Hybrid help

11 posts in this topic

As I have just began playing and I am tight on cash, my set is getting built slowly. I have my iron set (Mizuno T-ZOID mx11) but I want to change my longer irons, the four and five, for a hybrid. I am wondering what is an easy hybrid to hit and one that is draw bias. I was reading you can get clubs that are draw bias and fade bias.

Also seeing I need to purchase two hybrids to take the place of my four iron and five iron I was looking for one in a nice friendly budget.

Thanks

Check Global Golf, they are a sponsor here. I found this Callaway on their site under Used clubs.

I think Adams makes the best hybrids across the board. They seem to have a model that fits everyone, so go to a shot and hit some

What degree am I looking for them to be to replace my four iron and three iron?

That will depend more on distance gaps more than purely lofts. Many hybrids have a draw bias and that's why many players with high swing speeds and or hit a draw normally stay away from them. Adams golf makes the best hybrids in golf IMHO but many companies make a darn good one. Look for something a few years old if you want cheap. I have the original RBZ 3 hybrid which now can be found for under $100.

Typically the hybrid 21 degree replaces a 3 iron. 24 degree hybrid replaces a four iron. However not all  iron set lofts are the same. To be sure you need to research the specs of your set, However most Mizuno sets have a 21 degree 3 iron and a 24 or 25 degree 4.

It depends on whether the hybrids are traditional - between a FW and an iron in shaft length - on an iron-replacement hybrid (has same loft and shaft length as comparable irons). Derrick likely is talking about iron-replacement hybrids.

I have an Adams V4 4H (22*), and it goes about 12 yards longer than my 4i.

If you're mixing models (hybrid not the same as the irons), you'll have to hit the hybrids and see how far they go compared to your irons. If you want to stay in the Mizuno family, you might look for FLI-HI hybrids (probably 3H and 4H).

Also, if you want a draw bias, I would stay away from hybrids with a Pro or Tour head: These would have a square face, or might be slightly open.

Overall, Adams probably has the best name for hybrids.

I was talking about iron replacement hybrids. Before that I had two Adams traditional hybrids...the 3 was 19 degrees and the four was 21.  They were the Adams Boxers and were more like rescue clubs. The Callaway Tour hybrids have less offset than the non tour ones. Face is not 1 degree open like the Callaway tour FW woods, but the less offset is supposed to make it easier to work the ball from left to right. I have one Callaway tour Hybrid, a 2 18 degree and I will admit it isn't the easiest club to use off the deck but I hit it better than the 5 wood it has replaced. I aslo use it as my stinger rescue club out of the pine needles and  from under the trees.
