Look on line for the Nickent 3dx. Great club and they can be found for next to nothing these days.

Love my Cleveland Launcher hybrids, 2 and 4.  So easy to swing and with superb results.

I'll second that. Great sticks, and you can buy them new for 29 bucks on ebay and other sites.

Big fan of the Mizuno MP Fli-Hi.  Looks like a iron but with a little more meat on it.  They can be had on Ebay for $40-$80.

Completely subjective, but I am partial to the Adams V3.

+1 on the Adams V3.  I have the 3, 4, and 5, and depending on the course and weather, I'll usually carry two of them.  I've had the Ping G10, Mizuno Clik Fli-Hi's or something like that, and Adams A7.  I really like the small head and easy swing of the V3's.  Can I work the ball with them?  I can work it straight almost everytime, which at my handicap (and yours I suspect) is what we are looking for.

I've tried a ton, and finally found one I like, Adams A12 Pro.

Second what Te3point5 said...it's completely subjective. That being said, I'd recommend the Adams A12 line (standard or pro), the SS Super Hybrid, and the Cleveland Mashie. All can be found in the $50-100 range.

Personally I'm looking at the cleveland mashie and the cobra baffler h rail. I'm intrigued by the cobra because I've read it is extremely forgiving but I'm still researching. I'm a terrible golfer but I didn't have a great experience with the original nickent 3dx genex. I could get some nice distance but it wasn't as forgiving as I need which is a lot. I believe that the original 3dx was relatively workable for what it was but can't rightly remember.

The Mashie is a great club, plus you get the premium Miyazaki shaft standard. They are dirt cheap right now also.

Agreed with that about the Adams a12 pro I tried it against the rbz 2 Nike covert cobra amp cell and a few others but nothing compared to the $80 dollar last years model of the Adams hybrid. Well worth the money and a must buy if in the market for a new hybrid.

My mashie is pretty solid out of the junk. Beware if you get one and regrip it, the shaft is oversized.

As stated before, Adams Idea Tech V3 is the best imo. Just got mine recently and it's a tremendous club the few chances I've had to hit it. Can be found for very cheap too, I got mine brand new for $60 from rockbottom.

if cheap is your main focus, then used is the way to go, buy your self a bag full of $10 sticks and hope for the best

I picked up a Nike VR 3H last year brand new for right around $50. Looks nice and more importantly feels and sounds solid on impact. It has 21º loft and the voodoo shaft.

    • Ball likely in casual water but uncertain
      You use the S&D option of Rule 28 at any time you want. It doesn't matter if you can't see it, can't identify it or have it staring you in the face with your ID in dayglo pink. To use either of the other options you have to be able to identify it.
    • 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.
