Iron/Hybrid Combo

10 posts in this topic

Has anybody played the Adams V3 combo irons/hybrid combo set?  I just got them with graphite lite flex (senior) flex shafts.  Yep, getting old here.  I think the newer ones have the gun metal irons, but mine are a little older, I think, and have the regular looking metal irons with gunmetal hybrids.  I'd love to hear what guys think of these if you've used them before.  Thanks in advance.

I got my daughter almost the exact same set. We had the store cut down it down to a ladies size for her. She really likes these clubs, and played pretty well with them. The ladies flex of a similar ladies version was too flexible for her, and the monitor results were better (longer distances/less deviation) with the senior flex so the pro recommended this one for her.

The hybrids are very nice, and I like the way they made the complete package. It looks really nice.

Would you guys mind letting me know how well you like the 3 and 4 hybrids on that set?

I bought the 4 clone from diamondtour (before I knew what a hybrid was) just to test the waters... Anyway, the bottom of the face / front of the sole is in front of the shaft....:

I'm curious about how you like hitting the 3 and 4 clubs, and are they designed with the same thing as I mention above?

To address your question... I do not own a set, but I have a 4 hybrid clone, and I wasn't able to use it but a few times, but the few times I used it, the ball launched well and went where I was aiming. Which is important, I suppose.

I'll let you know, but it won't be until I can get out once the weather breaks.  I have only hit into a net so far.  And, there isn't a 3.  The hybrids are a 4, 5, and 6.  I might go hit in a simulator this weekend.  Not sure how much feedback that will provide, but I'll be sure to let yo uknow.

Dude, you are absolutely killing me.  Can we at least pretend it's your teenage son?  :)

duotone,

This Diamondtour hybrid has what is known as onset . It is the opposite of offset, and originally was introduced into wedges and irons as a way to prevent shanking. If you have seen any gooseneck irons, these employ onset. I don't have any reports on how onset works with long clubs.

Diamondtour Hybrid

V3 Hybrid

The Idea V3 hybrids have "cambered sole relief" which features a recessed trough cut in back half of sole which lessens turf drag. Comes up with two "minirails" to prevent digging in.

If you look closely, the V3 does not appear to have onset. The top edge of the clubface is behind the front edge of the hosel. Also, the V3 has a more teardrop shaped head; the DT is boxy.

I'll leave V3 users to tell how they like the hybrids.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I'm more familiar with the Idea V4 hybrids - these have the velocity slots on top and bottom of the clubhead. I carry a 4H, and sometimes the 3H. The 4H replaces my 3 iron.

I played the Tech V3 set for a couple of seasons.  Something came loose inside the 7-iron that is half hybrid / half iron.  They replaced it without issue as you can imagine.  I liked the lower end of the set and the 4-6 hybrids. Also liked the 7-iron.  Wasn't very happy with the rest of the shorter irons in the set.  They just came off as kind of cheaply made and didn't have any real identify.  Kind of too lightweight ... didn't have any real substance or 'punch' to them fro the fairway.

One thing I REALLY didn't like was the black finish was a 'powder-coat' finish that wore off really fast.  Few shots with the SW from traps ground the finish off very quickly!

Sold the set before last season and went back to Taylormade hybrids and irons.  Just a TM 'homer' here, I guess.

Enjoy the new sticks!  You'll really appreciate the hybrids in the set.  Adams is a true leader in hybrid technology.

    • GPS, WHY ?
      You still need a baseline average of your typical distances to go by, and GPS helps you learn your yardages so you know what club to pull in the first place. You "guess" at all of these already. GPS just gives you an accurate starting point to work from. How can you know for sure that you didn't pull the wrong club? This is probably the most important point: distances markers on golf courses aren't always accurate and even if they are, they only give you the distance to the center of the green. They don't tell you how deep or wide the green is, what distance you need to avoid hazards, etc. They also don't help you off the tee, either.
    • GPS, WHY ?
      If you have a cell phone odds are that you already have a gps device. All you need do is download an app, some are free, and you now have a gps for golf
    • GPS, WHY ?
      If knowing the distance isn't important to you, then why would you ever choose an 8 iron for a shot instead of a 7 iron? But, if all the courses you play have plenty of easy to locate distance markers, then you probably don't need to spend a fortune on a range finder. Here's a free one: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.mozosoft.rangefinder&hl=en
    • GPS, WHY ?
      As of late I have played with a few people using some sort of GPS device, which in turn  made me envious, and I have therefore been looking on the internet with a view to buying one. Then I stopped and thought, WHAT DO I NEED IT FOR. Firstly, I am not a great golfer, and the length I can hit a ball with a club varies a lot based on how well I make contact. Secondly, what if it is windy, what if it is cold, what if it is wet, and finally, what if I am hitting a ball uphill or downhill. All a GPS would help me do is estimate what club I need on a dry day, with no wind, and on a flat plain. Of course, I and can take these factors into account, in which case I would be guessing again, and then I may as well not have one anyway. Like most people, I quite often hit over the green, or leave it short, but to be honest that has more to do with my golfing skills rather than the wrong club. All courses in the UK have distance markers, and to be honest you have to be pretty stupid not to be able to work things out from there.  Needless to say, some of you would have already spent a fortune on such a device, and will reply to this post telling me how wonderful they are. So, please go ahead and convince me !!
