Having trouble hitting hybrid

7 posts in this topic

Just acquired Calloway Diablo Edge #4 H and having trouble hitting it consistently.  I have no problems with my irons or fairway woods including the very low profile Olimar Tri-metal 13 deg or 21 deg.  Only thing I can think of is the shaft is a lot more flexible than the others (my irons are APEX 3). This hybrid came with an "A" flex (which I did not notice when I got it on Ebay.  I have not given up on it yet as I have not had chance to use it that much.  I don't know whether to sell and get another, or simply get a new shaft put on. I am thinking it more cost effective just to list on ebay and with proceeds get a replacement. (If the flex is the problem and not something "I" am doing wrong).  My set up is much like my 3 iron, but perhaps a couple inches further back and I do try to hit down like an iron.

We cannot give you much advice until you tell us what happens during the swing. Do you chunk it? Top it? Shank it?

just not good  solid hits. I probably top it more than anything. Could also be hitting on upswing too much (ball placement?) I will keep working at it. I did try and slow down the swing which seems to help a great deal, so I am thinking it is the flex that is bothering me. Its kinda weird given that I can hit my one iron pretty pure most of the time. The hybrid should be a cinch you would think. Hell, I will probably wake up tomorrow, give it a shot, and wonder what all the fuss was about.

I had the same with a Titleist 910H 17*, or my Nike Machspeed driver that showed up with L flex. I just slowed down by say 40%, sweeped it easy and amazingly the ball still flew as far as a full killer swing. Unfortanatelly for me when I have my hybrids in hand and see the graphite shaft I think "Driver Kill Swing" when it should be "easy sweeper swing...with a side of power" I over drive my swing alot on graphite shafts...instead of just letting the club do the work.

You make a very valid point. I definitely noticed a difference off practice mat when I slowed. Like a lot of people, I tend to answer my own questions. I guess we are mostly seeking validation.

Thank you.
