • Standing on Tee Marker for Aiding a Swing
      You're voluntarily placing the ball in such a position near an immovable obstruction that the stance is already built for you: the intent is exactly the same. If your ball comes to rest near an immovable obstruction, you may play the ball as it lies, but you are also entitled to full relief from the obstruction. The one thing you're not allowed to do is drop the ball so that the obstruction is still interfering with your swing, but in a more advantageous way than it was originally. The only difference here is that off the tee, playing the ball as it lies isn't an option. Whether or not there is a specific rule for this scenario, there are multiple grounds to conclude that it is in violation of the rules of golf, and warrants a two-stroke penalty. Unless you're positive that standing on the tee marker is the only way you can avoid losing your tee ball, it's not worth it.
